You know, I’m not quite sure how I feel about this. Yes, the Woods affair is a trending topic in today’s society and yes, I’m one that completely follows all of the details on it because I’m an odd, voyeuristic, celebrity gossip lover but it comes across as a little odd when your own President is weighing in on a topic that, well, doesn’t really matter in comparison to a whole lot of things going on around the world. Like, at all.
“I don’t want to comment on his personal relationship with his wife and family, but I’m a strong believer that anybody can look within themselves, find their flaws and fix them.”
The Big O also states that he “suspects that he [Tiger] will try to put his life back together again.” I voted for the current Commander-in-Chief and so far yes, I do think he’s doing a great job but something about him speaking on the Tiger topic kind of rubbed me the wrong way. I mean, it’s not as if President Obama is just another high-profile celebrity adding his two cents on another scandalous celebrity’s downfall, right? He’s the President of the most powerful country in the world. Why bother with such menial things, in the grand scheme, as Tiger’s scheming ways?
I do respect his advice on the topic. President Obama outwardly appears to have a strong and faithful marriage and a wonderfully close-knit family as a result. Obama is a wonderful man and I feel that he has the best intentions of all at heart. There is no love lost between Barack and I, but still … maybe he should be focusing a little more on national security than speaking irreverently to People magazine about the antics of celebrities who’ve fallen from grace.
