Obama: Please Ignore Me, I Hate the Attention

Gabe, sending this to me, is speechless, except to sputter "Rly? Rly? Rly?."

President Barack Obama says only once since Jan. 20 has White House life annoyed him.

It was the Saturday in May when, trying to be a good husband, he kept a campaign promise to take his wife, Michelle, to New York after the election for one of their "date nights" - dinner and a Broadway play.

"People made it into a political issue," Obama told The New York Times Magazine for an article about the Obamas' marriage, appearing in the Nov. 1 issue. The article was posted on the Times' Web site on Wednesday.

"If I weren't president, I would be happy to catch the shuttle with my wife to take her to a Broadway show, as I had promised her during the campaign, and there would be no fuss and no muss and no photographers," he said. "That would please me greatly."

If you weren't president, I think a lot of people would be pleased, dude.

No fuss, no muss:

This poor woman. She just walks into a photography studio in a Vera Wang original and the relentless papparazzi just start snapping pictures of her like madmen. Can't you leave these modest people to their privacy?!!?!
