..in some quarters, Mr. Obama is derided as "the worst president of the postwar era."Hamada-sensei, dude, are you sure you should be publishing this stuff as a post on your official blog? (Link - J)
Of the many, the biggest reason for the collapse of [Barack Obama's] reputation is his bad relationship with his wife.
It is an open secret that the pair are already in negotiations for a divorce and that "they are waiting for his term in office to end, at which point they will separate."
If you ask the President, he will tell you, "I cannot show my face to the voters after her spendthrift ways."
On the other hand, if you get Mrs. [Obama] to speak, she will tell you, "The President is a pathological philanderer. He uses the Secret Service in this regard and has them cover up the evidence."
