Tom Willis of WJXT in Jacksonville, Fla., recently suggested that President Barack Obama should try his hand at another occupation once his Presidency expires.
“I was just wondering if you would give any thought to being on ‘American Idol’ or ‘America’s Got Talent’?” the reporter asked. “You’d be a big hit, Mr. President.”
Obama said: “My wife and my daughters find me embarrassing enough when I start performing. They certainly don’t want a large national audience seeing me in those kinds of situations. So I’m going to try to keep my singing to the shower most of the time.”
Obama has taken heat for being one the coolest Presidents.
His coolness has even inspired a rap.
But conservative are quick to point out that coolness does not equal competence.
