Obama Admits Laziness Is His Worst Fault
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama admitted in an interview with ABC’s Barbara Walters, screened on Friday night, that his worst character fault is “laziness” and he is really a big “softie” and not at all “Spock-like.”
Asked by Walters to name “the trait you most deplore in yourself,” the president — who was interviewed alongside his wife Michelle — responded, “laziness.”
“You’re lazy?” Walters asked.
“You know it’s interesting, there is a deep down, underneath all the work I do, I think there’s a laziness in me.
Asked to name the trait he most dislikes in others, Obama said, “The thing actually that I most dislike is cruelty. I can’t stand cruel people.”
Michelle added that the thing that bothered her most was when “people aren’t willing to compromise.”
“I just think that particularly in a society with big views, big differences, that, you know, the truth is often somewhere right in the middle. And, a lot of times, we don’t want to give up anything. And I don’t like it when I see that in myself,” the first lady added.
