Today, The New York Times revealed something very personal about President Obama. The One, you see, gets “restless.” Poor guy … Endless campaigning just isn’t, you know, intellectually stimulating enough for him:

Via NYT:

In a summer when the president is traveling across the country meeting with “ordinary Americans” under highly choreographed conditions, the Rome dinner shows another side of Mr. Obama. As one of an increasing number of late-night dinners in his second term, it offers a glimpse into a president who prefers intellectuals to politicians, and into the rarefied company Mr. Obama may keep after he leaves the White House.

Sometimes stretching into the small hours of the morning, the dinners reflect a restless president weary of the obligations of the White House and less concerned about the appearance of partying with the rich and celebrated. Freewheeling, with conversation touching on art, architecture and literature, the gatherings are a world away from the stilted meals Mr. Obama had last year with Senate Republican leaders at the Jefferson Hotel in Washington.

This president has been suffering from horrible ennui, and we had no idea! But as it turns out, the warning signs were all there:

Hang in there, Barry!
