If President Obama were a football player, who would he be? While he could be compared to a number of players, the POTUS recently said he sees himself as Packers QB, Aaron Rodgers.
In a recent interview with GQ, Obama said he feels like Rodgers in the pocket with defenders trying to knock him down.
“In the sense of you can’t be distracted by what’s around you, you’ve got to be looking downfield,” Obama said. “And I think that’s a quality that I have — not getting flustered in what’s around me. So there was never a point, even early on — even in the first six months, where we weren’t sure whether we were going to dip into another Great Depression, we weren’t sure whether the steps we were taking on rescuing the auto industry or stabilizing the financial system were going to work — there weren’t moments where I thought, ‘Sheesh, feels like we’re in over our head.’ ”
The interview was conducted on Oct. 5 –before the Packers and Rodgers lost three straight games.
What do you think? Would you compare President Obama to Rodgers, or would it be another player?
