I finally found something President Obama sucks at!

Love the man, but he really sucked at reading Where the Wild Things Are to a group of children!

He should have sat on the ground with the kids and read with much more intonation, inflection and personality. 

“His mother called him ‘WILD THING’… and Max said, ‘I’LL EAT YOU UP!’  So he was sent to bed without eating anything.”

Is it because I read this book to kids a million times, both as a pre-school teacher and as a parent, that I apparently have really high expectations? 

Because really, I don’t even think this guy did such a great job:

This dad, however, has the right idea, dontcha think?

Thanks. Those videos were great to watch. That dad and young son are wonderful. But in Obama's defense, I think he was trying to be heard by a large gathering. He might do a much better job with just a kid or too.

sometimes it's a relieve to find out other's aren't perfect either ;)

Wow...he's pretty awful! Did I hear Michelle trying to encourge him with a growl in the background?

I guess everyone has to have at least one flaw, so we can forgive him... :)

Being an Obama girl, I too am disappointed in the delivery. But I give him an A+ for the concept and choice of book. I guess some is better than none.

On another note, did you know the book is being made into a movie? The trailers are outstanding.
