This morning Politico had a story up all about Barack Obama and his pet peeves, as described by White House staffers.
- Obama also confessed recently that one of his biggest pet peeves is what he calls ‘the shine police’ — aides and makeup artists who powder his face before he does television.
- Obama bristles when “people talk too much at meetings and prevent others from speaking.”
- Obama also doesn’t like people to regurgitate what he’s already read in a detailed briefing book.
I don’t know about you, but that reads like someone answering, “I work too hard” when asked what their biggest weakness is at an interview.
Now I couldn’t possibly imagine these are all of the Facepalm President’s pet peeves. With the help of some friends, I’ve compiled a list of a few others that White House staff may have glossed over.
