[Homework]2009-09-23&09-26 奥巴马上《大卫牙擦苏》脱口秀

On phantom932

I was looking at your itinerary for the day. And the activities, and the stops and the visits, and considering your day yesterday, it just makes me dizzy. When you wake up on a day like this, is it something you relish, or is it something you say, Oh, for heaven's sake, I gotta go see Letterman?

That was unexpected, seeing that appear on the schedule. I was... That's one of those where, you know, you ask your advisers, Who's responsible for this?

Yes, exactly. Right.

And everybody kind of looks down and they pull out their BlackBerries.

But I will say that...

Nobody is accountable.

So we decided there wasn't gonna be any fancy camps during the summer or anything. They basically just goofed off all summer, which I couldn't do. So...

Others have.

I started noticing when they would have these town hall meetings and there was vitriol, and general animosity, and anger, and shouting and pushing, and just unsavory behaviour reported. I don't know if it was generally speaking, but it would be reported here and there.

Is he onto something there or is that something to talk about?

Well, first of all I think it's important to realize that I was actually black before the election. So...

This is true. This is true.

How long have you been a black man?

So the American people, I think, gave me this extraordinary honor. And that tells you, I think, a lot about where the country is at. I actually think that what's happened is that whenever a president tries to bring about significant changes, particularly during times of economic unease, then there is a certain segment of the population that gets very riled up. And it happened, FDR(Franklin D. Roosevelt) was called a socialist and a communist. JFK(John F. Kennedy), there are all kinds of names hurled at him. Ronald Reagan, when he came into office, he was moving in a different direction and people were sure that he was bringing the country down. And so this is not untypical. One of the things you sign up for in politics is folks yell at you. But I think that what has been missing from the conversation is that the overwhelming majority of people, Republican or Democrat, I think they just want to see some common sense, they want to see some honesty, and integrity in Washington. I think they are turned off by the shouting and the yelling. And they expect more from their public elected officials. So that's something that I want to...
