With midterms just around the corner and Democrats set to take a beating; His popularity plummeting and members of his own party distancing themselves from his policies, Obama is seeking to reinvent himself as the man his party saw on the campaign trail. Where that may not be an easy task, the President has an ace up his sleeve.
The Ace? Mr. Obama is set to appear on CBS's reality show Undercover Boss. Where he will go around Capitol Hill performing the jobs of Senators, Representatives, Staffers and fill several other positions. Most anticipated, though, is the rumor that he may perform the role of a Senatorial Page. Which includes running newly written bills from the Lobbyists who wrote them to the Senators who will propose them, along with fending off sexual advances from those same Senators.
At a press conference yesterday, the President said he was "very excited" to be able to do this. Hoping that his party will see he is "just like them" and that they don't have to be afraid to have him come out and campaign for them.
Of course the President could not go into great detail about what we can expect from the show seeing as he's "undercover" and nobody but the viewers are supposed to know that it's him. The White House Press Secretary did inform us that the President will not have his teleprompters with him...so we don't expect him to say much.
While away from the oval office Hawaii Senator and President Pro Tempore Daniel Inouye will reside as acting President seeing as the other two options are Joe Biden or Nancy Pelosi. When asked how he felt about Senator Inouye serving as President while Obama is on Undercover Boss, Joe Biden responded "Oh, I love that show!" We could not reach Ms. Pelosi.
