Obama asked: Ever regret running for president?


www.cnn.com

CNN) -- Following this week's tough talks on the global financial crisis, President Obama on Friday shifted his tone to reflect upon his regrets, his frustrations and his hopes for the younger generation.

Obama's remarks came after a woman from Heidelberg, Germany, asked if he ever regretted having run for president. The question yielded a lengthy response from Obama, who is participating in his first overseas trip in office.

"That's a good question," Obama said at a packed town hall meeting in Strasbourg, France. "Michelle definitely asked that question.

"You know, there have been times, certainly during the campaign, and there have been times over the last several months where you feel a lot of weight on your shoulders. There's no doubt about it," the president said.

With his wife, Michelle, looking on, Obama continued, "During the campaign, the biggest sacrifice -- the thing that was most difficult was that I was away from my family all the time." Video Watch Obama weigh in on his regrets and sacrifices »

The president joked that he was jealous of not only Europe's high-speed rail but also the fact that campaigns there only last a few months.

Obama announced that he was running for president on February 10, 2007, and was inaugurated nearly two years later.

I think it was the single greatest decision he made in his life, despite coming into one of the worst economic situations in U.S history. His doing a great job and I hope he keeps it up!

A+ for his G20 visit.

Would you mind elaborating for us a little bit on what he has done that is so "great"? I'm genuinely curious as to what you have to say.

Obama might not regret running for President, but most Americans DO regret that he was elected

Hello and greetings, MissysWorld.
I hope all is well with you.

Although I am not an Obama fan, I would caution that you refrain from using absolutes, as in "all," "most," etc, especally without something to back up what you are asserting. As such, last time I checked, despite his lowering approval ratings--dependent upon whose poll numbers you look at--Obama was elected and still remains supported by "most" of those who elected him into office. Not necessarily refuting you here, but just urging some objective restraint in making or laying down broad-based sweeping comments containing unproven absolutes.

oh if only something could be done about it.

I don't think he regrets becomeing potus, but I think that he doesn't particularly care for the grueling process.

or anything else for that matter. All I see is emotion filled baseless mud slinging comments.

No one is asking you to like anybody. But if your gonna post hate filled remarks you should post a pretty good reason why.
