At first glance, it seems like being President of the United States is a pretty sweet gig, but there are definitely plenty of disadvantages that come with the role. Plus there are plenty of downsides to being pretty much any human being in the most general sense. There are actually a lot of reasons why it sucks to be Barack Obama. Aside from the president being an extremely demanding job, it is also a very public one so the man is criticized multiple times on daily basis. I imagine that being president is a role that is much more scrutinized ever since the introduction of the internet and social media. Everyone considers themselves to be a political expert with their anonymous Twitter handles and such. Barack Obama receives so many critiques on a daily basis.
And on top of that he's on the way out which means that every person running for president is not only trying to prove that they are the best candidate in their party, but also that they have the potential to be better than Obama. Pretty much everything that Obama does, whether it is work related or not is a public story. Everything from the dude's policies to his jeans to his hairstyles becomes a news story, a top trending topic, and the inspiration for countless memes and parodies.
Although it has to be pretty great to be the ruler of the free world, but there are some definite downsides. Here are ten reasons why being Barack Obama actually sucks.
10 He Is Aging Quickly
9 He Has Senioritis
8 He Is The Father Of Two Teenage Girls
7 Super Hot Wife Is Better Looking Than He Is
6 He Can't Dance
5 He Is The Subject Of Countless Memes
4 He Wears Dad Jeans
3 His Middle Name
2 He Is Not A Good Basketball Player
1 He Is Always Being Questioned About His Religion
This is the one serious item on this list and it is something I definitely feel bad about. Everyone is constantly questioning and criticizing Barack Obama's religion. I get that the man's life is up for public consumption, but the questions about religion have been pretty much evaded. I am not a religious person, but I feel like a person would be proud to share their religious affiliation with the world. Nevertheless, it's his prerogative to keep things private if he wants, but it's just got to be annoying to be constantly asked about his religion over and over again.
