Barack Obama on Tiger Woods
If you didn't think the Tiger Woods scandal was bigger than regular news before today, you should now. President Barack Obama was asked by People magazine about Tiger, and gave up a pretty mature, honest answer about the top golfer in the world.
"I'm a strong believer that anybody can look within themselves, find their flaws and fix them," he said. "I'm sure he feels terrible about what happened, and I suspect that he will try to put his life back together again."
This obviously isn't the first time Obama has been asked about what is going on in the tabloids. As you may remember, after the whole Taylor Swift - Kanye West fiasco, Barack was quoted as calling Kanye a "jackass," making Barack one of the more lovable men in the nation that day.
I think that most people, deep down in their hearts, want Tiger to come back after this a better man, and like most Hollywood movies (Ed Note: Watched "Smart People" again last night. If Dennis Quaid can change, so can Tiger), people can become better versions of themselves if they really want to.
I'm sure this isn't the first time Barack has talked about Mr. Woods, and probably won't be the last. I just know that in the near future, Tiger won't be getting an invite to speak at any Inaugurations anytime soon.
