Three days into President Barack Obama’s second term, and it’s clear he’s not the man he was in his first term. Just ask the fly.
A pesky Musca domestica (per pooler Brian Beutler of Talking Points Memo) landed on the president’s face during a press conference to announce his picks to head the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
Obama swatted at the fly a couple of times, and the official White House transcript records, “This guy is bothering me here—(swatting at a fly.)” The insect eventually left the commander in chief alone.
But the Obama of just a few years ago—of June 2009, to be precise—might not be impressed. That’s because that Obama successfully killed a fly during an interview with CNBC, boasting “I got the sucker.”
