Washington: President Barack Obama has said that Washington ‘feels as broken as it did four years ago,’ when he took office.
According to The Telegraph, he said that he is most frustrated by the inability ‘to change the atmosphere’ in the US capital ‘to reflect the decency and common sense of ordinary people’ who want their leaders to solve problems. “There’s enough blame to go around for that,” Obama said.
Reflecting on more than three and a half years in office, Obama said, “I think there's no doubt that I underestimated the degree to which in this town politics trump problem solving.” Asked if he's prepared for that, the president said, "Well, I get a little depressed." The first lady said the Obama’s will find a way for ‘family time, because any time the girls are out of school, that's important time for us to spend as a family’.
We're still parents where you have to juggle your time around when they're free and summer time is that time," Michelle Obama said.
