Barack does not want to see your briefs or boxers

     “Moscow does not believe in tears”, the saying goes (at least Reagan saw the movie several times), but as for the present buzz, we hear that Mr. Obama has little taste for eyeballing your underwear.
     As the man himself says, see NY Post, KICK IN PANTS FROM O: ‘BROTHERS, STOP SAGGING’,

     Barack Obama has a message for America’s youth: Pull up your pants!
     In an interview with MTV’s Sway Calloway, Obama fielded a question from Eric, a Huntington Beach, Calif., man who referenced a town ordinance that tried to outlaw a street fashion trend in which young men wear their baggy pants down well below their underwear.
     Obama said such laws were “a waste of time,” but didn’t hold back on his own view on the fad.
     “Having said that, brothers should pull up their pants,” he declared. “You are walking by your mother, your grandmother, your underwear is showing. What’s wrong with that? Come on.”
     “Some people might not want to see your underwear - I’m one of them,” he added. …
     “Any public official that is worrying about sagging pants probably needs to spend some time focusing on real problems out there,” he said. …
     After Obama’s underwear comments, Calloway asked about people who get fired for tattoos or dreadlocks.
     Calloway wears long dreadlocks, which Obama said “looked tight.”
     “It’s one thing if an employer discriminates on the basis of gender or sexual orientation or obviously, race or ethnicity,” Obama said, adding it was OK for employers to set standards.
     He noted that his daughter Malia wears twists in her hair.
     “To me, it looks great. Obviously, I would be upset if she were discriminated against on that basis,” Obama said.

     So Obama doesn’t like exhibitionism. Perhaps we have little to fear from him, then, about underwear follies, as we did have to fear with Bill Clinton…

     (And don’t forget what we said about Obama and dreadlocks!!)
