Obama Defends Staff, Advisers: ‘My Folks Are Doing Really Well’

‘That gives you a lot of satisfaction, that keeps you getting up even if you haven’t gotten as much sleep as you want’

Obama Defends Staff, Advisers: "My Folks Are Doing Really Well" (RealClearPolitics)

CHUCK TODD: Do you think you need to rotate some fresh ideas, some new people in here?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, no, actually my folks are doing really well. But having said all that, despite all those challenges, it is invigorating to see how much U.S. leadership is still appreciated and still expected. You know, when I came back from Wales and I was reminded once again that not only is America the only indispensable nation.

But we perhaps have never been more indispensable. And our leadership is making a difference. And that gives you a lot of satisfaction. That keeps you getting up even if you haven't gotten as much sleep as you want.
