“The interview with President Obama, pegged to his latest speech on jobs and the economy in Chattanooga, focuses on the President’s personal connection to the economic pressures that now face millions of Americans,” said David Blum, editor of Kindle Singles.
In this Kindle Singles Interview, President Barack Obama decries the “change in culture” that has altered our view of the American Dream. “There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous,” the President said. “Kids weren’t monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success.” He addresses the jobs issue from a personal perspective, reflecting on how his own life might have been different had he not experienced success in politics. “I could picture myself being a good teacher,” the President mused.
