He wants you to jump on his words. Sometimes, small annoyance's go away if you ignore them. If you pay attention to them they'll stay around.
Do you watch those nature documentaries? Have you seen the one about lions? You've got this lion, the king of the jungle, huge mane. He's lying under a tree in the middle of Africa. He's so big; it's so hot. He doesn't want to move.

Now the little lions come and they start messing with him: biting his tail, biting his ears. He doesn't do anything. The lioness starts messing with him: coming over, making trouble. Still nothing.

Now the other animals, they notice this; they start to move in. The jackals, hyenas, they're barking at him, laughing at him. They nip his toes, and eat the food that's in his domain. Then they get closer and closer, bolder and bolder.

Until one day, that lion gets up and tears the s*** out of everybody. Runs like the wind, eats everything in his path. Every once in a while, the lion has to show the jackals who he is.

[Twenty points to whoever knows -- without googling -- where that story is from.]

I don't know. Maybe you should leave it alone, let people start nipping at you so I can watch you tear them to pieces. That'd be fun.

Kroft: So, you've given up the apartment in Washington that you stayed in?

Mr. Obama: I used to get teased, not just by Michelle, but by my own staff. They'd say, 'You know, you're the only senator that has a worse apartment than your 25-year-old staff people.' Eventually, I think, Secret Service kind of looked at me like, you know, once the building caught fire, and the ceiling caved in, I said...

Michelle Obama: But he moved back in anyway.

Mr. Obama: For a while.

Michelle Obama: After the fire.

Mr. Obama: Shortly.

Kroft: Did you ever stay there?

Michelle Obama: I visited, but I didn't sleep there.

Mr. Obama: She insisted on a hotel room.

Michelle Obama: I saw it. I saw it long enough to know that I wasn't gonna stay there.

Mr. Obama: Yeah

Kroft: It is one bedroom? Studio?

Mr. Obama: Yeah, it was sort of a one bedroom. It had kind of the vintage, college dorm, pizza...

Kroft: Community organizer, right?, feel to it.

Michelle Obama: It reminded me of a little better version of the apartment you were in when we first started dating. That was a dump too.

Mr. Obama: Right near Harold's Chicken Shack.

Michelle Obama:Yeah.

Mr. Obama: Yeah. That's when I had the car with the-the hole in it.

Michelle Obama: And you could see the sidewalk, because the rust had gone through.

Mr. Obama: The air-conditioning.

Michelle Obama: So that was my side. I would look and see the ground going past. And I still married him.

Mr. Obama: That's how I knew she loved me. It wasn't for my money.

My dad had a car like that. He made sure the mat was in place and just didn't encourage anyone lifting it.
