Obama: I’m No Mr Spock

POTUS tells ABC News’ Barbara Walters – in “20/20” sit-down with First Couple broadcast 10 pm ET Fri. – misconception he is “detached, or Spock-like, or very analytical.”

Bam: “People who know me know that I am a softie. I mean, stuff can choke me up very easily. The challenge for me is that in this job I think a lot of times the press or how you come off on TV people want you to be very demonstrative in your emotions. And if you’re not sort of showing it in a very theatrical way, then somehow it doesn’t translate over the screen.”
