Obama: I Love Campaigning, Governing Is a Different Thing

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” President Barack Obama explained to host Bob Schieffer while he loves campaigning, how he feels about his responsibilities to govern is a “different thing.” 

Obama said, “Here is one thing that I will say — that campaigning and governance are two different things. I landed two successful campaigns, anybody who has seen me on the campaign trail can tell how much I love just being with the American people and hearing what they care about, how passionate I am about trying to help them. When you start governing, there is a tendency sometimes for me to start thinking, as long as I get the policy right that’s what should matter.”
