Originally Published on Aug 13, 2013:  Artists & Athletes hosted a private briefing on decision making in the Oval Office with Reggie Love, former special assistant to the President of the United States.  Mr. Love is interviewed by Jim Newton, Senior Fellow of the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs and Editor at Large at the Los Angeles Times. Los Angeles, California | July 2013

Among other tidbits, starting at 6:20 Love reveals he and President Obama played cards during the Osama bin Laden raid.

“Most people were like down in the Situation Room and [President Obama] was like, ‘I’m not going to be down there, I can’t watch this entire thing,’ We must have played 15 games of spades," said Love at a public event.

Yes, that was one gutsy call… East bids 4!

Also enjoyable is the way Love talks about how President Obama ‘finally found his birth certificate’.

A YouTube video featuring an interview with former Obama bodyman Reggie Love was removed after his comments surfaced in news reports highlighting some private details from President Obama’s life in the White House.

The video, posted by the Artists and Athletes Alliance YouTube account, featured a July 18 interview with Love and Jim Newton, the editor-at-large of the Los Angeles Times, during a lunch hosted by the Alliance with UCLA’s Luskin School of Public Affairs.

A promotional still in the video describes the session as “a private briefing on decision making in the Oval Office with Reggie Love”

The video only shows highlights from the interview, as Love talked about daily life with the president, including the historic day when Osama bin Laden was killed.

While advisers huddled in the situation room, Love revealed that he and Obama played cards during part of the day.

“[President Obama] was like, ‘I’m not, I’m not going to be down there, I can’t watch this entire thing’,” Love said. “We must have played 15 hands-15 games of Spades.”

Love also joked about the day that Obama “finally found his birth certificate.”

“I remember when he finally found his birth certificate,” he said with a grin.

“It took a little too long, by the way,” Newton added, prompting laughter from the crowd.

“You know, your parents don’t live together you travel all over the world, documents get lost there,” Love continued.

Love revealed that Obama just wanted to walk into the press briefing room in the White House and put the birth certificate on the podium, but his staff disagreed.

“Everyone was like ‘That’s a really bad idea’,” Love said. “But he was very gung-ho about doing it, because he was so irritated about it.”

Love also revealed details of Obama’s phone call with President George W. Bush about passing the Wall Street bailout and conversations with the president on the campaign trail.

“We came up with a sort of like – no MSNBC, no CNN – only sports,” Love explained. “If we’re not at a campaign event, no politics.”

The video was deleted from the Artists and Athletes Alliance YouTube account shortly after a report about Love’s comments was linked on the Drudge Report.

Although the Artists and Athletes Alliance has deleted the video, several copies still exist on YouTube – including this one.

After this video was linked to Drudge and went viral with endless negative comments, MSNBC, CNN and other Obama controlled networks jumped to the president’s defense saying after all the President has so much pressure and need a break… 

Really?  Seems it is this president who needs all the breaks.  I didn’t ever hear or see John F. Kennedy playing cards during the Bay of Pigs or any other former presidents during times of crisis from what I’ve ever heard?!?

Seems the questions that many asked about the photo released of the situation room during the Bin Laden raid and killing was edited or staged a lot more that we even suspected. Even hideous Hillary at least looked concerned!

Unbelievable.  The ugly just gets uglier…

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
