Obama Compares Himself to Mark Wahlberg Character in 'The Departed'

'You know it is lonely, me just doing stuff'

Obama: It’s Lonely Doing All The Work (The Washington Free Beacon)

Obama complained Thursday that he’s “lonely” doing all the work in Washington by himself, without Congress.

“You know it is lonely, me just doing stuff. I’d love it if the Republicans did stuff too,” he said during his speech in Austin, Texas.

“Sometimes I feel like saying to these guys: ‘I’m the guy doing my job. You must be the other guy’,” Obama remarked, quoting Mark Wahlberg’s character in “a great movie called ‘The Departed.’ A little violent for kids.”
