That about sums it up
Someone wrote it after the 1st lady brow beat a gold medal winning gymnast on national TV for "admitting" she celebrated one of her gold medals with a cheeseburger, but it also applies perfectly to the president taking credit for "getting" bin Laudin:

The Obamas are the bride at every wedding and the corpse at every funeral.

If they can get into the spotlight at all, they will get in the center of it.

Ya know, I usually agree with you, but I just watched the segment, and I would hardly call that brow-beating. She teased her for about 2 sentences "Surely it was on a whole wheat bun, right? You're setting me back here!" and wasn't actually meant to lecture the poor girl. I know this is a highly politically charged time, but this strikes me as looking for something that isn't there.

I mean, they do love them some limelight, but still, this just looked like good natured kidding around.

You're right, we disagree here. The concept of, "sometimes, it's not about you" is utterly foreign to them.
The girl just won two medals, but admits she had a cheeseburger so that requires *any* comment at all? Not really.

And to think...the Romneys WANT that spotlight.

Who in their right mind WANTS elected office, anyway? As far as I'm concerned, anyone who announces their candidacy has proven their complete unsuitability for office. And, by extension, the best person to occupy any elected office is a person who wants nothing to do with the job.

In an ideal world, wanting it really should be an automatic disqualification.

When I become POTUS I am going to add a Cabinet position "Minister of Serenity" just for you.
