In the midst of his "debate prep" (let's just call it that, instead of a "mini-vacation", shall we?), Obama left the confines of the posh Lake Las Vegas compound where he was holed up to "study". He went to his campaign office in Las Vegas, bearing pizza. There, he said, "...they are making me study..." and "...it's a drag...".
Does this sound like a "self-starting go-getter" to you? --Me, neither. Conversely, it sounds like the thing a lazy slacker would say.
Just a month to go now, until we can deliver this slacker's pink slip.
