The news that President Barack Obama gave the order to kill Osama bin Laden on Friday April 29 really highlights the extent to which a president needs to have an almost superhuman ability to multitask and develop an ironclad poker face. There he was last week, dealing with Trump's birther nonsense and even, on Saturday night, the final night of bin Laden's life, smiling and hinting at nothing as Seth Meyers joked about the al-Qaida leader's whereabouts during the White House Correspondents' Association dinner - all the while knowing what was about to unfold.

Personally, I'd have been texting and Tweeting uncontrollably: "OMG. Abt 2 kill OBL. So excited. LOL"

Reason # 4,768 why I'm not president.
