    HOUSTON CHRONICAL
    WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama wants you to know that he is not a golf addict.

    He spends so much time unwinding on the links because security restrictions mean he can't go out for long walks or go to the carwash or the grocery store.

    The president's comments came during a session with editors and publishers from Hearst Magazines in which he described life behind the scenes in the White House.

    The president said he loves his life in the White House but doesn't enjoy some of the ways of Washington, such as the "kabuki dance" among political partisans before serious policy discussions begin. He also regrets his loss of personal privacy.

    "I just miss - I miss being anonymous," he said at the meeting in the White House. "I miss Saturday morning, rolling out of bed, not shaving, getting into my car with my girls, driving to the supermarket, squeezing the fruit, getting my car washed, taking walks. I can't take a walk."

    He says he enjoys golf but is not the fanatic that some have portrayed.

    "It's the only excuse I have to get outside for four hours at a stretch," he said.

    His impossible dream: "I just want to go through Central Park (in New York) and watch folks passing by ... spend the day watching people. I miss that."

    This makes good sense to me.

    I think most of us would feel the same in his situation.
