Jul 5, 2009 1:30pm

MOSCOW — In his first interview with Russian media, President Obama was asked, "what don't you like about yourself?"

The president responded, "I have been playing golf lately, and I don't like my golf swing."

Laughing, the president continued, "you probably don't have that much golf weather in Russia, but it's a game that I keep on thinking I should be good at, and somehow the ball goes this way and that way and never goes straight."

Later in the interview, with ITAR-TASS/ROSSIYA TV, asked what the role of the First Lady is, the president said Michelle Obama's "first role is to make sure that our children are doing well" and her "second job is to make sure that I don't get too cocky."

His wife "reminds me of all the things that I can improve on," the president said.
