Merle Haggard found Obama to be "very different" from the way he's portrayed in the media: "Not conceited."

Haggard said during  an interview with Rolling Stone

He's very humble about being the president of the United States, especially in comparison to some presidents we've had who come across like they don't need anybody's help.

I think he knows he's in over his head. Anybody with any sense who takes that job and thinks they can handle it must be an idiot.

Haggard met Obama when he came to Washington to be recognized as a Kennedy Center honoree earlier this month. the show was broadcast on 12/28/2010.  

Haggard added it's "really almost criminal" how Obama is portrayed in the media.

There seems to be no shame or anything," he said. "They call him all kinds of names all day long, saying he's doing certain things that he's not.

The country singer said he found Obama "very humble."
