Ahead of his trip to Israel next week, the president told Israeli Channel 2 that he wishes he could enjoy the country as just another tourist. "Sometimes I have this fantasy that I can put on a disguise, wear a fake mustache and I can wander through Tel Aviv and go to a bar and have a conversation, or go down to a university and meet with some students in a setting where it wasn't as formal," Obama said.

Of course, Obama isn't unaware that being President comes with a few perks. And while we can understand Obama's desire to be just another face in the crowd, we're against the fake mustache. Or any fake facial hair, actually. Maybe just a pair of oversized sunglasses and a hat, perhaps?

Watch Obama's discuss his fake mustache fantasy in the video below (around the 21:55 minute mark).
