I guess the next appearence for the President will be on "Survivor" or "American Idle" since the bar seems to be getting set lower and lower by this man.
Richard Milhouse Nixon was not explaining his Administration's policies,he just said "Sock it to me?".
Barack Hussein Obama wanted to explain his policies and chose an entertainment talk show to do so.
Not very Presidential.

"The View" is an entertainment talk show,not a politically based show where a politician can explain their policies and views while being interviewed.
He just went on this show to try and gain points in a poll.
Would you respect the leader of your country for going on a entertainment show?
I don't.

Google seems to think that it's quite common for the past few presidents to have appeared in talk shows and news talk programs throughout their tenure...

Is it true he called blacks mongrels? LOL. He is, I am not sure about all blacks. Mutt. Yep, that describes him perfectly. Like another idiot poster in Topix, he is half white and half black but seems to forget the white half. LOL.

I don't see how it's much different than appearing on the news-chat shows that the past handful of American presidents have. What kind of media would you prefer to have the president present policy and himself personally through. It seems that this president is doing a great deal of web work soo there's quite a bit out on a number of platforms

I wonder if he mentioned to those females his heartbreak at not being invited to Chelseas wedding?

American "Idle"?? LOL -- so true!! He's idle, all right!!
I think Obama ought to start his own show -- "Who Wants To Be An Idiot?" -- and all the people who voted for him can be contestants!!

Actually, since I know quite a few people who have expressed remorse at having voted for him, I'll change that to "all the people who still think he's a great President can be contestants".
