All the guy does is stutter and stammer. He thinks it's cool. It isn't.


Ah, glad to know someone else notices his "thoughtful stutter". I'm sure that's what he thinks it is, and to his exceptionally low IQ base, it probably comes across that way.

He should change his name to Barack "UHBAMA" LMAO

No, I don't watch very much TV. Why did you watch it? Am I to understand that you hate the man, and yet you purposefully watched it?

I will note that several sitting Presidents were not adverse to appearing on television shows, such as Bob Hope's annual specials (Presidents Ford, Carter and Reagan). As Governor of California, Reagan appeared on the Sonny and Cher show.

Of course, we all remember Mr. Nixon, while running in 1968, appearing on Laugh-In ("Sock it to me?").

The wheel turns ever on and on. Sitting Presidents used to go on the radio, after that useful device was invented, for making speeches, fireside chats, and also to be interviewed.

I imagine that if Mr. Romney had won the presidency, he would not have been adverse to going on Jay Leno's show, or perhaps some others. I predict every future president makes us of this exposure.
Were they SITTING presidents when they made their TV appearances?

Not every household had a television, but they did have a radio. That's how presidents communicated to the citizens. None of them used the radio to put on comedy shows. They talked to the listeners about the state of the country - the good and the bad.

What is it about "I'm paying that idiot's salary" that's too deep to understand?

Did you watch it or not? How did you know he was smiling if you didn't watch?

Interesting picture your first quote provides. You siting in another room while the TV is blaring late night programming. Is this how you normally watch TV? Perhaps you normally watch but last night you couldn't bring yourself to seeing HIM on the show? And obviously stuttering is a sure indicator of lying, or nervousness, or being tired... Of course you were careful to screen out anything he said (because it's obviously all lies to you), but you focused in on his flaws. Psychologists call this selective bias.

Presidents should only smile when there are NO issues going on in a country, eh? Only Presidents of Utopia, Paradise, Shangri-La and Fantasyland should smile.

Some of you sound quite delusional.

So your whole issue with Obama is the salary he draws? While you complain about "paying" for his $400k/year salary, I'll complain about the $500b/year we spend on our little overseas adventures. It's a few orders of magnitude larger.
