You mean the 500b a year adventures that Obama oversees? The ones that the Commander-In-Chief can end with a single executive order tomorrow?

Those adventures?

Well Obama certainly won't face a tough press corps that would be allowed to field questions.

Going on Leno's late night comedy show he can claim that it is a part of his most transparent presidency ever.

You do realize that you have no leg to stand on.

#1 Obama doubled down on Afghanistan and dramatically escalated it above where Bush had it. Obama owns it.

#2 Obama followed Bush's withdrawal timeline, he didn't do a quicker withdrawal as once promised on the 2008 campaign trail.

#3 Obama has deployed special forces to 75 countries.

#4 Obama started a drone war in Yemen.

#5 Obama started military force in Libya despite saying it was illegal for him to do so without a congressional vote.

#6 Obama has overseen over 20,000 and counting air strikes.

#7 Obama escalated the drone war in Somalia.

#8 Obama escalated the drone war in Pakistan.

etc etc etc I could go on.

St. Pete for Peace

Obama Nobel Peace Prize winner proves the award has no real value.

But this fool is going to go on TV and smile on a late night comedy show. What the hell is wrong with him?

What's wrong with appearing on TV? If I am not mistaken they talked about those very issues on that show

If obama did so on his own dime and time, it would be nobody's business, but of course you know we're broke
How much do you suppose his publicity jaunt cost the taxpayer?

While dodging forums where reporters can ask him unscripted questions.

Remember when Democrats had a problem with Bush doing that? Now that Obama is far worse than Bush in this regard...magically it is no longer an issue.

No, I do not know how much he paid Leno, but since you do, why don't you share it with the rest of us.

You find stuttering and stammering to be credible?

That's telling.
