What I think is that the OP never liked Obama and is one of those that whines about anything and everything he does.
It's such a shock to see you defending King Obama. I mean that only happens 100 percent of the time, no matter what King Obama does or doesn't do.

TV is a very effective way to communicating with the American people.


June 16, 1960: Senator John F. Kennedy appears on Jack Parr’s Tonight Show:

1968: Richard Nixon delivers a signature line on Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In:

March 13, 1975: Ronald Reagan appears on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson (although he was not a candidate at the time, he announced his candidacy for the 1976 race months later)

1992: Bill Clinton plays sax on The Arsenio Hall Show:

2000: George W. Bush delivers a Top Ten list on Late Night with David Letterman:

2008: Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin raps on Saturday Night Live (presidential nominees Barack Obama and John McCain also appeared on different episodes)

March 2012: Mitt Romney appears on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

Ah, but see, Obama is a black Democrat so he's not allowed to appear on TV. Too bad this forum wasn't around when Clinton was president. Would have loved to see if he would have gotten the same vitriol Obama does now. I don't imagine so

Then you haven't been paying attention. I don't defend spying on Americans, the drone policy and believe e should close Gitmo regardless of what Congress says.

Mitt, Ann and the boys were no strangers to late night TV during the campaign.

Mitt returned to the Tonight Show, after the election.

A politician would be foolish to not take advantage of the media.

Hands down the best/worst was Sarah Palin on SNL.

Apparently you're an evil socialist if you don't criticize Obama at every opportunity. I have many criticisms of Obama, but he's not as bad as he is portrayed to be

It's completely illogical to use the "you shouldn't do X while Y..." argument. By that you shouldn't be wasting time posting on a forum when fillintheblank. The world would actually need to stop to focus all it's attention on Y, which is stupid.

Bush never appeared on the Tonight Show while in office. This is Obama 6th appearance since he has been president
