I will give an example - Peter the Great of old Russia knew that his nation was not prospering - He knew they needed to begin more intense trade and commerce with other nations...They had no shipping industry to speak of - because they had no ships. He secretly traveled to other nations and observed ship building....

THEN he returned home and launched a plan to bring Russia into the modern era and start building ships.

It was said that this king...would put on the clothes of a laborer - and quietly go to work in the ship yards so he could get a hands on experience and understand the industry - thus improving and advancing it.

Most Russians did not have a clue what their leader looked like so Peter The Great would mix in and get his hands dirty- Obama had better learn how do get down and dirty...but he can't because he is superficial and all about ego and status...no different than some chump who is all about the bling bling.

So the show aired last night hugh. The only reason he sounds like a mumbling idiot is because he is phony and should try to be himself...I would say that Obama has no real confidence...He can't relax and be himself because even he knows that he is a simple common guy who is in over his head.

I don't recall JFK's WH press conferences being referred to as "Comedy Hour".
Don't think there were many RWNJs then. There were some, but not with Network and Internet mouthpieces.

There is no doubt a small handful of posters on here doubly hate Obama because he is black. I'm not naming names on who I suspect they are, but they do exist, even if I can count them with one hand

Watching The rerun of Two and a Half men was much better than watching the Comedian in Charge.

It's NBC, the Obama Channel.

Maybe they hate the fact he was voted in by many simply BECAUSE he was black. Yes, there are extreme bigots in this country...from all walks of life. But do you have an issue with people being bigoted against low information voters?

It was an actor named Ronald Reagan who later went on to become President. Watching the libs reach on this one is pretty darn funny.

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


Obama to Appear On Jay Leno Aug. 6 | Variety

Nonsense complaint. Presidents should only be seen on television in Utopia?
