I recall a RWNJ back in Kennedy's day, his name was Barry Goldwater. He made a bit of a splash until people actually started listening to what he was saying.

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
I remember when the news was about Obama being the first sitting president to appear on a late night comedy show, now the story is ho-hum, it's his sixth appearance, on just this one show. Obama thinks he's a pop culture icon.

Maybe Obama will tell more jokes about handicapped children, cuz the last joke was a real hoot.

They can't name President Kennedy, because his appearance was only as a candidate.

I imagine that, as our history marches on, future sitting Presidents will appear on televised talk shows.

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.

If people still can't find jobs by now, then it's quite obvious they're not looking enough. In North Dakota jobs are going begging. If you think it's beneath your dignity to move to such a place, then I think it's beneath your dignity to still be without a job.

You promised to ignore me. I was so looking forward to it. But I see you can't resist the urge to embarrass yourself, so at least I'll ignore you from now on.
