You mean the, "this just proves" or "further proves, or maybe "just further proves that" Obama is a cartoon.

That way Obama will appear to be a cartoon and you won't appear to be a dope.

Yes, presidents should hide from the American public except during well crafted public appearances.

This is more too damned much ado about absolutely nothing.

Wow. No matter what Obama does there are people who will find something wrong with it.

They mocked him for using the internet to connect with people at first. Then he trounced the competition and now all the Repubs are twittering.

It's good to have a leader who engages with the people and meets them on their turf to keep them informed and engaged so as to maintain knowledge and support of his policies so they are not spun by the opposition.

The biggest reason Bush failed as president was that he withdrew from public, hand picked who would be allowed in press conferences, and basically staged a facade of government. He never gained the public's support for his policies because he never fully explained them.

Great to have a real leader. It'll take some getting used to.

No, he should be in his office working on doing his job. Actually you know what never mind let him go on whatever talk show he wants and have his weekly parties and go to ballgames. That is less time he is in his office screwing up this country

Well, excuse me, but we need to see our president (leader of our country) in times like these. What do you want him to do, hide out in a bunker??

Better get used to it. Between the meetings, press conferences, youtube weekly video addresses, etc, you're going to see a lot of him.

Its called living in a new technological age, folks & he's embracing it. Try to keep up.
