    What the hell? Is Obama an "A-list celeb" or our Commander in Chief? How does the president have time to take off of our economic crisis to go on a comedy show? For a man who believes government should control everything, youd think he would being trying to "fix" everything. Whats next Saturday night live?

    You people are too serious. You should lighten up some. What do you think Obama is going to do, put his hand on some kind of economic button that's only in the White House that slowly but surely changes our economy back to the positive?

    He's going out in front of 5 million people to talk to them. Just like he'll be doing next Tuesday night in the nationally televised press conference.

    I can't believe the same people that said he's doing too much are now saying he's not doing enough.

    No, he is trying to be 'one of us' (you know, the little people, the everyday guy). The country is in crisis and he's traipsing off campaigning for for the already through stim plan and yucking it up with Leno. His ass should be in Washington. If he wanted to be 'one of us', he shouldn't have run for POTUS.

    Obama is a joke and he's appearing on a comedy show. Makes sense to me.

    His actions are a reflection on his character.

    State visits from allies he's too tired to prepare for properly, but he's always down for a late night guest shot.

    This was a disgraceful incident, and the man made himself a laughing stock.

    You guys are absolutely nuts. But it doesn't matter - you wouldn't vote for him if he saved the world.

    After all the secret and corrupt activity of the last 8 years in the WH, I think it is a breath of fresh air to have someone so open and willing to face the public directly.

    Can you imagine Bush on Jay Leno? He should go on now, he'd be a riot.

    You must have been really upset at all the time W spent vacationing on his ranch... and all on the taxpayers dime.. were you railing against that as well???

    W broke the record that ReRonnie set for time on vacation during his presidency?? so surely you posted your outrage about that too..

    Fail. Obama isn't on vacation -- he's on Leno while this huge AIG mess is unfolding as we speak. His ass should be in Washington. I have no problem with him going on vacation -- when he's earned it.
