    The "View", "Letterman" and whatever other TV shows Obama appears on seems to be an ingratiation play. He delivers his cute and down home, I'm one off you sorta scenarios and many just eat it up, others, not so much.

    The question.. Is it Presidential to appear on these types of shows?

    After all.. "Tricky Dick" did appear on Laugh-in, worked out well for him...:lol:

    Maybe you miss the "undisclosed secured bunker" mentality of previous administrations.

    That is the real question. If you want the President to be all bussiness all the time, then going on the View is NOT Presidential. But if you want a President who you can relate to, being down-home folksy IS Presidential.

    And we live in a country where both types of people exist. So it's really a useless question to answer.

    I don't care what shows Owe Bama ends up on. I just wish he would tell the truth and not make me puke everytime I hear his voice...
