    What....the **** are you going on about? I'm not even kidding. What 'address the nation'. He cracked a few jokes about how his life as president has changed and what he's dealing with right now. This is no more an 'address the nation' the Bush calling Rush on his birthday. Lighten the **** up.

    The nation is going goofy over the AIG fiasco and the employees who are now receiving death threats because congress threw them under the bus. Our president goes on Leno and pretends to be stunned "stunned" over some crap he himself knew god damn well about.

    It was an "address the nation" of sorts. A "thank god the nation is retarded" propaganda bit where he controls the questions and jokes his way through his part in the fiasco. It's embarrassing, juvenile, and an insult to my intelligence. What's next? A foreign policy discussion on MTV where Obama fields questions from the hard hitting Russel Brand? Freaking disgrace.

    Are you being irrational on purpose?

    You think Leno is an appropriate forum for the sitting President? You think it's ok for him to make jokes about bowling in an interview he can control while the federal reserve decides to throw caution to the wind and gamble buying up $300 billion of US debt?

    Personally I think the dude should be too busy for Leno. I think feigning "I'm stunned" over the AIG mess is a tad beneath his position and something he shouldn't have time for at the moment.

    Obama's facing tough criticism from all ends for the first time and Leno is his chosen format? That's ok with you? I find it to be intellectually dishonest and a gamble that the average American has **** for brains. I'm hoping like hell that gamble bites him in the ass rather than paying off or we really are that stupid.

    Obama is doing exactly what he said he would do: staying in touch with the people.

    I want to note that I am proud that Obama right after saying the gaffe apologized and realized it was not ok.

    What I am not proud with is the fact that people continue to act as if comparing your horrendous scores in bowling to handicapped athletic games is ok.

    The arguement that he is a person to and he makes mistakes is not a valid excuse, it never is for a leader in his position. He has the top spot, and by god I hope we didn't elect a joe the plumber to fix this god damn mess we got into.

    Obama isn't Joe the plumber or Bob the plumber, he is Obama the president and lets hope things such as these seize to happen in the future.

    Also going on Jay Leno really isn't helping his cause, Leno is a late night comedy show, the only reason his show exists is to promote other popular forms of media. Obama isn't a popular form of media that needs to be promoted, so going on the show should not be in Leno's priority or the presidents.

    Please. Leno is excited to make history having on a sitting President. Beyond that what does Leno care? His reputation isn't in politics. Obama went for the easy appearance and that was apparent to anyone with a half a brain in their head. Jon Stewart on the Comedy channel would have been a harder hitting interview. The Leno interview was insulting. A slap in the face to folks who actually care about the answer to, "Just what in the hell are they thinking?" Obama appealed to tards and in tard like fashion the only thing they picked up on was the tard joke.

    Appearing on Leno is keeping it real? 'bout real as the whole "I'm stunned, positively stunned," bit. " Appearing on Leno during a financial crisis is about a half step above appearing on the Tyra Banks show. It's an embarrassment. I don't currently give a crap about the dudes bowling scores, his basketball, etc. I want to know why he's feigning indignation on AIG and why he thinks it's wise to allow the fed to take such a historical gamble in our current situation. I want to know why he's comfortable and not afraid of inflation given the high risk of the feds action. I could give a crap about his bowling score and some retard jokes. The whole retard thing was a pun. Get it?
