  1. So glad the President is doing important “stuff” (his term for his work). I would never have called a President’s activities “stuff” but, sadly, the activities engaged in by this President fall in that category, not in the real work category. And from the promos, 1600 Penn seems to involve a dysfunctional, scandal ridden family. One longs for the days of the West Wing.

      • We did have a chance to vote him off, but the producers decided he was too valuable to the show.

        Anyway, “Survivor” is not the best analog. You may not remember this one, but there was a game show a few years back called “The Weakest Link”. Contestants had to answer questions, and voted on each other’s dismissal as the eponymous “link”. The show tanked because it invariably came out that there were a lot of stupid contestants, but only one or two smart ones; so the pattern was that the dumb ones (Takers) would keep the smart ones (Makers) around only long enough to advance in the game – and then gang up to boot them after they elevated the team to the final rounds, thus clearing the way for one of two idiots to win it all. The snarky hostess would then dismiss them with an abrupt “You are the weakest link. Goodbye!”.

        Perhaps it’s just me, but the combination of idiots riding someone with skills to the top and then stepping on the face of the actual productive person to take an earned prize away from him, while a jubilant media celebrity gratuitously insults him just to add insult to injury, then dismisses him with nothing, sounds a little like governance, Obama-style, to me…

  2. Hopefully neither of his daughters bowls a strike before they are married (must see one of the TV promos for the sitcom to make sense of this statement).

    Although the sitcom prez reference to the robots flying in the sky threat to the boyfriend parallels BHOs unfunny joke where he told ABC News’ Barbara Walters that he ran for re-election because he wanted “men with guns” around as his daughters, Malia (14) and Sasha (11), begin dating boys.

    • He may not have much to worry about in the “boy department” where the eldest is concerned. She has the same hulking slouch and grumpy gaze as her mother. That in itself may kill any thoughts of interaction.

  3. While the White House is turned into a trivial TV show the old mighty US is slowly sinking and eroding. I read a real eye-opener by Nile Gardiner in Daily Telegraph this morning. 128 million Americans ( more than two in five ) are now on government programs. At the same time the government debt as a a percentage of GDP ( 109,8 % ) now exceeds that of the general Euro area ( 100,6 % ). Greece, within that area, is of course the real basket case with 181,3 %. But, without a dramatic reversal in the approach on economic politics the US may slowly skid in that direction. Obama and cohorts have nothing to laugh about. How I wish someone could throw them out.

  4. Really, is this tool EVER going to start work before 10 am again?!

    His arse should be in the office by 8 am every day. It’s not like he has a commute or anything.

    He’s the biggest loser ever to occupy the Oval Office.

    • “Tool”?

      Tools are useful. Barry is not.
      One would think that he would have more important things to attend to, instead of screening a TV show and hanging out with slobbering sycophants.

      • Depends on your purpose.

        If your purpose is the weakening and destruction of The United States by dividing its people, demoralizing its military, and squandering its wealth, then Obama is a VERY useful tool.

        Utility does not speak to the good or evil of a particular use, it merely states that there is a use. He would not like the comparison, but its the same way that a gun can be used for good, or for evil, but there’s no denying either way it can be used.

        So, sorry to disagree with you, but I’m afraid Obama IS, in fact, a “useful” tool.

        God help us all.

  5. Did anyone else cringe when he said introducing Hagel ‘the military are getting the leadership they deserve’? He’s going to gut the military to the point it endangers not only them but America.

      • Sent a chill up my spine. You can’t simply start cutting while you have men and women in harms way but Obama and his cowardly minions
        have shown with Benghazi they don’t care. Thank God these folks
        weren’t in office when we were preparing for DDay we’d all be speaking

    • Jaw dropping! “Leadership the military deserves”? Chuck, who? Hagel? Seriously? Care to elaborate on that one?? Is that why Iran just expressed their explicit approval of the nominee? Oh, but of course. Hagel was only one of two Senators who voted against Iran sanctions. He also voted against the Iraq surge. When he was head of the USO he voted to close the operation in Haifa. He said: “Let the Jews pay for it”. That Chuck Hagel? Now it all makes sense.The two lefty fringe-players from the Senate have re-united. Ain’t love grand?

    • Not just watch and host a TV show and its cast but during normal business hours!

      Can you imagine a business doing this (unless they had a tie-in with the TV Show)?

    • This show has gotten bad reviews. Guess its a favor for Lovitz who
      wrote it and was listed as a speech writer for Obama. That’s very telling
      guess he looks upon speeches as entertainment rather than anything

  6. Remember all those meetings with his senior advisors ? What ever happened to those? Campaign over or something?

    I usually like political humor, but 1600 Penn just looks silly especially that the focus seems to be on the big buffoon son. Although Jenna Elfman’s (Dharma and Greg) in the cast is probably why Obama’s having his little Hollywood screening. hee, hee. Of course, the cast is required to be there for the PR. And they will swoon over BO appropriately.
