Critics (And Raging Rosie) Hate On The President For Doing The View!

| Filed under: TV NewsBarbara WaltersBarack Obama

This morning, President Barack Obama sat down with the ladies of The View, including Barbara Walters, for a full hour interview.

It marks the first time a sitting President makes an appearance on daytime television, but the critics are focusing more on the venue than the achievement.

Before Obama even stepped foot onto the set yesterday, critics were harping on his decision to do the show. S.E. Cupp of the New York Daily News summed up the sentinment pretty well, writing an editorial titled, "Two wars, oil crisis, crashed economy and he's whooping it up with Whoopi." In the article, she writes:

"Obama will surely discuss the state of the nation on The View, in between coos and leg pats from Sherri, wisecracks from Joy and earnest pseudo-journalism from Elisabeth, but it's unlikely he'll change the minds of voters who are increasingly unimpressed that our President is a wiz at self-promotion, but no good at steering the nation through these tricky straits."

This seems to be a shared view of former View co-anchor, Rosie O'Donnell. On her XM talk show yesterday, she tore into the President, saying: "I don't really think sitting presidents should do fluffy daytime TV shows."

Are those the sour grapes talking or is that really how you feel?

Personally, we're going to wait to watch the interview before we make a decision, though we do see everyone's point that he has a lot more important stuff going on that he should focus on.

What do U think?

Always looking for a way to hate on Babs!

    srsly? people just NEED things to bitch about, don't they? it was less than an hour out of his time. at least he's reaching the people of America..



  2. 2

    Rosie is an asshole.



  3. 3

    ROSIE IS A EFFING FAT BITCH HYPOCRITE. IF THE PREZ SHOWED UP ON HER SHOW SHE WOULD HAVE HIM ON IN A SECOND. LONG ENOUGH TO KEEP HER FAT MOUTH SHUT FROM EATING ANOTHER DONUT. SINCE WE'RE TALKING CUTTING EXPENDITURES HOW ABOUT FAT ASS ROSIE CUT HER FOOD BUDGET AND INSTALL A GASTRIC BYPASS. NEXT.



  4. 4

    It may be a fluffy daytime show, but a lot of people watch it. I thought the interview was fine. Sherri for the most part kept her dumb ass mouth shut, & ya could yet again, sort of tell by E-bitch's body language, that she was seething.
    Funny that the Pres knows Justin Bieber(from some WH event), but said he had no idea who Snooki was. I think that's probably a good thing. I just don't see him lounging at night watching the Shore, or the real Housewives. Now, if he could get more important things actually done!



  5. 5

    I don't think the President should be allowed to go to the bathroom. He also shouldn't be allowed to sleep and spend all of his waking hours thinking only about us and how screwed up we are. He may have inherited alot, but golly gee he needs to work harder. Say what you will about quitting Sarah Palin, but I think that she's the hardest working mom out there. Just look at how wonderfully she's raised her children and she's been to 5 colleges, but what persistence!!!



  6. 6

    I TOTALLY agree with Rosie. This President is ALL about being a Rock Star. He keeps the same BS policies as the last President. It's more status quo BS. There is no change…as a matter of fact, if there is change…it's the fact that Obama has spread this war! BRING OUR TROOPS HOME!!!!!!



  7. 7

    love rosie BUT…. cmon .. if these republicans keep on drilling into the brainless..(elizabeth) that he is a bad president, then people start to believe there twisted view of him.
    he represents himself better than anyone else ..



  8. 8

    She makes some valid points but that doens't change the fact that she is miserable and needs to feel revelant by opening her big mouth! She needs to shut one trap and open another! Maybe she'll be happier!



  9. 9

    His constituents watch the show. The show covers a wide variety of timely topics in a casual atmosphere, and represents a full spectrum of views. Why not? No one criticizes him for sitting down with Matt Lauer, and the Today Show isn't all serious news.



  10. 10

    Unfortunately, a lot of America refuses to watch "real news" or even investigate issues on the internet or in a newspaper…. so The View may be the only opportunity for people to see/hear what the President has to say.



  11. 11

    i think its incredibly inappropriate for the president of the united states, commander in chief, taking a seat and sipping coffee with day time talk show hosts of zero credibility.. whilst our nation is fighting two wars, hanging on by a thread with a failing economy, ZERO gay rights, and coping with the massive impact of a lethal oil spill. NOT TO MENTION there are terrible things happening all over the world this very minute and you have time to sit and chat for self-promotion? It's incredibly inappropriate.



  12. 12

    This is a joke. How blind can America be? Sure…I'm glad Obama has time to be the first president on a daytime talk show…he must have sorted out all of our country's problems in between his lavish vacation to Hawaii, an interview on Letterman, and showing the world his NBA bracket on ESPN! What is more important? Our president "reaching out to America" or dealing with the mess that is our country. You don't need to know anything about politics or even current affairs to realize that a GIANT RED FLAG should be waving around when our president has time to become a fame whore. He is more concerned about inviting half of Hollywood to the White House than make any dent in our problems.
    WAKE UP AMERICA. OPEN YOUR EYES.



  13. 13

    "It marks the first time a sitting President makes an appearance on daytime television, but the critics are focusing more on the venue than the achievement."

    What 'achievement'? Making it on The View is an achievement? Well, with his plummeting favorability, I suppose you could be kind and put a happy-face sticker on the board for Obamas 'achievement' of successfully chatting on the view with Joy and Whoopie! Good job, B.O.

    what a total douche



  14. 14

    Rosie is taking an example straight out of your book…..hating on Babs..just like you hate on JLove, Maniston, Simpleton any chance you get. Hypocrite much?



  15. 15

    Rosie's opinion means nothing to most of the USofA, or to anyone for that matter. She should just learn to shut her big fat mouth.

    As far as the Pres being on The View, BIG DEAL. I see absolutely nothing wrong with it whatsoever. His haters are always finding ways to criticize him, so who cares? Surely not most of us.



  16. 16

    This is just ridiculous. That article sums it up. This douche bag is really making me wish more people voted for Hilary.



  17. 17

    Seriously?!?!?! I watched the interview. This man can't be anymore of a disappointment to this nation! He claims this and he claims that, but where are the FACTS?! Are people proud of voting for this man? My husband is in the USMC Active Duty and has seen so many negatives of him being in the presidential seat. Our raises got cut off, spouse schooling got cut off, less money for the things that they need to stay safe as they fight for our freedom. These are all things that he has taken away and now he is trying to act like he is a saint by trying to bring them back…. YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TAKEN THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE!!! He makes me sick just looking at him and what he's done. He has put this nation in ruins!!! Look up your facts people!!!



  18. 18

    Oh, yeah. I get ALLLL my information and opinions from the NY Daily News. Puleeeeze, girl.



  19. 19

    Ya the fame whoring lame excuse for a president…ughhh so dumb



  20. 20

    WORSE PRESIDENT EVER. EVER!!!!!!!!!! C'mon November 2012.



  21. 21

    I think it's cool that the President is trying to reach out to the people.

    But it's also like going to a bar with mom.. Just weird



  22. 22

    He's way too concerned about being mr. celebrity rather than dealing with the real SERIOUS issues of your country. Very Pathetic. WORST president ever.
    He has done nothing.



  23. 23

    People need to Stop Blaming Obama for all the mess that Bush left behind him…. A lot work need to be done to put the country in track… I wish Republican would leave their own interest and work with Obama to try to get something done for our country!
    People need to understand that any destruction can be done in minutes even seconds but re-built something can take years even decades ! !



  24. 24

    Personally, I think it is refreshing to have a President who can speak to the people without hiding behind his podium with teleprompters. Every news conference and speech that the President gives is always so formal and stuffy and this is a way to talk to the "average American" in a casual way and make it more "watchable". I honestly don't see what the big deal is. He obviously wants to stay connected with the people and I think that is a good thing.



  25. 25

    I think that I've seen thousands of scouts running around DC who probably wish the president hadn't blown off their anniversary jamboree just so he could attention whore with Sherri Shepard.



  26. 26

    If you go on dailynews.co.uk, there are photographs of Nicholas Sarkosvy on the movie set while his wife does 40 outakes of a scene. This is nothing.



  27. 27

    get a life there are more important things to complain about in this world..will we ever a "good enough" president? probably not until the economy turns around and etc.



  28. 28

    Why is this SOOO outrageous but no one bats an eye when A SITTING PRESIDENT OH MY does a Late Night talk show? Because it's dark outside? The View may be mostly fluffy, but the women do have serious discussions. Late night talk is ALL about poking fun. It's nothing but fluff. So, what's the difference?



  29. 29

    Just finished watching it and my first thought was: Obama always makes me feel that life is okay. I was grateful for that interview and a president should stay connected to the people AND joke around a bit. I like this man a lot and he has A LOT of crap to deal with that Bush put on his plate. For once I disagree with Rosie.



  30. 30

    Re: Not my gumdrop buttons! – Worst president ever? He's left with all the garbage from the Bush days which took 8 years to mess up to the point it is today and Obama is suppose to wave his miracle wand and make it all better in two years he's been at the White House? not realistic at all.



  31. 31

    "It marks the first time a sitting President makes an appearance on daytime television, but the critics are focusing more on the venue than the achievement."

    ^ Achievement? How is the President of the United States sitting in on some gabfest an achievement? Bottom line is, this guy is on TV way too much! He needs to shut up and get to work!!



  32. 32

    I think it's ridiculous. Talk about dumbing down of the position of President.



  33. 33

    Re: Not my gumdrop buttons! – WORST PRESIDENT EVER IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE GEORGE W. BUSH WHO CONVENIENTLY WON BY HAVING THE ELECTIONS RIGGED IN FLORIDA…



  34. 34

    S.E. Cupp is an idiot and nothing she has to say is worth listening to.



  35. 35

    I completely agree 100%!!!! Pathetic, he's the President and instead he's hanging out with celebrities and going on talk shows? I just read that he wasn't invited to Chelsea Clintons wedding? Boo-Hoo…. Why would he be? Give me a break, is this what being President has turned into? He really needs to be focused on fixing all the shit he has screwed up rather than being best friends with celebs. What a JOKE!!!!!



  36. 36

    He should have accepted the invitation for the Boy Scout's 100 yr anniversary. It happens, ya know, once in a hundred years. The view is on every weekday.
    He's a smuck.



  37. 37

    "I don't really think sitting presidents should do fluffy daytime TV shows." Oh really Rosie. Why not?? YOU DID and received payment for doing so. How ugly is the mouth that was once fed by the hand!



  38. 38

    OMG. I never in THIS lifetime I would agree with Risie- but I do.



  39. 39

    This is ridiculous! Our President is doing an interview on the VIEW!!!! WTF has happened to this world?! He is a shamless self promoting famewhore! I think he has more important things to worry about than going on the View! Oh well, I knew that this would happen, I mean have we ever had a president who was one every cover of every trash tabloid mag, and every entertaiment "news" show?! Not that I can remember, Obama is the biggest celebrity in the world! Unfortuantely he just isn't as good at being a president as he is being a fame whore!



  40. 40

    I don't see the big deal here. Part of being a president is self promotion or whatever you want to call it. Now when he has meetings with celebrities in the privacy of his home, I don't get that. That seems like a waste of time to me and like he's just using his presidency to meet celebs. But this is no different than a state of the union address if you ask me.

  41. rayna says – reply to this


    41

    He's a narcissist. He'd never subject himself to real valid questions - only go on shows that are pre-taped, edited and stacked with vapid admirers. He's the worst president in our history. Anyone who is not delusional, who actually wanted to know the truth would see that. Being on the View is NOT reaching out to America. Going to the Boy Scout's 100 Jubilee would have been much more so. Dead-eyed Sherrie, libtards Joy, Woopie and Bawbra hardly represent America.



  42. 42

    WOW HE TOOK 1 LOUSY HOURRRR TO DO A SHOW!!!! BIG EFFING DEAL!!! HE ALSO DID DO OTHER PRESIDENTIAL THINGS WHILE HE WAS HERE !!!! GET A GRIP PEOPLE SERIOUSLYYYY!!!!!!!



  43. 43

    I just wish he could come up with something to stop the violence and agression in America. I hate feeling afraid all the time. I wish the American public wasn't so sue happy etc. They want to have personal guns which I guess is their right to do but I just live terrified as ever since I moved to the south where the locals scare me to death and it seems to be allowed. I can't afford to leave and haven't been able to find a job here. My degree from Tulane which I thought was their best college has gotten me no where. Please Mr President, where have I gone wrong?



  44. 44

    Re: DSummerfan – Always with the blaming Bush for the current problems! Let me guess in 2012 when there's a white guy in office again, he won't be able to blame Obama because that would be racist! At what point will Obama quit cry babying about what Bush did or didn't do, and suck it up and do his job. Because as of yet, all I've heard is a bunch of talk from him and no action!



  45. 45

    You people…American People, have to sit back and put things into perspective. It does not matter what Obama does, people are going to find something wrong with it. I could go on all day about George Bush and how he literally destroyed our Nations reputation on the international level, but no one would have anything to say about that. Be appreciative that Obama has found several venues to speak to the people including television and stop being so judgemental. He cant solve extensive issues in 2 years, lets be real here!!! I cant stand when people complain but can never help to create solutions.



  46. 46

    For once I agree with the disgusting fat cow Rosie! No President should prostitute himself going on these irrelevant talk shows, both daytime and night time shows. These shows do not attract intelligent viewers who have brains to think without being spoon fed.



  47. 47

    S.E. Cupp is a fraud and a piece of shit. She's a puppet for fox news who endorses Christianity while claiming to be an atheist in order to look like she's coming from an "objective" point of view. Her goal is to intermix religion and politics so that come 2012 people will be voting on religion alone. She's Sarah Palin 2.0 who can only string sentences together a little bit better. PLEASE never quote her again, Perez, it upsets me.
    Barack Obama took an hour to sit down on a talk show. He did not go on a week long publicity tour. Those who say Barack Obama has done nothing have NO idea what they're talking about. As Joy said on the show to Barack, "obviously you haven't walked on water." Obama has done a good job sorting out the mess Bush left him with, and people need to stop facing him with the criticism "WHY ISN'T OUR COUNTRY PERFECT YET?"

    48

    daytime talk shows would have been a good career move for him….too bad we let him be President of the United States….what a joke



  49. 49

    Re: rayna – Who are you to dictate who represents America. You point the finger but instead you should realize that any person living here represents this country whether you like it or not! Obama should be able to conduct a simple interview without ignorant individuals like you calling him the worst. Look at yourself in the mirror and realize before you chastize other!



  50. 50

    I agree. He has been a fame whore since he started running for President.



  51. 51

    It is totally ridiculous for the president of the United States of America to be on The View…. I don't understand why everyone can't see this. It shouldn't take a blurb from Rosie O Lameass Donell to bring this to light. In fact, it's vaguely insulting considering that perhaps we would all be better served with him at work, doing the things we elected him to do, drafting up some motherf**king plans and making deals over power lunches.

    Yes We Can?… what, TALK all day?



  52. 52

    IT WAS A RIDICULOUS WASTE OF HIS TIME!

    I watched the interview and I went into it believing it was a ridiculous venue and that he was really slumming it. I was right. While his intelligent answers to real issues is always impressive in a clintonian way, it was the 'pop' questions that burned me. HOW DARE THEY ASK HIM QUESTIONS ABOUT LOHAN, SNOOKI, ETC!!!!!!!!!!!

    What the HELL is the matter with them????!!!! Oh right…..they are complete and total idiots. I wanted to punch Sherri in the face when she mentioned Snooki. Talk about degrading his office and reflecting your dumbass IQ Sherri!! way to go.

    And Elizabitch needs to GROW THE FUCK UP. Her huffing and sighing was DISRESPECTFUL at the very least. But I'm sure Ann Coulter gave you a few extra winds of the tool on your back. She is a mindless wind up toy and needs to go play in her kids schoolyard with people equal to her maturity.

    so yeah….it was a WASTE of Obama's time and a big slap in the face of true Americans.



  53. 53

    Re: DSummerfan – Yes…It is true…however a lot of these thing go back to Clinton. Anyway, HE ISN'T DOING ANYTHING. That is where the problem lies. Yes it takes time, we get that. But DO SOMETHING.



  54. 54

    Re: LisaRose – He makes you feel everything is okay? That's nice, I wonder if the millions of other people out there feel the same way… you know like the ones who lost their houses and can't afford to stay home and watch The View and are waiting with bated breath for something, ANYthing to happen. You know, all those Change speeches? I'm not saying that this is all Obama's fault, we were in a huge disarray before he came into office but doing daytime talk shows chatting it up with those old ladies in front of an audience of housewives is surely not the way towards being seen favorably in the eyes of the recently destitute and he's most certainly not blazing the trail for action while sitting there looking pretty making everyone "feel" all warm and toasty inside.



  55. 55

    between the VIEW and his vacates~ when does he actually work?



  56. 56

    Cupp and Rosie are 100% correct! I'd be much more impressed if he'd solve some of the crises the country is experiencing. What is he accomplishing by going on this idiotic show? Get to work Mr. Prez.



  57. 57

    This is the first time I can honestly say that I regret voting for someone. I really didn't like Bush and hoped Obama would be something different and inspire. I was wrong. Nothing has gotten better and its only getting worse.



  58. 58

    life- CHECK. taken away by obamacare
    pursuit of happieness- CHECK. taken away by the new financial reform bill
    liberty- media control. almost check…
    we're on the road to no longer being a republic- WAKE UP AMERICA

    GOOD OLE ROSIE. HAVE NOT HEARD ABOUT HER IN AGES. GUESS SHE LLOKING FOR SOME PUBLICITY.
    A. HE WENT ON THE VIEW, WITH LIZZY HASSELBECK, A STAUNCH RIGHT WINGER. I THINK THAT IS BRAVE.
    B. HE ANSWERED ALL QUESTIONS AND THEN SOME.
    WHAT IS SO BAD ABOUT THAT??
    THINK HE WAS VERY INFORMATIVE.L
    ALSO WATCH THE FOX NETWORK TONITE.
    HERE IS THEIR SPIN.
    HOW CAN OUR PRES BE ON A TV SHOW WITH THE OIL SPILL, THE ARIZONA, PROBLEMS, THE WAR, AND ON AND ON OUT HTERE.
    HE RATHER BE ON TV TALK SHOWS THAN TAKE CRE OF BUSINESS NEEDING TAKEN CARE OF??
    I AM SURE THIS WILL BE THERE SPIN. JUST LIKE THEY CAME DOWN ON HIM FOR A VACTION HE TOOK WITRH FAMILY, ETC ETC. THIS CRAP NEVER ENDS.

  62. tonym says – reply to this


    62

    LEAST WE ALL FORGET, OBAMA DID NOT CREATE THE 2 WARS, THE PLUNGING ECONOMY, THE FORCLOSURES. THE WALL STREET PROBLEMS, AND ON AND ON. HE INHERITED THEM. CHALLENGE TO ALL OPPOSING HIM. RAHTER THAN JUST BASH HIM ETC, WHY NOT POST SOLUTIONS FOR ALL THE USA PROBLEMS? THAT TO MUCH TO ASK?
    U NEVER EVER HEAR FOX NEWS ETC OFFER HELP OR SOLUTIONS , JUST SQUACK LIKE WOUNDED DUCK BECAUSE OBAMA IS A DEM. IF HE WAS GOP, THEY WOULD BE PRAISING HIM . THAT IS WHAT OUR POLITIC ARE ALL AOBUT , DEMJS ANTI GOP, VISA VERSA AND WE ALL SUFFER, BOTTOM LINE FOX TALKS FORM BOTH SIDES OF MOUTH DEPENDING WHO IN OFFICE. THEY NEVER ONCE COMPLAINED ABOUT THE DOWNFALL WHEN BUSH, OUR DUMBEST PRES EVER, WAS STILL IN OFFICE.



  63. 63

    HEY I DONT CARE FOR HER MUCH BUT SHE HAS A POINT AND A VERY GOOD ONE.THIS PRESIDENT SUCKS BIG TIME.BUSH WAS BAD BUT OBAMA IS WORST



  64. 64

    It was silly of him to go on "The View." He thinks he's a celebrity, not the leader of the greatest nation on earth.



  65. 65

    I kinda agree. I voted for President Obama and I wouldn't change it considering who the alternative was, but if someone better than him runs against him next term I will probably vote for them. I'm not impressed with his work thus far and he has more important things to be doing than sitting down on a shitty show like the view where they won't ask him any hard pressing questions and Hasselbitch will bite her tounge until he's 200 miles away and then start harping about how crappy of a president he is.

    Re: tonym – hey Tony, Obama didn't create the fiasco we are in but he certaintly contributed to it while in the senate along with Frank, Dodd, Pelosie and Waters to name a few. Their policies which were pushed through did infact create the economical mess we are in today. Furthermore the current policies of Obama and his administration have excellerated the economic conditions we are in and prolonged a recession that by all economist accounts should have ended at worst 8 months ago. Now as for a fix its really simple. Stay out of the way of the people and small business, let them keep their money and have them put it to work as they see fit instead of believing the government knows what to do best with your money. Cut taxes, stop and reduce spending, less government intervention, more personal responsibility. Its really quite simple.



  67. 67

    Re: Not my gumdrop buttons! – Oh I guess you weren't around for that whole George W. Bush thing huh? If you're making statements like that.



  68. 68

    The Obamas are more concerned with being celebrities and making money than running our country..Just you wait, Once hes done..The amount of books and talk shows he does will be insane.



  69. 69

    Obama is lame, lame, LAME to do The View. A sitting president should never do such a fluff show. Seems like there are more important issues at hand for him to focus on these days. Too bad he isn't a leader. He is only good at campaigning.



  70. 70

    Re: WMariah – After two years in office, it's not realistic at all to blame the past administration for all the problems. It's WEAK.



  71. 71

    i am a liberal democrat and disappointed with his choice to do the view… he is grasping and obviously desperate to impact midterm elections.. however i blame the the bush years for our current situation not this administration.. i might be laid off but obama is not a miracle worker he was left with a mess.. he has past alot of good legislation but shit takes time unfortunately



  72. 72

    Re: rayna – why dont you go and suck geoge bush's dick



  73. 73

    i'm just pissed he let down all the scouts…wtf is up with that? chatting with a bunch of delusional old ladies on their pointless tv show vs. showing support and interest in the young responsible youth of the country he just happens to be the president of. i mean, wtf.



  74. 74

    Re: Not my gumdrop buttons! – You got him confused with bush. I have faith america has a brian and he will be the pes in 2012 if not another dem.Re: skim96 – that really shows how dumb you are hes created a national healthcare reform for the country while bush stated a war with a country that didn't attack us.



  75. 75

    I am happy the president took the time out to not only have a good laugh but to discuss some of the problems and concerns that people are having. George Bush took was in office for 8 years and tore this country down, and I thank President Obama with going forward to help rebuild it. It will not be done in the blink of an eye but at least we are finally moving in the right direction so Rosie you can SHUT IT!!!



  76. 76

    Re: DSummerfan

    You are confused. Very, very confused. You must be under 25 and uninformed.



  77. 77

    I think Rosie is right.



  78. 78

    Rosie's right.

    I lost all respect for Obama when he did this. His PR people were probably trying to sell him to the uneducated (the demographic of this show) but it was a moronic, idiotic move!



  79. 79

    It was a GREAT show! I think he's steering this country just fine. We seriously have to be patient. Change is not going to happen over night or in 18 months.
    He handled the interview brilliantly and there was NOTHING wrong with him doing it.
    Rose: Sour grapes for sure.



  80. 80

    It is so sad to see all these haters. Really sad.



  81. 81

    Looking for ways to hate on him? No need to look, he provides that oppurnity everyday it seems. I want to like him, but he's traveling for dumb crap at all times more than worrying about our jobs… our military… our environment. She is completely right.

    He came to a school in my town for a graduation. Why? Then he went into a small town again 3 months later… again, for what?

    People don't realize how much these 'trips' cost, EACH trip is roughly thousands of dollars, maybe more.

    It hurts me to see my husband deploy and have no option but to support his leader, when he is more worried about his rep than his country.

    It's also very disgusting to read how some people are running Rosie down, like she is some terrible person for feeling this way… Obama is our PRESIDENT, not a movie star. He is honestly too good for these cheap talk shows in my opinion! He should be turning this offers down and stating "I have more to worry about". Then I would respect him much more!

    The people who are using terrible language here is scary. It makes everyone who voted for him look so ignorant. This country is dying fast, and he's speeding it up. Maybe someday people will see, but it won't be until it's too late.

    Where is the love anymore…



  82. 82

    Re: chrisbrwnsbadplace – Republicans? I love to drill into people who terrible of a president he is, he's too laid back and down to earth to run a country for one; he is more worried about fame than his JOB… to the working people out there, doesn't it kinda hurt to see the taxes being taken out of each paycheck to support the stupid crap he does??? Or are you all THAT brainwashed.

    I'm not a Republican! Haha it's not just them who feel this way either, a lot of Democrats are severely disappointed too. Get your facts straight first, hun.



  83. 83

    I love how everyone keeps saying he has to deal with all the crap Bush left behind, etc. but the oil spill didn't happen under Bush's term! Wtf has Barack done about that?! Nothing!! He's too busy playing golf every day. Yes, that's right. Obama has played more golf in the short time he's been in office than Bush did in eight years! But I guess that's just another "achievement," LoL!!



  84. 84

    Re: MyGuiltyPleasure – You, my dear, are pulling nonsense out of your ass. (People do that sometimes when they have no idea what they're talking about but try to look smart anyways.) When you say he's done "nothing," do you mean he hasn't single handedly made the oil spill crisis disappear yet entirely? Was he supposed to dress himself and Sasha and Malia in scuba suits with hand nets and take them down to the gulf to scoop up oil? Where were you when Obama made the national announcement that BP was to cover the costs not only to clean up the oil, but to also cover the financial losses of EVERY american whose income depended on a clean gulf (fishermen, works of resorts other tourist companies, etc)? You didn't hear? Oh, Perez didn't make a post about that. To everyone else who relies on this website as their sole news source, (meaning all you know about our president and his work for the past two years is that he went on The View today and that Rosie and that stupid shady bitch S.E. Cupp criticized him for it) you can stop commenting too. Also, if you have down syndrome. Stop contributing. That irks me.

    Re: MyGuiltyPleasure – Also, did you take a tally of the number of golf games played by both Bush and Obama and compare the two? You're thoughts are way ahead of us; you had to have started this count ten years ago. Why haven't you published these statistics?!?!?

    Very tacky of Pres to go on The View. Need the women vote? Better ways of doing it. No one can debate or ask a good question on The View. Disappointed in him.

    Rosie's looking cute these days. Why does her opinion matter? Everyone's got one……….

    Re: MyGuiltyPleasure – Bush was at that Camp David every second-please!
    Even the President of the US needs R&R whether it's Bush, Obama-come on now!
    You're busy counting golf games?
    .
    President Obama secured $20 billion from BP to compensate the people and businesses' financial losses suffered due to the Gulf oil spill.
    This was done in case BP decided to quickly file bankruptcy or cut and run without compensation to those effected.
    The spill did not happen on Bush's watch but the complete deregulation of the oil companies did which allowed them to run amok and take short cuts like lying on their permit about safety/emergency protocol.
    It was on BPs permit that in the event a spill such as this occurred procedure was in place to promptly stop the leak.
    Obviously that was not the case…
    BP/Bush/Cheney/lobbying is reprehensible not Obama!

    Re: MyGuiltyPleasure – Obama's achievements to date:
    .
    Every presidential candidate promises to reform health care-Obama passed it.
    -despite fierce opposition from the right.
    Obama passed financial reform so Republican deregulated banks can no longer fuck us over, give out toxic loans and screw us out of our retirement! Republicans took the side of Wall St
    Obama passed it!
    -despite opposition from the right.
    Obama cut taxes for 95% of Americans and will increase by 3% taxes on the rich which = a deficit reduction
    -despite opposition from the right.
    (Unless one is wealthy, greedy and heartless this is good, no?)
    Obama will block the "Bush tax cut" extensions for the RICH which would further INCREASE the deficit
    -despite the party of no.

    Obama extended benefits for the unemployed and assisted home owners facing forclosure stay in their homes
    -despite opposition from the HEARTLESS right!
    Obama secured $20 billion from poor BP (does your heart not bleed for them)to cover the losses of the Gulf Coast people/businesses
    -despite Republicans taking BP's side by saying FUCK NO!
    .
    Bush ruined our economy-Obama is working on fixing it!

    Immigration reform, the repeal of DADT, cap & trade are in the works!
    In 2 years this is more progress made than by any other president!
    His policies are to help the vast majority of American people!

    These are only non achievements in the world of Fox propaganda news!

    it's true. he's more of a celebrity than a friggin president!



  91. 91

    I have yet to see president Obama make good on any of his campaign promises. He is really good at skirting around the real issues. He make a lot of promises in his speeches, but offers ABSOLUTELY ZERO solutions. November 2012 can't come soon enough!!!!



  92. 92

    With that said-The View is a dumb forum for the President of the US!

    Re: BettySueLou – Really? he did all of that by himself in a little more than a year? QUESTION: If you foster a problem child, do everything you think u can do right, to change the child, WHEN that child does something wrong who gets the blame, YOU or the SYSTEM that corrupted him? Just asking.

    Re: supersongbird – Awesome!!! Well put

  98. 98

    Jesus Christ, she looks terrible. Go to a spa or something.

    For eight years everyone bitched and moaned about how terrible Bush was and the huge mess he left behind. When Obama was running for President everywhere you turned (including television) the majority of people and celebrities (at least what I observed) were pushing for Obama to be elected. The majority of America got their wish…Obama was elected. There was a big mess left behind to start cleaning up, as well as the regular messes a President faces when helping to shape and create a better future. Now everyone is complaining about him. I hate to use this expression but "ROME WASN'T BUILT IN A DAY!" So how can people expect America to be fixed in 2 years. Obama doesn't have a magic wand to make things better in the blink of an eye, nor can he just decide to pass bills on his own. He (and every other President) are faced with opposition on everything they decide to do; that's a democracy; if you want a dictatorship than move to Cuba. I believe "Supersongbird" has a comment about all the things Obama has done this far. It takes a long time to get things passed. America isn't a formulaic CSI episode that can be solved in an hour (or maybe two); good things take time.
