THE SHOW "Meet the Press," hosted by David Gregory.
WHEN|WHERE Sundays at 10:30 a.m. on WNBC/4
REASON TO WATCH That is the question, and one President Barack Obama apparently asked himself, too, as he bypassed TV's venerable Sunday news institution for another show on the very same network - "The Tonight Show" - where he'll appear tonight to talk about the stimulus package.
WHAT IT'S ABOUT The president's decision to slip past "Meet the Press" would seem like a massive diss of new host Gregory - in the job three months - but this is politics, and politics is to a certain degree about expediency. The expedient choice for Obama was "Tonight," where he'll talk about an enormously complex plan that will affect every man, woman and child in the country until the day they die - while cracking a few jokes in the process. Still begs the question, though: Why Jay Leno instead of Gregory?

Eventually, the snubbing of the press will come back to haunt the Great One, and some of his followers will eventually lose their pacifiers. You know how a baby will respond, if the pacifier goes missing! But then again, Obama probably assumes he already has the press that matters on his side--like daily briefings with his "personal press pal" - George Stephanopoulos.
If it twas really audience numbers he wanted, Mr. Obama should have booked a spot on American Idol.
Somethings terribly wrong when the President goes on Jay Leno instead of a real show where real questions will be asked. Why? Because he doesn’t like hard questions. He’s a lightweight. How long til the rest of America wakes up to this fact? They will see him on Leno and love him because they are all still enjoying the bread and circuses.
Bam is taking Idol's time slot next week!
Of course the man is an empty suit and an empty head. He cannot appear where he may have to think and reply off the cuff because he has nothing of his own to say.
He is really not capable of performing the duties of POTUS and is the perfect puppet for the Democratic party to implement its Communist agenda.
I heard on the news this morning (local Fox affiliate) that the networks are griping about the money they lose when Obama commandeers them in prime time. I guess he has another Castro-rama scheduled for next Tuesday, IIRC.
It’s Zerowinkie the Gay Telepromptertubbie.
That is excellent! It’s now my laptops backround. Thanks!
After Leno it’s off for Captain Kangaroo, Romper Room and then a tough Q&A from Barney the dinosaur.
” Gregory is terrifically polished, well-informed, a good listener and has the talking points of both sides down cold. But he also seems more intent on covering the waterfront than digging for news, or in pushing the talking heads off their talking points.”
~Head spins wildly while reading this~
So, IOW, Zero is going on Leno because Gregory can’t fill Russet’s shoes and is “more intent on covering the waterfront than digging for news, or in pushing the talking heads off their talking points.”
Oh sure. Leno is going to dig into the fine economic points and in the spirit of bipartisanship, find the truth.
Who the hell writes this stuff? Goebbels?
I would love to sneak into the Dinosaur costume and sing.
I love you, you love me
Why the Quid Pro Quo with A. I. G.?
The teleprompter said NO WAY.
Well, uh, he is pre-empting American Idol, uh, next week.
No doubt the teleprompter will speak, take no questions, and depart.
TOTUS was needed urgently at a top level cabinet meeting.
bammy had to go play in his room until it was free.
