President Obama Requests May Sweeps Timeslot
TVGuide.com ^ | April 23, 2009

Posted on 04/24/2009 4:15:27 AM PDT by TomGuy

President Barack Obama has asked to make a prime-time appearance during May sweeps.

White House officials have requested up to an hour of airtime for Wednesday, April 29, according to TV Week. The press conference, which falls on the 100th day of Obama's presidency, will probably air in the 8 o'clock hour and address questions of the president's performance.

Broadcast networks have not yet announced their response, but a source said that they will most likely agree to the administration's request.

Will you tune in to President Obama's "100 Days" press conference? Or have there been too many already?

The Narcissist-in-Chief demands more attention.

His wife must get pretty tired of answering his “Mirror, mirror on the wall” questions.

“President Obama Requests May Sweeps Timeslot”

It’s going to a long four years and a long couple of years until 2010. (Then again, maybe the “electorate” will keep these psychotic Democrats in office forever.)

IMHO

Today it is a “request”.

Tomorrow it will be a “demand”.

Next, a “command.”

They better start turning him down now or soon they won’t be allowed to deny his dictates.

"Up to an hour"?

How long does it take him to read "Bush's fault" off the teleprompter?

most of his brain dead supporters are either high or drunk at 8 PM-he should do it at noon-most of them would probably willing to get out of bed early to watch him.

Ah, yes.....another “I inherited.....” press conference!

The MSM will never turn Obama down for a press conference in one of the most expensive timeslots though they did turn Bush down for less important timeslots.

Maybe he's going to announce that the value of my energy and natural resource funds have increased in the last 100 days?
His only other accomplishment is earning his Honorary Degree in Submissive Servitude at Madam Pelosi’s Institute of Ill Repute, but I'm not expecting him to announce that...

These fake press conferences are getting tiresome. The questions are submitted for approval. The names are called from a list. The whole thing is an insult to the First Amendment.

I’ll “go green” during that hour and turn off the TV.

Hopefully the major TV networks will lose a ton of money by giving a way their most profitable time slots to 0bama.

My crystal ball predicts in the near future mandatory viewing of his speeches, all movie houses must show speeches before the main film.

All NASCAR events must have a Obama speech in place of the singing of the National Anthem.

All students will memorized the new pledge of Allegiance to the United 57 states of Obama.

Every day he's on the tube. Never says anything -- just yada, yada, yada.

From Atlas Shrugged...

Mr. Thompson, the head of state... (possessed)enormous official powers, he schemed ceaselessly to expand. because it was expected of him by those who had pushed him into office. He had the cunning of the unintelligent and the frantic energy of the lazy. The sole secret of his rise in life was the fact that he was a product of chance and knew it and aspired to nothing else.

Why don't the networks just announce a new talk show that will be previewing soon - The Obama Show - airing 1 hour every week on all channels - a fun filled "answer and question show" * with lots of goofy characters. The ending will be soap opera style, leaving us asking, "but when, who, how, why...?" and we will have to tune in next week to find out. (Shhh. We never really find out!)

*Kind of like Jeapordy - the reporters get the answers ahead of time and have to figure out the questions to ask.

Which is exactly what I believe it will be about. Immigration reform to be backed by mass demonstrations of solidarity by the Che followers here in the U.S.

I am at the point where I believe that only way the destruction of the U.S. will be stopped is if we are willing to stand in front of these invaders and make them leave. Otherwise we are done.

I generally just start ranting every time this empty suit is on the air. Next week I will plan to do something better like go outside and watch the grass grow.

Why nut just run the teleprompter as a scroll below whatever is supposed to be aired at that time, at least I don’t have to listen to the Kenyan pontificating and patting himself on the back while kicking to the curb the entire history of the US.

My wife asked why is 100 days important. My answer, because it is 100 less days in office.

make a prime-time appearance during May sweeps.

Why? He never says anything important. It's all about him and how he looks in front of the camera.
I'll bet he spends every evening watching reruns of himself.

The man is CREEPY.

Yes but they don’t like him messing with their show. Hopefully he will over expose himself and they will start turning on him because of his excessive need to preempt prime time shows. TV addicts don’t like having their shows interrupted.

Saw a clip of him this morning sitting around the table with the credit card companies and he had a cheat sheet he was looking at after about every other word as he made his “statement”. He is a fraud.

He needs his own channel. “All Obama All The Time.” The line-up would look something like this:

9am to 11am - Obama’s let their dog out.
10:00 to 10:30 - Obamas tend their garden
10:30 to noon - Obamas eat breakfast
Noon to 1:00 - Obama goes to the oval office for banking takeover
1:00 to 4:00 - Obamas takes Air Force One for a spin and goes to St. Louis for pizza (”He is the leader of the free world. He could fly someone in from Italy if he wanted. He’s got the hardest job in America. That ought to entitle him to a few perks.”)
4:00 - 5:00 - Obama bowls.
5:00 - 7:00 - Mr. and Mrs. Obama go on date night.
7:00 - midnight - Obama does press conference ( press does not attend)
midnight to 9am - Watch the Obamas sleep
