Skip to comments.Obama to set record with Sunday TV time
Posted on 09/19/2009 7:45:56 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement
President Obama will appear on a record five TV networks on Sunday -- the morning talk shows of ABC, NBC, CBS and sit for interviews with CNN and Spanish-language network Univision.
Since becoming president, Obama will have done 124 print, broadcast and radio interviews, according to a tally by Maryland's Towson University -- three times more than George W. Bush did by the same point in his presidency.
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs says the interviews are "an attempt by the president to speak to as many different people as he can on an issue that's as important as something like health care reform or on Afghanistan."

this can’t possibly help him, can it?
People are sick of seeing and hearing him. He his digging deeper.
Speak to as many different people as possible? CNN, ABS, NBS and SeeBS are all the same network.
He is a snake oil salesmen.
preaching to the quire
Mr. Obama, The line is: “Big Brother is Watching You!” not “You Must Watch Big Brother!”.
Who does this guy think he is....Hugo Chavez??
Obama has killed the power of the bully pulpit by using it for his own selfish ends. Even with that power he cannot win over 50 percent support for health care reform.
Good. the more he talks, the more his policies are rejected.
Or My Mother the Car, anything, please!
Good let him waste his time ABCNNBCBS and their left wing shrieking head shows.
They have low numbers of viewers and probably the same worthless liberals for each show.
0b0z0 is a gutless piece scum and a coward by not going to Fox and having a discussion with Chris Wallace.
0z0z0 waste your time with your Ob0z0bots on ABCNNBCBS. They will accept your lies as their version of reality. Chris Wallace would not let you get by with your lies and bs.
Honest to god the worst position to be in was between John McCain and a camera..........now its obama.
Sheesh. What’s next? An appearance on a Sham-Wow infomercial?
They absolutely believe that advertising sells the proletariat things they don't really want, and they can use it to sell retarded BS like Obama care in just the same way.
Among many other things, he never learned in those years of education/indoctrination the old saying “familiarity breeds contempt”. Hopefully he’ll soon find out how true it is.
He might get a Dead Cat Bounce for a few days, then it's back to his usual -7 to -10 point approval averages.
The Incredible Mr. Limpet.
Who's afraid of the big bad Fox ....
I have dealt with people like him in corporate life which is something our little “community organizer” has never experienced.
Corporate life is vicious and cut throat.
What he is doing is what we would call ‘career suicide’. But that’s just me.
He's such a narcissist he can't realize that people don't want to listen to him all the time!!
Keep Talking 0. Keep Talking.
What was the old saying —”If the only tool you own is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail”.
When you’re a narcissistic psychopath with nothing but unwarranted “self-esteem” and a threadbare race card that you have your fellow narcissistic psychopaths keep putting into play, this looks like a logical move.
Instead being annoyed by Barry’s continual facetime on TV, I’m getting a angry about it. This actually says a lot about his motives. He is attempting to repeat Chavez all over again through the media, and they’re morons enoough to be his useful puppets.
Obama smells more fishy.
Here’s the deal, offer him a prime time talk show if he’ll step down.
I think that people are getting fed up with seeing him on the tube so much. I hope that he keeps it up.
“Sheesh. Whats next? An appearance on a Sham-Wow infomercial?”
....please....let’s not insult Vince....he’s the man ;-)
He's so stupid. The Washington Post put out a poll this week that indicated that the more people hear about this plan, the more they don't like it.
What does Obamunist do? The only thing he know how to do: continue to run his mouth.
These numbers ought to be real fun in about another week.
Won’t be over exposure for me. I won’t see any of them. There is way to much stuff to do around the house to spend time watching some lying politician spin their “plan” to spend money they don’t have.
Maybe a Quantum Leap marathon, since that is what it takes to go from rational person to buying the crap sandwich the TOTUS-reading fuhrer is peddling.
As usual its all about him. Obama has a serious narcissistic personality disorder that is already causing long term damage to this country.
He needs to review the constitution again. He thinks he is the Commander in charge of all speeches.
Whoopie - The USA now has an official speech giver
>>Obama smells more fishy.<<
Report him to email@example.com
Lately, in all his appearances, he has resorted to yelling & shouting like some crazed person!!
""Now we have what I would call the 'Obama omnipresence.' You almost can't escape this president," Madden told ABC News. "
When ABC news - liberal media - airs criticism about him, you know that everyone is getting pretty sick of him
And he's going to bleat the same meaningless platitudes, make the same vague promises, utter those same contradictory phrases, drone on and on about "Let me be clear. I believe ____, but I also believe _____", and finally...
blame all his woes on groups that can't stop him.
Exactly. Instead of looking critically at what is being offered, the masses fall for that false message. Once they realize their mistake and try to correct it, it’ll be d@mn near impossible to do so. Chavez beats down anyone who has opinions hat are contrary to Chavez’s plans.
That’s why I pray for continual strength and courage for Glenn Beck and others who are attempting to expose the corruption in our government and agencies.
You aren't kidding. I worked day shift last week - we have Fox news on the TV up in the corner of the room with the sound turned down (thankfully). It seems like every day, the pinko was on TV trying to sell healthcare. He gets more air time than Billy Mills did when he was around. Too bad that the bill of goods that Obambi is selling isn't only $19.95.
The Movie channel will get top ratings.
But in the distance, I noticed some passers-by stop and gaze at one photo -- gaze in astonishment. For a good 30 seconds or more. I saw one woman with a huge smile put her hand near her throat and take a step back -- she was mesmerized. I saw another woman snap a cell phone image of the photo. I saw one guy who looked the aging hippie type. I walked past to see the photo. None other than the clown himself with that foolish smile.
Yes, there's a shrillness that belies an underlying anger. He's going to lose it one of these days when some big issue goes against him and he can't handle what he'll see as personal rejection. Just a matter of time.
Obama has a Stalin or Hitler type of cult following. Scary, isnt it????
I think a more appropriate person to compare the Kenyan Clown's propensity to publicly rant at the proletariat is Fidel Castro.
From the Independent's Weird and wonderful: the facts about Fidel Castro:
LONGEST SPEECH: Castro's holds the Guinness Book of Records title for the longest speech ever delivered at the United Nations: 4 hours and 29 minutes, on Sept. 29, 1960. His longest speech on record in Cuba was 7 hours and 10 minutes in 1986 at the III Communist Party Congress in Havana.
I suspect that in terms of aggregate hours, Obama is well ahead of even Castro over any similar span of time in his career. With the Kenyan Clown's opportunity coming up at the U.N., he should even have a chance at smashing Castro's record in that forum.
Agreed. I can't wait for not one but multiple "I am sick of tired...!" ear-splitting Hillary-screeches from _resident jOker.
argh. “or” -> “and”
There’s TV where I work also and unfortunately its usually on CNN which is either showing a story on him, carrying him live, talking about him, or having an Obama topic in the runner. Its virtually continuous coverage.
People really are ignorant and impressionable. It's a sad day when America cannot take care of herself.
