Obie just can’t stand to be away from the cameras for more than a day.

Good thing I don’t watch “Idol.”

Obama? American Idol?

Yeah. I can totally see that.

Rename the show to: American’s Idol.

Glad I NEVER watched this crap.

Excerpt:

This year’s beneficiaries include Children’s Health Fund, Feeding America, Malaria No More, Save the Children’s U.S. Programs and the United Nations Foundation.


Heck just give moms more abortions. Right, Obama?

If AI wants to “give back” they could pay to have the Obozo’s relocated to France.

“One more reason not to watch.”

When I heard the emasculating pervert was going to be on the show this year I struck an agreement with the wife that we wouldn’t watch it. Even though she has always enjoyed the show she has stuck to our agreement. We haven’t missed a thing we couldn’t do without!

Yes, he and his “barrel@ss” wife thought the title of the show was inline with his propaganda agenda.

This is good news!

CLEARLY, If the president of the United States has enough spare time to appear on a meaningless, insipid, “reality” tv show, it means the overwhelming majority of the most critical, dangerous and important national and international issues our nation faced have been successfully resolved to the benefit of the United States...

...doesn’t it?

Good things come in twos on AI — Kelly and Carrie, or to ask Mrs C-4, Clay and more Clay. The Empty Suit and Michelle don’t qualify, though.

OMGoodness...from the headline at first I thought Barack and Michelle were gonna sing or dance or something! Wouldn't put it past this couple who,while in the W.H., seem to be willing to do anything that is tasteless and tacky. You know...giving it that “common touch.” Common, all right, more like skid row meets nouveau riche

It would be nice if Zero spent a season on Survivor since the country would be better off with an empty seat than Zero.

You’d think with 27 personal assistants, she could find at least one stand-in, her having such a busy schedule and all. BTW-does it ever occur to her that fat kids need self-esteem, too?

George and Laura appeared on “Idol Gives Back” every year too. This is just the standard, ‘please give to this worthy cause’ plea. I’ll change channels for the couple of minutes his face disgraces my screen.

Exactly. People are acting like this is some horrible development. it is a charity episode that President Bush and Laura appeared on each of the last 2 seasons, so Obambi and Shamuchelle appearing is no big deal.

Simon Cowell: Worst performance ever. I have no idea how you got this far, but you'll not advance to the second term. Thumbs down.

This would be a great chance for someone who can do video production to take some of Simon's best insults and splice together Obama standing there and having to take it.

Point taken, but Bush wasn’t turning my beloved country into a 3rd-world socio-communist toilet, and in turn making me despise his every move...indeed his very existence.

Difference is that the Bush's didn't accept every tv show known to man because they loved themselves so much...therefore, the reaction you are seeing right now. Hard to believe based on Obama's love for himself and his "celebrity-ness" that he's doing this out of the goodness of his heart.
