The Baltimore Sun ^ | June 2, 2010 | David Zurawik

To the growing chorus of critics wondering what President Barack Obama was ultimately going to do about the BP oil spill here's one answer: He's going to go on TV in prime time and talk about it.

CNN is promoting President Obama's interview that will air Thursday night at 9 on "Larry King Live." It is part of King's big week of 25th anniversary interviews -- along with the likes of Lady Gaga

Resorting to a Larry King interview to explain your ineptitude is like hanging a pork chop around your neck so the family dog will pay attention to you.

Oh, please! What an empty suit! Maybe Larry will get to him to admit, what we already know, about his gay-ness.

This is ridiculous. Let Larry the softball give the (lousy) One all the time he needs to garner sympathy, continue to blame his predecessor, tell all “what a good boy am I, and hope to boost failing CNN ratings. E%$# them both.

This is how The Won deals with an issue of major national importance?

With an interview by a fawning sycophant, a mewling myrmidon?

What next? Oprah?

Hey Short Change, how about a real press conference dedicated to the spill? That’s what a grown-up President would do.

Really, Larry King? I’d laugh if I weren’t so damn mad.

Hey Larry. Ask him about the EPA and the National Contingency Plan for large oil spills and why it wasn't acted upon. Oh, and while you're at it, ask him why he hasn't given approval to Gov. Jindal to build the barrier islands.

Obama is brave to go on King's show; this promises to be a tough grilling by a hard-nosed bull dog of a reporter.

Not!!

Bad news for Larry. He can’t afford to have his ratings go down any lower.

Yep, showing up on Larry King will go a long way to repair the political damage of Obama’s mishandling of the Gulf oil ooze. He still thinks he can talk his way out of anything.

Unbelievable. When the going gets tough, the ‘bama gets talking. He must think the U.S. presidency is just one big media campaign. He truly holds America and Americans in abject contempt.

Yah know Larry...I thought that tar balls would feel like boogers but they're more like deer turds and they smell more like deer turds, too.

I would guess that if it comes down to a close race....Sarah Palin knows more about deer turds than myself.

He’ll do the same thing with this situation as he does with every other. Devote a talk or speech to it and hope the public loses interest after a few days.

One empty suit interviewing another.

Hey Larry, here’s your chance to redeem yourself before you die ...prove you’re not a gutless little weasel hypocrite ...ask B.O. to give you the details on this:

Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.

This is just too funny. The best part is they (the administration) do not even understand why it is funny.

They would have gained more points by going on one of Fox’s interview show and taking hard questions, rather then the softballs Larry King is going to toss.

What next, Sesame Street with Big Bird doing the interview?

I trust Larry will focus in on how James Cameron is progressing with his solution to the oil leak.

I guess Larry King gets him because Barbara Walters is recovering from heart surgery, and so is unavailable to ask him “if EPIC FAIL were a Tree, what kind of Tree would it be?”
