Obama seeks his "mojo" on daytime TV's "The View"
Reuters ^ | 7/29/10 | Patricia Zengerle

Posted on 07/29/2010 12:42:29 PM PDT by Kartographer

President Barack Obama tried to revive his common touch on Thursday with a mainly light-hearted appearance on daytime television where five women hosts grilled him about his Blackberry, Lindsay Lohan and the Afghan war.

His appearance was the first by a sitting U.S. president on a daytime talk show. It allowed Obama to appeal directly to a targeted audience as he fights flagging poll numbers while he and his fellow Democrats try to avoid big losses in the November congressional election.

"The View" typically draws 3-4 million viewers and is particularly popular with women who are home at its late-morning air time.

His 'MOJO"? Me thinks some one has watched Austin Powers one to many times!

"So I started to work my mojo, to counter their mojo; we got cross-mojulation, and their heads started exploding."

So he is appealing to a part of his base: Ditzy brain-dead soccer/tennis/minivan moms.

“Obama tried to revive his common touch”

Common touch? The man’s excesses would make Henry VIII blush.

I get that he is trying repolish his numbers with women, my only question is, how many real women actually watch this show? Outside of welfare recipients and news reporters, who is at home with nothing to do than watch a coven of satanic hens peck at some meal?

"grilled him"?

Oh, puhleeze. They were lining up to spoon with him. And that includes you too, Elizabeth H.; if you had any pride, you would have called in sick that day. I know I would; I can't stand to be within 100 miles of that Muslim Bastard.

If he's looking for "sagging support" (which he isn't), he needs to go on Beck, Limbaugh, Hannity, et al.

But we all know that's not going to happen. As a narcissist, he's going to go where he get's stroked the most, and that would be a bunch of liberal women...the View.

There are many questions he doesn't want asked of him, so he has to be in control of the gathering before he will appear and subject himself to questioning.

I'm hoping that one day he'll have to make an appearance and he will have to answer all the questions...like, in Federal court, for instance.

He was just one more rancid liberal pu**y on a stage full of them... except for one lonely little Conservative girl.

“I know I would; I can’t stand to be within 100 miles of that Muslim Bastard.”

Ahem...you left out “lying, usurping, duplicitous” in front of “Muslim bastard”. Let’s tighten up on this name calling...if we are going to get quoted by the DUmmies, we want to get it right...didn’t you subscribe to the rightwing-o list?

It must have been a real love fest with Behar...oh doctah...

As Rush said, the Obamaloon brought up the estrogen level of the program.

What a complete wimpy noodle.

Right—just trying to hold on to his “base.” I’m embarrassed that a president would demean the dignity of the office by appearing on such a program.....

Elizabeth whimped out. Coward!
She's pretty good at pointing out the Marxist/Muslim's short
comings ordinarily, but too big a coward to say it to his face!

“stay at home moms and a lot of northeast yentas watch The View.”

Stay at home Moms are far to committed to raising their children to have time to waste watching this drivel.

Stay-at-home-lazy welfare-cheats are the ones watching the view.

Well, that's a first. The MSM managed to put “light-hearted appearance” and “Afghan War” in a description of the same event. But, hey, a “light-hearted” look at WWII worked for The Producers!

You really have to wonder whose idea that was, and who the sycophants were whole told him it was a good idea to go on that show.

"Mojo" is a bag of magical charms and animal parts, a vestige of African pagan religious practice. He must be going back to his roots. Wonder what his Islamic bosses would have to say about that?

Wrong-headed comment.

As a ditzy minivan-driving soccer mom with lots of similar-minded friends, we are NOT a part of Barry0’s base.

You knoweth not that of which you post.

If you know you don’t like Barry0, then by definition you can’t be ditzy. Not completely anyway.

This the most un-dignified, classless, president in history. I want to puke everytime I seee him in the oval office with his feet on such an historic desk. He is a slug.

Elizabeth hugged him and looked thrilled just like Maude Behar and the gang. Rush sent Maude some knee pads and hoped she received them in time for the show.
But Elizabeth seems to have lost her desire to be the lone Conservative that just MIGHT try to counter the Liberal jibberish coming from the other slobbering Yentas.
Her voice was always meek but now it’s silent. Pathetic.
Then she defended MO’s massively expensive trip to Spain on Hannity tonight, saying she has no problem about her spending time with her daughter!

I didn’t/couldn’t watch it. I thought he was supposed to be president of all the people. Going on liberal partisan programs like “The View” alienates half the people in the country. If he was in the midst of the 2012 campaign, I could somewhat understand why he would want to go on there. I guess he is just in constant campaign mode. This from the most divisive president in my memory....
