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

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.

His mission was to renew the leg tingles.

I am still waiting for the AnnointedIdiot to find his mojo and walk on water, as prophesized by his gang of idiot-ridden ‘hopey and changey’ Obama-ites........=.=

and is particularly popular with women who are home at its late-morning air time.....with their unemployed husbands and new college graduates who can't find work.

He's desperate.

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

I couldn’t bear to turn it on.
I knew it would be lame.

Yesterday somebody on here termed it an Obama infomercial.

“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!
