Not only that, but there is no way this extreme-Narcissist doesn’t watch anything when he knows that his name is going to be mentioned.

He saw the SNL skit, as well as failing America.

One would have thought during the worst foreign crisis in a while, he could have spent some time working on the crisis. He spends all week campaigning, after all. I’ve looked t his daily schedule MANY days. He often spends the entire day campaigning, or traveling to and from campaign events.

At no point should an American president in a time of war watch football or anything else on TV.

He sure appears to have a lot of spare time in between campaign stops lately.

Hopefully after this election we can, as the Brits say, "free up his future."

We can be certain he wasn’t reading any intelligence briefings, though.

Well, I don’t blame him. Haven’t watched SNL in 25 years.

All he needs is a cardigan, and a photo op in the Rose Garden.

It’s almost like he’s trying to pi$$ us off on purpose.

He’s gotta go in November or America will perish.

Hold your nose....vote for Romney.

I don’t believe that there is a Saturday Midnight NFL Football program(at least not yet) available to conflict with his SNL watching.

Isn’t it nice to know that our LORD BARACK OBAMA is not so distracted by the horrible economy, events in the Middle East, homelessness, distracting Intel briefings, and dead Americans that he has time to watch some football, and jet off to Vegas?

ALL HAIL THE GREAT MESSIAH OBAMA, OUR LORD AND MASTER! (or else)

I don’t blame him. SNL’s never really been the same since Aykroyd and Belushi left.

No doubt about it. Every extravagant vacation, party and golf game is his way of giving us the finger. He’s in the White House yukking it up with Michelle.

The thought comforts me every time I get laid off.

No pro ball but plenty of college games on at that time (west coast games or replays).

You are correct in that he is obsessed with watching anything about him on TV...including FNC which he despises.

Then there are the sports. Dear Leader is OBSESSED and has ESPN on his phone and big screen 24/7.

Nice that he’s engaged.

He made sure he had time for a quick photo-op with the bodies from Libya.

To fool the idiot public.

Then back to his normal useless routine.

Great job, American liberals. Really great.

In your destruction of America, I mean, by electing this clown.

Presidents Reagan, Bush 41 and 43, Nixon, Kennedy, Johnson, Truman, Ford or Eisenhower would’ve been working non-stop on the Middle East emergency. Remember when we had a grown-up in the White House?

Saturday Night Live SUCKS.

It is, hands down, the WORST show on television.

The few times I have turned the channel to watch the opening skit, they always mock Romney or Ryan or some other Republican. NEVER a democrat.

I hope one day they reap what they sow.

And MAD TV was MUCH better that SNL- except for, of course, when the Not Ready for Prime Time Players were on.

NBC’s “news” programs always manage to play a clip of SNL just to remind folks how funny and stupid republicans are. They haven’t had my ratings in years. I am seriously considering dropping TV and try to live by radio and internet. It’s where I spend my time gathering information these days anyway.

That seems bit extreme. We have been at war at least since Oct 2001 (Afghanistan).

To be fair though, what ELSE could he be doing in the Oval Office that would be more consistent with his cognitive abilities?

Football is probably at about the limit of his intellectual depth.... so he does what he is comfortable doing.

He probably digs cartoons on Sunday morning, too.

I saw the opening skit and although it had some corny, unfunny digs at Romney/Ryan, it was actually pretty critical of Obama. Basically, it made Obama look completely hapless.

I watched football on Saturday (USC vs.Stanford). I wish I had watched Saturday Night Live instead.

The embassy is on fire?

Can we talk about this later?

I'm trying to watch some football.
