Conservatives express disgust after Obama calls himself eye candy on 'The View'
the examiner ^ | 9/25/2012 | BY: JOE NEWBY

Posted on 09/26/2012 3:28:05 AM PDT by tobyhill

On Monday's taping of ABC's "The View," President Obama said he was just "eye candy" after Barbara Walters kidded Michelle Obama about bringing him as her "date," Reuters reported.

"I've been told I'm just eye candy here," he said.

The program is set to air on Tuesday, Reuters added, noting that it "marks the first time the Obamas have appeared together on the one-hour show, which features four female hosts, including Hollywood icon Whoopi Goldberg, and is popular with middle-income women voters."

A post at Twitchy called his statement "false" and "sexist," and observed that conservatives on Twitter expressed their disgust.

"Hint... anyone is eye-candy sitting next to Joy (Behar) and Whoopi," tweeted one person.

"Full of c**p, or full of himself?" another asked.

When the show airs I think I’ll clean the toilets instead of watching, might be more exciting.

Well, it implies that women aren't concerned about the issues, they just like admiring the beautiful empty chair.

""....I'm just eye candy here," he said."

"Mmmm, I feel so pretty today...."

President "Eye Candy"


Nothing like appearing on a hard-hitting show
and answering tough questions.

Just to show how idiotic the people on "The View" are, here's an illustrative clip:
Stop Black Suffrage! They've suffraged enough!

I am still distracted by a picture that Fox News showed of them on the view last night that you could have driven a semi-truck thru the seperation of Obama and Michelle on the couch. Body language was unmistakable, they were not a “happy couple”.

Oh, PLEASE! Not everything any public entity utters is news!

Obama saying this on "The View" is both funny and coy. Although, it would have been hilarious if Biden had said it!

He is so gay.

The video clip they showed on Fox of the Worst Couple and Baba Wawa made me wonder why Michelle wore a green dress to sit on the green couch. She appeared to be in camouflage.

Just another load of crap from the megalomaniac. I cannot believe that there are so many duped and stupid people that will vote for this piece of trash.

Agree...and the hairdo and dress was so off base. It looked like she borrowed it from “Gone With the Wind” trying to look “middle American” and not too slinky.

The View. I fail to see why women watch it.

Baba Wawa a self confessed adultress who “worked” her way up and got Jungle fever.
Whoppi Killer of 7 fetus’s
Joy Behar who calls herself a comedian and is about as funny as a toothache,
and some woman no one ever heard of who calls herself a conservative.

Obama is avoiding any real interviews and instead going on these entertainment shows where he gets softballs and jokes around.

His campaign should be taunting the MSM over this, like the Sunday show hosts, everywhere Romney interviews, over Obama avoiding them.

Like “When is P Obama coming on your show? Is he too busy doing Letterman and The View to give you an interview?”

Obama was saying that for all the old white guys who watch the view for the chicks. He wants to be their twinkie.

This administration is so embarrassing! But the Republicans aren't all that much better. I don't know who the first President was to appear on late night comedy shows but it's been downhill since then. I don't want a funny man for a President. How can the rest of the world take the USA seriously when the President appears on shows like Letterman, Leno and The View, undoubtedly the most vacuous show on television. The whole thing make me gag.

He can’t run on his record.

"I've been told I'm just eye candy here," he said"

Not beyond the realm of possibility he was told this by one of the male stagehands at "The View".

I respect the enemy in that they’re not afraid to stand up for what they believe in - even though it’s so obviously demented, at least they’re willing to fight for it.

Unlike some folks out here - on another thread, at the moment, opining about how Canada is looking pretty good these days and wondering about expatriation.
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2936502/posts?page=11#11

I pity the enemy too, for being so demented and failing to realize the hell and destruction they’re trying to bring about.

Contempt is probably a better word...for those who would run away, and for those who set this thing loose on the country...

This guy is so delusional. I think it has reached the level where he needs to seek professional help.

He sees himself as uniquely qualified to be doing what he is. And it seems as if he has developed a god complex to a certain degree.

This guy has a hard enough time paying attention to folks who agree with him, let alone those who don’t.

He doesn’t need to talk to Netanyahu, because he thinks he already knows all there is to know.

He sees the U. S. as colonial. He thinks Israel was more or less colonial, in that he thinks they stole the land on which Israel exists.

If he’s intent on eliminating the impact of the United States on world affairs, and he is, just think what his intent for Israel is.

Folks, those of you who don’t want the United States engaged in wars anymore. Those who want us to bring everyone home and just worry about our own shores from here on out.

THIS is what that looks like.

When we’re out of Afghanistan, you will have exactly what you wanted. And but for the grace of God, Obama will be the person that made it all possible.

You got that right, D.

And when there’s no one there to stop the Jihadis from assembling, from regrouping, recruiting, and training, and not only our cities but our suburbs start exploding, well... all that “Hope and Change” will be nothing more than “Obama’s chickens coming home to roost.”

To a large degree. He also cannot take any criticism of any kind. A truly sick man.
