President returning to Sunday talk show for the first time in three years

By Amie Parnes - 12/29/12 10:19 AM ET

President Obama will appear on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday morning in his first appearance on the news program since 2009, the network has announced.

The Obama interview comes hours before the so-called "fiscal cliff" deadline. Obama has called on Congress in recent days to pass legislation that would prevent income taxes from rising and spending cuts from taking effect.

In his radio address on Saturday, Obama said the recovering economy "can't afford a politically self-inflicted wound," and urged Congress to immediately pass legislation.

Obama will be interviewed by the show's moderator, David Gregory, who was supposed to be on vacation after he found himself at the center of an investigation by the Washington Metropolitan Police Department.

The investigation began after Gregory revealed what appeared to be a high-capacity gun magazine, which is illegal in D.C., on the set during last Sunday's show during an interview with the National Rifle Association's Wayne LaPierre.

Wow, Dear Leader is going on TV and taking time off golf, shooting hoops with his homies, and riding his sissy girl bike in Hawaii! What a dedicated and inspiring leader Barry is.

Wow. I am underwhelmed. Another opportunity for the Won to blame Republicans for everything that has ever gone badly in this country. I think I will be trimming my toenails. That will be much more interesting.

Boehner and McConnell are hopeless creatures void of any responsible representation and political calculation.

Marxists democrats are that way by default on lack of responsible representation (They are masters at political calculation though), but when you lie and proclaim you have principles, yet deal them away, you are the equivalent of Benedict Arnold.

And yes, both are on topic in this thread because Obummer is going to hammer away on them during the show.

He’s not running any more. Why is he doing this? He knows if they don’t get that new credit card, the old company will be calling in the debt, that’s why. And, he don’t wanna be blamed for it. He’d rather have some lame-ass fool in the media compare him to Abraham Lincoln.

Why is he doing this? To rub it in our faces and absolve Gregory. I'd bet it was 0bama that gave the go-ahead for Gregory in the 1st place. Notice the resemblance?

Another of the lies The One and his many media sycophants are peddling. Are we to believe them or our lying eyes?

“In his radio address on Saturday, Obama said the recovering economy “can’t afford a politically self-inflicted wound,” and urged Congress to immediately pass legislation.”

What “recovering economy”?

This is the beginning of his relentless attacks on Republicans/Conservatives/Tea Partiers/Gun Owners/Heterosexuals/Evangelical White Christians/Talk Radio/Rural Voters/Constitutionalists/Capitalists

and I’m sure a few more demographic groups I’ve not identified.

And I mean it will be a relentless, non-stop, parade of LIES that will be repeated ad nauseum by his butt-licking press.

Gird your loins...the onslaught is about to begin anew.
