Obamas love of TV is in keeping with childhood. By his own admission, Obama watched an enormous amount of television while growing up with his TV-loving grandfather in Hawaii. According to Obamas memoir, he watched TV cartoons, reruns, then sitcoms pretty much from the moment he came home until the moment he went to bed at night. His grandfather was a big fan of Johnny Carson, and even after Obama went off to Occidental College, he continued in his grandfathers footsteps. He would often get together with friends to watch Johnny Carsons opening monologue on The Tonight Show.
His TV watching habits continued into adulthood. At different times, he has indicated that he is a fan of Boardwalk Empire, Entourage, Downtown Abbey, Homeland, Mad Men, and The Wire, among others. His TV love even intrudes on his work time. In Jonathan Alters largely glowing portrait of Obama, The Center Holds, Alter reports that during one White House discussion on the possibility of a sleeper terrorist, Obamas reaction was, Sounds like Homeland. Alter also notes that Obama would occasionally close his door and pretend that he was toiling away, but instead he was watching Homeland reruns. Similarly, when White House aides grumbled that Valerie Jarrett was using her closeness to the president to get her way in internal staff disputes, Jarrett replied that she and Obama didnt talk about work so much as about what happened on Downtown Abbey.

He was being ‘boned’ by Reggie.
If the TV was on, it was probably playing a gay porno vid.
Maybe watching some Gay Porn with Reggie =)
Replays of his favorite games of spades with Reggie.
I thought he was playing with his boyfriend
Only if he had a portable TV out on the golf course.
You 2 were on the same wavelength for sure...
playing golf, card games, watching tv, meeting pro athletes, partying movie and pop stars, five-star accommodations when on exotic junkets around the world . . . oh the perks of this Presidency thing are cool.
It was a Tuesday...might have to check the ol’ tv guide.
He was probably watching reruns of the “Reggie does Barak”
Typical white man.
He watched Michelle run on the treadmill and pretended he was at the camel races.
No crap! Like Obama was watching a show about British royalty during Colonialism times? Really ???
He and Reggie put up the “Do Not Disturb” sign.
Michelle was pigging out down stairs.
1) Only the POTUS can authorize a CBA (cross border authority) command for a rescue mission in a foreign nation.
Plus Fact Two:
2) No rescue mission was attempted.
Equals Fact Three:
3) 0bama turned his back on 41 State Dept. and CIA employees refusing to issue a CBA command.
I wonder if she has a drone circling above t.....
He was playing poker when the bin Laden thing went down (since he obviously couldn’t stand to see one of his heroes go, if it’s true that Osama actually was killed). So TV would probably be OK for Benghazi. Probably while stoned.
