Are you going to watch the president tonight? Do you feel that he will be saying anything positive?

Only if he's going to announce he's resigning.

Well he didn't,so I guess you didn't watch.I do not understand why he would reign unless he is tired of having to face this mess that Bush left him.But,he came in knowing about this mess and has not complained.

You missed him telling how he was working on issues.And you missed him telling a reporter the other day why he did not have an answer for him then because he waits till he knows what he['s talking about.Which I have never seen him pretend he knows something and answers their question just to please them.

I'm sick and tired of Obama going on television every time things aren't exactly going his way or when his pole numbers start going down. NO I'm not going to watch him!

Gee,he has only been on a couple of times.If he didn't come on then you would be complaining that he didn't keep us informed.

You don't know me very well and a couple of times is two times too many.

So I watched the press conference. I ahev to give judos to the press core, only one REALLy soft ball question and it was kind of a lame one. With all issues we have and all the turmoil in washington, this one reporter asks Obama how much race has come up in the lat 60 days? Was she for REAL? CRIPE Anyway, though there were some questions i hoped would be asked actually asked, the answers seemed to be laughing. the only thing I think I agrea with this man on is stemscell research and it was probably one of the few he ansered concisly enough. the other thing that struck me was he jsut does not seem to understand the anger in this country right now or where it is directed. Well, Mr. Obamam let me tell you where it is directed, it is direceted at cons like the AIG crew, but FAR MORE, it is directed atr a congress and executive branch gone obscenely out of control and out of constitutional bounds. As for trusting the government with more power? Does he HONESTLY BELIEVE that BS he was trying to sell us about us trusting them with power? What the heck does he think these protests are about? The aren't screaming "YES! Give the government more power!" Mr. President whjat we want is what has been ebbed away at slowly the last few adminsitrations, a truly constitutional government.

you mean lacking, right? I noticed that, too. The usual, lets try to get to save and well rehearsed territory as quickly as possible, as long as it remotely relates. I agree with that he doesn't understand how upset people are in general. Maybe he really just watches the media that applauds him and doesn't report negative stuff.

ohhh....i cant wait to see the Washington elite press corp throw softball after softball, as President Obama reads of the teleprompter the scripted answer him and his team have for each question they know that will be asked. It is almost like watching a dancing with the stars, no Joe the Plumber bomb type questions tonight. What would be interesting to see if a reporter throws his shoe!!!

Probably so.Carter was the worse president we have had.But,Bush did not help it,he mad it worse.Basically it all started with him cheating at the begining by having a recount of the votes in the state his brother was govenor in.Wow,what a coincidence!Then the next coincidence is that one of his cousin's went down there to help count.Hmmmmmmmmmmm.

Probably not. He should stop trying to be a celebrity and do something better to help the country, no wait maybe it is better for him to spend his time as a celebrity and do nothing which would probably help the country more.

Going on Leno for one, making such a deal over his basketball picks when he should have been working for another. He just really seems to want to put himself in the limelight all the time.

No way. I am not going to watch him and we did not. In fact, since he decides to have these presidential talks on Tuesday, I thought of a way of driving him crazy. Make him watch all the CBS shows that fall on Tuesdays. I bet when someone turns on NCIS and The Mentalist, he says "no! No! Not again!" Aiint I a meanie?

I watch NCIS and The Mentalist too.And they were on after.If you notice the people that don't watch him are the ones that don't like him and don't really know whats going on.

Well I did a lot of investigation on the internet, about what he stood for and who he choose for his cabinet, mostly pro abortion people and pro same gender approving people. I sort of love babies, and cannot see anyone who wants Americans to pay for killing unborn babies overseas in those poor countries. And I liked Bush, but did not watch him when he made his speeches. I usually just go and read about it on the internet, and not just the Liberal newspapers, but the other side like the Christian online newspapers as well as the information elsewhere (not the blogs) given by the professional press and the government press to get the idea - you know that kind most skip over.

I am not one to watch politicians on TV. I'll probably read about them in Newsweek, or listen to reports on the BBC World Service in the evening. The BBC is good at keeping up with American politics, even though it's a British station. I'd rather just hear the snippets on the radio, than spend all that time watching them on TV.
