I see your point, but I still say no.

Has the Treas. Dept. been staffed yet?? Maybe we'd like to see him doing the JOB before he starts basking in the glory.

How about full staffing?? Is it too much ask of an excutive that he actually do his job? Maybe he's not aware that in his position he needs to make sure that having the right people in place should be his #1 priority. An experienced executive knows that your staff is the people who make your job work. Right now, the Pres. is showing his inexperience in executive matters. He's wallowing in the spotlight, but he isn't doing THE JOB. He was elected to do THE JOB, not be walking PR man's wet-dream.

He just can't win. First people say he is doing too much. Then he is not doing enough. Iguess that means he has it about right. HeyBTW, Look at all the money treasury is saving in reqal dollars. But you think it would be better to create jobs. Good thinking. More government employees is just what we need. Good thinking.
First redd is supporting unions and teachers and hedge funds. Now you want more government spending. Amazing.

I thought his appearance on Leno was borderline inappropriate. A talk show is a far cry from "reality" show like American Idol. I do NOT think he should be going on American Idol.

Even my wife (Who voted for Obama - I did NOT) thought it was weird that he was on Leno. I watched it, and she didn't. I'm glad I did though, I got to see the part where he made an insensitive comment about special olympics. LOL. It was actually kind of a funny joke.

This is a freakin' non-issue that just presents a chance for some to Obama bash.
Performers doing a show for the president is one thing. The prez appearing on a cheesy reality show is another.

I get that the world has changed, Palin and McCain were on the talk show circuits and SNL etc. Obama on Leno was one thing, but American Idol is inappropriate for the president to appear on.

Maybe the office of the president could be owned by Simon Cowell's recording company and the next president could be chosen by a panel of three celebrities high on prescription painkillers...

First, I do my didlly-damned utmost to avoid reality shows ESPECIALLY American Idol.
Second, can he sing? Or is he going to appear with Ellen and do the Obama dance?
I love Ellen. She's so fun.
