Default Should Obama Visit American Idol

It looks like the people at American Idol wants Obama to appear on the show. I think it would be unseemly for a sitting president to appear on a TV show, (and yes, I thought it was wrong for him to appear on Leno.)

What do you think?

================================================== =======

The "American Idol" contestants have enough pressure dealing with the critiques of Randy, Kara, Paula and Simon and if "Idol's" harshest judge gets his way, they'll be performing for President Obama.

"We would put out an invitation on a daily basis," Simon Cowell told The Hollywood Reporter about "Idol's" attempt to get the Commander in Chief to appear on the hit FOX show.

"I'd love him to come on, his wife to come on, kids to come on." Simon said of the First Family. "I could only picture now what it would be like if he actually turned up."

Adding, "He's a rock star!"

If I were Obama or one of his advisers I would council him against appearing on American Idol.Too many of his opponents would have a field day connecting the dots to the "name" of the show and his popularity ratings.

No he should not!! He is the President Of The United States not some pop star no matter what the kool-aid drinkers think.
Half of the American Idol audience could not even tell who the Vice President is.

So it could be educational. BTW wasn't Nixon on Laugh in saying "Sock it to me"? I believe he was. And it didn't seem to hurt the country. God you guys have your Miss Manners book out again. He shouldn't give Ipods as a gift or go on a popular show. Gosh you guys are tough on a guy.

Why do we care?

So far as dignity goes.. Are any of you aware that the competitors for Britain's Got Talent will be doing a televised command performance for the Queen of England.

This is a freakin' non-issue that just presents a chance for some to Obama bash.

Oh yeah. I voted yes because "I don't care" was not an option.
