    Not to mention huge unemployment and lower and lower household income problems. Better to tackle issues like what shows he Tivo’s each week and what’s his favorite burger.

    The women on “the View” asked him tougher questions than anyone has asked Mitt. Obama actually answered them. As to the whole “middle east thing”, maybe if the U.S. and Israel didn’t keep bombing all those countries, we might do a little better there?

    The sad fact is, actually, the women on the View DID push harder for answers than our “sophisticated” “news media” who owe their checks to their corporate bosses.

    BTW, speaking of foreign affairs, how many “news” agencies still actually have staffs overseas, not just an occasional “traveling reporter”??

    Cheap way to get a campaign infomercial. Makes you look good, too, when you have a friendly audience and an agreeable panel.

    Right, the President is ignoring the rest of the world. What a disingenuous thing to think.

    Stupid meme. Every president appears on these shows. That doesn’t mean that they aren’t constantly being briefed. In this internet age, why on earth does he need to sit in Washington? He doesn’t! Why can’t he take one hour and appear – like all the rest? He can! And if he were GOP, nobody would mind in the least.

    One of your poorest cartoons in my memory, Signe. I usually agree with you, but today isn’t one of these times.
    Obama actually DOES care about the average person and world affairs, unlike his opponent who openly stated that he couldn’t care less about nearly half of America.
    Romney has also made numerous noises calling for making war against several countries, including Iran. He has also castigated Obama for pulling our troops out of Iraq as well. He has also alienated himself from our dearest allies, too.
    I am extremely frightened by the specter of a Romney presidency, as he may well ignite World War III.

    Idiotic post.

    The point ward is that he chose the view over meeting with ANY world leaders at the UN when they are there for the General Assembly Meeting. The first president to do so in over 40 years, Republican or Democratic

    " And if he were GOP, nobody would mind in the least."

    I’d mind. I personally find it in poor taste for any sitting President (regardless of political affiliation) to appear on a talk show.

    Hey wait. I thought wingnuts wanted to do away with the UN.

    And over here we have Mount Bigdeal it was dug for us last night by Republican spin doctors.

    @lonecat I’d like to continue our discussion at some future date. I’m out of the profession now. (Butting your head against a stone wall hurts.) BTW what level do you teach?

    First, I’m not a Republican.

    You sometimes amaze me in your ability to take a general comment and warp it into a politically oriented statement.

    I guess I can see that since O is the subject of the ‘toon. And you are right, sort of. I am slightly right of what was called center years ago, but am also a supporter of some things left but try to be pragmatic about both. I sometimes get my pragmatism stuffed in my ear by me when additional information comes along and forces a change in my attitude toward a subject. (And no, I’m not wishy-washy. It has to be hard data).

    Always good to talk, walrus. I’m a university prof, like DrC. I teach humanities — literature, mostly, but I’m kind of a science/math hobbyist, and I come from a science family. I think it’s really important to support primary and secondary education, because that’s where the real foundation is built. We can add a penthouse, and that’s worthwhile, but it has to rest on a good foundation.
