It seems only fair that Obama thinks Kimmel's a comedian, seeing as Kimmel thinks Obama is presidential.

Will the people who were getting ready to call Obama going on a talk show in the midst of a pair of crises a scandal be outraged that President Oblahman has now cancelled?

Meh there are always international crises.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's considered an impeachable offense.

Absolutely. In this mornings meeting at Fox News the producers will be discussing ways to spin this in the most negative light possible.

The important thing is he frees up extra time for another fundraiser.

Apparently, it's "great, why didn't he cancel the West Coast fundraisers as well?  There's things going on it the world that don't directly involve us!  See, this is why you need to send us money instead."

Isn't it nice when people make it blatantly clear they aren't equipped to participate in reality-based discussions? :D


I wouldn't say 'nice', but yeah, no use talking to them.

Public perception. Only dickhead political junkies pay attention to fundraisers. But a talk show appearance is something that the general public does notice. Because it actually has some impact on their lives. And really, where would you rather he be fundraising, LA or Wall Street? Last time I checked, Hollywood never assraped the global economy, then demanded to be paid for it.

That is too good.  I wouldn't be surprised to see that quote word for word on air.

This reminds me of when a Farker posted a TF discussion thread about being offered a job with the RNC.  Stoparrestingme stopped posting for a while after that and all I could do is wonder how long until his word searches were spotted in some politicians speeches.  It would be much harder to identify audibly when the search words were split between different words in a sentence.

Romney tried to teach them to write one speech and ignore the possibility of losing.

Ah yes, Fox News was complaining Obama has now spent more time fundraising than Bush. Of course Bush decided vacations were more important than doing a part of his job by raising funds for his party. Also by the end of the Bush presidency no one wanted anything to do with him and major candidates were doing their best to distance themselves.

It means he doesn't want to answer any of Kimmels tough questions about Obama's numerous scandals.

I, for one, was looking forward to obama's comedy skit.

/I've enjoyed the comedy he's provided so far. And the jokes on YOU!

I masturbated during.

But seriously. Is everyone on the planet supposed to be all somber and reflective every time people die? For how long?
Look at global mortality rates, millions dies every day. Are we supposed to spend our lives curled up in a corner crying into a pillow?
 
2014-07-23 09:44:09 AM  
Of course the real victim here is Matt Damon, who will see his name drop at the end of the show replaced with President Obama's.

Is this because Jimmy Kimmel is White? Friends with Conservative Icon Adam Carolla? Straight? Obama has cancelled exactly zero appearances with Rachel Maddow and Al Sharpton!

And the American Family Association said that the plane being shot down was a gift from God because of all the newly dead AIDS researchers.

But do go on about how you care so much about the people on this flight.

It's not fair that only the Democrats get to bring in obscene amounts of money to help them run for high political offices, while the poor Repubs are out on the streets with a shine box. No wonder they're angry all the time.

Bears repeating.  What has gotten us to this point is the inability for people to see others enjoying themselves, anyone who doesn't feel and see exactly as they do is a terrible person.

I think the ability to be self-aware is being slowly leeched from the face of humanity.
