Obama on “The View”: “I’ve been told I’m just eye candy here”

posted at 9:30 pm on September 24, 2012 by Allahpundit

I don’t want to raise expectations, but the most irritating Obama interview ever could be a mere 14 hours away.

When host and veteran journalist Barbara Walters kidded Michelle Obama about bringing the president as her “date,” Obama quipped, “I’ve been told I’m just eye candy here.”…

During the show, the Obamas joked about their upcoming anniversary and presented the hosts with White House cloth napkins, golf balls, candy and bottles of Obama’s home-brewed beer. The couple’s 20th anniversary will fall on the day of the first presidential debate, Oct. 3.

“Our first wedding anniversary, I totally forgot,” Michelle dead-panned.

The president jokingly responded: “Cold.”

That’s from Reuters, which notes that the appearance was “squeezed in” before his UN obligations. True enough, if you exclude “meeting with foreign leaders” from his obligations; otherwise the “View” taping is more of an “in lieu of” thing. As for that “bump in the road” in Benghazi, good news: Slowly but surely, he’s coming around to the realization that the consulate attack that involved 50-100 masked men using heavy weapons and military tactics probably wasn’t a spontaneous protest that got a little out of hand.

President Obama continued the shift in his administration’s language in explaining the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, saying Monday in a taping of “The View” that the assault that killed the U.S. ambassador and three others “wasn’t just a mob action.”…

“There’s no doubt” that the assault “wasn’t just a mob action” but a sign of extremism in nations lacking stability,” Obama said in the taping of the ABC show “The View.” “What’s been interesting, just this past week, there were these massive protests against these extremists militias that are suspected, maybe, of having been involved in this attack.”

The latest on why that more-than-a-mob-action was so successful comes from CNN, reporting tonight that because the consulate was a temporary facility it was subject to waivers that permitted fewer guards and general security measures. They did upgrade security a bit in the last few months, but not with measures designed to repel an attack by a militia. Because who could have anticipated that a militia might attack a U.S. consulate in … war-torn Libya, where jihadist militias have owned the streets for more than a year?

Via News Busters, here’s Krauthammer imagining today’s news in an alternate universe where the media is fair.

“Our first wedding anniversary, I totally forgot,” Michelle dead-panned.

That’s actually a very common reaction to severe trauma – the blackout.

It’s commonly reported by victims of gang-rapes – they can’t remember where they were let alone who the perps were.

More generally people who are genuinely terrified – say someone who had a gun shoved down their throat.

All details are deleted.

There are lots of theories about this. It’s part chemical (the adrenal dump) and part psychological self defense.

I don’t know if this has made the headlines, but it was too good not to share:

Complaints Mount Against Michelle Obama’s New Lunch Menu

In Wisconsin, high school athletes are complaining about not getting enough to eat each day, due to the skimpy new school lunch menu mandated by the United States Department of Agriculture and First Lady Michelle Obama.

The story we published earlier this week on that subject is unfortunately not unique. Students across the country are complaining about the new school lunch regulations….

“I know a lot of my friends who are just drinking a jug of milk for their lunch. And they are not getting a proper meal,” middle school student Samantha Gortmaker told Keloland.com.

Despite the fact that the new regulations have increased the cost of a lunch 20 to 25 cents per plate, it’s not pleasing students.

Some are throwing away their vegetables while others are adapting to the rules by becoming industrious. In New Bedford, Massachusetts, students have created a black market – for chocolate syrup. The kiddie capitalists are smuggling in bottles of it and selling it by the squeeze….

One government official tried to put the blame on the students.

“One thing I think we need to keep in mind as kids say they’re still hungry is that many children aren’t used to eating fruits and vegetables at home, much less at school. So it’s a change in what they are eating. If they are still hungry, it’s that they are not eating all the food that’s being offered,” USDA Deputy Undersecretary Janey Thornton was quoted as saying.

I guess it’s one way to teach capitalism in the schools–in MA, no less!

Don’t worry. She wasn’t “toiling” all that much.

Valerie Jarrett. These jobs were created specifically for Michelle’s “unique” talents (i.e. being married to up-and-coming Barack Obama). IOW, those high salaries Michelle “earned” were basically favors/payoffs to Obama.

My thoughts have been exactly. I was about to gag when I read the Vogue article re. her in 2008. She claimed she wanted to serve the public. She did not want to serve the public. She simply could not hang in the private law practicing world where she first had to pay her due by getting evidences, requesting documents, reading documents then report to a real practicing lawyer or two in the firm. Her I-am-a-Princeton-grad ego could not take that. (This is typical a mentality of most of the AA / third world academic successes. Obama sr had the same problem hence could not do much in Kenya and drank himself to death.) She fancied herself going right away after graduation to argue in court, handling important and newsworthy cases. She also went to Jarret because she reckoned after the time at Sidley that she must go hustling to get client herself and would not have to do so in public/non profit sector. Private lawyers do serve the public; it’s called pro-bono work.

These two a very perfectly matched a pair. Both are egoistic and lazy. Perhaps they made a pact: she’d earn bread (through sucking up to VJ) while he pays political dues through community organizing (though I have no doubt he received loads of freebies — hair cuts, tailored suits, meals, etc — from organizing community) as per VJ and co’s instruction.

Whatever was the deals for them, these two got picked and molded, due to their catching life story/union. Qin Huang Di’s father would have envied their molders.

..a mere bagatelle! The Chicago Jesus is a freaking miracle worker! He managed to shoe-horn 18,000 people into a 5,000 seat venue in Milwaukee AND STILL HAVE EMPTY SEATS LEFT OVER!

True enough, if you exclude “meeting with foreign leaders” from his obligations; otherwise the “View” taping is more of an “in lieu of” thing.

“Media bias?!” I ask incredulously………./s

He’s eye candy much the same way Urkel is.

Yeah, must have been a huge optical illusion (called projection) or something….

I’m amazed that these cackling hens are still on the air.

On the View, Quasimodo is eye candy!

He can afford to be so cavalier because the media is protecting him. He doesn’t have to endure any of the scrutiny that, say, a pro-American President would have to endure.

More like eye cancer!

“Just a bump in the road” was what he said. What he was thinking was more of, “Just a little off the fairway on the ninth. We’ve still got nine more holes.”

In all seriousness, imagine how painful it must be to constantly promote (while never proving) how smart you are, and suddenly you have to compete with an actual smart person.

Or to be told for the last few years how handsome you are, and now have to compete with an actual handsome person.

And he’s the same guy as the smart person.

That would have to suck. Obama wouldn’t fish for the compliment otherwise. It’s his own fault for stoking that shallow furnace, but still. God help the republic because he’ll show us a unique form of crazy if he loses in November.

Why do we have to tune in to the View to get information from our Commander in Chief on what happened in Libya?

Does anyone else find this the least bit disconcerting?

Additionally, we are getting more information from our media than we are from our own government on what happened over there. The media has consistently blown holes in the administration’s version(s) of events.

Can you ever remember another time in history that our government and intelligence community did not lead during an international crisis? How on Earth does the media have more knowledge about what is going on in the Middle East then our own intelligence community?

I truly hate this man.

“I’ve been told I’m just eye candy here.”

Eeeeewwwww Gross. If I want eye candy I’ll watch 300.

Obama thinks he’s eye candy? Did he bring his mirror on the stage with him, so that his only admirer can enjoy his image?
