President Obama On “The View” – “I told folks I’m just supposed to be eye candy here for you guys.”

Monday, President Obama, whose schedule has been notoriously full – so full he cannot find the time to meet with world leaders while in New York – found the time to speak with the ladies at “The View.”

With Americans struggling to find or keep jobs, stagnant or dropping wages, increasing gas and food prices, the middle east in absolute turmoil, the recent shocking rape and death of an American Ambassador (first time since 1979), the worst economy recovery since World War II, long-term unemployment the worst since the 1930’s, a national debt at $16 trillion (increased $5 trillion under President Obama) … it will be interesting to see how he addresses these issues, if at all.

We understand the light humor President Obama employs, such as saying he is supposed to “be eye candy” while on “The View” (airs at 11:00). He is rather personally likable. But, what is more important? Meeting with world leaders in New York or dishing it with the ladies in New York?
