As Obama Accepts Offers,
Late-Night Television Longs

The week after the first presidential debate, with Mitt Romney riding a surge in the polls, Lorne Michaels believed he was close to achieving one of the perennial objectives of an election year for the celebrated television show he created and still produces, “Saturday Night Live.” Landing a presidential nominee as a guest. The excitement at the show about a possible walk-on by Mr. Romney was tangible. But sometime that Friday, interest from the Romney camp cooled; the Republican candidate did not follow the precedent set in other recent presidential races by John McCain and George W. Bush

The fools at the NYT cannot figure out why Romney won't go on Letterman? Letterman is a nasty, foul left wing nutjob. Leno is different, but SNL should also go pound sand.

Ain't no place low enough that Obama wouldn't enter.

The nytimes won't ask the relevant question of why obama ducks interviews and press conferences. Instead they seek to legitimize fluff TV interviews Obama does where he entertains scripted softballs from supporters like Jon stewart and mtv lapdogs. The nytimes has no credibility.

I am tickled pink that Governor Romney won't do those stupid shows. We don't need our leaders 'closer to the people' we need them working their tail off for the American people.

It just diminishes the stature of the man and the office.

#8 nailed it. Obama won't go to serious venues. The breezy leftism of the fluff stuff is his bread and butter.

From the article, “Not exactly sure what the problem is,” said Rob Burnett, Mr. Letterman’s executive producer.

This the same Letterman who slimed Bristol and Willow Palin?

Pauline Kael Syndrome of a sort. They see themselves as erudite and sophisticated, not as biased and vindictive.

Read the article above by Michael Ladeen at PJ Medea. He asks why is Obama so vulgar and mean. Obama has no dignity. He and Biden degrade the country and the office of the presidency with their vulgar and undignified comments. That's exactly what SNL, Letterman, et al, do so that is where Obama belongs. Romney is a gentleman, a good and dignified man and he doesn't need to go slumming with cretins of late-night television.

Huge thank you to Mitt Romney for not going on these entertainment shows! It will be so good to have dignity and respect for the Presidency restored! We need a leader who understands the honor of the charge with which he is entrusted, elevates it above himself, and fills the proper role of President and Commander in Chief of our military.

The Governor most likely wants to spend his time with real people, not the Hollywood phonies (or O'Reilly for that matter) who simply want to increase ratings. In the case of the late-nighters, their only motive is to undermine the Governor's election bid. Stay away, Mitt.

What #19 said. Lorne Michaels is yesterdays' "star" producer when SNL was funny about 40 years ago. Not anymore. He and his crew of happy-leftist-idiots wore out their welcome years ago. They entertain each other, no one else cares. Mitt Romney is better than that.

A good rule of thumb for your personal, business, and I suppose political, life is, never attend an event where you know you are unwelcome, even if invited. Especially if you are invited. Rarely does anything good come from exposing yourself to that kind of hostility. Politely decline the invitation and move on to more productive pursuits.

Smart move. They only want to make you look like a fool. Stay above the "common man" trap. The job opening is not for the "common man." It is for an "man of the people," and most people wouldn't get anywhere near that stupid TV show.

Why do network B-listers when Bill Maher is edgier and doesn't need a seven second delay... you know, in case future president Romney decides to display his hipness by reciting Jay-Z rap lines?

Ann and Mitt went on The View to continue destroying Obama's myths about them... the job he started in the first debate.

I doubt President Romney will find much time amidst serious work to place the presidency on the level of a Snookie appearance.

Letterman has mocked and tried to make Romney into a laughing stock, so different from his treatment of Obama. It would be stupid for Romney to go on his show. Besides, it is not presidential to make rounds of these silly shows.

Same with Leno. Like Letterman, albeit not as nasty, he has been attacking Romney but has gone mushy on Obama.

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies awarded about $415,000 in contracts to a license plate-tracking company before Homeland Security leaders dropped a plan for similar work amid privacy complaints. Federal offices such as the Forest Service and the U.S. Air Force´s Air Combat Command chose Livermore, Calif.-based Vigilant Solutions to provide access to license plate databases or tools used to collect plate information, according to government procurement records compiled by Bloomberg.

WASHINGTON— A Western official says the United States is considering deploying about 150 soldiers for military exercises to begin in Poland and Estonia in the next few weeks. The exercises would follow Russia´s buildup of forces near its border with Ukraine and its annexation last month of Ukraine´s Crimean Peninsula. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said earlier this week that the U.S. is looking for ways to reassure its NATO allies of its strong commitment to collective defense. The Western official says ground exercises in Poland and Estonia would last about two weeks but that such exercises would continue on a

This week’s POLITICO Magazine contains an uncharacteristic show of gratitude from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to President Barack Obama. Under the headline “A bipartisan message to Iran,” the senator thanks the president for signing his S 2195 bill into law, which prevents anyone who has engaged in espionage or terrorism against the U.S. from gaining entry to the country via the United Nations. “Thanks to President Obama for joining a unanimous Congress and signing S 2195 into law,” Cruz begins his piece.

The president´s speeches may need to be accompanied by a laugh track from now on, considering the crickets he received at his appearance in Community College of Allegheny County, in Oakdale, Pa., on Wednesday. Although he tried to tout his new spending program, both Obama´s talking points and attempts at humor didn´t go over so well: At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces. The White House video of the bleacher’s front rank shows three men with their hands crossed, one with his hands stuck

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our
