Letterman begs Romney
to come on "Late Show"

CBS News, by Lindsey Boerma

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 9/30/2012 3:23:19 PM

Mitt Romney's presidential campaign has "done a first-rate job of snubbing us," CBS "Late Show" host David Letterman said Friday, demanding of his audience that if the GOP nominee hasn't appeared on his show by election day on Nov. 6, "don't vote for him." Reprising past pleas to the former Massachusetts governor, Letterman announced that "Mitch" Romney, as the bit goes, has his pick of "any night, any time, short notice, whatever he wants." President Obama went on the show last week. Letterman said he's "getting a whiff" that Romney's "scared -- let me rephrase that... yellow," and joked that

Comments:
Sure Letterman makes fun of anybody. Like Michelle and Barack 0bama? The whole show would be an awful setup filled with lies and propaganda. Romney has gone to 'enemy' camps like the NAACP but Letterman is just plain sleazy, stupid and a waste of time.

Mitt, don't go. There will be nothing gained by going on this sleazy show.

Letterman searching for relevance.

Throwing a tantrum because a guy everybody knows you want to ambush will not fall for the trap is no way to get there.

Absolutely agree with your comment OP! letterman is a nasty little man with NO redeeming-social-value and it would be a huge waste of time for Mitt Romney to breathe the stale air letterman does. Yuck.

Don't go. Letterman is trying to set Romney up. He loves Obama and Michelle so why would he want Romney on unless he wants to blast him in front of the few people who tune in. Letterman is a sleezy womanizer which Obama may approve of, but I know that Romney does not.

The first poster has it right, Letterman is "sleazy, stupid" and appearing on his show would be "a waste of time."

The MSM is already doing a real good job of slapping Romney/Ryan around without giving this Leftist plastic idiot bobblehead his chance to get in some more licks.

Frankly, I've never understood how this no-talent bozo with bad teeth and corny jokes ever got where he is, much less pulling down his, no doubt, astronomical annual salary.

Mitt is doing this just right. Ignore Letterman. Force Letterman into acting like a child. Presidents must bend a knee to Letterman? No, only Obama, who has a "bow reflex", has lowered himself into a situation where he has been commanded into the presence of old gap teeth.
Even a Vietnam Fighter Pilot and POW/Senator-- McCain-- got pulled into this trap, and it was just one more event set where the press could interact with the brave comedian Letterman (who has done so much for his country), to pull an embarrassing spin cycle or two for the leftists. Mitt, go on as you are doing. Treat Letterman the way a President should. With no animosity or anger, treat him like the fly feeding on a dog log that he is and stay on message.

Letterman, et al, consider having presidential candidates appear as feathers in their caps. Romney should never (re)consider going on that program for the sake of his "real" adult status. Obama is nothing more than some rock star, celebrity narcicist that eats up that stuff. Romney could be seen as boring, but real adults can often be boring. I doubt the founding fathers were considered "party animals." Obama is an amateur that has never had a real job and was placed in his present position by dark and powerful figures. He is nothing more than an image that reflects the desires of his behind-the-curtain handlers/financiers. In every sense of the phrase, he is a paid-for tool of his masters. Romney should never go back on that show any more than Dan Quayle should ever appear on The View. (I can only imagine).

Letterman is famous for inviting people on and then sandbagging them. He did it to Rush, he did it just last week to Cameron of England; and his off-color remarks about the Palins were odious.

As Rush said, I remember when Letterman used to be funny and it was presidents who were serious.

Johnny Carson, the gold standard of late night TV, unquestionably earned the towering stature he achieved and so richly deserved. No one has ever reached Carson’s level as a consummate entertainer in that unique, bedtime showbiz venue. Many have tried. Few have even come close. David Letterman’s puerile approach to hosting and performing is bottom-of-the-barrel amateurishly rank. Want childlike silliness? Dave’s your boy. Want charm, adroit cleverness and sophistication worthy of an audience of grownups? Letterman simply doesn’t have the chops.

In the early years of the Republic and well into the 19th century it was considered beneath the dignity of a presidential candidate to campaign openly at all. The presidential aspirant was supposed to indicate that he was available if the people should desire him to fulfill the duties of the presidency, but that was all. Campaigning itself was left to "friends." Of course this was not quite the whole story. Behind the scenes, the candidate was scheming and doing tricks - but never in public.

We can see how far we have come now that it is even a possibility that a candidate for the United States presidency would appear in a comedic venue like the Letterman Show. There are those who regard this development as a good and necessary thing. I am not among them.

Romney should not just reject the invitation he should completely ignore the invitation... As he would ignore any disingenuous vermin asking for some of his valuable time.

Sure, go on Leno. Leno says some ignorant stuff, is easily influenced and you can see his writers' and even his wife's Left tilt regularly in his monologue, but I don't think he has a Left agenda. I.E. I think Leno is a fair man, or tries to be. Unlike Letterman.

I've seen about 5 minutes of Letterman in the past few years. It happened to be last week with David Cameron.

I thought he was exceptionally rude and boorish when he asked about British colonization of the world and he said something like "wasn't that just horrible?"

It made me think that with Obama's anti-colonial background Letterman was given that specific phrasing by someone else. I don't think it would be the number one thing on the average Americans mind when meeting the British Prime Minister.

Why would any Republican appear on Letterman? I remember when I was in grad school in the 1990s. I had a vicious, evil liberal professor who LOVED David Letterman. This evil, liberal professor demanded that his grad students watch Letterman so they could yuk-yuk in the morning about how stupid conservatives were and how smart liberal professionals like him were. Ever since that time, I have a visceral hatred of Letterman and his snide, cruel, hate-filled brand of humor. Letterman is the voice of all of those evil liberal professors out there, who are one of the many barricades we need to destroy to get our country back.

Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama. In 2008, Obama won independents in the state by

Mitt Romney and President Obama each racked up early and expected victories Tuesday night in relatively safe territory, while some of the biggest battlegrounds that will decide the election remained too close to call. All the big swing states where polls have closed -- Florida, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia and North Carolina -- were too close to call, Fox News projects.

As expected, Republican candidate for President, Mitt Romney, won West Virginia’s five electoral votes in Tuesday’s General Election over President Barack Obama. National media outlets called the race in West Virginia shortly after polls closed at 7:30 p.m. President Obama’s fate in West Virginia has never been in question, as he garnered just 60 percent of the democratic vote in the May primary. The other 40 percent of that vote went to Texas federal inmate Keith Judd, who was placed on the ballot in West Virginia. President Obama has been hugely unpopular in the Mountain State since he first ran

Early exit polls show Election Day voters are slightly more Republican than in 2008 and broadly concerned about the state of the U.S. economy. Six in 10 voters said the economy is their top issue according to the poll, which was released by The Associated Press and conducted on behalf of a consortium of media companies. Less than a quarter of voters said their families were better off than four years ago — a point seized on by many Republicans as the results leaked out.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile.

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

"As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December

One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid´s website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don´t pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White House official
