As Obama Accepts Offers,
Late-Night Television Longs

New York Times, by Bill Carter

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.

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.

#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.

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.

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.

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.

The Obama administration wants to spend $400,000 on a camel sculpture for a new embassy building in Pakistan, according to a report Monday. BuzzFeed broke the news that the State Department has plans to commission the camel sculpture from John Baldessari, an American artist. The art is called, “Camel Contemplating Needle.” According to a government document posted by BuzzFeed, the sculpture is a “large 500lb fiberglass aluminum, stainless steel, acrylic and painted contemporary art piece.” “Public art which will be presented in the new embassy should reflect the values of a predominately Islamist country,” the document states.

When money managers set up in the U.A.E., they’re usually either investing in the region or trying to tap the Middle East’s large pools of capital for funds that look elsewhere. Ahmad Zuaiter, however, is doing something a little different: using Dubai as a geographically central base from which to invest in frontier markets globally. Mr. Zuaiter, who managed money for George Soros until 2011, has been working for more than a year on a new firm called Jadara Capital, based in the Dubai International Financial Centre. He’s now raising money for Jadara’s maiden fund, which will invest in stocks

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

President Bill Clinton´s guilty conscience over his affair with Monica Lewinsky – and a desire to repair his shattered reputation by using the State of the Union address – set his speechwriters an unenviable task, newly released archive papers reveal. The former president appeared to be trying to butter up his wife, Hillary Clinton, out of guilt – or perhaps to fool her – before the scandal broke. And he was determined to try to convince the American public afterwards that he was still of a high moral character.

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate.

What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow.
