President Obama checked in with Ellen Degeneres Thursday, chatting with the comedian about “House of Cards,” Obamacare and life in the White House. Ellen - you've been off my list for quite a while. I cannot believe POTUS is now working the talk shows like a B grade comedian. Everyone know BO's taped a Playboy interview? THIS IS NOT FUNNY, BO. YOU SUCK.
President Obama, America's Nero - President Theodore Roosevelt said, "Speak softly, and carry a big stick." More than a century later, President Barack Obama speaks loudly (and incessantly) and carries a twig. Like Nero of ancient Rome, Obama fiddles, takes selfies and does Internet interviews while the world burns. Is he trying to distract himself, or us? To use a sports analogy, is he trying to "run out the clock" and leave office before terrorist fires consume us?
