The President as Celebrity
Does it bother you that President Obama went on Jay Leno this week to discuss foreign policy? It bothers me. We are closing 20 embassies around the world because of supposedly credible threats from al Qaeda. An attack on an embassy is an act of war -- it is no different than if a foreign power attacked American soil. So, with a supposedly credible threat of an act of war against America, the President chooses to spend time flying to Los Angeles to appear on a talk show with a comedian?
What's worse... apparently Leno was more insightful and probing in his questions than most of the White House Press corps has been.
