What are your thoughts on Obama appearing on Jay Leno? He will be the first sitting president to appear on such a show ever. Jay Leno becomes part of Barack Obama's bailout - Los Angeles Times With all the talk of AIG wasting money, isn't a bit hypocritical to spend a lot of money to go out and be an entertainer? It's not like his access to press releases is lacking. Jay will ask him about how it feels to be president of course and he'll laugh about it, blah blah, so on and so forth. This is presidential? In doing this, he comes across as a little too laid back while millions of Americans are struggling. Personally I think it comes across as disconnected. You can argue that he is trying to connect with the people by appearing on this show, but do people connect with Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie when they appear on such shows? No. If anything it just reminds people how distant they really are from such "celebrity status". I think it shows a lack of seriousness for the job he was elected to do. I am not impressed with this stunt. If we wanted Paris Hilton to be president we would have elected her.
