First, President Barry wants to speak on television Wednesday — at the same time as a GOP presidential debate. That idea gets nixed — so he tries to get some TV time on Thursday. The problem with Thursday — that is the night that NFL football coverage kicks off. What a choice — escape from these horrible economic times by enjoying a great football game, or you can look at and listen to the man who gave us this mess.
The White House thinks they have the perfect compromise: go on the air at 7PM and finish before the game starts. I FOR ONE have a HUGE problem with putting him on air at 7PM. That would mean preempting all of my Two and a Half Men, Cheers, and King of Queens reruns for that night. (Just thinking about that nightly Doug-and-Carrie fix gets me through my work day.) I am sure I am not the only one who passionately looks forward to the nightly reruns of these comedy classics. If this goes through, I DEMAND reparations.
(Maybe the TV folks can fit Barry in sometime between 2am and 3am, preempting some of those home shopping infomercials.)
My first thought: why does Barry even need to have a special televised speech? He has 24-7-365 propaganda at MSNBC and CNN. The sycophants at CBS, NBC, and ABC drool over his every syllable every night for at least thirty minutes. Just send them a release, and leave the rest of us alone to enjoy Sam-and-Diane, Doug-and-Carrie, Charlie Sheen, and the Packers and the Saints.
