Lighten up. It was very funny, and while Obama said it in jest (kinda), of COURSE he wouldn't go on the show without something to plug. Even if you
hate Obama you can at least enjoy some of the little quips from both parties. I also like Obama's lip bite after the turkey joke.
You may hate Obamacare, but Obama doesn't and if anything he should be lauded for sticking to his guns and attempting to reach out to the younger
generation. Even if it means going on a show that you think is stupid.
It's easy to forget just how much the world has changed since the advent of the internet, and especially how much change has happened within the last
5-10 years with more and more people connecting online and outright ignoring other media like newspapers and boring political talk shows. You want to
reach people, you're going to have to make some changes. I'm fairly certain any other president in our history would have gone on the show to reach
out to those who would otherwise probably not get the message were they able.
I'm no great fan of Obama, but the constant search for things to drag him through the mud is ridiculous. I felt the same way with Bush, and probably
will again with the next president.
In some countries satire can get you jailed. Same with any dissent. I'll take a president that can have some fun poked at him any day over one that
jails bloggers for their opinions.
