Obama takes the hot seat on talk show “The View”

The daytime talk show hosts of ABC’s “The View” have a new guest today—the 44th president of the United States.

In the first interview of a sitting president in “The View’s” history, Obama faces the show’s women co-hosts, including renowned interviewer Barbara Walters, to discuss the administration’s accomplishments, jobs, the economy, the Gulf of Mexico oil spill and family life inside the White House.

Obama has been on the show before, once in 2004 to promote his book, Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance, and again in March 2008. Michelle Obama also made a guest appearance on the show in June 2008, where she was spotted fist-bumping with the co-hosts.

But how did a daytime talk show appearance get on the president’s busy schedule? Going on the show, which has a largely female audience, is a way for Obama to “talk to the people where they are,” Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said in a press briefing Tuesday.

Watch when the show, filmed Wednesday, airs at 11 a.m. EDT or check back later to watch the episode online.

  1. America get ready. The drug cartels are the Taliban that the United States are going to have to deal with. That is what we get for putting Barrack Hussain Obama in office. The reason he is doing this is that he is getting kick backs from the cartels and his adminitration is getting the kick backs also. When WE THE PEOPLE stand up and take our country back. Obama should be tried and jailed for the crimes he has been part of in destroying our country. But, I am telling you that Mexico is getting ready to attack the United States and our government is letting it happen. Remember when everyone was asleep at the wheel when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. It is all happening again. And for all you weak minded people that support the illegals, pack your bags and move to Mexico. This is going to be a long drawn out war so I do hope that everyone is ready to fight for this country. It is going to be like the Alamo all over again. Mexico want to over throw this country. You can believe it or not. But that is what is happening right now.

    Go out and get yourselves prepared for war the best you can. And while you are at it….please pickup some extra body bags for your neighbors that do not think there is going to be a war. I am telling you right now that The United States is at the beginning of a major war and our government is letting it happen. We are going to be just like Pakistan.

    We have got to get the Obama Adminitration and all the liberals out of office and prepare for war. It is coming, like it or not. Look at it folks…….Obama has lied about everything he had promised when he was running for office…….He is taking this country into the gutter. Allot of our families and friends are going to die because of the Obama Adminitration. Look at what the cartel is doing in Mexico. It is going to happen right here soon. the Cartel is our Taliban.

    I just want to say that I love my country and evryone that lives here. Before the war begins, please say your goodbyes to your family and friends because allot of them will not be here once it starts. I am a veteran and know how it feels to looks your friends to war. It is coming sooner than you think. The cartel has just been given the green flag from the Federal Judge in Arizona. Yes she should be kicked off the bench and thrown in jail for what shwe has done. What she has done is the same as. There is a man at your ddor with a gun to kill you and your whole family and she opens the door and says here kill them all and walks away.


  2. uh huh, we’re all gonna attack and destroy you, we the evil druggie anti-american taliban. fortunately, you hardworking right-wingers will prevail over us because god is on your side.

    omg you americans suck. obama is the best thing that has happened to america in the last 30 years and you don’t even have the decency to appreciate him.

  3. hey wildman . you need to see the last 8 years . if bush or cheney would have never attacked Iraq we would have a strong border and their wouldn’t be any problems with the drug cartels . our troops should have stayed and protected our border instead the GOP/repulicans and bush cheney attacked an innocent iraqi’s who NEVER had anything to do with 9/11. we are fighting for Israel and sending them billions and billions of our american tax dollars . Israel is the master plan of 9/11 with the help from the saudi’s.

    the racist zionist jews , saudi’s , kkk , tea party , nazi’s and fox news are all destorying america.
    america has already been destoryed by bush/cheney.

    obama will give us back our life which bush/cheney and the republicans stole from americans like me.
