    FOX can sit down with Joe Wilson instead. His 15 minutes of "silly season" fame are just about up, so he needs another Faux boost.

    Obama should stop with the speeches (more given than days he has served as President) and stop with his wish to be a celebrity and realize his job is to be President.

    As President, he promised to "create 4 million jobs by the end of summer" and has failed to do so and yet the MSM spends more time on Palin's flight plans, Obama's golf games than they do keeping this guy honest.

    ENOUGH ENOUGH ENOUGH

    I hope you say that Joe Blow Wilson got his. I hope he puts those attack dogs to work on the Repukes, but we'll see. His patient soft spoken manner is still working. The so called party of values should know this since the are supposed to be Jesus people. Oh I forgot ...they made thier own jesus in their own likeness.

    Why doesn't it surprise me that the most powerful man on the face of the earth is afraid to be interviewed by Fox News? The Campaigner in Chief knows that his lies will be questioned on Fox, so he will stick with the Lame Stream media outlets that have been helping him. Sad...very sad!

    You wanted this job Mr. President, now go and do it!

    Good. Fox doesn't deserve any of the President's time. It has to be obvious to everyone now that they aren't a "news" station by any definition.

    Obama is afraid of Fox News because he knows that they know that he's full of chit.

    Another unpaid political message to His fawning media drones. Hide from FOX, Mr. President, you may get some questions you don't like.

    Obama's afraid to go on Fox. He's only willing to go in front of "journalists" who can be trusted to toss only softballs.

    Thank you Mr Prez, I'll be watching FOX I've heard your change for America before! Illegals are not covered! Wake up America! NO ER can refuse medical treatment! It is illegal and they would be SUED! So we the taxpayer still pay. Obama won the election! The people voted for change! WE did not understand he meant ALL OUR CHANGE!

    Fox is largely an anti-American propoganda operation. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if it eventually turns out that the entire organization is simply a front for enemy spies.

    Won't sit down with Fox? Can't handle fair and balanced reporting obviously. The only network who made a true American hero out of a true American Hero-Joe Wilson. He showed true restraint by not caning him. Maybe they could tar and feather Barack Osama-that would truly be fair and balanced!!! He is ruining all the wonderful progress of the last 8 years. He is trying to take the Christianity out of the Constitution. He is going to kill your Grandma. Turn us into a nation run by reverse racists-give power to blacks and Hispanics-he must be stopped-you go Fox News!

    Of course he won't appear on Fox. He'd get real questions there that he clearly doesn't want to answer. The other networks will just make it a love-in where Obama can duck and evade. Real hard hitting objective journalism in the country is dead!!!

    the messiah is afraid of Fox??? now that's a real hero.

    Maybe Fox can interview some of its own hosts, maybe Glenn Beck, since they are not into real news anyways....

    Guess I'll be grateful to be no where near a television on Sunday. Seriously the guy needs to stop feeding his ego and get to work. Clearly he's got a lot of problems to solve so please stop wasting our hard earned tax dollars with TV appearances. We all know who you are.

    Great. Get out there and explain to people how this thing can be paid for with an acceptable increase in taxes.

  20. Obama fan...not!

    Let's see....Joe Wilson on Fox....Obama on all other networks?
    According to the ratings...doesn't that mean more people see Wilson?
    Obama isn't interested in speaking to all the people!!

    Obama and the rest of the Democrates admonish Wilson, These Democrates DONT GET IT, they are all JOKES. Admonish Frank for not respecting a constituent. If you worked for me I'D FIIRE THE LOT OF YOU. Democrates are jokes and a waste of human flesh with their private government control agendas.

    What a waste of Obama's time. Apparently he doesn't have enough work to do, despite all the issues facing the country.

    And what is up with the Wilson, "You lie!" thing being turned into a race issue by the House Dems? Once again, if you disagree with Obama the Dems want to paint you as a racist. It is getting really old.
