    President Obama is a wonderful president – Bush was a disaster.
    Bush caused 2 wars, financial collapse of our ecomony and nearly bankrupted our country...he got us so into debt that the Chinese has to bail us out. So much for all his tax cuts.
    So, the republicans can criticize the democrats all they want...smart people know its all distractions from the real issues and the truth.
    The republicans shame our country.

    Good, ask him about some of the main ideas the democrats have about paying for the Bill. i already know about replacing out dated systems so that repeated unneeded blood test will not keep raking up tax payer money. I get it. A large chunk will be payed for by reforming our efficiency. That has been long needed anyway, Great that they are going to do it. But, how about the 300 billion that they have not come up with a way to cover yet? I want to hear more about Obama's idea of limiting Tax Savings to 28% of Itemized Deductions for the very wealthy. 28% is what middle class people pay. Why do the rich get such huge breaks? Is it some kind of "nudge nudge wink wink" loop hole the rich get? Close it then. Lets pay for health care that way. it seems both fair and smart. I want to hear more about it.

    I am so glad he's not appearing on FOX!
    FOX is a disgusting "news" channel and they should be completely ignored by anyone that has an ounce of brains.
    FOX, IMO, is nothing but a bunch of nazis.

    The President will not be appearing on FOX, only on American TV networks. Just to get ahead of all of the dillusional righties that will add their comments that this guy is on TV too much, just remember 3 things. Bush wasn't on TV very often because he couldn't put a sentence together, couldn't answer a question without having the answer written down for him, and he didn't work on Sunday so he couldn't be on the Sunday shows. Now let's hear from all you nutjobs about how Obama is the worst President ever even while the economy begins to improve, the stock market goes thru the roof, the biggest banks are paying back their bailout money, and the greedy healthcare and drug companies are running scared because their days of bleeding the American people dry are coming to an end. Now all you righties, go back to watching FOX and living in your make believe worlds.

    Why is Obama afraid of Fox. You left wingers just don't get it do you? Fox is looking better and better all the time. The clown that we have for president doen't have enough class for Fox.

    I'm not so sure sitting down with John King is such a good idea either. I think he belongs on Faux News himself. Stopped watching him months ago.

    Is FOX a new channel??? And here I thought it was therapy for angry white people with limited analytical skills.

    "Fox is the Natioal Enquirer of the airwaves". ...Of course he wouldn't bother with them.

    Fox is a lost cause. They have only one mission..and that is to destroy this President at any cost. They lie and twist the truth. They are a joke to journalism.I never thought I would see our country galvanized like this..but with so called news like Fox. that plays to the rich and the fools that do their bidding by making them think they are Republicans too, I should not be surprised. No one with any education or sense of current events, could possible watch Fox. I don't know how anyone could sponsor such a network.

    So, he can sit down with 5 different shows to reach 30% of the country, but won't sit down with 1 show to reach 45% of the country..

    Obama a typical lawyer and politician, he can smooth talk his way thru anything. I guess it goes to show all the other networks are pro-democrat. I think the real idiots are not the republicans or democrats is the closeminded people that follow their respectivie parties like silly sheep and act like their party only does good and never anything bad. A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Anyone that responds negatively to this post is closed minded. Think about it.

    Obama is a coward. You cannot continue to ignore Fox News. It is the only network where you get the real deal. Fair and Balanced News. Critical and revealing editorializing.

    Obama claims to be bi-partisan and then snubs Fox News. Obviously Obama is only talking with FRIENDLY networks... you know... his lap-dogs.

    How about Obama ceases with the media power play and gets down to some executive power plays instead. Isn't that his real job? Many of us are getting tired of his talking the talk, but the only walk he is doing is right to the slobbering media who are lining up to hear POTUS speak.

    People are getting tired of Obama on TV he is a rerun always the same just different teleprompter. He won't go on FOX because they make ask him questions that he does not agree with. Chicken.

    Bush is this right on obama. He won't go on the Fox News because he is a Dem Chicken.

    Some body needs to tell Obama talk is cheap....until he taxes it to pay for health care.

    Let me guess....Obama is going to say the debate is over and we need to move ahead with health care.

    Where is Wilson when we need him.
