Obama to hit airwaves across the country

Washington (CNN) – As the Senate takes up the compromise he reached with Republicans to extend the Bush era tax cuts on Monday, President Obama will sit down for interviews with four local television stations from across the country to press for quick passage in Congress.

Obama will be interviewed by reporters from stations in Columbus, Ohio, Denver, Des Moines, and Tampa/St. Petersburg.

    Take it straight to the American people and tell them what's in it for them. Your Party seems to have a huge problem with "messaging", and presenting a UNITED front. Tsk Tsk for them. It befalls you to not only broker the deal, but to sell it. I wonder what your Democrap cronies get paid to do in Washington? You think they know Mr. President?

    I hope he will point out that the GOP Baggers are sucking the life blood out of our country.

    Fair is Fair

    Um... you think so? Just curious – what "accomplishments" that the majority of the electorate agree with will he run on? Obama is so weak and the democrats are so splintered that even a mediocre republican nominee could beat him.

    Lucky for Obama, the election is still almost 2 years away.
    Flip your entire argument and ask yourself: "What accomplishements does the GObP have to hang their little shingle on come election time in two years? What will they be able to tell the people that they've done FOR the people (NOT their Big Business buddies, the wealthy, or themselves). W-H-A-T??????

    Lucky for the GobP they have two years left to accomplish SOMETHING before the election.

    I'm sure the President can find quite a few million women who appreciate the Fair Pay Act, quite a few million parents with kids that have pre-existing conditions, or that can now stay on theiir parents health insurance until age 26. I'm sure that quite a few million more appreciated everything he got from BP for the Gulf States. And even this latest tax-cut deal ia appreciated by the middle-class considering that your team said to hell with them.

    By a landslide, Obama, the winner, in 2012.
    Really babe, who do you have besides the Half-Wit half-termer International Joke to the World?

    Why is he trying to sell us a bill of goods, on a plan, that is blatantly wasteful?

    Reminds me of a health bill......now found to be unconstitutional!

    I wonder if he will be on the Fascist news network, or maybe on G-Lenin Beck's 'Communists have some good ideas program.'

    I just realized I may have angered a 'Meth and Mountain Dew' right wingnut, and now the whole trailer park will be upset.

    Maybe he could run as a Republican in 2012 and run against himself.

    We could vote for the Bush III Obama or the Progressive Obama.

    Either one is better than Huck, Sarah, or newt.

    I I am mystified why Obama wanted to be President. He does not seem to have the will or the ability to fight for anything that he said he believed in – the last straw for me was failing to repeal the Bush tax cuts – which he said 3 years ago he found morally repugnant. What happened to the audacity of hope???

    He should just come and say it that he was wrong all along since both he and Clinton agree the BUSH tax cuts are the way to go. It was laughable at that press conference Friday with Clinton/Obama selling the Bush tax cuts and saying reverting back to the original Clinton rates would hurt the economy. He doesn't have to say he was wrong he is selling our plan.

    Another thing he still does not get. We are tired of looking at him, and listening to his lies. What is his point? Is he going to call hard working American taxpayers his "enemies" again and thrill the Dominican mama or call the Republicans "hostage takers" after the negotiate in good faith with him. If this media blitz is just to demean us and call us names some more, we don't want to see his smirky face or hear his whiny voice again. He can just call Keith Olberman, Chris Matthew, the Dominican mama and T'sah from Virginia and save the rest of us from listening to his crap again.
