    "Obama consulted with 'Dancing with the Stars"........better headline would be: Oblamer consulted with George Soros, SEIU, Muslim Brotherhood and communist leaders to get one on one instructions on the best way to destroy this country.

    I THOUGHT that 7:30PM was an odd time for a presidential address... but now that we know Obama got his marching orders from ABC, it all makes sense.

    It's very nice of our President to not want to interrupt our vital TV schedule to discuss such inane topics as going to war and placing our military in danger. Or was it that he was afraid nobdoy would watch him? Somehow I think the later!

    Who gives a crap when the speech was scheduled ? Sarah Palin ? Does anyone even watch DWTS anymore after last year ? I don't know anyone that would care since DWTS is on at five different times on the same night almost everywhere in the country.

    Well, yeah...the reason many people don't know what's going on politically in their lives is because they'd rather watch so called reality shows instead of a presidential addres regarding their country's well being, whether it is this president or ones before him.

    Funny how the Teapublicans are critical of Obama for this, when less than a year ago their top priority was making Sarah Palin's daughter a star on the exact same show.

    You don't want to irritate people over interrupting their favorite shows, when everyone knows it is just political spin.

    Because the American public knows the TV show "Dancing with the Stars" is more important than anything Obama says.
