When the going gets tough, the media-obsessed go on Leno.

Or, at least that’s the version of the saying that the president seems to live by. The economy is in a free-fall, his poll numbers are starting to sink, and people are starting to notice, at least a little. So what does Obama do? He’s doing what he does best… the bait and switch. Sure, things suck right now, but look how charming I am!

On Thursday night, our sitting president, the leader of the free world, a man who can get free air time on all the networks whenever he wants, has decided to lower himself by utilizing the genre of late night talk shows.

It’s one thing to do an interview with a real reporter who might ask some tough questions, but this is just a pathetic ploy by Obama to have a celebrity kiss his butt… again. And, it distracts everyone from the mess he’s made, or made worse, as the case may be.

It will be interesting to see if the American public falls for it. Unfortunately, they’ve fallen for it before. And, as Dr. Phil says, the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior, so I’m not getting my hopes up.
