Well, I suppose he *is* better than Satan. RT @fixaaron Obama on The View: "Don’t compare me to the almighty; compare me to the alternative.

The alternative? Better than the almighty? Geez Louise, his hubris knows no bounds.

He also threw in a little race card for good measure.

RT @ZekeJMiller: Obama on "The View": "When your name is Barack Obama, it's always tight."

Bunch of bitterly clinging xenophobes and all. That’s how he, you know, won last time.

Contessa Brewer is breathlessly tweeting about Obama on The View.

Loving the episode of @BarackObama on @TheViewTv. Informative, entertaining, great questions from the hosts.

— Contessa Brewer (@contessabrewer) May 15, 2012

Yes, such hard hitting questions!

RT @BrettLoGiurato: Obama says he played soccer in high school. Good thing, because the media never would have vetted him to find out.

Obama: "I'm not much of a tweeter … as Michelle's said, I'm too long-winded for 140 characters"

— Jennifer Epstein (@jeneps) May 15, 2012

Now we know what goes on at front of plane: Obama eating chips & guac, fries, watching "Mad Men" & "Homeland."

— Jennifer Epstein (@jeneps) May 15, 2012

So now "The View" hosts are giving Obama a pop culture quiz. This is productive.

It makes me really happy that Mr. Barack Obama is on The View talking about The Avengers. I guess he doesn't have anything better to do.

Swooning from the Left, based on important reasoning like “ZOMG so dreamy!!!!”

Watching President Obama on The View …xoxoxo

Obama: "I'm not much of a tweeter. I have a tweeting account. I'm too long-winded for 140 characters."

— Elicia Dover (@EliciaDover) May 15, 2012

He tells the truth for once! And don’t we know it. Long-winded, indeed. It’s hard to keep things pithy when talking down to everyone and lying; lies are complicated. What a tangled web and all. Plus, he and his team really stink at Twitter. They fail every time.

Over on The View, Pres Obama portrays himself as verbally battered by wife Michelle. "She is just relentless," he says of her teasing.

— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) May 15, 2012

Typical ball and chain, are we right, fellas?

The “ladies” of The View can hardly keep themselves from simpering … or dropping their pants.


On Wed., Joy Behar will write in her diary: "Last night I dreamt of Obama…"

— KayBDay (@DayontheDay) May 15, 2012



Sheesh. Was she hoping he’d read some aloud to her?

Watching The View and Barbara Walters staring all in Obama face she must wanna go ..

— Mikey Soprano (@PaperPlaneMikey) May 15, 2012

Barbara Walters just admitted to President Obama that she took napkins from the White House when she visited. Lol

— K-Ann (@misskerriebaby1) May 15, 2012

And she sleeps with them under her pillow every night.

Watching Obama on The View at the office. Is it wrong that I'm hoping Whoopi, as she is wont, farts on air again? In his presence?

"I want to spend the next five years recreating an America that if you work hard, you can make it" ~ President Obama on The View

— Simone Amelia (@BossLadyTV) May 15, 2012

Creating. He is the alternative almighty and all. He can do it in only 5 days! More Obama in History moments.

Walters: So, who's going to win the election? Pres. Obama with a determined expression: Oh….I'm gonna win! #TheView

— Nerdy Wonka (@NerdyWonka) May 15, 2012

Don’t count on it, champ.


Votes ‘present’ on his own grade this time; President Incomplete.

Romney camp points out that Obama gave himself a B+ when asked to grade himself in '09, but now says 'Incomplete.'

— Byron Tau (@ByronTau) May 15, 2012

MT @bccohan: #PresidentDowngrade @Timodc: After giving himself a B+, Obama has downgraded himself to "incomplete." http://t.co/8UiWJduu

— BiasedGirl (@BiasedGirl) May 15, 2012

President downgrade, indeed. First our credit rating, now his own grades. Letter grades are hard. Vote incomplete!
