Barack Obama: “I’ve Been Told I’m Just Eye Candy”

Obama went on ‘The View’ with wife Michelle Obama. (ABC News)

Barack Obama told the ladies on “The View” today, “I’m just eye candy.”
Reuters reported:

President Barack Obama on Monday sought to woo women voters at a taping of the daytime talk show “The View,” by flirting with his wife and bearing gifts for the hosts, but he could not escape tough questions on the economy that have dominated the election.

When host and veteran journalist Barbara Walters kidded Michelle Obama about bringing the president as her “date,” Obama quipped, “I’ve been told I’m just eye candy here.”

    If you’re feeling ill, reading this should make you feel much better:

    [Former Romney deputy chief of staff Renee] Fry said, “From the personal side, after government, in 2008, I had a massive (noncancerous) brain tumor and nearly died. I can tell you one of the first phone calls I got was from Governor Romney.”
    “I was a little medicated at the time and I was telling him, it just wasn’t fair. In his very reassuring voice, he said, ‘Whatever I can do to help, I will be there for you,’ ” she said.

    Lindstrom, who had young children when she served with Romney, said the governor told her: “Family comes first.”

    “To have a boss say, ‘We’ll have mistakes but they’ll be our mistakes,’ was very empowering,” she said.

    Herzfelder said: “I see this man up there that I know has this great strength, this great warmth. His actions really speak to the kind of man he is.”

    Gillespie recalled how Romney called her every night, for 10 straight nights, when her father was in a coma after heart surgery.

    And she told one more story. The day she moved to Massachusetts, the moving company didn’t get all her furniture inside the house. The governor called and asked her how things were going. She said furniture was still on the driveway.

    “I’ll get the boys,” Romney told her.

    19. [and to Adam]… for dust you are and to dust you shall return.

    Want to know how biased the media is?

  • LOL “eye candy” ? According to worldly standards, this man is not very attractive. For believers, we know that “you shall know them by their fruits” and his are rotten. That seeps out and his inner person makes the outer person extremely unattractive. For me personally, just to look at him turns my stomach upside down… he makes me ill.

    the who, what, where, when, why, or how of Obama is totally
    irrelevant, what is extremely relevant is what this person has
    done, is still doing, and will continue to do to America, period..

    the ONE thing the ONE has used more often than not to distract from
    reality and truth during both his pre & post Presidential positions are
    “LABELS” (color, creed, class, credentials), and it’s also the ONE thing
    he has done with expertise bar none..

    In the 60 Minutes interview, he gave an answer that probably explains why his days start (daily briefings) at 10AM.

    Mooch and the girls go to bed at 9:30-10PM and he has his “alone time” from 10PM ’til 1AM.

    For those who watched BHO and Romney answering similar questions, Romney came across worlds better; very appealing and thoughtful.

    How Mitt Romney is actually defeating Barack Obama in the presidential race


    Using a weighting that assumes Republicans and Democrats will be 35 percent each in the actual electorate that votes in the election, Romney would win the race 51.8 percent to 48.2 percent.

    If the electorate is Republicans by two percent, meaning 36 percent Republicans to 34 percent Democrats, Romney would win 50.70 percent to 49.30 percent.

    If the electorate is Democrats by two percent, meaning 36 percent Democrats to 34 percent Republicans, Romney would win 52.90 percent to 47.10 percent.

    Democrats will have to have a four percent edge among the voting electorate, meaning 37 percent Democrats to 33 percent Republicans, for Obama to win the popular vote by a very narrow 50.40 percent to 49.60 percent majority. Assuming those numbers and adding just a five percent higher turnout level among Republicans would wipe out that Obama margin and give Romney a slim lead.

    If one believes the real election day results are somewhere near the middle of the range in the above scenarios, that points to an electorate that is even to possibly one or two points in favor of the Democrats, which nonetheless still translates to Romney being announced president-elect on election night. Romney is winning this election right now.

    Complaints Mount Against Michelle Obama’s New Lunch Menu

    Despite the fact that the new regulations have increased the cost of a lunch 20 to 25 cents per plate, it’s not pleasing students.

    Some are throwing away their vegetables while others are adapting to the rules by becoming industrious. In New Bedford, Massachusetts, students have created a black market – for chocolate syrup. The kiddie capitalists are smuggling in bottles of it and selling it by the squeeze, according to

    The rules, which apply to schools across the state, also reduce the amount of protein served to high schoolers, and increase servings of fruit and vegetables — going so far as to specify how many servings of green vegetables, legumes, and red/orange vegetables should be consumed each week.

    “We’re only doing what we’re supposed to do,” said Voc-Tech Superintendent Linda Enos. “It wasn’t a choice that we had.”

    The changes are especially hard at the elementary school level, where hummus and black bean salad have been a tough sell, said Nancy Carvalho, director of food services for the New Bedford Public Schools, adding that bowls of chili served Wednesday to comply with the legume specifications were “not a very good decision.”

    “It’s hard to plan the menu for things that you think the child is going to consume, like the legumes especially,” Carvalho said.

    She is trying to change the way our children eat. PROBLEM, each child is different, frame, genetics, activity, home life and so on. She is acting like a dictator to, and her looks, I doubt if she is a man’s eye candy. The two are suited for each other, both like to dictate to America.

    CBO: Electric Cars Are A Waste Of Money

    The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) did a good job of shredding the electric car industry and the government’s role in its evolution with this report (Link).

    Read more:

    Effects of Federal Tax Credits for the Purchase of Electric Vehicles

    CBO estimates that federal policies to promote the manufacture and purchase of electric vehicles, some of which also support other types of fuel-efficient vehicles, will have a total budgetary cost of about $7.5 billion through 2019. Tax credits for buying electric vehicles—which account for about one-fourth of that cost—are likely to have the greatest impact on vehicle sales. The electric vehicles that are the focus of this study fall into two broad classes:

    Plug-in hybrid vehicles are powered by an internal combustion engine, which runs on gasoline or other liquid fuels, and by an electric motor, which is powered in part by an externally rechargeable battery.
    All-electric vehicles, also known as battery electric vehicles, run entirely on battery power.

Why was there no firefight, no American resistance? That’s what I want to know.

    he is eye candy to a vast majority of couch potatoes who watch this intellectually deficient idle time show. this might be why he chose to appear on the view…his voters most likely wouldn’t be to willing to watch him with world leaders – his lessors in his mind. his mentor alinsky realized that change couldn’t happen with just the lower class…you would have to draw in the middle class. rather than drawing the poor class up they’re drawing the middle class down.

    [P.J. Moran, a food service director for a small district in rural Kansas, said wastage has gone up “at least 20 percent” over last year, as students, particularly at the grade school level, cannot refuse anything on their trays — but, of course, cannot be forced to eat it..] my goodness it seems like just yesterday obama said that cruise ships…..[In his Book , “Dreams of my father”, Obama tells of an 1990 Wright sermon that preached of a world of white greed, “a world where cruise ships throw away more food than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year, where white folks’ greed runs a world in need, apartheid.]
