Most of you that read here often know that I didn’t vote for Obama. This isn’t about that at all. Not in any way. This is just something I’d like to know if it’s just me or if other people feel the same way. Is anyone else getting sick and tired of seeing this man on TV constantly for “nothing” things?
I was sitting here Monday morning and beeping comes on the TV and interrupts the last few minutes of The View and I’m thinking, what’s up. Do you know now I can’t even think of what it was he talked about because my mind now just shuts off after I know we aren’t getting bombed somewhere.
Not only that but it was an answer session too where all the reporters got to ask him questions. There wasn’t ONE serious question asked. One woman reporter asked him if he quit smoking or if he still “snuck” a few!! Can you even imagine? You can ask the president anything you want and you ask a lame question like that? Give me a break. This is interrupting television all the time.
You all must see the same thing I do so what’s the deal here? I’ve been around the block a few times but I don’t ever remember this kind of thing with any other president. Do you really think we need to know when he and his wife have a “date night?” Do we really need to know if he’s suffering from not having his Blackberry? Do we need our television interrupted to hear that the “First Family” got a puppy? Why is this president not treated like any of the other previous presidents?
The American people voted this man into office to do a job but I didn’t agree. He’s not a celebrity so why the constant media coverage? I mean, I like to see the kids romping in the yard with the dog and I like seeing them wave from the plane but I think it’s gone way to far. Let him do his damn job. Quit treating him like he’s a movie star.
The other thing that concerns me is when he comes on all the time with that “bulletin” sound, the first thing you think is something is wrong. What I fear is someday something will be wrong and we’re just going to tune it out thinking it’s another “look at me, I’m president” again and we may not pay attention. Anyone ever hear of the little boy who cried wolf?
All of these things that they break into shows with or take an hour of our night-time viewing could be told on the World News. I’m not saying I’m not interested in any of it but at the right time and place. In my opinion, it’s just gotten to be to much. Breaking into other programming should be for something important.
