Today, President Obama visited The View, a show airing on ABC with co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Barbara Walters, Joy Behar, Sherri Shepherd, and Elisabeth Hasselbeck. It was actually a very nice appearance with discussions including personal family vignettes, and current problems the country is experiencing. I found it to be quite uplifting.
Pat Buchanan, on the other hand, passed judgment on this prior to even seeing it, saying that the President would somehow destroy the “majesty” of the office by appearing. Pat must have forgotten the neck rub George W. Bush administered to German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the G-8 Summit.
I know Nixon was not yet President when he made his infamous appearance on “Laugh-In”. but who can forget his majestic “Sock it to me?”
Pat, you know not of wherefore thou speaketh.
