COMMENTARY | Remember when there was a sense of dignity in the office of president of the United States?
Even Bill Clinton could, as the phrase goes, act like he’d been there before, yet after almost 3 1/2 years into his presidency, Barack Obama could be the figurative love child of bumbling Mr. Bean and Ryan Seacrest who is seen and heard everywhere, including airport radar, as radio host Mark Levin often quips.
Since becoming president, Obama has made such dignified appearances as pretending he didn’t know who Snooki was on “The View,” as reported by MediaIte, to mocking the disabled on “Late Night with Jay Leno. Meanwhile, Michelle Obama has been seen dancing on Nickelodeon’s “iCarly,” working out on NBC’s “The Biggest Loser,” playing tug ‘o war on Jimmy Fallon, as well as appearances on “Sesame Street,” David Letterman, “Ellen” and many more. AllVoices has counted 44 appearances for the first lady.
The latest embarrassment to the office is Obama’s recent “Slow Jam on the News” with Jimmy Fallon, with the band The Roots. This is the same band that played Fishbone’s song that contains expletives when then presidential candidate Michele Bachmann appeared on the low-rated late night show.
