Obama on View


Can anyone say with a reasonable degree of certainty what was the purpose of President Obama's appearance this morning on The View. That was certainly a waste of time for his viewers and probably for himself. Or was this a recently discovered tape left over from his campaign for president in 2008. But he himself pointed out that his hair was grayer so it appears to be a recent show.

I had thought that his body language or his smile when he talked about jobs created or saved in the past usually signaled that he was being ironic on the saved part, but now I am convinced that he believes fervently his own B.S. Maybe he just owed a favor to Barbara Walters that she decided to call in. I had thought that presidents eventually reached a point where they could say no to even their most avid supporters. Maybe he did say no to Ms Behar.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
