“It plays different on the TV than when you’re on the stage, clearly I had a bad night,” Barack expressed to Jay. “The whole point of debates is to make sure the American people understand the stakes.”

He also zinged business man Donald Trump during the interview. “This all dates back to when we were growing up together in Kenya,” Barack joked. “We had constant run-ins on the soccer field. He wasn’t very good and resented it. When we finally moved to America, I thought it would be over.”

    Stay in CA and be a comic. You haven’t had a serious press conference in months. What a joke.

    Seems Obama is more interested in playing celebrity while he sidesteps all the important issues like Libya, Syria and national debt.

    AMY Says:

    Both him and Romney are no good for our country. Why can’t we get a candiate like FDR? He always got the job done.

    Obamney Rombama Says:

    all those that have died in these wars for resources and corporate greed–shame–
    but in reality he is a complete puppet like all our presidents after JFK
    Obama has agreed to be a front man for the powerful greedy elite of not only just our country but the world. Romney will do the same.

    Most treat this election at if it was a WWF wrestling match or a sporting event . This is our future. We have no real choice with these two candidates.

    Journalistic Says:

    Barack over Mitt but still, my ideal candidate wouldn’t be playing up the celebrity and hanging out with Jay Z. I can barely take this guy seriously and I think he acted childish in the debates.

    I would never vote for Mitt or the GOP, their attitude towards women’s rights dates back to the dark ages.

    Lori Says:

    Obama took Bush’s complete 8 year mess and did very little with it. (yes I know he did a few things which can be easily overturned)
    So disappointing.
    Obama continued the assualt on our Constitution, despite promising that he would uphold it and repair the Bush admin. damage, which is what I will always remember about him. Deceived.
    He is/was a ringer who contiued an evil neo conservative agenda.

    GOP hates women therefore I have no choice but to vote for Obama.

    - maybe it’s me but seeing my Prez constatly cracking jokes does not give me much confidence in him

    cosmos Says:

    Ummm who cares if he went on Jay Leno? And for one who said he’s done very little, look at the congress he’s had to work with or more so against him. Do you think Mitt would be going after Bank of America or any other company Obama’s gone after? Or how about Freeport, Il? Go ask Mitt & BAIN about that shipping jobs to China. I’m sorry but if you look at the issues especially regarding women and women’s health, the economy the FACT the next President will nominate so many supreme court justices I would NEVER jump on the side of the GOP. And after Murdoch’s statement yesterday and Aiken’s a couple month’s ago regarding women, rape and abortion how in the hell could ANY women for for lying Mitt and anyone in his party. Who by the way lied 24 times in 31 minutes the last debate. Seriously?! You want to trust a lier and believe you’ll be better off?

    Obama Says:

    Voting for Obama and I will have to admitt that instead of voting for who will do the best job I have I was forced to decided, “which of these two could do the least damage”. That was a tough one.

    Mitt Romney is a snob who deceives humble ignorant minds. He’s no king of the world.

    Gia Says:

    This president has spent the last year campaigning, maybe if he would put some real effort into actually getting people to work instead of them having to understandably go to the food stamp line, we would be moving forward. Instead, he is on the View, Letterman, Leno…I’m changing my vote this election. My mom lost her job a month ago, we need action, not these appearances!

    amy Says:

    Never have I seen a President who is constantly hanging with either Oprah, Wil Smith, Beyounce, and other celebs in Armani suits. I don’t know much about what he has actually done for hard working Americans. The only time you see him with normal people is when he is looking for votes. Then you see him dressed like “us”, rolling up his sleeves, seriously? I don’t live in the US. Looking from the outside. Your President certainly does the hanging with Rich celebs, Alottttt. As for who to vote for, Hmm, well either an ex lawyer or ex businessman. I’d probably vote for the exbusinessman. I mean first off what has Obama done for you? not with celebs, but you? Second, an exbusinessman may know a thing or two about how to run things. Third, seriously what do you have to lose?

    Bathhouse Barry LOST Says:

    Obama’s internal polling shows he lost. The Pritzkers are secretly planning his retirement to a 35 million dollar Oahu estate and McCormick Place has been selected for the concession speech election night according to Hillbuzz.

    ! , ? Says:

    Romney is surely another Bush, yikes, been there done that,
    and I’m still not clear who Obama is after four years.

    Cosmos, looks like you’ve bought into the Democratic propaganda. Distract women and the American people from the real problems!!!

    reggie Says:

    If the world had its say, this election would be a blow-out favouring Obama.
    That’s according to a BBC World Service poll taken in 21 countries. It found for the most part, foreign countries preferred Obama. The only exception was Pakistan where more people said they preferred Romney.

    Who endorses Romney – Donald Trump (an idiot – sorry he is)
    Who endorses Obama – Colin L. Powell (former Republican secretary of state)

    I seriously hope the majority of Americans are more intelligent than Donald Trump

    Why is the corrupt Entertainment and News Media working soooooooooo hard to get the WORST prez ever re-elected……
    Seriously we are worse off in every way, the Economy, Jobs, Food, Gas and Energy prices.
