    Two sports guys invited on to CNN to discuss an inane 5 minute interview with the President, lol. Jesus is the mainstream media dying to get out some good news for the President.

    The President providing an exclusive interview in a battleground state to 2 guys on a sports radio talk show got about 4 minutes of coverage on cnn. Just 4 minutes. If Romney does the same, wouldn’t you expect him to get 4 minutes of coverage on foxnews? Also, the common man and the torg have extended an invitation to Romney.

    Here’s the cnn clip. The Torg looked awkward on tv.

    Guess it’s easier to go on a sports show than talk jobs reports.

    No I wouldn’t, and I would also hope not. But desperate for stupid stories in the news cycle, you never know. CNN had nothing better to discuss than that? If inane stories are the rage, how about a 4 minute discussion on the greatest sports President from Chicago mispronouncing the home of the Chicago Cubs twice.

    So is it safe to say that if Romney (or whoever you may support) does the same as Obama and is featured on a news channel, you will be the first to say “pandering” and call out the news channel that featured him (or her)?

    If a politician wants to go on the radio to chat sports and try to appeal to the average american “dude” in a battleground state, big deal. Who is it hurting? This isn’t some veiled wickedness at work.

    And in regards to CNN not having anything better to discuss than this, they aired a tiny 3 minute spot on this, a blip over the course of 24 hours. You act like it was some headline story.

    I’m not even a Obama supporter, I just don’t see the reason to get all up in arms over this.
