How does Obama have time to campaign and be on TV with so many issues going on?


I've just been wondering how Obama allocates his time between business and campaigning. With turmoil overseas and problems in the U.S, I get a little upset seeing Obama on the Late Night Show or on TV shows. I'm thinking he has better things to do, but is it typical for presidents to place so much emphasis on campaigning? It seems that's all he does now.

    No I wouldn't want to be president either, but in a regualr job when faced with many things to do at once, I would just prioritize and being on TV would never come before taking care of the bigger things.

    Keep in mind he didn't have to strap on his guns and go with the Seal Team to take out Bin Laden. All he had to do was give his OK. So it was entirely possible for him to do both the roast and the mission at one time.

    Your kidding right? Where on earth did you get this information? I would be genuinely interested in your source as this is the first time I have heard this.

    What is there to govern right now? Congress is in recess yet again....they are the ones who pass laws, not the president.

    Many of the presidents have been misrepresented and who knows how much they can take credit for. presidents in past have been on tV but Obama on Late night Jay Leno TV show- first president to be on there. It's like he's selling himself.

    I was wondering if I was the only one thinking Obama does an awful lot of campaigning and TV shows for pubicity. I don't watch a lot of TV but stuck turned on the other day and him and his wife were everywhere on various shows, not a press release..
