I was bored earlier and decided to tune into the Joy Behar Show on HLN news to see what was going on... Dione Warwick and Connie Francis were the guests and right when I tuned in, they started discussing President Obama. I won't give away what Ms Francis said about Obama until after I write about her comments regarding Pres GW Bush... she said she thought he was the worst president the US has ever had, then Ms Warwick piped in with 'Both Bushes'. Joy of course loved that, leaning forward and asking 'really?! the worst president ever??' with delight, as usual. But then Francis went on to say that she agreed that it would have been a better place if Al Gore had been president instead. I had to clean my ears out for that one. I am not trying to support Bush here, I personally think all these politicians are as bad as each other right now, no matter what party has been at the helm. In one way or another, they have all contributed in part to what is happening right now. But Ms Francis seemed off in space on that one.Gore might have narrowly lost in 2000, but he had a second chance come up in 2004, but he didn't even win his own primary - John Kerry did. If the Dems didn't even want Al Gore at the helm themselves, what is it about Gore that Francis thinks would make the world such a better place?
Back to what Francis said about Obama, she gave him the usual glowing remarks of how he is on the world stage and it's their best foot forward. But she also intruded on Behar's opening questions by saying something like 'I know what you are going to ask [Joy], have I dreamed about marrying President Obama"..."Yes I have dreamed about marrying him, but I did not dream about having sex with him".
Fruit Loop City on that program, that's all I can say. I guess the intro to the show on my tv listings channel is totally serious - "discussions about water cooler topics"... AKA "fluff".
