Sunday Talk Shows Open Thread

Obama is on all the talk shows today — except FOX. Yes, the president is doing ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and Univision — but not FOX. (To be clear, the interviews with everyone, but not FOX, were taped on Friday.) Yet, FOX, the network of leading birther/racist Glenn Beck, doesn’t like it.

We’re going to hear the president answer questions about health insurance reform, of course, but also Afghanistan and the right wing craziness including the issue of race. But not on FOX.

The full slate up is after the break.

Here’s the full lineup:

ABC’s “This Week” — President Barack Obama.
CBS’ “Face the Nation” — Obama.
NBC’s “Meet the Press” — Obama; House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio; Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.
CNN’s “State of the Union” — Obama; Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich.

“Fox News Sunday” _ Bertha Lewis, chief executive officer of ACORN; Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif.; Fred Smith, chairman and chief executive of FedEx Corp.; Steve Odland, chairman and chief executive of Office Depot Inc.; John Chambers, chairman and chief executive of Cisco.

On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
