Letterman to Obama -- This Spud's For You!

9/22/2009 2:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Barack Obama went on Letterman and all he got was this heart-shaped potato.

Barack & Letterman: Click to watch
Before touching on health care, Afghanistan and a number of other topics, the Commander In Chief was randomly given a potato by a member of the audience.

He was also asked by Dave if he believes racism was the reason for recent political attacks. His classic response: "I was actually Black before the election." Who knew?!

Here we go, another display of a celebrities' slobbering love affair with Obama. Somebody needs to tell Obama he is not a movie star, but unfortunately the President of the U.S. He needs to get back to running the country down the tubes as he has been, instead of making guest appearances on the talk shows.

Funny how he won't make an appearance on FOX News...could it be he would be questioned on his socialist policies, and no one would be slobbering all over him?

Obama has tried to display
His face on TV every day;
Sunday chats or "Late Night"
He'll take any invite
Though Fox-trots he'll put on DeLay.

the "Commander-in-Chief" tag commonly applied to goonited states emperors has no constitutional basis except with regard to the military -- a military supposed by the constitution to not be the permanent scourge of the current standing army.

President Obama was GREAT on Letterman last night.
The guy is SO smooth, intellegent, funny and charming that it drives the right wing CRAZY.
He has done more to set this country on the right path in 8 months - hell, it took Bush 8 years to detroy it.

It's ridiculous how much TV this guy does! I'm sick of seeing him doing television shows while America is staring down the barrel of a loaded gun. How long until he starts printing his face on money???

to "that's correct"-that's problem #1 with him-he is smooth-scarey smooth. As far as this racism crap goes, yes,he was black before the election-that's why he won!!! His "Camp" brings up this racism garbage as much as anybody else....move on people.

The problem of the last 8 years included the House and the Senate which he was apart of but he did vote present over 100 times because the man can't make a decision. Will he ever stop campaigning? No he will not because that is all he knows. George Soros is the man making the decision behind this little puppet. And Soros hates America.

Weak president. He's on tv so much that the networks might have his show of his own. So sick of seeing him that I don't even listen or watch him on tv.
