Traffic and weather, then the president

Will the office of the President of the United States ever recover from Obama?

It baffles and saddens me that this administration, and its Grand Poobah, jump at appearances on late night television, day time talk shows, and black 'urban adult contemporary' radio shows.  Is there no end to the diminishing of our highest office?

Jay Carney, and his predecessors in this White House, are noted for rarely calling on any reporter beyond the second row in the WH Briefing Room.  But Tom Joyner gets an interview:
President Obama thinks Martin Luther King Jr. would have supported Obamacare if he were still alive, he said in an interview that aired Tuesday.

“Oh, he would like that,” Obama said, after being asked for his thoughts on King's views on his signature health care law. “Well, because I think he understood that health care, health security is not a privilege; it’s something that in a country as wealthy as ours, everybody should have access to.” The president's comments came in an interview on “The Tom Joyner Show,”
Little about MLK or the ideals set forth in his most famous speech indicate that he would have been anything other than sickened by this most divisive and race-baiting president. 

Regardless, why in the hell is the president granting interviews to a morning drive-time radio show?

I wonder if they got him to do a prank call or give away some concert tickets.
