Why doesnt Obama ever answer his critics, and go on the Rush Limbaugh show in an exclusive interview?

It would be the perfect opportunity for him to catch us all at the same time.

    It's because Obama only gives interviews when he knows the outcome will favor him. In other words, Rush will ask him legitimate questions and Obama can't afford to look bad.

    Edit: He would get 20 to 25 million people and probably way more if it was known that Obama was going on Rush;Plus all the news media would be listening there can be no doubt. Comparing that to MS NBC or CNN is a joke as there audience is nonexistent.

    Because it would be degrading to both the President and the Office of the President for Obama to appear at ANY venue featuring the "fat boy". This is why the President doesn't appear at female mud wrestling exhibits or porn movie premiers. Some events (and people) are so tasteless and vulgar that mere association with them is scandalous.

    Not that this is an excuse for Obama, but can't remember the last time a president did such a thing.

    Also, Rush is not one to take people up on their offers. Several have challenged him, and he's always declined or ignored.

    I am an Obama critic and I don't listen to Limbaugh. Wouldn't get everyone. It would get like 20 million people. That is maybe 1/10th of Obama's critics.

    Because Limbaugh wouldn't let Obama use his teleprompter, so Obama would naturally be dumbfounded.

    He's the president of the United States. He's too busy to go on radio shows, especially shows where the host is hostile to him.

    I think Obama should go on Bill O'Reilly. And when O'Reilly interrupts him, talks over him, and tells him to shut up, Obama should pop him one! I'd pay to see that! Whatever they were advertising that day, I'd go out and buy it!

    Because the President is only interviewed by journalists and serious people.

    Because all political debates wind up as two guys spouting topics they know will rile up their uninformed and ignorant following.

    Same reason you don't stick your hand in a meat grinder.
