Obama won't speak night of 'Lost' premiere

The Associated Press
Good news for fans of "Lost" -- the president doesn't plan to mess up the television show's season premiere.

White House spokesman Robert Gibbs says he doesn't foresee a scenario in which President Barack Obama's State of the Union address will fall on Feb. 2, the same night the show's final season debuts.

The State of the Union is traditionally held at the end of January, but there have been rumors that the White House could move the speech to early February in hopes of having a health care bill in hand.

Gibbs says a date for the address will be announced soon.

I agree with the people about how pathetic, and dumbed down so many people are becoming...

Obama better NOT give a rats patootie about whether people want to watch their tv. show or not...

JRM2..."The President doesn't give a rat's petootie about a television premier over something as important as a state of the union address and neither should you no matter who is in office."...

Boy, that's the truth...I don't care if any of you hate the Presidents guts...WE ALL depend on others, and our country for our survival and livlihoods...Get a clue!...

I still remembered when President Carter interrupted the premiere of Battlestar Galactica to tell us we were suffering from a malaise.

Once again, a reminder of what the American public's true priorities are. We are rapidly achieving the government, and the overall society, that we deserve. Ugh.

>It's not like he's going to say anything of value. The State of the Union speech is just a big propaganda party. I'd rather watch reruns of Lost instead of that mindless political babble.

Um, just to let you know, Dumbya is no longer the President, thankfully. PRESIDENT Obama is far better than his immediate predecessor, who's probably out clearing brush at his little "ranch", even as we speak.

If any of you believe for one second that the President moved his state of the union speech to accommodate the premier of "Lost" you are badly stricken with celebrity psychosis.

The President doesn't give a rat's petootie about a television premier over something as important as a state of the union address and neither should you no matter who is in office.

The dumbing down of America persists

This is what we've devolved to: a president acceding to the wishes of fans of a television show by moving a national address. Time was networks postponed their scheduled programming, as the president's statements were deemed vital to the interests of the nation. I guess the president has lost (no pun intended) too much "star power." I hope nothing vital to America's interests and safety happens on the days of the Super Bowl, the World Series, the Final Four, or the NBA Championship.

I knew I voted for the right guy!

This outcome was only logical. Sure, the President must present his vision and strategies for fortifying this country's economy, education, health and safety. But could he also provide us the answers this country desperately needs as to whether faith triumphs over science, whether destiny can be changed, whether Ben ...is good or evil, whether Kate belongs with Jack or Sawyer, all while traveling through time? I think not, and he came to the same conclusion.
