"I am letting you know now: Y'all probably will not be invited to Sasha or Malia's wedding either."


-- Barack Obama on ABC's "The View" Thursday morning, explaining to Barbara, Whoopi, et al, why he doesn't feel bad about his non-vite to Rhinebeck this weekend. ("It would be tough enough having one president at your wedding, you don't want two presidents... Hillary and Bill properly want to keep this as a thing for Chelsea.")

What a waste of time for the President. I don't know ANYONE who watches the view but I do know friends who watch Mad Men. Could this be next on his "busy" schedule ?

No doubt the Clintons asked him if he wanted to be invited and they all decided that it would turn into more of a circus (than it already is) if he did. No doubt the Clintons were relieved because Hillary is still going to run again for President and wouldn't want to have an additional personal link to Obama. My question is, why didn't they ever get Chelsea's teeth fixed? She always looks like she's holding a mouth full of marbles.
