Pres. Obama: “I Don’t Find Most of the Cable Chatter Persuasive”

BW_6.2.JPGDuring tonight’s NBC News special “Inside the Obama White House,” as the president and Brian Williams were driving to get burgers, Williams asked Pres. Obama whether when he’s watching cable TV and lands on a news channel and sees a debate underway about him, does he stop and watch?

I generally don’t. Mainly because I don’t find most of the cable chatter very persuasive. I’ve used this analogy before, it feels like WWF wrestling. Everybody’s got their role to play. I know a lot of these guys. And if Pat Buchanan is having a conversation with Chris Matthews or talking to Keith Olbermann, everybody’s got their set pieces and, so, I don’t feel as if I’m learning anything from the debate.

Part II of “Inside the Obama White House” tomorrow on NBC at 9pmET/PT will include the Obama family.
