Palin: 'No Time to Visit Border ... Lots of Time to Chat on 'The View.' ALSO: Did Obama Lie About Not Knowing Who 'Snookie' Is?

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin tweeted her opinions of President Barack Obama's interview on "The View" this morning.

Palin wrote: "President with no time to visit porous US/Mexican border to offer help to those risking life to secure us, but lotso' (lots of) time to chat on 'The View?'"

A later tweet read: "I'm headed to border in near future... let's see how quickly his travel schedule will allow that border visit after all."

While on "The View," Obama spoke on a variety of topics ranging from the unemployment rate and the war in Afghanistan, to Lindsay Lohan and what he plays in his iPod.

Meghan McCain, daughter to former presidential candidate Senator John McCain, also had some critiques of the president's daytime TV appearance. She wrote on her Daily Beast blog, "I found the president's appearance pretty predictable and his answers very rehearsed. I mean, how many times can he talk about how he has Jay-Z on his iPod? This was something emphasized at great length during the election to prove how hip he was. ... I don't care what the president currently has downloaded on his iPod."

Obama Even Lies About Unimportant Stuff, Like Not Knowing Who 'Snookie' Is?

Barack Obama has been caught in a contradiction. Asked about Jersey Shore star Snooki on The View today, the President replied, "I don't know who that is." But two months ago he knew who she was! Nitpicky video analysis ahead.

Asked for his opinion on Snooki (who voted for John McCain) the president claimed ignorance. But two months ago he dropped Snooki's name in a White House Press Correspondents Dinner punchline about a health care provision named in honor of the hit MTV show. "It [the provision] reads, 'The following individuals shall be excluded from the indoor tanning tax within this bill: Snooki, JWOWW, The Situation and House minority leader John Boehner.'" So which is it, Obama? Do you know Snooki, or don't you? Clearly, this is the Watergate of our time, and America demands an answer.

We believe there are three possible explanations for Snooki-gate:

1. He forgot Snooki. (Which is odd, because she's the kind of person who tends to get seared into your mind forever.)

2. He is as ashamed of partaking in television's guiltiest pleasure as you are. His ignorance on The View was feigned.

3. Obama's famously hip speechwriters got ahead of him and dropped a cultural reference he didn't understand for the sake of Beltway chuckles. He recited the joke without getting it, and promptly forgot its context as soon as it was over.

  1. I LOVE this!!! Snooki-gate! It is just another example of him lying to the American public. If the tele-prompter had been in place, it would have picked up on the discrepancy, and never would have allowed The Annointed One to slip like he did, when left on his own, to ad lib (yeah...right...)

    Obama simply should not leave (America's, not his) home without his tele-prompter.
