The worst part about pandering for votes is that even after a candidate becomes president, he has to keep doing it. (2:59)

HE'S SINGING AND I CAN'T GET OUT!

BUT HERE'S THE WORST PART.

HERE'S THE WORST PART ABOUT ALL THIS PANDERING FOR BOTH-- THE SPEAKING SPANISH, THE SINGING.

ONCE YOU BECOME PRESIDENT YOU HAVE TO KEEP DOING IT.

EXHIBIT A., WHILE NEWT AND MITT ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL, BARACK OBAMA WAS CONDUCTING A VIRTUAL

TOWN HALL ON GOOGLE PLUS-- YES,

GOOGLE PLUS.

OR AS ALL GMAIL USERS KNOW IT,

WHAT THE ( BLEEP ) IS THAT THING UP THERE?

IS THERE ANY WAY I CAN TURN THAT OFF?

ACTUALLY, I GIVE THE PRESIDENT CREDIT FOR DOING A WEBCAST.

A RISKY MOVE GIVEN THE LIKELIHOOD THAT ONE OF THOSE WINDOWS WILL POP UP WITH A

SHIRTINGLY JOE BIDEN.

"HEY, WHO'S READY TO PARTY, HUH,

HUH?" ( LAUGHTER ) DURING THE CHAT, THE PRESIDENT

WAS IN FULL-ON CAMPAIGN MODE WITH A WARM GREETING FOR EVERY QUESTIONER.

>> I'M FROM FORT WORTH TEXAS AND I HAVE TWO BEAUTIFUL GIRLS.

NICE TO MEET YOU.

>> YOU CAN'T BEAT DAUGHTERS.

( LAUGHTER ) ( APPLAUSE )

>> Jon: DO YOU REALLY HAVE TO REMIND PEOPLE THAT THEY CAN'T-- THAT THEY CAN'T BEAT DAUGHTERS?

THAT SEEMS ODD THAT YOU FEEL COMPELLED-- I HAVE TWO BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTERS.

"WELL, YOU CAN'T BEAT THEM.

YOU JUST CAN'T." THE CHAT MOSTLY BOILED DOWN TO,

"SO, MR. PRESIDENT, HELP ME." SOMETIMES ON A SURPRISINGLY MICROLEVEL.

>> MY HUSBAND HAS AN ENGINEERING DEGREE WITH OVER 10 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE, AND HE WAS LAID OFF

THREE YEARS AGO AND HAS YET TO FIND A PERMANENT JOB IN HIS FIELD.

>> IF YOU SEND ME YOUR HUSBAND'S RESUME, I'D BE INTERESTED IN

FINDING OUT EXACTLY WHAT'S HAPPENING RIGHT THERE.

( LAUGHTER )

>> Jon: YOU'RE TAKING RESUMES?

DON'T YOU HAVE ( BLEEP ) TO DO.

AREN'T THERE OTHER THINGS TO YOUR PLATE.

MR. PRESIDENT, THE RUSSIANS ARE ABOUT TO LAUNCHIMISMS.

"DID YOU KNOW CARL WAS PROFICIENT IN XCEL.

>> IT SUMMED UP WHAT PEOPLE EXPECT FROM THEIR PRESIDENT, HOW MUCH.

IT WAS WHAT HAPPENED RIGHT AFTER THAT.

>> YOU JUST SPOKE OF LAWS.

I I WAS WONDERING IF YOU COULD STAND UP AND GIVE US A LITTLE JIG REAL QUICK.

>> NO DANCING.

>> Jon: THE PRESIDENT JUST OFFERED TO FIND YOUR HUSBAND A JOB.

( LAUGHTER ) HE SAID, "WHY DON'T YOU SEND ME

THE RESUME." HE'S SERVING AS THE MONSTER.COM-IN-CHIEF.

( LAUGHTER ) AND I BELIEVE YOUR RESPONSE

SHOULD BE, "THAT IS ( BLEEP ) AWESOME, THANK YOU."

NOT, "OH, WHILE WE'RE HERE..." ( BLEEP )

( LAUGHTER ) ( APPLAUSE ) UNBELIEVABLE.

SINCE YOU WON'T DO IT, I KNOW A GOLDEN-VOICED MORMON WHO WILL.

WE'LL B
