Is this the job of the president of the United States?

By Diana West

"It all just went by in a flash: The very first TV interview Barack Obama gave as president went to Saudi — backed, Dubai-based Al-Arabiya television. Missed it? The interview aired too late Monday night to make the morning papers (in most of the United States, anyway), transforming its initial burst of coverage into a second-day follow-up story (at least in the United States). It was as if the people (Americans) who put Obama into office were so much, well, chopped liver."
