President Obama took direct aim at the maker of the anti-Islamic film his administration is using as a scapegoat for bad Middle Eastern policy on his most recent Letterman appearance, calling him a "shadowy character." Obama did not offer a defense of free speech when talking about the subject of ongoing rioting in the Middle East and yes, the President turned down a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benajamin Netanyahu recently but found time to do a Letterman appearance in campaign season. Tonight, Obama will attend a fundraiser hosted by mega-celebrities Jay-Z and Beyonce.
