Who says President Obama doesn't transcend petty political differences?  He is uniting people like never before... against him.

In the latest case of individuals putting politics aside to bash Obama, Pat Buchanan--who disagrees with most everything the president does--and Gov. Ed Rendell, D-Pa., appeared on MSNBC yesterday and came to one sound conclusion: Obama should not go on "The View":

Rendell: I think there's got to be a little bit of dignity to the presidency.

Mika Brzezinski: What are you saying, Ed?

Willie Geist: What a horrible insult to "The View."

Rendell: I think there are some shows I wouldn't put him on, "Jerry Springer," too, right? ... I think the president of the United States has to go on serious shows. And "The View" is, you can make a case that it's a serious show, but it also rocks and rolls a little bit. I'm not sure he has to go on "The View" to be open to questions.

TV Newser reports that Obama will be taping his guest appearance with Babs Walters & her motley crew tomorrow for the show that will air Thursday. 

I just can't wait--finally a hard-hitting interview with a real journalist--you go, Joy Behar!
