The president on Sunday joined
fugitive host David Gregory for an exclusive chat ahead of the so-called fiscal cliff deadline. It marked Obama’s 11th time on MTP, but only his second as president. The first came in September 2009, when Obama was selling his comprehensive health-care reform plan. This time, he’s not so much selling specific policy or an immediate action on the fiscal cliff as he is selling himself as the only rational man in Washington DC, something he’s tried to impart on the nation for four years.
