Barack Obama on 'The View' Show

President Obama appears on daytime talk show The View.

Barack Obama on 'The View' ShowUS President Barack Obama is to appear on daytime talk show The View, where he reflected on challenges he has faced.

President Barack Obama replied “where do I begin here?” when asked how difficult his first 20 months in office have been, as he made the first appearance by a sitting US president on a daytime television chat show.

During a taped appearance on ABC's "The View", which is presented by a panel of women including veteran journalist Barbara Walters and actress Whoopi Goldberg, the president was asked to reflect on the challenge he has faced so far.

He said they included "a non-stop effort to restart the economy, we have also had the oil spill, we have also had two wars, we have also had a pandemic – H1N1 that we had to manage”.

The president also praised his daughters Malia, 12, and Sasha, 9, saying they were "full of ideas, and opinions and observations – it's just a great age".

The president has received some criticism for appearing on a show more commonly associated with celebrity interviews. Ed Rendell, a fellow Democrat and governor of Pennsylvania, said it was unbecoming of the office.

“I think the president should be accessible, should answer questions that aren’t pre-screened, but I think there should be a little bit of dignity to the presidency.

“I wouldn’t put him on Jerry Springer either, it is different a little bit. But I think the president of the United States has to go on serious shows,” he said.
