Larry, I have noticed a great concern that is greatly contributing to the stall of our economic recovery. There are to many regulations contributing to oneself seeking employment. There are alot of companies wanting to hire qualified individuals, but can't, due to the fact he or she has one minor felony from 10 years ago. Or perhaps, someone went to a social gathering where a prankster laced some brownies with marajuana causing people to flunk a uranalises test 10 years ago. I know someone who obtained a D.U.I. mowing his lawn 5 years ago who blew a .04 (two beers) and can't obtain a job in the transportation industry or law enforcement. Should President Obama pass a forgiveness act for non habitual offenders and lower the price of fuel (which he can) we will be out of this economic mess and in full recovery in eight months. I guarentee you this.

Exactly a year ago, on June 4, 2009, President Obama delivered a major speech on the University of Cario, Egypt, promising a new policy to improve the situation of the Palestinian people. The world applauded it and hoped for a change.

Since then Israel attacked and bombed Gaza city, killing over 1,200 people, mostly women and children.
President Obama kept silent.
They used white phosphor bombs forbiden by international laws.
President Obama kept silent.
Israel starves the people of Gaza, the President has nothing to say.
This week Israel attacked civilian ships bringing badly needed aid to Gaza on international waters, killing 10 and wounding over 50 innocent and unarmed civilians, one of them a US citizen.
President Obama and Hillary Clinton have nothing to say, but feeble excuses that makes the world angry.

Mr. President, history will judge you not on what you say, but what you do!!
You were given great sympathy and credit, however you lost half of it by keeping silent on the crimes commited by Israel.
The world is crying for justice and you are in the position to do just that. Europe is asking, where are the promises a year ago, what must Israel do until the US acts.
Israel is not our friends, it sucks on our blood and uses us to further its aim, to conquer all of Palestina.

Autopsy's in Turkey on the 9 dead peace protesters brought there indicated 5 were executed by single shots to the head, one was a mere 2 centimeters between the machine gun muzzle to the skull of the victim.

One of the survivors stated hundreds of Israeli sailors attempted a zodiac assault raft attack to board the vessels which failed.

The Israeli's then fired hundreds of paint balls with glass shards inside of them which produced horrific soft flesh wounds.

Then the Israeli Commando's used helicopters to rappel down on the ships in the darkness, they were carrying M4 machine guns with a M203 Grenade launcher which they used to rake the decks and people with lethal 5.56mm rifle rounds.

Estimates are some 50 were wounded, 10 killed, 5 of the dead died from a single shot to the head, an American citizen was shot in the head and multiple places on his body as well among the dead.

Another American was shot in the face by a Israeli Commando's M4 Machine Gun using the M203 Grenade launcher to fire a tear gas canister right into his face. He lost his eye, but not his life.

Watching how horrible McCain (NO) and Sarah (Drill Baby Drill) Palin have acted the past 500 days, I'm certainly glad Democratic Obama-Biden is in office and a large number of nations around the world are absolutely happy that Obama is the President of the United States.

McCain-Palin would have likely already began a nuclear war against Iran, completely overturning any trust and friendship with Russia and Palin would lead the charge to totally close the Mexican-American border.

With the lack of qualified volunteers for future Republican planned wars around the world, a President John McCain would likely have reenacted a National Draft for future military service in order to have adequate numbers of soldiers for his future war zones.

At the height of the Health Care for America debate John McCain offered a 5,000 dollar insurance voucher which would likely only be good for claims of 10,000 dollars or more. A total rip-off and a slap across the faces of millions of Americas facing critical health concerns.

Sarah Palin then and now would be pressuring Congress and the US Senate to drill baby drill and open the pristine Alaska wildlife refuge ANWAR for future Spills baby Spills.

Yes, I'm glad President Obama is our president and those Republican's were soundly defeated and their gross visions of America's future did not become reality.

You have to keep a cool head when you are a President. You can't be seen to be losing your cool. The world is on their shoulders and you have to try and walk a mile in their shoes. They are always treading a fine line.

President Obama is trying to do his best under the most trying circumstances. He has got a lot on his young shoulders. Things cannot always just happen overnight. They may take a bit more time. We might all have to learn to be a bit more patient.

The Middle East issue will always be a bone of contention.

Firstly,I want to emphasize the importance of American's point of wiev
about security of all nations and in Bosnia,like in Iraq may be in Afghanistan,USA in order of priorities considered the crimes committed by the authoritarian administration against the innocent peoples and vulnerable minorities.Didn't they make military interference to prevent them making ethnic cleansing,mass destruction,massacres,using chemical weapons.ısrael committed all kind of above mentioned crimes.But Mr.Obama have said the Isarel had the right to defend themselves.İf you mean so,then Saddam had the same right to defend his soil.Was he right to exterminate so great masses like he did in Halepçe.Milosevic would be supported by his western allies or would he be emboldened to intensify the impact of their armed assaults against mostly muslim settled areas for eradicating their race .Would they be justified by mr President.

A new flotilla carrying humanitarian for Gaza is ready to arrive today.
Its lead ship carries the irish flag and the name: RACHEL CORRIE!
Those who do not know who she was: she was an american of jewish faith and during 2003, when Israel destroyed houses in south Gaza, protested against this barbaric act.
Israeli buldozers simply rolled over her.

On board of this ship is a Nobel Prize winner, an ex vice-chef of UN and other dignitaries. We must wait and see if Israel will kill a few of those unarmed civilians to proove how tough they are. It sure takes a lot of courage to shoot into a crowd of unarmed people.

This bloodshedding can be seen in the jewish history.
When the jewish tribes conquered Moab and Jericho, they killed every men, women and children to make sure they will never have to fight them again. Please read the Bible for confirmation.
This was done in the name of Jewa, the jewish God. That God must be very bloodthirsty if he wants people wiped out,

I encourage everyone to write to our president. Our government needs to stop relying on B.P.! Here is a letter I wrote earlier today...
Dear Mr. President,
I have spent the last hour reviewing the web site for some information about what our government is doing to clean up the Gulf oil spill. I found the site filled with words such as "access the situation", "monitor and support" and "collect and review. With all due respect Mr. President collecting, monitoring, reviewing, and accessing is not stopping the oil or repairing the damage already done. The Gulf Coast is in a state of emergency and as a resident of this area I implore you to do something more. PLEASE save our beautiful Gulf Coast.
A Gulf Coast Resident

Being honest and cool headed will it work ? Obama truly believe tries and could deliver but his hands are tired by lobbyist and special self serving serving groups.Obama could have turned the foreign policies in the Middle East and for the rest of the world but it was Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu indirectly said ..... you ! not only to Obama, United States, UN but to all the Western world. No one did a thing why ? How much longer can Israel rely on the US & the West collective guilt trip over the Holocaust?Yes it was truly a terrible act of genocide took place in Germany not the Middle East but does this give Israelis a reason to perpetrate similar atrocities towards the Palestinians? After all Gaza could be described as a giant ghetto or concentration camp of Hitler,where the residents are trapped but the IDF can enter anytime they like to do whatever they want to the population. This guilt trip has got to end and Israel has got to wake up to its responsibilities after all if they the (Israelis) are being attacked then there must be a damn good reason for it after all they committed a fair bit of bombing and atrocities before Israel was created in 1947.We in America unfortunately have the strongest Israeli lobby and our media is by who ?When will we ever learn we were not responsible for the Holocaust neither were the Muslims? Gaza is bleeding why won't Obama or other country help???? When will we ever learn ? Our service men and women have given there lives fighting wars in Europe and now in the Middle East. We have no jobs our pockets are empty yet we keep sending trillions of our tax dollars supporting Israel why ? Why are we so afraid ? Ooops... did I just break CNN house rules?

Hi Larry
I am from Holland and this is more of a technical question. A while ago I could watch a whole Larry King show of lets say a month ago on your website... unfortunately I have come here many times but first of all your blog is not very orderly (sorry I say this) so when I want to see in 2 minutes which show was when I cannot.
I have to scroll down, go to previous pages... on and on to see what is what... very time consuming and still not what I'm looking for. Cause whenever I find a show that I REALLLYYY want to watch, I just get a preview... This show for example... I just see 2 minutes here, and another 2 minutes on another post of yours but where can I see the whole show??

Best regards,

Kay   June 7th, 2010 2:18 am ET

I would like to view the whole interview that Larry King conducted with President Obama. How do I do that thru Larry King Live? Thank you.

David   June 7th, 2010 3:09 pm ET

To the Officers of CNN:

At some point will the Obama LKL interview in its entirety be available on your website? I find it very helpful when the other networks make different broadcasts available to view online. I think this could be a significant area of revenue on a go forward basis. Please provide feedback on this post...



George Courtney   June 9th, 2010 10:06 pm ET

When will this show be repeated

Mike Smith   June 15th, 2010 1:09 pm ET

Mr. King, it is really a shame to America and us Americans to see that President Obama and his administration are not doing anything to free the US lawyer Peter Erlinder who is about to die in Rwandan prison. We all pay taxes so that the government protects us and I've learned that USA donate 230 millions in us dollars every year to Rwanda. I really think somebody needs to resign or get fired and I am thinking that would be Hillary Clinton since she is the chief of diplomacy and has not done anything yet. It's been about 3 weeks that Peter is in jail for nothing and our administration is just watching. The USA is not a world power anymore and it is very very sad to see a us citizen tax payer dying in a prison just like this. Seriously, president Obama needs to think about it.
