What questions should Jay Leno ask Obama?

President Obama is taping an appearance on The Tonight Show this afternoon, and Jay Leno is getting suggestions for questions. It’s possible the interview parameters are “no holds barred” — with the exception of any questions containing the words “Fort” or “Hood,” “Ben” or “ghazi,” “labor force” or “participation rate,” “skyrocketing” or “premium,” “Lois” or “Lerner” and “Fast” or “Furious.”

Motorists driving this afternoon in Los Angeles are being advised that they might reach their destinations about the same time Obama arrives back in Washington.

Another appearance on a late-night comedy show is part of the Obama administration’s “effort to expand the presidency’s media outreach more widely than ever.” Because it’s not as if a president can just snap his fingers and speak in primetime on every network whenever he wants. Wait, never mind.

While other presidents limited themselves to more traditional approaches such as speeches, news conferences and interviews with the mainstream media, Obama has moved deep into new areas as he tries to communicate most effectively with the country.

His appearance on Leno’s show will be his fourth since taking office and his sixth when his visits as a U.S. senator and presidential candidate are included. Until Obama took office, incumbent presidents didn’t visit the late-night comedy shows, considering such appearances below the stature of the president.

One person’s “expanded outreach” is another person’s “desperate attempt to avoid questions about phony scandals.”

We probably won’t hear any jokes like these in the monologue, but you never know:
