President Obama will make a rare Sunday show appearance this week, sitting for an interview with ABC News' "This Week."
According to the network, the interview will include a discussion of Syria, the looming showdown with Congress over the federal budget and debt ceiling, the implementation of ObamaCare and the state of the economy five years after the collapse of Lehman Brothers.
The president has customarily avoided the Sunday show circuit. When he appeared late last year on "Meet the Press" during his reelection campaign, it was the first time in more than three years he had appeared on one of the shows. In 2009, the president sat for a series of Sunday show interview to build support for his health care reform plan.
"This Week" host George Stephanopoulos is soliciting questions to ask the president via the show's Twitter account.
