Fun With Obama

Filed under: Humor,Obama — DRJ @ 8:43 pm



[Guest post by DRJ]

President Obama loves to blame President Bush and Republicans for every problem, including this example from a recent San Francisco fundraiser:

“Even in the midst of a difficult and taxing health care fight, the president hasn’t lost his sense of humor–especially when making fun of his opponents. Last night at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in San Francisco, the president offered an analogy for opponents of Demcoratic [sic] reforms: when I’m cleaning up your mess, don’t tell me how to hold the mop…and don’t tell me the mop is socialist.”

Jay Leno saw the humor, too, although from a slightly different perspective:

  1. Like Barry ever held a mop in his life. He is at his most despicable, in my view, when he turns on the faux-folksy charm, and liberally (how else) sprinkles the conversation with “y’alls”.

  2. I laughed at that…

    I denounce myself as racist…

  3. I occasionally listen to Fox radio on Sirius, and today one of the hosts was asking, pseudo-rhetorically, where did he learn “Y’all.” It isn’t really that absurd of a question.

    Not in hawai’i
    Not in indonesia
    Not in Manhattan
    Not (likely) in Hyde Park, Chicago

    Anyhoo, it’s like when John Kerry lost his g’s – fishin, huntin, etc. Just fake politician talk.

  4. Y’all is one of those bitter clinger words.

  5. Carlitos, there’s one notable place Obama may have learned “ya’ll” (start at 0:42).

  6. Lefty comics making fun of Barry? Its all over but the whining.

  7. Don’t tell me this, and don’t tell me that. He sure does not care much for free speech.

    JD (109a3f)

  8. Thanks DRJ. You reminded why I left my last church. Seriously, why do they think I want politics on Sunday morning?

  9. Seriously, why do they think I want politics on Sunday morning?

    Hell, I don’t particularly want RELIGION on sunday, let alone politics…

  10. And he’s always so pleased with his little self when he does it. Same as his “hoodwinking” and “bamboozling” Denzel/Malcolm X schtick. He thinks he is killing, in comedic terms, and he is, to the assembled sycophants, but the rest of the country just goes “Are you kidding me?”
    The tipping point is coming, and he will not like it one bit, as thin as his skin is.

  11. there’s one notable place Obama may have learned “ya’ll”

    Beyond that, beyond the already documented “goddamn America” POV of Jeremiah Wright, I didn’t realize he — the former close spiritual advisor of the guy now in the White House — believed that Jesus Christ was a black man fighting against the oppressive white Italians (ie, Romans).

    There’s a saying that you can judge the character of a person by the friends he keeps. When it came to Obama, Wright to me was the ultimate, the hugest, canary in the coal mine imaginable. But enough American voters apparently wanted to goddamn themselves, and so now we’re goddamned.

  12. Not (likely) in Hyde Park, Chicago

    Or anywhere else, for that matter – Obama has never been, or will ever be, considered a real Chicagoan, no matter your political preference. He was cloistered the entire time he lived here, and the guy probably couldn’t even do a passable Dennis Franz “Nortwest Side” accent to save his life.

  13. Obama probably never had a Beer and a Brat with anyone not on Ayers’ flunky list.

    PCD (ba8fe0)

  14. Add Leno to Obama’s enemies list.

  15. 13. Is that your litmus test for presidential success? God help you.

    bells bells (08dac2)

  16. What is this litmus test you speak of, hells bells?

    JD (304527)

  17. Who the president is eating brats and drinking beer with. Keep up, JD. Read all comments before asking questions next time.

    bells bells (08dac2)

  18. Oh good Allah. We really deserve a better class of trolls.

    JD (304527)

  19. I didn’t realize it was my job to make sure that your reading comprehension is up to snuff. If that is my job and I am what you call a troll, then I guess your qualifications are a bit high.

    bells bells (08dac2)

  20. PCD’s litmus exclusion test (comment 13) would be an easy test to pass. Almost everyone but a very few have share food with folks who are NOT on Ayers’ flunky list. Racist JD (as opposed to racist racist JD) reads pretty well.

    Ira (28a423)

  21. In comment 20, “share” should be “shared.”

    Ira (28a423)

  22. Only a conservative site would use the word ‘racist’ as an ongoing joke.

    bells bells (08dac2)

  23. bels bells – Overwrought liberals yelling “raaaaasicm!” haven’t been a jokes for years?

  24. ROFL. God bless Jay Leno.

  25. Only a conservative site would use the word ‘racist’ as an ongoing joke.

    Comment by bells bells

    I have noticed a distinct lack of jokes on lefty sites. They thought they were making jokes about Bush and Cheney and Palin but those were weird little “jokes” of the sort you hear from the slightly Asbergy guy who never gets the real joke. He usually asks, “Get it?” when he finishes. That’s how you know he’s gotten to the end.

    hells bells, humor is a complicated subject and I doubt you would understand.

  26. Racism is sacred and holy and eternal to dirty socialists. Alpha and Omega. They’re stunted like that.

    happyfeet (f62c43)

  27. Why has hells run away from the challenge that he issued on the later thread?

    Dmac (5ddc52)

  28. Seemed rather mild to me. I’ll wait for him to give his Obama jokes more zing…..

  29. Wonder if the Thugs have beaten on fatboy Leno yet. Next week I expect he’ll be back in BO buttkissin’ mode!
