The Class Clown in Chief: Trying to Joke When Unemployment is at 9.2% … Barack Obama Makes Joke About Richard Cordra Confirmation Process and No One Laughs


Mr. President … No one is laughing. How bad is a joke when one must remind people that what you said was a joke?

A note to President Barack Obama … there is nothing in today’s environment when we have 9.2% unemployment, millions of people out of work, rising gas prices, continues home foreclosures and a debt limit out of control. With all this, the most out of touch president since Jimmy Carter decides to joke around during the discussion of the confirmation process of  Richard Cordra. Real funny Mr. President. Obviously, you can see that no one is laughing.

It turns out that the only joke was Barack Obama and the terrible fact that ultimately the 2008 presidential election joke has been on America and its hardly funny.


That’s why all his confirmation — all the answers at his confirmation hearings will be in a form of a question,” Obama said to silence.

“That’s a joke,” he reminded the audience.

At least we know that after 2012, Obama won’t be out of a job, he can always host a late night comedy show. Obviously, he is the funniest person alive, in his own mind.

The occasion, yet another job changing hands in an administration where turnover has been high, would hardly be a laughing matter for most presidents. But President Obama, living up to his well-earned reputation as guffaw-getter, cracked a real knee slapper. The only problem is that no one from the press corps, which had gathered for the formal announcement, was laughing.

      The biggest joke is the guy he is nominating here. He could not get reelected here in Ohio as our State AG so he goes to Washington where they are hiring democraps and gets nominated by the head democrap in charge. What a POS.

      He’s sucks at hoops. He sucks even worse at golf. And yet we found something he’s even worse at…presidency and comedian.

      #1 I agree…this coward was the lawyer of the nitwits that snooped on Joe the Plumber.

      To me; this is too much of coincidence. This is payback for doing what Obama wanted him to do in helping those that snooped on Joe most likely at the direction of Obama or someone in his administration. Joe made Obama look bad on national TV when he called him out and Obama wanted payback and to diminsh him.

      What does it say when the POTUS can’t even get polite laughter.

      Here’s something funny (and too true…especially those about Obama). Check out all the cartoons on this site. They are pretty intense. Not like what we see in America!

      As for cartoons, Obama is kinda like a bad cartoon, isn’t he?

      Actually that wasn’t silence. The audience didn’t respond, so what? Next,the unemployment rate has nothing to do with the story.
      I get it, you don’t like Obama, right?
      SM: Now, you dont get it … there was silence, have some more Kool-aid.

      The biggest joke of all is the current Commander in Chief.

      Not sure if Romney will pull through though, so I am terrified to think of the alternative. Is America sick and tired enough of a rotten economy and still no good jobs in sight?

      The best of times, the worst of times—-America wants a change and does not want to get bullshitted for a second time. Have to say, we were not but so many I know who voted for Obama are NOT HAPPY and admit they made a mistake. While they claim him to be likeable- many agree he just does not have the experience necessary and are running this Country in to the ground.

      More than just an average case of buyers remorse.
