How bad has it got for President Barack Obama and the IRS scandal? Even SNL could not avoid the scandal and mocked President Obama and his comments following his learning of the IRS targeting the Tea Party and other Conservative groups. Seth Meyers and Amy Poehler did their “Really!?! with Seth and Amy skit. Although they also took shots at the Tea Party, it was nothing compared to their mocking of the IRS and Barack Obama. Some of the better lines, “Really!?!, the government only keeps you around to make the DMV look good”. Wow, when even Saturday Night Live feels the obligation to make fun of a liberal president,
Houston, Barack, you got a problem.
But the money line was, “And, really Obama you found out about this scandal from TV? You found out from TV? Really? I don’t want to live in a world where you have the same sources as my aunt!”
Really!?! Mr. President, you found out about the IRS scandal from the news media, too bad the White House Counsel was told weeks ago. So you are telling us they never told you, REALL!?! Who is running the show and what do you have working for you?
In the week of April 22, the Office of the White House Counsel and its head, Kathryn Ruemmler, were told by Treasury Department attorneys that an inspector general’s report was nearing completion, the White House official said. In that conversation, Ms. Ruemmler learned that “a small number of line IRS employees had improperly scrutinized certain…organizations by using words like ‘tea party’ and ‘patriot,’ ” the official said.
Jay Leno is making Barack Obama the brunt of his jokes again. This time he compares Obama to Richard Nixon. These days it is easy to use Obama as fodder for late night show comedy. However, for many who have been on the other end of the Obama Benghazi, IRS and AP scandals are probably not laughing. So many in the MSM wanted to say that Obama was Reaganesque and Lincolnesque, to their dismay he turned out to be “Nixonian”.
“It’s been a rough week for Obama. A lot of critics are comparing President Obama to President Richard Nixon. Which is unfair. Nixon’s unemployment rate was only 5%.”
Just to prove Jay Leno correct, the weekly new unemployment claims were just announced today and they were up to 32,000 to 360,000.
The number of people who applied for new unemployment benefits surged by 32,000 to 360,000 in the week ended May 11, putting jobless claims at the highest level in a month and a half, according to the U.S. Labor Department. Economists surveyed by MarketWatch had expected claims to rise to a seasonally adjusted 330,000 from a revised 328,000 in the prior week. A Labor official said there was nothing unusual in the report and there was no evidence that reductions in federal spending under a law known as the sequester contributed to the spike.
The death of true comedy …
Legendary comic and impersonator Jonathan Winters has passed away at his home in Montecito, California at age 87. The world just got a little less funny with his passing. Jonathan Winters was simply hysterical. Remember an era of comedy that was not mean spirited, laced with profanity and witty, neither do I. But during Winters’ era it was. Winters was a comic genius who could switch in and out of character impersonations like we switch a light switch or today’s generations change their Facebook status, tweet or text. Winters inspired generations of improve comics, probably none better than Robbin Williams. And as fate would have it, Winters would later have a role on Williams’ popular TV show ‘Mork & Mindy’ VIDEO) as his son Merth. However, I remember Winters best for his role in It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World. Just priceless comedy. The gas station scene (VIDEO) with Winters and Fred Silver … just too funny. This movie just never gets old. And who can forget when Jonathon Winters was a special guest crime solving with the Scooby Doo gang (VIDEO) where he played himself, Jonathan Winters, the not so famous comedian, hahaha. We shall miss you.
Jonathan Winters, November 11, 1925 – April 11, 2013 - RIP
Mr. Winters was at his best when winging it, confounding television hosts and luckless straight men with his rapid-fire delivery of bizarre observations uttered by characters like Elwood P. Suggins, a Midwestern Everyman, or one-off creations like the woodland sprite who bounded onto Jack Paar’s late-night show and simperingly proclaimed: “I’m the voice of spring. I bring you little goodies from the forest.”
A one-man sketch factory, Mr. Winters could re-enact Hollywood movies, complete with sound effects, or create sublime comic nonsense with simple props like a pen-and-pencil set.
The unpredictable, often surreal quality of his humor had a powerful influence on later comedians like Robin Williams but made him hard to package as an entertainer. His brilliant turns as a guest on programs like “The Steve Allen Show” and “The Tonight Show” — in both the Jack Paar and Johnny Carson eras — kept him in constant demand. But a successful television series eluded him, as did a Hollywood career, despite memorable performances in films like “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World,” “The Loved One” and “The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming.”

Sarah Palin Fires up the Crowds at CPAC as the Mama Grizzley & Hockey Mom Pokes Fun at the Left with her Big Gulp
Former Alaska Governor and Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin brought down the house at CPAC 2013 as only she can and at the same time brought the LEFT to utter madness. After making a joke about gun rights, gun racks, and guns Sarah took the opportunity to pause and took a swig from her Big Gulp. Obviously a not so vale slap at the NYC Mayor Bloomberg and his over-reaching policies. Palin certainly has a way to get a dig in. What’s funny is that the LEFT still cannot get over this woman as she continues to just drive them up the wall. Case and point is that the below video was from a Lefty site where they thought she was offensive. A note to the LEFT, sometimes its just ok to laugh at something that is funny.
SNL Mocks Obama and his Sequester Armegeddon Exaggerations … Obama Admits, “I Really Have No Idea How Money Works” (VIDEO)
Every once in a while when SNL decides to take Barack Obama to task and mock him for his actions, they hit it out of the park …
This weekend was just one of those times when during one of their skits they skewered Obama for his exaggerations of Armageddon and the apocalypse following the sequestration taking effect. Over the weekend, Saturday Night Live’sPresident Barack Obama tried to put a human face on the effects of sequestration — a difficult task, he admitted to the nation, because “I really have no idea how money works or budgets work.” As we always say, what makes humor more humorous is when there as truth added. I think many can admit that Barack Obama has no idea how money works or budgets either. With out of control spending, no budget and no clue, SNL nailed it. However, the only thing that SNL failed to mention is that the sequester was Obama’s idea. So for all his whining, belly aching and blaming of others, Obama needs to look no further than into the mirror to place blame and America is beginning to realize it. Maybe that’s why suddenly Obama and his minions have back-tracked at their claims of the end of times due to sequestration.
From The Blaze:
Saturday Night Live’s President Barack Obama tried to put a human face on the effects of sequestration — a difficult task, he admitted to the nation, because “I really have no idea how money works or budgets work.”
But everyone’s making sacrifices, he said — “Michelle will only do four television appearances a week, down from her usual 75.”
Bringing up a parade of federal workers to explain the toll the forced budget cuts will take on their jobs, one Border Patrol agent said they’ll now have to let every 10th Mexican across the border, while an astronaut said their helmets will no longer have glass in the front and they’ll have to hold their breaths when they do spacewalks.
It wasn’t all bad news, though: One schoolteacher was actually delighted she lost her job and doesn’t have to teach “Beowulf” to nightmare teenagers anymore.
YIKES, Easily the Worst Basketball Free Throw Shot in History Courtesy of Appalachian State’s Center Brian Okam … “Good Lord”
This might be the promo for the next Southwest commercial … Wanna Get Away?
I had previously thought that the worst free throw shot I had ever seen was in the movie ‘Hoosiers’ when Ollie of Hickory badly missed his underhand free throw. Of course that was a movie, the following was not. This poor guy is never going to live this one down. From the viral video below comes Brian Okam of Appalachian State and easily the worst free throw ever … “GOOD LORD”!!!
Liberal Comedian Jammie Foxx Thinks its Funny to Joke About Killing Whitey, “I kill all the white people in the room” … How Great and Black is That? (VIDEO)
SHAMEFUL DOUBLE STANDARD … Welcome to Obamaland where reverse racism is deemed perfectly ok. This is the divisive crap that America is going to have to put up with.
Who knew it was funny to joke about killing whitey? It would appear Saturday Night Live, Jammie Foxx and the audience did. Foxx’s entire monologue was based upon, “How black is that”. Foxx began by saying, “I am dressed in black, because its good to be black. Black is the new white.” He then went on to say the following “kill whitey” comment that drew cheers from the audience. UNREAL. Imagine if a white actor/comedian said it was great to kill blacks people? Just imagine.
“I got a new movie coming out ‘Django Unchained’. And in the movie I got to wear chains, how whack is that. But don’t be worried about it because in the movie I get out of the chains. I get free. I save my wife and I kill all the white people in the movie. How great is that? And how black is that”?
Some one might need to remind Jammie Foxx, the folks at SNL and those who ignorantly laughed at Foxx’s jokes of some words from a far more famous and influential black person than Jammie Foxx or Barack Obama. Obviously Jammie Foxx has no character.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. (Martin Luther King, Jr.)
”I kill all the white people in the room” … How great is That?
It is truly sad that people of color are making color such a big issue. I thought that liberals wanted there to be no color barrier and all people should be treated the same? So then why do they keep bring the issue of color up? Imagine, just imagine what would be said of a white, Tea Party comedian who’s routine was based upon “how white is that” referenced killing all the black people in the room? They would be branded a racist, a member of the KKK and fired. How sad is it that Democrats continue with the racially divisive speak? If I did not know better I would almost say they are baiting folks into a race war. Just curious, had Romney won the 2012 election would it have been ok to say that “white is the new black”?
Pumpkin carving with fire arms … this is just too good. Reminds me of of target shooting getting my hand gun conceal carry permit and making smiley faces.
Sorry, I had to add the following one as well.
Mitt Romney Steals the Show at Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner … “president’s remarks tonight are brought to you but the letter ‘O’ and the number $16 trillion”
Last night we witnessed the lighter side of politics as Mitt Romney and Barack Obama appeared at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation dinner … in the end, Romney NAILED IT!!! Guess what America, Romney is not a stiff, wooden robot. He is actually funny and real.
America witnessed yet another Romney myth go by the wayside. Romney stiff, not funny, can’t relate to Americans or make fun of himself? HARDLY. Watch the VIDEO below as Romney owned the room and actually beat Obama at his own game … telling jokes and yucking it up. Romney was on his game and Obama, well, many of Barack’s lines and jokes fell flat.
Mitt Romney … Guess what America, Mitt’s funny!
As the Washington Examiner writes … Romney was surprisingly hilarious. Surprisingly? No, not really … maybe only surprisingly because the MSM and Obama attack ads have tried to pain Romney something he is not. By night’s end and when American voters see the clips of the Alfred E. Smith dinner, voters will realize that Mitt just might be more likable than they were told.
Check out some of the more funny jokes from Mitt Romney as he did a tremendous job and showed American voters he is hardly stiff.
[Mitt able to make fun of himself and his wife Anne] Now Al, you were right, a campaign can require a lot of wardrobe changes. We — blue jeans in the morning perhaps, suits for a lunch fundraiser, sport coat for dinner, but it’s nice to finally relax and to wear what Ann and I wear around the house.
Let’s just say that some in the media have a certain way of — of looking at things. When suddenly I — I pulled ahead in some of the major polls, what was the headline? “Polls Show Obama Leading from Behind.”
…as President Obama surveys the Waldorf banquet room with everyone in white tie and refinery, you have to wonder what he’s thinking. So little time, so much to redistribute.
Second, find the biggest available straw man and then just mercilessly attack it.
Big Bird didn’t even see it coming.
And by the way in — in the spirit of Sesame Street, the president’s remarks tonight are brought to you but the letter ‘O’ and the number $16 trillion.
…now I never suggest that the — that the press is biased. I recognize that they have their job to do, and I have my job to do. My job is to lay out a positive vision for the future of the country, and their job is to make sure no one else finds out about it.
Barack Obama had some good lines but many fell flat and his timing and delivery was off. Maybe in the back of his mind he was thinking about that Gallup poll that had him trailing Romney by 7? However, as Newsbusters opines, one of his funnier moments was his making fun of Chris Matthews … “Four years ago, I gave him a thrill up his leg. This time around I gave him a stroke.”
Once again we are provided with a Comedian in Chief, not a President …
President Barack Obama, what a joke. Not only did Barack Obama fail miserably in his debate performance, looking clueless, without facts and bringing nothing to the table … Obama is now making a joke out of it. Really Mr. President? America expects a serious candidate for President and you have proved you are not it.
The jokes been on you America for the past 4 years
Just curious, what kid get an “F” on a math test and then makes fun of his test score? What business person completely bombs in the board room trying to convince others that their presentation is the one to go with and then jokes about it later? The answer is no one. No one, except President Obama as he makes a joke about his debate performance after his minions have blamed every one but George W. Bush for his poor performance.
From The Politico:
Now even President Obama is making fun of his Denver debate performance.
Speaking to a concert crowd at the Nokia Theater here, Obama said the musical acts that performed for his campaign – the likes of Katy Perry, Earth, Wind & Fire and Stevie Wonder, among others – “just perform flawlessly, night after night.”
A beat passed. Then the president made himself the punch line.
“I can’t always say the same,” he said.
Rather interesting comments from Obama, because the far LEFT and Obama’s base hardly found Obama’s debate performance a laughing matter.
Also, not the smartest thing to do when 70 million people watched the debate, not counting those who viewed it on CSPAN, PBS or the Internet.
