Someone should package the Republican primary as a reality tv series. I'd pay to see the reruns!

Bye bye Newt. I guess with bounce checks and losing campaign, Tiffany's probably will downgrade your credit. We Democrats will always remember what you tried to do to President Clinton. We will NEVER forget!

Bounced checks and a losing campaign, sorry. Just thinking about how he tried to hound Pres. Clinton, just infuriates me! He deserves his punishment.

Obama says....

Now, I know at this point many of you are expecting me to go after my likely opponent, Newt Gingrich.(Laughter.) Newt, thereís still time, man.(Laughter.) But Iím not going to do that ó Iím not going to attack any of the Republican candidates. Take Mitt Romney ó he and I actually have a lot in common. We both think of our wives as our better halves, and polls show, to a alarmingly insulting extent, the American people agree.(Laughter.) We also both have degrees from Harvard; I have one, he has two. What a snob.(Laughter and applause.)

Of course, weíve also had our differences. Recently, his campaign criticized me for slow jamming the news with Jimmy Fallon. In fact, I understand Governor Romney was so incensed he asked his staff if he could get some equal time on The Merv Griffin Show.(Laughter.) Still, I guess Governor Romney is feeling pretty good about things because he took a few hours off the other day to see The Hunger Games ó some of you have seen it. Itís a movie about people who court wealthy sponsors and then brutally savage each other until only one contestant is left standing. Iím sure this was a really good change of pace for him.(Laughter.) I have not seen The Hunger Games; not enough class warfare for me.(Laughter.)

Of course, I know everybody is predicting a nasty election, and thankfully, weíve all agreed that families are off limits. Dogs, however, are apparently fair game.(Laughter.) And while both campaigns have had some fun with this, the other day I saw a new ad from one of these outside groups that, frankly, I think crossed the line. I know Governor Romney says he has no control over what his super PACs do, but can we show the ad real quick?(Video is played.)(Applause.)

Thatís pretty rough ó(laughter)ó but I can take it, because my stepfather always told me, itís a boy-eat-dog world out there.(Laughter.)

Now, if I do win a second term as President, let me just say something to all the ó(applause)ó let me just say something to all my conspiracy-oriented friends on the right who think Iím planning to unleash some secret agenda: Youíre absolutely right.(Laughter.) So allow me to close with a quick preview of the secret agenda you can expect in a second Obama administration.

In my first term, I sang Al Green; in my second term, Iím going with Young Jeezy.(Laughter.)

MRS. OBAMA: Yeah.

THE PRESIDENT: Michelle said, yeah.(Laughter.) I sing that to her sometimes.(Laughter.)

In my first term, we ended the war in Iraq; in my second term, I will win the war on Christmas.(Laughter.) In my first term, we repealed the policy known as ďdonít ask, donít tellĒó(applause)ó wait, though; in my second term, we will replace it with a policy known as, itís raining men.(Laughter.) In my first term, we passed health care reform; in my second term, I guess Iíll pass it again.(Applause.)

It makes no sense whatsoever to stoop to bash law abiding people according to their net worth. In other words a mealy mouth clown like you who demonizes based on an individual's net worth propably donates little if any and sidesteps the pennyless. GFY

Yepper, most politically inept history illiterate snot nosed punks who stand for nothing and fall for anything including outsourced jokes would find what a lowlife who launched his political career from the home of bill ayers to be funny. The charade was an obamanation.

Other than George "The Drunk" Bush amd Rudy "The RAcist" Guiliani..he's the most disgusting individual walking the planet. I guess America is willing to forget his investigation of President Clinton and MOnica Lewinsky (while he got caught doing the exact same thing a few months later)

I think that Newt Gingrich was great politician and great candidate and Rich Santorum too. And they should give their delegates to last candidate, who is great American too and it is Ron Paul. He will continue this big work how to restore and save USA and he will be really the best president.

When the election is over, Ron Paul won't be a blip on the radar.
