Obama economics at work.

I think that it is now more acceptable to make a few jokes at the President’s expense… it is 5 years in and he has done a great job at reversing the financial crisis that Bush created; Osama bin Laden is dead thanks to the brilliant policies, strategies and tactics of President Obama and we are passed the re-election of 2012. The American people did not approve of harsh attacks or joke towards or about President Obama because we have too much respect for him, but now we can loosen up a bit because we see him as one of our great Presidents.

Furthermore, the joke is on the tea-baggers who thought they could defeat this President.

These so called jokes are just thinly veiled racist attacks because Obama is black. I can't believe MC Patty condones it. You may find obamacare, Benghazi, Solyndra, no jobs and $100million vacations funny. I do not.

You’re joking right? That sounds ridiculous. Every president is the butt of the humor on late night TV. Obama has been on those shows making fun of himself but the Media has treated him with kid gloves during his first term, there is no doubt about that.

Whew!

I've been sitting on a bunch of Obama jokes for years, but I was afraid of being called a racist for saying them.

Now that we have your blessing it must be OK.

Why are there no funny right wing comics? or funny right wing TV shows? FOX tried one, it failed before it even got on the air...

i think the term wet blanket and poison pill come to mind when talking about the current right wing in the US...

Why are there no libby comedies that have fun without insults and attacks and stereotyping?

Oh, and for your answer: because lamestream media will not let them air.
No more Bob Newharts, Bill Cosby's or the good clean humor of the 50, 60 and 70's because the big three like raunch over righteous.
