Obama started at about 7 p.m. with an off-color joke about Ellen DeGeneres and his wife, who recently beat the comedian in a pushup contest on her talk show. He said DeGeneres had complained “that Michelle didn’t go all the way down.”
Isn't that what lesbians do when they're doing push ups? They go up and down!!!
Nothing off color about that.
Look, BO needs to work on getting jobs for Americans, not flit around doing comedy acts and appearing on talk shows like he's some kind of rock star.

Actually, both sides are already campaigning hard, so no work will get done until after the election. The President needs money to run, and the party that opposes him will NEVER vote for anything that would improve the economy now, because it might give a boost to his rating.

That's how our system works.

If we don't like it, then we need campaign reform of some sort to shorten election season or lengthen Presidential terms

Classless Obama is always miscalculating about the acceptability of his humor to the majority of Americans.

The problem is that BO never quit campaigning, even after his inauguration.

Rock star? Nope, culture personality is more like it. Heck even Clinton could play a bit of sax.

Romney isn't on the Federal payroll and IMO Obama's should be yanked. He's been in campaign mode side Nov 2008.

ThThis is one area where this president IS actually being transparent. Campaigns should be funded publicly and be limited to only six weeks! This guy makes every trip he takes become a site for a campaign speech.

Obama was at a L.A. gay event. Of course there will be references to gay people.

When you can present a law that mandates that a sitting president cannot campaign during an election year then you have something to play with, until then... you're acting a fool.

The only group of people who has the right to be offended would be the gay community, are you gay?

If not then why the support for gays when in fact you're likely a homophobe?
