We noticed that some folks couldn't make it this evening.  It's been noted that Bob Woodward sends his regrets, which Gene Sperling predicted.

Heh, heh.

Hah!  0bama can't make funny jokes!  Now, us Republicans, our jokes are truly funny, because they involve the violent deaths of our sworn enemies, the Democrat Libruls!

That's not the joke. Now, the idea of John Boehner walking out of a bar, with nobody propping him up, that's funny.

FTFA: - But all these changes to my team are tough to handle, I've got to admit.  After nine years, I finally said goodbye to my chief speechwriter, Jon Favreau... Fortunately, he did not take the prompter on his way out.  That would have been a problem.

Meh, should have gone with an Iron Man joke. Or what that have been too obscure for most of the audience?

Given his co-workers, I imagine that Boehner's drinking problem is serious business, man.

For a moment, I thought the director of Iron Man also wrought Obama's speeches.
Which would have been kind of cool, imho.

Presidents always catch criticism from someone over these events. Remember Bush looking for WMDs behind the curtains in the oval Office?

Yeah, who would have thought that people would get upset at a president making fun of the bullshiat reason he used to sell a war to the public, costing the lives of thousands of Americans.

But hey, at least he finally got that hug from his Daddy.

He has pretty good comedic timing... A little dry, but he knows how to deliver a punch line.

The Right are nothing but a bunch of whiny babies anymore. They presently have a 26 percent approval rating that they blame on the MEDIA and not their unpopular policies, plus not a day goes by where some wing nut Republican somewhere doesn't propose some mind bendingly stupid piece of legislation or makes some really crass, inappropriate comment.

Of course, the MEDIA reporting on the stupid shiat Conservatives do is considered LIBERAL MEDIA BIAS in Rightwingistan.

This is for you, oh legions of the butt hurt sore loser two-year old Republican idiots...

Black people are awesome. I don't know why there is such a high correlation between racists and economic conservatives, but it's sad that my party won't quit alienating that vote

Obama caught some heat for a joke about drones or predator missiles or something a few years ago. And, funnily enough, even though the right wing news shouted loudest, it was the mainstream liberal evil left wing media empire that wholeheartedly supports Obama and props him up that first called him out on it. Personally, I wasn't as ticked about that one because of how over the top absurd it is, and that they (the drones or the missiles) weren't the thrust of the joke - it was about protecting his daughters from potential advances from some boy band members who were in the crowd; it was a joke about being a protective father while president - but this one does annoy me, for the same reason George W. Bush's joke about looking for WMDs annoyed me. There are ways to joke about that stuff, but both of those were done tastelessly. It demonstrates how completely immune, personally, the president is (and for that matter, nearly all politicians) from the effects of the decisions government makes aside from re-election. We really need to fix that. First and foremost, if any government action is going to negatively affect American citizens, those who feel it the hardest should be our elected officials.

They determined that correlation is not causation, therefore the high correlation of inner city schools to fail due to being underfunded is not caused by the effects of trickle down economics on the urban population.

Therefore, not our fault.

Ya know, if Mitt Romney could have cracked a passable joke about the 47% thing on the right day last year, he'd be the President now.

It was really a matter of "these people can't be serious. I am not going to dignify this with a response. OK, they're still talking about it. This is getting distracting. Here ya go, dummies."
