Flying Pig Moment: John Stewart Busts on Obama
Environmental Republican ^ | 2/12/09 | Scott

Posted on 02/12/2009 5:41:49 AM PST by sswenviron

Shocka! Stewart actually busted on Obama's poor speaking style, the reporter who asked the inane A-Rod question, the Huffington Post and just about every other brutal aspect of that press conference.

It's a start I guess and one doubts it will spread to the volume we saw with Bush but late night talkers would be wrong to miss this gold mine of comedy. So far, in less than a month, Obama has broken every campaign promise, hired tax cheats, irritated our allies, ridiculed his VP and essentially made a mess of his first task--ramming through the porkulus package.

In three weeks, Obama has shown his incompetence. Even the compliant media can't look away after what we all watched the other night.

He started beating up on the Obama appointments almost immediately.

I was hoping for this, though I believed it wouldn’t truly happen, but thank you, John Stewart. Haha!

...just as long as he can get away with 13 minute answers, inane questions about anything but policy, and the media abides by the rule to let the agenda follow how and who asks the questions....everything is fine. Don't ask anything that may cause an uncomfortable feeling for the anointed one.

Au contraire! This morning on NPR they were praising Obama for his "early and decisive victory" in getting the Stimulus Bill passed. They have also commented on his "brilliant" press conference in which he -- once again -- showed what a great communicator he is.

I think the media will eventually snap out of it. And having comedians begin to make jokes is a good start. But I think the MSM is still chugging the kool-aid.

Obama has broken some promise, bit in fairness he has not broken “every” promise as you claim.

You are correct.

He has kept a number of the promises that I feared (and knew) he would.

Did Stewart show the video of Obama bumping his head on the door of his helicopter and make derisive comments? I doubt it. If Bush or Palin had done it, he’d devote his entire show to making fun of them for it.

NPR does the koolaid intravenously. There is no hope of intelligent evaluation there. They are on the list of recipients in this Porkulus bill. (Around page 450 or so)

He definately is not going to break his socialistic promises, only the moderate ones he gave to get elected.

It will force others to get off the adulation sooner than they otherwise would like to because of the competition within the comedy business.

Jon Stewart has NO impact on me and he is NOTHING without his writers....we found that out during the writers strike. Secondly, I blame Jon for belittling and demonizing President Bush. He made Bush look like a fool on tv...on purpose. What impact did that have in the war on terror? One wonders...

You know, I'd watch John Stewart more often if it weren't for one thing; Like his predecessor, he isn't funny.

Obama could eat a live kitten on Prime-Time TV, and NPR would praise him for reducing the "Earth's Carbon Footprint".

Comedians making jokes is a good thing, laughter is the one thing self-important narcissists can't handle. Obama will melt down and the media will cover the death spiral.

If he breaks EVERY promise, he may not be such a bad guy. Here’s hoping.

NPR is a perfect long-term example of taxpayer-funded media. It is beholden to big government for its very existence. NPR is the dog. Government is the master.

Now for the 64-dollah question, how soon will they “tell” him and his like to damp it down?

Did you mean to reply to me? I’m taking cold medicine so I’m not tracking well.

I can find nothing wrong with what you are saying.

OK, so he had no impact on you.... But Stewart and others like him had a tremendous impact on how much of the electorate viewed Bush, Palin, Obama, etc. during the last election. Especially among younger people, you could hear Jon Stewart's sketches coming through in almost every political opinion they expressed.

That's not a good thing, obviously -- but it is nevertheless a fact. If somebody like Stewart is beginning to make fun of Obama, among his strongest demographic, that's big news.

Jon Stewart is an equal opportunity nutbuster.

Is this really particularly worth commenting on? Is the headline “Comedian Tells Joke” really all that shocking?
