Here is complete video of Jay Leno speaking at the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner last night, where he skewered everyone from President Obama and Vice-President Biden, to Al Gore, to Hillary Clinton, and members of the media. Obama looked a little uncomfortable during some of the jokes. Leno followed President Obama, who also delivered a comedy routine at the event.

I’ll pass. Seeing Obama in any way, shape or form makes me vomitous.

As a bomb almost went off in Times Sq.,
as Boston lost water for 2 million people,
as oil fell upon the US border, and as
criminal illegal aliens and terrorists
continued to have no problema storming
through the “border”, these clowns joked,
laughed, and were fed at taxpayer expense.

If President Bush had yukked it up at a black tie gala after spending more than a week responding (weirdly) to a massive oil spill which is slowly killing the Gulf, what do we suppose the media response would have been?

He also skewered Bush. The spoofs against Obama were LAME. Not really funny.

Leno bombed!

I saw some of it and he was not funny!

He told more Bush jokes than Obama jokes...

Is it impossible for the libs to joke about the poor job this administration is doing?

I think you might find it interesting. Leno seemed very uncomfortable. The first shots he took at Obama he asked, “I don’t even want to look - is he (Obama) laughing?”

Leno took a few more shots like the one suggesting Obama only took softball questions from the press.

Too me, it seemed like Leno was struggling with this thugocracy or just fed up with these criminals and their “press/props” and he was fighting the urge to speak truth against power.

Eleven men died, yet it was Obama himself yukking up the disaster. Those grieving families don’t even have a body to bury, and Obama...

Sorry, I can’t finish that sentence.

The audience seem afraid to laugh. Either there were no cocktails served or people are just plain scared to be seen in belly laugh mode when the subject is Obama.

It was downright weird IMO.

"The spoofs against Obama were LAME. Not really funny."

What about the one where Zer0's not really aloof and cold, he's been socializing like crazy - Wall Street, Banks, Auto Companies, Hospitals, Doctors, ......

Skewer 0bama? Leno spent most of the time picking on the GOP. I didn’t see 0bama wince or get uncomfortable once.

It remineded me of the show Cabaret (sic) where in the one scene they did the show and the camera panned out to the crowd and there was only nazis, and they were not laughing.

Why is everybody saying Leno did a poor job? People were laughing; he’s even getting some chering!

It shows the depth of feeling Obama has for human beings. He's sure expending a lot of energy pretending he didn't wait EIGHT DAYS to bother responding, though.

After watching this disgusting “event” on C-Span, I switched over to SNL. As far as I could see, the two shows were almost identical: bad actors and unfunny jokes.
The Narcissist in Chief sneered at us Americans and trashed Sarah Palin. His arrogance is astounding.
Whom do we have to thank for this “dark night of the soul” that our country is in?
Jack Ryan and his wife Jeri for screwing up the Chicago
Senate race
John McCain; Nuff said
Stupid voters: “
Mother Soetoro: “
