Leno: We Wasted Four Years Waiting For Obama To Do Something About The Economy By Noel Sheppard | September 28, 2012
Jay Leno took some surprising shots at President Obama Thursday night.
During the opening monologue of NBC's Tonight Show, the host said Americans wasted four years for the current White House resident to do something about the economy (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

Pretty big applause after he says it.
Wasted four years because it was politically incorrect (did not serve the Democrat Party) to complain about his handling of the economy or to point out that the numbers he cited were repeatedly bogus (and “readjusted” after the spotlight was off).
Jay Leno is obviously a racist.
Leno should have known a while back that you can’t put much stock in a guy who blames his incompetence or sabotage of our economy on other people.
If his cohorts get their way, they will waste 4 more years without any turning back.
Wow, he really sneaked it in there. But good on him for not being an empty headed parrot.
Jay must have gotten an ugly 401K statement...
..."I love how the politicians capitalize on this kind of thing," teased Leno. "Like the minute the replacement refs were fired, President Obama said, 'See, sometimes losing jobs can be a good thing. It's a good thing.'"
It’s not the waiting that was a waste, it was the belief and expectation that he was competent to do anything about it in the first place.
Every person who voted for Obama was either ignorant of our situation or genuinely stupid.
I imagine that giving up half his salary to keep his show going had some affect on him. :)
Looks like NBC has been given their marching orders against the white house.
I just read that SNL actually sorta kinda made fun of Obama and the economy recently-
***the host said Americans wasted four years for the current White House resident to do something about the economy***
Reminds me of what FLIP WILSON said about Jimmy Carter.
“I don’t know why everyone is down on the President (Jimmy Carter) about the economy. He ain’t done nothing!” Howls of laughter from the audience.
It will be interesting to see, if other TV personalities like Leno follow suit. If he loses that group, then obama is surely toast.
I think he sees the 75% tax rate looming on the horizon and realizes he has a lot to lose.
It could be that 50% pay cut he was handed a couple months ago.
Leno has wasted time having Obama on his show.
Well, it IS true that the Resident keeps caddies employed...
The has been litterman will be having a field day doing some one liners against Romney and Leno. He’ll probably have Woopie Goldberg on early next week
Took 4 years for ya to figure that out huh Jay...........Dumb-a#%!
The problem with Bill Clinton saying “nobody could have fixed this mess in four years, not even me”, is that everybody knew that Obama had no experience, and they were taking a gamble on a novice.
So what Clinton was saying to them, was basically, “hey, I know that you have doubts about Obama’s competence, but you certainly don’t have any doubts about MY competence, so since you trust ME, but not HIM, trust me when I say that he did as good a job as I could have done”.
In other words, Clinton, someone that the American people think highly of (at least in terms of his political competence), was having to vouch for someone that they have doubts about, due to both his lack of experience, and his inability to solve the problems he was expected to solve.
Now here’s the question.......could you ever picture Clinton, or any other experienced, accomplished politician, having to make that case for an older White guy who couldn’t
get the job done in his first term? I can’t.
The case that Clinton was making had such strong Affirmative Action undertones to it. And I think it will ultimately backfire.
We waited 4 years for the MSM to notice
I was shocked at the SNL Weekend Update show on last night. I happened to catch the opening skit. The new guy who does the Obama imitation did a good job. Actually made Obama look like the fool he is.
Or fully concurred with his obvious goal of destroying this country.
It's a mistake to think that he actually cared about doing something about the economy in the first place. It's the agenda, stupid.
It's beyond that. I'm sure you've encountered the "fans of Zero", they don't care about reality. If Zero was caught murdering and eating nuns & orphans they'd still support him.
The only way to get them to dump him is to ridicule and make fun of him - make Zero the joke that we all know he is
Jay didn’t like having his a%* handed to him on payday, instead of his usual compensation!!
Welcome to the club, Jay!
At least He did. There are some, that have still yet to figure it out.
I watched it last night and was shocked. I even LOL a couple of times. I had just heard Lorne Michaels say they just couldn’t find anything to make fun of with Obama in an interview just the other day.
Must have had a few dinners with the Sage of SoCal.
We told Leno that 4 years ago, yet, these liberals will make it sound as if this was their idea.
On the other hand, Jay has been taking shots at the Pres for a while now. Not with the same intensity that goes after conservatives, but taking shots nonetheless. I think he may have had the beginnings of an awakening the last time he had Rush on his show. I don't remember the specifics of the interview, but I do recall a general, "You did build this, Jay, and you shouldn't have to give any of it to the govt," meme coming from Rush. It's strange to think about it now, because that happened over a year ago.
He did do something. That’s why we’re in the mess today.
This is true. The mentality is one of wanting to be allied with the "cool" group - no matter why they're "cool". This is why the faded Obama poster line was effective. Romney's people should double down on that approach by likening Obama to the iPhone 5 mapping fiasco. They need to make him un-hip, passé, cliché, old, stale, yesterday's fashion.
Jay Leno is obviously a racist.
Jay Leno just took a major hit to his wallet in taking a very reduced salary and the Tonight Show had some layoffs too because of the economy and various and sundry regulations being shoved down our throats.
Wanna hear a joke?
We need to realize that the left are selfish, egotistic and yearn for attention. People that will not pay for insurance, car payments, utilities, etc. so they can keep that iphone on. They do not put their own family before their infantile needs.
A few years back I was familiar with a nest of lefties. Two brothers were raging about how the government didn't do more to save their mother who was ill and also mentally debilitated. Their mother was on all sorts of assistance but they blamed everyone else for not paying more to care for her better.
They blamed me, they blamed my Conservative friends and family...
Then they talked about how much work and money they put into their cabin boat and how much weed they smoked, all the partying they do.
I suggested that perhaps they should have spent less on their "entertainment" and more on their family ...
it just doesn't connect in their brains
Maybe JLeno has advance word about BHusseinO’s new car tax?
I read somewhere that Leno has yet to spend a penny he’s made from the Tonight Show. He’s supposedly living off of the money he made when he was doing standup comedy shows.
Blame for Benghazi will be interesting .... in the long term. Obama’s policies are a major part of why this happened; however, SOS Clinton is directly responsible for security - directly, as in her name is signed on the Libyan ROE docs. IF she is thinking about 2016 (and I don’t think she’s ruled it out ... certainly her supporters like Slick, Rendell, etc. have not), then she needs to NOT get the blame. Obama doesn’t want his historical legacy sullied - might keep him off Mt. Rushmore. The options are: both at blame (unacceptable to both), Obama or Hillary. The long-term implications spin begins ....
Leno has from time to time made some “token” jabs at 0bama. Litterman, on the other hand, is a devout 0bama worshipper. Always making fun of Republicans (including suggesting the rape of 14 year old Willow Palin), but NEVER of 0bama. I refuse to watch him, he is utterly beneath my contempt.
“I read somewhere that Leno has yet to spend a penny hes made from the Tonight Show. Hes supposedly living off of the money he made when he was doing standup comedy shows.”
The really high-paid athletes give their high salaries to charity and live off of the endorsements. Has something to do with tax rates.
Shaq, Manning, Brady, et al.
leno has missed the point
0bama HAS been doing something about the economy... he’s been working it worse... as planned
leno just hasn’t come to understand that was the intention all along.
leno isn’t an America hater, like 0bama
Hope it is not To little to late Leno, but maybe you should be watching 2016, Obama doesn’t want to fix the economy.
