"People always say to me, they say, `Hey, Letterman,' they say. `Why don't you make jokes about Obama?' And I say, `All right, I'll tell you why. I don't make jokes about him because I don't want the FBI tapping my phone,"' he said.
Leno tapped into the same idea with a different story: "I was going to start off tonight with an Obama joke, but I don't want to get audited by the IRS, so forget that."

They would still vote him a third term.
Hmmm. Perhaps that would explain the relative paucity of BJ Clintoon or Hitlery (Mrs. Bill Clinton) jokes during their reign compared to all the vitriol directed towards the Bush administration...
I have no way of knowing.
Lettermen has been pegged as a progressive
Leno I dunno
I dont watch TV anymore
I don’t make Obama jokes because his name isn’t Weiner. That and I don’t want the IRS, NSA and FBI investigating me.
Letterman would probably feel more comfortable making sex jokes about one of Sarah Palin’s underage daughters.
I was going to tell a Biden joke but I was afraid he’d blow a shotgun through my door.
Apparently they got the message. The untraceable one. Don’t eff wit me crackuhs.
Don’t watch any network crap, except for the occasional disaster on the news.
I’ll bet that old gap toothed adulterer had to have a gun pointed at his head to say that about his personal hero Urkel
Id hadnt considered the fact that a “producer” might well have “provided” the material to letterman...and required he present it...prior
I dont even have a TV at present.
Im paying for cable...for the net and tv....but dont ever see any TV
maybe when the one starts giving away free OBAMA-TVs
This marxist turd is using the entire gub mint apparatus to after any and all critical of him and his chicago thug ways
Great job there msm yaworthless butt kissers
Welcome to America in the Age Of Post Freedom.. Tyrannny
As someone close to the scene, Letterman ordered his writers not to make jokes about Obama. So they didn’t. Apparently, Letterman is under the thumb of his very liberal head writer (or at least he was).
Dear Leader holds the “applause” sign button.
the humor biz may be getting more market driven??
I do not make jokes about Obama because he is not funny. He is letting America be plundered. He squanders our moral authority. He diminishes our military power. He is making us a third world economy.....what is funny about Obama?
I don’t make jokes about the silly faggot because my door isn’t SWAT team proof yet. I’m working on it.
His utter arrogance assuming that no one can see him for what he is ..is the only funny thing about him.
he is truly tragically comic in his transparent posturing.
Its either laugh or cry...and I prefer to laugh at em.
yes it does require an enormous amount of discipline not to be thoroughly discouraged by his ascencion!
he is an insult to office of the Presidency and every American Living Dead and as yet unborn.
One does not have to make jokes about the imbecile; he IS A JOKE!
A communist, a Muslim and an illegal alien walk into a bar. The bartender asks - what’ll you be drinking Mr. President?
Maybe. I’m usually asleep before these guys start their monologues.
Hey, Mikey! He likes it!
Bada Bing Bada Boom!
Conservatives know that whole groups of people are exempt from jokes being made about them. Has any of the late-night talk show spielers ever made a joke about Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Michael Moore, Oliver Stone, Ralph Nader, Gloria Steinem, and a host of other leftist jerks? I’ve never heard any.
I don’t have time to think up Obama jokes because I’m too busy planning my grand tour of the 57 states via the intercontinental railroad.
It’s getting Nixonian out there.
Forget that: They are investigating you anyway.
They are listening to everyone and tracking their travels on the WWW.
