If Obama Loses Jon Stewart, Hes Lost America
Big Hollywood ^ | 8/6/09 | Chris Stigall

Posted on 08/06/2009 7:40:58 PM PDT by Jack Bull

July 15th, 2009 - a day that shall live in comedic infamy. The Obama administration’s first direct hit from reliably friendly allies. Former Saturday Night Live star, now stand up comic Dana Carvey was the guest on the new Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien. When O’Brien asked Carvey his opinion of Obama, Carvey trotted out some fresh material. “I’m worried. The economy just had a heart attack, but Barack just wants to work on the knee,” Carvey riffed. ”Should we do CPR? No, we’re gonna fix this knee. We can do CPR when it’s efficient and cost effective, but right now we’re going to work on the meniscus. “Carvey concluded the bit suggesting George W. Bush would have used an economic “crash cart.” “Tax cuts for everybody - CLEAR!” The audience roared. Were they laughing at Carvey’s “dumb guy” Bush impression, or was it the excitement of more money in their pockets as an economic remedy? No matter the audience response. Carvey saw fit to address economic policy in his comedy. That’s telling....

Late night comics don't think Obama is worth protecting since they figured out they will be losing their doctors, their stock portfolios won't be coming back any time soon and their taxes will soon be 60%.

I heard NPR on the way home — I don’t know it was scanning — anyway — there was a statement about how “every president promised to not raise taxes and then did anyway and Obama will to — AND — he’ll do it because its the right thing to do.”

Knee?

No Carvey, you got your metaphor wrong. The economy just had a heart attack, and Obama’s response is to shut off the oxygen supply.

Well hopefully more conservatives will be doing what that older lady did and cancelling cable and sat TV and turning the tv off. This is the best way to end our serfdom.

nO. The patient had a heart attack and Obama, Dem Congress, SEIU, ACORN and their pals are going through the patient’s pockets robbing them as the patient dies.

You have no idea how fu*kedup the typical NPR/PBS employee really is. Ten or more years of this and the average brain becomes cheese.

It's a sad but an increasing number of Amerians get their 'news' from a comedy show.

And these people vote.

It’s criticism of Obama - it’s a desperately needed start.
Obamacare may be Obama’s solution to the Medicare crisis, but let a bunch of pampered elders be denied their arthritis medicine, and the classic crotchety seniors will be back in force and protesting in walkers in no time. Hopefully, all the way to the voting booth.

Last week’s Daily Show also featured a montage of the President refuting criticisms of his health care plan. After the string of presidential rebuttals Stewart concluded, “You know a sales pitch is in trouble when it starts with “Look, you’ve got to trust me. We’re not going to kill your grandparents.”

That's hilarious.

I just love how it ended with the thoughtful quip “..and its the right thing to do..” Not — control spending, cut back, reduce services, spur the part of the economy that makes goods and delivers services by making it easier for them — no — the right thing is to raise taxes, never cut a cent from the ever expanding blubbering federal expenses leading us in to a never ending abyss of economic ruin. The reason these people are so ‘expletive deleted’ stupid is because they are all from academia — they never had to try their ideas out in practice in the real world (other than California).

That "There's nothing funny about a guy a perfect as Obama" thing had to come to an end. They have to start finding and pointing funny things about him, or go out of business. How long were viewers going to laugh at Bush jokes?

Unfortunately for Obama, it just so happens that his funniest trait is what a phony, incompetent boob he is. So that's what they are forced to now start joking about, or go out of business.

I miss president Bush. He told you what he wanted to do and he set about to get it done. I especially liked when he gave Saddam 48 hours to leave Iraq and comforted Iraqi people that their liberation was near.

He meant what he said and said what he meant. I can see why liberals would hate that.

“Look, you’ve got to trust me. We’re not going to kill your grandparents.”

Obamacare, telling grandpa it's time to go

And the logic remains inexorable. If government intends to “bend the curve” of rising health care costs, and half of those costs are incurred in the last six months of life, and physician-counselors will be sent to the seriously ill to advise them of what costs will no longer be covered, and what their options are — what do you think is going to be Option A?

We all knew it had to come and were wishing for it to come soon. Comedians now feel that, even timidly, they can and should mock the Messiah! Now comes the sudden severe drop for this clown and his thugs in the House and Senate, now they can begin to envision a 2011 without a monopoly. Now they will begin crying and whining.

I think the funniest thing about Obama is that he has no sense of humor.

If Obammie the Commie continues on his course, he’ll lose America with or without Jon Liebowitz.

Eff the unfunny jackass Jon Liebowitz. He makes/breaks no one.

"academia"

You've mentioned a great truth. Most of the people in Obama's cabinet are, like him, academians (?) who have little grasp of practical matters. I've been hearing that same socialist nonsense since the sixties from the hallowed halls of scademia. Now they have a prez who is just as naive as they are.
