Leno: Obama Is Running Out of Republicans To Blame Fiscal Cliff On

Leno: Obama Is Running Out of Republicans To Blame Fiscal Cliff On By Noel Sheppard Created 11/22/2012 - 10:29am

Jay Leno continued his string of comedic attacks on the current White House resident Wednesday.

During his opening monologue on NBC's Tonight Show, the host said that because Democrats did so well on Election Day, President Obama is running out of Republicans to blame the fiscal cliff on (video follows with transcript and commentary):

"President Obama today pardoned the White House turkey," Leno teased. "And then the turkey forgave him for the bad economy. So it worked out nice. Thought that was nice."

"As you may have heard," he continued, "our economy is headed towards what they call a fiscal cliff unless President Obama and Congress can reach some sort of compromise. And President Obama is in a tough spot. Because the Democrats did so well on Election Day, he's running out of Republicans he can blame this on."

You know, if the rest of the people in the media were willing to call the President out for his part in this stalemate, maybe he and his Party would be forced to deal more honestly with their opponents.

But since Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) know that Republicans will be blamed by the press for any failure to avert this crisis, they don't have to seriously negotiate.

Must be nice.

Quick, Boehner, step away from watching the Macy’s Day Parade. Jump in and snatch defeat from the jaws of victory!

It appears that it’s now safe to attack their boy “messiah” since he is, hopefully, done running his mudslinging, lying and phony campaigns. They don’t have to worship Barry’s epidermis anymore.

It’s just now dawning on Leno that the economy is heading for the crapper and he will be personally effected by it. He must not like the idea of the huge tax hit he’ll be taking and/or losing millions in his investments. It’s always about the money.

Today is a day for us to be thankful for living in this great nation of ours, but even as we begin this holiday season I’m sure we’re all feeling a sense of uncertainty and fear knowing what’s ahead beginning in January.

What a shame it took a second term for Jay to start telling it like it is.

It’s hard to be critical if you’ll get painted as a racist and lynched in the public square for telling the truth.

*Must be nice*

Leno took a 50% pay cut in September to help save jobs on his show.

I’m not necessarily a fan of his, but I’m sure he understands Baraq’s “new normal”

I want to know when he starts to shut-up on this. You see I was told eons ago their are some real sweet tax code deals for running a 501(c)(3) museum for stuff like collector cars. I don’t know how he runs his, but when do they start to “nudge” him........

Maybe Leno is starting to figure out that folks who earn the biggest bucks are, by definition, “capitalists”.

Hey Jay... Why do you have that three-story garage to house all of those vintage cars and motorcycles? You can only drive one at a time, and with your jug-eared libtard butt buddy, he’ll be sure that’s all you have. For social and economic justice’s sake, of course... Friggin’ Communist-enabling moron.

Jay kept having him on his show, so I guess Jay helped get him reelected. Going on these shows and the View helped the celebrity get elected. Though it is not Presidential. I guess being president now is just merely being a celebrity. Just a figurehead, kind of like the Queen of England.

Nice catch. But are you talking about the one that fell apart or all in general?

Happy Thanksgiving!
