Leno: Its Gotten So Bad for Obama Fox News Changed Its Slogan to See, I Told You So! By Noel Sheppard Created 05/18/2013 - 1:43pm
Jay Leno on Friday continued his humorous attacks on the White House.
The NBC Tonight Show host finished a string of opening monologue jokes aimed at President Obama saying, Let me tell you how bad it's gotten: Fox News has changed its slogan from Fair and Balanced to See, I Told You So!" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
JAY LENO: As you know, it's casual Friday, which means at the White House they're casually going through everyone's phone calls and records. It's a casual Friday.
I'm sure you heard by now President Obama fired his acting IRS commissioner. Apparently he was fired for acting like Richard Nixons IRS commissioner. That's why he got fired.
Well, you know, love him or hate him, you got to admit President Obama is a new kind of Democrat. I mean, think about it. He's embroiled in three scandals, not one of them involves sex. That has never happened before. That has never happened before.
It's been a tough week for President Obama. In fact, this morning he called Mitt Romney and said, "Look, if you still want the job."
Let me tell you how bad it's gotten: Fox News has changed its slogan from Fair and Balanced" to "See, I Told You So!" See, that's not a good sign.
Makes you wonder if Leno knows that's the title of Rush Limbaugh's second book.
Now, that's Funny, I don't care who you are.
Ok, this one is hilarious!
I believe this is exactly how Obama feels right now!
“I have not forgotten how much Leno, Letterman and Fallon spent so much time selling Obama to the idiots of this country and sucking up to him.”
Absolutely; they lost their credibility years ago selling their souls to our media masters, now they’re trying to claw back some fans. To Hell with all of them; this damage is deep and probably permanent.
His sit down with Mitt Romney was very engaging. The audience was very receptive to Mitt and applauded loudly at mention of Paul Ryan 2016.
“He called Mitt Romney and said, “Look, if you still want the job.” I really liked that one.
They will go after Leno.
Leno's great... thanks for the post.
Leno better be careful...he could wind up sleeping with the fishes...or at least audited by the IRS.
Not at all.
He’s perplexed by the fact that all these peasants are still yapping at His Eminence.
It’s gotten so bad Leno can tell Obama jokes...
His audience is made up of people with no idea what there could be to talk about on this forum.
Seriously. He’s got a captive audience of blank slates. They’ve been spoon fed the Leftist bilge since five.
So when they laugh at jokes at our expense, and hiss at jokes told at Obama’s expense, he thinks he’s really scoring big. No, he’s simply reinforcing the propaganda they’ve been spoon fed.
If the Left think that the Republicans are going to win in 2016, then they will push for the most liberal GOPer.
Mitt’s their new hero.
They will go after Leno.
Leno couldn’t care less. And no, they won’t go after him because they know he’s right.
In other words, Leno used Obama’s scandal to get in another dig at FOX News for not really being “Fair and Balanced”, as liberals see it.
Leno has been on a roll these past few days..he knows he’s gone from NBC so he doesn’t have to worry about being fired for trashing Obama
I can see why NBC forced him to retire.
Leno is having a great time. He knows his attacking Obaba is driving the Obama loving bosses at NBC crazy. Short of pulling him off the air, there is nothing they can do. Should get interesting because you know Obama’s people are complaining loudly.
As you know, it's casual Friday, which means at the White House they're casually going through everyone's phone calls and records. It's a casual Friday.
Fox should approach him for a new late night show at his regular time.
Perhaps it’s the other way around — Leno’s using his monologues to reel in a contract with a much better network.
That could be true too..Leno is a flaming lib(And his wife is a huge abortion lover) but I give him credit for going after Obama..at least he has the guts to do it
He does this on Purpose to tweak Comcast Management......
And they deserve it.......
Leno is going “Scorched Earth.”
Guess Leno might want to go out with a bang. Of course, too little too late, from my perspective. The whole late-night talk-show genre lost every tiny remaining shred of credibility with me, with its soft treatment of Obama.
Actually, with me, the final straw was four years ago, when Letterman made that rape joke about Palin’s 13-year-old daughter, right on the heels of “slutty makeup” jokes and whatnot. When that happened, I just stopped watching ALL the late-night shows. I used to take a look at most of them, from time to time. But that was it for me. I haven’t watched a single, solitary minute of any of those shows ever since. None of them. And I don’t miss them.
That may be how he presents, but behind closed doors I think he's not. I was at a Dish Network dealer conference in 2004 where the conferees were inspected at the door for any recording devices, and once the last one was in they locked the door and brought out Leno to do an hour and a half show. The man was off-the-chain hilarious. Spewed venom at Bill and Hillary Clinton the whole time and had nothing but kind things to say about W. He may be a closet conservative. What you see on late night is him dialed way down.
“Well, Mr Leno, if that is your real name, you stated on your tax form how much that used car collection of yours was worth?”
I hear his wife is a lib, but he is fairly middle-of-the-road.
I think it is: We didn’t go far enough.
Wait a minute.... I think he's right!
Leno does go after Libs which I do appreciate but he has said some things about the Palin family that well, has pissed me off..but of all the comedians, Leno is the least that I can’t stand..he is no Letterman, cause Letterman is the ultimate douche bag..Leno can be very funny at times..so there is hope for him..put him on Fox and see if he can expand his audience
I think Leno got canned for this kind of talk, and I’m sure he’ll be audited for it.
Not very good is my guess. Of course I think they game those JayWalking videos. Not everyone is that stupid, and they make it look like everyone is clueless. Not that clueless IMO...
Pretty sad. Especially, considering that two of the scandals helped get Obama elected last year. Pretty serious stuff and it strikes at the foundation of our republic.
Lets see how it plays out and more importantly watch the Liberals and Democrats. Will they be willing to look the other way or downplay the seriousness.
When Letterman starts telling Obozo jokes then it will be over, and not a second before that.
Not really, Comcast and he have been pissing in each others corn flakes since last year during contract negotiations......Leno was too pricey. As were his writers.
But then again its ADVERT $$ that drive it......damn capitalist pigs (sic). Comcast wanted to squeeze the profit margins.....
I agree with your response. We’ll need to do that. I’d like to think the public would begin to take these things serious, but it’s going to take some figures on the Left to open their eyes, and give them cause to think they need to see things differently. Without that ‘permission’ or ‘admonition’ it isn’t likely to happen. The Left don’t think for themselves. And yet, they think it’s us who don’t. WRONG!
Could be Verga. I don’t watch either of these two clowns anymore. There are funnier more original guys on after them.
Likewise to you. This is a turning point for this country.
And remind your Liberal friends that a Republican might be in office in the future and do they want Republicans to be able to do the same.
Yeah, like that would fly, a Republican getting away with what this lout is.
At one of the Ann Coulter “meet and greets” after a Tonight Show appearance few years back, one of Jay’s producers came and he was quite conservative and gave the impression that Jay was center-right.
