Leno: ‘Obama’s Better Off Smoking Crack Than Passing ObamaCare’

By Noel Sheppard | November 7, 2013 | 09:57

Barack Obama’s signature legislative accomplishment took quite a hit on television Wednesday.

After Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood mocked it during the Country Music Association Awards, NBC Tonight Show host Jay Leno said the President is “better off smoking crack than passing ObamaCare” (video follows with transcript and commentary):

JAY LENO: And President Obama saw gravity today - not the film, his poll numbers, not good. [Light laughter] Latest polls show President Obama's approval rating down to 39 percent. And Toronto mayor Rob Ford's approval rating went up to 49 percent. How does this make Obama feel? He's better off smoking crack than passing ObamaCare - would have been up ten points. Would have been ten points higher. [Applause]

Actually, have you noticed the president backtracking a little bit on this whole deal? Like at a fundraiser earlier this week, President Obama said, no, no, no. What he promised was that you could keep your healthcare plan if it hasn't changed since the law has passed. You know, he's such a good speaker, he almost believed it himself [Light laughter] and then his pants caught fire. That's when I knew. [Laughter and applause] When I saw the pants caught fire.

Well as you know, the ObamaCare website is having its share of problems. And here's a video metaphor to explain, I think, what will eventually happen. Here, take a look.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

ANNOUNCER: The following is a video metaphor for the rollout of ObamaCare. The dog represents ObamaCare. The stairs represent the uphill battle it faces during this massive rollout. Even though it gets off to a slow start, it’ll eventually be up and running. [Light laughter] Sure, it will be ass-backwards, but it’ll get there. This has been a video metaphor for the future of ObamaCare.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Yep - ObamaCare is now literally the butt of jokes.

Good for Leno. Most other comedians are cowards and won’t go after Obama. Put a Republican in the White House, and they become champions of free speech again.

We’re better off if he smokes crack instead of trying to engineer everyone’s life for them.

suggestion - the flag should either show burn marks or be hung upside down.

Leno no longer has a contract to worry about, has plenty of money, good investments, and is ready for retirement. He has never lived “Hollywood Large”.

He doesn’t give a damn what the Hollywood types think now....

Unfair. Obama admitted he smoked pot and snorted cocaine. He has not yet admitted to smoking crack.
