Obama’s Jimmy Fallon Embarrassment
Fox News ^ | April 25, 2012 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 04/25/2012 10:44:03 PM PDT by Brown Deer

Obama jumps the shark with student loan jam

President Obama's 'celebrity status' reached perplexing new levels last night on comedian Jimmy Fallon's comedy show last night. After watching this sketch, I think it's fair to say that he has 'jumped the shark.'

Last night on the Jimmy Fallon show, Obama "slow jammed" with Jimmy Fallon and his band about his plan to freeze interest rates for student loans, criticizing filibustering Republicans for blocking his plan.

Warning that the interest rates for student loans will 'double,' Obama warned that "some hard working students would be paying about $1000 extra just to get their education."

"There are some in Congress disagree," Obama said, backed up with jazzy music. "They say that keeping the interest rate low isn't a way to help our students, they say that we should be doing everything we can to pay down the national debt, well, so long as it doesn't includes taxing billionaires."

"But their position is that students just have to make that student rate increase work," Obama states. "Frankly, I don't buy it."

"The Barack-ness monster ain't buying it," Fallon croons.

Wow, I missed that one! Maybe Charlie accidentally put up the rough draft instead?

Bravo Zulu! Perhaps the most accurate and concise description of Hims I’ve seen. Sad that some folks think Hims a Baby Ruth.
I once knew a Sgt. Major who, otherwise not given to any cursing, reserved “turd” for the greatest of social or professional offenders...the top of the steam’m pile as it were.

As an intelligence analyst, you wouldn’t have much to do with this bunch. Actually, they may be quite smart in what they play, to whom and how. They will do anything won’t they?

People just don’t know how to act. Society has been conditioned to celebrate foolishness and sissies.

The stupid kids don’t understand that somehow somebody has to pay for all their buddies there on campus who are getting a full or partial free ride. I think the numbers are something like about half are paying very little and the other half are making up the difference.

” - - - students just have to make that student rate increase work,” Obama states.”

Yeah, Obama, that is what is called REALITY!

If you want to stretch your brain,
Then you must endure the pain.
Pain at the Bank,
And pain at your desk,
Succeed or perish that is the test.

The pain at the Bank
Was of Obama’s design,
So work to pay back
What you borrowed from us.
And never look up,
‘Til you’ve earned our trust.

I guess the kids aren’t so concerned about interest rates when they don’t have the means to pay it back anyway.

The message was directed to those who watch the show.

Yep, the dope smoken' 25 year old college grad, still in school, "working on his/her masters", living off the old man's car and health insurance and "allowance" and uncle sugar daddy's EBT program along with "student loans".

Not working, but plenty of time to protest, and while daddy pays their Ipad/Verizon monthly bill, they bitch about the 1%{ while living the life}.

Obummer looks like a juvenile dope.

Appearances can be deceiving.

He's not the genius he thinks he is. OTOH, he's not an idiot and he's not ignorant.

He and his handlers are evil, and they think we're idiots.

I made it through about half the clip and then I couldn’t take it any more. As Rush has made clear this student loan “issue” is a total fabrication as the RATS wrote the legislation that made the rates go up and now they want to play the hero by moving them back down. Why people are stupid enough to fall for that is beyond me.

That is the problem in a nutshell, once the age of 18 years is reached any nonsense spouting child who shows less maturity than was expected of me at the age of 8 is allowed to vote. There is no hope for this country so long as this is true. When my state used to trust 16 year old students to drive a school bus and they demonstrated that they well deserved that trust they were not trusted to vote until they turned 21. Now that we don’t trust a sixteen year old to do anything we trust 18 year old teenagers to vote. Does that make any sense? I think not.

The Kenyan Pirate has probably received some very disturbing news (that will never be shared with us little people) that he has lost the “youth vote” in a big way. Even if he washes out student debt (which only impacts some young people), he can’t obscure the fact from them any longer that not only won’t they have the lifestyle their parents had, they won’t have anything that remotely resembles it.

SO true, irish. I think that ANY college-aged or nearly college-bound with more than two brain cells realize that with how Obummer has driven this country into the ground, they're not so much worried about *re-paying* their loans once they've graduated and gotten a job that will clear loans and *other* living-costs, that the REAL worry for them is if they'll even be able to GET a job, PEROIOD.

His minstrel show indicates how bad it is, and how poorly the media can influence the electorate at this point.

THAT'S what it was--a (bad) minstrel show. And it was a post Civil War show--Obama looked skinny (hungry) tired and skiddish (worked to the bone) hollow-eyed (as painted like a post CW black blackface minstrel) and acted buffoonish--as was the demeanor of the black-blackface show.

For Obama's upcoming new (Reality Show) minstrel tour, I hear he's learning to juggle old people and do disappearing-coin magic tricks...

Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al:We have stuck together since the late 1950’s for the sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we
tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations,but sadly, this relationship has clearly run its course.

Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right for us all, so let’s just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.
Here is a model separation agreement:

—Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by land mass each taking a similar portion.. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be
relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes. We don’t like re-distributive taxes so you can keep them.

-You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.—Since you hate guns and war, we’ll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military.

-We’ll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and you can go with wind,solar and bio-diesel.

-You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O’Donnell. You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them.

We’ll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street. You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, homeless, homeboys, hippies, druggies and illegal aliens. We’ll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO’s and rednecks.
-We’ll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood
You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we’ll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.You can have the peaceniks and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we’ll help provide them security.

-We’ll keep our Judeo-Christian values. You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N. but we will no longer be paying the bill.

-We’ll keep the SUV’s, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars. You can have every Volt and Leaf you can find. You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors. We’ll continue to believe healthcare is a luxury and not a right. We’ll keep “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” and “The NationalAnthem.” I’m sure you’ll be happy to substitute “Imagine”, “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing”, “Kum Ba Ya” or “We Are the World”.We’ll practice
trickle down economics and you can continue to give trickle up poverty your best shot. Since it often so offends you, we’ll keep our history, our name and our flag.

Sincerely,
John J. Wall
Law Student and an American

P.S. Also, please take Ted Turner, Sean Penn, Martin & Charlie Sheen, Barbara Streisand, Ed Asner & (Hanoi) Jane Fonda with you, and don’t forget Alec Baldwin, Miley Cyrus & Lady Gaga.

P.S. And you won’t have to press 1 for English when you call our country.

Forward This Every Time You Get It ! Let’s Keep This Going, Maybe Some Of It Will Start Sinking In.

What is incredible is not how low Obama the politician can go, but how far he can drag the Office of the President down with him.

Is it any wonder the Secret Service would rather party with hookers than protect the Office of the President?

Dare I say, Bill Clinton had more respect for the Presidency?

Yes, he is playing to his audience, but a lot of those dopes that are reasonably decent people—that really wanted to vote for a “historic” president....they are watching, too.

It's not all “Obama stash” people. A lot of those independents have houses that are completely worthless, know many in their family that haven't worked for a year or more and can't kick out their adult CHILD that has occupied their basement, sitting around playing video games because they are too “educated” to work at a fast food place.

These people were squirming while watching that program. And they are listening to Romney...who actually gave a very good speech the other evening. I think Obama is going to go down in a very, very bad way...and probably try to start a REAL race war as he gets more and more desperate. Not going to be pretty.

Nice man, if a bit patrician. His boss at the time was the greatest man I ever knew and was like a second father to me. Also liked General Haig, was very good to the lower ranks. Vice President Quayle would’ve made a decent president, but was smeared like Gov. Palin.

I was too young to vote for Dukakis, but probably would have as my brain was mush and I was in the indoctrination camp.

All that changed on 9/11. Overnight I became a Conservative.

I know they are SAYING that....I heard Pissy-Chrissy and his group gushing about how “cool” he was...but I also noticed something else. A desperate tone. They know Obummer made a d*ck of hizself.

Also over at Huffpost (I go there for a laugh...it's almost been taken over by our kind...so they hardly ever ban anymore! Quite funny.).....The he's so “cool” crowd...it's there, too. Just the hint of desperation...of trying too hard to convince themselves.

This is going to just get worse and worse. He is a desperate man who indeed probably just recently got the results of REAL POLLING TRENDS. Be prepared for anything...maybe they can artificially inseminate that old beard he's married to and she can try to get the “awe, a baby in the White House” vote. Ooops...that won't work, she's too old. Hmmmmm....maybe Barry can finally come out of the closet and go on Letterman to proclaim that he is “A gay American President”. Nothing would shock me at this point.

Its funny hearing Obama trash Billionaires, he sure has no problem hanging with them and collecting money from them for his re-election campaign

What about that house the Mooch and the Mooch Juniors stayed in while on their ski trip to Aspen? The press conveniently ignore the fact that there are super rich liberals that support them. It’s bad to be a rich white Republican, but perfectly fine if you are a rich dem.

How is changing the loan rate changing the cost of college? Of course it’s not, really, at least not as much as the 5-7% annual increases in tuitions, which amount to much more expensive college than a 3.8% increase in loan rates.

Why don’t they leave the rates the same for those who already have loans and allow the old rates (equal to the newly doubled rates) go into effect for new loans? Everyone will know what they are getting into ahead of time. They could then easily choose to serve their country in the military to earn their future tuitions.

There is just not a lot for someone aged 5 to 75 to look forward to in another Obama term; he’ll have to fight for everyvote he can get. It isn’t 2008 anymore; there is no more media hype for this loser.
