Leno is definitely a liberal, but perhaps a more honest one that others in the media. Last night he took aim at Obama during his comedy routine (via CNS News):

Consider this an open thread.

    Though I don’t watch any of them, Jay is the least offensive.

    • bbitter

      I agree with you… yet I can’t stop to think about what he just did.

      …cuz that proves to me that his liberalness is an open-eyed choice; he can see the sudden stop at the end, and yet he is on that wagon… and all of a sudden it’s not funny anymore.

      • AmigoRed

        I’ve always thought he was more of a moderate,

        • http://www.facebook.com/salvatore.anello Salvatore Anello

          He only moderates because he knows his audience is about 50/50 if you believe the election results.

          • AmigoRed

            My point is that he seems to be a fair comedian by criticizing Obama the way he has the past 4 years. Unlike Bill Maher who is just all in the tank for Obama.

      • Betsey_Ross

        And I’ll bet he even voted for Obama. I am not impressed. We have been over him since 2004 when he just coundn’t stop making those “stupid” Bush jokes.

  • stage9

    Isn’t it curious how everyone AROUND Obama is either corrupt or scandalous but never Obama “himself”? How does that work exactly?

    • sjmom

      He can’t hide forever; he will be exposed.

    • Rshill7

      Remember all the folks that went to jail, died, or got caught up in the bus’ undercarriage during the Clinton administration? Not Bill and Hill though. Teflon figure skaters.

      It’s magic!

      Like sjmom says, yes, he’s got to get caught up in something. I so wanted to see Romney wipe the fruited plain with him. Was chomping at the bit for that. Now I just want all those MENSA candidates who voted for him, to see him revealed, in full subversive regalia. Replete with horns, pitchfork, and rotating head.

      • Betsey_Ross

        It’s scary, but none of them will ever admit he is corrupt. They act is if they are in control all of the time. Win or lose it’s always the same. The Good Guys always are on defense and they aren’t even good at that. It’s time for a new party.

  • bbitter

    Um, isn’t it a bit late to jump on the logic bandwagon, Jay?

    Fantasy is really nice, as nice as you can imagine, but reality tends to bite when you wake up.

    Wake up, wake up, Jay… you snoozed through your alarm for 4 years….

    • funkybarfly

      I remember Leno clapped and laughed with Obama when the President answered a birth certificate question by saying,”When Donald and I were growing up in Kenya” – side-splitting.I don’t know if Leno is aware of Adobe but he should make inquiries.
      Maybe Jay had an epiphany when he was admiring his car collection and the words rang in his mind’s ear,”You didn’t build that”,and “the millionaires can pay a bit more”.
      You just don’t know how far Obama’s new economic adviser Bono will go – an African dies every time he claps his hands and apparently it’s our fault.

  • Darkbella007

    They are all gonna laugh at you!!!!

    • bbitter

      hehehehehehehehe….

      • Darkbella007

        I imagine toll booth willy to be very funny. And how much more can they take without resist we much?

  • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

    I don’t know if this is dear leader or Boehner playing the road runner.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gq_bjaI0NTo

    Or then there’s always this one, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3GFYKIwJ9Y

    Either way,it’s gonna be an interesting ride.

    • Darkbella007

      Boehner is….something we must resist.

      • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

        Oh yeah!

        • Darkbella007

          For us, it has been stripped down to the bone. Think smart. Critical thinking is a must. With our resources we are not without hope. Boehner, thinks for himself. Why shouldn’t we.

      • mike3e4r7

        Resist him we much.

  • aPLWBinAK

    Leno a more honest Liberal than others in the media? Umm..yeah, when it suits him he may be, but Leno is a money whore. He judges his audience(s) and says what ever will get the laugh, it’s always about the ratings.

    • Darkbella007

      Would that make you wonder? A liberal hack suiting himself? Why would he say such if it was unpopular? He is still a hack. I just wonder what his motives are.

    • mike3e4r7

      It’s all just about making jokes as far as Leno is concerned. In all fareness, that is his job, but let’s not pretend there’s any political conviction motivating his jokes. He’d just as soon make a joke about Romney, George Bush, Hillary Clinton, whomever. All his jokes are just formula jokes. Find out what’s in the news, and somehow make it “funny”.

      “Oh, the frontpage of today’s paper is talking about some sort of fiscal cliff, whatever that is. Hey didn’t Obama say something about pressing on…no, forward, that was it. Wouldn’t it be funny to combine this cliff thing with this forward thing? That way you can have this funny punchline about going forward over a cliff. Yeah, that’ll just floor the audience.”

  • anyonebutbarry2012

    I do not watch him or any of the others, if they are boycotted, maybe they will think before speaking..

  • sjmom

    If an greement is not reached we go over a cliff and if Obama gets what he wants we go over a cliff. Some choice.

    • Rshill7

      It’s like “Let’s Make Deal” with a cliff behind every door and curtain.

      • sjmom

        Great analogy. At this point only God can save us and I believe He will because He loves us.

    • warpmine

      If obama gets what he wants then we hit the ground at 200mph. Either way we allowed this to happen via negligence.

      • sjmom

        I understand what you’re saying but will disagree in that unless we could have known who decided NOT to vote and talk them into it or unless we could have done something about the fraud committed there is really not much we could have done to stop what happened.

        The election only shows how blind and deceived people really are because they believe the hype and they have now walked into a trap where they have caused their own hard times. We did try to tell them but they refused to listen. Blacks still voted for race, Catholics still voted for Democrats, women still voted for their right to abortion and the poor still voted to stick it to the rich.

        Most of us here were not Romney voters. We did not choose Mitt the establishment did and just as Rush has said the GOP disdains conservatives and they have treated the Tea Party shamefully.

        This nation has a problem but it won’t be fixed by either party because the problem is spiritual. We need to turn this nation back to God, give the Lord His rightful place and repent. Yes, many of us have done so but until we run things there will be problems. This, IMO, is the only answer because only God has the answer because God is always the answer. Where people fail God doesn’t so keep the faith. Prayer changes things and so we must pray and seek the Lord for our own part. God put us here at this moment in time for a reason so let’s find out what He would have each of us do and then do it.

        Oh my gosh! That snow making machine on his back. Was that our presidents soul?

        What a good representation though: We’re not headed for a cliff, we’re already over it, still making snow (money) with no support. But there is another side if we only reach it.

  • opinionatedhermit

    “The good news is that Obama says we’ll run out of gas long before we get to the fiscal cliff.”

    LOL!!!

  • http://twitter.com/WaiGuoGuizi 学中文的美国男人

    Leno jokes about liberals relatively often. I wouldn’t be surprised if he is a conservative.

    EDIT: As for the “malarkey” about the “fiscal cliff,” we need to wake up: The Republicans negotiated for the cuts as part of the debt deal! This is exactly what this country wants and needs: cuts! Why are some in the Republican Party now trying to increase spending by turning away from the policy of the so-called “fiscal cliff” that will cut spending?

    • PhillyCon

      I know what you mean. Leno can be “fair” to conservatives or Republicans on his show. He’s not a conservative, but sometimes he tries to see the other side. It’s b/c he lives and hob nobs in Hollywood that keeps him liberal.

      • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

        Maybe he is actually a-political and just plays both sides when needed.

  • MaxineCA

    Ha ha…. guess Jay had a recent meeting with his tax accountant and found out how the Obama policies are going to kick him in the butt next year! Guess he heard that the idiots who watch his show from CA voted themselves not only a sales tax increase but an additional state income tax on “the rich”. Or maybe he found out that his taxes will go up on capital gains. Way to go Jay. You and Hollyweird crowd carried the water for O, now I hope you all drown in it. Unfortunately you all will survive, but unfortunately many others won’t.

    (Haven’t watched any program on MSM for years…… I sure hope those idiots that voted for O will suffer along with the rest of us and will wake the heck up, but I’m doubtful they will.)

    Leno is a liberal because his wife has a testicle lock box.

    Was thinking earlier tonight – how in Hades can the US voters want to do away with the best medical care in the world. Then remembered that these out of touch pols, and hollyweird types like Leno/Looney/what’isname, can just jump in their jets and fly off to Switzerland and its swishy clinics. No skin off their noses, eh?

    • http://www.facebook.com/paul.christian.942 librtifirst

      Our medical system is pretty screwed up. We haven’t made any new advances in a long time, and cures get suppressed by government and their corporate buddies who make billions off of drugs. Medicine in the US is drug bases, and is designed only to mask symptoms, rather than curing disease. Doctors can’t do anything that is not approved, including natural remedies.

      I will say that injury repair is very good.

  • Yazz55

    If it wasn’t so funny, it would be a really sad commentary about the upcoming implosion of the USA.

  • ecosse

    wondering if privately leno, et al are having buyers remorse. i’m a bit more p#ssed off at those who come around than the real fellow travelers. those beginning to wake up (or voted due to white guilt, etc) could have saved us all a lot of misery if they just did their homework to begin with.

    still, seeing as how he and i are both half scottish car nuts from massachusetts it’s hard for me to truly dislike the guy.

    Jay reads lines off a teleprompter, just like Preezie ZerO. He’s just current enough to make people laugh as they go over the cliff because no one is really doing anything about it. We’re all watching it like a slow motion train wreck. Wake Up America.

  • JimNEPA2_0

    What the hell does Leno care? He’s a one-percenter himself who made a fortune being one of the most unfunny “comedians” around, simply because Johnny allowed him to take over the show.

    Sure, now that he’s re-elected you’ll probably hear a few more cracks from the left about the horrors of another four years of Obama. Well, they should have thought about that before they voted to re-elect him. But, don’t worry, all Obama will do is blame somebody else. In this case, Obama will just blame Congress for everything. Obama always has somebody else to blame. Doesn’t that ever get old with the majority of voters? I guess not.

    It is clear that we no longer have free elections or a functional two party system. All bets are off. Here is an idea: Tax Big Blue

    The people always turn against the elite rule in the end.

    Stick it to blue states a/k/a Country First

    “”So if Boehner and his team are going to put some tax increases on the table, perhaps by eliminating deductions more than raising rates, they should learn from past mistakes a drive a truly hard bargain….

    And let’s hope the Speaker and the rest of the Republican negotiators are smart enough to propose revenue increases that will hurt liberals the most. Start by taxing the ever-loving crap out of Hollywood. I’ve suggested this before, and the esteemed Instapundit, Glenn Reynolds, was on the same wavelength last August when he suggested bringing back the 20 percent excise tax on motion picture gross revenue from the 1950s….

    Capping the mortgage interest deduction at $250,000, for example, would hurt those rich blue enclaves with high property values – 8 of the 10 richest counties in America voted for Barack Obama in 2012. Taxing trust funds and hoards of foundation money would hurt the Left, as outside of Hollywood, rich liberals are more likely to be sitting on piles of inherited assets, while conservative millionaires tend to be actively generating and re-investing income. Ending the federal tax deductions for state and local taxes – an idea prominently advocated by Newt Gingrich during the Republican primary – would end the practice of federal taxpayers subsidizing the government greed of those big-spending blue states. It’s actually a form of inter-state redistribution as it stands, so let’s do away with it.””

    I guess his writers couldn’t come up with any good jokes about cancer or incest. Those are much funnier than economic collapse.

    Edit: Hey Jay, BTW, we really don’t think you need all those cars. The new law is one (fuel efficient) car per family. You can keep that electric one from 1904. That sounds “fair”.

    • tinlizzieowner

      “The new law is one (fuel efficient) car per family.”

      I fully expect to see something like this somewhere down the line. At the very least, I expect to see a tax on antique & custom ‘hobby cars’. The Hollywood rich like Leno will (of course) be able to get around it but little guys like me with a couple cars, wont.

      • NYGino

        They will just declare those cars as “museum art” and not only be able to keep them but probably get a government grant to maintain them, of course a political “donation” to the Democrat party will be expected.

        • tinlizzieowner

          In Leno’s case, he has a ‘museum’ already. What you are saying makes perfect sense. In my case, ‘Lizzy’, my 1927 Model T Ford, is in my daughter’s garage and ‘Da Rumbler’, My (Chevy V8 powered) 1960 Rambler American, is in my car port, so I’m out of luck. :-(

          • NYGino

            You’re not out of luck, you don’t need a real museum, the “donation” is the only thing that really matters. Saying you have a museum just adds cover to the whole scam.

            Kinda like Solybdra wasn’t really intended to be an ongoing, profitable business. It’s real purpose was getting money from the government for political payback and self enrichment.

      • Arrrggghhh

        I’m sure that there will also be taxes on what the government deems to be “gas guzzlers” as well as on cars that get TOO GOOD gas mileage because they are not paying their FAIR share of gas taxes. I also wouldn’t put it past them to put GPS devices in cars to track your driving habits.

        Oops, sorry, we already have all those. NEVERMIND!

        The Canadian rock group Rush released the song “Red Barchetta” in 1981. Our children will think it was written AFTER the “Motor Law” was enacted:

        My uncle has a country place
        That no one knows about.
        He says it used to be a farm,
        Before the Motor Law.
        And on Sundays I elude the Eyes,
        And hop the Turbine Freight
        To far outside the Wire,
        Where my white-haired uncle waits.

        Jump to the ground
        As the Turbo slows to cross the Borderline.
        Run like the wind,
        As excitement shivers up and down my spine.
        Down in his barn,
        My uncle preserved for me an old machine,
        For fifty-odd years.
        To keep it as new has been his dearest dream.

        I strip away the old debris
        That hides a shining car.
        A brilliant red Barchetta
        From a better, vanished time.
        I fire up the willing engine,
        Responding with a roar.
        Tires spitting gravel,
        I commit my weekly crime…
        Wind-
        In my hair-
        Shifting and drifting-
        Mechanical music-
        Adrenalin surge…

        Well-weathered leather,
        Hot metal and oil,
        The scented country air.
        Sunlight on chrome,
        The blur of the landscape,
        Every nerve aware.

        Suddenly ahead of me,
        Across the mountainside,
        A gleaming alloy air-car
        Shoots towards me, two lanes wide.
        I spin around with shrieking tires,
        To run the deadly race,
        Go screaming through the valley
        As another joins the chase.

        Drive like the wind,
        Straining the limits of machine and man.
        Laughing out loud
        With fear and hope, I’ve got a desperate plan.

          Now I have to listen to Rush. Good on you.

          • Arrrggghhh

            Very funny story. I was playing a “Rush” song from my iTunes library and casually mentioned to one of my young daughters that it was by “Rush”. She immediately connected “Rush” with the person that she hears on the radio all the time, Rush Limbaugh. Her response was priceless: Rush sings? It’s even funnier if you know that “Rush” is a fairly hard rock band.

    Sorry, but there’s no need for me to raise my blood pressure by watching any of these pandering millionaires on late night television. The only usefulness they can serve in the near future is that eventually maybe, some of their at home audience will wake up one day and see the hypocrisy of the hosts comfort. These guys makes asses out of any one with a right leaning approach for a cure and make way too much money doing it. To be honest, if the whole bunch of late night hosts gave half their worth to charity my opinion wouldn’t change. They’ve been complicit in the libs destruction of this country for the sake of laughter. They ought to mind their own Hollywood business and key in on their fellow perverts, drunks and drug addicts that have too much to say about conservatives who have legitimate solutions to our problems. Remember too, this creeps reneging on his retirement deal when he screwed his successor and found a willing partner in his network to virtually screw a fellow lib. Theres a lot to be said about liberal hollywood in that one story.

  • toongoon

    All of the talk about the fiscal cliff has turned into a Hollywood catch phrase. How many people do you think have any idea what the implications of it are?

    It sounds like a reality TV show, they want to know what time and channel it’s on.

    • PhillyCon

      They have no clue.

  • PhillyCon

    So, now they will be critical of Obama? After he got re-elected?

  • NYGino

    Isn’t it ironic that two of Hollywood’s biggest liberals, Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis, are driving the car that goes over the cliff at the end of Thelma and Louise? Life imitates art.

      Barry and the gang are likely to find out it’s not a good idea to fool around with a 4 star General. ;-) ;-)

    • Wigglesworth111

      Petraeus could potentially face criminal charges for the Broadwell fiasco at Obama’s discretion, but he could also face legal troubles if he lies in front of Congress. Something has to give here.

      • Rshill7

        Sure…he seems to be in the come clean mode now. If he goes down, he’s damn sure not going alone :-)

        Have you ever seen burnt food stick to Teflon? I have.

        Especially when that Teflon has been wearing thinner and thinner. It also tends to “flake” off.

        Hey Obama! Flake off! :-)

  • Sober_Thinking

    I appreciate the sentiment Scoop. Thank you.

    Honestly, this material isn’t funny. And audience laughs at such a serious subject. Frankly, my funny bone has been fractured since last week and I’ll need time to mend. Until then, let these late night comedians make our national debt a punchline so America can laugh it off.

    • Arrrggghhh

      You’re exactly right. The left trivializes important issues and serious people by making jokes about them on the late night shows and SNL. All the more reason to tune them out completely. I pulled the plug on my already limited channel selection television ENTIRELY on 11/7. I encourage everyone to do the same – if they already haven’t.

      • Sober_Thinking

        I’m half a step away from doing the same thing.

      • DebbyX

        I was told if you get NetFlix and Hulu you don’t even need the main stream. We get our news right here anyway! Cable TV costs us about $125.00 a month, what a waste it’s been.

    • sDee

      Exactly. That is same role as the morning news shows’ opiate. Both our news and our entertainment industry is gltizty sophisticated yet pathetic state propaganda.

      The truth is no where to be found.

      • Sober_Thinking

        Agreed. Well, aside from the bible (imo), the truth is no where to be found. :)

    Without a bunch of writers, those “comedy” dudes are as good as FuBar Ack without a teleprompter….
    If Rush Limbaugh called, say, Hilary, “a c*nt”, there would be huge protests, marches, calls for his death, etc.

    But Maher’s arrogance? It is OK, he gave money to DNC….Nothing happens.
    I am still waiting for the news about his loooong hospital “visit” after his tete-a-tete meeting with Todd Palin…… ;)

    Get the libs off this site ………..i dont care what they have to say

  • Wigglesworth111

    What the media fails to point out is we are in this situation because of Obama’s failed leadership the past 4 years. He signed bills into law that set up this fiscal cliff scenario.

  • Rshill7

    And then there’s this:

    Breitbart News reported earlier that the Supreme Court is reconsidering one of the major cases challenging the constitutionality of Obamacare.

    The Court has now set that petition for a vote at its November 20th closed-door conference. The outcome of that vote will likely be revealed the morning of November 26th, after Thanksgiving.

    The case is Liberty University v. Geithner, No. 11-438.

    I see some glimmers of hope. I call it, glimmer glamour.

    Even though I am retired now, I don’t stay up late enough to watch his program. I did not know Obama won until the next morning when I woke up. I told my son to me wake if Romney won. When my son had not awoken me, I knew the bad news without turning on the tube.

  • PapaLouie

    It would be a mistake not to think Obama wants to go forward over the fiscal cliff. It will result in tax increases on everyone and cuts to the military. And it can all be blamed on Republicans because they were “unwilling to compromise.” What is there not to like about the fiscal cliff for Democrats? You’d think old-timers like Boehner would have figured that out by now. Yet they fall for the same tricks every time. Who could have known Lucy was not going to let you kick the sequester football down the road this time? What a surprise.

  • Bob

    Obama is a Pathological Narcissist. He controls America. What is next? Study history. Germany in the 1930’s is very similar. Crisis. Chaos. The Rise of the Leader. Next he will purge all government and cultural institutions and put revolutionary marxists into as many positions as he can. He will “consolidate the revolution”. Purges, power grabs, power, power, power. What we see in the “news” or through leaks will only be 10% of what he is actually doing. He will be gutting America’s power in any way he possibly can. His supporters will become even more wicked, hateful and violent. The media will greatly step up it’s lies and attacks on anyone with traditional America values. Any problems, like a collapse of the economy, will be blamed by the media on capitalism, white people, businesses, etc. It’s going to get much, much worse and fairly quickly.

    Typical Progressive fashion, wait until after the election to make that joke, when it has zero chance of hurting Obama’s reelection campaign…
