Obama Syked Out at Correspondents' Dinner

5/10/2009 11:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Wanda Sykes, intro for President Barack Obama at the White House Correspondents' Dinner ... the room filled with celebs who really don't have anything to do with the event but were dying to be seen ...

Wanda Sykes - Click to view!Barack Obama Click to view!

Wanda was ... good. Funniest joke was about Vice President Joe Biden. Seemed a little too friendly.
Obama was good too, but it all just seemed a little too sycophantic.

Post #32 makes my point exactly.. As someone that is in the new business I can tell you that noone complained about spicy mustard nor was it on any newswires in the country, second you might want to check your numbers on 2/3 of the country. Bush was elected twice and take away Ohio and Obama barely won, remember Obama didnt get in because everyone liked him, they just didnt like the other guy. noone ive read here is crying, it just seems that they are disspointed that Obama was so classless as to hire Wanda Sykes to spew her venom.. why not just bring Perez Hilton or Sean Penn up there, they would have just as funny.

Kurt - Wrong and wrong! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to once again show you how Republicans are wrong. Again! So no one took issue with the spicy mustard? It was covered on Fox News with Sean Hannity, the Laura Ingraham radio show and the Rush Limbaugh show with Mark Steyn! They all had huge issues with the fact that he ordered spicy mustard on his hamburger which is made my Kraft! Please see this link for the five minute video showing excerpts from every single one of the above sources I have cited: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/05/08/obama-mustard-attack-beco_n_199953.html All of this was THIS WEEK. As for two thirds of the country, Bush's approval rating when he left office was 22% http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/01/16/opinion/polls/main4728399.shtml according to CBS news. You may find numbers slightly different but it never rose above 30% nearing the end of his second term. And President Obama's numbers are much higher than you acknowledge with an approval rating that varies around 67% according to Gallup http://www.gallup.com/poll/116224/Obama-Approval-Rating-Increases.aspx. This would have been reflected moreso were it not for the Electoral College and the fact that liberals prefer the coasts. Well, except the South. But have you seen the shores of Biloxi? Not a pretty coast.

SICK OF IT    

Our prez and his wife thought wanda was funny. It shows that not only is she a low class slug but those that laugh at her are just as bad. What obama should have done is lit up, put on some bling and be the person he really is. As to the arms of his wife. Our VA hospitals are full of Vets who have lost theirs. This entire administration is a ugly mess with ugly people. We have four years of this crap.

Kurt, President Obama did not hire Wanda Sykes. As someone in the news business, I would think you would know that. This was the Washington Correspondents Dinner. It was hosted by an organization and President Obama was a guest. Did you see Jennifer Loven hosting the event? She's the president of the organization. Talk to her if you have issues with Wanda Sykes. But President Obama spoke at this event and even acknowledged that this was not an event he was eager to attend. Attend. Get it? But you're in the news business so you already know that.

SICKOFIT So your issue is that Mrs. Obama has toned arms? You're angry about that? Is it Mrs. Obama's fault that arms have been lost in this misguided war? Former President Bush took the opportunity of an attack from one country to attack another country and got us into a war that caused that. It's cost us dearly. But Mrs. Obama's arms have nothing to do with that and you are being ridiculous or crazy to say it has.

Hey Kurt! Take notice! Read SICKOFIT's comment and try to connect that logic.

Where did Wanda mention Bristol? She was mocking Sarah Palin's insistence that only abstinence be taught to teens.

ANON...who the hell goes to a fast food place and wants Grey Poupon on a hamburger??? Obama does because he conciders himself a Foodie. No wonder people made fun of him!! Also, Clinton did not have the economy in good shape before Bush. Obama is the MOST partisan President ever. He never listens to the other side...just Soros and Move on .org. Where the crap is your mind????? You believe what you want to believe ,and your hate for Republicans is so lame. You progressive liberals are so demented that you can't even be normal. Normal for you is nasty, crass and mind-numbing stupidity.. Obama is making this economy worse , ask all the people without jobs , not to mention all the cut -backs because of his failures. He needs to stop going to dinners and patting his own back , when he has not done one good thing so far. He is worse than that dumbass Carter we had to live through. Also, we do not torture ..and Pelosi approved it!!! SHE WAS JUST CAUGHT LYING ABOUT IT!!!!! Also, Rush is not a drug addict, he has back problems like John F. Kennedy did and it is recorded that he took tons of pills while President....but I guess with you Progressives that is just fine !!!!

Well Twirp, I'm not going to waste too much time on you but President Obama didn't say Grey Poupon, he said spicy or dijon mustard. That's with horseradish. How upper crust! At a burger joint! So elite! Spicy mustard at a burger joint! You're ridiculous! And waterboarding is not torture? We've put former enemies on trial for it. Explain that. We now "officially" say we don't do it anymore. Why after it was already done? And Rush already admitted he had a problem. President Obama has been in office three months. You blithely ignore the previous eight years, or that the economy crashed in Bush's term. If it makes you feel better, so be it. But you're wrong, of course.

Angry Democrat 'Sky Blu' from LMFAO attack GOP Romney on Purpose .    

What was suppose to be a Media, White House , & good Humor event turned into a Angry Political Rally when former comedian turned political activist , Wanda Sykes , made very bitter remarks about radio host ,Rush Limbaugh. Rush Limbaugh stated that if Obama Policies are that of SOCIALISM then he wants those policies to Fail. White house Chief of Staff 'Rahm' express 'horror' at those remarks a few weeks ago and ,Now, Wanda Sykes suggested that Rush Limbaugh should be Tried for "TREASON"" and equated him as a Terrorist (this Clearly was not a joke but a suggestion). Wanda Sykes has a good and political relationship with Jane Fonda (according to Wanda herself) and is Now part of a Lefist Hollywood Coalition that has people like Michael Moore as a lecturer and this might be a reason for the remarks.

Hollywood and Media showed up for this event almost in Complete Attendance and Collective Obediance , it can be viewd as a Nationalization of Hollywood and Main Stream Media. Some others bloggers suggest that Hollywood or the Main Stream Media , should be named 'STATE RUN DNC HOLLYWOOD' or 'STATE RUN DNC MEDIA'.

Note: Some Media, Hollywood, & some Democrats have went 'Out of their Way' to portray Al-Qaeda Terrorists as Victims (60 minute interview to Al Qaeda, D-Patrick Leahy, Fraudulent 'torture' allegation ,Etc) in a Made Up Hollywood/Media Story , according to other news reporters.

Obama said Republican Abraham Lincoln understood that self-reliance was at the core of American life. BUT Obama said "Individual liberty is "served, not negated, by a recognition of the common good". The Common good of Collectivism as Obama stated a 'Collective Union' (which is Opposes Republican Lincoln ideal of individual liberty). It is Individual
Liberty that lead to the Ideology of freedom ,for All. The Democrats of Today seem to be engaged in the same Collectivism of before (From the Democrat Collectivism of slavery ,Jim Crow or George Wallace To Al Sharpton or D Durbin, Leahy or Democrat National Socialism , is still the Same Ideal.) An example of a Collective strategy is when one Leader suggest that ' A Negative Comment on him is a negative comment on all of Us (referring to a particular group, without reason).'.

Anon.....Grey Poupon IS DIJON MUSTARD!!!! Look on the bottle!!! SO again ,YOU ARE WRONG.( I have some in my refrigerator). No President has come out of office with a perfect record and so we will see when the media stops slobbering all over Obama...what his legacy will be. But,the media is getting big pay-offs to do this..so it will be along time. Rush admitted his problem and dealt with it. Millions of people have this problem and deal with it...but if they are Repbulicans they are druggies forever. Grow up and start to realize YOU are wrong on many things . I noticed when someone confronts you, you can't deal. Hope you wise up before it is too late for the country. You are soo intolerant of others.
