Barack Obama

The President of Comedy

5/2/2010 10:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

President Barack Obama isn't worried about his approval rating here in the United States, because he's still well-loved in the country he was born in. *RIM SHOT!!!



Barack killed at last night's White House Correspondents' Association Dinner -- even lobbing a few grenades Jay Leno's way.

Afterward, we got Scarlett Johansson as she made her way through fans and autograph seekers -- where our camera guy threw out a pretty interesting wager ...

Each president has made mistakes. You people who say the horrible things about President Obama, have no respect. I'd like to see you rednecks and hillbillies run the country. Don't forget that the President is a person, too. Honestly, you people don't have anything better to do to get on TMZ and bash the president?



On the other hand, TMZ you really have awful paparazzi.



"Scarlett please, Scarlett please, Scarlett please." Jesus, get a life.



And while I'm at it, the chances of President Obama getting impeached are slim to none. Sorry to burst your bubble, all you neo-conservatives. President Obama's approval ratings may have gone down, but he's done some pretty honorable and impressive things since being elected, and they will last.



One more thing, I thought he was pretty damn funny.

Reply to Debbie @ 3:46pm today: Yes, I remember when I was in college and I found arrogant Ethiopians to be attractive with their chins jutted way up in the air.... now I am more mature, and I realize that there is nothing attractive about a man like Obama who sees women as having limited purposes of bearing his children and serving him. Obama's arrogant chin in the air? Obnoxious, disgusting. There is another possibility, Debbie. Do you perhaps live in Two Dot, Montana, where you don't see a man too often? That could account for your conviction that Obama is "extremely sexy". Try this: "The Apprentice" is on tonight, and you should be able to find a re-run later of "Walker, Texas Ranger". Donald Trump and the actor who plays Cordell Walker are hot, hot. Check them out. You really need to get over that delusion about Obama.



Reply to Helen: Do you suppose Michelle grabs onto those ears when they are intimate? That's a bad, bad visual.

You have never been more correct in your life. It is GREAT JOKES from him ~ ON US!



The WORST President in our history. He is the most devious, the angriest, the most self-promoting over the welfare of the people he should be loyally representing, and the most personally unevolved spirit I have ever witnessed take over the Oval Office, on top of the fact that he has no f'n idea as to what he is doing other than adhering to a Socialist idealogy from his Frat years. He is spiteful, thin-skinned, makes the most disparaging and twisted remarks against country and countrymen, and is THE WORST orator because he never speaks from truth or the heart. He now has guilt written all over his demeanor because he knows "the jig is up". The majority of this country is on to him and there is no turning back.



Obama and his band of thieves are STILL simply and purely Radical leftovers from the 60's, only now in suits and ties. Obama may have one foot in the White House, but we have not let go of his rear end as it still hovers over the threshold for the easy boot OUT!



I cannot wait for either IMPEACHMENT or 2012. Cannot wait for November and the blockage of his Healthcare scam. Cannot wait for the systematic deportation of EVERY PERSON who has ever ILLEGALLY crossed our borders, no matter how long it takes, and if they happen to be mostly of Mexican heritage, that is their own fault and so be it. And cannot wait, most of all, for the American Spirit to fully and powerfully awaken in time to rescue the United States Of America from the "MISGUIDED" element who elected him and the ones who lie to keep the truth of their SABOTAGING agenda at bay.



Obama's poor attempt last night at seeming nonchalant and above it all is the biggest laugh of all. The "cool" factor which got him elected has melted fast by the high degree of scrutiny which has FINALLY caught up with him. And, yes, Mr. Obama, show us that Birth Certificate and your subscription to Ancestry.com if that is what it takes to clear the air on this point. Do not put yourself in the opportunistic position of acting like an Illegal Alien who refuses to show papers or lack thereof feigning racial profiling!



This is spoken by an Independent at heart who happens to despise the Dems this time around and for good reason.

When the commander in chief tells better jokes than the guy who's actually PAID to tell jokes, it's time to retire. Jay, your time is up...

How in hell he could go to the dinner last night, act like a moronic comedian, and then try to convince us today that he gives two ****s about the catastrophic oil spill by flying out to look at it? This president is nothing but a narcissistic sociopath. I'll bet anything he's impeached before his ONE and ONLY term is up. Idiot.

Do what you need to do, Mister President. Continue to create a situation where the stock market can keep climbing (falling unemployment will follow), bring health care costs down, etc., etc. Don't worry about the birthers and baggers cause to them you'll never be nothing more than a n*gger.
