Obama Tries Stand Up Comedy … Bombs

We GET the Joke … It’s Just Not Very Funny

President Obama tried his hand at stand up comedy. Here’s the punchline:

Russia has pointed to America’s decision to go into Iraq as an example of Western hypocrisy. Now, it is true that the Iraq war was a subject of vigorous debate, not just around the world but in the United States, as well. I participated in that debate, and I opposed our military intervention there.

But even in Iraq, America sought to work within the international system. We did not claim or annex Iraq’s territory. We did not grab its resources for our own gain. Instead, we ended our war and left Iraq to its people in a fully sovereign Iraqi state that can make decisions about its own future.

We get the joke … We know that:

  • The protests against the Iraq war were the largest protests in history, and yet the politicians plowed ahead with the disastrous war and refused to listen to the facts … or the will of the people

We get it (the whole satirical opposite-of-reality comedy schtick) … It’s just not very funny.

So – other than a few polite claps by his secret service escorts – Obama’s stand up act is getting no applause:

    I liked the part of Obumer’s speech where he sited the USA long history
    of rule of law. Ha. Ha. That line brought the house down with
    snickers! It is amazing audacity how bald face liers have no
    conscience or remorse.

    In the next election, America needs to choose some one like Insane
    McCain or General Handgranade Romney to be President. Ha. Ha.
