I also get tired of hearing people bash someone on the right for what they "thought" was said, when it wasn't really what was said. I heard Rush said he wanted Obama's policies or programs to fail, not the country to fail. Big difference.
By the way, I'm not a great Rush fan, and I try to read many sources before froming an opinion. It does get sickening listening to some stations give Obama a free pass on the truth. They are obviously overwhealmed by his aura. I don't think Obama would know the truth if it bit him in the a__.

Thank God we have a president who can understand a joke. The last one would have made his monkey face, not understanding.

She is a comedian and the OTs post does not in any way state its anything apart from a comical strip. (despite a HUGE attempt to make it out as so)

Get a grip, shes a comedian not a ;woosh!!; terrorist, or etc. She says jokes to get a laugh. Honestly the seriously believers of 'sinister activity' are going to be severely disappointed...

that is bs for a start, Obama just smiled when others smiled, doesn't mean he "got" anything or felt it was funny

Bush was a joke but autocue obama is as bad

Ok sure this is ATS and we must all find flaws within everything... But honestly the responses everyone is bringing to state hes some 'evil' man are bordering on pure stupidity.

HONESTLY while he could be some really evil, satanic worshipping dude... From what im seeing he is either;

1. Genuine
2. Genuine, yet controlled like a puppet by the so said evil 'd00ds' who only tell him what he needs to know in order to talk to the populace without fear/etc.

Seriously, at the most, Obama is just a pawn, thinking he is in control, and maybe not at all. But Obama is not evil, maybe the puppeteers controlling him, if any exist, but in no way is he evil. Trust me.

I have not mentioned "evil", so I don't need your trust on it, as you could not offer such assurances at any rate.

He is just another elected puppet who the masses have fallen for- the media love in with him is sickeneing- a quick precis of Obama the man, not the auto cue presidential man, shows the farce surrounding those who made him out to be a secular messiah

It wasn't funny,

two wrongs don't make a right, Rush said this, and Bush did that, doesn't excuse unacceptable behavior,

I am sorry to say some democrats are some of the most mean spirited people I have ever seen, especially after how they crucified Palin.

of course I guess this shouldn't surprise me when I take into consideration the killing of the unborn is their most important political platform.

Expect karma.

the american brand of "fascism", aka "progressives", always flourishes under democrat rule (though didn't do too badly under Bush admittedly)

Yes I think he is evil, why?

Obama Blocked Born Alive Infant Protection Act, A baby that survives a botched abortion should be left to die?

And we call ourselves civilized?

fair point, Obama the "man", not the media darling who they wouldn't even show smoking, is just another arrogant, "utopian"/totalitarian seeking liberal/leftist

His choice of church was also particularly "pleasant"

This was actually far more funny:



If we can't have a little humor in politics then maybe all is lost.

Yes it is funny. Some people want paranoia because they want power to be returned to these anachronistic medieval ancient regime fellas. Sour grapes...
I heard Limbaugh first in 1990 and I thought he was from the Moon or from another century... Except for his demonic fury with which he denounced everything that seemed to alleviate my dark picture of mankind... That was the hallmark of a true raging Nazi. (Matter of fact, he could be a reincarnation of Herman Goering... no, he is fat enough but Goering reportedly had better humor.)

Look, man, if good ole Rush jus' disappears tomorrow, I want you to make sure that you give a call to Mr. Obama, OK?
I'm going out fishin' meself...
I mean, it ain't OK in a freeee nation that people jus' disappear, right? (a except if theyre "Airaquis" in Airaq - which is luckily being democratized to boot... but I should rather say "republicanized" , right?)

2.) This is no different than Rush Limbaugh wanting the country to fail,

As others have said - that's not what he said.

He said he wanted OBAMA to fail because Obama is bad for this country.
If Obama fails then the country is better off - THAT is what he said.


To the topic of the 'joke' .... eh ... wasn't funny to me, but obviously it was to others. As long as those others also laugh when a commedian tells jokes that include the death of a democrat ... no problem.

We should have equal opportunity death jokes ... so here ya'll go ....

Subject: A TEST OF CHARACTER


This one is not easy to answer.

TEST OF MORALITY

The One-Question Test.

This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally. The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which you
will have to make a decision. Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous.

Please scroll down slowly and give due consideration to each line.

THE SITUATION:

You are in Florida , Miami to be specific. There is chaos all around you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding. This is a flood of biblical proportions. You are photojournalist working for a major newspaper, and
you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster. The situation is nearly hopeless..

You're trying to shoot career-making photos. There are houses and people
swirling around you, some disappearing under the water. Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.


THE TEST:

Suddenly you see a man and a woman in the water. They are
fighting for their lives, trying not to be taken down with the debris. You
move closer. Somehow they look familiar. You suddenly realize who they are.

It's Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi!! At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take them under forever. You have two options: You can save their lives or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the deaths of two of the world's most powerful people.


THE QUESTION:


Here's the question, and please give an honest answer...

Would you select high contrast color film, or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white?

Nice joke, just as off-color and funny as Wanda's. I can't believe things like this become split along party lines. I am a registered Republican, very Conservative, yet I voted for Obama, and can't stand to hear Rush Limbaugh speak. Either way, the joke was funny, and I didn't hear her call for his death. She pointed out an obvious drug problem.

I think the joke you just mentioned was far more threatening than Wanda's or that "Abort Obama" bumper sticker that got someone arrested.

The good thing in your joke, is you can plug and play any two celebrities/politicians into that joke and it will still be funny, and you can pick who gets offended!!

Didn't Hillary catch a lot of flack for mentioning the possibility of Obama not making it through the campaign? It was a real concern, the most Secret Service ever used, and yet for her to bring it up that fact was inflammatory to some.

Hmm.



Those weapons of mass destruction have got to be somewhere ... nope, no weapons over there ... maybe under here?”


Obama laughed at someone else joke.

Bush stood up and told his.

Which is the more tasteless, the one about the guy who is still alive, or the one where people are (still) coming back in body bags?

Political memories are so so short.... perspective please.

It's a roast folks. Grow a funny bone and get a sense of humor.
If you can't handle the comedy change the channel.

I'm getting tired of hearing all this whining. Really I am.
God forbid someone like R. Lee Ermey got into office. He'd sure as heck tell you what was on his mind. I can only imagine all the talking heads talking about his press conferences.

Has anyone watched the whole stand up yet?

She begins with picking on the first lady, which is hilarious..

Thank you. I am glad that someone else understands the difference between bush minor's tackiness and bad taste in making fun of the lies he told to send our troops off to die in Iraq and laughing at another person's attempts at humor.

A star for you.

see now this is the kind of uneducated, endoctrinated response of the typical left wing today, limbaugh does not want our country to fail, never said that did he!!!! he wants obozos socialist agenda to fail. see, the left likes to spin and take things out of context, just like the post you put up. you should check all the facts before posting something that makes you look uninformed................
dude.. i think youre imagining too much.
