The POTUS with the most-est preparing his comedy monologue

Jimmy Kimmel might be the high power entertainment at this year's White House Correspondent's Dinner Saturday night but don't write off the president's comedy material just yet. We are told by a senior administration official a White House brainpower trust including the President’s head speechwriter Jon Favreau, David Axelrod, and speechwriter David Litt are hard at work. Presidents have typically had some funny zingers prepared for their remarks for this annual dinner with the press that covers the White House.

And it appears the fun is already starting.

An official told us on background that when he wasn’t busy power lunching at Spago and ducking the paparazzi, former White House speechwriter turned LA heartthrob Jon Lovett has been offering suggestions – the offensive kind.
Can’t wait to see if those make it into the final draft!

      CNN seems to be the new comedy site. We get this story, a story about the "slo-burn" stories about BO on Leno and Michele O on another comedy show, but nothing about the EPA leader Obama appointed talking about his "oversight" of the oil companies. We also get nothing about Obama lieing about what a repub said about the college loan program.
      Repubs will need to beat the dems and the media shills like CNN, but "Yes They Can".

        The Republican Party is a lost cause foaming at the mouth with people like yourself needing an insane asylm which can keep them sedated and out of the public eye. Please send your insane asylm pics to CNN and mark in crayon that it urgent. Praising the free advise of another Republican who just hates white trash talking like they know something when they are pawns of a corrupt political party.

        I think you people are hilarious the way you ATTEMPT to call Obama a liar, without even so much as blinking at the lie-by-the-minute candidate, Mitt Romney. It's utterly ridiculous. Mittens changes his position about every single thing he has ever said. It's so sickening. EVERY SINGLE NEWS AFFILIATE CAN DEMONSTRATE (ON ANY GIVEN POSITION) OCCASIONS WHERE ROMNEY HAS SAID ONE THING ONE DAY, THEN CHANGED HIS POSITION HOURS, DAYS, MONTHS, YEARS LATER! And, the saga continues every time he opens his mouth.

        OK. Just to be clear. So ,is the 200? youtube clip the solid and irrefutible evidence that Obama is a liar?? I just want to be sure I'm understanding the argument. Because folks' comments seem to be pretty insistent that Obama is a complete and utter liar because of this clip. My next question is, what do you think of Romney? There are dozens of clips and wriiten statements of his blatant lies.

        @ Steveo Saying the tax rate is 35% is one thing. Allowing companies to write off everything under the sun, and giving them subsidies which factually means that most in the end, pay 12.1%. The fact remains most corporations when all is said and done pay 12.1%, and some even learn exactly how to work it so they pay no tax.

        As I have said before....you can claim anything but where are your links to prove it?

        I say hurrah for Margaret Sanger...a true heroine for women.

        @Jean2009,

        We can argue the tax rates all day long but the current top tax rate is 35%! Based on the article I shared yesterday, even the president is suggesting it is too high! You mentioned write offs. That is a Congressional issue, jean2009. Neither party has the courage to tackle the tax code, neither one! Pelosi didn't, Rangle didn't, Boehner didn't, and Canter didn't!

        As far as Sanger being a champion of women goes, maybe, but with the exception of poor and minority women! But yeah Sanger, right???

        Margaret Sanger I don't remember bringing up Margaret Sanger...sorry I miss the relevance, but I guess morons will believe any propaganda. I'm of the firm belief that a woman's body is her own and final decisions of how it is used belong to her. You may think this is: A Man's World...but in the end it is a woman's body and she decides.

        I am mystified with your obsession with GE corporation. You would think they are the sole business capable of employing U.S. citizens. However....it does look like they do employee many Americans and have plans to employee many thousands more.

        They are adding jobs and opening 3 new plants Ellisville,Miss; Auburn, Al; and Dayton, Oh....plus renovating a plant in Bucyrus, Ohio, plant in Texas and 14 other plants are slated for renovation..

        1. Once more Sanger created Planned Parenthood and she was involved in eugenics! Perhaps that explains the predominate presence of PP in poor and minority neighborhoods!

        2. I really have no issue with GE with one glaring exception:
        THE AMERICAN JOB CZAR IS IN CEO OF GE WHO IN TURN IS MOVING A DIVISION FROM THE US TO CHINA! You STILL don't see the irony??

        The Obama administration today is unveiling an overhaul of the corporate tax code, proposing to lower the top corporate income tax rate while eliminating a host of deductions and loopholes. The plan will be formally unveiled later today, but here are some of the important facts released already:
        – The administration is proposing a top corporate income tax rate of 28 percent, lowered from its current 35 percent.

        it appears the tax rate that would apply to large corporations, like GE (who paid nothing) would be that very same 35% I have been talking about!

Since you quoted from that address, can I assume you believe this? btw, I have read other articles that shows Sanger was involved in eugenics! i guess it depends on what propaganda YOU choose to believe or don't believe!!

        April 30, 2012 at 10:09 pm |
      • jean2009

        @Steveo I commend him....28% with no write-offs....good for him. That would mean corporations will no longer be paying 12.1% or 0%.
        So you are up in arms that several corporations are paying no taxes. I agree! Now pitch in and go after oil and farm subsidies...which is welfare for corporations.

        It seems 30 Major Corporations paid no tax over the last 3 years and 78 had one year during the last 3 that they paid no taxes, across the board the majority averaged 12.1%.

        http://thinkprogress.org/economy/2011/11/03/360185/30-corporations-no-taxes/

        "– Seventy-eight of the 280 companies paid zero or less in federal income taxes in at least one year from 2008 to 2010…In the years they paid no income tax, these companies earned $156 billion in pretax U.S. profits. But instead of paying $55 billion in income taxes as the 35 percent corporate tax rate seems to require, these companies generated so many excess tax breaks that they reported negative taxes (often receiving outright tax rebate checks from the U.S. Treasury), totaling $21.8 billion. These companies’ “negative tax rates” mean that they made more after taxes than before taxes in those no-tax years."

        Chew on that for awhile.... the next time you complain about some poor family who can barely put food on the table getting what they paid in taxes back.

        Remember George W. Bush's $300 senior citizen tax rebate checks? No way does that compare to the welfare rebates big corp is harvesting from the federal treasury each year and bleeding it dry.

      • Steveo

        @jean2009,

        I commend te president for at least thinking about doing something about corporate tax rates. I do find it ironic that the target has been the rich "not paying their fair share" all the while corporations like GE and Apple paid zero! Would it make more sense to go after them rather than rich individuals?

        As for your weak attempt at slamming me over poor folks who can barely feed their families, I know they exist and I know they need help. I also know this Jean2009, everybody getting a welfare check does not need it! You KNOW that too, right?? The problem Jean is all you want to do is cut the military and I submit there is waste there. How about you submit, welfare fraud is a an issue as well! There is plenty of room to trim both programs!

      At a time when Americans are tightening their belts, and experiencing hard economic times, Obama is now giving 147 million in tax payer dollars to ... the Palestinians. Yes, the same Palestinians who danced in the streets, and cheered on 9-11, when over 3,000 innocent Americans were slaughtered ... and, the same Palestinians who are governed by Hamas, an America hating, Islamic terrorist organization.

    Obama said his father served in WW II? Barack's father served in WW II?
    He said so in a speech. Here is an 18 second video:
    CNN News clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fv4jnlkxOaw
    Is he a compulsive liar? Were there no reporters who checked or double checked these statements and called the party on this? They did for everyone else. Why not him?
    Like it or not, here are the facts:
    Barack Hussein Obama Sr. (Obama's father) Born: 4/4/36 Died: 11/24/82 at the age of 46.
    He was 5 years old when WW II started, and less than 9 1/2 yrs old when it ended.

    Lolo Soetoro (Obama's step father) Born: January 2,1935 Died: 3/2/87 at the age of 52.
    He was 6 years old when WW II started, and 10 years old when it ended.

      I assure you President Obama knows who his grandfather was, which branch, and where and when he served, and that he is buried at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl. Anyone reading one of his biographical books knows these facts.

      Ask yourself, why would he change what he knows, and others know and what has been recorded many times?....he wouldn't. It would serve him no purpose.

        The White House Press Correspondents dinner has been a tradition since 1914 so a lot of presidents have attended the celebration and rubbed elbows with celebs. As with all non-profit organization they do good work while raising funds.

        "Since 1991, the WHCA has awarded nearly $600,000 in scholarships. The success of this dinner allows members of the White House press corps to give back to the next generation of reporters. READ MORE about this year's scholarships."

      If you're such a fan of Obama, buy his comedy album when it comes out, or watch him on late night ... but, don't gamble the future of America, by betting our survival on this loser. Thanks to Obama, over 5 trillion has been squandered in just 3 1/2 years ... our credit score has been downgraded ... our debt has just exceeded our GDP ... and, Obama wants to double down on his pathetic failed policies. Unlike you, I love America more than Obama.

        To Jerry .. yes, former president Clinton did deregulate, and he taxed the rich, while lowering the taxes on the middle class and poor .. and we had some really productive years because of his intelligent reasoning .. between the years 1992 – 2000. My husband couldn't have saved nearly what he did .. the stock market was doing well, just like today .. and we wouldn't be in this house if it weren't for then President Clinton. So, Jerry, try to bone up on your history before you say things that make people think you're a bone head with no meat. You keep proving them right.

        @norma...you have very selective memory...or you are just stupid.. Clinto had it all his way for his first two years (both legislative branches were demos)...screawed things up good...but he deregulated the financial industry...regulations that allowed the melt down of 2008...while obama was campaigning for all it was worth to incite panic in the markets....all documented history.

    Where is the story about obama wanting to change policy to allow Iran to manufacture nuke fuel?

      Yes they can – watch MSDNC and you will see what I am talking about. Comrad Chris Matthews has no problem telling his viewers he gets a chill up his leg when he listens to BO. This is the same clown who spoke about the grand wizard being on the repub side. Matthews was talking about Romneys speech this past week. I watched Romney's speech and I counted 15 lies in less than 5 minutes of Matthews soliloquy of Obama. The left forced Beck of the air, but they support the like of Matthews, Schultz, Sharpton and the rest of the gang. LOL!!!

    Reduced unemployment after the Great Recession caused by the Republican President George W. Bush.

    Improved Americas out look, international relations with most of the countries in the world.

    Provided needed suggestions to get a jobs bill passed through Congress.

    Provided cuts in the nations spending to reduce our national debt.

    And has been the most unusual, most talented President in history.

This is why we call him the Campaigner President...he is interested in reelection and campaigning...has spent his three plus years as a salesman-in-chief... but then, he has no record of accomplishment to run on. Even the Supreme Court is dismanteling his goofy health care and imigration legal mess. The economy is a mess, dollar sinking, oil prices up, inflation...and it goes on and on.. horrible mess. Someday, history will remember him for this...a bafoon like Carter..

I guess if you ignore the DOZENS of videos (which are growing by the day the more he speaks), documents, statements, etc.. of his own lie-telling episodes, he's an honest guy.
