Even Jon Stewart is fed up with Barack Obama

Jon Stewart: Washington, we have a problemThe Temple of Obama is crumbling from assault by disaffected Democrats and liberals who join the growing ranks of Americans who feel sold out by the one-time agent of change.

Even comedian Jon Stewart, a one-time Obama cheerleader, is soured.

Stewart recently unloaded on Obama for using an elementary school classroom for a full-fledged photo op — complete with teleprompters.

Stewart wonders why the President felt he had to be scripted and controlled by teleprompter in front of a bunch of kids.

Good question. Stewart’s doubts are being echoed throughout Democratic and liberal circles.

Even die-hard supporters admit disappointment with the President of late and his chorus of critics is growing daily.

    Pretty sad. When I see Ron Paul speak, he can give an hour-long talk and barely even glance at his notes.

    Why? Because he knows what he’s talking about.

    Obama can’t even talk to kids wothout a carefully written script? What a pathetic joke we have in the White House. An utter freakin’ joke.

    Impeach this loser before he embarrasses us even further.

    We could handle the embarrassment, but not the continual financial hemmoraging at the inept hands of he and his spendthrift party.

    It seems this is the last “bleeding out” of the American carcass with the soon to collapse Treasury bond market wrapping it up with the failure of our currency too.

    America is in harms way with these evil, village idiots in control.

    We couldn’t impeach G.W.Bush/Cheney and there’s no way that this guy will get impeached either. He and his corrupt party still have many admirers, little realizing they are as deer in the headlights of the “big O’s” debt loaded semi…! : |

    Well, Ron Paul has another advantage — he focuses on the truth or what he believes to be the truth. Oh, and he also is not forever attempting to arse-kiss every lousy faction within his party and the other party.;-)

    Well I guess the only way to do that is to catch him getting a hummer in the Oval Office. Where’s Monica when her country needs her?

    I don’t believe the use of the teleprompters are all his idea. I am of the mind that his team is pushing for him to use those prompters in order to show the president in a better light. Given our word bumbling, phrase stumbling last president.

    This does not make the use of them any better given that he was at an elementry school. Unless he feared from the purity with which childhood questions always derive. The shades of grey in the world don’t impress on a childs mind like that of adults. To our youth, there is only good or bad.

    This shows these ideas he spouts are not his own and he is merely good at reading what he is told. He’s as bad as Junior without the teleprompter.

    You take a mortal man
    And put him in control
    Watch him become a god
    Watch peoples’ heads a-roll

    Just like the Pied Piper
    Led rats through the streets
    Dance like the marionette
    Swaying to the Symphony
    Of Destruction
    – Megadeth, “Symphony of Destruction”

    Stewart, like so many other members of the elitist crust that covers the surface of the modern liberal movement, quickly find themselves in a wagon with its wheels coming off because their control of the Democratic party is almost always top-heavy and fleeting, meaning they can never really build ground-level support from the majority of the voters who, unlike the crust, are not extremists hiding in the fetid guise of progressivism.

    A simply reason for this is that these folks have absolutely no connection with the working families of America. Indeed, they have a loathing and hatred for the regular American that they cannot long disguise. One need only go to fora where such elites congregate — Reader’s Rant would be a good one — to see how routinely the working American family is denigrated, reviled, cursed, and belittled. all with a smirk and a nod to the knowing.;-)

    Try not to be an arrogant asshole.

    Impossible for Stewart.

  11. griff   February 1, 2010 at 10:45 pm

    Yeah, but we Americans don’t go for that kind of realism. We prefer our talking points spoon-fed and filtered.

  12. griff   February 1, 2010 at 10:47 pm

    Touche’. I used to watch Stewart and Colbert all the time, but no more. I just can’t find any humor in it any more.

    “Holier than thou” never worked for me…

    Yo logtroll,

    I’m glad you refer to others as “General” too. Now I realize I took you too seriously with my rebuttals. It’s simply the way you express yourself; ie., “your style”. Sorry.

    My bad… : )

    General Lee, I address people as “hey, you” because of advancing geezerishness. Thank you for suggesting that I have style, of any sort.

    A while back, after constant harassment for never being serious enough, I checked my insurance policy to see if treatment for superfluous jocosity might be covered. Land o’goshen it was! So I signed up for a series of VERY expensive sessions with a noted psychobabblist. After EIGHTEEN YEARS of being made to feel bad about making fun of virtually everything, I became stunningly serious. When I submitted my claim to the insurance company for the costs, they denied it.

    The reason, “They were just joking!!”

    Bad as it might get, don’t ever stop enjoying it!
