    Of all the more deserving late night shows… Jay Leno is a bitter reactionary constantly attacking the President, his time has passed, time to be a spokesperson for Enbrel, Jay.

    He’s only appearing for damage control…too late.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Until Letterman became an Obama spokesman and representing the DNC, I watched Dave. I don’t watch Leno, but I can honestly say that Jay, like Johnny Carson before him, is an equal-opportunity offender. Because the Mainstream Media and American entertainment in general has this slobbering love affair with ‘Bama, it only SEEMS that ANY joke against Obama and/or his administration is a hateful thing. Pot…meet kettle.

  • Butch Giondomenico

    Maybe NBC should give him his own talk show when he gets out of office..He is a celebrity and Hollywood loves him..He love the limelight.

  • Butch Giondomenico

    Better yet maybe he can go on the O’reily factor and answer the serious questions that the media doesn’t ask him. ABC,CBS,NBC give him a free pass.

    @ Ralph,

    Two of every three jokes in Jay’s monologues contain slanderous red meat, Obama’s policies prevented another Depression and brought us the recovery, more private sector jobs created in his first two years than GWB’s entire two terms yet Jay continues to pretend every economic setback is POTUS’ fault while ignoring the gerrymandered obstructionist Congress.

    Senile loser Leno can’t stand toe to toe with our President intellectually so he shrivels in his presence, waits for him to leave then spreads more disinfo. His old boys club humor has weakened the Tonight Show brand so severely who knows if it will even survive another generation.

    One way to try and stop someone from making jokes about you is to pay that person a visit.
