obama a brilliant comedian?

When I saw a Bloomberg headline promising Barack Obama's 10 best one-liners from press dinner last night, I immediately clicked on it. Because I remember his joke about John Boehner being not natural and it was pretty funny.You may know me, I thought Barack Obama's 2004 convention speech was a piece of cardboard. And I am uneasy about human civilization in general, when I think how Obama is the only editor of the Harvard Law Review who never wrote an article, and wasn't allowed into Professors Dershowitz's class because his grades were not good enough, but went on to be a professor of Constitutional law. So I have to wonder whether Obama wrote his own jokes, but whoever wrote them they are really funny.

indeed, I mentioned it in the "Summer Holiday" thread, where we discuss how Obama whiles away the hours when the golf course is closedQuoteOriginally posted by: ppauperI guess the A-listers no longer care to be seen with him as the MC was Joel McHale from The Soup which ran on E!

He really is a funny guy. And a moral man too, unlike Bill Clinton. He could have been a cool guy, where there is nothing wrong with being average. It is too bad he was ruined by his upbringing. Society did this to him and made him what he is today, something like the Phantom of the Opera.I always see flashes, and hold out hope he could see the light, and not ruin the country. But he is too injured.There are movies like "Scrooge" and "Pretty Woman" that show a bad man being transformed by some experience. You might think being called "articulate" by Joe Biden would give Obama a distaste for crazy superficial liberals. But it seems to be what he was raised on, and all he knows.He would also have to divorce his wife to move on from that crazy reality. And he seems like a loyal guy, in that area.

Obama is so easy to impersonate because he is fake. He is a comedian impersonating a politician, talking about the "Maldives" or whatever. This is the happy person who Obama could have been if liberals weren't angry.

Stick to the day job and to the knitting.
Step over the gap, not into it. Watch the space between platform and train.

The women who attend him probably don't dare to tell him to step back.Maybe they aren't aware Obama is due to close Guantanamo.
