Why comedians and ‘SNL’ are
shielding President Obama

New York Post, by Kyle Smith

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/24/2014 4:51:38 AM

At last, we know the reason why comedy writers don’t make fun of President Obama much. It turns out the man is completely unmockable. We learn this from Jim Downey, the longtime “Saturday Night Live” specialist in political japery. “If I had to describe Obama as a comedy project, I would say, ‘Degree of difficulty, 10 point 10,’” the writer says in the expanded new edition of the “SNL” oral history book, “Live from New York.” “It’s like being a rock climber looking up at a thousand-foot-high face of solid obsidian, polished and oiled,” Downey says. “There’s not a single thing to grab

SNL "humor" is meant to eviscerate conservatives and anything not liberal in society.

The real, and unspoken elephant in the room, is fear, plain and simple. It´s not just that SNL agrees with him, it´s that they´re afraid of being called racists. The boy, the Mooche, holder, and the veep provide a wealth of unintentional comedy, and along with the sycophantic Marxist make believe media, it writes itself. JMHO.

Oh, please, these comics are making excuses. The real reason they are not mocking Obama is because most of them are of the liberal persuasion and don´t want to offend a friend. Comics have also been dumbed down by political correctness and are thus afraid of pointing to the incompetence of a man who´s black in case it´s perceived to be racist.

All in all, it´s a form of protection racket.

Self-described comedy guru and egocentric chuckle-crafter Jim Downey obviously suffers from a terminal case of Can’t-See-Forest-For-Trees Syndrome.

Obama inspires and delivers a barrel of laughs if only one knows how to uncork it. Downey doesn’t.

FTA:"We just stopped doing anything which could even be misinterpreted as a criticism of Obama.”
Yeah, we noticed.


The GOP should take heart, though - Abe Lincoln was relentlessly portrayed as an ape, clumsy, and ugly or worse. Yet, Democrats would just love to have a former President who could measure up in history. Oh, yeah, the GOP also had Teddy Roosevelt. Millions of children grew up with a favorite "Teddy bear". There is no FDR or JFK or Woodrow Wilson favorite toy.

Not a single hook or thing to grab onto?

There´s no way to lampoon his whistling, stammering, tennis match-viewer speaking style? Couldn´t possibly get laughs from his chicken strut and Il Duce chin poses?

It wouldn´t be funny for a good Obama imitator to do vacationing Barry chasing an ice cream cone with his tongue while watching a cute guy walk by?

A tag team of Michelle, Valerie Jarrett, Sheila Jackson-Lee, Maxine Waters, and Frederica Wilson taking turns nagging Barry with different complaints wouldn´t be funny?

A skit of hacker Barry on the golf course being interrupted by phone calls from the Pentagon, State Department, the IRS, Justice, the Federal Reserve and watching him duck responsibility couldn´t possibly be done and get laughs?

Maybe SNL needs better writers than the traditional Al Franken type.

Actually, SNL grad Jimmy Call n has been picking some low-hanging comedy fruit at Obama´s expense. Mostly superficial stuff, but it has been biting occasionally. Meanwhile, Fallon has been doing what he can to make Hillary look good.

SNL will not mock Dems until after the 2014 mid-term election, at which point they will actually poke fun of Obama in ways to make Hillary seem like the real grown-up in his administration. You will finally see Obama being attacked personally, rather than superficially, so as to make Hillary seem presidential and above the fray. You´ll probably seem skits with Obama and Republican contenders (Rick Perry, Marco Rubio, Ron Paul, Paul Ryan, and they´ll even throw Sarah Palin again) so that they can mock and weaken their candidacies.

Above all, the goal is to carry the Left´s water through another presidential election.

Artistic integrity (a phrase that should never appear in the same sentence with “Saturday Night Live”) has absolutely nothing to do with it.

SNL is owned by NBCUniversal Television, which is a division of NBCUniversal Inc. Another division of NBCUniversal Inc. is NBC News. The others include three Telemundo channels, CNBC, MSNBC, NBC.com, NBCNews.com, and the fine-arts-turned-all-LGBT-all-the-time channel Bravo.

If you want to see the resident puppet mocked and satirized, pray that Charles and David Koch buy NBCUnlversal Inc. and replace 100% of the SNL “talent” – both on-camera and –off -- with any 50 randomly selected LDotters.

Immigration Agent Union: Obama

The Obama administration has “widened the loopholes” that Islamic State and other extremist fighters could use to enter the United States, a leading union of immigration officials says. In a statement obtained by National Review Online, the U.S. National Citizenship and Immigration Services Council, a union representing 12,000 federal immigration agents, sounded the alarm that not only could jihadists “slip across our porous southern border,” but that fighters could also “exploit our loose and lax visa policies to gain entry to the United States.” USCIS cites two main issues: a dearth of resources for Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents for enforcement and

A man who’s a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, a better political director than his political directors, and who knows more about policy than his policy advisors must surely also be a better general than his generals, no? The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said. The requirements for strikes in Syria against the extremist group Islamic State will be far more stringent than those targeting

The president´s strategy of launching air strikes against ISIS and arming its opponents will not achieve the goal of "degrading and destroying" the group, according to 63 percent of National Journal´s Security Insiders. Some Insiders who said the campaign would meet its goals were confident in the ability of U.S. air power to tamp down ISIS. "Air strikes have already had a great effect—the situation on the ground in Iraq has stabilized." "There is much less than meets the eye with ISIS when it comes to military capability," one insider said. Other Insiders qualified their affirmative answers, predicting that the U.S. campaign would

During the 2014 primary elections, a ragtag group of unknowns took on the Goliaths and won. And no, I’m not talking about the Tea Party versus Establishment fight in the Republican Party. Those following election night coverage on the Internet this primary season may have noticed that a newcomer — the Ace of Spades Headquarters Decision Desk (that’s @AOSHQDD on Twitter) — often tallied the votes faster and called the results sooner than the Associated Press. The Decision Desk, run by blogger Brandon Finnigan as an extension of the conservative Ace of Spades blog, began as an idea a decade ago.

Congressman Jason Chaffetz broke this shocking news Wednesday that four known terrorists were apprehended at the US border in Texas on September 10 – the day before the 13th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks. Chaffetz questioned Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson on whether he is “aware of any apprehensions of suspected or known terrorists.” Johnson dodged the question. Tonight, Rep. Chaffetz told Megyn Kelly there were four terrorists arrested crossing the US border in Texas on September 10. “There were actually four individuals trying to cross through the Texas border, who were apprehended at two different stations, that do have ties to known terrorist

Two years after initiating their first ride, however, the organization has disbanded, tens of thousands of dollars are unaccounted for and some are accusing the man behind the project of having broken the law. Casey Miller, along with five other participants, set out on a long-distance bike ride from Seattle, Wash. to Washington, D.C.

SANTA ROSA BEACH, Florida – Mike Huckabee bought a beachfront lot here in 2009, a year after his failed bid for the Republican presidential nomination. A longtime friend and political ally of the former Arkansas governor bought the lot next door. They planned to build $3 million vacation villas side-by-side, each with a pool and sweeping views of Walton County’s renowned sugary sand beaches and the azure waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The only hitch was that their lots lay on a severely eroding beach. Under state regulations, they couldn’t build on the seaward side of the sand dune nearest
