Late Night Presidential Political Humor

On his plans for his remaining time in office: “After the midterm elections, my advisers asked me, ‘Mr. President, do you have a bucket list?’ And I said, ‘Well, I have something that rhymes with bucket list.’ Take executive action on immigration — bucket. New climate regulations — bucket. It’s the right thing to do.” […]

Anger Translator

I loved the Key and Peele skit from a few years ago, but here’s a new version, this time starring the real Obama: It gets off to a slow start, but I loved the ending, so watch the whole thing. And if you never watched the original, click the link above.

Hold On!

© Jack Ohman After spending years trying to get rid of him, the Republicans are so happy that Eric Holder is stepping down as Attorney General that they are refusing to confirm his replacement Loretta Lynch, which will give Holder another six months on the job. You would think that after holding him in contempt […]

Satire for the Win

Andy Borowitz has two hilarious satirical articles about the continued GOP attempts to sabotage Obama’s negotiations with Iran: “Kim Jong-Un Feels Snubbed By Absence of Letter from Republicans” has the North Korean dictator complaining that it was hurtful for Republicans to send a letter to Iran and ignore his country. After all, North Korea already […]

Awesome!

America is Awesome! The U.S. economy grew at a rollicking 5 percent rate in the third quarter. Oh, and it added 320,000 jobs in November, the best of its unprecedented 57 straight months of private-sector employment growth. Just in time for Christmas, the Dow just hit an all-time high and the uninsured rate is approaching […]

The End of Insanity

They say that insanity is when you keep doing the same thing, hoping for a different result. Well, we’ve had an embargo against Cuba for 53 years, hoping that would change Cuba. It hasn’t worked. So I am overjoyed that Obama has decided to change our relationship with Cuba. We are going to open an […]

Presidential Decree

Obama appears on The Colbert Report, and hilarity ensues: Or you can watch the whole episode. And remember, The Colbert Report goes away forever in less than two weeks.

Immigration. Blah blah blah

After Obama announced his executive action to clean up some of our immigration mess, Republicans screamed bloody murder. As reported here over a week ago: Rep Steve King said that Obama was “throwing this nation into a crisis”. And Senator Tom Coburn warned of “violent reactions” from people who disagree with Obama, saying “the country’s […]

Preemptive Attack

The GOP is promising to “swiftly counter Obama’s immigration moves“. Senator Mitch McConnell even gave a speech today and declared that Obama would regret ignoring the wishes of the American people. McConnell said “We’re considering a variety of options”, which is a reference to shutting down the government or impeaching Obama. According to the NY […]

GOP Irony

So in the aftermath of the midterm election, some emboldened Republicans are making plans. For example, Congressman Joe Barton (R-TX) has said that impeachment “would be a consideration” if Obama moves forward with executive action to solve our immigration problems. In addition, Republicans have said that they will force the approval of the Keystone XL […]

Distance?

Jon Stewart makes a very good point about Democrats who thought it was smart to distance themselves from the president. Who in the world would ever think that was a good idea? And why did Obama play along with it? Distancing themselves from Obama seems to have made the Democratic loss far worse. If there […]

Trust, But Verify

The supposed truce between Obama and the GOP continues to go down the drain:

Silver Lining?

According to Nate Silver, the Republicans now have a 73% chance of taking over the Senate (that’s a whopping 46 point lead). So Barack Obama will face a hostile Congress, including a Senate that probably won’t confirm any of his nominees. But in this video, Hillary Clinton (or at least, someone playing her) finds something […]

Abuse of Power

Wow. Just wow. I knew that Republicans were the party of no, but I didn’t realize that they would argue that it would be an abuse of power to just do your frickin’ job. So here is the situation. Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder has resigned. Obama will now nominate someone, who has to be […]

Laboring under a Lie

A few weeks ago the Supreme court unanimously ruled that Obama had exceeded his constitutional authority by making “recess appointments” to the National Labor Relations Board. Recess appointments are specifically authorized by the constitution, and Obama used them because Republicans have been failing to approve many of his appointments to critical government jobs. But the […]
