Obama jokes about Burning Man

Postby Bless » Mon May 02, 2016 7:37 am

If you didn't catch it this weekend, Obama joked about his daughter attending TTITD during his last appearance at the annual White House correspondents' dinner.

Here's a clip of the joke: http://www.c-span.org/video/?c4591479/o ... g-man-joke

And here are the president's entire remarks: http://www.c-span.org/video/?c4589435/p ... hca-dinner

(Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to embed C-SPAN videos into ePlaya.)

Man, I'm going to miss him. How many years after he leaves the White House will it take for him to attend TTITD? I hope he camps with me. :mrgreen:
FUCK YOU, I'M A WIZARD. FUCK YOU, I'M A SHARK.

That was a joke? I thought jokes were supposed to be funny.

Yes, you would think he would be able to do just one thing right before he departs the office. :)

That joke was the only one that made the final cut. Here's all of the jokes that were written for the speech that never made it.

Firstly, I assume you directed this at me, so I will respond from that context.


You assume I hate Obama. I don't know the man. I harbor no such feelings for him.

You do not know me at all. I could easily make you look so foolish for making that statement about me, but I'll refrain from going that far into the drama pool.

My assumption is you assume anyone who does not like his politics must be racist. It certainly is simpler to play that card than to have an actual discussion about any given topic where a disagreement is reached.

If you believe he has done such a great job at being the leader of our country, then we will simply have to agree to disagree, as these types of discussions rarely prove beneficial to anyone. This is particularly true when one assumes a personal attack posture.

I'm going to make popcorn and settle in. Anyone else??

Let's have us a good old fashioned flame war, complete with throwing knives!

I hear a lot of people complain about our prez, and talk about how HE fucked everything up. They have little else to go on in order to articulate on his failures. Most of them just can't stand that there's a black man in the oval office, plain and simple. Simon hit the nail on the head. These same people thought Bush JR. ruled like a boss....Now that guy was a real dip-shit.
Sooner or later, it will get real strange...

I'm not implying that you're racist skuzzy, because I don't know you. But most Obama haters, can't really describe what their problem with him really is...

I wouldn't exactly vote him Best President Ever, but he's been better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick...

It was either him or Mittens...

I disagree, and feel this is as much "race baiting" as Simon using "white guys".
It seems so often, if and when a person criticizes this prez, they are called racist.
It's a good way to bully people from dissent, so in that, it's a good tool.
But, it's very reasonable not to like him, on many levels, and for many reasons.
Just like any prez, there are a myriad of excuses to not like them.

and, how is saying "he fucked up everything" any different, that what's been said about every prez probably since FDR.
Why, should he be immune?
If a person disagrees with what he's done, that's a logical statement, though subjective.

I fuckin love President Obama. Through all the birthing shit, racist crap and best of all the republicans cock blocking him at most every turn he has served us well with intelligence, grace and dignity.

I bet history will look favorably on him. :coffee:

The only thing Republicans hate more than being called racist is those coloreds. And science. And women, the gays, taxing billionaires, peacetime economies, brown people, observable reality, the working poor, the middle class, and other people's voting rights. STOP OPPRESSING Republicans!

Yes, anyone who doesn't like Obama is racist towards blacks. So, by that logic, anyone who didn't like Bush was racist against whites.

It has nothing to do with the way they run/ran the country like dictators with one Executive Order after another. Nothing to do with the wars on foreign soil or the unfettered immigration policies that have literally destroyed one community after another. Nothing to do with the lies, the outright Anti-American policies that place the rest of the world above our own citizens, the constant pandering to Corporate industry at the expense of our environment and small businesses. Yeah, none of that matters, it is just racism.

Real high level of political discourse here. :roll:

name policies and communities to truly elevate the discourse, pls

obama has been the more productive 'deporter-in-chief'

daca has given hope to families (and communities) that would like to avoid destruction

so, i'm at a bit of a loss here

I will be happy when he is gone and we have another person to poke our sticks at. Pretty much ran the course on this one.

The bar has been lowered. Let's see if it gets lowered more by the next person.
