Ahhhh, we all know what the response from the Left would be if Bush had made such a crass joke.

Never mind the fact that obama and his "drones" have killed a record number of civilians in Afghanistan.

44 - Obama drone joke: Was it offensive?

Quote:
"You have to wonder why in the world the president's speech writers would think it was a good idea to throw a joke about predator drones into the president's speech during the White House Correspondent's Dinner, given that an estimated one-third of drone casualties, or between 289 and 378, have been civilians," wrote Adam Serwer at the American Prospect.

"Let's be honest, fellow progressives, we'd be all over Bush if he made the same 'predator drone' joke Obama told last night," Philadelphia Daily News' Will Bunch tweeted.
That is asking for miracles - intellectual honesty from the Left. They excel at hypocrisy and double standards.

Apparently the brothers Jonas are none too pleased.

Quote:
The quip drew laughter from the audience, but the brothers Joe, Kevin and Nick were not among them, according to the Washington Examiner.

The guys apparently took offense to the suggestion they might hit on underage girls.

“Seriously, we’re not pedophiles,” Nick told the Washington Examiner.

Actually, informed left leaning sources, the kind you never listen to, have been all over this.

Bad joke indeed. Joking about how you kill people is never funny.

Give me a fing break. I don't care about this stupid joke. Predator drones are awesome and we eliminated so many Islamo murderers with them. I hope Obama has plenty more predator drones strikes in store for our enemies.

As a 15-year USAF veteran, I find it very unamusing to poke fun at our defensive arsenal and advanced tactics, especially at a time when America is more vulnerable than ever with an overly apologetic "Commander-in-Chief" (pukes).

The joke is Obama even remotely considering to open his mouth about any topic related to our national defense, because he was studying Socialism while others were serving.

This unfunny joke was written by some bum who probably went to college with Barry and used to take smoke breaks with him at the quad at Harvard, bitching about how awful Americans are.

God Bless every man and woman in uniform serving our country under this twit.

I'm appalled by this! I mean, how the hell did the Jonas Brothers get invited to the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner?!

I find it somewhat less appalling than Bush's "searching for WMD's" video earlier this decade. Obama jobs about a predator drone, Bush makes light of starting a war under false pretenses in which 5,000 soldiers have died.

Is that a good enough comparison for ya? Stop manufacturing outrage because the right will always lose.

Rather than going on a 20 talking-point tour of conservative propaganda, perhaps you should hear the joke. He wasn't making fun of anything in the military arsenal. He was making fun of the Jonas brothers.

If this is the best Sanrene can come up with after spending 11 hours searching today (considering his 2% inflation thread was discredited), then I'd say Obama's doing pretty well!

Actually, I think I read the jokes came from Comedy Central writers.

Yeah, basically calling them pedophiles, which they took offense to...and rightly so.

Really, you should at least educate and enlighten yourself when making comments about other people's posting habits.......cause you are wrong, as usual.

My other thread was discredited? Keep on hoping and praying for that to ever come to pass.
