Seems a bit childish to pick on the president over his dependancy on teleprompters. Look, is this really an issue that needs to be addressed? Don't we have bigger issues that we need to be on his case about?

Seems pety to me.

First they feel brave enough to poke fun of 0bama on his most outlandish and defensible gaffes, and eventually they will treat 0bama like any other president, and hold him accountable. Last year even 0bama making fun of the participants in the Special Olympics was considered off limits.

Relax, it was meant to be lighthearted. At least I thought I conveyed that anyways.

It's a promising sign that the media's slobbering love affair with Obama is starting to dwindle a bit.

More right wing projecting. Just because the right doesn't have a sense of humor about itself, doesn't mean the left doesn't.

We've been telling you guys that Stewart is funny for years. Nice to see you finally noticed.

Here we go with the "projecting" again. Unlike many on here, I don't take politics too seriously. I got a kick out of Bush's misspeaks just as I do Obama's reliance on teleprompters. As for Stewart's show, I don't watch much TV so I'll have to take your word for it.

By the way, how is that whole "measuring up" thing coming along?

Nah, unlike most posters on this board, Jon Stewart is actually funny.
