The so-called comedians on television have finally found a spine now that Barack Obama is a national punchline following his Mile High mauling. Sure took long enough.
Even the liberals are laughing at him.
In the wake of President’s Obama’s brutal debate drubbing at the hands of Mitt Romney, the president’s own chums, supporters and even friendly late-night comedians couldn’t help but make him a punch line yesterday.
“The consensus is that Mitt Romney won the presidential debate last night. The only people who thought Obama won were the replacement refs,” Jay Leno joked.
“They’re saying close to 60 million people may have watched the debate. In fact, the only person who didn’t tune in . . . I think was President Obama.”
“What a crowd! You sound like Republicans watching last night’s debate.”
Jimmy Fallon couldn’t resist getting his own digs in.
“That’s right, after months of buildup, last night was the first presidential debate at the University of Denver. Of course, a lot of big names didn’t show up to the event — Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, President Obama . . .” he said on “Late Night” last night.
“Daily Show” host Jon Stewart joined the chorus, tearing into Obama as hard as he usually shreds Republicans.
“I’m sure President Obama now realizes, ‘Oh, preseason’s over, I should probably familiarize myself with my presidency and learn some of the various numbers and things that go along with it,’ ” Stewart said on “Good Morning America.”
He compared Obama’s debating to Muhammad Ali’s boxing.
“It’s the rope-a-dope, but instead of letting your opponent punch himself out, you just get beat up,” Stewart said.
All well and good, but where have these folks been since 2009?
