    The Joke’s On Us: Watch Obama and Romney Poke Fun at Themselves, Each Other

    Amid one of the most hotly contested elections in U.S. history President Obama and his challenger Governor Mitt Romney take the night off from dirty politics and campaign stops to humor us a little bit.

    Poking fun at themselves and each other, the duo delivers a host of zingers and one liners to an audience of well-off New Yorkers, religious leaders, political insiders and business interests.

    While funny to watch, as it lightens the mood during this tense election cycle, one can’t help but wonder whether all of these people – including the Presidential candidates themselves – know that this whole thing is nothing more than an elaborate joke on the American people.

    Watch and be entertained this Friday by the latest episode in this year’s Election Cycle American Idol.

    Governor Romney:

    The president’s remarks tonight are brought to you by the letter O and the number 16 trillion.

    President Obama:

     In less than three weeks voters in states like Ohio, Virgina and Florida will decide this incredibly important election, which begs the question…. What are we doing here?

        Hiring comedy writers will not make either of these guys funny. But you can bet they laugh behind our backs all the time.

        It is sad that many of the people will vote for a president based on their perceived ability as stand up comics. The destruction of our way of life is not funny.

        Why would anyone actually vote for either of these ass clowns? I would rather watch them get eaten by one of the tigers in their circus.

        Folks, take it for what it is: another popularity event. Don’t add or take anything away from it.
        When it comes to voting, remember what Obama said,you can tell alot about him from who he surrounds himself with. His staff is full of communists and criminals.
        As for not voting; how many rights will you give up? 2nd amendment or the 1st? They are next and probably sooner than we think.
        An average election only has about 23-26% voting and it is dwindling. They(ptb)take that as a sign of apathy on the part of the average American, meaning most don’t care what they(ptb-elected) do. Notice how the candidates are always going after the independants? Now if 60-80% vote and 60% of all voters are non party affiliated, then they have an even bigger issue.
        Everything about voting blocks(i.e. college students/young,gender,race,rural vs city, income groups,etc.) is about dividing and discouraging us.
        I vote more against an individual than for one.
        Voting to me isn’t just a right, it is a means to combat the greater of two evils. I’m not a Repub. nor Demo. by any means. I’ll give a Romney a chance verses what is presently there and his criminal staff.
        The only reason it doesn’t appear to make a different is because, as a whole, we are giving away our rights.
        Many on here know and understand the farce that is called a legal system and the judges. The elections may very well be rigged, but I’ll not go without fighting to keep mine and everyone else’s rights.
        United (as voters) we can reverse TSA,Homeland terror(Gov’t). It’ll take work, time and some sacrific, and with God’s help and guidance, a victory over these criminally thinking people.
        It is said “Evil prevails when good men do nothing”.
        I prep for the worse and pray for the best.
        I am one vote, yet one they can’t discourage.

            if ron paul had a chance i would vote for him, but he dosnt. if you vote for him its a vote for obama. he will only get 2-5 percent and thats it. your right obama and mitt are not washington but at least mitt likes america. if we get someone to slow down our destruction at least we have time to possibly get a better candidate (ron paul) in the next election. if obama gets back in then, we are in big trouble.

          • Why would anyone assume that Romney will be an improvement? For all any of you know he could be twice as bad as Obama.

            Bush brought us the Patriot Act. Obama signed the hideous NDAA. Has Romney given the slightest indication he will reverse these horrible codifications of tyranny? No, he hasn’t. So what the hell is the argument that justifies a vote for Romney? What is even close to being as important as this? If you vote, you legitimize a system that is actively planning to subjugate you and kill you for any or no reason. Keep voting, keep supporting the very beast that will devour you But, at least you will have the right to complain if you vote….wow.

            Mule, TPTB and in many places throughout the world, they think the average American is weak. How do you reverse the bs upon us? Repeal them and stay within the frame work of the constitution. In too many states, voting has been over turned by the courts (they have stolen the votes and violated the constitution).
            The out cry has to be loud and clear. I read where many say tar and feather em or hang them. What rule of law should be used? The CONSTITUTION. What we are voting or choosing is the speed at which the constitution is being eradicated/abolished. Slow the train and just maybe we can get more people willing to fight off this attack. I swore to defend this nation and constitution from both foreign and domestic enemies. We are not fighting foreign enemies but the domestic ones.

            Voting back & forth between parties and nothing changes is the definition of insanity and stupidity. People get mad when u point that out because they don’t like having to face the fact that they’ve been scammed and their belief system is based on obvious lies.

          DRD Thank you for a wonderful post! I am with you on this and I will tell you why. I have NEVER voted nor even registered. I always believed our votes never counted that it was decided by the electoral college. BUT something happened to me yesterday. I was drivin on my way to the grocery store in my lil rural town. same route I take evvery Thurs to go to the grocery store. I noticed something. In a small area of the street are smale homes shacks really. Lower income families. They ALL had Obummer signs. I had something just occur to me. My hubby works his ass off so those in these homes that I know are paid off and have better cars than we do can mooch off of him. I felt a little agrivated. With a toddler in tow I diecided to make a turn to go register. Alond that road were normal middle class families with signs that read, I built this I am voting to keep it. Now I am not saying either is the best. But I KNOW if I do not make a logical choice I have not excersised my RIGHT that MANY died fighting to keep alive for me and YOU! I looked at my lil one and said well what the hell it may be a gamble or a childish bit of hope that something will change BUT it is my responsibilty to vote. It is my job as a parent. how can I bitch and moan if I pass on a right. how can I gove up what las bit of freedom we have. It may be that last chance this country may have. Yes I can write in a name but not enough people will be doing that in al reality to accomplish anything. I will do the same and vote against something. It is not perfect but I believe it can change history has shown that nations fall and rise again.maybe we are on the down swing but I will exercise what is left of my rights. I will at least know I tried my best. I will not just go quietly into the night without doing what I can. You can all say I am stupid. I know not one is perfect but I can not do nothing but bitch about it and write about it, I want to try to make a difference. I love this country, what it was and what it could be. I will enjoy every right I have until I have no more. As far as anyone who says they are both evil well you can just stay home or in your bunker and do nothing but waait for the hatchet to fall but I am not giving up hope, I have faith in God and my fellow Americans that we will ultimatly have a turnaround and something good will come from all of this. Pollyanna in me I guess or just the mom who will die trying

            justincase, no, thank you. I pray that the Lord protect you and your family. I too am passionate about my love for this country. In 1962, as a child, I was at the cemetary in Hawaii and saw the 1,000′s of flags on each individual grave. I was in awe and have never forgotten it. All the young men and women who gave their lives for each of us. They held the torch and we must do the same and then pass it on to our children and grandchildren. The torch of sacrifice for others.
            Thank you again, enjoy motherhood and marriage, your sincere reply gives me hope and brought a tear to eyes.
            Love you all.

      Etch a sketch rombot and stink bug BO, what a combination. Here’s the thing, whomever wins, as both candidates are horrible beyond words, the loser is as big on a piece of crap or bigger than the other. A good candidate should be trashing BO, and a good president would be up 450-88 on rombot. Both candidates suck swamp water. Rombot’s track record is what people should see, as a tiger does not change his stripes. Rombot has to be a good alternative for those that are anti-gun as he has proven this well in the past along with his support of trashing good American jobs to China. BO stink bug is printing up money to pay for everything and his beliefs on gun rights are frightening.

      BOTH candidates consider almost all of us as pond scum. So we are all royally f’ed with either of these two. I don’t even want to talk about it anymore because the JOKE is on us all as we all lose with whomever wins.

      We’re going to have an economic crash at some point. Europe will have theirs within the next year and that probably trips it on for the USA, neither of them is stopping that.

      The only good thing about Mitt is you can trust he wants to do the right thing. He may not win that fight over the real power brokers, but his intenstions are good.

        Good points, lena. Obama shakes hands with anti-American convicts (Bill Ayers), bows to anti-American heads of state, sits in the pew of seething anti-American ‘church sermons’ and delivers caches for Mexican drug lords. Oh yeah, he’s on our side.

        Note to the Reynolds Aluminum Wrap brigade—stop enabling this freakin’ Marxist. Show up for Romney at the ballot box (hold your nose, if you have to), but make yourselves count at this crucial time of our lives.

        You’re right about everything but the price of gas.

        It isn’t rigged. Gas is expensive because the oil being refined into gas is expensive and lower quality than ever.

          Gas, like all commodities that are not being manipulated (i.e. silver) is expensive because the dollar is in a free fall!

      I’m rather miffed right now with some of the comment on this post. I guess I was hoping, when I found this site, that there would be a tad more support here for things that matter. I am DEFINATELY not a supporter of Obama and Romney was NOT my first choice, but, I do believe that the million dollar baby has a FAR better chance of *attempting* to save this great country than the muslim prince. All I see here is *vote for the guy who doesn’t have a chance in hell* so that our great and soverign muslim joke will be put back in office. I AM a firm believer in supporting the options that are best for US. I have been a prepper for quite some time and am devestated that so many lack the convictions that decency does still abound in man-kind. I guess that is where the differance between men and women is most profound. I do believe this country is doomed to fail at the rate it is progressing, but, I do have hope that the RIGHT change will come before Rome burns. Sorry for interrupting your fun guys.

        Please.

        They are both the same guy.

        Sam health care policy, same domestic spying policy, almost certainly same gun ban policy although the jury’s still out on that one. Although what good your guns will do you 2 years after everything falls apart I have no idea. You can’t shoot rocks out of them you know.

        Same reckless spending too. They jsut ahve different guys they want to waste your money on, but neither of them want to waste it on you.

        Denial and bargaining are two of the phases in dealing with a shocking loss.

        We’re already there. The fact that these are our two choices at the same time that: our infrastructure is toast, our petrodollar is toast, our manufacturing base is toast, and our currency is about to go completely to shit…

        I mean the body’s still twitching but the head’s no longer attached.

        Do you seriously believe either of these people can solve even one of these items?

        Why wouldn’t you vote independent? You got something to lose? Whichever of these guys gets in the result is going to be nearly identical.

      The Fed has dumped $29 trillion in loans & bailouts into the US & European economies & these guys are doing standup?

      The US economy is in a depression.

      Without the Fed dumping trillions into the economy, GDP would’ve lost 10%+. Simple, take the
      deficit & divide by the US economy’s $15 trillion per year. If U take the real deficit number
      ($4.5 trillion+) & divide by $15 trillion U get 30%.

      The government & Fed are replacing 30% of the economy with monopoly money borrowed or created
      out of nothing. This is not real demand. That’s a Depression.

      People don’t have enough money to drive demand & these imbeciles & Bernanke are trying to trick us
      into feeling wealthy, so we’ll spend more.

      They are charlatans. As a rich Skull & Bones member said when John Kerry was running against his distant relative (GW Bush), “It doesn’t matter who wins. The question is how much money I’ll make”.

      The mailbox has been full of political mailers lately, urging to vote for whichever crony. Filed in round receptacle. Today I got a DVD “Dreams from My Real Father”, A Story of Reds and Deception, directed by Joel Gilbert. The cover says Obama’s real father was Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist USA propagandist, and therefore lies his agenda. The photo of Davis looks like Obama. I know Obama’s past is sketchy at best with gaps of unknown relevant facts. It’s known the Zionist entity got rid of the Tzar and installed communism in Russia. It’s not a stretch to realize the same agenda is being put into effect in America, mostly by the elimination of our civil rights.

        Rev Ike ~

        Everyone’s situation is different with respect to retirement funds, work, etc. So my suggestions are general, to be adjusted by circumstances.

        First, keep in mind that the most recent executive order that Obama signed was the “Iran Sanctions” one. Hidden in the language of that EO, however, was the clause that he and his cohorts can sieze ANYONE’S bank accounts. It’s on paper, it’s signed, sealed and delivered. If it’s in the bank, the law now states that the government can have it.

        ~ If you can get your retirement fund NOW, do it. Food has increased 13% over the past year based on government estimates. I don’t completely trust those estimates and would put the number far higher. So, let’s say 15%. Now, if you pay your penalty for taking the money out early, you will lose a percentage of what you have invested (I don’t know the number but others may.) If you consider that the price of food will dramatically increase again over the next year because of the drought, perhaps another 20%, have you actually lost money or broken even by taking your money out now?

        ~ Not only will the prices go up, but the value of the money will go down buying less of the inflated goods.

        ~ If you have money to spare after loading up on preps, invest in precious metals. I’m on a silver budget rather than a gold budget, but my silver will hold value far better than my dollars would in a savings account.

        My advice is, cash out and buy stuff. Food, weapons, ammo, other supplies and pms. Be as self-sufficient from the system as possible.

        ~ D

            This is from an article on the Daily Sheeple the other day about it. Link to follow.

            quote
            “President Barack Obama has signed an executive order (EO) earlier this month that claims governmental authority to steal money out of customer bank accounts under the guise of assisting Iran with “certain transactions” that would facilitate their ability to economize on their petroleum resources. This agenda is hidden within the EO that redirects attention to the sanctions imposed by the US and UK.

            Obama has empowered himself, Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State and Timothy Geithner as Secretary of the US Treasury to use authority imbued to them by the President that the US government would impose any amount of sanctions on Iran for the sake of bringing the nation to its economic knees….

            In essence, if Obama, Clinton or Geithner suspects any American citizen of dealing with or for the benefit of Iran, they will have their bank accounts seized; property repossessed by the federal government and will face further suppression as defined by the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).”

      Anyone ever see the movie “Brewster’s Millions?” For those who haven’t it starred Richard Pryor as a guy who inherits $30M dollars, with the potential of inheriting $300M, IF he can spend the original $30M without gaining any physical assets.

      Long story short, one way he devises to get “rid” of the money is to “buy” people’s votes in the run for mayor in the city he is in. “Re-Elect Nobody” was the campaign, and he paid people to NOT vote, stating that they were both crooks anyway.

      If I had the the money to burn, I think this would be a great idea for this election. Pay everyone to simply stay at home on election day. Send a message to the plutocracy that we know it’s all a sham, it doesn’t matter who the President is because you have bought and paid for Congress, and as has been done in the past, any attempts at righteousness are met with a bullet.

      RE-ELECT NOBODY! Does anyone on here know if there is a clause for such an event in the constitution?

But as I’ve posted before, it’s possible for some good things to come out of it. We can rebuild this country into the kind of country God intended for us to have, but it will require all of us working together to make it happen.

I had to attend meetings with her, share the ladies room with her and others, break areas amd many of bridal, baby showers and a number of office meetings and parties. I worked on many of projects with her. She aggrivated the heck outta me. You know what I joked around with her from time to time and was nice to her. I did it because it was part of my job. If other co workers saw us on projects and such they would have thought nothing other than we got along well. I needed and like my job so I mingled and respected and tried to make things lighter in my work place. So I do not get this whole they should be gouging eyballs. Oh and yea we were both up for a higher position…neither one of got it though. Should I have acted like a complete ass and been mean to her?

      I wasn’t saying this 6 months ago, but Romney is clearly showing he’s better suited to navigate the financial hell and the social landmines that will break loose after the election.

      His monologue at the dinner was outstanding—crisply sharp sabres slashed deftly at obama (“The President’s remarks tonight are brought to you by the letter ‘O’ and the number 16 trillion.”) Love it! Touche!

      To the naysayers, cut the crap and let Romney market himself to the weak sheep who’ll otherwise unwittingly vote for the ‘cool’ Trojan Marxist or just stay home.
