And Boom goes the dynamite :) Luv ya Chips
28 more years!
Just great: rewatched. He’s got a great sense of timing,
he does, he really is a natural.. and he’s so dang loveable when he’s telling his jokes. One thing to note, I feel , is that he pokes fun at himself as well as others. I’ve not laughed so hard in a very long time.
Hop hophop! No more waddle and crump!
Thank you, Chips, thank you! I hadn’t seen anything until this YouTube, thoroughly enjoyed watching our beloved President enjoying himself! He is so The Man!
Pres. Obama tore the roof down. Even more than last year. Is there anything he can’t do?
Weee-ll, in truth he can’t lie, or twist and turn politically like Mitt. ;)
You are right!
Am I having deja vu? I couldve sworn this thread already happened and I commented in it. lol
yep, there’s a big eerie problem. I was first, had the second comment, Africa had the 3rd comment, then it disappeared. I want a recount.
oh dang that picture of George is pretty perfect :)
I almost missed the wink after “I was born in Hawaii”. Man, awesome.
the wink was just right for the birthers
Willard continues his very odd habit of inappropriately saying “Congratulations” to people
RT @HuffPostPol: "Congratulations," Mitt said b/w bites of a burger after a man described struggle to pay for college huff.to/JRoGT6— Jason Febery (@JasonFebery) April 29, 2012
You are flipping kidding me!!!!!!!!!!
Dotster, Willard is so far “off” I really wonder if some synapse in his brain doesn’t connect. Maybe he can’t hear himself? Or, he never learned how natural people talk? Very weird.
OMG, there’s gorgeous George.
omg that wink is hilarious! I tell ya That One is FUNNNY!
sherijr, My name is Barack Obama, my mother was born in Kansas, my father in Kenya and I was born in Hawaii, wink wink. That was funny. But the birther will take it as proof that they were right.
Also the joke about 4 years ago he look like this, now he look lie this, and 4 years from now he will look like this, a picture of Morgan Freeman. POTUS did have some good lines. I have one degree from Harvard. Mitt has two, what a snob. Kimmel sorry to say, POTUS kick your butt. POTUS was better.
Yeah in Ricky Santorums face…..hahahahahaha.
What I want to know is how many people here and in the room other than the urban press and Black conservatives and maybe a few young interns actually got the joke about “Young Jeezy”?
If ya didn’t here it is:
Young Jeezy – My President ft. Nas
posted on your comment on the previous thread. I did not get the joke. Appreciate the link.
I had forgotten about that video,.
PBO is so cool! I think the reference to Young Jeezy was definitely a 2012 version of PBO’s 2008 “Brush your shoulders off” (JayZ) moment. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_C791egEsc
When he did the first ‘dog-eating’ joke, you could tell the audience couldn’t believe he had gone there!
But POTUS could talk about Romney and his dog without talking about him as a kid tasting dog meat.
I don’t think he could have done one without the other. He had to joke about himself first, then no one could complain about him bringing up Seamus (Sorry if I’m misreading your comment).
It was brilliant and very smart : The Mit Rambo Robme wants it to be an issue, but it will not work.
To night my wife and I invited 6 of my neighbors for Diner and fine wine so we could watch The WHCD
mostly to watch PBO and everybody just love PBO and FLOTUS and at the end of the show, we celebrated
with fine Chanpagne .
Sounds great, Mel:)
“Last year I smacked down the Donald.
Killed the most wanted man in the world.
This year I eat dog!!
Don’t mess with me!!!!
Don’t mess with me!
You don’t know when the smack down will come.
But you know it will come.
Now if you’ll excuse me I have a country to run and a world to inspire.
See ya later suckers!”
ABSOLUTELY 100% PBHO!
This is absolutely what he said!
yep you were right the audience was stunned that he took this headon
What some people don’t get, is if he didn’t want anyone to know about tasting dog meat, he would not have put it in his book. But what any person with any sense realize is that he was a child, he wasn’t a 36 year old man, like Mitt Romney was when he put his dog on top of his car.
It was the only way to do it. Show them he isn’t afraid of it and they can’t make it an issue (it was a stupid issue anyway). It was just great. And then he could go for Seamus-on-a-plane with impunity. Turned it right back at them. He must look forward to this night all year.
nitey nite all, time to get out of this ballgown and high heels. Let’s hope that picture of Mitt on the steps of AF! with the dog kennel strapped on top is the closest he gets to that airplane fer real.
Kimmell needs to get a shovel and go dig a deep hole, jump in and have the dirt put on top of him. He BOMBED!!
PBO’s takedown of Arianna was a reflection on folks like Howard Fineman, Sam Stein and others who write nonstories on her site.
Loved that take down. HuffPuff and the bashing of PBO deserved it.
he was brutal to everybody and if he was brutal to my side I wince and grimaced but once he went after everyone else I laughed. It is what it is, a roast. I’m sure PBO wasn’t pleased with some of the characterization of him, but at the end, there were no hard feelings for him towards Jimmy. He gave him a high-five, shook his hands and talked to him for a few minutes before leaving. I re-watched it when C-span showed it again and I laughed more the second time than the first. he was pretty funny in my opinion, but i get what you’re saying.
See what you are saying,also, I am a tad bit touchy about anyone cracking on my beloved President. Yes in retrospect he did go after the others but I did not like the continued swipes at President Obama.
I thought Kimmell did fine. He did a hell-of-better job than Jay Leno. He was not edgey but edgey is severally over rated in my opinion.
One thing I can say about Kimmel’s stuff, he was very aware.. whoever does his research, whether he or staff- he knew about the Fox “mole”.. and there was other jokes in there that were reliant on being pretty savvy & up to date on the political happenings.
Did you all read stupid Knoller’s tweet? Something along the lines that Pres Obama’s best joke was at the end, w/ the Secret Service joke. Does that guy have even a small brain cell?
That joke was soooo predictable. What an imbecile.
Look when your mind is focus on your box of doughnuts you can’t focus on anything else. So guys don’t be so hard on Mark Knoller. I’m sure Knoller think Romney is the best speaker since Dr. King.
Kimmel: The reason Boehner keeps smoking so many cigarettes is because his tears keep putting them out. #WHCD— (@utaustinliberal) April 29, 2012
POTUS is always saying that FLOTUS is funnier than he is, next year at the next WHCD it would be great to see them do a act together.
Pres. Obama: Mitt Romney & I have degrees from Harvard. I have one. He has two. What a snob! #WHCD #NerdProm— (@utaustinliberal) April 29, 2012
effing slow wifi in a effing $150 pricey pos hotel. Can’t wait to get back to my office 5 hours from now.
Kimmel: Ron Paul looks like the guy who gets unhooded at the end of every Scooby Doo episode. #WHCD #NerdProm— (@utaustinliberal) April 29, 2012
PBO loved that one!!! He was laughing his ass off!!! It was hilarious to see him laugh like that!!!
Here’s Jason Easley’s take on WHCD..
<strong<"This was definitely not as controversial as George W. Bush’s skit where he looked for WMDs. However, beneath Obama’s light humor, we got a glimpse of the steel backbone of this president. The message in tonight’s comedy for Republicans was that if they thought that they were going to be able to roll over Barack Obama and take back the White House, they’ve got another thing coming.
President Obama is here, and he is ready for the fight. Even during a night of comedy for charity, Obama showed what he is made of, and this president isn’t going to back down from the 2012 election challenge."
:oops: Sorry about screwing up the
I felt the same way watching the President. He “went there”. It was brilliant.
He always takes all their stupid charges against him away from them——by saying them first and making them seem as ridiculous as they are. Beats them to the punch and sends them packing.
Spot on, dotster3!
PBO always faces down the pack of wolves whenever and whomever they maybe
Damn straight… Why the hell should he?
Kimmel: Abraham Lincoln had a vision about the republican party 150 years from now and shot himself. LOL. #WHCD #NerdProm— (@utaustinliberal) April 29, 2012
Kimmel’s best punch line ha ha..
why is that colombian ha-hawttie Sofía Vergara with that bovine pig, fat pos christie ? Did that pig eat the plate too ? WH warned him not to.
Not to worried mate PBO and uu have our beutiful Eva langoria and eva is very po[pular among the Hispanic
community in fact all over Latin America and here in the USA, so I not worried about Sofia.
sofia is a rethuglican ? Don’t tell me so.
Well she was invited by the FAT guy, but I am not worried Most latinos are for PBO in fact we
have been longer than Sofia and we served our country.
I don’t know if she is but just because certain people invite you, doesn’t mean you have the same political ideation. Kim K isn’t a repug but she got invited but Greta so that married (in the closet) Greta can has fuel for her fantasies. But I hear tell Sofia’s boyfriend is a repuke. Go figure.
The audience got a big kick out of the the president’s swipe at Arianna Huff, there’s genuine disdain for that women, or should I say that snake.
Just think, if you’re a reporter who writes a story for Time magazine, HuffPuff can make money just by linking to the story you’ve written and doesn’t pay you one red cent for your hard work.
Or HuffPuff will quote paragraphs from your reporting, indicating it’s from Time magazine and in doing so avoiding the charge of plagiarizing, but still using your work without seeing fit to pay the writer.
She is loath in the business.
Notice President Obama’s comment about the Huff Po stealing and not paying anyone—–he called it a “great business model”.
My absolute most utterly loved line of the night – **** you Arianna!
Mine too!!!! Ole witch
Mine three. He nailed that ugly, ugly witch. Loved it.HZ
What you want to bet the Huff Puff witch will be on some Sunday morning with something to say about what POTUS said.
Just got home from a party at my son & daughter-in-law’s. We dvr cspan. listening to Jimmy Kimmel now. He isn’t too bad, but the President hit it out of the park! Can’t wait to watch it again. Now to go back and read all the posts. Thanks for live blogging everyone. Love FLOTUS’s dress, it is so beautiful.

Good night all.
Bless his heart. That’s so sweet.
I really, really, really love it!! It should be among our key campaign images for women
so you guys abandoned me on the last thread and flocked here. I was wondering where everyone was. thanks for telling me guys………
Seth Myers just made a Trump/Romney joke and a Chris Christie joke on SNL. hahahhahhahahahaha!!
is this snl a rerun ?
Haven’t laughed so hard for ages. Handsome, funny, nerves of steel, self deprecating humour. what a GUY!
you got that right!
Looking at Christie in that picture makes me think that he is thinking “Hey, I don’t get this. What am I missing?” A deer in the headlights expression.
Okay, his voice in that opening hot mic bit? Sexiest. Thing. Ever.
I liked it when he said “Michelle said ‘yeah’ , I sing that to her some time”. He’s got that late night DJ voice happening :-D Okay, time to turn in. Good night all you night owls.
C-SPAN ONE is re-airing PBO’s remarks at the WHCD again and hell yeah I’m watching it again.
“as my stepfather used to tell me, it’s a boy eat dog world out there.” OMG!!! I’m dying!!!!!!!!!!!! I almost wizzed my pants!!!!
that was a surprise
Even Michelle looked surprised at the first dog joke (“diff between pit bull and hockey mom? Pit bull is delicious”).
Next year, I want Chris Rock to host the show. He will be better than even colbear.
The White House Correspondents would be totally afraid to invite Chris Rock… as they should. However, he would be AWESOME!
Just curious, but did smirkface Cantor get some of that smirk slapped off of his face tonight?
A little – the President thanked the feckless Republicans for tearing themselves away from their busy schedules of passing no laws to come to the dinner – almost word for word, except he didn’t use the word “feckless”.
LOL! He is excellent with the zingers.
was the cantor the rat there?
He was there. There were a lot of rats there.
Yes, I believe he was with ‘drawers-in-a-wad Chuckie Todd.’
The best time to get the smirk off his face is Nov. 6th when the President Obama is re-elected and the House is lead by Speaker Pelosi again.
OMG – I missed everything because I was busy at the Galaxy game, watching ROBBIE KEANE MISS A PENALTY KICK, and we ended up in a TIE with Dallas. :cry:
I can’t wait to catch up on all the video…. from what I am gathering, he killed even more than last year… [HELL YES!]
So where do I start???
You have to make sure you’re watching the version where the President leaves the room at the beginning, and they do the open mic skit.
watched it last night – HILARIOUS.
Tally you did miss everything.
Remember this video? We must guard the change. 28 more years!
Wow, never seen this before. Freaking awesome O_o
GOOD MORNING ALL…AM OFF TO CHURCH THIS FINE MORNING….WATCHED PBO LAST NITE…HE WAS SO FUNNY…WHY DID NEWT BOTHER TO COME AT ALL? HE’S LIKE A LINTBALL..FOREVER HANGING ONTO A SOCK IN THE DRYER! GIVE IT UP NEWT! WILL PRAY FOR MY PRESIDENT TODAY…GOD BLESS HIM…WE ALL NEED TO GIVE HIM LOVE AND ENCOURAGEMENT….BBL…!
Here is the fake Sper PAC ad on Seamus-
Make it go viral, if you can cut it without the Hill website, cool?
As he readies his war chest, Obama is scheduled to join former President Clinton on Sunday at Terry McAuliffe’s house in Northern Virginia for a fundraiser. The event is charging $1,000 per ticket and $25,000 to co-host. The afternoon money raiser will be the first that Clinton and Obama have ever held together, according to McAuliffe, a giant Democratic moneyman and the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee.
And on Monday Michelle Obama is holding a fundraiser in Tuscon, Arizona with the country musical band Calexico and charging $100 for young professionals, $500 to sponsor the event, and $10,000 to chair it.
Good morning Chips, going to catch up tonight! Have a good one TODs!
Chips, you have a host of great pictures to sooth our first place souls for years to come I can not wait to get one.
Morning everyone ;-)
who is that morose looking guy sitting at left of the flotus ? You came there to laugh, then laugh you fucker.
I read a fascinating overview of WHCD yesterday, detailing the parties held prior to the dinner which is critiqued as being very little dinner & really cheap box wine with long boring speeches, exception usually POTUS. The writer, a journalist, said it used to be a cozy affair for real correspondents but Hollywood has infiltrated and game changed the event.
That said, I squirm to see the POTUS making lame jokes to a room full of pols, Hollywood types , oh yeah, and then correspondents. No begrudging his night for a roasting and Pres. Obama, as well as former Pres. Clinton, make the most of it.
I stayed through most of the video, long enough to enjoy WOOF PAC. That was cute.
