Would You laugh at a Death Joke About Obama?

For eight years decent Americans smarted at continuing references by liberals to the assassination of President Bush and at books and movies glorifying his death. I guess this is what you can expect from people who want to kill babies who survive abortions.

Not funny: Barack Obama laughs at Wanda Sykes "joke" about wanting Rush Limbaugh dead

May 10, 2009 UK Telegraph

What was Wanda Sykes thinking? Perhaps more to the point, what was President Barack Obama thinking when he laughed and smiled as the comedienne wished Rush Limbaugh dead?

Although the Left is reporting her White House Correspondents' Dinner speech as "taking shots" at Limbaugh and mocking everyone, that's a gross misrepresentation of what turned into a hateful and disgusting diatribe.

I was at the dinner and I began by laughing at Sykes's gentle teases about the press loving Obama so much they never capture him on film smoking but often seem to get him on the beach.

It was amusing when she quipped that Obama trying so hard to be all things to all men that the next thing is he'll be seen mowing the White House lawn.

But the speech took a very ugly turn when she laid into Limbaugh.

This is what she said: "Rush Limbaugh said he hopes this administration fails, so you're saying, 'I hope America fails', you're, like, 'I dont care about people losing their homes, their jobs, our soldiers in Iraq'. He just wants the country to fail. To me, that's treason.

"He's not saying anything differently than what Osama bin Laden is saying. You know, you might want to look into this, sir, because I think Rush Limbaugh was the 20th hijacker. But he was just so strung out on OxyContin he missed his flight."

She then concluded: >"Rush Limbaugh, I hope the country fails, I hope his kidneys fail, how about that? He needs a good waterboarding, that's what he needs." Obama seemed to think this bit was pretty hilarious, grinning and chuckling and turning to share the "joke" with the person sitting on his right.

There's not much room for differing interpretations of what Sykes said. She called Limbaugh a terrorist and a traitor, suggested that he be tortured and wished him dead

What was his crime? Hoping that Obama's policies - which he views as socialist - will fail.

That's way, way beyond reasoned debate or comedy and Obama's reaction to it was astonishing.

Imagine if a comedian "joked" that Obama was a terrorist who was guilty of treason and should be tortured and allowed to die. There would justifiably be an outcry.

But when the "joke" comes from a liberal, Obama-supporting comedienne and the target is a right-winger then the likes of Hilary Rosen and Donna Brazile are on CNN saying it's just comedy and Limbaugh is "fair game".

And Obama laughing when someone wishes Limbaugh dead? Hard to take from the man who promised a new era of civility and elevated debate in Washington.

Watch the video. What do you think?

I think this administration attracts people filled with hate...the race issue allows them to get away with ever they wish. Look at the comment that was left above this one. The person didn't even have the courage to use a name.
I wouldn't laugh a death threat/or wish towards Obama or anyone . I don't anyone who would.
although the left has no problem mocking Pres. Bush with films,propaganda,bumper stickers and so on. Look how they treated Sarah Palin,Rush Limbaugh and any one with a voice on the right. Freedom of speech is only for the left I guess.

Wanda what ever the name, is a nasty human being on and off stage with very limited talent,who would never have been invited to such an event accept for the fact she a nasty mean spirited black woman. Maybe Mrs. Obama found a kindered spirit? Obama's real soul is exposed by the people around him ( Rev. Wright comes to mind) he cruel words, anti American policy,words and behavior. Next he'll be laughing ,out of control on national TV at the hard ships of Americans losing jobs or mocking handicapped people...opps he did that already.
20 years from now. history will show Obama the first 'black' man to be President, a great man of failure.
This willing media has helped create this Obama,they will not let him fail nor will the expose any mis-steps or failures.
Feels like the old USSR or perhaps Nazi Germany.
Shame on Obama and his croonies.

I'm with you Daisy Rose. Obama and his Liberal ilk are the only ones who bring up race constantly, and I'm getting tired of listening to it. If you disagree with this Leftist "brown shirter", your a racists. If you attended a Tea Party somewhere, you're a racist. If you believe in the U.S. Constitution, you're a racist. I really believe that Obama and his cronies are using this racist crap as a crutch and a ploy to hide his total ineptness for the office that he holds. You know what? I don't see a black president. I only see an inept leftist with failed Far Left policies like the one term failure, ex-president, Jimmy Carter. If you take Obama's Blackberry away from him, he would have no way of communicating to George Soros every day when he receives his marching orders.

Obama and his crowd are so full of hate. They are vile and disgusting people. He should be ashamed of himself for laughing at such a joke. Whether you agree with the politics of someone else, you shouldn't want them dead.
