Obama’s Sense of Humor – a national treasure
by Larry Murray
It’s time to acknowledge that the only thing that has probably kept President Obama moving forward against the nonstop headwinds issuing from the Republican no-shows, goof-offs and blowhards has been his ability to have a little fun now and then with the media. The President’s unfailing sense of humor has been a hallmark of his time in office, which has been no school picnic.
As we prepare for the Academy Awards show tonight, it occurred to me that the current President might not have a future as a Fox Commentator (he doesn’t have blond hair) or featured speaker at a Corporate Dinner (lucrative work if you can stomach it) but rather, as a Will Rogers style commentator, a humorist with a sharp wit that would be as at home on Saturday Night Live as on the The Comedy Channel.
As evidence, we present these delightful videos for your consideration. We thank the White House for access to these wonderful vignettes.
