A headline posted on Breitbart.com, referring to the Ultra-Liberal CBS Late Show Host’s rant in defense of his messiah, Barack Hussein Obama, reads:
LETTERMAN CAMPAIGNS FOR OBAMA ON ‘LATE SHOW': ‘WHAT MORE DO WE WANT THIS MAN TO DO FOR US, HONEST TO GOD?’
Letterman’s rant occured when NBC News anchor Brian Williams appeared on Tuesday night.
Mediaite.com summarizes the visit:
He was first asked about CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley, who Williams described as being suspiciously “sunny” in his disposition. “Life’s too short, if you feel like something a dog left on the sidewalk, say it,” said Williams.
Williams had great praise for the CBS and ABC News teams. Letterman, in turn, complimented Williams on his Rock Center special on the assassination of the Osama bin Laden.
Letterman drew applause from the audience when he said that he felt Obama had demonstrated “great courage and great intelligence” when he “gunned down” bin Laden and asked “what more do you want to lead your country?”
Williams said that most uniformed military personnel would tell him under the Bush administration that bin Laden himself was not a priority. “What you now find out, interviewing everyone in that picture, that of course it was a priority but it was a renewed priority when President Obama came into office,” said Williams. “He inherited a different set of circumstances – combat was winding down, arguably, at least the first if not the second.”
Letterman said that circumstances in Obama’s first term were worse than those for Bush, so “why didn’t he go after him?”
Williams outlines just how low the chances were that Obama could have been able to corner bin Laden where he was in Pakistan.
Letterman questioned why Obama should not be able to use the killing of bin Laden as a campaign tool when he believed Bush’s team would have done the same thing in that position. “Remember the Iraq war, “mission accomplished,” well holy ****, the mission was not accomplished,” said Letterman. “They put a banner up on the SS Lincoln, George flies up on the thing. He was very cute.”
“What more do we want this man to do for us, honest to god,” asked Letterman to applause.
“And there you have it,” responded Williams.
The segment concluded with a discussion on gay marriage and Letterman attempting to get to the bottom of his confusion as to why some would oppose same-sex marriage rights.
Evidently, ol’ Dave’s righteous indignation and concern only applies to Liberals, like his “messiah”. Remember this little gem of graciousness?
From foxnews.com, posted on June 11, 2009:
David Letterman is in the hot seat for several crude jokes he made on CBS’ “The Late Show” about Sarah Palin and her teenage daughter.
Letterman, in his monologue Monday night, noted that the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate attended a Yankees game during a trip to New York City, where she was honored by a special needs group. Letterman referred to Palin, Alaska’s governor, as having the style of a “slutty flight attendant.”
The “Late Show” host also took a shot Palin’s daughter, while poking fun at the Yankees’ third baseman.
“One awkward moment for Sarah Palin at the Yankee game,” Letterman said, “during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez.”
The backlash was almost immediate, with Palin’s supporters denouncing the CBS host for making jokes that many said were sexist and for what they called an unfair attack on the governor and her family.
“I think that calling the former vice presidential candidate a slut or saying that her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez, I think everyone can agree that’s over the line,” Washington Examiner correspondent Byron York told FOX News’ Greta Von Susteren.
But an even more disturbing fact, which Letterman may not have known, was that the daughter who accompanied Palin on her trip to New York was 14-year-old Willow — not 18-year-old Bristol, the unwed mother of Palin’s first grandchild.
Now, many critics — including the Palins themselves – are slamming Letterman for jokes that they say make light of sexual abuse of an underage girl.
In a statement to FOXNews.com, Palin accused Letterman of making “sexually perverted” and “inappropriate” comments that she doubted he would “ever dare make” about anyone else’s daughter.
“Acceptance of inappropriate sexual comments about an underage girl, who could be anyone’s daughter, contributes to the atrociously high rate of sexual exploitation of minors by older men who use and abuse others,” she said.
Palin’s husband, Todd, echoed her sentiments, telling FOXNews.com, “Any ‘jokes’ about raping my 14-year-old are despicable. Alaskans know it, and I believe the rest of the world knows it, too.”
A representative for “The Late Show” declined to offer comment for this story.
Letterman, after experiencing a huge backlash from what seemed like the entire nation, was forced to apoplogize.
Johnny Carson, he ain’t.
In honor of this long-in-the-tooth and short on humor Liberal talk show host, I came up with my own Top Ten List of answers to ol’ Dave’s question:
The Top Ten Things That Americans Want President Obama to Do:
10. He and the Missus take the same plane to their lavish vacations.
9. Quit Apologizing for America.
8. Admit that Obamacare is nothing but a way to control our lives and line a bunch of local hack politicians’ pockets.
7. Concentrate on improving our economy, instead of his golf game.
6. Fire Attorney General Eric Holder.
5. Write a National Budget based in reality.
4. Publically admit that Christians comprise 78% of America’s population.
3. Quit treating those that fervently wish to behead all of us infidels as friends of this nation and quit degrading our real friend, Israel.
2. Stop using our Armed Forces as guinea pigs for your social experiments.
And the number one thing that Americans would have President Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) do…
