Why can’t Obama find a Commerce Secretary? Uhh … Abe Lincoln’s fault? Hooray for our favorite daytime teevee president! [YouTube]

  1. Um, is Lincoln going to be our next commerce nominee failure? I know he was a “republican,” but that guy probably hasn’t paid taxes in a while.

  2. It wasn’t really a very good joke, but I’ll give it a chuckle anyway, because it’s Barry.
    I’m a bit disappointed in the Clintonista tendency in his cabinet choices, and at the general tone of the stimulus package, because it does not say, “Kill and barbecue all the rich people,” but I don’t hate him yet. Ask me in 6 months.

  3. Joke all you want libtards. But this won’t prevent real Americans from realizing that under George W. Bush planes in New York crashed without any casualties, while under B. Husein Obama they plummet to the ground killing everyone.

    Worse President Ever!

  4. He went on to say, ‘only Lincoln would have accepted the position. Why? Because he wasn’t a spineless partisan douchenozzle, UNLIKE SOME REPUBLICANS I KNOW!’

  5. This isn’t as good as his ‘ginned up to spend a trillion dollars’ line from the other day, but it’s Friday, and his bill hasn’t passed yet, so I forgive him.

  6. This is all just a recognition by the GOP that commerce no longer exists. It’s kind of like being the Secretary for the Telegraph Regulatory Authority

  7. [re=242815]bathalax[/re]: Don’t you know Reagan is their idol/God? Lincoln not so much. If Barry had made a joke about Reagan, there would have been a run on guns, ammo & ropes.

  8. It’s horrible about that plane crash in NY, but Morning Joe is actually talking about the plane crash instead of Judd Gregg & how much Barry sucks. It appears 50 people dying in a crash is the new bright shiny object to gawk at today.

  9. [re=242844]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: Yes, it’s terrible, but being spared 3 hours of righ wing hate speech in the AM was refreshing, but not to worry, Monday, he’ll blame it on the Democrats.

  10. Oh well nevermind…here’s Chuck Todd expounding on the fact that our Barry is so “embarrasssssssing”. Red flags and all that. Why do I watch Morning Joe? WHY?

  11. [re=242849]eastcoastliberal[/re]: Doh! Chuck used to be such a swell fellow–that WH correspondent gig has gone to his head & he feels he must now rag on Barry, too. Plus he hangs out with Joe & David Gregory too much now & their douchery has rubbed off on our good Chuck.

  12. [re=242844]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: Give it a day or two. Joe will eventually get around to placing Rahmbo on the wing of the plane a la ‘Nightmare @ 20,000 Feet’ in an effort to take attention away from the Gregg clusterfuck. Of course he’ll be joking, but I can hear the Paultards and Alex Jones cranking up the conspiracy machine as I type.

  13. The Foxbots will try to spin this incident as another case of Barry “blowing it” but maybe it’s Senator Gregg who did the blowing. I’m wondering if this isn’t the first public instance of the RNC using its secret “Cocktober” files to force wayward Republicans to get with the program and stop being all bi-partisany with Barry.

  14. P.S. David Denby. Sorry, you’re right, I have no rational reason to suspect that Judd Gregg is a pedophile and so this is the worst kind of snark. But the double consonants in his name, that’s a fair target, right?

  15. [re=242844]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: [re=242848]eastcoastliberal[/re]:
    Here’s my prediction…there will be the inevitable comparisons to Sully and some d-bag (Hannity, Rush?) will point out that the pilot in this tragedy was female.

  16. [re=242818]BobLoblawLawBlog[/re]: Today marks the first time in my life I have ever laughed out loud at a joke uttered by a president.

    I laughed pretty hard during “Foolmetwicegate.” But. Then I vomited on my shoes.

  17. [re]ifthethunderdontgetya”[/re]: Just think: Bush would have been a brilliant preznit had he not been constantly undermined by all of those fucking Muslins.

  18. Let’s just do what Juddkins wanted to do all along and abolish the damned department. No one ever came to anything but grief by being Commerce secretary: Henry Wallace? FAIL Maruice Stans? INDICTED Ron Brown? KILLED IN AIRPLANE CRASH It’s the Bermuda Triangle of the Cabinet …..oh, wait, maybe in another spasm of bipartisanshipnicity Hopey could nominate Walnuts and we’d never hear from him again.

  19. Sarah Palin is a natural for the position as long as they don’t choose her to be the one to stay behind at State of the Union speeches in case all the others get captured/blown up. She could have her own giant fish tank that’s located in the building that no one visits and could work with the head of Algeria on his plan to convert Africa into a nation of one language and no need for passports to travel between its many counties that the rest of us thought were independent countries. She could even retrieve that trash bag full of only worn once designer outfits in a corner at the RNC. She could proclaim she is recycling, so she can be green.

  20. [re=242983]Come here a minute[/re]: Good choice, maybe he would shoot himself in the face.

    And let’s not forget that Herbert Hoover was Commerce Secretary before he went on to become The President Who Caused The Great Depression. Herbert Hoover – GOT HIS ASS KICKED BY SOME GUY IN A WHEELCHAIR.

  21. Barry …. you are an stinky actor ! These sorry-ass jokes resemble your pain and insecurity. Even Hil’ry and Bid’n are start to getting apart … hummmm does that mean really something ???

    Don’t know …..anyhow bring another worthless tax-cheater … Keep looking….

  22. Maybe someone from wonkette should apply for commerce sec. is there anyone out there who’s paid their taxes? or is that too much to hope for? Also I agree with Bruno about the Telegraph Regulation Agency, maybe we need to call it something new, not commerce, but un-commerce or something.
