There is no "secret" hidden agenda, Erin.

It's because Mitt Romney is such an EASY target.

That's all.

Oh I forgot to add --

Go back and review all the Bill Clinton jokes on late-night TV.

Again -- EASY target....not a cabal hidden Political agenda as you assume.

But I don't hear nearly as many racial jokes about romney as I've endured over last few months about Obama.

Kaysville, UT

The President, the Nobel Peace person, thrives on jokes about anyone but himself. He loves the media and especially Hollywood and their ability to live a fantasy dream, away from reality.

This President hasn't even developed a voice of kindness and love for our country and it's citizens that fight everyday to get through this life, even in the best country of the world.

One thing about being a Peace person and not showing that to his opponents and others that would question his allegiance to the flag and to the United States of America,it is sad that he would go to foreign countries and on their ground, indicate that he is not happy with what our country has done for others in 220 years of sacrifice and helping others.

I don't think I ever had a teacher in any grade or class speak down to me as I feel the President does to us when he discusses anything. He has not helped our country overcome bias as he promotes class type fighting between the various groups, unions versus management, rich versus poor, students and school management and teachers and parents, the country versus military.

Hope Changed ?

"Mitt Romney is claiming he’s going to create 12 million jobs in his first term. But he hasn’t said yet if he’ll create them in China or India.” –Conan O'Brien

"Mitt Romney was on the 'Today Show' and admitted he likes to read the 'Twilight' books and watch 'American Idol.' If elected, he would be the 1st Mormon and the 1st 13-year-old girl to be President." —Jimmy Kimmel

"I think Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin would be the perfect ticket. She can't answer basic questions, and he has two answers for every question." —Jay Leno

"Mitt Romney is hoping to energize Republicans by announcing Paul Ryan as his running mate. Seriously? That's like trying to spice up a bowl of oatmeal with more oatmeal." –Jimmy Fallon


Like I said - EASY target.

Could we be more petty?

Perhaps all the "small government" types out there will see that this egregious imbalance in joke victimhood be corrected by the appointment of the Secretary of Humorous Services, who would GUARANTEE joke equality between candidates!

Bronx, NY

Again this helps explain the 47% remark, of course Romney cares about them he is the clubs chairman.

Mcallen, TX

The United States of America, have two thirds of its school children qualified for free or reduced lunches.

Mitt was correct of his 47% statement.

The takers will vote for the food stamp president.

Hamilton, IL

don't watch letterman or any of the other jokers. not worth my time. It' s pathetic that people get a kick out of making fun of other people and pathetic that people watch it.

I find it interesting that I don't remember hearing any racial jokes during this election campaign. Perhaps you should examine the character of the people you associate with.

Mapleton, Utah

It is tragic to me that the so-called 'main stream media' ---- will continually allow for such one sided prejudice against anything conservative and/or Republican; While at the same time giving wide berth in covering up worthy news about the character, actions and beliefs of the liberal/left wing Dumocrats.

Such as: (1) Benghazi. (2) Voter corruption in Illinois and in Philly and in Ohio. (3) Such as McCain/Obama 08 -- for every positive article by media on McCain, there were 9 for Obama. For every negative article/report on Obama, there were 3 for McCain. Stats are not out yet on 2012, but you can bet your next paycheck that the numbers will be very close to 08. (4) Federal, State and Local failures to deal with an entire week warning regarding Sandy -- and they still failed.

As to racial jokes. That is so dishonest. I travel over six western states, mostly California and I have never heard one. Not one single racial joke. However, religious jokes?? Since Obama has none, they are 100% against Romney. And people think late night TV is funny???
