Clinton and Obama Golfing

To say Morgan Freeman is not a fan of the Tea Party movement would be putting it mildly. In an interview on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight, Freeman labels Tea Partiers radicals whose sole aim is to oust President Obama from office.

"But it's not a racist thing?" asked Morgan.

"It is a racist thing," replied Freeman.

"Their publicly stated policy is to do whatever it takes to see that Obama serves only one term. What underlies that? Screw the country," Freeman lamented.

"We're going to do whatever we can to get this black man out of here."

"We're supposed to be better than that. It shows the weak, dark underside of America," said the Oscar-winner of those "controlling the Republican Party."

There are plenty of racists out there, but the whole Tea Party? We'd be more concerned that these people think hurricanes result from God judging gays.

What do you think? Is the Tea Party racist?

Why was former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson even at the Republican presidential debate last night? Will he earn more than one percent of the vote? Unclear.

Did he deliver the best line of the night? Unquestionably!

Zinging President Barack Obama for his economic stimulus efforts, the libertarian quipped that "my next-door neighbor's two dogs have created more shovel-ready jobs than this current administration." That's pretty good. Watch:

The joke killed with the audience. But did he rip it off?

Earlier this week, none other than Rush Limbaugh delivered a similar joke on air, discussing his new dog: "The new puppy, honest to God ... more shovel-ready work for me this week than Obama has created in two and a half years."

So what does Rush think of the similarity? "I guess I've become show prep for the GOP debates now, too," Limbaugh joked to the Huffington Post.

Like other famous Democrats, Jon Stewart is not pleased with Barack Obama.

In the wake of Matt Damon expressing disappointment with the Commander-in-Chief, the Daily Show host has come out in the latest issue of Rolling Stone and said, above all else, he's simply confused by the President.

"I'm not sure what he truly thinks is the right path," Stewart tells the magazine. "Other than that he believes the wealthy should pay a little bit more of their fair share."

Adds the comedian:

"He ran on this idea that the system and the methodology are corrupt," he says. "It felt like the country was upset enough that he had the momentum needed to re-evaluate how business is done. Instead, when he got elected, he acted as though the system is so entrenched that it has to be managed... I'm surprised at how much he deferred to the legislative process."

You have to give President Obama credit for delivering his “American Jobs Act” speech at 7 p.m. EST, getting it over with early enough so that he wouldn't interfere with the Saints vs. Packers game and/or a crucial episode of Big Brother.

On the flip side, 8 p.m. on is called prime time for a reason.

If you missed it (purposely or not) The Prez blended his trademark oration with economic proposals that essentially boiled down to him telling the Republican-led Congress, “You should pass this jobs plan right away.”

Obama tried to position himself with the public and as a voice of reason, stating:

“The question is whether, in the face of an ongoing national crisis, we can all stop the political circus and actually do something to help the economy.”

He insisted this was “not class warfare,” while saying that “we need a tax code where everyone gets a fair shake” and “everyone pays their fair share.”

The immediate reaction to the President’s speech was mixed.

Leave it Rush Limbaugh to take Kraft Foods' delicious new Triple Oreo product and turn it into a strangely-worded, quasi-racial attack on President Obama.

The radio host is no stranger to making controversial comments, but this diatribe from Wednesday (August 17) was a doozy even by his lofty standards.

"Kraft Foods is going to launch a new Oreo ... It's a Triple Double Oreo. Well, what it's going to be here, it's actually a biracial cookie," he said, adding:

"You've got three chocolate wafers, and then you've got the white vanilla cream, the cream, and then there's a chocolate cream. The Triple Double Oreo."

"You wait, it isn't going to be long before it's called the Or-Bam-eo, or something. Well, it's a biracial cookie, here ... In the midst of all this talk of obesity."

"And, I mean, every time Michelle Obama goes out there and talks about healthful eating, the food industry responds with, 'Oh, yeah? Take this.'"

"And Kraft comes up with the Or-Bam-eo, the triple double-dipper."

Well, there you have it folks. Do you think Rush is using "Oreo" as a racist term for Obama, or just rambling? And how good does that cookie sound??! Discuss.

Rush Limbaugh: Racist?

Filmmaker Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal are under fire for their upcoming film about the capture of Osama bin Laden, according to reports.

The New York Times' Maureen Dowd wrote Sunday that the Obama administration is granting the filmmakers access for the president's electoral benefit.

"The movie is scheduled to open on October 12, 2012 - perfectly timed to give a home-stretch boost to a campaign that has grown tougher," Dowd wrote.

Regardless of its purpose, Obama can't help but get a boost from the film.

Bigelow and Boal, who collaborated on Oscar-winning film The Hurt Locker, disputed the suggestion Wednesday in a joint statement issued to EW.

"Our upcoming film about the decade long pursuit of Bin Laden has been in the works for many years and integrates the collective efforts of three administrations, including those of Presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama," they say.

With his economic policy compared to a tar baby, and with fellow Democrats lashing out for the concessions he gave away to Republicans in their debt ceiling compromise, President Barack Obama turns 50 years old today.

We're guessing the man could use a vacation.

Instead, he has more work in front of him than ever before: fixing an economy, slashing the unemployment rate, running for re-election in 2012, convincing one party he isn't a Socialist and the other he isn't weaker than the chances of Ashley Hebert actually marrying J.P. Rosenbaum.

At the very least, Obama could use some birthday wishes right about now. Hang in there, Mr. President. At least you helped kill Osama Bin Laden. That guy sucked.

Barack Obama Birthday Speech

Doug Lamborn is really sorry. When he referred to President Barack Obama's economic policy as a "tar baby" this week, he meant to use the word "quagmire." Hey, we've all been there, right?

In a radio show interview over the weekend, the Colorado Congressman said:

“Even if some people say, ‘Well the Republicans should have done this or they should have done that,’ they will hold the President responsible. Now, I don’t even want to have to be associated with him. It’s like touching a tar baby and you get it, you’re stuck, and you’re a part of the problem now and you can’t get away.”

Lamborn has since sent a letter of apology to the President and his office released the following statement:

The congressman was “attempting to tell a radio audience last week that the president's policies have created an economic quagmire for the nation and are responsible for the dismal economic conditions our country faces. He regrets that he chose the phrase 'tar baby,' rather than the word 'quagmire.'
