Presidents are fair targets for comedy

August 30, 2013 

I don't know what the big deal was about the President Obama rodeo clown. First off, David Letterman, Jay Leno and many other comedians have been making fun of our presidents for years. No one ever complained about them joking about our presidents.

I will admit, I voted for Obama his first term and in my opinion, he was making a joke of our country then and still is. In my opinion, because a bunch of clowns were running in the last election, I wrote in Mickey Mouse and Goofy for president and vice president. I mean, really, they could have done a far better job than Obama did his first four years.

Where has your sense of humor gone? If we can't laugh at ourselves, then our country is in really big trouble.
