Jerry Springer: President Obama's an Excellent
Politico ^ | 08/27/2010 | Patrick Gavin

Posted on 08/27/2010 3:25:36 PM PDT by OldDeckHand

Jerry Springer knows plenty about arguments and fights: He's presided over the raucous and controversial "Jerry Springer Show" since 1991. And he knows a thing or two about politics, as well, having once served as the mayor of Cincinnati.

He took his experience in both areas to Sean Hannity's program Thursday night, and the two duked it out over Barack Obama's presidency.

"I think Barack Obama has done a good job as president," Springer said. "In fact, I'd say even better than good. Do I agree with every single thing he's done? No. Is America perfect yet? Of course not. ... I must admit he's turned out to be an excellent president."

Hannity, obviously, didn't agree, knocking Obama over health care reform and spending. But Springer held his ground.

"I think Barack Obama has done a good job as president," Springer said.

That's easy for him to say. He still has his job.

Springer. Another American Jewish turncoat! He’s not only an agnostic, he’s a nothing who exploits other imbeciles to act like zoo animals!

I would be ashamed to be defended by an idiot like Springer but then with Obamas tanking poll numbers, I guess he better take praise where ever he can get it.

Of course Jerry approves. Obama hires pedophiles and degenerates. I’m sure Larry Flynt think Obama is A-OK too.

Anyone who has even the slightest passing interest in anything Jerry Springer says should seek psychiatric help before it's too late...and you end up in a rubber room stringing beads and making clay bunnies.

Well, this confirms my long-held belief that Jerry Springer is, in fact, an out of touch moron.

“I must admit he’s turned out to be an excellent president.”

Given the people he invites onto his show, Jerry Springer appears to have a very low bar when it comes to defining excellence or good behavior. The fact that neither Barack nor Michelle nor any of the kids have shown up with black eyes from domestic fighting is likely sufficient to accord them automatic placement in the Very Good category. Pass a few left-leaning laws and you get bumped up to Excellent.

Springer lacks the class of Phil Donahue, but it would appear their politics are quite similar. If he’s upset with Obama, it’s likely because he didn’t succeed in pushing through either a public option or single payer (though perhaps Jerry is too thick-headed to understand that the plan is designed to make single payer inevitable: it’s simply a matter of time).

Oh yes, he used to joke about paying with checks on his radio show. I am in a photo with the Mayor at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Cincinnati. He showed up as Grand Marshal in a blue shirt. One guy from our rugby team (The Queen City Rugby Club) took off his shirt and gave it to the Mayor to wear. Our colors are green and white.

No “allegedly” about it. It cost him his job.

Springer’s an idiot who has done much to exascerbate the problem of creating enough OTHER idiots among the electorate to get Obozo ELECTED in the first place.

Is America perfect yet? Of course not.

Typical leftist, the thought that America can be "perfected" by progressivism... and of course we haven't gotten there yet.

I must admit he's turned out to be an excellent president

Creating a never ending stream of new guests for Springer's trainwreck of a TV show on a daily basis ensuring Springer's continued employment.

I couldn't remember if that was the reason he resigned, or it it came out later that he paid for a prostitute. Thanks for the clarification, I didn't want to get sued.

You know Zero’s poll numbers are in the toilet when a buffoon like Jerry Springer is given acknowledgment in the press on his opinion of Zero’s job performance.

Puke!

Is it November yet???

Remember in November: Defeat the ‘RATS, then the RINO’s.(In order to achieve the latter, we much accomplish the former FIRST.)

I'm from Cincinnati, that was not "allegedly", that was absolutely true.

Jerry Springer is a prime example of a HUGE Cinicnnati embarrassment, but he hails from the liberal side, so he is more often portrayed as a "hero"...

Some "hero".

I guess for that side, he is a "hero"! He is one of the most sleazy, disgusting, out of the mainstream pieces of $#!+ you'll ever come across. And to he dims, those are the kind of people who ARE "HEROES"....

Being a lifetime resident of Cincinnati, except for the time I spent away from here in the US Army, I view Jerry Springer as a constant source of the worst kind of disgusting scum embarrassment.

And I always will....

The city of Cincinnati 300g is a charity case for Hamilton Co 900g and the metro 2100g. It elects its own mayor, within acceptable limits.

Jerry Springer is a far leftie. His politics stink, but unlike others, he spoke very respectful about Sarah Palin and I will always remember that.

In fact, I saved the article.

I often wonder why Hannity gives face time or a microphone to about three quarters of the jackasses that he does.

Bob “Bullethead” Beckel is a prime example. They guy is a flat liner from the shoulders up and offers nothing as far as substance on any issue is concerned, yet he is on the show constantly.

One huge reason why I rarely tune in, of late.

I wouldn’t mind seeing Hannity and BOR go away.

Hannity needs to polish his style. He is too much like a robot. His attack line is too simple and he does not adapt well to responses by those he is interviewing. He also needs to do a better job of asking leading questions and allowing his libRat guests to fall over on their talking points and logic.

I am constantly reminded of Obama by the guy on the "Scott Trade" commercials. He is constantly goofing off instead of working, and then making excuses.

The one that really reminds me of him is the one where the guy is riding in the back of the limo talking on the phone. "Sure, I know times are tough...Driver, don't forget to pick up my dry cleaning. You're a Huckleberry!"

Looking closely, I see Obama in EVERY ONE of those commercials! LOL!

Yeah he talks tough for a guy who is still employed and has the cash to hire more call girls or whatever the heck he does with his money. I even asked my Aunt, who was all giddy happy about Obama being elected, I asked her “What the hell has Obama done, anything?” and even she said that he has been a colossal failure.

BOR is no conservative and what he sees in Lady Gaga is beyond me. He is completely self serving, and Hannity is a cocky little rooster trading big on the word FREEDOM.
