President Obama made the joke at tonight’s Kennedy Center Honors gala.

At least Obama is very slowly finally following through on that “transparency” promise.

Obama obviously wasn’t including movie presidents:

    Figures that the only time that he is SUPPOSED to say “he knows nothing about this”, he blows it.

      Could we just summon the UFO’s and have them take Obama, Reid, Pelosi and Biden away from us?

  • Maximum Booger

    Obama singing from The Sound of Music… “do ra fa so la ME ME ME ME ME! ME!!! ME!!!1!!!!!”

    • TexasMom2012

      Hahahaha, like a broken record, Obama’s stuck on ME!!!

      That is exactly Obama, pathological narcissist to the core.

  • Ranadicus

    Gettysburg Address, can’t be bothered… Anniversary of Pearl Harbor, nowhere to be found… But Shirley MaClaine he’s all over

    • Matt

      Bad mental image.

      • Frustrated Teacher

        Ewwww….nasty!

    • Wayne Swanson

      So, Karl Marx or Vladimir Lenin as a past life, or is it Josef Stalin?

  • Richard J Sunkle

    Actually that would be Bill Clinton who signed an executive order allowing the burning of toxic chemicals at the base without federal oversight.

  • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Sorry, I just don’t find you humorous anymore Mr. President and neither do 1,360,300 of Hawaiis other residents after you ignored the anniversary of Pearl Harbor.

    • Frustrated Teacher

      Barack Obama…alienating Americans thousands at a time!

    • Wayne Swanson

      … and he claims to be from there?

      • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Adding insult to injury. Not pono.

  • Maxx

    I’m just shocked he didn’t call it “Area 57.”

  • AmericanMom

    Obama: I, me, my…..

  • Republicanvet

    Somebody should have told Preezy ShamWow Pearl Harbor was classified. He would have been blabbing all over about it.

  • chewydog

    Here’s a rather long list of other Obama “firsts”.

    • Catchance

      Good list… oughta get a hashtag game out of it.

  • joeschmo8675309

    His staff just told him Area 51 existed this morning as he prepared for reading from the teleprompter. They didn’t want him to stop mid-sentence and blurt, “OMG, Area 51 exists?”

  • Matt

    I say let the man make a joke. Should be easy for a joke of a man.

  • louisiana_mom

    Oh look, SQUIRREL! LOL! He is so desperate to distract America!!!

    • AmericanMom

      Calling him an attention whore wouldn’t begin to cover it.

      • louisiana_mom

        LOL! No it wouldn’t… It’s ALL about him…

        • AmericanMom

          It would be hilarious to have a tape recording of him at a state dinner boring the guests to death with his egotistic banter.

          • louisiana_mom

            LOL! Yes, it would… especially now with him falling in the polls and everyone is starting to see him as the Naked Emperor.

          • AmericanMom

            The thought of seeing him naked is gag inducing.

  • ObamaFail

    That’s a good point that one tweet makes. Obama will talk about Area 51, but can’t be bothered to talk about Pearl Harbor.

  • therealguyfaux ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Area 51, a joke to begin with, as the ultra-secrecy was all a blind to make it look as if more was going on there than actually was, i.e., the testing of stealth and other supersonic aircraft. They were hiding it in plain sight, and all the woo-woo was just to dazzle the gullible. All the UFO buffs were like the kid who wanted to dig through the roomful of horse$#!t, because “That means there’s a pony inside!” instead of the truth, “No, child, that’s just where we store the fertilizer.”

    Now, its inaccessibility, and the heavy security, DID allow some black-op type stuff to be carried on there when they needed a place to do it, of that I’m sure. But most of the time, as Freud might say– an airfield is just an airfield.

    • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

      The minute Area 51 became a curiosity, everything important would have been moved.. to places unknown, unmentioned.. they never acknowledged it as you said, it kept the attention of the geeks focused on an empty piece of land..

      The good stuff’s been done else where for a couple of decades now..

      When everyone’s convinced they know where the goodies are, you don’t let them in on the joke. The first thing they teach you about observing is how to keep something hidden, how else would you know what cues to watch for.. and the best way to hide something, is too leave a decoy out in plain sight, if they think they found what they’re after.. they stop looking further on..

      a trick I used to great effect during training exercises..

    • Dan Thorpe

      I believe in UFO’s and the the idea that there is other intelligent life somewhere in this universe. That being said I am not going to say I don’t deny that the U.S. didn’t play up the secrecy of Area 51, I mean that is where they developed the U2, SR71 and the stealth program. Its in a remote area within the old testing grounds, perfect for privacy and very difficult to actually get to. I do think that the government has covered up what they know because for all the videos that can be proven as fakes, there are plenty that can’t be proven as fakes.

    • Ken Alan Draper

      It all started with Clarence Kelly Johnson, the head of Loockheed’s skunk works, he & test pilot scouted out the area for a secret test facility to test what would later be known as the U-2, using a false mining company they had basic facilities built on the desert. after the U-2 the A-12 a single seat aircraft that the later sr-71 mach 3 spyplane was based on was tested there, then foreign aircraft acquired through less the kosher means were flight tested, they were moved to a separate base so that the Have Blue technology demonstrators could be tested, later the F-117A stealth attack aircraft based on have blue were also tested there before moving to Tonopah where they spent their lives.

  • Scott Anderson

    Shorter Obama: “Shirley McClane and Area 51 are really all about me.”

  • Jack Deth

    Memo to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue:

    Get in line, moron.

    Carter mentioned “Dreamland” and “Groom Lake” (All cover names for “Area 51”) obliquely when he let the world know the US had “stealth technology” for aircraft long before Desert Storm.

    Bet no one told you about what goes on under “Area 51” in “Area 52”. Which is devoted to Reverse Engineering “found” Romulan Cloaking Technology.

  • cscape

    At least he didn’t call it “Area 57”

    • Ken Alan Draper

      Al though he has confiscated the name “dreamland” for the room in which his cabinet meets…..every 4 years or so.

  • frozeninbemidji

    He heard he could pick up a few votes with the illegal aliens there.

    • LynnnDeee

      That’s an insult to space aliens.

      • frozeninbemidji

        Good point.

        I figured that there was a joke in there somewhere but someone more clever than I will have to come up with it.

  • Michelle ✓classified

    Oh go home Barry, you’re drunk.

  • AmericanMom

    While Obama self-glorifies himself, once again, this is happening in modern America:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/07/us/politics/slowly-they-modernize-a-federal-agency-that-still-uses-floppy-disks.html?smid=tw-share&_r=5&

    The Federal Register, the daily journal of the US government, still uses floppy disks.

    • WhoMeToo

      O.O ==> ???omg??? <== O.O

      • AmericanMom

        Don’t tell me you collect floppy disks?

        • WhoMeToo

          O.o ==> The fact that our “government” is still using them… I have no words….

          • AmericanMom

            That’s what I felt too when I read that the government was still using them. How long has it been since they’ve been outdated? A very very long time, but not when it comes to people in charge of us operating with dinosaur technology.

  • Axelgreaser

    HE HONORS A LOONY ACTRESS WHO LIVES IN A FANTASY WORLD OF THE OCCULT & TOTAL BS, pisses on Veterans and lies like a fkng rug to the entire nation regarding O’CrapCare. Oh yes he does.

  • Macranthunter

    I’m sorry, this man is neither bright nor funny. He’s a great speaker, organizer and has some real talent for debate. But Obama is not the sharpest knife in the drawer and I think he’s actually starting to realize this.

    • Jay Stevens

      I am not so charitable.

      “this man is neither bright nor funny.” True.

      “He’s a great speaker,” False. Without his teleprompter, he sounds like a blithering idiot.

      “organizer” False. The communities he “organized” are worse off now than before he started.

      “and has some real talent for debate.” I would say that is false also. I do not recall ever seeing him in an unscripted debate in a neutral forum. I have seen no sign of his being able to think on his feet.

  • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

    At least we know where he sends Clueless Joe Biden…

  • Obama my Nigga

    Princess Obama only likes Area 51 because he thinks he can get more illegal alien votes. I also think he just insulted Shirley MacLaine. I don’t agree with her, but I wouldn’t publicly ridicule her for it. Of course Christ followers get that all the time, especially from princess Obama.

  • Always Vigilant

    Obama is hurting the economy. Here, for example, we clearly see that debt is increasing far faster on Hussein Obama’s watch than economic growth: http://www.weeklystandard.com/sites/all/files/images/image001-1_0.png

    • blowingoffgodot

      Unfortunately for you, government debt is not all that directly correlated with economic health unless it’s causing inflation.

  • Dat’s Racis’ (.com)

    And just like that, Area 51 became more transparent than the “most transparent Administration evaaaaaa”

  • http://xirtamatrix.com yourmamatoo

    Was that his clone who plagiarized a Mandela speech he gave in 05? That he himself used, and ran on in 08 -2012?
    I was shocked when I saw it :
    On NBC Evening News with Brian Williams tonight.

  • bill_a_bob

    So he has “culpable deniability” on this and Obamacare . . .
