    Its so refreshing to hear a comedian poke fun at Bush and the republicans. That was so original and funny. More comedians should do it.

Hey and Frank and Yompotz, how dare you have a different opinion? You snotty faced heap of parrot droppings!

    Robin Williams can be humorous, but his rant about GWB was way overblown for a foreign venue. I certainly don’t have a problem with people criticizing anyone in the U.S. government in this country, but when you leave the country, you should leave the politics there.
    It will be interesting to see what all you “GO OBAMA” types say in a few years when he doesn’t live up to your wildest dreams. Will you turn on him like a pack of wild dogs?

    I’m glad I can decide if I care to see another movie with Robin Williams in it, because I won’t. I want to see him act but not hear his opinion. GWB got the left overs of the mistakes that Clinton produced, he was a good president and should not be getting ridiculed at all for his clean up job. And for those who would like to talk about McCain, he fought for our country and was in a POW camp, he should not be getting criticized for anything but more so recognition for standing behind this country that now people want to mock him. Not much to fight for in America, if you only get made fun of trying to protect those who speak the loudest BS.

    I’m not an American but I think Republicans don’t have a sense of humour. I think it is impossible for republicans to have a sense of humour because humour mostly works on targeting the foibles of the rich, powerful, elite, the arrogant and self righteous, and cutting them down to size. Humour works by juxtaposition of ridiculous ideas ie Sarah Pallin as president-now that is funny!! It isn’t funny to ridicule the poor, the disadvantaged and underprivileged you can’t bring them down -they are already down. That is why the republican comis Dennis Miller is no longer funny. Not fun to kick a person when they are down.!!!! Maybe thats why people who love George Bush can’t laugh at Robin Willims

I wonder if you say the same thing when a black comedian makes fun of white people in a stereotypical fashion. IT’S COMEDY!!! I have seen Chris Rock live and he spent 1/3 of his show making fun of white people and i laughed right along with everybody else.

They don’t need Robin Williams to tell them about Bush and his actions, they know it all already and the judgement on him has been set in stone.
    If anybody can restore dignity to the US name throughout the world, it is Obama, and wit like robin’s.
    You can’t teach people to have a sense of humor, you either have it or you don’t. It does require some intelligence. Its about Irony. Re the Racism; Robin was making fun of both liberal and conservative voters who have a sneaking fear, and we all have to face it, that Obama could introduce a heavy dose of extreme black youth culture into the mainstream. But get it, it’s a joke not against those people but against our own prejudices.It’s called laughing at yourself and it was obvious the audience was with him all the way.It’s his genius.

And YOU are the reason democrats think republicans are morons. “R W Ridings”-nobody was bashing McCain; however, being captured & held a POW is undoubtedly a very noble & generous gift to give your country, but certainly isn’t qualification for presidency. And Palin is truely a psycho moron who generously provides material for all comedians.

    Wow, there is no middle ground on these comments. You either love Robin Williams or you revile him! I’m in the former camp.

    As for the haters, I’m seeing by your comments that you are always American, and that many of you are also very xenophobic (that means you have an unreasonable fear of foreigners or contempt for them). Let’s get something straight: George W. Bush is reviled and ridiculed by 95% of Europeans, regardless of country. The average European is delighted that Obama won the election, and like the majority of Americans, can’t wait for President Bush’s eight disasterous and destructive years to come to an end! So when Robin Williams ridicules George Bush and Sarah Palin, he knows he’s just preaching to the choir! Our current government well deserves all the ridicule he throws down! So don’t give me your, “he has no business saying those things over there” crap. Get your head out of the sand!

Whereas all those slanderous sneers about Sarah’s so called ‘ignorance’, including that ‘Africa..’ comment have been exposed as utterly untrue, she has proven to be a paragon of virtue compared to all the corrupt(and worse)Demos who Obama spent most of his life consorting with. What a disgusting crew they are: the unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers, the so-called Christian Rev. Wright & the other prancing white one (Pleger or something), Rezko, Fannie Mae’s director who got away with $160 million before it crashed and now the Governor of Illinois all of whom prove that the only thing that has changed in Chicago since Al Capone & Co. is that the Mafia have taken over politics, education (Ayers), religion and all those public positions which should be squeaky clean but are proving to be just the opposite…! If you can tell a person’s value by the company he/she keeps, what does that say about Obama?

    Robin williams is funny, but people obviously take this stuff too seriously.

    I see there are many supporters of Obama and democrats as well as Republicans and there are many ignorant comments both ways.

    Dick’s comment about Palin being a set of boobs is indicative of the hatred and stupidity that plagues the globe.

    I see many people comment that being a POW is not enough experience to be President, with that, I must ask them how Obama has experience over McCain or Palin?

    Obama never ran a business, town, state or put in anywhere near as much time and sacrifice in the Senate as McCain. Obama never had any position that required him to take any kind of personal responsibility and accountability.

    As for Palin not having experience, she had more executive experience than the rest of the candidates put together. You don’t have to like Palin, but she’s got a solid record of success throughout her life.

    no doubt some idiot will comment otherwise…

    ABOLISH THE FREE RIDE!!
    I think I maybe have a solution IN GETTING OUR COUNTRY BACK.
    Please pass this proposal on to as many as you can and let’s see what the public thinks about it.
    Also to your local newspapers, friends and elected politicians.
    We just might get our country back on track and get control BY the people, FOR the people.
    Fact! Almost ALL highly skilled PROFESSIONALS have to be licensed by state or Federal offices.
    I give a few examples like Lawyers, Doctors, Dentists, School teachers, Police, Barbers, Beauticians, Pilots, Cab drivers and I could go on and on.
    Now here comes the professional Politician. Ever since the U. S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights was drafted, these cursed/praised class of people have had a free ride and have trampled over the United States citizens like a steam roller.
    Rarely having to answer to anyone and rarely impeached or punished.
    Most thumb their noses at our most sacred document, the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights which has been soundly trampled on.
    We can see how this has taken place by reading the article “TREASON ABOUNDS” on web site
    http://www.stopthenorthamericanunion.com/TreasonAbounds.html
    Now how can this class of people continue on unchallenged, form biased, self serving lobbies without any document of professionalism?
    Shall the American people continue on with their goose-stepping political representives marching on in their corrupt manner?
    The political machine as we know it no longer have the peoples pick but have big monies hidden forces picking the candidate,
    shoving him or her at the public and give the public a false scenario of being in a Democratic society.
    WE’RE NOT PEOPLE, IT’S CONTROLLED.
    A prime example is Bill and Hillary Clinton entering the White House nearly bankrupt and only a few short years later have a worth of
    over a hundred million dollars made by prostituting themselves to the highest bidder for book rights, speaking engagements and undisclosed donations.
    To much under the table double dealing for me. You decide. NOW!
    MY PROPOSAL.
    To have EVERY politician running for ANY government office get tested for the privledge of running for their chosen office by taking a test
    with the questions coming from the “U. S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights ” and obtaining a POLITICAL LICENSE.
    The score having to be a perfect 100 percent and with no less than two hundred and fifty questions from the documents.
    The questions coming from, in the form of a lottery machine administered by a top, trusted, security cleared Officer of a Military General class.
    This may be debated on who is to administer the test.
    TRUST is the basis.
    The license fee shall be based on fifty percent of the political offices first years annual salary. Payable for each time the prospect runs for any and each office, win or lose.
    To have legions of corrupt criminals continually being thrown at the people is absolutely unacceptable and WILL STOP.
    This is a rough proposal being put before the public for approval.
    Beware that it is not squashed by the evil forces that are bring ruin and bankruptcy on our nation.
    I would appreciate any feedback from the public and start passing it on.

Then, if you disagree with them, they say that they are entitled to their own opinion.

    First of all, if you are trying to express your opinion, then you should say “I don’t find this funny” (not “it is not funny”). As they say, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not to their own facts.

    Second, this video has been viewed over 2 million times, mostly because people who saw it thought it was funny enough to forward it on to their friends. If you are reading this, you likely received such an email. That’s an awful lot of people who thought this was funny. So statistically, I think it is entirely reasonable to say that this *is* funny, or at the very least that most people find it funny. Is there a better way to decide if something is funny?

You need to get down on your knees and pray to GOD that this man (OBAMA) will not lead you to destruction. Talking about a CHANGE, you will see a CHANGE in American and it is going to be BAD.

    Robin Williams is not only Hilarious, but his sense of humor is based on truth and historical significance..He is funny because he is making fun of what already has happened, and peoples behavior.
    those who do not think he is funny, are both stupid, and have no sense of humor..and pathetic..like Frank and others above. They usually are conservative Republicans, relgious to BORN again, and if not RICH…..then just red neck trash.

    Hilarious! Even though the last 8 years of an incredibly incompetent, criminal regime have inflicted great unnessary suffering on so many, humor has an honorable role in conveying reality to people who are not policy wonks, to give a good laugh to many of us and even serve as a reminder that Americans still have enough freedom to create and enjoy such humor notwithstanding the Bush Administation’s inflated concept of the “unitary Executive Branch, use of “signing statements” to vitiate laws with Bush did not wish to comply, e.g., “McCain Amendment prohibiting torture, “data mining” against American citizens without a warrant as required by FISA legislation, etc. In addition this humor is a pithy reminder of how fortunate we are that Obama won the election and major course corrections can soon begin.

How on earth can his material on the American election in early November be old material in the U.K in late November? Was there another Obama elected a few years ago, and I missed it? And physical comedy during a characterization makes a viewer want to puke? And it’s wrong to draw attention to cultural differences and the sometimes humorously disconcerting results of interacting? And someone who’s still one of the world’s most famous comedians (who also has some acting skills)is “washed up”, “a flop”? And a joke that goes back at least to the Vaudeville era is distasteful? Perhaps so, but someone must have laughed occasionally in the last 75 years. And “bashing GWB is so out of taste” ?? George W. Bush set himself up in the world’s biggest dunk tank, and said “Play ball!”
    And last, but not least, I once gave Williams Ayers a wet willy (look it up), and he remained calm and peaceful, and later on, got me back. And yet, people trust me, despite that association.

He’s an uncool, unhip, pathetic old white geezer who’s lost his stuff. Somebody should tell him it’s all over for him and he should get off the stage. Let’s reserve the stage for someone with talent.

    Obama has no executive experience at any level of government; city, county, state, or federal.

    He does not have executive experience as an officer in the military in charge of other men and women serving our country.

    Obama has run nothing except his political campaign.

    Obama has no accomplishments; no major legislation.

    In Audacity of Hope, Obama admits that Reverend Wright was his mentor. The title of his book stemmed from a Wright sermon. Obama attended Wright’s church for over twenty years.

Instead of taking people apart for so called enjoyment reasons why don’t these people try coming up with some ideas of their own to help this country work together instead of apart–put aside differences and be the country other countries look up to as they did in the past rather than as the butt end of an idiot’s so called joke.

  323. A Republican is a person who poops their pants and blames the smell on the liberal EPA. When a Republican hears some ‘humor’ they look around to see who is disloyal and discover it is their partner!

    Political, cultural, and religious beliefs are very sensitive subjects. It seems to me that it is acceptable for comedians to make fun of these topics, but if they don’t spread the jokes equally, people will get offended.

    I thought it was a hilarious act, but I can see how other people got upset over Robin’s hatred of G W Bush getting in the way of his comedy.

    That doesn’t make them wrong; just human.

    Firstly, I thought that the monologue sounded like he had a great deal more material, but had to edit it for time – it wasn’t as smoothly flowing as his much earlier stream-of-whacked-out-conscious material.

    Secondly, people who want “vengeance” on him for “pickling on our country” are the real “traitors” here: to one of the ideals on which this country was founded – that of free speech.

    Thirdly, I cannot believe how many people missed the point of the Obama material. It was not only not racist, it was *anti* racist. The reason it was funny was because none of those stupid stereotypes fit Obama – THAT WAS THE POINT! Good grief – I never thought anyone had to be as intellectual to listen to Robin Williams as you used to have to be to listen to Dennis Miller!

  327. Guess I just don’t like people when they make “jerks” out of someone else just to get a few (or little) laughs. Did not care for his sense of humor when being a prick and making fun of people that really care and want to serve for this great country. As for the grabbing of the crotch–nothing new–must have jock itch or something or just a “dick head”. Next time , maybe he could pick on some of his similar co-workers and that would be entertaining.

    I used to be a Robin Williams fan, back when he was funny…. now there is nothing enexpected especially when it comes to politics… borrrring….I respect a comedian a lot more when they dont take a side politically, because then there is some objectivity involved instead of just bashing. Im not sure Williams would find humor in bashing Obama? And of course we haven’t viewed what Obama can or cannot do yet, I sure there will be plenty of material for other comedians to find humor in.

He is another stammering idiot when he doesn’t have a teleprompter. And would somebody buy him some DentureCream to get stop his whistling “s”‘s. He sounds like my great grandfather without his teeth.

Going to Iraq was about finishing off Daddy Bush’s poor attempt to take out Sadam!!! Atleast when “slick willie” was in office we had a surplus budget. I could take my kids out and spend some money on them… Now I just hope that I can pay my bills every month. IF WE CAN’T SAY WHAT WE WANT AS FREE PEOPLE SHOULD…WHY AM I HERE SACRIFICING MY LIFE, MY LIBERTY, AND GOD KNOWS, VERY LITTLE HAPPINESS!?!?Stereo types are wrong but they are brought upon by observation…I love Robin and I would hope that some day he would come to the big sand box and entertain the troops!! We need comedy… I need comedy! Thank you Robin! And just to touch on one more thing in this long winded blog of a soldier, Thank you John McCain for being one hell of a great soldier, BUT thank god you didn’t win!!

    It’s beginning to be so obvious that Robin Williams has done way too many drugs and or he is becoming a washed up old man. When you are a comedian you tend to be antiestablishment and you tend to take on or make fun of things nonpolitical correct.
    He made a political statement through out his routine which leads me to believe he is washed up. Some of his routine was funny but most is just say, he just sucks or he bad material just something rehashed from on of Air America’s radio program.

    It is truely a sad day when a man who gave everything he had for 8 years gets such little respect from those he served. How soon we forget the steadfast leadership shown after 9-11 and some of the best economic years this country has ever known. I for one am glad to have had such a true American show the courage and fortitude to always do what he thought was right and not just what was popular. History will tell the true tale when the political rhetoric fades from memory,

    As a whole this clip was mildly amusing. Reminded me somewhat of SNL clips making fun of Robin Williams. However, the portion on Obama I found insulting, degrading, and quite frankly racist. It is one thing to use hot topic issues in comedy as a way to force people to think about said issues, but this was not even funny. It was old, tired, and ineffective. The rest of the clip had me laughing. That beginning portion was just painful.
