Jay Leno continued pressuring Barack Obama Thursday night.
During his opening monologue on NBC’s Tonight Show, the host said, “This is very dangerous to the White House if journalists should suddenly start asking real questions” (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
“This week, CBS News became the first news organization besides Fox to ask President Obama ‘Who changed the Benghazi talking points?’” Leno teased.
“See, this is very dangerous to the White House if journalists should suddenly start asking real questions.”
Indeed it is, Jay. Indeed it is.
Just imagine how dangerous it would have been to Obama if so-called “journalists” would have asked him real questions in 2007 when he first threw his hat into the ring.

“I’ve talked to a lot of people who worked for Obama at the grassroots level,” says Damon. “One of them said to me, ‘Never again. I will never be fooled again by a politician.’”
