Was Jay Leno kicked off the Tonight Show for jokes about Obama?

We all know that all of the television networks are in the tank for Barack Obama. Jay Leno had the guts to make jokes about the current president just as everyone has done up until Obama. Suddenly it became taboo to make jokes about the president. Was Jay canned because of his politics?

    Leno started telling Obama jokes because he couldn't be fired at that point. Leno was replaced because he was popular with the age 50 to 65 demographic, and those people already have everything they need so they are a poor market for advertisers. Everything except Depends, Beano and Fasteeth. And the Hoveround and the Hurri-cane.

    More of the oppressing agenda brought on by Liberal control of the media, more of that 'change' we were warned about. Anyone who does not toe the line set by the Democrat bosses is subject to retaliation of this type.

    Most likely the network expects sponsors who pay for the advertising to go along with this type of censorship at least until an regime change takes place and normal Free Speech is reinstated.

    Leno left because his contract was over. It was coming and everyone knew it was coming. It had nothing to do with Obama who he liked.
