Leno: 'Good News For the Economy - President Obama Is Out of Town'

Jay Leno continued his recent trend of making jokes at the current White House resident's expense Monday.

During his opening monology of NBC's Tonight Show, the host said, "Good news for the economy - President Obama is out of town" (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

Leno of course was commenting on the President's trip to Asia.

A bit later in the monologue, Leno said, "Well, the U.S. Postal Service reported that it had an annual loss of almost $16 billion. $16 billion. They're losing money faster than Obama can spend it. That's unbelievable."

Yes it is.

It's going to be very interesting to see if now that Obama doesn't have another election to worry about comedians other than Leno will feel more comfortable making jokes about him.

Stay tuned.
