Leno: Obama Running Out of Republicans to Blame Jay Leno: "President Obama today pardoned the White House turkey, and then the turkey forgave him for the bad economy. So it worked out nice. Thought that was nice." "As you may have heard, our economy is headed towards what they call a fiscal cliff unless President Obama and Congress can reach some sort of compromise. And President Obama is in a tough spot. Because the Democrats did so well on Election Day, he's running out of Republicans he can blame this on."
