Much ado about nothing. It was a mildly funny show, in no way inappropriate,
and it may have helped some young adults to sign up for healthcare, which is
good for everyone.Must everything Obama does generate outrage?
This character is very comfortable on comedy shows...much more so that in front
off congress or having to actually govern. What a joke. The office of the
President is a laughing stock to the country and world thanks to the entertainer

gained private sector jobs over 50 consecutive months in a row and been
officially out of a recession for over 3 years.@Harrison Bergeron"Obama's constituency is blissfully uniformed, lost in world of crass

Unlike the writer, it was funny as well as classic satire. The comments to the
opposite just add to the humor.
Obama loves poor people so much that he makes more of them everyday!
Actually Nixon had already been elected when he did that appearance. Roger Ailes
was in charge of Nixon's 1968 "makeover," so I guess we can blame
him. If that name sounds familiar he is also the one who create Fox News and is
still President of Fox Broadcasting.
#Bergeron "Obama's constituency is blissfully uniformed, lost in world
of crass and obscene entertainment." I assume you think I am part of
Obama's constituency. I'm not. I'm a Marxist. He's a
liberal Democrat. But I feel the need to defend Obama, as he has rendered
valuable public service in keeping the unstable American economy running. To get
back to the two political entertainers I mentioned - Obama and Colter. I
challenge you to find one thing in Obama's act which was obscene. It was
good clean fun, and yes funny (does this drive you nuts?). Colter's acidic
cracks about Christie's weight, Bush I, and the looks of various
personalities were at the very least mean, and maybe obscene. If you like
Colter you are no judge of talent, sir.
@ MarxistIn the immortal words of Col. Sherman T. Potter, Horse
"Low-information voters trend younger and are more likely to be unmarried.
They typically remain at least nominally ‘undecided’ until the
bitter end, and generally do not read or watch extensive political or news
coverage. They may care about economic issues in theory, but the tax rate
doesn’t impact their day-to-day existence....'Democrats
– Barack Obama in particular – go after these voters with gusto. The
2008 Obama campaign broke ground by advertising on Xbox video games, prompting
thousands of stoners to get off the couch and out to the polls. In 2012, when
young women visited a beauty blog, they were likely greeted with video ads of
Eva Longoria or Scarlett Johansson telling them Obama was fabulous. And lest we
forget the infamous ad where Girls star Lena Dunham invited her fellow young
women to make their “first time” special with Barack Obama." -The Hill
marxist: "To get back to the two political entertainers I mentioned - Obama
and Colter [sic]."Sadly your characterization is accurate. But
only one is supposed to be an entertainer, the other is supposed to be a
re:vern001This guy is "supposed" to be the President of the
United States for heaven sake. That title used to carry respect and dignity - no
more thanks to your community organizer / entertainer n chief. The man is an
embarrassment to the United States. When you think of the great men like John
Kennedy and Ronald Reagan who inspired so many and led the free world against
Communist aggression and then you see this little clown on every late night
comedy and entertainment show on the networks ...on a regular and repeating
basis ...you get the idea that this is a non-serious guy who was elected by an
uniformed and non-serious public and then the sharp decline taking place of this
once great country makes total sense.
George Bush's completely unintentional comedy was far worse. Or better,
depending on what you laugh at.
The bit was funny.And agreed, the comments from the rabid Obama haters, --
makes it even funnier!
"If you love American capitalism you should venerate Obama. The actions of
his administration prevented a complete collapse of the economy."Yeah, and the actions of Neville Chamberlain prevented a second world war. Oh
wait, it didn't!Actually, that's probably not the best
comparison. After all, Chamberlain's actions probably didn't make
things any worse, unlike Obama's actions which did.@Schnee"As opposed to the side that thinks tax cuts increase revenue ?(we
could cut taxes and have so much left over money we could start some wars...
how'd that work out for Bush's budgets?)."Interesting
comment. First of all, research shows that increasing taxes hurts the economy,
which will then hurt government revenue. Lowering taxes helps the economy, which
benefits government revenue. And talking about Bush's budget and the wars,
have you ever wondered how Bush could have had so much money to start 2 wars AND
still have added LESS debt than Obama did? Wow! Obama's policies must be
absolutely terrible if in the short span of 3 years and 2 months he added MORE
to the debt than Bush did in all 8 years with 2 wars!
Appearing that sketch was a smart move on Obama's part.It's had a lot of you tube hits, and that means he's getting the
message out.If it works, do it . . . and who cares what Right Wing
naysayers have to say about it?
Hutterite, not often do I agree with you, but in this instance, 100%.
