    Mitt Romney on SNL is way different.

    He is not in charge of a country who is on the verge of bankruptcy. He is not in charge of a country with 8%+ unemployment. He is not in charge of keeping our country safe.

    When and if he does become president, that will be the time that it is inappropriate. For right now, he is not irresponsible for doing so.

    "BTW - I wonder how un-funny Republicans are going to handle the rumored appearance of Mitt Romney on SNL "
    They will react the same way they did after Mitt Romney read a Top Ten List on David Letterman -- they will think it's cool, while expressing outrage (outrage!) when a Democrat is on a late night talk show.

    Republicans - the party of having it both ways.

    The Real Maverick,

    Obama has increased the deficit by eighteen thousand dollars per every American. This guy is really connected to the people.

    LDS Liberal thinks this is funny, but it's really not to cool.

    I thought it was great. It was funny, it was cool, and it connected the policy to the people most affected by it. This is typical old people grumpiness expanded into a column. And I can say that, because I'm old!

    #1 problem w/the GOP? Cannot connect with the average person.

    Obama was just being a regular guy, funny, clever, and showing off some personality.

    There's nothing wrong with that.

    Of course, I found the whole 8 year reign of Bush one hilarious comedy routine! His speeches were like watching Michael Scott trying to motivate or instruct Dunder Mifflin!

    Have you seen the leading and most respected news anchor, Brian Williams, slow jam the news? Great stuff. Republicans need to realize that the future lies with being human and personable. Sour grapes are not becoming of them. Their guy Nixon was much more detrimental to the office, right? And you have to laugh when Republicans turn to Jon Stewart for validation. Does that mean we can rely on Stewart's commentary on other issues, too? If so, the GOP and its new leader won't look too good.
