SNL Parodies Obama’s “Wimpy Economics”

Saturday Night Live’s most recent parody of President Obama (he’s finally fair-game, apparently) calls attention to his “Wimpy Economics”–pay now, and we promise you’ll receive later. Right.


“I am noticing that each of your plans to save money involves spending even more money.”
Health care “reform” is but the latest example–cuts and taxes will kick in immediately while benefits will start in 2013, for instance. And the promised savings are dubious anyway. For instance, the plan actually shifts Medicare costs onto the states, forcing them to deal with finding additional revenue (tax increases?) to handle the additional burden mandated by the federal health care “reform” plan.

These rips on Obama make it more tolerable when they give Palin a hard time too:

And what a great VP choice for her!

Glad even the SNL folks are seeing the emperor’s lack of garments. Today’s special word is “credibility,” as in someone is increasingly being seen as not having any.
By the way, I actually liked the Palin 2012 ad. It just shows what they’re really afraid if. Do you think Glenn Beck would settle for VP though? We’d better ask future Sec. of State Ann Coulter about that. 😉

I was wondering the same thing, BobC.

Oh come on, admit it was funny. And I like Sec of State Coulter. Don’t forget Supreme Court Justice Rush Limbaugh though.
And the deportation of Keith Olbermann to Sweden. Says he’s not from there.

I loved how it began as an Obama sketch, but the laugh eventually was on Jintao.
I was hoping for a Tina Fey appearance, given that she impersonates one of the two political figures who put out a book last week. But damn, Al Gore needs an Emmy nomination for his deadpan reaction shots in the “What Up with That” sketch.

… Sweden says they’ll take Olbermann only if we send him in a strait jacket.
