Nothing can top the real thing but SNL did a great job spoofing the meltdown that happened at MSNBC after Obama lost his first debate:

Just a note, the skit is pretty clean except for one word. So CONTENT WARNING: LANGUAGE.

    i dont know…that was pretty awesome, it reminded me of the al gore, glenn beck, &, obviously, msnbc vids all in under 5 mins

  • John Brownbean

    The skit was not as funny as real life, but nevertheless, I’ll take it.

    Romney is surging nationwide, and in case any low information voters missed the news, now they know that Obama is indeed pathetic.

    • smmy33

      Didn’t think it was funny, just rated a smirk …. Jay Leno had a skit were Chris Matthews is taken away in a straight jacket made me LOL.

      Instead of doing Obama , they go after the people on MSNBC, because they know mockery is the death kill for politicians, so they still wouldn’t go after Obama directly, they always go around him, Joe Biden, the MSNBC crowd, Pelosi , Reid and any skit with Obama actually portrayed, there routinely make them without real mockery or funny or hard hitting.

    • Conservative_Hippie

      I can’t argue with that!

  • orthodoxyordeath

    Ah SNL. It’d be funny, if it wasn’t so sobering that so many people get their “news” from SNL, John Stewart and Colbert.

  • John Brownbean

    I never watch SNL, they didn’t spoof the actual debate?

    I laughed my butt off thinking of the debate as a gladiator fight, with Romney yelling “ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?! IS THAT NOT WHY YOU ARE HERE?!”

    • Conservative_Hippie

      “I never watch SNL, they didn’t spoof the actual debate?”

      -here’s one for you :)

  • PVG

    Very funny! Especially the not-so-Sharpton character.

  • John Brownbean

    Now I’m laughing my butt off thinking of 300…

    “This is madness!”
    “I AM ROMNEY!”
    **kicks Obama into pit**

  • Lou

    Obama was severely damaged by his poor debate performance.Romney completely destroyed his “messiah” image in front of the entire world and made him look small and weak.I doubt rigged jobs numbers are going to help him.He’s already been exposed as a fraud.


      Yeah!! Way better than a phony birth certificate!!

      • kong1967

        Are you being sarcastic? If you’re an Obama supporter and you’re making his comment about the jobs numbers a comparison to the (supposedly) nutjob claims of the birth certificate, then the comment below applies to you….

        None of the other numbers intricately tied to the unemployment rate went down at all. None. If you don’t find that suspicious then there’s something wrong with you. We only added 114,000 jobs, and that number could not reduce the unemployment rate unless there are less jobs in the market or more people stopped looking. That jobs gain is pathetic and can’t even keep up with the population increase.

        7.8% unemployment is still pathetic after 3 1/2 of supposed recovery. The market naturally will try to recover on it’s own, and the only time it can’t is if the government is putting a boot on it’s neck.

        • MLCBLOG

          Absolutely!! I love sarcasm.

          I am just saying that a birth certificate that is an obvious, proven fake can’t hold a candle to a dismal defeat in a debate. That’s all.

          To further explain, (sorry I was too obtuse in my sarcastic joke for people to get it) Barry and his cohorts are proving to be their own worst enemy. Hooray!! an answer to many of our prayers.

          Further, sarcasm is a time-honored and frequently effective form of commentary, especially in politics.

          You are so right. Those unemployment figures must have been pulled out of some of stinky’s boots they are so obviously suspect.

          • ali3nation

            Your sarcasm is understood and quite welcome here.

          • kong1967

            “Absolutely!!” I love it.

            Well, there’s nothing wrong with your sarcasm but I don’t have enough conversations with you to remember if you are conservative or a liberal drive-by. The mistake was mine. I tried finding my post so I could add in “if you are being sarcastic against Obama, please ignore this” but I couldn’t find my post. :(

            Glad to hear I took your sarcasm wrong. I will know next time which way to take it. :)

            • MLCBLOG

              My only trouble with my own sarcasm is it is kind of free-flow and I lose it sometimes, as in get things wrong.

              In this case, I was actually “thinking” (not quite the operative word here) about Satire and used another Sa…word, sarcasm, in response though to your question.

              I don’t blame you for asking. I was not clear….but then again I may not be clear next time. However, I’s working on it. It’s easy enough to dash off comments, but you want them to make sense, too?? just kidding.

                “…I’s working on it.” – MLCBLOG

                Lol, that’s funny. No worries, I’ve got your handle burned into my head now. I will know to look for sarcasm. :)

  • Paul Beyer

    Pretty effing funny…the irony is that is basically what they were saying post debate. #LIBTARDS #BARRYOMUSTGO

  • Mike Lee

    This is what passes for humour today? Sad.

    • tvlgds

      There’s nothing like the original Not Ready for Prime Time Players. They were hilarious and way ahead of their time.

      • poljunkie

        Nothing like the 70’s. Those were the best years of SNL, so much talent, and they actually made us laugh… I was just talking to someone else earlier about concerts during that same era. In the Bay Area we had Day on The Greens. All day out door shows. Sooo much fun.

        • tvlgds

          Yeah, the 70’s were a time! TV was actually clean back then–there was innuendo, for sure, but nothing like the crap on the tube today. I’m thinking they still have Day on the Green in the Bay Area. I never went but I’m pretty sure they had it while I was out there.

          • poljunkie

            speaking of innuendo but all in fun, remember WKRP – that was a great show.

            • tvlgds

              I remember it but didn’t really see it – I was working shifts back then and didn’t see much tv at all. “All in the Family” was one of the best! Then along came the PC police and ruined everything.

              • poljunkie

                If you like music at all, you should check out some of the clips on youtube. Its pretty funny. Its set up as a radio station and revolves around the DJ’s, Venus Flytrap and Johnny Fever. I agree about All in the Family.

                • tvlgds

                  I love music! (C)rap and hip hop, however, do not fall into the “music” category. I hate that stuff. I’m pretty much stuck in the 70’s and 80’s with rock and roll. If I want new rock and roll, I get it from CMT. Go figure!

                • tvlgds

                  Same here – Exactly. Even the CMT part.

    • kong1967

      I thought Maddow almost looked like the real deal. Not as vitriolic, though.

    • Alex

      I think the Sharpton portrayal was excellent. People really did use the weather as an excuse for Obama and really pathetic excuses. Matthews should have sulked more.
      I like how they concede defeat to Romney.

      In the other SNL segment though about the actual debate, they just have him as distracted instead of the full extent of how he was owned. They should’ve made fun of Obama himself like they’d do to any non-liberal who gave an awful performance.

  • poljunkie

    I had FOX on and the debate rebroadcast came on about half and hour ago. I have to say that the second time around its just as good. Romney was on his game.

  • Doors Xp

    SNL sucks. Less than 1/100 skits are funny. I stopped watching it years ago because of the steady decline in HUMOR. They are afraid to make fun of the president. And guess what. AFRAID comedy is just not funny. They are nothing more than an extension of the leftmost wing of the Democrat party. The real joke was Obama in the debate and they did not go there because they are not funny. SNL is just a bunch of weak untalented unfunny loser wannabe comedians who suck at being funny. An occasional foray into mockling MSNBC or other irrelevant small profile events just makes it more obvious. There are dozens of hilarious possible skits they could have done on the debate itself, but these talentless brain-dead whimps skip it as usual. They punish themselves by irrationally making such comedy gold off-limits.

    • Red47

      It’s funny when you are in high school and can’t get all the references they are trying to make.

    • kong1967

      That’s true, but indirectly they were jabbing Obama. They admitted that Obama sucked and there’s no excuse for it. They also admitted that Romney did a virtually flawless performance because the best gaffe Maddow could come up with wasn’t a real gaffe. From a bunch of lefties that’s probably the best we can hope for. At least they didn’t defend Obama or go after Romney.

    • ali3nation

      Quite right, SNL is not anywhere near what it was years ago. But then again what is? We have to take what we can get from the ultra left and this is a gift that will keep on giving. The upcoming VP debate should be even more fun.I can’t wait. And I think there will be a record number of viewers for this one as well, since expectations for a really entertaining event are high.

  • Jazcox

    I thought the guys playing Chris Matthews and Al Sharpton was hilarious!

    • kong1967

      Yeah, me too. Except SNL’s Al Sharpton is too clear spoken. I mean, when I listen to the real Al Sharpton it’s tough to understand a lot of what he says because he can’t speak English worth a crap.

      • Suzyqpie

        A fine example of Al Sharptons command of thee English language, “Resist we much.” Dutifully read right off the prompter.

        • kong1967

          Lol, a perfect example.

  • pairadimes

    Not funny, really, but perhaps refreshing to see something come out of the entertainment industry that doesn’t toe the line for the Obama cult of personality or his fifth column in the fourth estate.

  • 911Infidel

    That was good. But the funniest line was delivered by the little man Bill Maher who quipped that: “It looks like he (Obama) took my million and spent it all on weed.”

    • kong1967

      Laugh my freaking a$$ off!!! Did Bill Maher really say that? That’s drop dead hilarious!!

      • 911Infidel
        • ali3nation

          Thanks for that link. I missed that and am glad I had a chance to rofl. Maher is a pretty funny dude if he doesn’t let his ideology get in the way.

          • kong1967

            When is that? Never? I’ve never seen him without vitriol aimed in a polital direction.

            • ali3nation

              That is my point, I think he let his ideology slide in that clip. He hits Obable pretty hard and is pretty reasonable with Romney. This is the first and only time I have ever seen him like that.

              • kong1967

                Lol, you and I both. I have seen him interview the Manson guy…forget his name. The guy with the colored eye. He looks like a maniac but he’s very, very intelligent. He made Maher look like he didn’t know jack crap.

                • tvlgds

                  Maher makes Maher look like doesn’t know jack crap!

                • kong1967

                  LMAO!! Very good comeback.

          • 911Infidel

            Maher is a little weasel. And like most little weasels in the media/hollyweird, from time to time he stumbles on some truth.

        • kong1967

          One of the few times I can laugh at a Bill Maher comment.

    • Suzyqpie

      Bill Maher did say that. I was shocked that he was capable of launching an 0bama criticism that was so stinging. Capture that visual, the Pres chooming through $1m of weed.

      • ali3nation

        That quip may be more telling than it seems. If Maher could even bring himself to be that clever and at the same time destructive to his dear leader, he may be telegraphing an early prediction of the outcome of the upcoming election. He probably would have kept quiet if he thought Obama still had a chance.

  • PhilipJames

    Here is something to consider when you think about Saturday Night Live… their average viewership is around 4 – 5 million. And it is mostly in the 18 – 49 age group.

    If you look at most shows on the major TV networks that are considered good shows, their viewership is in the 4 – 6 million range and if it is a special show or “big ratings show” then it goes to 7 – 9 million and a blockbuster is over 10 million.

    I looked it up and found this number for a show I am sure we all watched a while back that shows just how much SNL and national tv viewership has cratered over the last few years because it is mostly crap and a lot of the shows are liberal propaganda…

    “when the real Sarah Palin appeared. SNL had 17 million viewers during its first half-hour”

    And as I remember it, on a specialty cable network, not national TV, Sarah Palin’s Alaska had around 5.5 million first episode and averaged around 3.5 million for the all the episodes.

  • Vorlath

    I laughed hard at the Romney gaffe. They had nothing so they had to slow down the tape to make Romney sound weird. It’s classic MSNBC. The Matthews character was hilarious. The best part about this is a left wing show making fun of MSNBC.

  • Red47

    This is one of the funnier political skits they have done. I must say, their Sharpton is somewhere between spot on and too nice.

    • RKflorida

      There you go! I thought the Sharpton character was a riot. When he said the water shoots straight up your …, I nearly wet myself. That guy is funny. The others were OK. What they have done in the past I wouldn’t know, but this skit was funny.

      • Red47

        My husband and I nearly fell out of our chairs laughing at that one. I kept waiting for him to say something about an island tipping over.

  • Furrystoat

    What was most striking about this skit was not what was said, but what wasn’t. So many obvious and absolutely hilarious jokes about Zero could have been made but, as others have mentioned, they won’t touch Barry.

    This made them look even more weak than usual….the debate had numerous jokes that wrote themselves….Zero staring down at the floor while President Romney was looking directly at him and speaking to him, the scowl on The First Vacationer’s face as she was leaving the stage with him ON THEIR ANNIVERSARY NIGHT….there was an hour’s worth of comedy gold that they didn’t even touch because they love him SO much.

    They also made the Maddow character FAR more coherent, rational and appealing than she actually is. The real R.M. probably throws elaborate, trendy parties that the cast and writers want to continue being invited to.

    Seeing occasional clips like this that are billed as being “so uproariously funny” when they only take the very most timid possible path remind me why 99% of non-Fox network television is an absolute waste of time.

    John Belushi must be rolling in his grave over what SNL has become.

    • kong1967

      Give them credit, they went after the MSM’s reaction to Obama’s poor performance. In a not-so-direct way it is the acceptance that Obama just flat out sucked. They could have done a skit against Romney, although he did such a good job that even Maddow’s depiction in this skit showed they had nothing to get Romney on.

      So, SNL depicted Romney in a good light and Obama in a bad light. Good enough for me.

      • Cutlass12

        I suppose you missed their unfunny opening sketch of the debate itself where they portrayed Romney as a creep and a liar and Obama as a lovable husband who was distracted thinking about anniversary gifts:

        Lame. What’s the point of an SNL that won’t mock the president? And that Romney impression is terrible. Shame Phil Hartman isn’t around to do Romney.

        • kong1967

          Yes, I missed it. I didn’t know there was a spoof done of the debate itself.

          I have a little bit of a different take on it that you, though. Yeah, it painted Romney as a liar, but it didn’t do Obama so well, either. It may have painted Obama as a lovable guy, but it also painted his presentation as very poor with no relevance or substance. It looked like Obama was dumber than a rock as he just threw up a few compliments and platitude remarks about inheriting the worst economy ever…and Obama acted like it was worse than a nuclear war inheritance. I thought that was making fun of Obama pointing the finger constantly without taking any blame. It painted Obama as uninterested in the debate, and I think that was very accurate. The funniest part to me was when Lehar (spelling?) asked Obama if the way we save the economy is to hire teachers and Obama excessively nodded his head with an excessive smile (which Obama has). That made Obama look like an empy-headed fool and an idiot…but was accurate to the debate.

          All in all, it wasn’t all that funny.

          EDIT: As far as the air-headed reaction to the altitude, I’m not sure how to take that. I don’t know if it was making fun of the excuse made for Obama (which I think is likely what they were doing) or if they were joining in on the excuse.

    • Sheik Yerbouti

      Exactly. If they were going for the real funny, they could for instance use a guy to play Mr. Maddow…or at least tone down the make up a little.
      And face it – their Sharpton is just too likeable. That comes of using someone just barely graduated from Nickelodeon, which automatically smooths out the real thing’s more maniacal, racist, anti-Semitic, hateful, murderous edges.
      SNL hasn’t been funny for about 32 years now.

    • PhillyCon

      Well, they did call Obama is a disaster. So, there’s that.

    • Nukeman60

      One has to understand that the majority of SNL’s audience, much like Jon Stewart’s audience, is liberal and anything more than mild rebukes would be hard for them to swallow. I get a kick out of the fact that anytime Stewart or SNL makes fun of anything liberal, the audience kinda laughs half-heartedly, not knowing whether it’s supposed to be funny or not.

  • 1mathteacher

    That was funny. Have y’all seen this one? The narration is in Chinese, but the animation needs no translation. :)

    • Nukeman60

      Heh, that one’s a keeper. Interesting how the narrative was in Chinese, as they seem to own us anyway. I’d like to see us dump the Chinese debt and ask them what they are going to do about it (just a fantasy of mine).

      • 1mathteacher

        That *would* be interesting…..what could they do? It seems to happen to us frequently enough.

        • Nukeman60

          I hear that’s what the opposition leader will do in Venezuela if he wins the election (probably not likely, though). I’m sure it makes for very tough trade negotiations, but if you don’t want to borrow any more from them, it’s a good way to slam the door shut.

  • kong1967

    Wow, that really looked and sounded like Rachel Maddow.

    They (the MSM) are just making fools of themselves. They make the libs look even worse.

  • Steven Valdez

    Almost like the real thing, actually the real thing was way funnier lol… but this wasn’t bad good enough for a chuckle here and there for me..

  • Sheik Yerbouti

    That sucked.
    A “spoof” is supposed to take an actual event and make it more ridiculous or absurd.
    That is obviously impossible in this case. They should have just left it alone – maybe even played the actual video from that night’s MSLSD instead.
    Some things just cannot be improved upon.

  • Carl Hansen
  • E. Lee Zimmerman

    SNL: still not funny, even when poking fun at one of their own.

  • chatterbox365

    I got a chuckle out of this…it wasn’t that bad. Nothing beats the real thing, but I think they got Mathews down pretty good.

  • GiantM

    This is how it should be every Saturday night on SNL. They have so much material to work with when it comes to the dysfunctional Libs!!

  • Jerseygalnny

    I enjoyed that, and shared it with my patriots’ group on FR Blaming everything from altitude to dust bunnies is just typical of the left. On the reality side, I think that spoof may have been pretty darn close to what really happened behind the scenes! A behind the scenes spoof I’d love to see is one where O has to explain to Moochelle what the heck happened!

  • Libertyship46

    If you notice, though, they didn’t make fun of Obama in person, such as a character playing Obama. They just had people talking about Obama. There IS a difference. When SNL was making fun of Sarah Palin in 2008, they had a person dressed up like Sarah Palin saying stupid things. As for now, they don’t have a guy dressed up like Obama saying stupid things and acting badly. Seems like the liberals, for now, are OK with just trash talking Obama, but NOT actually showing somebody looking, dressing, and sounding stupid like him. Well, I’ll take what I can get. If ultra-liberals are making fun of you, you know you’re in trouble.

  • Jasper Silvis

    I liked the end: “Is winning the election really that important?”

    This is what liberals are coming to grips with. And with Obama running away (er, retiring) to Hawaii, he will be far enough away from the mainland that liberals will be able to forget they ever liked this guy.

    • Nukeman60

      Yep, once he’s gone we need to pass a law prohibiting him from entering the other 56 states for the rest of his life. Exile him to Hawaii, much like Napoleon was to Elba. I certainly don’t want to see another decade of him giving speeches and making his fortune on the ruination of the American people.

      • dmacleo

        name his new estate amabo and he can say
        obama was I ere I saw amabo

        • Nukeman60

          Quite clever!

          • dmacleo

            every now and then I am, wish it were more often though :)

      • ali3nation

        I could tolerate him making post presidential speeches if the venue is a court room or Leavenworth or the gallows.

  • Martha Chandler

    They did a good job with Madcow and Chris (have another drink) Matthews. My husband and I watched SNL a long time ago when we first got married. We’ve been married 38 years, so it was a long time ago. We don’t watch it now, we grew up.

  • daisy_mae

    Pretty dang funny RS and thanks for posting this. I think my fave is the comedian playing Al Sharpton. Funny!

  • Mike Kerns

    That. Was. AMAZING.

    I think tingles was probably the best.

  • PhillyCon

    Eh, it was OK. But you can clearly see that poking fun at liberals (a.k.a their own) is extremely hard for them.

    Remember, the days with Dennis Miller? Heck, Eddie Murphy is even funnier and he’s a total lib.

  • las1

    Even in their self mockery, they openly expose their real tactics… take something Romney mispronounced and play it and analyze it and insinuate incompetence… then run with it times 10. They know they are doing it and still can’t help themselves.

    As for mocking Obama… they still could not bring themselves to do it. It’s Rule Number One since day one… don’t mock The One.

  • Nukeman60
  • Mr_A56

    The guy playing Chris Matthews was too sober and did not spit enough when he talked, otherwise, nice job.

  • Michael Mattei

    You’re right dude, the real thing was a much much more delicious shit sammich I saw REgressives eating that night.

  • SKL53

    Chris Mathews is a nut job! He just can’t take the pressure of seeing his empty suit run over by intellect!

  • Stan

    That was a good one SNL. I usually don’t care for your skits but that was a good one…

  • SaraPFan

    So many news outlets are mocking Matthews. Matthews goes on-air with his rants and tingles like he has a personal romance with Obama. It is really strange behavior.


    You got it right. They worship him and love to be loyal. I know. I used to be one of them whacko leftists who wanted to save the world.

  • Feliciene

    Watched a few of the SNL skits & there were funny. Once upon a time, Matthews did make sense but changed & now he has basically gone the deep end. How can a person change so much as usually one gets wiser as he or she ages.

  • jleinf

    Nice to see SNL get their feet wet.

  • mediaaccess1

    It’s not far-fetch from what’s been goin’ on.

  • wodiej


  • friskyness

    That was funny, but they could have used a lot of Obama’s tapes, especially when he was staring at Jim Lehrer for help. They used a Romney tape, but they had a lot more of Obama. They didn’t mock Obama, they still mocked Romney. I can’t watch SNL anymore.

  • ali3nation

    Oh so true. I know a number of people like that, unlikely ones at that, an ER doctor, a well off Jewish small business owner and three Orthodox Jewish young women. Of the latter they cite the fact that Romney wants to take away Big Bird and their small children will be deprived. Don’t get weird on me now, I too am Jewish. But these people really worry me as they are Obots for the worst of reasons. They are blind to the damage Obama is doing to all of us.


      Maybe you would like to hear my own theory on this. It’s that the Jews in Russia were actually saved by communism, and they never moved on to understand that free enterprise, with its high appreciation of individual enterprise, as is savored among Jews and as they can experience most profoundly in America, is far superior to the socialist twaddle that many of the kvetching ones insisted on staying with and therefore behind. Does this make any sense to you??

  • NJK

    Funny. It almost sounds like this.

  • Rich Wojcik

    kissing up to Prez. Romney??? Good move, losers.

    • 2yves

      Romney is marginally better than Obama and Bush. So far the Democrats haven’t been able to come up with someone better either. We can only pray that the right person will be able to step forward in 2016.

  • Ramona Graham

    The skit was funny, and you know… this all reminds me of the first debate with Bush and Kerry. Bush seemed like he was on drugs (actually a much worse performance in every way than President Obama’s) and Kerry seemed in command completely. I guess everyone’s forgotten about that. Oh that’s right, everyone on the right is in complete denial about the Bush years, and the fact that no one really likes Romney, everyone is begrudgingly supporting him just because he’s on the ticket. The loonies that were paraded in front of us during the Republican race for the candidacy were the BEST! You guys went all out! And now, with what can only be called a lackluster performance by a usually brilliant speaker you all act like you’ve won some kind of social contest of coolness. Look at yourselves! Bush, Cheney, Cain, Palin, Gingrich, Perry, all hilarious symbols of your party! I get it, you’re disenfranchised now, and you want back in. Amazing!

    • tvlgds

      LOL! Typical liberal drivel. Your brilliant speaker can barely say his name without a teleprompter.

    • 2yves

      There’s a lot to put right, eh, tvlgds? AArrgghh…

        Sadly, it will be like trying to put toothpaste back in the tube.

  • Daniel Porter

    I dunno, I thought “Mathews” telling Obama not to be a p*ssy was pretty straight up cool, I don’t recall them ever being THAT blunt.

  • 2yves

    I am glad the liberals are able to laugh at this. What if Romney knocks Obama out a second time? Would they still be able to laugh?

  • Eh2Zed

    First thing I have laughed at from SNL in over twenty years.

  • docfjs

    One wonder if Obama has “jumped the shark”? When your most valuable asset is looking cool then this kind of satire hurts especially from your buddies on SNL and MSNBC.

    Captain Chaos . . .

    September 7, 2010

    Dear Captain Chaos AKA President Barrack Obama,

    Reading your last economic address reminded me of one of my favorite movies, Cannonball Run. In this movie, a merry band of lead foot drivers blast from one coast to the other wreaking havoc upon the nations roads; kind of like liberal democrats and the body politic. Back to Captain Chaos. This fellow had a mental disorder that he would soothe by putting on a costume and taking on a presumably difficult task. Thus, I crown you, Captain Chaos. The honor comes with a cape, funky boots, and of course a speedo. I recommend you only wear the speedo in private, as it may make a NY Times reporter pass out and the rest of us puke. So the next time you are going to deliver a speech that frankly no one cares a lick about, just step up to the microphone and scream out, “Captain Chaos to the rescue!” At which point the citizens of this great nation will then be on notice to take cover, and use extreme caution.

    Let’s take the healthcare bill that my representative John Hall voted in favor of. This is one piece of legislated chaos an order of magnitude higher that would make a Nazi proud. We don’t need death camps, we need chaos and confusion, as doctors and patients wait to die, or die from waiting, a unionized bureaucrat will be there with form 42-B to inform the concurrent parties that the Tylenol that is so desperately needed will not be available until next weeks allocation comes through the factory – which is on strike because the unions think they are underpaid, and the lawyer that is needed to fill out the waiver for the Tylenol is on sabbatical studying yoga. Cogito ergo sum Chaos!

    Now let’s take financial reform. I have been investing and dealing with money in a mostly responsible way my whole life. Like most people I strive to learn from my mistakes. Like that first year at ASU, that should have been my first year in the Air Force, when that broad in the tight t-shirt, with Citibank emblazoned across you know what, asked me if I wanted a credit card, I said “how many can I get?” I promptly used that card to buy everything I was not supposed to. I made the monthly minimums on time and in cash with the odd jobs I picked up while at school. By the time the summer rolled around I was doing three to four jobs to cover the bill, but I did it. Is the Congress and are you, Mr. Obama, telling me that grown people are incapable of understanding that they are going to have to pay for what they buy, and if they don’t they will be charged interest. Are you all nuts? Don’t answer that. I know the answer. Recently you signed the Financial Regulatory Reform Act, that would among other nasty things, increase the minutia that a borrower would be faced with and create a higher burden for the companies to raise rates on borrowers; in short you are treating adults like children, and this will only lead to more chaos, and not to mention less credit.

    You see Captain Chaos Obama, We The People, get to vote last, while you get to bully us when ever you desire with or without the cape and the funky boots. I am well aware that your ilk has been maneuvering in chaotic fashion to make each vote not about forming a more perfect union, but about administering to the government induced chaos; and the last election, like trained seals, people voted for Democrats, wrongly thinking that they are better at managing the chaos. We The People, are coming to the conclusion that the ordered chaos that evolves out of the free market is far more desirable than the one that the federal government manufactures, with the willing help of unions, via pitting one economic class, or one race against another. We The People are coming to the conclusion that we would rather have a hospital room and insurance at some price, than none at any price, we would rather have a seat on a flight at some price than none at any price, we would rather have a Big Mac at some price than none at any price, we would rather have credit at some price than none at any price; and so on for everything we rely on to lead our modern, and productive lives.

    On November 6, 2012 – we will be choosing a new President that understand all of this and is willing to represent these convictions with authority.

    I haven’t watched SNL for over 20 years. I can see the writing still hasn’t improved, so I’m not missing anything.

  • Jay

    I love it when libs eat their own. Sounds like the media are starting to fall out of love with the Annointed One.

  • david r

    This was a hilarious take on the 1st debate, and comically true at its core. How is Saturday night live getting away with this when they are own by the most liberal network out there NBC? This I don’t understand! It was a great skit by the wunderkinds of SNL.
    Two thumbs up…

    This site would not gloat if Obama asked Romney about his taxes and dual citizenship issues.
