SNL Mocks Obama: 'Frankly, I Might Be Long Dead' Before
businessinsider ^ | Sep. 28, 2012

Saturday Night Live had fun at President Barack Obama's expense last night in another special Thursday installment leading up to the election, mocking the president for a message that the economy will get better — sometime in the not-specific future.

Jay Pharoah, cast as Obama this season, was at a town-hall-style rally in Ohio, where he found it difficult to find a supporter who was "better off" under his economy — or who had a job at all.

"I understand your frustration," Pharoah said to one woman who said she had been unable to find a job since 2009. "I said from Day One that real change takes more than one term, or even one president. I don't know if it will even happen in eight years. Might take 12. Frankly, I might be long dead. Maybe you'll be dead too."

There was only one person SNL's Obama could find at the rally who even had a job — but he turned out to be a manager at Burger King who had been a former executive at Bank of America. In calling on other supporters, he encountered a woman who sells actual apples, a man who chases raccoons out of foreclosed homes, and ... a meth cook who SNL's Obama said was "fired up."

I loved those flags! They may not mock him much but they get his over the top narcissism. It’s like a little kid... ..and I’ll be president! And I’ll have my own flags! And everyone will look up to me! So immature.

Pharoah = King = What Obozero wants to be. If only that damn Constitution wasn’t in the way. /s!

Actually, those are Ohio state flags.

I made the same mistake four years ago, and, after posting a vicious e-mail rant to everyone I ever knew since the fifth grade, someone pointed that out to me.

I had to do an Emily Litella. Most embarrassing.

Oh, well that's entirely different.

Nevermind.
