“page not found” notice.”

same thing happened to me!

I am sure it is funny!

He will NOT recover his credibility. He is an official laughing stock.

He can talk about inequality, immigration, whatever he flaps his jaws about — why should anyone believe him??

The absurdity of the Obama administration will be defined by the word “period”, the way the Clinton administration will be remembered by the meaning of “is”. Bottom line both are liars and frauds.

It is pretty funny....however, I’d have gone with the “self-abuse gesture” when Obama spoke about the success of ObamaCare.

Again - SNL soft pedals on obama. Just funny things that just “happen” to obama. He is still above it all.

Imagine if this was Bush...

I think the sign language guy is symbolic of all the pure b.s. that comes out of Obama’s mouth every day. Garbage in..garbage out! (LOL!)

Yep. When Bush was in office, or any other Republican, they were the joke in the skits. In this skit, they don’t lampoon Obama, everyone around him is a joke. Even the canned laughter sounds forced. I Didn’t really find it that funny.

Well, Rasmussen has his approval rating recovering somewhat.

I'd say that considering this, WE will not recover our credibility as a nation. WE are a laughing stock because we will not reject the Jester-in-Chief.

They don't dare go after Odinga directly.

Comedians that do so end up dead.

“WE are a laughing stock “

indeed . . .

which is not good for global peace and security

truly tragic;

US will recover when there are grown-ups in charge again.

Sadly politics has degenerated into name-calling rather than thoughtful debate.

A vacuum of true leadership at the moment.

That will not be possible when perpetual, covetous children and mental inmates have gained critical mass in this country. You know the solution, but it is not allowed to be expressed on public forums.

“when perpetual, covetous children and mental inmates have gained critical mass in this country”

tipping point . . .

Welfare fraud should be priority number one; audit recipients as the IRS audits taxpayers; fair is fair.

The 0 care popularity amoung the young indicates some are getting the message that there is no free lunch — unless YOU pay for someone else’s lunch, and / or there really is no lunch so it is still not free.

So . . . 0 and minions have been doing everything to get the tipping point tipped for good; maybe they tipped their hand a bit too much with 0 care.

You’re right. They still only make obama out to be Oliver Hardy - just trying to do his thing, but ALL these idiots around him cause him all the problems.

Nobody will acknowledge that HE is the “boss”..(well, Valerie Jarrett aside..)

I’m already looking forward to the liberals’ first anniversary gala celebration of Manadela’s death. This one was hilarious. I love comedy.

Looks like the sign language interpreter is a regular. Here he is next to current President Zuma at the ANC’s birthday celebration:

OBAMA: "Mandela was my idol and mentor."

INTERPRETER "He's got a heavy date with a blonde.
Wants to get rid of his wife for a few hours."

Five minutes of the mildest satire, then back to over an hour of the usual mockery, usual subjects.
