SNL Serves Obama a Prodigious Piece of Palin Pie and Highlights The Audacity of Broke

November 30, 2009

Five Star Unafraid Comedy returns to SNL as they lambaste the presumptuousness and cocky naivete of President Barack Obama.  The skit involves a recent Joint Press Conference in Beijing with Obama and President Hu Jintao.

Naturally, assuming the lead role, Obama (who else?) opens the conference with his typical, arrogant, oratory, and dictates to Jintao the “serious issues” that need to be addressed which will “require compromise and understanding“:

  • The unfair valuation of China’s currency
  • China’s Trade Imbalance
  • and China’s Human Rights.

Jintao, through his interpreter, immediately and skillfully reverses the direction of the discussion. The Chinese President begins to surgically remove the pomposity from the delusional brain of the tenderfoot Obama. The hilarious skit painfully juxtaposes the obviously stronger position of China over the US, and the superior diplomatic talent of a stronger, more seasoned, Chinese leader against an egotistical sophomore:

I completely understand your feelings of entitlement to come here and lecture China on our shortcomings. After all, our country does owe the United States a great deal of money.

Oh, wait! Hold on a moment. I believe I had that backwards. Now that I think about it, it is your country that owes us a large sum of money.”

In the grown-up world of reality where people deal in facts, the real life situation plays out something like this:

Imagine you loaned a guy a thousand bucks. He’s got a pretty good record of paying his bills. And let’s say he has 50 thousand in reserve, and a nice cash flow.

He hasn’t paid you back yet and you’re watching him flub one ridiculous money-making scheme after another. Would you lose confidence and call in the debt for payment before he blows it all? Would you apply some pressure, maybe report him to the credit agencies to hammer his scores as a friendly reminder?

On the consumer level, when a debt begins to grow moldy, creditors will often cut their losses and liquefy – selling-off the debt to another party for sometimes a smaller amount than the original, while the debt still has a pulse. That party will then apply heavier-handed tactics to collect. That’s basically how it works. Consequently, the debtor is now “high risk,” diminishing his prospects for future prosperity. He begins to live in worry over an emergency that might blind-side him and render him destitute.

You’ll be relieved to know that China has not done that to us yet, even though we owe them close to a trillion bucks, as they watch our government’s peculiar financial speculations with their money.

But you should know that if they ever decide to dump our debt onto the international market, a lot of smart people wonder, would the US economy survive?

I’m wondering would the nation survive?

Suggesting that left wing journalists are sometimes temporarily afflicted with an ability to observe and discuss facts, when those facts might potentially implicate the Right of misconduct, back in 2005, during

Bush 43’s administration, a post appeared on The Daily Kos.  Jerome a Paris wrote a commentary based on an article by Paul Krugman of the NY Slimes, describing a very dark picture of the addictive trading practices of the US with China, and the soaring debt we owe them. Paris said,

” …it’s even worse than Krugman says.”

But O’ ye of little faith in Big Gov, be comforted. In that same year, Head of the Fed, Ben Bernanke, wasn’t overly concerned:

“I don’t think that the Chinese ownership of U.S. assets is so large as to put our country at risk economically,”

Thanks, Ben. And we don’t think that the tumor in your head is so large as to put you at risk medically.

In 2008, the US Government emptied our national treasury of more than the amount that we owe China, spending our tax dollars on ‘Bailouts for Failures’, ‘Cash for Clunkers’, (redundant?) and various other flopped political experiments, that we know about,  for the specific purpose of reinvigorating our suffering economy. Do those brilliant stratagems look, walk, and talk as much like political pay-offs and the sudden expansion of spread-the-wealth socialism to you as they do to me?

I mean, if the stimulus money was really about job creation, after pumping an extra trillion skins into the game a year ago, don’t you think we might have seen a single blip register upward on the Jobometer by now? If, as our government explained to us, those bailed out banks and corporations were too big to fail, this SNL skit strongly suggests that China may not think the same way about America.

Big At-A-Boys to SNL for a World-Class work of comedy, and for taking a courageous lead in exposing the little man behind the big media curtain who they call Oz. The skit is an effective hallucination-buster after more than a year of unprecedented, nauseating, adulation, of Obama from the fawning coalition of the MSM, the DNC, and the Hip Hollywood Left. This skit reveals what is becoming increasingly obvious to all – Obama himself is drunk on the Kool Aid and believes his own sycophancy. He is shocked that China does not.  So let us all pause from extolling the Unprecedented Otherworldly Virtues of the Greatest First Pacific President of America who ever was or ever will be, and return momentarily to that raw world of reality on earth where if you don’t pay your bills, they will come and take your stuff.

You know he’s seen the skit. And now he has tasted one small serving of the putrid pie the coalition on the left has been force-feeding Sarah Palin and the country for over a year.

How does it taste Barry?

Please visit and invite others to visit the SNL web site to drive up their ratings as a way of voting our approval for a job well done.

    We’re starting to see the forest from the trees now, I believe.

    How’d we get in this position? Why did President Clinton award China “Preferred Nation Trading Status” a la Wal Mart (Bill Clinton’s home state of Arkansas) back in 1996? Tip of the iceberg, I’m afraid..

    Excellent article, Nick Chagouris, keep ’em coming. The stench emanating from D.C. is horrible.

    That piece on SNL was FUNNY AS ****. “So you are saying that you need to spend money to make money?” I love that part and the “how many jobs was created by your 787 billion dollar stimulus” “umm. none”. That was unbelievably funny. I almost thought attacking Prophet Obama was illegal under Commisar Jeff Zucker and Dictator Jeffrey Immelt in the Nation of NBC. I guess SNL is going rogue. Ooo, ATTACK THEIR non-diversity by using non-diversity people to show it!!!!

      Agreed. Hilarious.

      If only it was “partisan business as usual.” But it’s not.
      Not by a long stretch and I know you know.

      I confess, I laughed and felt great satisfaction watching O-hu-ma get
      pummeled to the size he really is.

      But O the mess we are in.

      Keep up the good fight my friend

    That was one funny SNL skit.

    But really, Fred Armisen has to be the WORST President impersonator on the show ever. Hammond and Ferrel were brilliant as Clinton and Bush, so this is really a step down.

    I mean, even The Rock did a much better job as Obama in a skit.

      I have noted the same. Only this time he used some Obama-flection. Ever so slightly. IN past skits Fred completely omitted any hint of effort to try to impersonate.

      I think this is by design.

      They have been afraid up until now.

      Or maybe the guy just flat out sucks.

      There are plenty of Obama peccadillos to pounce on.

      Personally, it’s his “eSSeSS” that drive me through the wall. Notice, it’s just short of a whistle.

      He’S Such a pompouS aSS!

        SNL put a toe in the water and found it to be warm and comfortable. I am waiting for the real pointed comedy to follow this test case. This was very funny.

          Which is why I requested the readers of my blog to visit the SNL web site – to drive up the ratings and further encourage the good work.

          Thank you for your comment –

    Doesn’t China, like most of the WWII “allies” still owe the US for
    war loans and material? I’d guess Russia could pay us back for
    lend lease and we would be debt free. lol

    A while back I finally realized who Obama reminds me of when he gives a speech…Captain James T. Kirk. Go back and listen to a few of Capt Kirk’s intense speeches and you’ll see that Obama sounds just like him.

      Agree. He talks like Kirk and looks like Spock.

    nick, i was real disappointed in your beloved faux news network this morning. in the midst of: recession, a maniac who escaped from prison, the fort hood shrink, the health care crisis, and the myraid of unauspcious thunderings on america’s horizon, faux news takes no less than five shameless opportunities to ruminate about tiger wood’s private matters, shamelessly soundbiting and decontextualizing for their own purpose a few of his carefully chosen words to make fauxnews look like they were breaking some story. they even professed that some of their viewers did not want them to report on this…. so they do it anyways, not for truth, not because it’s important, but because ………………..oh i don’t know…..how bout let’s call in a senior sports illustrated writer who has followed tiger for his entire career to speculate on whether or not tiger’s fans / endorsements would stand behind him. if they would use some of that zeal and tenacity to get at the truth behind obama, as opposed to coddling him and high fiving his pro-american war rhethoric, then perhaps your prior endorsement of faux news to me personally would sit better. for now, i’m just not impressed.

      …almost forgot. Every day there are probably a dozen or more shows with unique hosts panels and formats on Fox. I’ve found the morning shows to be the least serious of the others. I recommend Shep Smith, Neil Cavuto, and Brett Bair for weekday viewing of serious and unbiased commentary. Panel guests are either known or identified of their partisanship. That’s fair. And they do indeed balance the guests.

      In fact, one guest that pops up like a boil on Bill O’Reilly is a Marxist Racist Pompous young profesor name Marcus Lamont Hill, wh is also a staunch supporter of the cop killer Mumia. Murdocj was reported to have fired him because of lots of protests for paying the scuz bag. But alas, like a festering boil – He’s Back.

      See this blog site for unmerciful betaing up of Fox News. There are plenty other blogs criticing them.

      Gott keep ’em honest.

    So welcome to NewsReal where the commentary is served to more discerning tastes.

    Faux News, as you call it is really not mine. And I only offer it to people who must watch TV. This is the medium I use for information. TV is entertainment. I was kidding when I said my last name is Murdoch. Fox really is’t mine and I am not really going to fire Bill O’Reilly – tho’ I’d like to.

    But I can absolutely assure you of this: Every news channel (news business) is covering the Tiger story. Whatever sells. America ADORES celebrity. We are obsessed with it – them. Let’s just all be grateful that Michael Jackson only had one life and one death. Fox nauseatingly covered that story as well for about 14 days….even as Obama was pushing deals that would rob America of more of her liberties.

    I do admit, I watch Fox when I watch TV. Why? It is the best available news mediu on TV. Simple. It is not surprising that their ratings dwarf all the others. Even Demoncraps watch it because, again, it’s the best coverage and has the least amount of State Censorship and Orwellian-speak coverage than all its rivals.

    Which brings us back full circle to my typing fingers and why we are growing more and more dependent upon the internet for truth. When big dollars begin to sponsor web and blog sites, kiss the truth good bye – especially in 2009 America. And lets all pray Obama doesn’t turn off our internet. Google and Microsoft were huge contributors of his campaign. I hope those Mega Corporations are principled. What do you think?

    Hey, thanks for the comment, Ami, and please keep ’em coming.
