You beat me to it on the fact checking. Of course anything negative toward Obowma is to be brushed aside. Just ask the dems.

Kudos to SNL for being bipartisan in their smart-assedness!

The fact that they will skewer both the left and the right make it all the more easier to laugh when it's 'my guy' they are going after.

I do wonder how this translates to the Chinese and what they make of it

Where were you people during the Clinton adminstration??? Don't you watch SNL??? How did you all decide that SNL doesn't go after liberals or Dems?

And, once again for those of you who don't watch but think you know what is said on Countdown or The Daily Show, both have been critical of Obama more than once.

Sure Walmart is the largest, but why single them out?
Its obvious, we need to raise corporate taxes, raise taxes on the wealthy and ... well raise taxes, raise taxes, raise taxes, that aught to make operating a business in America more appealing, and fewer manufacturing jobs would go overseas.

0bama Care
Carbon cap & trade
ah yes.... that will bring back more jobs.

Exactly, my resentment of other "comedians" stems from their manipulative choice of targets.

Yeah, it was funny and also mirrored the reality of the day. The spending, the lies, the "You're F***ing me", in incredulity of his "words".

Loved it.

I agree. SNL has always been an "equal opportunity" satire show. I remember them going after Clinton, Ross Perot, Dan Quayle, and a number of other pols.

Yes it has, they are always looking for some type of exploit

The ironic thing here is; why can a satire based show balance and the media can't ?
