    Pretty poor attempt to impersonate him.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    You guys are not appreciating the brilliance of Dana Carvey as GHW Bush. "NOt gonna do it....wouldn't be prudent."

    Obama is frustratingly hard to cover, and parody. I suspect given a couple more years, somebody will nail him.

    As far as the parody..... that's what SNL does.
    I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.

    Even Bush appreciated that. Wasn't there a parody where Carvey played Bush, and Bush took part in it?

    That would have been the easy way to go..... but you gotta give SNL credit for taking on Obama with something that has teeth - a do nothing Presidency - has WAY more teeth than a teleprompter.

    If he could have approximated the voice, it might have been better. I dunno, I think it was just a miss. Glad to see they're still going after him, even though they were somewhat "pro-Obama" during the election, but it was just a swing and a miss. It happens.

    They could have done both. It would have been great to see him make Biden like gaffs because he had to read what was being fed to him. Then they could have went to McCain and other repubs holding the prompter operator hostage re-writing the script.
