SNL Scrubbed Obama Skit with Lame Excuse

The reason they gave was “just didn’t have time to fit it in”.

Folks, it was the opening skit. How does that make sense.
What did they replace it with?
A parody of the Fox News morning show.

I’m old enough to remember when SNL had guts (and was funny), were known for it and took shots at everything and anyone. Now, just another MSM show carrying water for Obama. Well, it is NBC, what did you expect.

Below is the scrubbed skit which by the way is much funnier than what was aired.

Obama Address Cold Open – May 6, 2012

SOTU Sound Familiar?

I recently posted on FaceBook that we already knew what Obama’s State of the Union speech would be; A slight variation of any of his former speeches. Here’s how we knew:

I think it’s fair to say that many in his party would say his greatest achievement would be ObamaCare (“this is a big f’ing deal” – Biden)
Funny how he didn’t really bring that up.

When he called for an increase in domestic energy production I could only think of the 900,000 thousand barrel elephant in the room. The Keystone pipeline.
Of course this also ties into new jobs, security and energy independence, all of which he touted.

Welcome Comrade Jose Rico

Director for the “Initiative on Educational Excellence”

He was named to the post on Dec. 7, 2011, to assist President Obama’s efforts to improve the academic achievement of Hispanic students. He has been in the administration as an adviser since April 2009, and most recently served as the White House Initiative’s deputy director since Feb. 1, 2010.

Who is he?

He has worked for the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant Rights and New Leaders for new Schools program. He is a disciple of Mike Klonsky who created the small schools movement. Rico was a principal at Multicultural Arts High School for awhile in Chicago in this movement, 75% Hispanic and 25% black, and failed. Or rather his school did–very poor rating. Rico has worked with La Raza, a racist organization promoting hyper-loyalty to Mexico and which advocates taking over a number of southwestern states.

Another Chicago Alinskyite.

Worked closely and recently with Bill Ayers.
Worked with Mike Clonskey. You probably know who Bill Ayers is, the unrepentant terrorist of the 60’s SDS but you may not know so much about Mark Clonskey.

Active in education reform
National Secretary of the SDS
Founder of the Marxist/Leninist wing of the Communist Party
Has actively called for the overthrow of the United States
Mao’s successor praised him for his efforts to spread communism
Blogged for Obama’s campaign until he was called out for being a Communist

Just the kind of guy you need when “fundamentally transforming” America. Just the kind of guy you need defining educational excellence.

Did Congress vet and approve this guy? Of course not. He was a “special appointment” by Obama.
If Rico had needed Senate approval instead of appointment by presidential fiat he wouldn’t have passed the sniff test, but recently Obama has decided to by-pass Congress on virtually everything.

The founders knew that only an informed populace could be free. Obama counts on an uninformed populace.
And remember if “the end justifies the means” (Alinsky) is honesty really necessary?

Debt Limit Talks Reveal Governing Difference

A fundamental difference in governing.
A large European styled socialist government verses a free market small government.
Margaret Thatcher once remarked on the former “socialism works great until the people with money run out of money”.

The President’s Budget for Fiscal Year 2012 would increase the national debt. The CBO says His 2012 Budget Will Raise Debt to 21 Trillion by 2021. And this from the man that keeps talking about an “adult conversation”.
We are currently borrowing 43 cents of every dollar needed to support this government. It should be obvious that we need drastic cuts now and take measures to get the economy back on a positive track.

Today, after another failed meeting, Obama “summoned” congressional leaders to meet with him tomorrow morning. Someone needs to tell Obama’s that this is not a banana republic where a dictators “summons” their congress. Congress and the office of President are EQUALs.

Can the Republicans say “yes” to anything. They can’t say yes to a man who agreed to 800 billion in revenue and then comes back and adds another 400 billion after the agreement had been reached. This is why Speaker Boehner left the meeting without an agreement.

Obama or the democrats have not really offered anything to say yes to. The Republicans have come up with plan after plan. Never once has the president come up with a plan. The only thing he can think to do is “raise taxes”. This he wants to do with the worst job numbers since the Depression, coupled with raising inflation, a housing market as bad as the great depression and failed policies that appear to destroy the country rather than lift it.
We can’t exploit our own resources because of this administration. Granted it has become more difficult under previous administrations as the EPA has gathered strength and momentum but we have lost ten oil rigs to other countries as a result of his drilling moratorium, which the courts finally had to force him to lift. Those rigs have gone to other countries where we will end up buying from.

The Democrats in Congress have not created a budget in over two years.

Remember this is the man who increased the size of government and the national debt more since he’s been in office than all other presidents combined.
 Take a moment to digest that.
He asked for an adult conversation but yet he continues to demagogue and stir the class warfare cauldron.
Corporate jets owners… that tax would only bring in an additional several million or about what we spend in a few minutes.
He keeps saying “millionaires and billionaires yet his tax increase starts at those making $250,000 and more. The majority of small businesses fall in this bracket. These are the bulk of job creators. They are not millionaires or billionaires and an additional tax would further reduce their ability to expand and create new jobs.

He has talked about default. That will not happen. It is unconstitutional, he can’t default. We take in plenty of revenue to pay our debt obligation. What would happen would be cuts to governmental programs. Of course we hear, and this is hard to stomach, “checks might not get sent to social security recipients” and children may not get the health care they need. Folks, how that money is spent is totally up to him.
Why don’t we hear about cuts to the EPA or the Department of Energy or the countless other Federal agencies? It’s always the seniors and the children that suffer… why is that?

The only person/program that has cut from medicare has been Obamacare:

Altogether, ObamaCare cuts $818 billion from Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) from 2014-2023, the first 10 years of its full implementation, and $3.2 trillion over the first 20 years, 2014-2033. Adding in ObamaCare cuts for Medicare Part B (physicians fees and other services) brings the total cut to $1.05 trillion over the first 10 years and $4.95 trillion over the first 20 years.

There will be additional cuts under ObamaCare to Medicare Advantage, the private option to Medicare that close to one-fourth of all seniors have chosen for their coverage under the program because it gives them a better deal. Mr. Foster estimates that 50% of all seniors with Medicare Advantage will lose their plan because of these cuts. Mr. Obama’s pledge that “If you like your health plan, you will be able to keep it” clearly does not apply to America’s seniors.

He referenced Reagan and how the debt ceiling was raised many times in the past. He failed to mention that when this was last needed he voted against raising the debt limit with a strong statement on how irresponsible such an action would be. As a matter of fact not one sitting democrat senator voted to raise the debt limit when it was last needed.

Shoveling More of the Same

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, said on Wednesday. “We own the economy. We own the beginning of the turnaround and we want to make sure that we continue that pace … (that pace = 1.8%)

I’ll bet the 14 million unemployed didn’t think that quite so funny.

This came the same week that Obama tried to explain the stagnant economy by blaming technology such as ATM’s on job loses.
Two words… pathetically sophomoric
One word… grasping

If this man and those that agree with, work with, advise and surround him are allowed another four years then we’ve lost the country. You will wake up one day and wonder “wha happened”.

Three months before his visit in 1959 to the US, Nikita Kruschev, Soviet Union Premier, one of the all-time butchers of human beings in the world, made the following quote:

We cannot expect the American people to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism until they awaken one day to find they have Communism.
