Fw: Steve Bridges-don't miss this-

If you don’t remember Steve Bridges, he is the impersonator who did such a good job on George W. Bush.  He has made an amazing transformation. 
Steve Bridges imitated George Bush on the Jay Leno Show during the entire eight years he was president.  He was made up to look and act almost exactly like Bush.   He has now started imitating Obama and REALLY does it right.  The Administration has tried to put a stop to Bridges' act because Obama has made it known that he is deeply offended.  .     Click

I see the right wing sites run this text verbatim, but pretty sure Obama doesn't give a shit and absolutely positive that the administration would do nothing that would encourage the resulting uproar if Bridges was muzzled.

Couldn't just link to the clip and say "funny!"

Nope, they had to tack on the usual RW mental masturbation.

Bullshit. I'd bet good money that Obama doesn't even know this exists, and if he did know I'd bet even more money that he doesn't care.

Typical its typical right wing mindset: something doesn't need to be good in its own right, the only thing that's important is that it pisses off liberals and shows conservatives as a persecuted minority. Even if there's no actual evidence of either.

How bizarre, conservatives linking to actual humor.

Now that's hope and change we can believe in!

Why would Obama *care* about something like this? SNL has been imitating and roasting politicians of all stripes since its inception in the 1970s with no one caring a fig. I think Obama (and any pres) has bigger fish to fry than "worry" about someone imitating him on late night tv. Sheesh. Get over yourselves, wingtardz.

Last I heard the only person who got upset over being imitated on SNL was *Sarah Palin,* who complained about Tina Fey's imitation of her. And the wingtardz were predictably scathing of Fey... how DARE Fey imitate the wingtarded goddess??? But I forget: what's sauce for the goose is NOT sauce for the gander, and rightwing hypocrisy is unlimited.

I watched some of it. It's really tame stuff--as you'd expect from the Jay Leno show. The idea that this above any other impersonation would offend the president is just a very stupid attempt to pander to rightwing fantasy. It doesn't take much to fool the followers on the right, so they should love this. In fact the more idiotic ideas are what really appeals to the right. You know, keep the words and ideas simple and uncreative. Make them think people on the left are at their same mental/emotional level. It's like middle school all over again.

Love the Republican two prong attack on health care

There has been political satire and impersonations since forever. As much as I'm growing to loathe Obama, I'm sure that he could give a sh*t about something like this.

Agree with Bebe: middle school level of appeal. Oooh: lookit what the mean grrrl is doing!

Good distraction for the rubes, so they don't see how badly we're being ripped off by extending the Bush tax cuts.

The whole "liberals are easily offended" stereotype is a curious one because as far as I can tell it has no basis in reality. It's conservatives who usually get their panties in a twist, especially this time of year.

yes, as a right winger, I have to agree with my liberal, entitlement, hands out for my cash friends. I doubt he is bothered at all...really. It does not bother him that not only has the US realized he is a fraud but the whole world has too. And again, why do I have to support you bums just because I am much smarter and way more successful? What is it you deserve again? You deserve what I deserve and what I have? Horse$#!@, you deserve what you make, what you earn fool!!! Which for some reason is always very much less than what you think you deserve!!!

You have friends who run Big Ag, Big Oil, and the Chamber of Commerce? I'd suggest some new friends.

It does not bother him that not only has the US realized he is a fraud but the whole world has too

Is that why the world gave him the Peace Prize? And what exactly was he a fraud about? Killing Osama bin Laden? Passing the biggest middle class tax cut in history? Saving 3 million jobs, plus the American Auto industry?

And again, why do I have to support you bums just because I am much smarter and way more successful? What is it you deserve again? You deserve what I deserve and what I have?

I don't recall asking you for a dime. The only thing you "have" is stupidity and anger, and I don't want either.

Horse$#!@, you deserve what you make, what you earn fool!!! Which for some reason is always very much less than what you think you deserve!!!

Your English teacher deserves less than what she got, because she didn't do a very good job teaching you to write.

As for "what you have", I'm sure you earned it all yourself, right? You didn't benefit from public schools or universities at all? You didn't make use of the infrastructure, judicial system, or vast resources of our country? You've never worked a government job or taken any government benefits, including Social Security and Medicare, right? You never enjoyed the freedom which our armed services provide?

Yes, I'm sure you did it all on your own.

My Mom (who voted tor Obama) forwarded this email to me the other day. I've spent quite a bit of time with various search engines and have been unable to find a shred of evidence that he's offended or that "the administration has taken steps to shut Steve Bridges down. This is mainly being circulated by websites like FreeRepublic and ilovehandguns.com, people who are predisposed to hate Obama. Another conservative echo chamber circle jerk.
