Funny Obama Videos

Everything being equal, some video creators have been focusing on making fun of Barack Obama. That may be a pretty risky thing, since far too many folks are overly sensitive about the charming Democratic Presidential candidate. Some humorists tend to back away from parodying him, out of fear of offending others. In all fairness, however, anybody running for such an important political position should expect that people are going to be satirizing him or her.

A wealth of parodies have been made about Hillary Clinton, so Obama should expect to be lampooned as well.

To be honest, it has been a challenge trying to find video parodies of Barack Obama worth mentioning, but I did manage to come across a few.

Obama Verses Jackson

I don't know whether to wince or laugh at this parody, featuring Obama and Jesse Jackson in a video game, where they battle it out. While some folks can watch this video and take it in stride, others may be offended, since it features Obama- the first really viable African-American to run for President- battling with Jesse Jackson, who ran unsuccessfully for the Democratic nomination a few years back.

This is as politically incorrect as you can get, but perhaps that's a good thing.

Obama Goes Hollywood

How can you not be amused by this funny video, entitled Baracky: The Movie, an entertaining send-up of Rocky?

This produced some healthy guffaws from my person upon viewing it.

Jedi Master?

This cartoon parody makes fun of some key moments of the Obama campaign. My guess is that this was not made by an Obama supporter. Still, you have to give whoever made it some points for coming up with something clever.

Shades of Britney

In an obvious takeoff of the infamous "Leave Britney Alone!" video made famous on You Tube, the maker of this one features a tearful Obama supporter, loyally defending his candidate. While the quality of this particular video is diminished by the poor lighting, the humor is still on target.

Obama Verses the Prez
I think you sort of figured that, after doing those dance moves on Ellen Degeneres's talk show, Baracj Obama was opening himself up for the inevitable satires that would follow.

In this video, Obama's dance moves are compared to those of soon-to-be-dumped President George W. Bush's example of fancy foot work.

My analysis?

Neither of them is going to make us forget about Fred Astaire any time soon!

Gassy Obama

Yes, it's the obligatory phony farting video. It's crude, rude and gross, but it's out there..

This Is Just the Beginning!

If Barack Obama wins the Presidency, he needs to prepare himself for the onslaught of political parodies bound to be created by both those who like him and by those who don't. In the one-on-one interviews I've seen him give, he appears to have a solid sense of humor. That's good, because he will definitely need it.
