To do so, we need to come up with a first-rate, prime-time President Obama impersonator. First, we start with a prime-time Barack Obama impersonator talent search contest across the nation in the same format as American Idol. We are seeking the one person who can best look like, sound like, and capture the physical mannerisms of the president. When we find our man, we provide him a monologue that includes the following:
"Let me be clear . . . John . . . We're not campaigning anymore. The election is over."
"Let me be clear . . . Over the last fifteen months, we've traveled to every corner of the United States. I've now been in 57 states."
"Let me be clear . . . My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it."
"Let me be clear . . . The point I was making was not that Grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn't. But she is a typical white person ..."
"Let me be clear . . . I've been fighting . . . alongside ACORN, on issues you care about, my entire career."
"Let me be clear . . . You can't go take a trip to Las Vegas or go down to the Super Bowl on the taxpayer's dime."
"Let me be clear . . . In America, there's a failure to appreciate Europe's leading role in the world."
"Let me be clear . . . America has shown arrogance . . . At times we sought to dictate our terms."
"Let me be clear . . . The United States has been enriched by Muslim Americans...I know, because of my Muslim faith."
"Let me be clear . . . I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody."
"Let me be clear . . . I don't know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts ... but I think it's fair to say ... that the Cambridge police acted stupidly."
"Let me be clear . . . We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation."
"Let me be clear . . . I won."
Are some of the above quotations, perchance, taken out of context? Does it matter? Does it matter that I inserted Obama's favorite phrase "Let me be clear" every time? Did it matter that Sarah Palin never said, "I can see Russia from my house"? . . . read more
