SNL Vs. Obama: Sketch Details All The President's Failures Since Taking Office (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"Saturday Night Live" opened its show with a particularly harsh send-up of President Obama last night. The critique focused on failed promises, as a checklist repeatedly appeared to the right of the screen that had "NOT DONE" checked off next to the following categories: global warming, immigration reform, gays in the military, limits on executive powers, torture prosecutions, closing Gitmo, withdrawing from Iraq, improving the status of the fight in Afghanistan, health care reform, etc.

"There are those on the right who are angry. They think that I'm turning this great country into something that resembles the Soviet Union or Nazi Germany, but that's just not the case. Because when you look at my record it's very clear what I've done so far and that is nothing. Nada. Almost one year and nothing to show for it."

While the president is three and a half months shy of his one year mark, we get the point. The sketch made clear that this is a critique of Obama from the left: "I just don't see why the right is so riled up, I mean how do you think the left feels. They're the ones who should be mad." And the writers pointed out that with a super majority in the Senate, getting his agenda through shouldn't be a particularly difficult undertaking.
