Another lame skit where others are taking blame for flubs by the president. Seems these are the only plot in president skits, with different people. Slightly funny.

Not sure if I understand the whole "Isreali" thing politically I thought we've been unseprable for 6+ decades, youre not siding or even remotely against Obama for opinionating that Netanyahu is a good leader to his people... strange way to sway the public to say the least but accurate. His administration was very dismissive of Isreal..

UN Security Council resolution 242, and subsequently 338 have both been signed by the US demanding Israel return to its pre-1967 borders. Israel has also refused to sign the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty. The CIA has confirmed its estimate that Israel has over 200 nuclear warheads. All of these are facts. Yet it is Israel who dares think Iran is the greatest threat to peace in the Middle East? A country Israel sold weapons to in the 80s??? (see Iran-Contra official investigation, facts, and conclusion)
The US went to war with Iraq, and deposed its government in large part because of the UN Security Council resolution that it should verify its disarmament of weapons of mass destruction.
But I guess our leaders will use any excuse ('we have unyielding support for Israel') to kill Arabs. Yay oil greed and racism...

This is the only SNL sketch I've ever seen where they even remotely poke fun at the Obama's ever. SNL is so Democratic party they won't even do one sketch making fun of him, it has to be making fun of his detractors in Congress.
