New JibJab: Barack Obama, superhero!

posted at 1:40 pm on June 20, 2009 by Allahpundit

Don’t jump to conclusions. A tipster sent this in frustration over yet another example of new-media Obama hagiography, but this is less a salute to The One than a grand goof on his messianism and the outsized ambitions of agenda. The “hee hee, ha ha” line about halving the deficit should be proof enough. Anyway, good stuff. And even by JibJab standards, the animation’s fab.

It definitely does in the “disregard the mounting debt” line, but other than that I suppose it doesn’t attack him directly but it is not one bit flattering.

OneGyT on June 20, 2009 at 5:44 PM

And yet late night comics can find nothing funny, ironic, or grist for humor about Obama. I guess we’re a long way from a color blind society at least where librals are concerned.

eaglewingz08 on June 20, 2009 at 5:47 PM

they should have made his ears wings *L*

Magnus on June 20, 2009 at 5:49 PM

First time I’ve been able to log on in over a week, and I get treated with that. Good stuff.

BadgerHawk on June 20, 2009 at 5:53 PM

A+++

Would watch again!

Midas on June 20, 2009 at 5:55 PM

Now that Das Furor plays golf: Obama = putz.

BHO Jonestown on June 20, 2009 at 6:05 PM

Here’s a pretty funny low budget Obama Godfather parody..

deedtrader on June 20, 2009 at 6:09 PM

Am I the only one who noticed that the “Pirates” that Super O-hole was beating up and throwing into sharks maws were white? Are there even ANY white pirates left in the world? I mean the Arabs were depicted as Arabs, so why?

Sigh…

GunRunner on June 20, 2009 at 6:14 PM

But I argue it doesn’t attack him, either.

Skywise

There are still too many people out there who are in full swoon mode still (outside of Chris Matthews) that “attacking” him will cause a blowback against whatever side is doing so.

Besides, you don’t have to attack him, go after his party. They’re so close to edge right now, 2010 will make the House takeover in 1994 look like very ordinary. That is if the GOP can get their priorities straight.

StevefromMKE on June 20, 2009 at 6:24 PM

A much needed laugh.

There is so much he is doing that is frustrating if not infuriating.

Thanks Hot Air.

Yakko77 on June 20, 2009 at 6:26 PM

The JibJab boys are liberals. This is not attacking Obama…this is quite positive to him. I love you, Mr. President!

dcwvu on June 20, 2009 at 6:48 PM

The sad thing is Obama realy thinks this is all true and he is a super hero God help us

True that.

P.P.S. Pirates!

Exactly. Putting in Somalis was too un-PC.

GunRunner on June 20, 2009 at 6:14 PM

Because Somali teenagers on a blow up speedboat aren’t visually “Pirates” and it wouldn’t be as funny. Those were the “Arrgh matey” pirates. Terrorist usually is visually equal to an Arab “Durka, durka!”.

Magnus on June 20, 2009 at 7:17 PM

While graphically, not in the same league—I think this low budget Obama-Godfather parody is actually funnier… and its pretty clear this guy is no fan of the Big O or any of the Dems.

“You smell like money” LMAO

The ending credits are a hoot too.

I hope there’s a 2nd episode…

Only in Pittsburgh.

Damn straight there are still white pirates.

I notice that the music is the great American (Confederate?) tune When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again. Anyone see a greater significance to this?

njcommuter on June 20, 2009 at 9:38 PM

Why I wasnt sure if it was a parody or it was Barack himself being narcisistic.

William Amos on June 20, 2009 at 3:35 PM

Must have been a part of his new self-deprecation shtick.

baldilocks on June 20, 2009 at 9:53 PM

Early in the song it says “He passed a major stimulus for the Bourgeois.” which is not a compliment.

Joy on June 20, 2009 at 9:55 PM

It’s official. I’m now convinced conservatives are almost as stupid as liberals.

Anyone who doesn’t see that video as a direct, and not so subtle, Obama slam is clueless.

Actually, it’s more of a slam at the vast majority of people, regardless of gender, race, sexual preference, and political persuasion, who are just plain stupid.

Loved the Batman parody sky silhouette of his head. Very funny.

I’m pretty sure he meant competent pirates.

Jaynie59 on June 20, 2009 at 10:03 PM

Go take a look at the other political JibJab satires (like This Land, Time for some Campaignin’)

They dug into Hillary, Kerry, Bush, McCain and Palin with some pretty low jabs…

Here? Pretty tame stuff.

Oooh, he’s got big ears… yeah that’s biting political satire there… No… Obama’s made fun of his own ears, they’re “fair game”.

Skywise on June 20, 2009 at 10:54 PM

This is yet another GREAT effort by the peeps at JibJab. This certainly isn’t a love fest, they are poking fun at his hype, they pointed out the things he said he would do and has failed at (unemployment, budget, etc.).

Great job JibJab!

cannonball on June 21, 2009 at 2:12 AM

Hilarious, as always.

Cr4sh Dummy on June 21, 2009 at 3:18 AM

The problem wasn’t the video, it’s the libtards we have to deal with daily who believe that Obama-nation is great.

darktood on June 21, 2009 at 7:08 AM

Love the ears and the Flash garb.

T J Green on June 21, 2009 at 7:37 AM

The only problem with this is, the guy you’re making fun of, Obama, is such a narcissist that he can’t go 24 hours without seeing his ugly ear flapping puss on TV to the point that many are force into involuntary projectile vomiting every time we see him.

Jeff from WI on June 21, 2009 at 8:19 AM

It’s not so much poking fun at Obama – it’s laughing at the morons who still see him as their Messiah.

I don’t know how to get them to see reality. Maybe this is a beginning.

Squiggy on June 21, 2009 at 8:49 AM

Totally agree. From the big ears to the “claims” of what he’s done. Everyone has to know those claims don’t hold true.

katablog.com on June 21, 2009 at 9:12 AM

The whole family enjoyed that, definitely unflattering and made us laugh.

Happy Father’s Day dads!

KateinCo on June 21, 2009 at 11:14 AM

Really funny stuff…but no doubt the most amusing part of the video is the fact that the far leftist douchebags actually think this way about Obongo lol… Pathetic dolts

Jackson1227 on June 21, 2009 at 12:51 PM

…It’s also the “Underdog” theme song so, uh, dunno if thats deeper…

I just love the way (after watching it for like the 5th time he looks like a skinny tele-tubby in that outfit.
the only disturbing thing I see is when he says “Pirates” I wonder how they got that footage. if he did it for them then this really is the “The Real Life” MTV PRESIDENCY…

Obambi is a far king idiot…..I cannot believe that people dont see though the BS

katablog.com on June 21, 2009 at 9:12 AM

Dude, I believe that’s the whole point. Prog Obots do NOT see the satire. They view this cartoon as a documentary. They really think that Obama achieved everything, singlehandedly, depicted in the video.

The sycophantic adoration of the US media can only debate whether it’s an insult to merely call Obama a super hero versus a god. The people at CBS, by their own admission, thought the Jib Jab video was great. Do you think everybody at CBS is anti-Obama?

adagioforstrings on June 21, 2009 at 9:10 PM

That Son of…showed upon TV yesterday with a “Fathers Day” message for Dads. Can’t someone keep that jerk off TV for 1 solid day.
