Obama: No earmarks, after this

"As a candidate, Barack Obama once said that a president has to be able to do more than one thing at a time. Wednesday he proved it, though not in the way he had in mind. He criticized pork-barrel spending in the form of "earmarks," urging changes in the way that Congress adopts the spending proposals. Then he signed a spending bill that contains nearly 9,000 of them, some that members of his own staff shoved in last year when they were still members of Congress. "Let there be no doubt, this piece of legislation must mark an end to the old way of doing business, and the beginning of a new era of responsibility and accountability," Obama said." [link]

I mean honestly, how can SNL even attempt to do a parody on this man. He is a leaving, breathing, walking contradiction and a parody of everything he has said. Sometimes we just have to enjoy the humor in everything that is going on around us and to you Mr. Obama I must say:
