9. What was really freaky is that "The Roc" -- the actor -- had Obama's voice & inflection down cold.
I was impressed.

10. He did,
but the Obama impression isn't that hard. He's not complicated, not given to wild swings in behavior, and most of his emotion is in his voice.

I think that's part of why he's so powerful - there's a steadiness and stillness about him that inspires confidence. He's solid.

I find it very wonderful that they got to use The Rock in a Barack Obama skit - how perfect was that?

And you just know Obama's laughing at it, too................

13. Maybe Obama's lack of quirks makes him harder to get right
I've seen great bush je and sr and great Clinton...no impressive Obamas.

Sort of surprises me. The way he uses his voice and hands are distinctive enough.

17. I just thought that The Rock did him MUCH better than the regular SNL guy who does Obama.
I think the little weaselly guy tries too hard.

18. I agree........
OUR PRESIDENT OBAMA isn't husky, like The Rock, but he conveys a kind of power that's lacking in the little weasely guy's build.

11. That was great
Rahm probably does dream of throwing Republicans out the Oval Office window.

14. It's on right now but did I miss that scene you're talking about?
Edited on Sat Mar-07-09 11:50 PM by Joe the Liberal
The rock is on stage dancing with a few women and some guy, so has that scene your talking about past?

Absolutely fantastic!!! Laughed my ass off at that one. I'm really starting to like the Rock.
He's quite a performer and seems to have a great sense of humor. Or, at least, good writers.
