Obama, Biden Puppets Kick 2010 Out the Door (Video)
January 1, 2011
(ChattahBox Political News)—The folks at JibJab Media provides us with an hilarious review of 2010, brought to us by President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, as singing puppets. As part of JibJab’s 2010 Year in Review, the video called, “So Long To Ya, 2010,” depicts Obama and Biden lamenting, “We arrived in ’09 on a rainbow of hope, but 2010 blew it all up in smoke. From tea party rallies to banks going broke, so long to yah 2010.”
Of course, 2010 wasn’t all bad. We did see the end of the discriminatory policy of “Don’t ask, don’t tell,” and the official end of combat operations in Iraq. But yes, we also saw escalating unemployment, home foreclosures and a tacky reality TV show starring the divisive former half-term governor Sarah Palin and her family.
JibJab describes its year-end video, as a year of “regret.”
“This year we’ve turned Obama and Biden into puppets to sing a duet of regret. After a grueling year of Wikileaks and oil spills, join our Oval Officers in kicking off 2011 by kicking 2010 out the door!”
Throughout all of the ups and downs of 2010, Joe Biden’s whispered remark caught on a hot microphone, expressing his excitement to the President over the signing of the historic health care reform bill into law, stands out.
The Obama-Biden puppets memorialized that moment in song.
“We’ve got no jobs despite all my spending. We passed healthcare, they shouted repeal. So Joe goes on national TV and says, ‘It’s a real big fu**ing deal!”
Towards the end of the musical litany of calamities, the Obama puppet is jonesing for a smoke.
“Just give me a damn cigarette!”
The year 2011 has to be better. Right?
