WATCH > Obama 2012 Campaign Spoof: Funny or Cruel?

Ever wonder what Obama's re-election campaign will look like for 2012? Well, ponder no further. Because this is the closest thing to the real deal as it's going to get.

Sketch group LandlineTV teams up with The Final Edition, a parody news site similar to The Onion, to bring us a political spoof that puts all other political spoofs to shame.

And don't even fret about ordering new Obama shirts. All you have to do is Sharpee in "Less" before "Hope" and "No" before "Change."

No, but seriously: the video's definitely funny. But is it also a little bit cruel? You be the judge.

    I don't understand the choices. Cruel? The only thing cruel is having to listen to the same rhetoric every time he gets on TV. He doesn't seem to notice that when he says one thing and then does the opposite that people actually notice it.

    Maybe sad would be the better word. Sad that he has not been able to accomplish one thing that makes America stronger or better. Sad that he has the most divisive administration in history. Dividing people into poor and rich, white and black, illegal and illegal opponents, and any other group he can stick you in. As long as he can keep people fighting over their differences, he can do whatever he wants while we are distracted.

    Close gitmo? nope.
    Get us out of war? nope.
    Started new wars and increased fighting in existing wars. Yes.
    Lower health care costs? Nope,
    Increased insurance costs. Yep.
    Keep our health care plans and doctors? Nope. Insurance companies are dropping policies. Doctors are dropping patients.
    Cut Bush Tax Cuts. Nope. Extended them.
    Cut the unemployment rate. Nope. went from 5 to 9 percent.
    Created jobs. Nope. Employers are scared to hire anyone because of his policies.

    Not that I am complaining about him following Bush policies for the most part. The only time he has been successful is when...

The only difference in the Bush presidency and Obama's is that the press supports Obama and the loons on the left aren't protesting his war policy because he is one of them.

    Acturally, it's neither funny or cruel. There just wasn't a third choice (neither). The video just spoke the truth. But, I guess it could be 'cruel' because what O'bummer has done has been very cruel to us Americans, turning this country into a socielist state. With O'bummer there has been NO HOPE and NO CHANGE, and that's the truth.

    Funny and it's also nice to see truth in advertising for a change. We're dealing with a lying do nothing for the country President and this gets the message across in a way that everyone can understand.

    These guys really did a good job on this . . . It was as if someone did their homework or someone must have been paying attention . . . It is not cruel in any manner to spoof and poke fun at a political leader . . . I really don't think that "Cruel" should have been used as a choice here . . .

    No, that graphic gets it all wrong. Obama is no friend to marijuana users.

    I *do* smoke dope, and I hate that Obama has not even kept his promise to have the federal government stop raiding medical cannabis dispensaries, let alone ended the unconstitutional "War on Drugs".

    In fact he has proposed *increased* Drug War funding, in blatant contradiction to his public comments that there should be more focus on treatment.

    The cruel part is being carried into financial ruin by the majority of Americans who can't bother to look at history, and then look at Obama's proposals.
    Carter Mk. II is pretty much spot on for what I said he'd be.
