No! It's really not funny! I have a sense of humour, and it's not funny! The language is crude, the implications are terrible, and Obama has enough bad publicity as it is! Please add a "No" option to the poll!

The extreme anger you show over a trival video doesn't give the impression that you have a sense of humor.  How is this bad publicity?  Are people not going to vote for him, because they think he worships the devil?  I think you need to vote "No and how dare you insult the liberal Messiah", due to your crazy devotion you just showed towards Obama.

I find that generalization disturbing, and duckling does have a sense of humor.

You guys need to relax.  The poll itself is a joke.

Says who? Watch comendy central.  The only comedian who don't tell offensive jokes is Jeff Foxworthy.

Just cussing add a "No" option. Not everyone shares your sense of humour, and you can't just argue yours into everyone.

If you don't like the video, then don't watch it.  It seemed to work with your TV.

I left "No" out of the poll as a joke.  To me, it humorous to immagin Obama worshipers unable to vote "no" when they don't find any joke involving Obama funny.  I am guessing you are one of these people based on you saying, "Obama has enough bad publicity as it is!"

He got bad press because of biased media which made it seem like he was trying to kill people.

A) This video wasn't on any major new source, so to say that Youtube is bias is saying the Ameican people are bias.
B)The bias media was the reason he became president.

The biased media are what created the mindset which led to this, as for his getting elected, in case you didn't notice the media was trying to cut him off everywhere possible.

I saw the video, thought it was funny and that was it. It's just a funny video and I saw humour much better than simple sound effects with made up subtitles. Hey, a couple of years ago I received a video by email with almost the same thing done by Winnie the Pooh! This video is just silly and not particularly original. But that's no reason to be offended by it.

A sign of an healthy democratic system is the existence, among other (more important) things, of humour targeted to the ones in places of power.

I try to see humour as what it pretends to be: from simple plain jokes that put the leaders in roles that seem that they have only one brain cell to the more intelligent jokes that make us both laugh and wonder if our leader's decision was the most correct one in a certain subject.

Everyone has the right to disagree with something. And they have the right to choose not to see it. But that doesn't mean that they have the right to forbid everyone else to see it. I think that there should exist limits to the freedom of speech when other rights are affected.

If you really want to discuss about Obama or the US, allow me to suggest that you post on Thoughts on current administration (of the country(s)).

Ert made a valid point, and I can respect that, however, in my eyes this borders on slander, and I find calling anyone a devil worshipper (except those who actually are) highly inappropriate.

By the way sorry about the excessively long name.
