NEW York Post : “Saturday Night Live” used inner monologues to explore President Obama’s tepid showing in Wednesday’s debate. The show-opening debate spoof showed Obama (Jay Pharoah) considering last-minute gift ideas for wife Michelle and struggling with the Denver altitude during his time at the podium, while Republican challenger Mitt Romney (Jason Sudeikis) blabbed about his plans for economic recovery.
Obama considers using Secret Service to distract the missus while he buys her something at the hotel gift shop. Denver Broncos sweatshirt? Bath robes? ‘World’s greatest mom’ coffee mug?
The debate continues with Romney outlining his 20th element for economic growth, causing moderator Jim Lehrer (“SNL” alum Chris Parnell) to ask Romney to wrap up his comments.
