This Xtranormal video compares President Barack Obama’s decision to bomb Libya with President Bush’s invasion of Iraq in 2003. With close to 150,000 youtube views since it was loaded four days ago, the argument seems to have struck a chord. Of course, it’s a fairly lopsided debate.
The Bush defender in the video is presented as rational and well-informed while his liberal co-worker is pretty dim, brushing aside his objections by noting, “I don’t care. Obama is cool and awesome. His bracket picks were outstanding too,” and declaring that she gets all her news from Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.
The cartoon animation and the robotic delivery typical of Xtranormal has a distancing effect, but it also prevents the discussion from becoming too strident. President Obama still has an approval rating over 70% among Democrats, many of whom hated his predecessor and voted for Obama because of the Iraq war. What are those people thinking now?
