MAD Magazine vs. Mad Man Obama

MAD Magazine takes potshots at Barack Obama's TelePrompter dependence, middle name, birth place, and former pastor in a new article, "How Barack Obama stacks up to the other 42 presidents."

While George Washington's "head was carved into Mt. Rushmore, Obama's head was sculpted into a Chia Pet," the article starts.

John Adams "got lost on his way to go live in the White House. Obama successfully reached the White House, but has been lost ever since."

"Before [Andrew] Jackson, there had never been a president born west of the Appalachian Mountains. Before Obama, there had never been a president born … wherever it was he was born."

About James Madison, Mad wrote, "Madison's wife introduced ice cream to the White House. Obama's wife introduced a vegetable garden. Seriously? Come on ... "

Obama's campaign slogan of "Yes We Can" also was in the bull's-eye: About John Tyler, Mad said, "The campaign phrase 'Tippecanoe and Tyler Too' is every bit as vague and irrelevant as 'Yes We Can.'"

The magazine had no qualms suggesting that Obama will not win re-election. About Grover Cleveland was this: "Cleveland is the only president to serve two non-consecutive terms. There's no certainty Obama will even want to run in 2016."

About Franklin Delano Roosevelt: "FDR stood up to Germany and Japan. Obama can't even stand up to Mitch McConnell.

About Millard Fillmore, Mad joked, "While in Europe, Fillmore had an audience with Pope Pius IX. Obama, meanwhile, was in the audience during Jeremiah Wright's tirades."

George H.W. Bush: "Bush paved the way for his oldest son to become President. At this rate, Obama's paving the way for another Bush son to become President."

Gerald Ford: "Ford declared that 'our long national nightmare is over.' Obama would never say that, knowing our current nightmare still has several years to go."

Jimmy Carter: "Carter won the Nobel Peace Prize for his work with Habitat for Humanity. Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize because ... uhhhh ... help us out here."

On Martin Van Buren: "Van Buren was the first president to be born an American citizen. Obama was the first president to bust his lip open playing a pickup game of basketball."

On Benjamin Harrison: "Harrison was considered one of the best extemporaneous speakers of his day. Obama is considered one of the best Teleprompter readers of his day."

On Herbert Hoover: "As we go to press, angry poor people have not yet set up 'Obamavilles.'"
