New Orleans: An actor impersonating President
Barack Obama mocked the Republican presidential hopefuls and
made jokes about the real president`s biracial roots to a room
full of conservative activists.
The Republican Leadership Conference turned the podium
over to impersonator Reggie Brown, who drew raucous applause
from the audience when he projected lewd photos of disgraced
and resigned Democratic Rep Anthony Weiner yesterday.
Brown returned to Weiner when describing former House
Speaker Newt Gingrich`s campaign: "His supporters are dropping
faster than Anthony Weiner`s pants."
The room grew more uncomfortable as Brown turned to the
Republican candidates who are looking to make Obama a one-term
Brown took a shot at former Minnesota Gov Tim Pawlenty,
who missed the conference because "he`s having his foot
surgically removed from his mouth."
"Don`t worry: it`s covered under Obamneycare. Along with
spinal transplants," Brown said.
Pawlenty has struggled this week after previewing his
criticism of Romney`s health care overhaul in Massachusetts
that was a model for Obama`s national plan.
Pawlenty first called it "Obamneycare," a hybrid of
Romneycare and Obamacare. But when given the shot to use the
term while sharing the stage Monday night with Romney in a
candidates` debate, he balked.
