People in Japan Love Obama

September 1, 2008

Since Senator Obama didn’t give the Japanese press any face time during the Democratic National Convention, one TV station got an Obama impersonator to give a speech about what kind of relations he would want to have with Japan, and why he didn’t choose Hillary as his running mate.

People in Japan love Obama. So if you find this video offensive for any reason, just know that it was made with the best of intentions, and he doesn’t say anything racist. He does make a silly joke: "If I become president and Fukuda remains prime minister, I would like us to call each other Fuku-chan and Oba-chan."
