Actor Ron Butler Spoofs, Defends Obama in Song (Video)

Voters may be skeptical of President Obama's record in office so far, but a new musical spoof of the president is cutting the guy some slack.

Actor Ron Butler (who's appeared on television programs like "Boston Legal" and "How I Met Your Mother") gives a decent performance as Mr. Obama, who laments that despite perceptions, he as been "the very model of a U.S. president."

"We've pulled the country back from cataclysmic economic woes, we're fighting in Afghanistan and focused on our deadly foes," Butler sings to a fast-paced tune, backed up by a full chorus.

Watch the performance, and let us know what you think below.
