From The New York Times:
Disney officials declined to say how much it cost to build an Obama. They have cloaked the project with a blanket of secrecy befitting the Secret Service, permitting this reporter to be the only journalist thus far to view the figure up close but allowing only a Disney photographer to take its picture.


The Obama figure is the result of attention to minute details by Disney sculptors, animators, engineers and even anatomists who pored over presidential photographs and video of him and then drew on the latest advances in robotic technology. Thus the audio-animatronic Obama purses its lips to pronounce its b’s and p’s in a way frighteningly evocative of the real one, and raises its hands, open-palmed, while shrugging its shoulders, in a way that can only be described as Obamaesque.
Reason Number 5,283,625 why the United States is the greatest nation on Earth:

The Obamatron.

You guys have to make a robot copy of your President - Gordon Brown was "born" that way, evidently.

Wasn't there a Simpsons episode where they went to the hall of presidents and Abe Lincoln started to rap? I'd like to see Robobama do that.
