Barack Obama was the President of the United States of America in the late 2000s. He was making a publicized speech on the recession when he was, like everyone else on Earth, turned into a copy of the Master before being returned to normal with the rest of the human race. (DW: The End of Time)
It is unknown whether the Obama-Master's "deletion" of his financial plan was literal, or just for comic effect.
Barack Obama (b. 1961) is the current President of the United States. A former United States Senator from Illinois, Obama was the first African-American to be elected President of the United States. Obama took office on January 20, 2009, becoming the 44th President of the United States.
During a 2008 fund-raising dinner, Obama remarked to Sesame Workshop co-founder Joan Ganz Cooney that he "used to watch Sesame Street when [he] was babysitting [his] sister." He is Caroll Spinney's ninth cousin, twice removed.
On April 12, 2009, President Obama hosted the annual White House Easter Egg Roll on the lawn of The White House. The president treated the crowd to a reading of Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are; while other readers included first lady Michelle Obama and actors James Cromwell and Daniel Stern. Walk-around versions of Elmo and Abby Cadabby from Sesame Street, and Sid from Sid the Science Kid were in attendance at the event along with other PBS Kids characters.
President Obama recorded a video message for the 2009 Sesame Workshop Benefit Gala congratulating and thanking Sesame Workshop for their 40 years of educating America's youth.
It is my honor and privilege, as a parent and as president, to say on this wonderful occasion that this video is brought to you by the number 40. I'm pleased to join all of you in supporting and celebrating this program, as someone who remembers fondly watching Sesame Street with my younger sister and as a parent of two girls who learned a great deal while spending time with Elmo and Big Bird and all of their pals. Sesame Street has over the course of four decades managed to remain, at once relevant in changing times, timeless in the values that it instills in our children. In fact, there are many adults who could stand to learn again the lessons that Sesame Street offers: lessons of compassion, and kindness and respect for our differences. The world is a better place for the world you create on 'Sesame Street,' a world that enriches our children's minds and hearts each and every day.
The President again acknowledged Sesame Street’s 40th Anniversary in a message recorded for A Capitol Fourth.
Barack Obama is the forty-fourth president of the United States of America. At the Presidential Inauguration a car turned up with another Barack Obama. After Spider-Man appeared and a few personal questions were asked, it was discovered that the other Obama was an impostor since he did not know how to answer such questions. The impostor turned out to be none other than the Chameleon. Spider-Man was able to subdue the Chameleon and Obama thanked Spider-Man.

In real life, President Obama is a notorious fan of Spider-Man. Possibly this was what inspired such an encounter.
