That's a single ANTIMATED character (not even a featured one) on an existing show. Again, quit different from an entire show dedicated to lampooning the POTUS like "That's my Bush"
You asserted that Matt and Trey wouldn't dare do a show about Obama because they'd be called racist. I pointed out that they have done a show that is satirical of Obama. No, it's not a show strictly dedicated to him, but it clearly shows that they don't shy away from him. I don't know why it matters that the show is animated. Everyone knows it is Obama, whether it's animated or not. The subject is still the same. All the other shows that do political satire have not shied away from Obama either.
I've watched those (four?) episodes in which the Obama character appears... the great majority of the appearances in those episodes are lampooning Obama supporters (Randy Marsh?), there really aren't any jokes about Obama himself. Unless "General Tso's Chicken!" or "We'll name the puppy Sparkles" are to be considered satire on Obama.
In fact, he's probably one the few characters that have appeared in SP that hasn't been generally made fun of.
