From the New York Times website:

The audience, which was nearly entirely white, watched with befuddlement as the impersonator told them to look into the future to see what the Obamas will look like when they are retired. An image of a feuding husband and wife, from the TV show “Sanford and Son,” was flashed on screens in the ballroom.

From tomorrow's New York Times:

A report yesterday on The Caucus blog, "'Obama' Stuns Crowd at Republican Event," incorrectly identified two individuals from a 1970s situation comedy whose photograph was displayed Saturday during a presentation at the Republican Leadership Conference. The individuals depicted, comedian Redd Foxx and veteran actor LaWanda Page, portrayed a widower and his sister-in-law, Esther, not a married couple. The Times regrets the error.
