The Lyrics

Just in case you were even considering a vote for JFK the lesser (that is, John F. Kerry), our president asks that you give him another chance to win you over.
I'm not the smartest person, there's many things you wish I didn't do

But I continue running; I only do those things protecting you

And so I have to say before you vote, my White House wants you to know

I had a reason for me, to change a corrupt regime

A reason Iraq should be new, 'cause I'm George W

Although I love my father, he did some things I lived with everyday

Like letting Saddam get away, and FBI divorce from CIA.

Afghanistan went well, Osama's through, and now I say this to you -

I had a reason for me, to change a corrupt regime

A reason Iraq should be new, 'cause I'm George W

I'm not a stupid person, I know when benefit outweighs the cost.

To keep you from insisting that I go, from saying now that we lost -

I had a reason for me, to listen to my VP

A reason Iraq should be new, 'cause I'm George W

I'll find those weapons at last, in Syria they were hid fast -

then clean up Iran, 'cause it's true - that I'm George W.

I think you got lower votes because people didn't agree with your political views. And that is total crap. I don't agree with your views either, but you still did a good job on this song. The one and only pacing problem I saw was on the second line of the third stanza. So I think the 2's and 3's you got on pacing were completely undeserved.

Thanks for the comment and the votes!!! Some clarification: 1. This is not a statement of my personal views, but an observation of how the president's views appear based on combined representation from the media and the White House. 2. For the record, I am a conservative, but not so extreme nor naive as a literal reading of this parody may suggest. Maybe "JFK the lesser" rubbed some the wrong way, but I'd like to think people are fair enough to read past the introduction. I'll give readers the benefit of the doubt - the pacing may have been misunderstood because I didn't bother to standardize the visual format when I pasted the original lyrics from a nonstandard site. 3. This is funnier if you imagine President Bush singing in that whiny, teen-angst voice all too common in Hoobastank's subgenre of pop. I think both conservatives and liberals, though for very different reasons, can laugh at that.

D.P. I found another conservitive, I'm sort of radical I'll admit, but the conservites need your help, we need to write more pro bush parodies, write more pro bush comments, Bush needs a voice, and we will find the WMDS do you think Saddam is going to put up a big sign:" WMDS this way". NO he would want to destroy our credibitly for destorying his regimem he hid the wepons so Bush would look bad, we may never get anything from him after interogation anyway since he's still hoping for the 70 virgins in heaven. (and if he doesn't do a 180 and repent he's gonna be in for a H*** of a surprise pardon the pun.). He had the WMDS he used them, everyone said he did until the elction came about and suddenly everyone developed amnesia (and I'm not ignorant I know republicans are prone to this kind on Amneisa too I just haven't seen it yet.)

Teresa is very funny! However, whoever gave me a 2 on pacing doesn't know what it means (and the layout was copied directly from K's lyric posting).

Teresa says thank you for finding her funny. And since the voting button is on holiday in Seville, I'll give you my numbers right here: Pacing- 4 How Funny- 5 (esp. imagining the Pres. singing in a falsetto, forget about high tenor) Overall- 4.5

His "sh*t" is usually funny. My issue is petty because I happen to like Hoobastank and demeaning the woman who won't be our first lady.He's a funny guy and I miss him.
