The Lyrics

This is a secondary sanitized version of how I really felt about Obama and his Redline cowardice, making himself, Congress, America, and the Western powers look bad while Russia's Putin takes the lead and laughs in our collective faces! It's an outrage. Obama is a weak leader at home and abroad!!!
The world’s waiting
to make right of a wrong
to crush the cynics saying:
“Assad’s grip is just too strong”

All the images on TV
Reports from here and there,
All of them proved true
But still debating weeks later

Barack is a coward, coward, coward
Barack is a coward, and fraud,
a lousy coward, and fraud
He drew a Redline from which he now recedes
A coward, coward, coward

Ran when push came to shove
(second thoughts and doubts)
Spread the guilt ‘round- remained untouched
(turned it all around)

Ran when push came to shove
(second thoughts and doubts)
Spread the guilt ‘round- remained untouched
(turned it all around)

HIT PAUSE…???

Turned it all around
(spread the guilt ‘round- remained untouched)
HIT PAUSE…???
THAT’S ODD…???

He knew Congress was leery,
The support was weak
UN help, was a no-go,
and Russian propaganda reeks

One day he‘s the Chief,
Then suddenly approval seeks
A surrender of arsenal,
Now, no accountability!

Barack is a coward, coward, coward
Barack is a coward, and fraud,
a lousy coward, and fraud
He drew a Redline from which he now recedes
A coward, coward, coward

Ran when push came to shove
(second thoughts and doubts)
Spread the guilt ‘round- remained untouched
(turned it all around)
(turned it all around)

HIT PAUSE…???

Turned it all around
(Spread the guilt ‘round- remained untouched)
JUST CAUSE?
HIT PAUSE…!!!

WTF???

Boo!
Talked much!
Boo!
(Closed doors)
Hush-hush!
Boo!

Barack is a coward, coward, coward
Barack is a coward, and fraud,
a lousy coward, and fraud
He drew a Redline from which he now recedes
A coward, coward, coward

Ran when push came to shove
(second thoughts and doubts)
Spread the guilt ‘round- remained untouched
(turned it all around)
(turned it all around)

HIT PAUSE…???

Turned it all around
(Spread the guilt ‘round- remain untouched)

He had

JUST CAUSE!!!

Turned it all around!

Turned it all around
(Spread the guilt ‘round-remained untouched)

JUST TALK!!!

[Syria gets a Red- out exit, US looks weak, undermined]

Filthy war is always the coward's first option and favorite entertainment. Really courageous people risk striving for peace, speaking softly, and carrying a big stick. Get off On the Dirty Dozen or Triumph of the Will from the comfort of your armchair.

If only he had been so weak and indecisive about the government health care takeover.

@T.R. - so you support the use of Sarin nerve gas on innocent civilians with no consequences whatsoever? Guess you also favor Iran getting a nuke to hit Israel and N Korea developing a 3-stage missile to hit the US Western seaboard? Weak people like you caused the invasion of Poland due to: 1) not stopping Germany from rearmament and repudiation of the Treaty of Versailles, 2) not marching back into the Ruhr and other parts of Germany to enforce the Armistice terms, 3) Not helping the corrupt and weak Weimar Govt. fight the Commie thugs in the street nor helping the German economy, and 4) relying on a piece of paper and appeasement to calm Hitler: "Peace in our time!" (a joke) Hitler proceeded as planned and 80 million people died. Weak liberals also have a lot to say but take little action. But it's nice to know that Israel's pre-emptive strike policy is now US policy with the drones and in the long-term makes sense to bomb Syria, Iran, N Korea, and all the asymmetrical warfare terrorists plaguing this world. Talk is cheap T.R. If you stood for any morals or values with this just cause you would support punitive action and support for the rebels towards regime change. How brave of you to be an armchair pacifist who lacks the guts and integrity to support what is right. And as stated elesewhere, even HITLER did NOT authorize use of Sarin, Soman, nor Tabun in 1945 when all was lost. Assad has gone further than Hitler... and you wanna preach to me about restraint and political games of musical UN chairs??? YOU are out of touch with reality. Btw, how is the US defense against another 9/11 after 12 years? Still as vunerable as ever and relies on spying and pre-emptive drone action against Al Qaida. Don't go into the military realm b/c I that is my domain. Obama as CIC is weak. Syria carries no military weight at all and so they run to Mother Russia for help- their arms supplier and partner in undermining the US and the West at every chance. A vote against a military strike against Syria is a vote for Assad and use of WMDs and the subsequent war crimes- the very same type that the US and Allies prosecuted Nazi Germany for!!! Or has the Holocaust escaped your mind with Zyclon B??? I also do not see you pushing for war crimes trials through the UN for the commanders that used the weapons and also those who ordered the use- Assad included. So much for your cheap shot comment- it got you nowhere.

Oh Gee... looks who's ranting now!!! I love the hypocrisy of T.R.'s support for DEM Pres Clinton when he sent US troops and military assets during the Kosovo Crisis to prevent genocide and also when Clinton authorized strikes against Iraq which did NOT have WMDs. But apparently T.R. thinks it's OK for Assad who leads a terror sponsor state with admitted WMDs to gas his own people wiht Sarin (a product of Nazi Germany). I presented a logical argument and T.R responds with a personal attack using name-calling. Gee, that's so intelligent and mature of you. Reported :)

I agree with T.R. and with Winston Churchill, who said "To jaw-jaw is always better than to war-war."
I consider the so-called parody a personal attack on the President of the United States, and I would report it for deletion. However, I will not engage in censorship, as Mr. Arndt so often does. Fortunately, I happened to read "F*ckward" before he had it, the associated comments, and the many 1's deleted.
As I recall, Mr. Arndt once recommended that Israel launch nuclear-tipped cruise missiles at Iran. He then probably regretted the pin-prick nature of the operation and called for reducing the Middle East to a "parking lot." He admits to being attracted to war.
It's way past time to stop using "parodies" to promote lunatic and dangerous agendas.

The same Winston Chuchill that went to war with Germany over Poland and then gave that nation away to Stalin at Yalta as well as all of E Europe? The same Churchill that wanted to use anthrax against Germany? As for the Dolphin SSK subs that have the modified launch tubes to fire Popeye Turbo nuke-tipped CMs at Iran... that's what they were modified for at the request of the Israeli Govt. Germany agreed and performed the mods. Gives Israel a nuclear triad against its enemies and of course they would use them if the Jewish State were to fall under serious attack. War is coming, is inevitable like death, taxes, and change. I do not feel the slightest bit of shame at pre-emptive strike. In this era of asymmetrical warfare and nuke proliferation mixed with global terrorism... it's a no-brainer. Thanks for your stated opinion BA... you should make that Baa like the poor lost sheep you are in a world of wolves. As for reporting a PA on the POTUS, go ahead- parodists are free to make fun of him as do the late night comedians and everyone else. Free speech. History lesson: "all evil needs to succeed is for good men to stand by and do nothing" which is what Obama, Congress, the UN, and Western Powers are doing. Righting a wrong is not a lunatic nor dangerous agenda- doing nothing in the face of unyielding evil is. But we know where this is leading. Only a fool goes back to "peace in our time" games of appeasement of a tyrant and petty political slaps on the wrist. Never works. It's a shame that small Israel has to go it alone with the US increasingly a superpower on paper and Britain's future King George having to lead a politically inept and castrated nation.

So, you feel it's OK for you to make a personal attack on the POTUS because it's free speech. I notice that you're very quick to have any negative comments about you removed. Shouldn't those comments be allowed to remain if you believe so much in free speech?
Rob Arndt - September 11, 2013 - Report this comment
Dear sockpuppet-X, you can make all the remarks you want, but breaking the rules of this site per the comment box for PERSONAL ATTACKS that have nothing to do with the actual parody will not be tolerated. Also sockpuppet-X, where have you been? Personal attacks on the Presidents (plural) and members of Congress, etc... have been going on for the entire time I've been here. There are far worse terms for the President than coward ;-)
Callmelennie - September 12, 2013 - Report this comment
Oh yeah, TR. Funny how certain types in our country are now discovering that criticizing the President can border on treason. It didn't seem to occur to any of them back in the days of Bush and the Iraq war, when it was OK to say that Bush was murdering Iraqi children so that his buddy Cheney could make billions in war reconstruction and in the oil markets. ..... And what about this interesting new twist on the First Amendment which demands that one person allow cheap personal attacks on his person by another, even on his own web page. That interpretation would have come as quite a surprise to the drafters of the First Amendment inasmuch as personal insults could lead to a situation where the attacker could be shot and killed in a duel
Rob Arndt - September 13, 2013 - Report this comment
CML, even worse have been incidents of men in uniform openly criticizing Bush as CIC which should have resulted in CMs, but didn't... even when talking operations with the press!!! My use of the word coward to describe Obama is not about his passionate discussions over the gassing of civilians in Syria being oversahdowed and undermined by Russia's Putin... but due to his foremeost mistake of not taking action on his own as CIC w/o Congressional approval when the evidence came pouring in. I feel that his Redline statement put him on the spot to act and he feared bad consequences so turned to Congress not really to consult them but transfer that Redline threat over to others including the UN. If Britain had not balked then he could have acted quickly to get the British, French, Saudis and some ME nations like Qatar, and UAE as well as possible Turkey to form a valid coalition and ordered the destroyers and arriving CVN to fire and stay within a few days of missile launches and B-2 attacks on tactical and strategic Syrian targets. The Syria AF has no real ability to counter the B-2s and carrier a/c. Even B-52H a/c have added countermeasures, massive electronic upgrades and stand-off ALCM launch capabilities. You know that there are also US subs in the Med and Atlantic that can launch Tomahawks with ease. As for boots on the ground... so what? During OIF, foreign troops were not allowed into Iraq that were not part of the coalition. Germany sent GSG-9 in to guard buisnessmen and neither the US nor the Iraqi Army could do anything against them. KSK is also reputed to have gone in untouched. If Germany could do that with a small amount of troops, the USMC and US Army can do much more. Assad would be fighting on multiple fronts with all his heavy weapons destroyed and mass defections. Any WMD further use could result in tactical nuke retaliation. So why fear anything Syrian at all? The regime is in danger of collapse with rebels using primitive small arms, improvised AFVs, and largely sectarian volunteers! Get real folks.

And one, five, ten years later, after the Mission Accomplished banner is raised and our Tuskegee airman lands triumphantly on the deck of a U.S. carrier, then what, Arndt? Tell us how a country like Syria, riven with sectarianism and with no institutions of democratic self-governance and already a destination for Al Qaeda will function without the U.S. spilling its blood and treasure once again? Explain the geopolitical impact on the Middle East and the rest of the world? Enlighten us about the long-term effect on our economy. You play your exciting tactical war games mentally, but so far you have failed to think strategically. So please teach us what nobody else can: What happens on The Day After? No Biblical references, please.
Chester Arnaud - September 13, 2013 - Report this comment
Let me help you focus your strategic thinking, Arndt. Since 9-11, we have seen our privacy in domestic communications, airport inspection, etc., diminish and degrade. Will we effectively live in a police state after a Syrian invasion, which is sure to annoy Hezbollah and other Islamist terror groups, Iran, the Shiite majority in Iraq (a sterling example of how our might makes right), and Lebanon? Will our ally Jordan be completely overwhelmed by Syrian refugees? We have begun to arm the "Free Syrian Army." Is that analagous to our arming the Afghanistan mujadaheen in their (successful) battle against Russian invasion, only to see our weapons eventually turned against us? Please consider these questions while you plan on deploying the toys of war which so engage your fervid imagination.

@CA... WHY ask me a Q? that even the Pentagon cannot answer nor the CIA??? The entire region is unstable at ANY time given the presence of Israel and its hostile neighbors. Yet Israel can defend itself. But what of innocent civilians in Syria which is the real Q? Should Assad be left to use WMDs like Sarin against his people and with no consequences coming from the US, the West, and UN... just making things worse as Iran, Hezbollah, and every terror sponsor state on earth is given the thumbs-up to make and distribute WMDs either possessed or in the pipeline? The US is already perceived as weak with the failed wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Nobody cares about Saddam and Bin Laden killed as the region is increasing MORE unstable and subject to Islamic radicalism. One way or another that entire region is gonna go to war and I DON'T have to cite the Bible which is running parallel to the military journals and Intel agencies that project the same conclusions for the 2015-2020 timeframe. We are in 2013 which puts us dangerously close to this next WW. And it doesn't matter WHO starts it. I'm sorry that you think you know the strategic outcome better than those in uniform and those spying via SAT & DRONE or are paid to analyze such things. A hint for you since I grew up with the Intel people- Intel projections walk a fine line between perception and deception; in fact, no one can predict the unexpected which can change world events in a single day like Sarajevo pre-WW1 and Pearl Harbor and 9/11 as examples. The world knows the US political and military MOs and is already undermining us on a global scale whether at the UN with Russia or China or on the ground all over the world's "hot spots." Again, wake up from your left-wing, liberal, self-induced coma ;-)

Post-stalking on a music parody site TMW? How pathetic. Btw, anyone that boasts of high intelligence and of strong convictions... and yet doesn't have the guts nor balls to print their own name (hiding under false S/Ns)... doesn't impress me. Where are your parodies? And political parodies are posted here all the time, esp. in election years. FYI (but as a disgruntled vet with multiple aliases you already know that)! Stop wasting your time.
