The Lyrics

As the US President is on the road stumping to revive any version of Medical Reform, I wonder if his initials stand for Bulldogging Health Overhaul. Its passage could be political suicide for Congressional Democrats in 2010 and him in 2012. That does not deter him as he mimics the idealistic hero in TOS.
To scheme the unpassable scheme
To fight the Conservative foe
To scare (we can't wait for tomorrow)
To run where Progressives were slow

The Right is indictably wrong
I am better far than they are
To try when my eyes are too bleary
To read one more speech from afar [1]

This is my quest
To follow that god
No matter how hope changed [2]
No matter how flawed

To fight 'gainst the Right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march
Out to sell what are lemonly laws [3]

To be willing to give
Balking DINO's the shiv [4]
To be willing to lie
So that "government -- trust us" may live

And I know if I'll only push through
In this glorious quest
That I'm smart to have greased many palms
When I'm made to take rest [5]

And health care will be better for this
That one man, feathers covered with tar
Still strove, despite cast votes of Congress
To breach the unbreachable bar
[1] Teleprompters
[2] A twist on his campaign slogan
[3] A play on Dan Rather's recent remark about selling watermelons
[4] Democrats in name only, i.e., voting "nay"
[5] Not re-elected

There should be a Broadway musical for this one! Ditto on OMR and Mark's comments! The Impossible Dream for an Impassable Scheme! I'm imagining the US Pres singing this type of number! Great work with this polit-ody, Barry! 555.

Thanks, all. @ CMM: I think that the Prez & First Lady would not fly AF1 to NY on a date for this musical!
@ TJC: LOL -- but the Congress is trying to Rahm this into The People's throats and other orifices.
@ Fg: The dictionary said "lemony" but if OS had "heavenly", why not?
@ MS: It was not Wednesday but Thursday at 8:19 a.m. EST; the editors had been up unusually early!
