The Lyrics

We had his daddy....didn't go so well. Then we had his brother.....that definitely did NOT go well.....so now they want another Bush in the White House..... ARE WE THAT INCREDIBLY STUPID????
Now, you're gonna' hear a story 'bout a man named Jeb
and just like his brother, wants to turn the country "red"
When asked about Iraq, what he said just wasn't cool,
And that made him sound like a babbling fool
(War that is.....for black gold....in the Middle East)


Well the next thing you know, Jeb's got a billionaire
To hell with the laws, Jeb doesn't even care!
He said "Hilary Clinton is the one I gotta' beat"
So he got a Super-Pac and he went to Wall Street
(Big-Banks, that is....CEO's....hedge-fund managers)


By now we've all had quite enough of Jeb and all his kin
But there's still lots of crazy folks who'd like to vote him in
They want another four years of a Bush Catastrophe
And they will make us victims of their own stupidity

(Republican, that is......
Go to hell.....
Get your head examined!
Y'all go and vote now, ya hear?)

Not as funny as the Obama Administration, 1s. Hillary voted for Iraq War too 8-))

Very funny. Nice use of the original song. Like the line about "war for big oil". I hope that's the truth. What else is there in that Allah-forsaken part of the world worth fighting for? Problem is, when you fight for oil, you tend to set a lot of it on fire. Write your next satire about Hillary Clinton. You'll get a lot more comments.

Don't agree with you, but 4s for the tune

Nice to know that you judge a man by his father and brother. Should we judge Hillary according to her husband?
Jeff (the author) - June 11, 2015 - Report this comment
Yes we should! As I recall the Clinton years were good. He left office with a budget surplus, which Dubya squandered in Iraq, creating the biggest mess in US history. Sure....why not...let's do it again! (PS: 3/4 of Jeb's campaign staff is George's old gang. You righties need to read the facts before you go off)

Jeff, you are seriously misjudging the right-wingers. First of all, as their beloved St. Ronald of Bel Air put it, "Facts are stupid things." Second of all, you want them to READ? There's an old joke. Republican 1: "Our people should read more." Republican 2: "If our people read more, they wouldn't be our people for much longer."

Moronic, nonsensical Dimowit illogical reactionism. And the three left-leaning stooges support it.

Besides being on target politically and logically, this excellent parody retains the hick tone of the original and subtly imputes it to Jeb (a supreme hillbilly name). Barb is right not to want another of her after-births in the White House.

If you want a third term for Obama's ineffectial foreign and domestic policies, vote Hillary Clinton.

I'm guessing all the 1 scores were from viewers who don't like the lyricist's politics. I lean right, but this was cleverly written.

"I'm Jeb Bush and I disapprove of this message" (endorsed by the Campaign for Fear and Continuous Warmongering and the Society of False Promises)!
