Parody Song Title:
"Both Sides Now (US Left- And Right-Wing Follow-Up)"
Pols propose for free health care
Pull bucks from a**hole, or thin air
And better housing ev'rywhere
They talk so loud that way
But now, the deficit's a ton
More pain; tax flow from ev'ryone
So many things they said'd be done
Dis'vowed, and walked away
I've looked at pols from both sides now
From Left and Right, and still, somehow
It's their delusions, I recall
With honor, not endowed
Bush: "Iraq will soon be free"
"It might take one month; maybe three"
"We'll export our democracy"
I heard, above: him say
But now, it's end of Dubya's show
Still in Iraq; When will we go?
Timetable, dare? Both sides don't know
Just give us more dismay
I've looked at Gov from both sides now
Don't give, but take, while breaking vow
With vague allusions, they enthrall
I really don't trust Gov
B. Obama thrilled the crowd
He said that Gitmo: not allowed!
Flip-flop, seems; to Saudi, bowed
"Believe for life"; now, sway
And now, Obama's acting strange
Speak Arab? Great! But gay? Mind changed! 
His Cab'net's tax forms, rearranged
I pay mine each payday
I've looked at strife from both sides now
From Left and Right, they fight, and how!
Don't find solutions; they just brawl
I really don't like them
 The Daily Show of 14 May 2009 had a video clip from 10 Feb 2008 of Candidate Obama supporting the retention of valuable military personnel regardless of gender preference... followed by a clip from that (show's) day of CNN reporting that the White House has confirmed that it will *not* interfere in the firing of Dan Choi, a graduate of the West Point military academy and an Iraq War veteran *fluent in Arabic*, who was discharged after coming out as gay.
As Jon Stewart pointed out, what good is it if you waterboard someone until they finally talk, but all they can talk is Arabic, and you've fired the only Arabic speaker in the area for being gay? Sounds like a waste of perfectly good torture. (that last statement, was, of course, facetious in all regards, but not nearly as sick as the situation itself). Obama's worshipers must be disillusioned. I'm not one of them, but I too am disappointed: Candidate Obama was right on this issue then, and President Obama is wrong now. (A flip-flopper par Kerry-lence!) Sigh... more of the same.
