Ain't it good
Beat the Right
So we are with You
The news is playin'
Pelosi's sayin's and Thine
(Enshrine your line, so fine)
Class me, you
By race and gender
"Lord's" appeal: Indis-creet big spender
Dutiful: your regime, we hold divine
B'rack me gently
B'rack is holy
Tax us, sleazy
Take our dough
'Cause we have never been B'racked like this before
Stick it gently
Stick it slowly
Seems so easy
Don't you know
That socialism has never worked before?
Folks were starvin':
Control the goods and make folks lazy
Resources, graced; but life: debased and poor 
(They're poor; endure; no cure)
Ain't ours no more
You print fake money
And take them o'er
Rules are made: decree, by the Czars above
Crock me gently
Flock me slowly
The Constitution's been something to ignore
And maybe, maybe
B'rack will squeeze thee 
'Cause he "knows"
Though he has never been to Med School before
Knock me gently
Shock me slowly
'Cause my butt's never been shoved like this before
Ain't no good
This is blight!
That, selling myth, he --
-- Fills with fright 
Rules us wholly
Power, seize he
Don't you know ---
That for forever, we're in debt evermore
Rob you gently
Rob you slowly
Nap so easy;
You don't know:
That you owe $38,000; next day, more! 
 The Soviet Union was far richer in valuable natural resources than the United States; specifically oil, gold, diamonds, and platinum, and was more than twice as large, with huge areas of arable land, yet the 1970 per-capita gross domestic product of the US of about $5,115 was almost triple that of the USSR's $1,800.00. And despite being one of the world's largest producers of wheat, inefficient distribution systems and zero-incentive farmers at times forced it to import wheat from Canada. (The US wisely refused to help the Kremlin deceive its people as to the disastrous results of its system.)
 In a Town Hall video clip shown on last week's Daily Show, it went something like this:
Q: "You say that this is not a Government takeover of health care. But how can a private company compete against the Government?"
obamA: (pauses condensed) "Well, they can... you have, say, FedEx™ and UPS™, and they're both doing very well. It's uh, .. the Post Office that has all the problems."
Eggs-ACT-ly! Thank you for making our point for us, Mr. President. (The one time I won't argue with the Pres.)
 Since his inauguration, Obama's approval rating has fallen at a rather steady pace, and his disapproval rating has climbed at a more dramatic pace. (See outro for references.) For example, the Rasmussen poll shows approval dropping from 65% to 48% (now a minority), a 26% drop in only seven months; and disapproval rising from 30% to 52% (a majority), an increase of 73% in number of persons disapproving.  For those with "strong feelings", Rasmussen shows 31% strongly approve; 40% strongly disapprove, giving the Pres a "Presidential Approval Index", in their terms, of -9%, a reversal from his +12% rating at inauguration.
Gallup is "slightly" more favorable to the President, with a 50-49% approve/disapprove (meaningless, as well within the margin of error), but is more dramatic in the growth of disapproval, showing the percentage who disapprove more than *tripling* - up 3.5x, actually.
Pollster.com also shows the Pres barely hanging on to an approval majority (50.7% as submitted Tuesday) , but with the disapproval rating doubling. Far be it from TT to commit "extrapolation error", but if the disapproval continues to double every seven months, by April 2011, 360% of the public will disapprove. :)
 As of the second this was written, each US citizen's share of the national debt was slightly over $38,000.00, and growing at the rate of over $12 per day = $4,380 per year. Many previous administrations and Congresses have contributed to this disaster since the creation of the money-printing Federal Reserve Board by Democratic President Woodrow Wilson in 1913, but the President proposes to increase it drastically. Isn't it nice to know that your newborn baby is already deeply in debt -- bankrupt, in fact -- and that the President intends for her burden to grow much more rapidly?
"...the debt doubled during the George W. Bush presidency, and is projected to double again under the Obama presidency...."
So, *Obama* is Bush's third term? Who knew?!
(W. took eight years to double the debt, some of it 9/11-related; O. is expected to double it in only six years, i. e., by 2015, meaning that in eight years, it would be more than 2.5 times as high as when he took office. Well, he *did* promise to outdo Bush....) [5a]
"... to nearly 100% of GDP by 2010 and remain at that level thereafter."
In other words, under Obama, our national debt will be equal to our entire national annual production (income), and stay that way forever. Now, *that* is a change you can believe in.
 Drop from 65% to 48% = drop of 17 percentage *points*. 17/65 = 26+ percent. In other words, in January, of every 100 polled, 65 approved. Now, 48 approve. So 17 fewer people approved, meaning 26% fewer people approve now than then. Same with disapproval. Yes, percentages can be tricky, but TT is always here to help. E. g.:
[5a] Double in six years = compounded annual growth rate of about 12.25%, which in eight years compounds to about 252 % of the base figure. So 10 trillion dollars of debt becomes 25.2 trillion. Yippee.
A SPECIAL MESSAGE TO OUR FRIENDS ON THE LEFT:
For those on the Left, the footnotes above consist of what are known to the rest of the world as "facts". They are what reasonable people use for debate instead of name-calling. Just thought you'd like to know.
(The economic data weren't sourced to avoid increasing the burdensome fooTTnotes. 'Sides, no one reads them anyway. Did you know that Obama's birth certificate proves that he's actually a Martian? You can search the data easily enough, should you doubt *them*. (tuvm, fg ;)
