The Lyrics

And this is how conservatives do "You're So Vain" The song refers to Obama's activities during the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill in April-July 2010. Hat tip to Chalupa for second stanza
Well you walked onto the oil fouled beach
Like you were walking onto a yatch
Your knee strategically dipped to fetch a tarball
Your sleeves they were all rolled up
You had one eye on the prompter
You talked about kicking ass
And all the time Chrissie dreamed he was your partner
Dreamed he was your partner ... And
You're Hussein
You probably thought the spill was about you
You're Hussein (You're Hussein)
I bet you thought the spill was about you, din't you, din't you

Well, you had us several years ago
When we were still quite naive
And you said we would make such a pretty world
And that you would always lead
But you gave away the trust you earned
As we gaze at the oil sea
We had some dreams, now there's tar on the dolphins
Tar on the dolphins .. And
You're Hussein,
You probably thought the spill was about you
You're Hussein (You're Hussein)
I bet you thought the spill was about you, din't you, din't you

Well, you went out at lunch and played some roundball
And your team naturally won
Then you walked the FLOTUS into the West Room
To hear McCartney's Band on the Run
Well you're on the golf course most the time
And when you're not
You're at some fundraising gig or with the wife of your Ayres friend
Wife of your Ayres friend .. And
You're Hussein
You probably thought the spill was about you
You're Hussein ( You're Hussein!)
I bet you thought the spill was about you din't you, din't you?

You're Hussein
You probably thought the spill was about you
You're Hussein (Hussein!)
I bet you thought the spill was about you, din't you, din't you

Deepwater Horizon was caused by drilling, baby, drilling, so you conservatives were wrong again. And Barack Hussein Obama saved our economy from the Bush Depression and killed Osama bin Laden. You will have to deal with him until noon on January 20, 2017. You can't stop him.

Do I say sh*t when you liberals distort facts with your parodies, especially ones dealing with Bain Capital This is about Obama dithering on the oil spill clean up efforts from the outset in order to help out his union cronies. And, BTW it is ridiculous restrictions on domestic drilling onland or in much shallower waters that force us to drill in the mile deep waters of the Gulf to find energy

Yeah, it was all Obama's fault!

Nice piece of agit prop there, Tony. Where in the song do I insinuate that Obama is to blame for the oil spill? This is a a song about Obama preening and dithering during the oil spill, as could be inferred by the title of the OS, "You're So Vain" Then along comes Michael and tries to place blame for the disaster on Republicans, at which point I counter his point. Then you come along and insinuate that I'M the one that started the blame game. Sorry, but all the aggression is coming from your side
