The Lyrics

Chi-Town boy, he learned this trick quite early
How to get ahead on just his style
A rich white man
Said he won’t have to worry
“We’ve got your whole life mapped out” as he smiled

Late at night when nagging doubts assail
He might try to quell his secret fears with vice
But he knows coke can only help him fail
So he tries a different tact, on sage advice

So he starts off small to see if he can do it
Applying for a foreign student loan
And pretty soon it gets to be a habit
It’s a handy skill that he has come to hone

We can’t dodge his flying lies
And his smirk is no disguise
I hope by now we’ve realized
There ain’t no way to dodge his flying lies

On the poorer side of town he starts his journey
By “organizing” and some other things
A Harvard law Prof., not active attorney
But it trained him for the bull he likes to sling

He’d like to take up arms in revolution
He finds out, as a plan, this just won’t fly
He wonders how he can kick start evolution
Then it comes to him he’ll start it with a lie

We can’t dodge his flying lies
“Hope and Change” was a thin disguise
I hope by now we’ve realized
There ain’t no way to dodge his flying lies

He gets up and pours himself a cold one
And starts to plan his next duplicity
Healthcare’s in sight, it’s got to be a bold one
It’s gonna’ tax his tongues agility

He wonders if his new plan’s just too crazy
He thinks the folks might not be fooled this time
Are they really dumb or are they merely lazy
It doesn’t matter to a man that’s slime

My, oh my you sure knew what you were doing
You set us up so well, it’s plain to see
Hell, you even won the case that we were suing
The Roberts rule was as shocking as could be

We can’t dodge your flying lies
“Keep your plan” was a great disguise
I hope by now we’ve realized
There ain’t no way to dodge your flying lies
There ain’t no way to dodge your flying lies
Mister, we can’t dodge your flying lies

Employs all the tiresome, slanderous fiction to spew hysterical hatred for the satisfaction of the righty nuts who infest the dark corners of this site. A couple of this ilk have yet to be heard from. Let the torrent of 5s begin to counter my 1s.

Thank you ho, but if you don't love this sort of thing, why is it you never encourage the more inocuous parodies. I do believe you secretly love when Obama gets slammed. Don't worry there's still plenty of truth to get out.

As one of the unheard from members of Onslaught's ilk, I am foot-stampingly indignant at Ho's vile, ilk-considered, ilk-ophobic slur. For one thing our numbers are transcending the bound of ilk-hood. A new CNN poll shows that 53% of Americans believe that Obama is not a trustworthy. That's not an ilk, that's a super-ilk; that's a mega-ilk, if you will (but of course, you won't) And yet, Ho, you still believe that your disconnected string of insults somehow proves that we're an extreme minority.

Lennie is just proving once again that he's a racist good ol' boy who votes right-of-right. Ted Cruz is his hero. I mean, really- using stats that change all the time to slam Obama once again? Many past Presidents, Democratic and Republican, have had low periods during their Administrations. Stats can be manipulated. Obama's record is clear: he won fairly twice by wide margins, people wanted healthcare reform as a priority for his Admin, he bailed out GM and they are doing great, he cleaned up much of GWB's catastrophe of financial ruin he inherited from 8 years of incompetence, and we are in recovery as promised even if it is small recovery. Gas is pretty even too below $4/gal. So WHY do you keep up this failed crusade to verbally villify one of the greatest Presidents in history? He got the U.S.A. out of Iraq, killed Osama (something that GWB failed to do with the same resources), is talking peace with Iran, trying to work out final deals with Afghanistan about withdrawl next year, and trying to help the poor, the middle class, and those without a voice in this nation. All that comes from your dirty, vile, Republican mouth is constant bellicose and irritating rants about how bad things are. I've seen improvement with my own eyes in my own neighborhood, city, and state. Numbers don't mean much against real-life results. But what would you know about Black folks suffering, racial profiling, immigrants trying to make it in America, and the plight of the homeless and uninsured, Mr. Well-Off White Guy? I bet nothing is the most simplistic answer. 1/1/1 for your comments.

Thanks for the input Lennie. KIP, I can't help but notice that after your first sentence or two you seemed to be talking to yourself, It begs the question, just who are you really trying to convince. Anyway you have yourself a great thanksgiving and try not to beat yourself up too much.

Way to go, "Keepin' it real"! When Reagan put his foot in his mouth he "misspoke." When Obama has a lapse about a complex law, Lennie and his ILK rush to call him a liar. It's time to beam Lennie back to the Gilded Age of Social Darwinism, but I'm sure he rejects Darwin in all forms.

Hi Ho, I see that I have found the formula to keep your limited interest. Any other traits of your messiah that you would like me to wax poetic on?

And once again, the leftists trolls demonstrate that they have only two ways to respond to a conservative's argument. The first is to accuse the conservative of extremism, which, in this case, is laughable given that polls show that our opinion is now the majority opinion. And the other is to engage in the nastiest form of race baiting and name calling ........ And I can't say it enough -- this concerted effort to give me the ol' "Emmanuel Goldstein Two Minute Hate" treatment is in reaction to a song where I suggested that lefties used this very tactic to squelch our side during the initial debate on ACA back in 2010. Way to prove me wrong, fellas.

To the lefties, from the 60's song Different Drum, You can't see the forrest for the trees! Your guy has stepped in big-time doo-doo and you still just give him a free pass!

Thanks Randy, I guess it's really true what they say... Give the people what they want, and they'll turn out.
