The Lyrics

©2015 by Michael W. McVey Original ©1978 by Olivia Newton-John ("Grease")
The truth was hardly ever spoken;
Obama, you're the worst to lie.
But even those who knew,
there was no saying "no" to you.
They let themselves be fooled, not willing
to be accused of hating you.
The jobs all went away, there's nothing else that they could do,
so helplessly they voted for you

So now there's nowhere to work,
since you passed Obamacare; they're out on the street,
helplessly they voted for you.
Helplessly they voted for you,
helplessly they voted for you.

Their mouths say, "We're gonna stop him!"
Their works are saying, "Way to go!"
Wimp out in the end, that's not what you said you'd do,
when helplessly we voted for you.
Repubs, there's no way to hide
that you've pushed your base aside to kiss Barack's rear,
helplessly we voted for you.
Helplessly we voted for you,
helplessly we voted for you.

Propaganda isn't parody. 4-1-2

The first time he won because he truly was the better candidate (and people didn't want someone who was essentially another George W Bush), second time he won it was because there was a low Republican turnout in comparison to Democrats, Independents broke for Romney and they usually decide things but that doesn't happen when it's otherwise unbalanced.
