The Lyrics

As Hallowe'en approached, the scariest thing that many Democratic candidates feared was that the President might come to speak in their districts. I parodied the later Sarah Brightman lyrics, but you can watch Patti LuPone sing it here.
It won't be easy, you'll think it strange
When I try to explain how I feel,
That I still need your votes after all that I've done.
You won't believe me.
All you will see is a guy no one knew.
Although he's dressed up by the Times,
Aft six years, no heaven's for you.

I had to make **it happen; I hoped for change,
Couldn't stay with my wife down at heel,
Hanging out in the Senate, staying out of the fun;
So I'd vote "present."
Running for president, my ratings grew
From nothing. The press seemed to fall;
They never inspected my crew.

Don't cry for B. H. Obama.
The truth is: I'm clever Left-dude.
Although my guile frayed
Right's mad obstructors,
I broke my promise;
Don't keep your doctors.

Hands clasped, Republicans cast their blame;
I never invited them in.
Though it seemed to the world peace was all I desired,
They had delusions;
They fought transformations I promised you'd see.
My answer was: smear all with slime.
I govern and hope Blues love me.

Don't cry for B. H. Obama ...

Don't cry for B. H. Obama.
The truth has forever left me.
Although my bile slayed
Right's mad endurance,
I broke my promise;
Don't keep insurance.

Have I said too much?
There's nothing new I can think of to sway your vote;
But all you have to do is look at me
To know that ev'ry word is rote.

Don't cry for B. H. Obama ...

"Cry" may mean to call out for, as well as to weep.

A more recent performance is http://www.thebacklot.com/watch-nicole-scherzinger-owns-dont-cry-for-me-argentina/04/2013/
I'd change "staying out of the fun" to "hiding naught that I'd done" as an Illinois and D.C. Senator.

How fitting to use a song about one liberal icon (who accomplished little on her own) to skewer another! Great job as always, Barry!

As Dana said, a fitting choice of OS, about a populist icon with no achievements. This is very well written, in the classic AIR tradition. Wish I saw more of these. So many brilliant lines: "dressed up by the Times", "The truth has forever left me". "Don't keep your doctors". I'd like to hear someone record this.

Dana & Patrick: Thanks for your Cs & Vs. There was so much more I wanted to mention about BHO's policies, but only two digs about Obamacare fit TOS's lyrics. Today's elections determine who are the lame ducks for the next 8 weeks, when much mischief can be done in the Senate and Executive Branch, followed by 2 years of Executive Orders. Then in 2016, the Senate could go Democratic again because 24 Republican seats won in 2010 will be at risk, but only 10 Democrat seats.
