The Lyrics

Republicans have declared war on the middle class and the unemployed. In 2012 we must vote them out again, or we will be an Aristocracy, not a Democracy. And Obama is becoming weaker by the day. Here is a parody that kind of blasts Obama and sympathizes with the unemployed.
It was a real was a fantasy
He won in a landslide; now we face the reality.
Look thru the lies; Peel off his disguise and see.....

I'm just a poor schmuck, There are no jobs for me.
The rich get easy cash, easy dough; living high, taxes low.
Any way the Senate votes does no good for you or me....
You and me.

Obama just caved again;
Gave the tax cuts to the rich; Now we'll head back to "the ditch."
Obama....we know you could have won...
So why'd you go and throw it all away?

Obama....ooh-ooh-ooh...didn't need to compromise.
If the bill's not passed and signed this time tomorrow,
send it on....send it on....
It doesn't really matter.

Too late---his time is done.
He's lost his will and spine. Always caving all the time.
Heads up, everybody! You've got to know.
Don't wait till 2012 to face the truth!

Obama----ooh--ooh--oooh.....Why'd you have to lie?
I wonder why we bothered to vote at all.......

I see a middle class with unemployment bad.
(Hail to Bush! Hail to Bush! They renewed the old tax code)
Thinking 'bout retiring; nobody is hiring me.
Getting laid off! (getting laid off)
Getting laid off! (getting laid off)
Getting laid off, dontcha' know. (so hit the road-------)

I'm just a poor schmuck; no one will hire me.
He's just a poor schmuck with a poor family.
Spare him a dime to avoid poverty.
I need cash, I need dough...why do you say No?
Tough sh*t, Bob....So----we keep on saying "No". (saying "No")
Tough sh*t, Bob....we keep on saying "No". (saying "No")
Tough sh*t, Bob....we keep on saying "No". (saying "No")
Keep on saying "No";
Keep on saying "No"; saying "No",
No! No! No! No! No! No! No!
Obama hear, Obama hear us! (Obama hears em' saying "No")
Republicans help the wealthy, but they won't help me.....
Help Me!!!!!!!

So you think you can screw me and ruin my life
Then deny me my health care and leave me to die....
Oh Congress, can't do this to us, Congress....
We'll vote you out; Just toss you right out of here!

All that really matters? Money, power and greed.
Money's all that matters......all that matters to the G.O.P.......

Any way the Senate votes.........(GONG)

I'll give you top marks for a well-crafted parody that undoubtedly took much time and effort. Naturally, I disagree...but the One Bomber is worse than any self-serving evil politician. ;D

No, he's not. The One Bomber never did what Nixon, Reagan and Bush did. As for the parody, well, I guess the right-wingers got something else wrong: Barack Obama is NOT Jimmy Carter. He's Gerald Ford.
John Jenkins - December 20, 2010 - Report this comment
Even though this parody contains several erroneous left wing talking points, it is very well constructed. When the 3rd verse suggests that "Obama could have won," what could he have won??? If he had not agreed to preserve the existing tax rates when he did, he would have ended up with the same tax rates being approved by the new congress after a few more weeks of a confused economy.

Hilarious! And to the others above trying to analyse this gem: ITS CALLED COMEDY! Lighten up.
