The Lyrics

Being the vast-rightwing-conspirator/astroturfer/hobbit/teabagger that I am, it's about time I came up with an anti-Obama parody. The "It doesn't matter" section is paraphrased from a sign that has appeared at some Tea Party rallies. Here's a YouTube of TOS.
It doesn't matter what we say
We know you're gonna call us racist anyway, hey
It doesn't matter what we say
We know you're gonna call us racist anyway, hey

We try to tell you but you just don't understand
Don't like the way he's running our land
Down with Barack, down with Barack
Too bad you can't get through your thick skulls
That it's not because he's black

Well, sorry lefties, we don't see it your way
You had your chance, but this isn't your day
Vote down with Barack, down with Barack
Oh well, you know that we won't miss him
Time to get him off our back

Down with Barack, down with Barack
Down with Barack

Mister Obama, sir, I'd say we've had enough
Here's Romney* and he's calling your bluff
Down with Barack, down with Barack
Oh well, you know that we won't miss you
When we take country back

Down with Barack, down with Barack

Look out! - wingnuts got their tea bags!

[instrumental]

It doesn't matter what we say
We know you're gonna call us racist anyway, hey
It doesn't matter what we say
We know you're gonna call us racist anyway, hey

You used to say it's patriotic to dissent
But threw out that rule with this president
So, down with Barack, down with Barack
Well, I know where he is going
Send him back to Chicago

Down with Barack, down with Barack [repeat]

It doesn't matter what we say
We know you're gonna call us racist anyway, hey
It doesn't matter what we say
We know you're gonna call us racist anyway, hey
It doesn't matter what we say
Look Ma, moving up in the world!
*Looks like Mitt Romney will get the GOP nomination. Had some primaries turned out differently, I might have used "Gingrich" or "Rickie" (Santorum) instead.

Good one!

Speaking as a lefty (not to say I speak for all of my lefty friends, acquaintances, and confused ambidextrous folk), I don't subscribe to simple name calling because you disagree with me. My subscription ran out long ago along with Dogma Today, Bipolar Digest, and Prayboy.
That being said, with Romney in the picture this should be an interesting
...race.

It's OK to criticize Mr. O but if you do so it should be for his policies. Criticism of him isn't necessarily racist but there is some oppositiion that thinly cloaks racism with childish rumormongering and name calling. All this labeling like Muslim, socialist, etc. DOES lead me to ask, "Who started that one, Mister Rogers?"

If it quacks like a duck, it's a duck. If he's an idiot, he's an idiot. What's so hard about that?
