The Lyrics

you kill the wealth you kill yourself.. America is about to lose it's coveted AAA credit rating because odumba borrowed above his limit, taxes the hell out of the rich, drove down incentives for wealth, and spread the agony around. God help us all...........................
What's the matter with the wealth he's sharing?
do I alone think it's all offside
maybe he can go and print a zillion dollars
deep in debt till the end of time
what has he been handing out? lotsa money
now the problems are too big not so funny
odumbo's talkin lately bout the shared wealth
funny but he'll kill the economy

what's the matter? democrats like lying
here's the crap just a deeper pile
it's the way of communistic liars
if you're working wait a little while
but his policys are all instrumental
the tax and spend has come and not very gentle
what bunk, word junk, that punk he stunk
and he will kill the economy

oh it doesn't matter in the "drive by" papers
'cause it's always been the same old scene
they have their man in town
and he's dragging us down and you know it's a bad day obscene
worse than it's ever been

how about a pair of big car buyouts
as they close another hundred plants
you can hear him he's o-dumba baby
and with him we don't have a chance
sure he's cute and looks like one good speaker
all he's done is make America look weaker
he's full, of bull, pull the wool half full
he will kill the economy

what's the matter with the crowd he's leading?
can you tell that they're out of touch
vote for Rush, he'd be a big improvement
that odumba doesn't think too much
all the commies think that this gag is funny
tax and spend and spread around the smart people's money
this phase, disgrace, his place anyways
he'll kill the economy

everybody's talkin about the new clown baby
but he'll kill the economy

I didn't vote on the parody because I have a distinct opinion that's different from your own, and I didn't want to let my opinion affect my judgment, but in my opinion, no--the economy has been dead long before the democrats took office, and contrary to popular beliefs, the Republicans have controlled the Senate and House of Representatives for almost two full decades (most of my life), meaning they were behind most public policy that led to our current predicament, I fail to see how the democrats can be blamed when they've only had control for two and half years after decades of republican rule (and yes that includes the Clinton era--Don't Ask Don't Tell is not a liberal view point) I'm not on either of the big parties, as Tommy Turtle can attest too, but I am respectfully disagreeing with you.

What Dave said. And to the author: I think your slandering of the president is uncalled for. Replacing the middle syllable with the word "dumb" is childish. It's even more childish than calling the former president "George W. Bulls**t", which I've seen. I happened to watch the news this morning, and from what I gathered, he's doing the best he can to help the situation. You honestly think a Republican could have handled it better? Hardly. George W Whatshisname, a Republican't, is the one who got us into this economical mess in the first place. As I recall, his daddy got us into one shortly before HE left office as well, and when Clinton took over, it took awhile before things got back under control too. Anna nutherthing, it still baffles my mind how this author has such a big interest in American politics even though he himself isn't even from the US. Anyways...as a 27-year-old American citizen, I didn't like this parody very much, and I'm undecided about voting on it.

below average dave said 'behind most public policy that led to our current predicament". it wasnt public policy. it is o-12,000 more troops-bomb-a spending generations of money. bush started it and o-bomb 12,000 more troops-ba sunk the steak in the heart. the debt is from the liberals. they wont continue the bush tax cuts, why contuinue the war you liberals said we couldnt win? how severe is your overboard hate that things like the above mentioned doesnt draw some kind of critisism out of you towards your liberal two faced leaders? how foolish and unhealthy on the body to have that much hate inside. we aint buying these vehicles enough for these car compainies to float, so since we dont buy them, we must not want them. so if the companies went away, we wouldnt miss the cars now would we? so why bail 'em out? bush, to me was a miserable liberal. we got bombed on 9/11 case ya forgot. bush stayed in the war too long. so o - 12,000 troops-bomb-a sends in 12,0000 more troops. any complaints liberals? i didnt think so... bush did make this economy. the war took lots of dough, hurt his "efforts" to improve our economy. as always Sir Higins is #1.

Refresh my memory: Which one of us was away in September 2008? That's the month the economy died, Malcolm, as a result of seven years of moronic conservatism. President Obama has already stopped the Bush recession from becoming a depression. Soon the jobs will return, and the debt will start to be paid off, as it was under the last liberal Democratic President.

Hm, Rob, I don't believe I said anything 'hateful' in my comment, nope, sure didn't, I stated my opinion, and your argument didn't change my opinion since you ignored an important part of my comment--like most conservatives (not necessarily Malcom) because I'm not in agreement with the "Republican" view on this--I'm a liberal--when I'm actually only a social liberal, I think I have said that in the past, and I know I said I'm not on either party, so yeah here's my complaint. . .since you feel I am a liberal (you did call me out by name afterall) There is A LOT more wrong with the economy than the war in Iraq. Bush may have been economically liberal, slightly, but he certainly wasn't socially, he's conservative as can be. . .don't try to brush aside credit where credit is due, Bush is/was overall a Conservative Republican--and he happened to be . . shall we say less than perfect? And he was doing bail outs BEFORE Obama took office, that seems to be forgotten--and so does the fact that it was the MORTGAGE and BANKING industries that were at the heart of our economic tailspin--that caused the auto industry to crash. Bad loans being given out for years with little to no regulation, and that's Obama's fault how exactly? This was a long time coming, and the supposedly conservative Republicans that controlled our country for the past nearly two decades did nothing to head it off, not that I fully blame them either, but the Republicans stopped being "conservative" a long time ago, acting as if the two parties are so different, pointing fingers is easy. . .ignoring the truth is too--Iraq is not the center of our economic meltdown, anyone who has taken basic economic classes in Jr High would know that. . .

Thiis is why I write political parodies. IT STIRS DEBATE. Greg, this is a parody site. "odumba" stays. Mike, remember, this isn't personal. The economy has been at the mercy of the dems for over two years They saw this coming and sat and did nothing. HOW LONG BEFORE THEY TAKE ACTION??? Rob, I agree that the repubs have abandoned traditional right values. Good for you for not helping them. I will write as many politicos as I wish until the owner of this site says otherwise, then I will allow him the RIGHT to exercise his ownership, rather than try to deny his rights.. ( a democratic move) I would begin my own site.. I have about 2500 or so to start.. and Rob.. democrats admit a wrong? never .. I read Ann Coulter's book "Guilty" and it made it more clear than ever..gave me a lot of ammunition too

I will not respond to most of your comment because again you are taking a stance as if I am strictly liberal. First--Obama has been in office for 6 months, blown it? He's awfully new to be passing judging him as having "blown it".. .and I want to reply to this too "illegals, people who vote many times, dead people, bums, criminals.". . .

Illegals cannot vote, in any state, that is a common falsehood used by conservative extremists to drum up support.

People who vote many times and dead people. . .with today's verification systems and so forth--I'd like to know just how prevalent this supposed problem is. I also fail to see how this would be limited to 'liberals'

Bums, if they are United States Citizens have EVERY RIGHT TO VOTE

Criminals, if you are implying active criminals--that I agree-and so do most states Liberal or Conservative, if you imply those who've served their time as imposed by the judicial system, I'm sorry-but you can't expect someone to pay taxes and not have a say in the government, unless their previous crime was VOTER FRAUD, or they are actively engaged in crime, you can't have a society where we dictate people who have no say in their government, that would make us DICTATORS. . .in our society, 'crime' involves flashing, bad checks, having too many garage sales in some localities, standing water for more than three days in some localities, prostitution, pot possession--even if you are in someone else's car and you don't know about it, 15 year olds with other 15 year olds in some states--you are saying 'criminals' who are expected to work and pay taxes like everyone else shouldn't have the right to vote? Sorry, I disagree, this country was founded on principals of fair justice, not indefinite or permanent, unless you commit crimes that deserve such punishment. . .if you have a problem with the length of punishment for certain crimes, that's one thing, but those who have served their time and are no longer under government regulation should have a RIGHT to vote--and most states agree with that--again Red or Blue

BTW, that's my last comment on this, you can reply, but I really am too busy to argue with you--our individual opinions are not going to change, that much is obvious

Malcolm - it isn't possible for Obama to kill the economy when what it needs is resurrection. Calling him "Odumba" really does make you come across as petty and a bit stupid yourself, IMHO: when compared to the previous incumbent, he looks more like a genius. What, you do it because he hasn't continued with economic policies that are proven to have failed? How much dumber would that have been?

But right now we don't know whether the the course being steered by Obama will drag the US (and hopefully the rest of the world with it) out of the economic mire it is currently in - if it does, will we be getting as many "I was wrong" parodies from you?
malcolm higgins - June 04, 2009 - Report this comment
opinions vary, Phil, and I appreciate and will gladly debate our differences. I have praised him already in parodies foor the RIGHT things I believed he has done, and the GOOD. Preaching as Greg did to my sense ow "own intelligence" ( Geez, if you stop slagging the messiah you'll look more intelligent) is worthless. Intelligent dissent and refusal to tuck in line blindly with the rest of the sheep are open signs of brilliance, IMHO. I walk alone sometimes, but in the same direction as those who demand freedom and life. The mark of a champion is those who burn the last 1% others keep in reserve. I hold nothing back good or bad, and appeals to my intellectual vanity are pointless. I love your work, and if I disagree with it even 100%, you will never hear me say as a liberal would "Boy.. maybe we can shame him into our way of thinking.. or maybe if we shout louder he'll stop." I have a habit of speech that drives liberals nuts. As they shout down and catcall in disagreement, my monotone continues until they are or I am finished. I refuse to repeat what they rudely interrupted. I had the conch. You miss it, well LISTEN nex time. You have my word that if I think odumba has done something great, you will see a praise parody. He has a higher hill to climb than most, but if he is as good as his sheep think, it should be a walk in the park. Even if he walks on the pond... Cheers..

I'm afraid I have to side with Mr. Hoffman here. Name-calling the president IS rather childish, especially since he's only been in office for a few months now. Time will tell how good he's going to do. He knows that it's gonna take time to get rid of the mess left by the Republican'ts (good one, Greg) over their 8-year reign. As an American citizen of the past 30 whole years (today's my birthday!), I have to say that I disagree with the content of this parody, as well as the opening comments. Since there is no 0-0-0 button on the ballot, I have to settle for 1's.

The author of the parody has authorized comments, and wants YOUR feedback.
