The Lyrics

Romney and the GOP want to supress and maybe even stop Hispanics and Blacks from voting. Taking us back 50 years! You're a dirtbag, Mr. Romney! And so are the rest of your Nazi Republican supporters.
See them in line at voting time--
Blaming Obama for their crime
'Cause they won't help with jobs
The man with the orange tan tells some lies
As we watch the phony tears in his eyes
Cause' we know they can't.... create jobs

That's just the way Mitt is
Just like he was at Bain....
That's just the way Mitt is
And you just can't believe him

(They) say "hey there 'Poncho' you can't vote like the others vote
'Cause you don't look like we do"
Hey, Republican, is that your plan?...to take my vote away?
Well, you better think about it before you change the rules!

That's just the way Mitt is
Just like he was at Bain....
That's just the way Mitt is
And you just can't believe him

Well they passed a law in '64
To help black folks vote a little more
Now Republicans gone too far
If the law does change from Romney's lies
Then all we'll see is three white guys
Coming down on the colored guy

That's just the way Mitt is
Just like he was at Bain....
That's just the way Mitt is
And you just can't believe him
To make the word play stronger, I often use metaphors. In case you didn't know already, the "man with the orange tan" is Boehner. The "three white guys" are the Southern racists intimidating blacks from voting.

Like the pacing!

I don't recall anyone using this Bruce Hornsby tune before. The time is coming when we'll have to go through a government grope before boarding a municipal bus. But we'll be able to vote as often as we like without showing any identification at all.

I once metaphor. I told her, with a little bit of makeup she could be a 6. Buh-dum.

the writers comments at the top are wrong. republicans want to stop liberal cheating but that wont happen. look at al frankens' 3000+ illegal votes. . . as i always say, liberal voters have no integrity when it comes to being honest

Of course Republicans won't stop liberal cheating. That's because there isn't any. Anybody who says there is is a liar, and anybody who believes it is a moron. Liars and morons: The Republicans' constituency.
Bill Clinton - June 30, 2012 - Report this comment
That last comment, though I might agree, has three "is's" in it. So the point is unprovable, because we all know: "It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is."
