The Lyrics

a salvation army man prayed
and general motors got aid
and the deficit never gets paid..
this day....
and though the others were in the game
odumba just claimed his shame
pushing the folks away

Ah hey ma ma ma
Life with odumba 'round

there was poverty all around
and they wept like all get out
the economy headed down
just listen
he said it's what bush has left here for me
you can't blame this on me
I'll spread the wealth for free
I like The Beatles."

Ah- hey ma ma ma
Life with odumba round
Ah hey ma ma ma
All the work shut down.

in the evening on t.v again
the commie bastard was talking again
and they followed him round
on the station
and though I hope he'll soon be bye bye
he can damage our long term lives
but Sarah will make it all right
bye bye

Ah hey ma ma ma
Life with odumba 'round.
Ah hey ma ma ma
Life with odumba 'round

Really, Malcolm, you're just embarrassing yourself at this point. Obama's not a communist and you know it. The fact that you used a song whose original lyrics cite "the day John Kennedy died" makes it even more offensive. Do you really expect anyone to believe that President Obama is dumb, when, like Bill Clinton and Sonia Sotomayor but NOT George W. Bush, he got into and graduated from at least one Ivy League school without his father's help even being possible? Even his harshest critics know he's smart, and even Bush's greatest supporters know he's not too bright. So stop with the "Odumb" stuff: Good humor contains a kernel of truth, and this doesn't even have a korporal of truth.

didn't hear much from me when you bashed dub, Michael. ...Democrats have thin skkin and thick B.S... besides he has only 3 years and nine months left to bash... get over it. His stupid decisions make him odumba not his intelligence. His political stripe is like the one on my undies .. just more full of it. He's a smarter MAN than he is president. He seems to be a great husband and father. Nice guy. We could have lunch. I hate his politics, so he wears it. Like I said. get over it. Democrats voted him in, and unlike the democratic wish for their critics I WILL NOT BE SILENCED. Keep up your good songs. I'll mix politicos with mine. Nothing personal.
