The Lyrics

A spokesman from the State Department has suggested that President Obama is planning to drop a bomb to reconnect with his base constituency (and make good on a campaign promise). A face-to-face meeting with Iranian President Ahmedinejad is supposedly in the works...without any pre-conditions of course. If Irving Berlin had programmed his teleprompter, we might have heard a message like this. ;D



Summer - Of Recov'ry,
But it's happening at much too slow a pace,
And my negative poll scores I must erase.
So I'll meet with Ahmanutjob face to face.
Anger - at incumbents!
Soon my Congress will have lots of empty space.
I am even hacking off my left wing base.
So I'll meet with Ahmanutjob face to face.

I'll be hailed in press editions.
They will re-assert my case.
I will break with all traditions
As I meet him face to face.
There will be no pre-conditions.
He will pick the time and place.
I will pull down all partitions
As I meet him face to face.

Israel?
Ahmed will not bother it.
He says he'll slaughter it
But he's a moderate!

(And so) I'll be - re-elected,
With Hil Clinton old Joe Biden I'll replace.
If it doesn't work I'll play my card of race
And deny I met that nut job face to face!



Why not? It is his "constitutional right", even though he "did not comment and will not comment on the wisdom" of such a meeting. ;D

And Iran will continue to work at getting nuclear weaons. Great job of "acing" all of the face rhymes.

I especially liked the way you used "Ahmanutjob" to subtract one syllable and keep the pacing. 555

I echo all comments above. Great job with this OS and loved your political parodies.

What Barry said. Another syllable and you have "Madmandigsjihad."

"Face to Face, what a great disgrace, to give madmen their place, without using some mace!!!" Loved it, Ribber...

Thanks. Your comments mean more to me than all the one bombing in the world. ;D
