The Lyrics

Some people are good at apologizing ... for everything except their own actions and shortcomings. It's obvious our current president has issues with this country. For some reason, he doesn't realize the great country he inherited because he keeps saying he inherited a mess and is trying to change EVERYTHING! However, he does love the attention he gets from the rest of the world, with all their history of war, discrimination, oppression, thuggery, poverty, tyranny, genocide, mass murder, and injustice. After sitting on a report on Afghanistan for six weeks that included requests for reinforcements, after news emerged that he'd only met with the top Afghanistan commander, Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, once in 9 months, he's off to Europe again, this time to get the 2016 Olympics for his pals in Chicago. I think his sales pitch (assuming it's not a done-deal already, will go like this:

I'm sorry, so sorry
My countreeee …. was so cruel
I wasn’t there
Now things are so coooool
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, yeah

We made our mistakes
Killed Indians for fun
Saw'it on TV
F-Troop was the bomb

[Reads from teleprompter:]
(I'm sorry) I'm sorry
(So sorry) So sorry
Please give us the Olympic Games
I’m Daly’s guy
Patronage is still alive
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, yeah

You clapped when I told
Those Jews to leave the hood (wild applause)
And that Chavez
Was misunderstood (loud whoops)
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, yeah

I'm sorry, so sorry
My countreee … was so cruel
But now I’m here
Please award that gold ... to me
Yep, the president is desperate to win something these days, even if it's an Olympics that has already been decided upon. You know how these negotiations work. Anyway, I'm sure the Chicago machine, the social establishment, the unions, and the rest of the elites are lining up (hopefully) for the 2016 gravy train. I wonder if they'll be celebrating this weekend? We'll know shortly, won't we? ;-)

This news just in - SHE LOST! (Michelle) ... he, too. ... in what surely would have been a conflict of interest, and probably have set a new Olympic record for pork-barrel politics. Five Gold Medals.

Timmy1000 - Yes. Did you know that the government has known about that site since last year, and that Obama didn't want to bring it up at the UN because it might put a damper on his speech. It was only after Iran got wind of the fact we knew that he brought it up at the G20 the next day in front of a very P-O'd pair in Brown and Sarkozy.

Thanks blackhack21 - just trying to do my part in making some sense out of this Alice and Wonderland world we live in. ;-)

Thanks TJC - a like that we 'bama bashers' never have to resort to name calling. We just repeat what he says and does. :-D

TT - Yes, I was not shocked but I was mildly surprised, thinking Obama would not go unless the deal was already in the bag. I'm loving the media spin on this debacle already. The upside is he was able to spare 25 minutes to talk to Gen. McCrystal after his presentation. Gee ... how many times will Michelle drag out that story about her dad having MS? These two people actually think everything's about THEM. Too bad for Obama's closest adviser Valerie Jarrett. I guess she won't be able to unload all those slums she owns now and will have to fix them up herself (maybe).

Thanks, adagio! I sometimes like the challenge of working with simple and concise lyrics to create a meaningful parody.
