The Lyrics

The US president has been fund-raising for months, and hopes to raise a billion dollars before November 2012. But his polls are weak due to many policy mistakes and the current stalemate over the debt limit and control of future spending and taxation. Unlike the protagonist in TOS, he is picking every pocket but his own.
Money earned I stole from your pocket.
How I wish I had billions of dollars from hustings of Blue,
And thus buy sitting pres'dent's term two.

Money earned from coal bin, I knock yet.
Now I wish I had oil well sin taxes to keep me supplied
With money, while I rich guys deride.

Every day when I speak,
I could bus'ness deplore.
Pharmaceutical drugs (Part D)
Should soon be cured. [1]

Smart money turns to gold or wise stock bet.
As I bring unemployment and handouts, foreclosures you dread,
I wish that New York Times mankind read. [2]

Every day when I speak,
I find divisions galore. [3]
All the booty fools bring to me
Would soon be yours.

Running, learned to scold spin-lie talk-net; [4]
So I'm single superb human, standing for growing the Fed
And wishing, may we stymie the Red.
[1] Liberals want to saddle this popular competitive Medicare plan with negotiated pricing.
[2] Then nobody would oppose the march toward statism.
[3] He is expert at planting the seeds of envy in any minority.
[4] He verbally attacked conservative radio & TV hosts in 2008 (and since).

BJM - This is a new Dean Martin song to me...but the parody lyrics are unmistakably yours. I saw a recent statistic that somewhere between 40 and 50% of Americans pay no federal tax! I doubt if all of them are millionaires, hedge fund managers, or oil companies. Perhaps if more people actually paid taxes, their feelings about big (inefficient wasteful) government might be different. ;D

OMR: Thanks; you must be younger than I! It's one of DM's signature songs.
That statistic is for income tax; they and employers do pay Social Security and Medicare payroll taxes (unless the worker takes the Making Work Pay credit that rebates FICA). But some get back more than they contributed, by claiming "refundable" credits.

Footnote for Line 4: As a candidate, he said "Utilities can operate coal-fired power stations, but they will be bankrupted under Cap & Trade" and "Under my plan, electricity rates would skyrocket."
Line 5 expresses regret for restricting domestic drilling, foregoing royalties.
