The Lyrics

The US VP, earlier charged with overseeing the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, now is the chief spokesman for the 2010 Summer of Recovery. But a summer is a person who can add up the numbers, which don't support his rhetoric on the economy. CHFUDNKTOS.
Don't lie, Joe; bet you know we have growth near zero.
Won't fly, Joe; debt will grow, yet you crow it's not so.

You've got to realize that folks have lined up
Who want a shovel-ready job; skilled trades have signed up.
Don't shy, Joe, from the faux fed'ral dough that you blow.

So we lost our jobs, it's happened many times before.
So you sit and hope but can't cope; what's that good for?
You were bold by yourself with drama;
You served long before Obama.
There were lots of other pearls that you'd say.

Ask why, Joe, BHO came to blow afterglow.
Here's why, Joe: there were no bills he'd show to the foe.

You've got to realize that got their back up;
He'd do much better and evade a crack-up.
Just try, Joe, let him know he must go toe to toe.

Tune in to the sounds of radio you're missing,
You'd soon correct your troubles, Joe, if you'd only listen.
So don't cry, Joe; better show better growth, Joe, or you'll go.

Joe Biden doesn't lie. Quite the opposite: His big problem is that sometimes he tells the truth when he really ought to keep it to himself.

I'm glad the stimulus is working...the people sure aren't! it's all part of the administration's latest public relations campaign...The Summer Of Skullduggery! ;D

MP: You should read more carefully; I didn't say Joe lied, only advised him against it. My main purpose was to help him and POTUS get bipartisan support. ;=)
OMR: LOL @ SOS. Spending Time In My Useless Life Under Socialism !
I used 3 versions of TOS; to match the cited link, insert "Barack" before "Obama" and add a final line "Go, Joe!" To be fair, change "near zero" to "that's too low" and "dough that you blow" to "dough that you sow."

Well-crafted as usual... and nice reminder of OS! :)

OMG, we're all doomed... .

@ MP: "Tells the truth"? You mean, about hanging around the diner that closed twenty years ago, saying that FDR spoke on TV in 1929, when FDR wasn't president and TV wasn't available to the public? Cited here; you missed your chance to Unabomb this one - it has eleven straight 555s, so go spoil it:

Another opportunity at this spoof of Biden's blabbing:

Back on topic: Loved the play on "summer!" And congrats on getting *yourself* Unabombed -- it means that you've pressed someone's buttons, as you know when you read TT's Unabomber parody. The truth hurts... except here, where it gets Fives. Preach it, Bro!

Fg & TT: Welcome back! Thanks for tips & encouragement. I've been unobombed before, also 411 & 511.
