The Lyrics

The Dow Jones Industrial Average went up 500 points today. (Well, 497.) Suddenly, I don't hear any right-wingers talking about how Obama is driving the market down!
(instrumental opening)

Obama said there'd be days like this.
There'd be days like this, Obama said.
(Obama said, Obama said.)
Obama said there'd be days like this.
There'd be days like this, Obama said.
(Obama said, Obama said.)

I went walking the other day.
Everything was going fine.
I met a silly boy named Dubya
and I almost lost my mind.

Obama said there'd be days like this.
There'd be days like this, Obama said.
(Obama said, Obama said.)
Obama said there'd be days like this.
There'd be days like this, Obama said.
(Obama said, Obama said.)

My eyes were wide open
but all that I could see
was the country in tatters
all thanks to the G.O.P.!

But I don't worry, 'cause
Obama said there'd be days like this.
There'd be days like this, Obama said.
(Obama said, Obama said.)
Obama said there'd be days like this.
There'd be days like this, Obama said.
(Obama said, Obama said.)

And then I said
someday, someone will come along
and he'll be replacing you one day.
And he'll fix things and show us
you were lousy in every way!

So I don't worry, 'cause
Obama said there'd be days like this.
There'd be days like this, Obama said.
(Obama said, Obama said.)
Obama said there'd be days like this.
There'd be days like this, Obama said.

(Obama said, Obama said, hey!)
Don't you worry!
(Obama said, Obama said, hey!)
Don't you worry!
(Obama said, Obama said, hey!)
Don't you worry!
(Obama said, Obama said, hey!)
Obama said there'd be days like this.
There'd be days like this, Obama said.
(Obama said, Obama said.)
Obama said there'd be days like this.
There'd be days like this, Obama said.
(Obama said, Obama said.)
(repeat 'til fade)

Michael Pacholek, that's funny, but then again it isn't! Already you believe that the market is recovering because of Obama. Well, it isn't! The Obama-nation administration spending plan and proposals of new socialist programs like welfare and free healthcare will ultimately cause inflation and stagnation. Looks like another repeat of the Carter catastrophe! But then again, peanut farmers and community organizers seem to have all the experience that is necessary to govern America, according to those leftists!

Just stop it. Stop it with "socialist" and "leftists." You don't understand either word. We tried your "MBA President," and he caused this disaster. And stop with "Carter": Jimmy Carter created more jobs per year than any President since -- even Bill Clinton, and he far outperformed Ronald Reagan. Oh yeah, he understands diplomacy, as has every Democratic President since Wilson. Come to think of it, so did Reagan, eventually. Yet your boy Bush refused to use it. You guys said Clinton's economic moves would cause inflation and stagnation, and the result was the greatest economy in the history of the planet, and hardly any inflation. You guys are wrong every single time. And you were rejected last November. And you deserved it.

Michael: thanks for the encouragement! I'm tired of these right-wingers maximinzing Obama's little blemishes and minimizing Bush's big blights! They remind me of someone who watched their older brother smash someone's leg to pieces, and then want the doctor arrested for not healing the leg fast enough! BTW, 5-5-5 for you!

Well, we can say this for Jimmuh: unlike the current squatter in the White House, he was puffing those blunts ONLY in his heart.

Seeing those insane comments, I have questions to you people: Which one do you people prefer? Obama to screw up and the country goes down or Obama does well and the country improves as a result?

Vagrant, you sure got it right calling Carter a "peanut-brain" because that's what he is. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with those dumb leftists. The dumb-o-crats get all excited because the stock market goes up one day, but is actually down every other day (they're still blaming Bush for that) when it is actually Obama's fault that we are in the worst economic crisis ever!

Seeing your insane comment, what would you prefer? Or are you too busy sniffing cats again?

Michael and Melanie are dead right about the premise of this parody and about PI's comments. Seeing as Obama hasn't been in office for very long, time will tell about how good he will be, but I have a feeling that he will stave off the very possible collapse of the United States (much like those of the Soviet Union and Roman Empire) for at least a little while. But he and his successors will have a lot of Bush's wrongdoings and messes to clean up for a good while. 1s.

Love those political parodies eh Michael? I personally think he's a clown. and he's been in for three months and already he's alluding to allowing himself a second term to get the work done.. what a dope. anyway, not a bad take on the OS.. I'll bash him, you bang him, I hate him you love him.. to each his own, and keep up the work, man.. this is what gets my juices flowing...lol

Poli-TINK-ly incoorect: you are wrong. It was NOT entirely his fault. It started while Geroge W. Bulls**t was in office ,and regardless of who was elected, the recession would've continued. So leave him alone, it always takes time to pull things out. Nothing's gonna happen overnight. It's obvious you have a QI in the dingle-sigits, just like Yubble-doo did. does.
By the way, Poli- can kiss my wazoo if he sees this.

By the way, what's with the bombardment of unfair votes? Was this parody really that off-paced?
