The Lyrics

Limbaugh: Obama wants to connect us with 1932,
He promises prosperity, but that's not what he will do.
I sure do want to tell him, he should think his spending through,
He's have more luck with the great tax cuts of 1982.

Obama: They say hindsight's 20-20, but you right-wingers are blind.
You're so obsessed with Reagan, you can't keep up with the times.
It's that same old economics, tax cuts will not undo
The asinine unemployment lines of 1982.

Limbaugh: Your Congress is insipid, they just rubber stamp
Your socialistic budget, you're quite the spending man.
After all the porkulus, we'll be bankrupt through and through,
The voters would have run you out back in 1982.

Obama: They say hindsight's 20-20, but I know that I'm not blind.
I know just what I'm doing, why don't you give me time?
I'm tired of your stories, and you know that they're not true.
We had the Fairness Doctrine then, in 1982,
Radio sublime, didn't have your kind in 1982!
