The Lyrics

As the U.S. federal government shutdown ends its first week, President Barack Obama steadfastly refuses to negotiate with House Speaker John Boehner, while Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee continue to press for defunding and/or delay of ObamaCare before passing the FY 2014 budget. For these imagined thoughts of the president, I chose this version of TOS because it was less stylized than Frank Sinatra's.
I, Obama, want all.
Half of legislature [1] deals with me.
If you're smart, Boehner, you'd yield to me,
Or I'd rather give nothing at all.

Stall for spending it all!
If in government's no in-between,
Why begin and try for funding just nine of ten? [2]
So I'd rather fund nothing at all.

Harry butts his lips so close to my cheeks!
Don't file House bills; they're tossed, Reid won't roll-call.
Ted's vision, Mike's lies! Just watching C-span makes me freak,
But my heart won't grow fizzy and fall.

And if I fell under John's compromise wall,
I would be fodder for pundit shows.
For news briefs, I've got to say no.
(Give me) All or nothing at all.
[1] The Democrat-majority Senate
[2] Appropriations bills passed by the Republican-majority House

Footnote [1] should include a pronunciation/accent guide as lej-ISS-lay-tchur to match TOS.
I'd change "his lips so close" to "dour lips, cold nose" in line 9 to match TOS.

In an ABC/Washington Post poll released today, 51% of U.S. adults said they disapprove of the president’s handling of the situation and 45% approve of his handling of negotiations over the budget. What negotiations?

Ripped from the headlines, as they say..and good ripping...although, as you know, I lean a different direction, I must commend your parody skills, here

Great as usual, Barry. And I was amazed the other day to see him say "I've bent over backwards to deal with Republicans during my whole administration." Guess "backwards" means something different to him.
