The Lyrics

Mr. President, let me get his straight. We're attacking Libya but we're not at war? Kaddafi must go, but regime change is not our objective? We're using bombs and missiles, but we're not trying to harm Kaddafi? ;D

First I say Kaddafi's got to go.
Then I tell the world "Regime change? No!".
I'm indecisive now, so what am I gonna to do?
Egypt and Bahrain I left alone.
Now I will enforce a "no-fly zone".
I'm indecisive now, somebody give me a clue.

'Though I won the prize for peace
And I told that fellow "Cease!",
Now the missles I release and they're flaming.
For as any fool can see
This was planned by Hillary,
So you mustn't point at me for the blaming!

We're just shooting planes, so have no dread.
Don't touch a hair on - Kaddafi's head.
I'm indecisive now. Positions? I've more than two.

(Instrumental break to bridge)

I'm unsure about this stance
That we're taking behind France
'Cause we cannot take the chance they're above us.
Now the coalition's failed
And the Arab League has bailed
So we surely will get nailed! They won't love us.

I was quite content with warning talks.
Now our ships are slinging Tomahawks.
I'm indecisive now. Another big test I blew.

(Tag) You thought Bush was evil and I was a saint,
But now it is apparent that Reagan I ain't!
I am The One - it's true!
Don't call me Carter Part Two!

There are so many spellings of Kaddafi because of the translation problems. Fortunately, the name translates perfectly into Spanish. Kaddafi is spelled and pronounced "Castro-Chavez"! ;D

Very decisive, and you spelled out all of your reasons why BHO isn't and doesn't. But I shaved my pacing vote due to a few hiccups. Revisit my take on his Afghan surge at ~ellafitzgerald47 (my "The Decider" was bumpy; your "undecided" is better).

Agreed, a few. I wanted to use the Ames Brothers version, but there were WAY too many variations and twists. ;D

I'm indecisive... about what's wrong with this parody: The incorrect premise or its failure to be funny. It was okay for Reagan to go after Khadafy, and it was okay for Dubya to go after Saddam, but it's not okay for Obama to go after Khadafy? What am I missing here? Oh yeah, the endorsement of the Republican Party.

Michael - It's ok. Your reflective responses are always welcome here. As Lloyd Bentsen almost said, "I KNEW the one bomber, and you, sir, are no one bomber!". ;D

OK - A follow-up. Michael - let him say what the mission is. My Bush (41), although unpopular, said freeing Kuwait was the mission. In my dark moments, I sometimes think the son went wild west...I'm gonna get the man who wanted to get my father! Michael, I understand the way you think. Call me moderate...but don't call be late for last call. :)
