The Lyrics

Barack Obama continues to make excuses for failing to fulfill his 2008 campaign promises during his 43 months as president. TOS pleads for a lover to return; in 2012 he tries to keep fickle voters by demonizing opponents.
I've spun this strand, campaigning: I am not to blame;
I'm mending misbegotten, lame, dry plundered land. [1]
It's not my fault economy does strangely grind.
Without insurance each one's fined, like Romney planned. [2]

Forsaking pow'r will be far from easy;
I've grown so used to pure cheers,
I'll miss that old thrill,
And Chris Matthews [3] will
Blame race fear if I part.

But if you're blind as government bleeps liberty,
Then hurry, early-vote for me, and I'll once more stand.
[1] Refers to the whole nation, not just drought areas.
[2] He signed "RomneyCare" as governor of Massachusetts.
[3] This MSNBC host "got a thrill up his leg" whenever Obama spoke.

I'm still sort of a Dem, but I enjoy your writing style...especially since you do Sinatra, and a few of the oldies, too...

Obama can't run on his dismal record. I wonder if Chris Mathews is now singing, "The Thrill Is Gone".
