The Lyrics

I never thought that I'd think this way about a US President, but this one's recent actions show just what he meant when he promised a radical transformation of the nation. But he needs a second term to complete the task.
I'm snooty, full of specious lies,
For I'm Barack Hussein
Obama, counting travesties;
I love the new Red stain.
I tear apart America; [1]
God's dead, replaced by me,
And frowns my Hood on Motherhood [2]
As we declining be.

The Supreme Court my bill [3] would greet
In stern impassive dress.
Aft thorough airing, seemed defeat,
But crossed the Court's highest!
America, I'll swear (Allah)
To mend thine ev'ry flaw.
Next term thy whole I shall control;
Why quibble over law? [4]

So new and cool [5], I queers approved;
Been lib'ral, baiting strife,
Who more than self no country loved,
Nor mercy more than life. [6]
I'll share your wealth, America,
By government designed;
Till all success be tax-assessed,
And Romney's Bain be fined.

So futile was the pay-out scheme [7]
That siezed on dawning fears.
"Final disaster," cities scream, [8]
Done stimulus, arrears.
Now where be draw, America? [9]
Jobs fled apace, and ye
Stand drowned by debt to others, yet
I plea you'll vote for me.
[1] ... by race, wealth, income, religion, class ...
[2] His Administration promotes abortion, contraception and gay adoption.
[3] ObamaCare a.k.a. Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010.
[4] Refers to his Executive Orders and non-enforcement of the Defense of Marriage Act, immigrant deportation and voter intimidation or identification laws.
[5] As an Illinois Senator, and again in 2012, he supported gay marriage.
[6] He alone voted to permit killing a newborn that survived abortion.
[7] The 2009 Stimulus that promised to fund "shovel-ready jobs" but primarily went to public unions and "green" projects.
[8] Several now are seeking bankruptcy protection.
[9] Even undocumented immigrants are leaving.

A masterpiece, and closely matches the pace and vocabulary of the original. Best parody of the day, and for many days. I hope someone will record it.

Patrick: Thanks for the high praise. But be sure to accent "Supreme" and "Final" on the wrong syllables. Congrats on knowing all 4 stanzas of TOS.
I misspelled "seized", and would say "tax-oppressed" for "tax-assessed."

As to the message, of course, I'm on the other side, but for technical quality, pacing, and creativity, it's absolutely flawless

Thanks, AFW & RA. I'd change "Final" to "Fiscal" since bankruptcy isn't final.

If "Court's highest" is vague, try "Judge Highness" (John Roberts). It rhymes.

One could also perform this to "Amazing Grace" and "House of the Rising Sun", though not so effectively.

I'm a conservative and I even found this offensive. I guess that means I should give you fives.... ;)

Meriadoc: "The best defense is a good offense." It's the "Chicago Way."

Love it! What happened to the 5 million green jobs that BO said he'd create? Guess they're being "outsourced" to China.
