The Lyrics

I will now venture into that dangerous area known as "politics", where some of you have much more experience than me. A look at some of the criticism of W. In my opinion, some is well-deserved (e.g., for his spending) and some is not-so-well-deserved.
Many said that Saddam
Had these really nasty weapons
But no one is said to have lied
Except for Bush

There were men in the East
Who successfully attacked us
But we hardly fought back at all
'Til there was Bush

Then there was Enron and corporate crim'nals
They donate in large flagrant sums to both Pubs and Dems

In the year double-O
The economy was slowing
But the prez did not get the blame
'Til he was Bush

Then there was Enron and corporate crim'nals
They donate in large flagrant sums to both Pubs and Dems

Homeless were on the street
During all 8 years of Clinton
But I did not hear much at all
'Til there was Bush

'Til there was Bush

Forget the politics. I like parodies of show-tunes, and this one works! 5's

As one who enjoys both show tune parodies and flagrant Bush-bashing, I say kudos to you!

Perceptive parody. Unlike previous commenters, I do not consider this flagrant Bush-bashing. I think it cleverly puts Bush criticisms into perspective and suggests that those who criticize Bush and praise his predecessor are hypocritical. But I have to ask why you went with "Til there was Bush" instead of "Til Double Yew"?

Hmmm...some food for thought there, though his further build-up of offenses over the now-seven years of his reign should speak for themselves. As for you, 5-5-5.
