The Lyrics

The "yes we can" man is having problems keeping campaign promises. I matched only the sound of the first lines in the German text of TOS. The first two lines of each stanza usually are repeated.
O tan Obama cannot bomb
The Tora Bora mountains.
Where Taliban and 'Qaidans fly
And wait until eleven's July.
O tan Obama cannot bomb
The Tora Bora mountains.

O tan Obama cannot harm
Homes or civilian targets.
He'd rather have disabled vets
Than damaged mosques and minarets.
O tan Obama cannot harm
Homes or civilian targets.

O tan Obama cannot calm
The fears within free markets.
Secured bondholders he will screw,
But never friend SEIU.
O tan Obama cannot calm
The fears within free markets.

O tan Obama cannot charm
Republicans in Congress.
So many bills are stalled today
For which he claimed we can't delay.
O tan Obama cannot charm
Republicans in Congress.
This is the eighth in my series of mutilated Christmas songs.

Your line about "rather have disabled vets, than bombed out mosques and minarets" reflects a problem American soldiers have faced since Korea. We are increasingly a land where the best among us are led by the worst.

OMR: Thanks, but the real question is, "How many Christmases are left?" Patrick: Yes, it's just PC (protect civilians) gone wild. 2Eagle: Why not? He claims the oceans will recede!

Hard-hitting and timely, as usual. :)
