The Lyrics

Another try at a Xmas song parody... but had a tough time with both the lyrics and pacing...
Obama the Showman
Came to us from Chicago
Grass-roots organizer to Senator
With the White House as his goal

Obama the Showman
Told a fairytale, they say
He promised to bring change, but America remained
In decline from 2009 ‘til today

There must have been some deception
In those campaign promises he made
For when he began to take office
It was nothing but the same old charade

Obama the Showman
Was a liar (as) the Republicans believed
But the Democrats say he could lead and sway
Congress, with bullshit stories and… some oratory

Trumpety Trump Trump
Trumpety Trump Trump
Hammered Obama again (and again)
Trumpety Trump Trump
Trumpety Trump Trump
Was he really a US citizen???

Obama the Showman
Made his way into Black history
So he said, "I’ll run and we'll have some fun
playing with US democracy"

Down in the ratings,
Obama needed a distraction
Running to the CIA, as well as the military,
Ordered, "Kill Osama! Take action!"

He jumped for joy when Osama was found
Ordered Seal Team Six away
And when Osama was pronounced dead
He immediately took full credit that-same-day!!!

Obama the Showman
Started early with his new campaign
So he never appears sad, sayin' "I don't feel bad,
I'll be back again in 2013"

Trumpety Trump Trump
Trumpety Trump Trump
Quit his presidential run
Trumpety Trump Trump
Trumpety Trump Trump
Still, there are lots of Republicans

Obama won’t be back
No he won’t
No Way!!!
See you next year Obama!

Even the pacing was bad, so this score is on merit. Let's see, economy growing, jobs being created (admittedly, not fast enough, but they're coming), health coverage for over 30 million previously uninsured Americans, Iraq War ended, Osama bin Laden killed... That is NOT an America in decline. And he was born in Hawaii and proved it, sucker. Seriously, Robert, if you want to fill Malcolm Higgins' shoes, at least be funny. He was. Much of the time.

First of all, how could Obama remedy in 2 years all the abuses, decline and corruption of 20? Yes the economy is still in rotten shape but it has been for over 10-15 years or more. It's going to be a long time before we're out of the woods totally but the auto company bailouts have kept things from getting worse. Yes bin Laden is dead, he was the real enemy. I don't care who the prez is that gets the credit but Obama did in 2 years what Bumble-Butt wouldn't do in 8. As for Obama being a showman that he is. He's got the smarts, the finesse and the charm for the job. That doesn't necessarly mean that he's honest and good 24/7/365 ( just what IS this Libya biz about, anyway?) but a master showman he is. Just like you did a masterful parody of a great Christmas TV tradition.

The Prez is a one-term loser. I wonder where Mike lives not to experience the on-going recession- oh yeah, Jersey. Guess there's really no difference!!!
