Rhymes for the Times

There once was a man named Mittens
who said things like “no free rides for kittens.”
No one knew what next he might say,
but his handlers prayed it would not be on a slow news day.

There once was a man named Obama
who was not much for drama.
But each night he gave Republicans a fright
as they dreamed of his socialist agenda.

    There once was a man named Barry
    Who Tea Partiers find to be scary
    Because his politics are definitely pink
    And he has drowned the country in red ink.

      Obama calling Bush “unpatriotic” for running up $4 trillion in debt in 8 years. Obama has run up $5 trillion in 3 years.

      Bravo.

    There once was a sophist from Maine
    Whose musings were painfully strained
    Donned “conservative” wool
    Though no one was fooled
    Pity what’s become of shame

    Since I love Rudyard Kipling, I’ll have to chime in:

    There was once a Prez names Hussein
    Born in Hawaii–or so he claimed.
    He blamed Bush for all the bad
    Never admitted a wrong, not even a bitty tad

    Riffing on Magus…

    There once was a Prez named Hussein
    Who refused to take any blame
    “It is all Bush’s fault,” he said again and again
    It became his constant refrain

    There once was a man named Romney
    Who was a little bit bland, you see
    He did not drink, nor smoke, nor swear,
    Kind of like the Terminator.

    • Michael LaBossiere said, on July 4, 2012 at 12:51 pm

      The Terminator does swear.

      • T. J. Babson said, on July 4, 2012 at 1:24 pm

        I stand corrected.

        • Michael LaBossiere said, on July 4, 2012 at 2:45 pm

          Not at all-you said he was kind of like the Terminator. No analogy is perfect. Presumably the Romneynator is an early model and lacks the swearing upgrade added to the Cyberdyne Systems Model 101.

          The Obamanator can swear and and smoke bud, so he is presumably a Cyberdyne Systems Model 202, sent from a more distant future to destroy America.
