HOW DO YOU SOLVE 
A PROBLEM LIKE OBAMA?



Now, play the video again, 
and imagine those delightful girls 
singing THESE words:


He climbs a tree and scrapes his knee, 
But tailoring hides the tear. 
He showboats on his way to church, 
But turns deaf when he’s there. 
And just beneath his bright white smile
His spirit’s filled with bile.
I know he plans to leave us in the lurch.
He's rarely in his chapel,
But his piety is real
He's never heard a thing
His pastor said with hate-filled zeal
I do not like to say it
But I very firmly feel,
Obama’s not a credit to our country.

I cannot say a word on his behalf.
All Obama makes me feel is consternation 
With his puppy-friendly mask for castigation,
And he never ever makes me want to laugh.

How do you solve a problem like Obama?
How do you catch a lie and pin it down?
How do you find a word that means Obama,
A richly bombastic, demagogic clown?

Many a thing you know you'd like to tell him;
Many a thing he ought to understand.
But how do you make him stay,
While you teach him how to pray?
How do you keep secretions in a gland?

Oh, how do you solve a problem like Obama?
How do you hold hot air inside your hand?

When I see him I'm perplexed
Dyspeptic, tense and vexed
And I never know exactly where I am
He’s inscrutable as fog
Yet he keeps us all agog
Is he a darling, or a demon, or a sham?

Oh, how do you solve a problem like Obama?
How do you hold hot air inside your hand?
He can drown out any sage;
Folks think he’s all the rage,
For he’s thrown a cloud of sand 
Into their eyes.

Is he gentle? Is he wild?
Enigmatic? Just a child?
A headache? An angel?
Or the Devil in disguise?

How do you solve a problem like Obama?
How do you catch a lie and pin it down?
How do you find a word that means Obama,
A richly bombastic, demagogic clown?

Many a thing you know you'd like to tell him
Many a thing he ought to understand,
But how do you make him stay,
While you teach him how to pray?
How do you keep secretions in a gland?

Oh, how do you solve a problem like Obama?
How do you hold hot air inside your hand?

  2. Sadly enough threre truly is a great deal of hot air in American politics as well as governance. It is to be found wherever you see the donkey and elephant playing the American electorate like fools.

  4. Well, friends, I thought it was high time someone injected a little humor into this grim, tight-lipped political season.

    We've had none of it from either candidate or from their promoters, apologists and critics.

    I love satire, and making an effort to create a bit of it now and then resolves a lot of tension -- in me. If you enjoy it too, God bless you!

    Cheers!
