Mr. President Please Don't Kill Grandma

Sing along to The Waterboarders wonderful rendition (hehehe) of this years #1 Republican campaign theme song.

Primary season is in full swing and while the Republican front runners are busy exposing each others uniquely unelectable qualities, sooner or later a winner will emerge from this mess and turn their sights on the true foe of all that is right and good about Real America. Then once they're done with Michael Moore, I'm sure they'll get around to the obligatory attempt to “Swift Boat” President Obama's rather healthy, some would say historic, list of accomplishments.

Watching the endless Republican debates has been like watching the longest season of Big Brother ever. From Wikipedia: “Despite derision from many critics, the show has been a commercial success around the world. The voyeuristic nature of the show, in which contestants volunteer to surrender their privacy in return for minor celebrity status and a comparatively small cash prize, has attracted much scorn.” Sounds to me like an apt description of this debate season although the cash prize is no doubt much more lucrative.

With all of that in mind it is next to impossible for us health care loving, food stamp eating, environmental Marxists not to get a bit over confident in President Obama's chances for reelection. Me? I'm still enough of a Capitalist to not be above cashing in on the situation so I've written what may be the perfect Republican campaign song for the general election. In the tradition of all politicians everywhere, I am open to the highest bidder:

 

Mr. President Please Don't Kill Grandma (as performed by The Waterboarders)

Intro:
The President waived from the podium
The crowd gave a triumphant cry
As he turned to step from the platform
A sad little girl caught his eye

The little girl tugged at his coat sleeve
The President bent lower to hear
On her tip toes she pulled herself closer
And whispered these words in his ear.....

Chorus:
"Mr President, please don't kill grandma
Keep your socialist hands off her guns
You're a Moos-i-lum, terrorist Nazi
You smoke and you dress like a bum"

"My teacher thinks you might be Satan
She says you kill babies with glee
And you're building camps in the desert
So you can re-educate me"

Chorus

"You apologized for being an American
You bowed to that Arabian Prince
You told the whole world we're not Christians
You even suck up to the French"

Chorus

"You were born in a foreign country
Like Hawaii, or maybe Japan
You tell lies about Global Warming
And ACORN is your biggest fan"

Chorus x2 (Everybody sing!)

My point exactly... thank you for pointing that out. One of our darkest hours is right now and so many people are blind to it.

That would be a great song!

Refute the following: The larger banks have repaid much (if not all in some instances) of the TARP money loaned to them. The reason behind their repayment was because of the stigma of being federally fed and becoming a pawn to the US Congress. However, much of the money used to pay back the TARP loan was, in fact, money loaned to them by --- THE US GOVERNMENT and ultimately the tax payer. The smaller companies paid the government back in part --- with shares of their companies (WHICH ARE WORTHLESS). Further, the market is now in turmoil because confidence in the US (and our downgraded world credit for the first time since its inception) and the confidence in US banking has been shaken which affects EVERY loan. The misery from TARP will be felt for decades.

Seal Team 6 killed Bin Laden. Saying the words "Do it" does not constitute action or lend credit.

Stimulus historic investments: green companies doomed to fail. Historic indeed

A battery company failed the other day... loans from the government. Basically government companies.

Great sense of humor, Brian! Is that you singing?? Thanks for the nice laugh on a Sunday morning. I could see this going viral....send it to Stephen Colbert!!

Obama care is unconstitutional and passed despite 70% of the US not wanting it. I guess thats an accomplishment .. .for socialism.
John Lynch January 29, 2012 at 04:48 PM
Don't ask don't tell was started by Clinton. My gay friends in the military (2 of them) both didn't want it repealed. To quote one of them "Who cares?"

Private Sector job growth is true... except its widely thought of as DESPITE Obama's policies, not because of so ...
Brian Crawford January 29, 2012 at 04:50 PM
John, I'm pretty sure you didn't complain when your guy stepped up to the podium on the deck of an aircraft carrier, in a flight jacket, with a huge Mission Accomplished banner behind him prematurely announcing the end of a mission that would drag on for another 8 1/2 years. It is well documented that Obama over rode the recommendations of his advisors who wanted to simply bomb Bin Laden's compound. The President had faith in the SEALS tactical ability to get the job done and he deserves credit for a courageous decision. Those are historical facts. Why can't you just say, "job well done".
John Lynch January 29, 2012 at 04:52 PM
Obstructionist Congress? He had a Super Majority for 2 whole years. Be serious.
Brian Crawford January 29, 2012 at 04:59 PM
Thanks Mary. That's all me. Sorry about the crappy recording, I actually wrote and recorded this 2 years ago when I first got my digital recorder, the engineering is pretty terrible. The instrument tracks, particularly the drums, are rudimentary at best. I've gotten much better with the machine. I really need to do another take.
John Lynch January 29, 2012 at 05:02 PM
Actually I believe I said the following when Bush did that "Ugg what the hell?" Supporting the Seal Teams is not the same as doing it. Had Obama been in office in 2001 Bin Laden would be alive and well. No sane person can refute that.
John Lynch January 29, 2012 at 05:04 PM
Your definition of courage and mine differ. His decision was not courageous. We are at peace with Pakistan and bombing a facility would have been a nightmare to clean up. Did he make the right call in allowing them to do their job? Yes. He made the right call. When Luke Skywalker calls you and asks if its okay if he kills the Emperor, you say yes. To say anything but yes would be insane.
Brian Crawford January 29, 2012 at 05:12 PM
<Obstructionist Congress? He had a Super Majority for 2 whole years. Be serious.> John, that simply isn't true. Obama has never had a super majority in the senate. In fact the 111th congress set a rather notorious record for the use of filibusters. They wouldn't even allow votes on routine appointments. http://www.nationaljournal.com/daily/majority-does-not-rule-in-filibuster-filled-111th-congress-20101216

Brian - Who controlled Congress from 2008-2010? Democrats. Did they have 60 votes in the Senate without a single Republican vote? Yes. Did House have a simple Majority vote in the House without a single vote from Republicans? Yes.
Brian Crawford January 29, 2012 at 05:20 PM
<Had Obama been in office in 2001 Bin Laden would be alive and well. No sane person can refute that.> I love wild speculation as much as the next guy, but how can you possibly conclude that? One thing for sure though, we wouldn't have bankrupted ourselves in Iraq while cutting taxes for the wealthy. Now THAT was insanity.
Brian Crawford January 29, 2012 at 05:29 PM
<Who controlled Congress from 2008-2010? Democrats. Did they have 60 votes in the Senate without a single Republican vote? Yes.> John, you simply don't have your facts straight. At no time were there 60 Democrat votes in the Senate during Obama's tenure. That is a stone cold fact.
John Lynch January 29, 2012 at 05:30 PM
We will have to set that aside I suppose. You won't concede that a Senator who was vocal against taking Al Quada to task for their actions the entire time Bush was in office can't be given credit for their demise at the end of a war that was essentially over when he moved in so I don't know where that can go.
Brian Crawford January 29, 2012 at 05:43 PM
<You won't concede that a Senator who was vocal against taking Al Quada to task for their actions the entire time Bush was in office can't be given credit for their demise at the end of a war that was essentially over when he moved in so I don't know where that can go.> Once again John, there is no truth in any of that. Obama was never opposed to taking Al Qaeda to task. Find one quote. He was opposed to the war in Iraq which had nothing to do with Al Qaeda. He called it a stupid war and he was correct. He said during the campaign that bringing Bin Laden to justice would be a top priority and that's exactly what he did. Tactical drone strikes have decimated Al Qaeda during his administration. If that were Bush you would have declared him Caesar by now. You called me a liar earlier today in another forum. I don't think you're a liar John, I just think you are tragically misinformed.

The song is funny.
John Lynch January 29, 2012 at 07:10 PM
Deepest apologies Brian. It was 59 seats and I was including Snow as a Democrat (which she is in all but title).
John Lynch January 29, 2012 at 07:21 PM
Obama - surge didn't work. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yAt6SoZbkE Obama - Afghanistan flip flopping - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGB_jQziUBU When it was Bush making those SAME decisions as President, Obama was outraged. Then he got in office and followed suit. Deny that.
Brian Crawford January 29, 2012 at 07:27 PM
Thanks Ned!
Brian Crawford January 29, 2012 at 07:45 PM
John, Iraq and Afghanistan are two entirely different conflicts. There is nothing inconsistent with opposing a surge in a stupid war like Iraq while approving a similar surge in Afghanistan. Although in retrospect I think Obama would admit that he was somewhat snookered by his Generals, which he later fired, into the troop increase there. His positions on Iraq and Afghanistan have been extremely consistent throughout his campaign and Presidency. The second video is intentionally misleading as the Senate testimony Obama is giving is against the war in Iraq, not Afghanistan. You'll notice they edited out any mention of which country he was talking about. There is no flip-flopping going on. This is a great example of the dis-information campaign being waged against Obama.
John Lynch January 29, 2012 at 09:01 PM
So let me get this straight. Obama, with ZERO military experience --- was SNOOKERED by Generals who have DECADES of experience? Are you telling me that the green, unblooded, never worked a DAY IN HIS LIFE Obama knows more about military conflict, engaging an enemy and about what should be done in a prolonged battle than our TRAINED, experienced and proven veterans? Dude... SHUT UP
Brian Crawford January 29, 2012 at 09:04 PM
<The misery from TARP will be felt for decades> While I think TARP was probably a necessary evil due to 30 years of Republican economic policy that resulted in "too big to fail", it is important to note that TARP was a Bush program and that oversight was virtually non-existent until Obama took office and immediately put his foot down. Since that time not only has much of the money been recovered there have been numerous prosecutions of TARP fraud.
Brian Crawford January 29, 2012 at 09:37 PM
I'll stand behind "snookered", I think it's the right word. Not only did those Generals have decades of experience, they also had political agendas and fiefdoms to protect. If you remember there was a great deal of heated deliberation around the Afghan surge. Obama ultimately, some say reluctantly, sided against his VP giving the Generals the benefit of the doubt. The original intent behind the Afghan War was to bring the perpetrators of 9/11 to justice, primarily Bin Laden, and to cripple Al Qaeda's effectiveness. This has been accomplished despite the surge and counter insurgency efforts. Everybody agrees it's time to come home, the sooner the better. As long as we have soldiers desecrating corpses and shooting civilians for sport, regardless of how isolated, we are only making relations with the Muslim world that much worse.
