Oh Dear President Obama!

state of the union

Oh dear President Obama, I cannot thank you for that speech.
I’m hungry as can be and a home is out of reach.

Oh dear President Obama, that speech is getting old.
While you lie and make shit up, I’m out here in the cold.

Oh dear President Obama, didn’t you say we’d get a break.
Benefits are cut and the poor got no fair shake.

Oh dear President Obama, you said I need to work real hard.
But those who have no job, you and congress disregard.

Oh dear President Obama, my school was closed last year.
So flipping endless burgers will be my new career.

Oh dear President Obama, have you closed Guantanamo?
And how many foreign leaders do you plan to overthrow?

Oh dear President Obama, the military’s budget wasn’t cut.
The powers of the NSA, you didn’t really gut.

Oh dear President Obama, why did Wall Street get a pass?
You looked the other way when they fucked the underclass.

Oh dear President Obama, about that war on drugs?
Turkeys all get pardons while inmates just get shrugs.

Oh dear President Obama, you should think before you speak.
We see right through your lies, so go practice your technique.

…and no, I did not look at the SOTU because I refuse to listen to more lies. I read the text of the speech and of course, business as usual. Blah, blah, blah, blah.
“Work hard Americans, get an education, congress cares about you TONIGHT since we’re all here. Let me be clear, I am here to help you through these good times that we are having. The jobless rate is the lowest it’s been in years, businesses are hiring, and I am foaming at the mouth from lying, so please excuse me a minute. Joe, get me a big handkerchief, a really, really BIG handkerchief. And let’s continue to fund our military might all around the world. We’re ‘peacekeepers’ ya know!”

Well, that’s MY take!

    1. Skulz, you give turkeys all over the world, a bad name when you include them in with that batch of filthy ass political turkeys on capitol hill. I really have no idea why the American Bald Eagle is the national emblem or bird because it should be the Vulture and this explains why:



      a large bird of prey with the head and neck more or less bare of feathers, feeding chiefly on carrion and reputed to gather with others in anticipation of the death of a sick or injured animal or person.


      a contemptible person who preys on or exploits others.

      synonyms: predator, shark, vampire, bloodsucker, profiteer, racketeer, opportunist, extortionist

      Does that sound familiar?


  1. Oh come on Shelby, you did so watch the SOTU…wait, or maybe we’ve heard all of this before. And you should have heard the rebuttal, you would have had such great material to use, it was so sugary sweet that it was nauseating. They all need to go back to whatever hole they came out of and never come back as far as I’m concerned. Great post as always.


    1. Actually, Don, I did see it. The first time when Obama gave the SOTU speech, I saw it and it was almost word-for-word, I’m sure. Because I remember detecting a bit of spittle forming at the corners of his mouth even back then and I had the audacity to wonder at it, now I know why. But of course, back then, I was all wide-eyed innocence. Goddamn, I’ve had to grow up since then.

      And yes, you are so right, they need to crawl some damn where, preferably OUT of this country that they’ve managed to fuck up so royally. Nothing they do is for the benefit of the Average American citizen, so they are useless to US, in every single way!

      And thank you for the thumbs up on this one! Much appreciated!


    1. Scriberisms, all you need to know is that every single time a politician opens his/her mouth, they LIE!!! That’s pretty much it. Oh, and they are owned, lock, stock and barrel by the new plantations better known today as corporations. Yep, we’re still on the plantation, you know.


    1. Stuartbramhall, good on you! And as much as I hate to write this, I too, must throw my lot in with the stupid Americans because I voted for that lying, hypocritical, deceitful, two-faced bastard, not once but twice and I have since then most heartily regretted it as has so many people and for the same reasons. I was taken in, I admit and I should have known better.

      But here he comes all fresh-faced claiming to be against ‘dumb wars’ and many like me, were just sick and tired of endless wars and hearing about that patriotic bullshit, “you’re either with us or against us.” And unfortunately, many in the U.S. will not even give a third party even a glance much less a vote. When we ALL should know that the so-called two party filth we have is actually one and the same, the party of big business special interests and “bring me a briefcase filled with money and your wish is my command.” Many of us are aware that that’s how it is.

      So, once again, I must bow to your greater wisdom and common sense. I was bamboozled and sitting somewhere looking stupid with my rose colored glasses on and voting for evil incarnate. And now, as they say, we reap what we sow.

      Thanks Stuartbramhall for your comment!
