Barack Obama, and you tell me over and over and over again my friend...

The eastern world it is exploding
Russia's flarin', bullets loadin'
Ukraine will lose Crimea to rigged votin'
Nothin can be done and Putin's gloatin
But you tell me
Over and over and over again my friend
Ah you don't believe
People should be able to own guns

Don't you understand what I'm trying to say?
Can't you feel the fears I'm feeling today?
The world's in turmoil while we are running away
The Benghazi patriots are calling from the grave
Take a look around you BO It's bound to scare you BO

And you tell me
Over and over and over again my friend
Ah you don't believe
In the tenants of the constitution

Yeah healthcare's so bad, feels like Armageddon'
I'm sitting here just contemplatin'
How they'll twist the truth, you know the politicians
Handful of senators don't pass legislation
And nothing can be done about illegal immigration

When human respect is disintegratin'
This hope and change is just too frustratin'

And you tell me
Over and over and over again my friend
You can keep your doctor and even your old health plan!

Been almost 6 years since you were elected
You brought to the white house greed and corruption,
What government agency hasn't been infected?
You swore to get to the bottom of the VHA scandal
Though you say the vets should come first

Your actions dictate that you should be cursed
Of all your failures this has to be the worst.

And you tell me over and over and over and over again my friend
You didn't know 'til you read it, there was VHA corruption?

Ah, I do believe
We're on the eve of destruction!

Think of nuclear weapons in Iran and Korea
Then take a look around to Egypt and Syria
You leave here to golf for weeks in some place
But when you return it's the same old case

Your A.G, IRS, VHA and NSA, a national disgrace
You can bury your head but that won't save face

Race bait your neighbor but don't forget to say grace

And you tell me over and over and over and over again my friend
You don't believe there was a smidgen of corruption?

Ah, I do believe
We're on the eve of destruction!

When you said no need to worry, they're just JVs

Isis was building a caliphate in the Middle East
So much for American blood and treasure
Sacrificed for nothing save your golfing pleasure

First ten, then twenty, now thirty thousand
Isis grows while we do nothin

Are we to wait ‘till they come for you and me?

And you tell me over and over and over and over again my friend
You don't believe we need to lead their destruction?

Ah, I do believe
We're on the eve of destruction!

Iran and their Mullahs can't be trusted
Netanyahu speaks and your plan is busted
You try to sell out our ally Israel
When you should be threatening Iran with hell

To agree to a path to get the bomb
Nothing on earth could be more dumb

While the Mullah's set about to spread the Harj

And you tell me over and over and over and over again my friend
You don't believe the threat to Israel is existential?

Ah, I do believe
We're on the eve of destruction!

Ah, I do believe

We're on the eve of destruction!

Encore? Well OK...

AWWWWWE OOOOOOBAMALONEY

Lennon said he wrote this song about himself, little did he know...

Dragnet Lecture to Obama

Remember media hullabaloo about Bush's gaffes?

Does the media focus on only conservative gaffes?

What if you put Obama's gaffes in George Bush's body? Are the gaffes more persuasive or is it the persona?

Watch this cartoon and decide

Interesting version of Eve of Destruction, one of my favorite old songs. The politics doesn't bother me one way or the other, I'm not American.

Very funny parodies on both songs! It also appears that Barack Hussein Obama and his entire administration is a parody on the office of the President of the United States!

Yep, If Washington be the father of our country, surely Lincoln is its stepfather. But Obama's legacy in the end will be nothing like the Father of the Country (I cannot tell a lie) or like Lincoln, the Great Emancipator or even the Father of Hope and Change but will end up being The Great Huckster (who cannot not tell a lie).

If you liked those parodies check this old one out http://hubpages.com/politics/The-bologna-has-a-fir...

What a fantastic set of parody songs! With permission, I'd like to copy these lyrics and sing these at our next conservative gathering. People need to wake up to the damage this man is causing. Voted up!

Your comment is exactly what the Fog Prince said above. I'm a fan of his. Be my guest Bernie. They aren't exactly totally original. We've all had a lot of fun with them at gatherings. Maybe you can find a talented virtuoso who can perform "eve of destruction" for us or if you are it, make a video and put it here, or on youtube.

Hey y'all, Check it out, the VHA scandal merits another verse to "Barack Obama's "Eve of Destruction"! Can't someone put this to music?

Course we know he is a very calculating and adept man implementing a plan flawlessly. People think Barack Insane Obama is golfing, but in reality he is doing rituals...nice post, always good to express the inexpressible.

Mostly miscalculating and inept I'd say looking at the results. btw it is Barack (who is sane?) Obama

Well, the whole point of deception is to make everyone think he is a bumbling fool, when in reality he knows exactly what is going on, and is very much in agreement with it. Btw it's Barry Obama Sinclair Bonaparte.

Well this "eve of destruction" is becoming a never ending song. The JVs it seems have given us another verse just added! Isn't their anyone out there with the guts (and talent) to perform this ode to Obama?

Just added another verse, can't wait 'till this song has an ending, just a little less than two more years, we hope.

tsad, this post is real cool and absolutely brilliant. I have saved it to my favorites so I can read it over-and-over -- and the reason why I want to do that is, this is one of those brilliant literary works that one has to study, in order to absorb the full meaning.

AS I keep telling people; Hey FOOL! someone has to write the checks to pay for this idiots excessive spending and for his uninformed and misdirected decisions.

We can all hope that whoever is elected to be in the White House will actually be an AMERICAN rather than a closet Islamist lover, a patriot rather than a coward, and a MAN who stands erect rather than bending over to leaders of other countries.

We can only hope!
