Obama is a “Sham” Economist

Obama, the Sham Economist of Drowning


When our economy was going down Obama stole a lifesaver from a socialist yacht and told us he would keep us afloat.


He said that John McCain was too old to do

The American Crawl,

To help us swim out of recession from the rocks

Of our greed.


Right.  Like Obama was an economist. Left, he went in the direction of the broke communists.


He ran against a financial genius,


When our economy was a mess

And the people re-elected him,

Bankrupted in his rhetoric

Because stupid is as stupid votes.


Obama liked the morning prayers of the Moslems, those who had brought down the World Trade Towers and dropped the economy like London Bridges, falling down, my fair lady.


drowningObama, realizing that he was overpaid,

Hating and loving himself,

Recommended raising the minimum wage.

He didn’t care if he lost low end jobs like loose change

As long as he could be the champion of the poor,

Of nothing,

Of his consistent failure.


What did he know? He never had a responsible paying job outside of public disservice to his country.


I can forgive Obama.

Who isn’t willing to step on other people’s faces

To breathe the sweet smell of success?

His drama.

Our tragedy.



He wanted to be rich at our disadvantage. That’s kind of capitalistic in a bureaucratic greedy sense.


What I can’t forgive is you and you and you,

The voters who wrecked our economy in order to vote for a man

Whose one great success was stealing from us

In order to stuff his suit pocket

With an ideological silk scarf.


Send us an army of lifeguards.  We are leaking.  We are drowning. We are in debt up to our ears.
