Waterloo Lies

Back in July, South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint bragged about Republican plans to “break” Obama. How? By killing health care reform, turning health care into Obama’s “Waterloo.”

So it’s no surprise that the President’s foes are wielding the Big Lie in their non-stop efforts to block reform. Or that their lies target the elderly, scaring them into thinking Democrats intend to mandate elder-euthanasia.

This brings me to my latest limerick, Waterloo Lies:

Waterloo Lies
By Madeleine Begun Kane

The GOP’s spreading big lies
To ensure that our health reform dies:
“The bill will kill gran —
Shorten seniors’ life span.”
Their goal? Cut Barack down to size.

    The GOP has not the truth
    They resent Obama’s dark skin and youth
    “If Jesus was here
    Would He have a beer?”
    They think that compassion’s uncouth

    And now, since some of their lies are, at long last, beginning to be debunked, they’ve turned to simply hiring people to shout down any attempt to seriously discuss the issue. I think the tactic will eventually backfire — but that may be too little, too late. They’re stalling until they can buy or bully just a few more Senators to deliver the pro-corporate “reform” package they want.

    ‘Tis not to the smart, or the fast,
    That the race goes — that’s all in the past.
    With arguments mustered,
    You’ll only get flustered;
    It’s who shouts the loudest, and last.
