Limerick Ode To The New, Improved Obama

This devout progressive has been very hard on Obama lately … and with good reason. But the debt ceiling debacle, liberal anger, and sinking poll numbers seem to have woken him up. Suddenly, Obama is the new, improved, assertive, populist President. And many former fans are welcoming back the President they thought they elected.

So, am I cheering? Well, let’s just say I’m giving Obama guarded applause. For while I like some of his jobs and tax proposals, and I love his newly confident, aggressive tone, I’m not convinced that any of this will last.

And that brings me to my latest limerick:

Limerick Ode To The New, Improved Obama
By Madeleine Begun Kane

It fin’ly has dawned on Barack
That with lib’rals he’s lost lots of stock.
His base and foundation
Could be his salvation.
I just hope his new stance ain’t a crock.

  1. Oh, let’s give Obama some cred.
    He’s climbed from a strange political bed.
    He slept with his foes
    and lost all his clothes,
    but wears a Ted Kennedy suit now instead.

    “Meet the new boss, same as the old boss” If anyone in this nation believes that Obama will go against war criminals, bank fraudsters, the military and their contractors, the rich or any other conservative group, they are sadly mistaken. Obama is a bought and paid for conservative who was hired to give the conservatives everything they want and allow a black democrat to take the blame.

    Oh, I think this progressive stance by the President will last – until after the election.
