A Pair of Limericks for a Pairless President

Unlike many of my fellow progressives, I never thought Obama was a liberal. But now I’m beginning to wonder if he’s even a Democrat. In any event, he certainly isn’t a leader.

Needless to say, I’m furious about the Bush tax cut extension deal Obama made with Republicans, and I’m glad that Speaker Pelosi is taking a strong stand against it.

Here’s a pair of limericks about Obama’s abject surrender to the GOP:

A Pair Of Limericks For A Pairless President
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Dear Obama, you’re being a heel
By making this terrible deal.
You’re acting the fool
With this “compromise” gruel
Which will damage our land’s commonweal.

Obama’s demeanor is frayed
He seems ornery, angry, dismayed.
Will he finally fight
The Republican right?
No, he’s mad at the Dems he betrayed.

    “Those who carp that I didn’t act forcefully,”
    Said the President, quite unremorsefully,
    “May forget that the name
    Of this Washington game
    Is to tack against headwinds resourcefully.”

    I wonder if smoking cessation is making him so cranky? After he referred to some Democrats as “sanctimonious” because of their veto on the tax cuts bill, I slammed my finger in a drawer. It was the finger I was pointing at the radio. It was not my pointer.
    Great limericks, btw. Love the play on forcefully!

    It’s great to see strong Republican leader Barack Obama arrying on the Bush era tax cuts and in two years it’ll be President Palin’s turn
