Obama's Razzle Dazzle




Give 'em the old razzle dazzle
Razzle dazzle 'em


Bailout the economy with trillions of dollars that once belonged to you or maybe would have been the earned dollars of your grandchildren.  Talk in somber tones of the inherited mess. 


Give 'em act with lots of flash in it
And the reaction will be passionate
Give 'em the old hocus pocus
Bread and feather 'em
How can they see with sequins in their eyes?


Be a guest on Jay Leno; have lots of TV appearances being certain to mention a glimmer of hope thanks to a paternalistic federal government.  Stop free speech on the radio and call it fairness. 

Razzle dazzle 'em
Give 'em a show that's so splendiferous


Meet with world leaders and criticize the United States whenever possible.  Of course they all will like us now.   Feed adoring media stories about the new dog.

Give 'em the old flim flam flummox
Fool and fracture 'em


While the folks are worried about jobs and keeping their homes; put limits on the rights of gun owners and take over the banking industry.

Give 'em the old razzle dazzle
Razzle dazzle 'em
Back since the days of old Methuselah
Everyone loves the big bambooz-a-ler


The federal government is just here to help, so free medical care to all.  Of course there is no such thing as free medical care, just good medical care and government run medical care.


Give 'em the old three ring circus
Stun and stagger 'em


Those who oppose abortion are, (all together now) Right Wing Extremists.  But don’t feel special, because the federal government also includes those concerned with loss of the second amendment right to own a firearm and anyone who opposes an oppressive, omnipotent federal government.

Give 'em the old
Razzle dazzle

Razzle dazzle 'em
Give 'em an act that's unassailable
They'll wait a year 'til your available!


Talk about Wall Street greed and never mention the federal government’s role in the financial crisis.  Can you say, Chris Dodd and Barney Frank?  We no longer have terrorism, just right wing extremists.

Give 'em the old
Double whammy

Daze and dizzy 'em
Show 'em the first rate sorcerer you are


Tell the adoring media pawns it is all done for the good but don’t mention that taxes will go up and up and up and job creation will go down down down.

Long as you keep 'em way off balance
How can they spot you got no talents?


Make millions of illegal immigrants citizens with all the rights of truly legal citizens and more rights than those who pay the bill.


Razzle dazzle 'em
