Barack, the Populist

Obama’s latest pose was unveiled at his “town hall” performance in Elyria where two dozen times he promised he’d “never stop fighting” for us. (It should be noted that he also said: “But this isn’t about me” and then proceeded to use the personal pronoun and refer to himself in the third person as “Obama” more than 70 times — 4% of his speech.) Obama also ad-libbed that if all he wanted was to be popular he would do nothing at all and he would be loved. Truer words may never have been (unintentionally) uttered.

Barack, the Populist 
By Asher Embry

Will Barack, the Populist, come to town
Driving a pickup like the real Scott Brown?
Clinging to antipathy, guns, and God?
Calling-out elitists like Kerry and Dodd?
Taking the side of the Cambridge cops?
Spurning arugula for other crops?

How can Obama with his turned-up nose
Hope to get away with this of-the-people pose?

It’s a New Populism, Obama-style;
The kind that he’s been practicing all the while:
What the people want, Barack doesn’t heed;
‘Cause he will decide what the people need.

He’s “angry” and “fighting” and “feisty” too.
“No bedwetting” from Barack’s rabid crew.
But by bashing business O quickly will see
That his “populism” mauls the economy.
The more he does, the more it’s clear
That this “man-of-the-people” has a cast-iron ear.

He’ll “fight for you” and we’ll see when he’s done —
How many more Conservatives have run and won.
