The Three Wise Guys

Posted: Updated:

We three sad Republicans are.

Thought we'd beat Obama by far.

Troop deployment

Unemployment

Should have meant au revoir

O O What a failure! What a bust!

Barry left them in the dust.

Lied and cheated

Still defeated

Guess they lost the public's trust.

Ryan had a new budget plan,

But his numbers just didn't scan.

Facts begrudger

Data fudger

Lied on how fast he ran.

O O What a failure! What a bust!

Barry left them in the dust.

Lied and cheated

Still defeated

Guess they lost the public's trust.

Rove induced the wealthy claque

To finance his Super PAC

In 17 races

Two first places

They want their money back.

O O What a failure! What a bust!

Barry left them in the dust.

Lied and cheated

Still defeated

Guess they lost the public's trust.

Romney ran a callous shell game

And Romnesia was the trick's name.

Flopping, flipping

Got a whipping

Has only himself to blame.

O O What a failure! What a bust!

Barry left them in the dust.

Lied and cheated

Still defeated

Guess they lost the public's trust.

The fiscal cliff is not very far.

The principals have started to spar.

If strife prevails

and all else fails,

Strap Boehner* on top his car**.

O O What a failure! What a bust!

Barry left them in the dust.

Lied and cheated

Still defeated

Yes, they lost the public's trust.
