"It's Obama's Fault," In Rhyme

If one believes nay-saying conservatives:

It's Obama's fault for Palin's son's PTSD,

For hair loss, acne, and the sting of a bee.

It's Obama's fault for poverty, hunger, and disease,

When we are hot, and when we freeze.

It's Obama's fault for ISIS to rise,

And for all his oh too many lies.

It's Obama's fault for Syria's homeless,

Because of him, that country's a mess.

It's Obama's fault for Taliban terror,

Yes, it's his fault and his fatal error.

It's Obama's fault for Middle East wars,

And for all our students' failing scores.

It's Obama's fault Iran split the atom,

And for America's slide to rock bottom.

It's Obama's fault for North Korean bombs,

And for all the terrorist alarms.

It's Obama's fault for Russia in Ukraine,

And for the rain on the plain in Spain.


It's Obama's fault for invaders on our shores,

These raping, conniving, trespassing hoards.

It's Obama's fault for increasing interest rates,

And for shifting economic tectonic plates.

It's Obama's fault for the burst housing bubble,

In fact he's responsible for all our troubles.

It's Obama's fault when oil prices soar,

And his fault when crude hits the floor.

It's Obama's fault for deficits in world trade,

And because things are no longer American made.

It's Obama's fault for the war on Christmas,

And it's his fault for all of the fracas.

It's Obama's fault for unsafe streets,

And for too few cops on the beat.

It's Obama's fault for cities going under,

And when thieves pillage and when they plunder.

It's Obama's fault when planes fall and cars crash,

When the Earth shakes and lightning bolts smash.

It's Obama's fault for heat waves and drought,

And when fires, cyclones, and floods do mount.

It's Obama's fault for bridges and roads failing,

And whenever we encounter any bad sailing.

It's Obama's fault for Flint's water pollution,

While he's been swimming in his delusion.

It's Obama's fault for contaminated air,

With his head in the clouds and his elitist flair.

It's Obama's fault when our sports teams rank last,

Now because our best days have long since past.

It's Obama's fault when there's no solution,

The fault lies in his evil collusion.

It's Obama's fault for the state of the states,

And whenever anyone in America gains weight.

It's Obama's fault for terrorist plots,

And when any and all good food rots.

It's Obama's fault when lovers leave,

And anytime that we must grieve.

It's Obama's fault for Hilary's laugh and Joe's gaffs,

For Bernie's hair and Martin's stare,

For Harry's moods and Nancy's attitudes,

For Debbie's action and Chuck's passion,

For Keith's religion and John's activism.

It's Obama's fault that Congress won't work.

The reason being that Obama is a jerk.

It's Obama's fault for Obama care,

For anything and everything that's not fair.

It's Obama's fault when stocks do fall,

In fact, it's Obama's fault that we have faults at all.

But I don't believe what conservative cynics say,

Because Obama has made us safer, more productive, and better during his stay.

Thank you President Barack Obama!
