Ode to O

Rahm Emanuel said “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” President Obama never lets a public event go to waste. He inserted himself at the Superbowl and last night at the Oscars.  The Mideast can be boiling over, the economy plunging and strife breaking out across states, but the President found time to titillate Tinseltown.

Does he think we just can’t get enough of him? I’ve had enough of him and I bet most Americans agree with me.

Still, it was shocking that a president would stoop as low as the Academy Awards. He introduced the Best Song category. On tape, he mentioned that his favorite (because even this is all about him) movie song is “As Time Goes By” from Casablanca. He probably wouldn’t like these lyrics, though:

You must remember this,

A win is just a win, a high is just a high

The fundamental truths apply

Your pollsters lie.

And when the people boo

Believe it is at you

On that you can rely.

No matter what the future brings

As your time goes by.

Media and love songs

Never out of date

Libs full of passion

Jealousy and hate

Country needs Republicans

To give you a checkmate

In ’12 we will retry.

It’s still the same old story,

Left, right, law, God and glory

A case of do or die

The right will surely still survive

As you go by.
