    Obama Gangsta Style - Lyrics for Video Contest

    I looked up both the Mitt Romney Style and Obama Style parody videos
    by collegehumor and Eric "Smooth-E", but did not think either of them was funny.

    I wrote my own lyrics (linked above), but when I share them with friends,
    my conservative friends get the Constitution but take it so seriously they get what I'm saying but don't necessarily think it's funny. Do any liberals out there, Obama supporters,
    think this is funny -- to make fun of the President coming across as an arrogant
    clueless Chicago gangster who can write whatever law he thinks will serve political purposes at the expense of the Constitution and taxpayers? Or even as a spoof or crack at Republicans exaggerating the worst fears and image that Conservatives HAVE of Obama? I thought someone might see the irony in some of these same things were said of Bush overriding the Constitution. Anybody?

    Please post feedback and explain your background and leanings and what
    you see in this, if it's funny or ironic, or mean or unfair or what. I'd like to know how
    different ppl from different political perspectives see the humor and caricature here!

    I will try to produce it as a music video in the future, right now it's just the lyrics.
    Thanks!

    "Gangsta Style"

    Obama Gangsta Style
    Gangsta Style

    Under the Constitution I don't need to follow
    There's something called the Bill of Rights that I just rendered hollow
    I'll make you pay for health-care so we all end up on welfare
    I have no - clue - and I don't care

    I'm a Socialist
    Instead of teaching equal independent business sense
    I'll take our greatest wealth and waste it till we're penniless
    While I retire at your expense, cuz that's what justice is
    To this Socialist

    Fourteenth Amend-ment
    Equal Protec-tions
    Aren't for rich folks NO
    (Don't need their votes) NO

    The NRA and
    Second Amend-ment
    Can kiss my throne
    Cuz I've got drones
    Chicago ethics are the only way to go go oh hell no

    Obama Gangsta Style
    Gangsta Style
    O O O God No Obama Gangsta Style
    Gangsta Style
    No No Just Say No
    No more Gangsta Style

    Hey, A-C-A sux
    O O O O bama Gangsta Style
    Hey, A-C-A sux
    No No Hell No (A-C-A Go A-way)

    Judges and Courts, should be equally defending
    Best interests of ALL people that the State is representing
    Consensus takes too long when half the Nation is dissenting
    So my own - laws - I'm inventing

    I'm the President
    I'll issue orders without voting if you don't consent
    Silly checks and balances through Congress are a detriment
    Why keep a contract with the people and the government
    I can circumvent

    The NRA and
    Second Amend-ment
    Can suck my bone
    Cuz I've got drones

    Fourteenth Amend-ment
    Equal Protec-tions
    Aren't for you folks
    Your law's a joke
    And-I'll laugh from my Hawaii Retirement Ho ho ho ho home

    Obama Gangsta Style
    Gangsta Style
    O O O hell No Obama Gangsta Style
    Gangsta Style
    No No Just say No
    No more Gangsta Style

    Hey, A-C-A sux
    O O O O bama Gangsta Style
    Hey, A-C-A sux
    No No Hell No (A-C-A Go A-way)

    Look inside, the Texas Bill of Rights:
    People have authority that's where the law resides
    Exercise, your First Amendment rights
    Not to follow some regime you don't believe is right

    You can save the Nation
    No more Gangsta Style

    Hey, A-C-A sux
    O O O O bama Gangsta Style
    Hey, A-C-A sux
    No No Just Say No
    No to Gangsta Style
    No More Gangsta Style

    Not funny.

    Reeks of the same sadness that surrounds Truthmatters.
