Shame on the Blues

Politicians of both parties too often view themselves above the law and common sense. Too many dollars at risk growing each week. Careers and pension no founding father would ever seek. We face the most important election since the Civil War....our economy sinks daily yet Blue diversion and distractions soar. The latest is the Akin's flap and the desire of the Blues to link.

Right out of the gate without hesitation, Akin was urged
By all Reds to leave the race and from the party purged
No politician from either party has the right to throw the first stone
Either Red or Blue, most have ethical or moral sins to atone
Either in prose or in iams it is impossible to find the words
To properly frame Akin's depravity and reason absurb
No woman should ever, period ever be subject to rape or abuse
Threads of civility fraying and torn loose
In a better world, men and women of conscience could force him to resign
And sever the false linkage design
Akin fool though he may be should not detract
From the serious discussion of issues that may keep us from ever coming back

If Biden's bio is correct in 1978 he was 26
He should remember the Steiger Amendment lowering taxes did the trick
Venture Capital investments in this country soared
New hires were coming through new companies' doors
Most were free of the faltering economy chains
Opportunities not cats and dog were in the falling rains
Maybe he has been in Washington too long
The hot air and need for his career have muted discourse that belongs
His brain cavity is a maze of smear attacks that always lurk
To allege Mitt will put blacks in chains makes me berserk
Words are more powerful than the largest stick or stone
Like about a 100 or more gaffs this one he really should atone
This is worse than the Blues alleging the Tea Party wanted Blacks hanging from trees with nooses around their necks
We all should after we hear this smear any other words from him into the trash can deflect
Ryan is one of the few politicians to cast a shadow from Diogenes' day time lamp
While Biden and Obama ignoring solutions to the issues continue their smearing attacks to ramp.

Another Biden Gaff

Joe Biden seems to have a disconnect between his mouth and liberal brain. We are all guilty of that from time to time--words exceed the speed of rational thought and we wish we could do a Ground Hog Day but edit the tape. Biden and Obama seem different; they are  incapable of apology or admitting mistake. The lastest gaff from Biden is his remark that Romney and his party want to put the audience,  mostly Afro-Americans back in chains. the good news is  Romney strongly lashed back; the potential bad news is that Obama if he has any intelligence will find a new vice president candidate.
Another Biden Gaff
Biden's latest gaff is like an Aretha Franklin song
But the tune, timing and the words were very wrong
To imply that Romney and Ryan want to put the Blacks back in chains
Is a racist statement to a person we should strongly disdain
This is a campaign on which there is no record on which to run
Worse, the smearing, distortion and lies have only just begun
We face issues that cry out for rational discourse and thought
Instead we face a campaign where discourse and civility has been fatally shot.
The office of President Obama continues to deface
So far from the 2008 Hope and Change face
In this never ending increasing sea of mud and lies
Before we throw up our hands and forever Obama's and Biden's actions decry
We are not a stupid people and will no longer listen to the smearing tunes
In November we will eject Obama and save this nation from further ruin
