A few days ago I commented on a Facebook post, “Obama doesn’t want to be President, he wants to be Rock Star.” Now, I realize I didn’t invent that statement as I have seen it in print many times. But after typing it I realized that his life in many ways mimics the song by Nickelback, “I Want to be a Rock Star”. So I started looking at the similarities. Obviously not all of the song applies but I think you will find it amusing just how much of it does.
I’m through with standing in line
At clubs we’ll never get in
It’s like the bottom of the ninth
And I’m never gonna win
This life hasn’t turned out
Quite the way I want it to be
(Tell me what you want)
Hmm – so I wonder how all of this started? It would seem that Barack Hussein Obama one day decided he wanted to be President and then later got his wish although for the life of me I do not know how. I am continually amazed that enough people were star struck enough to vote for the man.
Rush Limbaugh has said that although America might survive another 4 years of Obama, we will not survive another 4 years of being a country with enough who want him to be President. We cannot survive another 4 years of more and more Americans wanting handouts instead of earning their own money.
The Nickelback song continues:
I want a brand new house
On an episode of Crib
I’m not sure if the White House can warrant an episode of “Cribs” but MTV reportedly did offer up a cool $3 million for the opportunity. But Obama certainly did get a “new house”.
(Tell me what you need?)
I’ll need a credit card that’s got no limit
And a big black jet with a bedroom in it
Yep, Obama got the “credit card without a limit” (paid for by…) and the “big jet with a bedroom in it”. (We are on a roll here!)
‘Cause we all just wanna be big rockstars
And we’ll hang out in the coolest bars
In the VIP with the movie stars
Every good gold digger’s
Gonna wind up there
Every Playboy bunny
With her bleach blond hair
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar
As for “hanging out in the VIP with the movie stars”, here is a partial list of celebrities who “hang out” with and support Obama. (I’m not sure if there are any former Playboy bunnies on the list but there are definitely a few bleached blondes.)
Richard Dean Anderson, David Arquette, Alec Baldwin, Antonio Banderas, Jack Black, Jim Belushi, Nick Cannon, George Clooney, Jamie Lee Curtis, Robert Deniro, Danny Devito, Micheal Douglas, Will Ferrell, Jamie Foxx, Morgan Freeman, Whoopi Goldberg, Tom Hanks, Samual L Jackson, Micheal Keaton, Ashton Kutcher, John Lithgow, Demi Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow, Al Pacino, Sarah Jessican Parker, Sean Penn, Julia Roberts, Ben Stiller, Jada Pinkett Smith, Will Smith, Sharon Stone, Jimmy Fallon, Sinbad, Wanda Sykes, Steven Spielberg, Tyler Perry, Spike Lee, Bill Maher, Oprah Winfrey.
I want a new tour bus full of old guitars
My own star on Hollywood Boulevard
Somewhere between Cher and
James Dean is fine for me
Let’s see – Obama got his tour bus, Cher is definitely a liberal so if he got a star on Hollywood Boulevard (heaven forbid) he would absolutely fit right in next to her. And I like to think that if James Dean were alive today he would have the good sense to be a Republican.
(So how you gonna do it?)
I’m gonna trade this life for fortune and fame
I’d even cut my hair and change my name
Obama had an afro in college and he was called Barry…….are you seeing a pattern here?
I wanna be great like Elvis without the tassels
Hire eight body guards that love to beat up ….
I’m gonna dress my …
With the latest fashion
Get a front door key to the Playboy mansion
In my opinion he will never be “great like Elvis”, but it is obvious he wants to be the KING! Obama has been on Leno and Letterman and he has more than eight “body guards”. He went on THE VIEW but could not find time to meet with the Prime Minister of Israel. He may not have been to the Playboy Mansion but per Hugh Hefner: “I am a Democrat and have been since childhood. I am more than pleased to live to see a black man in the White House. I did vote for Obama. I would say, thus far, I am a little disappointed in terms of the Democrats in terms of what they’ve managed to accomplish — and not accomplish — over the last year.”
There is even a line in the Nickelback song that says…
Everybody’s got a drug dealer on speed dial
Obama has alluded to using marijuana and a little “blow” in his past. I personally do not want a President who freely admits to drug use; instead I want a President who warns young people about the dangers of drugs and who leads our country with morals and values.
And the song continues…..
I’ll get washed-up singers writing all my songs
lip sync ‘em every night so I don’t get ‘em wrong
Hmmm – did that make you think of teleprompters?
No big revelations here, just a light hearted look at a song and our President. But seriously folks, do you want to be ruled (and yes I said “ruled” because your Mr. President wants to be a dictator) by a man whose life sounds like a rock and roll song?
Hey hey I wanna be a rockstar…
