Taking Advantage

June 21st, 2010

Inspired by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s criticism of Obama for “taking advantage” of the BP spill by calling for clean energy instead of continuation of our oil addiction.

McConnell says Obama is “taking advantage” of the spill,

Thus squandering all of that Republican good will.

If only Dems didn’t insist on making changes when things go wrong,

Then maybe we could all just get along.

Of course, Republicans also didn’t want to fix things when everything was “going well”

(I.e., when they were managing the country straight to Hell).

Where I come from, it’s good to learn from your mistakes,

And do your best to fix them, whatever that takes.

Mitch says America wants “sraightforward, practical solutions”

(Too bad he’s blocking so many continuing resolutions).

In World War II, America “took advantage” of the Holocaust to make Germany look bad,

Just the kind of opportunism that makes Mitch McConnell so mad.

The right-wing echo chamber is constantly making these kinds of attacks,

Like when Rushbo said Obama was taking advantage of Haiti to curry favor with dark and light skinned blacks.

Of course, “taking advantage” is something Republicans would never do.

I’d never suggest Bush did that on 9-11. Would you?


Here’s McConnell’s floor statement. (Don’t even get me started on the factual errors…).
