And forget about the simplistic tune of this singsong piece, which makes a commercial jingle sound like the opening movement from “Carmina Burana.” Songwriter David Michael Ruddy probably was in a hurry.
What’s important is that the “future children” song reveals the incredibly immature and emotional thinking of those on the political left. There are no broad ideas conveyed. No references to the tenets of our system of government — things like freedom and liberty, the pursuit of one’s destiny, or even a love of country that might inspire a voter one way or another.
Instead, it’s liberal fear-mongering set to an irritating tune. To wit:
Find a park that is still open
And take a breath of poison air
They foreclosed your place
To build a weapon in space
But you can write off your au pair
It’s a little awkward to tell you
But you left us holding the bag
When we look around
The place is all dumbed down
And the long term’s kind of a drag

Just don’t sip your coffee before it starts or you may snarf it out again, and the dang tune may get stuck in your head, but this Obama anthem is good for a laugh, that’s for sure.
With less than a week to go until Election Day, who couldn’t use a giggle?
