The State Of The Union Is We’re Tea Party Screwed

state-of-the-union

We were taught “From time to time,”
The Constitution demands,
The President lets congress know,
How things are in the land.
But if he’s honest ‘bout our status,
He will surely be booed.
Because the State of our union is,
We’re Tea Party Screwed.

Republicans have torn themselves,
Apart at the seams.
There’s a caucus that’s pro-money,
And a caucus that’s pro-mean..
Every time the Speaker compromised,
The Baggers refused.
So the State of the Union is,
We’re Tea Party screwed.

Our economy is trying,
Very hard to bounce back.
Housing is improving,
And the market’s on track.
Still they won’t take up a jobs bill,
In their ”Fuck Obama” mood.
So the state of our Union is,
We’re Tea Party screwed.

The War on Women rages on,
Fulfilling bold predictions,
That the states would end abortion,
Through impossible restrictions.
And The Please Don’t Hit Your Women Act,
Still hasn’t been renewed.
Because the State of the Union is,
We’re Tea Party screwed.

Gays are now allowed to join,
The wars this country fights.
But they can’t have on-base housing,
‘Cause their families have no rights.
The House still clings to DOMA,
And since that’s their attitude.
The State of the Union,
Is we’re Tea Party screwed.

Gabbby Giffords took a headshot,
Still they won’t restrict the guns.
Shoot babies in their classroom,
They say nothing can be done.
It’s no secret that our congress,
And the NRA collude.
Which means the State of The Union,
Is we’re Tea Party screwed.

Eleven million of our neighbors,
Don’t have papers for this nation.
They’ve been waiting 20 years,
To hear a plan for immigration.
But they won’t even pass the Dream Act,
Where the kids are excused.
So the State of the Union,
Is we’re Tea Party screwed.

They’ll send disaster aid to Tupelo,
But not to Jersey City.
There are Climate change deniers,
On the House science committee.
The contraception in Obamacare,
Made the Right come unglued.
That means the State of the Union,
Is we’re Tea Party screwed.

We’re now fracking solid ground,
We’ve got our drones in the heavens.
We haven’t had a budget passed,
Since around 2007.
Sequester didn’t work,
To cure the partisan feud.
So the State of the Union is,
We’re Tea Party Screwed.

So tonight Barack Obama,
Goes once more into the breach.
But don’t be late to tune him in,
You might just miss his speech.
Because there’s really just one sentiment,
That needs to be imbued.
The State of the Union is,
We’re Tea Party screwed.
