THE BALLAD OF BUDDY ROEMER

The power elite feels no shame,
At excluding those who don't play their game,
If a candidate won't forward their every aim,
They insure that no one will hear his name.

Buddy Roemer is a hard-core reformer,
A Harvard MBA and a down home charmer,
Saving and creating jobs is part of his plan,
For fighting outsourcing and unfair trade,
Roemer is your man.

The Republican Party all reformers hate,
They barred Buddy Roemer from every debate.
Showing themselves power elite tools,
Each time Buddy qualified, they changed the rules.

Buddy Roemer is a hard core reformer,
A former governor and a down home charmer,
Ending subsidies and bailouts is part of his plan,
For closing tax loopholes, Roemer is your man.

Americans Elect held a nomination race,
They turned aside voters, Buddy still took first
place,
An out-and-out hoax? Perhaps a fat wallet?
They quit and kept Buddy's name off the ballot.

Buddy Roemer is a hard core reformer,
A former Congressman and a down home charmer,
Campaign finance reform is part of his plan,
For cleaning up politics, Roemer is your man.

The power elite feels no shame,
At excluding those who don't play their game,
If a candidate won't forward their every aim,
They insure that no one will hear his name.

Buddy Roemer is a hard core reformer,
A businessman, banker, and a down home charmer,
Slowly balancing the budget is part of his plan,
For jump-starting the economy, Roemer is your
man.

A note to Buddy Roemer supporters: While Romney might or might not be a good
president, Obama has clearly been a disaster. Please aim your efforts at Democrats,
if you must split the vote, let it be the vote of the Democratic Party. Signs to erode
Obama's support can be found in No. 159, "Protesting Obama."
