Fresh Out of the Deck: Obama's Mixtape for Romney
My Walkman is tight holmes, tight!
Here at County Grind we thought it wise to refrain from overt political leniencies during these electoral times. And we know how some of you think, that we're too flung one way or the other, and according to some elderly gentlemen outside of our favorite cafecito window, we're "un periodiquito izquierdizta".

However, since we only care about music (and maybe your clicks), we can take a jovial look into these past debates and share with you the recently dubbed mixed-tape that President Obama made for Romney. It's true! Obama's already known for his eclectic sense of music that borders on dashiki folk pop, and as Commander in Chief, probably gets juicier music gigs that we lowly scribes could only dream of. So here's a sample of what's "in the mail" for presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.
We'll of course post his retort once he dusts his hi-fi and gets to selecting.
10. Bruce Springsteen - "Born in the USA"
Because apparently, this question is still asked.
9. Abe Lagrimas Jr. - "The Nearness of You"
Ah, the seating arrangement at Lynn University was very, very intimate.
8. Bad Brains - "Pay to Cum"
Let's see who gets banned in DC for his folio full of bitches.
7. Johnny Cash - "Man in Black"
Turns out the man in black happens to be, well, black.
6. Simon & Garfunkel - "I Am a Rock"
An unmovable boulder, and we refer solely to his weight.
5. GG Allin - "Don't Talk to Me"
Hey, Floridians! Who's that in the photo next to GG?
4. Ice-T (feat. Brother Marquis) - "99 Problems"
We all know Obi kicks it with Jay-Z and they both know where the latter got his idea.
3. Stinkerbell - "Don't Fuck with Me"
Obi likes empowered women. Don't you? Oh that's right, the stork delivers us.
2. Bob Dylan - "Tangled up in Blue"
We thought he'd go with the newer "Pay in Blood" but we guess Obi bleeds blue.
1. Cee Lo Green - "Fuck You"
Because we all simply can't afford Ferraris. Whatever percent that is.
