Presidential Election 2012: 10 Songs Dedicated to President Barack Obama

If Rick Scott and the Elections Department ever let us cast our ballots, we'll be electing a president tomorrow. The wait to see what the "country" has decided, is torturous. It's like pissing on a pregnancy stick and nail biting till you see that blue or red. 

Now, we're not endorsing anyone around here, but while Mittens has been campaigning full time, Obama's been running for office while still acting as prez. So, we thought we'd give him a little "the people care about you" post.  Well, they care about you, and hate you post. 

We know how much our president likes to sing at parties and that Michelle likes to Dougie, so we assembled a list of songs, both kind and cruel, dedicated to our current commander-in-chief. 

10. Obama Girl "Crush on Obama"
This lady may be as fickle as a fish flip-flopping fish out of that water up there, but she managed to get her face and booty all up in our computer screens by pretending to love Barack four years back. 

9. Sister Deborah's "Uncle Obama" 
There is absolutely no way this song is about President Obama. Like no way. But if it were, Michelle, watch out! These lil' lady from Ghana want his banana. And Barack, be careful, cause she's gonna feed it to her monkey. 

8. Hank Williams Jr's "Don't Tread on Me" 
Williams Jr has compared our black president Barack to Hitler -- yes, that Adolf-- but here he's singing that he's got common sense on his side, and he's set on taking back his country. Back to the place where rape can be legitimate and preexisting conditions leave you paying out of pocket for medial care.
