    Dear Mr President

    Advertisements
    Okay so I was just introduced to this song about 20 min ago by a friend.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-8bar2homQ
    There are so many vids. I choose this one because it's just the song and lyrics.

    My friend says that this song is so valid and an eye opener.
    To me it is sad and shows only bad view points and not good things that go on in our Country.
    My mom listened and said that it sums up everything.
    DB says he hates this song because "Bush has done so much good things"



    Your view?


    (Putting here because I am not sure how people will take this.. so best to be in a section where if a debate does happen it is safe)

    I woke up and fell into this dream
    Happily ever after just took time
    Once upon this broken heart of mine

    this is the way a fairytale feels
    This is the way I know it's real
    'Cause this is the way a broken heart heals

    I love the song. And even tho I am far from a Bush supporter I'm not sure I agree with her entirely.

    I personally like this song a great deal. Please don't blast me for it. I guess that it just sums up what I think people in politics think- not just Bush. I think that sometimes we pass over the people who need our help. I've spent too many summers working on impoverished reservations and in slums to be ignorant to the poverty levels in some of these areas and the poor education systems that keep area kids in the same hell hole to repeat the circle. I'm not saying we give out money to every man, woman and child, but to those who are truly trying to make an honest living for themselves and their family.

    "Dear Mr. President"
    (feat. Indigo Girls)

    Dear Mr. President,
    Come take a walk with me.
    Let's pretend we're just two people and
    You're not better than me.
    I'd like to ask you some questions if we can speak honestly.

    What do you feel when you see all the homeless on the street?
    Who do you pray for at night before you go to sleep?
    What do you feel when you look in the mirror?
    Are you proud?

    How do you sleep while the rest of us cry?
    How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye?
    How do you walk with your head held high?
    Can you even look me in the eye
    And tell me why?

    Dear Mr. President,
    Were you a lonely boy?
    Are you a lonely boy?
    Are you a lonely boy?
    How can you say
    No child is left behind?
    We're not dumb and we're not blind.
    They're all sitting in your cells
    While you pave the road to hell.

    What kind of father would take his own daughter's rights away?
    And what kind of father might hate his own daughter if she were gay?
    I can only imagine what the first lady has to say
    You've come a long way from whiskey and cocaine.

    How do you sleep while the rest of us cry?
    How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye?
    How do you walk with your head held high?
    Can you even look me in the eye?

    Let me tell you 'bout hard work
    Minimum wage with a baby on the way
    Let me tell you 'bout hard work
    Rebuilding your house after the bombs took them away
    Let me tell you 'bout hard work
    Building a bed out of a cardboard box
    Let me tell you 'bout hard work
    Hard work
    Hard work
    You don't know nothing 'bout hard work
    Hard work
    Hard work
    Oh

    How do you sleep at night?
    How do you walk with your head held high?
    Dear Mr. President,
    You'd never take a walk with me.
    Would you?

    I like the song a lot but then again I listen to James McMurty and his stuff is a whole lot more in yo face then even this song.

    I'm watching heroes right now () but I read the lyrics Green~mammy put up... I really like the lyrics... no, it doesn't show the GOOD side to the president... but right now, our country wants CHANGE... our country isn't happy with the bad... and feels it outweighs the good.

    I think any good Bush has done is far outweighed by all the crap he has put us through as a nation, and especially as military families. I believe a lot of it was unwarranted.

    That being said, the song comes off like a junior high girl's journal entry...I think it's lame.

    I agree with both of these.

    i think you just summed it up

    i personally think that govement needs to get of its high horse and turn this county of ours around... better our economy, healthcare, education, work force and get on board with alternative ways of "fueling" this nation and remove us from foreign depencany.

    there are some many ways of proving america with the electicity and gas that we need... come on there is nothing wrong with supporting our nations farmers with proper wages and inturn use the surplus crop to turn it into use fuel to power many of our products we use daily... there is nothing wrong with finding techonolgy that will co-exist with the use of corn oil....

    sorry i get flustured talking about policits,... cuz to those big oil companies and shareholder its all about the MONEY!!!! they rather make a pretty buck than help our economy... its sad and
