Obama's Picks? The Pits!
(Hard to make worse selections)

It looks like Obama's the best that we've got,
So how did he end up with Geithner and Summers?
Why are his picks almost always the pits?
From the bottom of each barrel he dredges up bummers.

Then not satisfied that he still had the worst,
He tried to bring back the first with whom we were cursed.
Fortunately Cantor and Cruz have big "R"s tattooed on their backs
Or he'd also have signed up those Republican hacks.

The best way to upgrade the picks Obama will need?
Why not let all states who desire to quickly secede?
Doesn't it say somewhere in the Constitution, our law of the land,
That foreigners can't play in the White House marching band?
