Reid to Obama Hell No on TPP

I would be first to admit that the issues surrounding TPP I have yet to digest
But based on how the talks with Iran under Kerry have progressed
With an administration clouded in secrecy with all cards close to its chest
If I were a Senator there is no way I would accept Obama’s fast track request
In his waning days in the Senate, Harry Reid finally realizes a Senator is not a president’s lap dog
Too bad it has taken this long for him to come out of the back-Obama-at-all- costs fog
Trade issues in the Pacific Rim are in an understatement quite complex
With claims of more U.S. lost jobs and currency manipulations to the U.S. vex
It would appear Reid has told this president on fast track it will be hell no
No longer will he be leashed and trotted out for Obama’s dog and pony show
Pelosi still seems to toe the Obama but her fellow Blues no longer all follow her lock step
Hillary is running from her husband’s positions and indicating to Obama that on supporting  his positions she  has paid her debt
Do not cry for Obama as the Blues dessert him faster than parachutists jump from a plane over the drop zone
For six years this aloof, narcissistic leader has isolated from Congress on both sides of the aisle with only a rare conciliation bone
Sadly, as his liberal use of the term “bucket” generates lots of laughs
For the next twenty months from this “lame duck,” this country is going to be getting the shaft
