Obama's Credit Card Declined Nation's Next?

Highly symbolic that the President’s credit card was declined
While the nation’s credit continues to decline
Not from over limit or identity theft but for lack of use
A problem not faced when using the nation’s credit reeling from deficit abuse
Fortunately the Selective Service that would for the President a bullet take
Did not have to pass the hat for the President’s dinner and cake
Leave it to the women who manage far better a family’s purse
Michelle whips out a card to the embarrassment reverse
The meal is paid for and the President stays out of the kitchen washing plates
Too bad as a little actual private sector work experience might improve his job performance rate
Wonder when the symbolism becomes reality in spades
When the Chinese stop buying our paper as our standing fades
This time there will be no lady waiting in the wings
To come to our aid and fresh credit availability bring.
