No You Can’t

Via Jesse Wendel at Group News Blog, Billionaires for Bush jam on the Obama celebrity video. Here’s the text:

…It was a creed, snuck into the founding documents that denied the destiny of a nation.

No, you can’t.

It was decreed by bankers and landowners as they marched our monopolies westward.

No, you can’t.

No you can’t stop our power and privilege.

No you can’t repeal our tax cuts for the wealthy few.

No you can’t heal this nation.

No you can’t end the war.

No you can’t.

No matter what obstacles stand in our way, nothing can stand in the way of the power of our power keeping us in power.

Status quo.

Now the hopes of the little girl who goes to a private school in Newport are the same as the dreams of the boy who parties in the clubs of LA.

We are not as divided as our portfolios suggest. We run this nation, and together we will stop this nonsense about writing the next great chapter in the American story with three words that will ring from coast to coast; from sea to shining sea —

No. You. Can’t.
