Funny, because I believe JoCo was a big supporter of Obama, so if in the year 2005, we're out of money under Bush, I wonder what he would write for Obama's first or second terms?

There's an updated version with Obama, but the lyrics have varied. At first it was ''Obama's been pretty excellent so far,'' later it was ''Obama has a peg-leg and a scar.''

wonder what the song would have said about Obama..

@erycduhart0 0 9 Animaniacs had their presidents song WAY before this. I wouldn't say the songs are close enough for one to be based on the other, but I wouldn't be surprised if Coulton was inspired to write this by the Animaniacs, he seems like he would be a fan.
