The poet William Stafford set himself the task of writing a poem a day. When someone asked him what he would do when his poem-of-the-day wasn't very good, he replied "I simply lower my standards." In order to increase output, the bar here is set at a low level - the point of this is to have some fun with current events and politics. I welcome contributions and comments. Now you can also follow Doggerelo on Twitter (@doggerelo). Because of continuing medical problems, I'm no longer able to post a poem-a-day. I'll continue to post poems, but at a reduced frequency, so please stay tuned.

It's All Obama's Fault, Continued

Reince Priebus, the  chairman of the Republican National Committee, blamed Obama and the Democrats for forcing Republicans to defend themselves in the light of the a Republican Super PAC proposal to focus its attacks on ties between Obama and the incendiary preacher Jeremiah Wright.  .  It’s the Democrats and Barack Obama that want the story out there”, Priebus saidRomney has "repudiated” the proposal, as did John McCain in the 2008 election. 

The Chairman of the RNC has said
Obama seeks to throw us off the track
And so he wants to have this story spread
About the GOP’s new bold attack
Upon his former friend - this instead
Of asking why th’economy’s so slack.
If Republicans get blamed for this assault
It’s clear to Reince it’s all Obama’s fault.
