Pr. Geo.'s Man Pens Obama Ode

Rosalind Helderman

During the day, Jeff Logan works as an administrator at the Prince George's County jail.

But in his off-hours, his passion is music. And lately he's turned to his music in an effort to elect Sen. Barack Obama president. Just one of thousands of such efforts you can find on the Internet on the Illinois-senator's behalf, Logan said he wrote his song in a couple of hours.

He plays all four instruments for the song, creatively titled "Obama." He sings on the track, along with friend and fellow Bowie resident Allison Prince.

You can listen to the song here.

"Hey everybody gather round, there's new leader in town, it is time America rebounds" the song beings. "From the prairie to the plains, aren't you tired of the same. Get up, get out, vote for the name...Obamaaaaa. Obamaaaaa."

Logan said he was looking for a catchy way to express his belief that the country needs change. He welcomes people to borrow the song and play it at political events, polling places, anywhere to drum up turnout.

"I didn't write it for monetary gain," he said. "I wrote it for political advocacy...He resonates with so many people. He's brought so many people into the process."

TO ALL MY FRIENDS…
LIBERAL OR CONSERVATIVE…
FYI only.

George Bush has been in office for 7 1/2 years. The first six the economy was fine.
A little over one year ago:
1) Consumer confidence stood at
a 2 1/2 year high
2) Regular gasoline sold for $2.19 a gallon
3) The unemployment rate was 4.5%
4) The DOW JONES hit a record high– 14,000 +
5) American’s were buying new cars, taking
Cruises, vacations overseas, living large!

But American’s wanted ‘CHANGE’! So, in 2006 they voted in a Democratic Congress and yes–we got ‘CHANGE’ all right. In the PAST YEAR:
1) Consumer confidence has plummeted
2) Gasoline is now over $4 a gallon
And climbing!
3) Unemployment is up to 5.5%
(a 10% increase)
4) Americans have seen their home equity
Drop by $12 TRILLION DOLLARS
And prices are still dropping
5) 1% of American homes are in foreclosure
6) as I write, THE DOW is probing another
Low ~~ $2.5 TRILLION DOLLARS HAS
EVAPORATED FROM THEIR STOCKS,
BONDS & MUTUAL FUNDS
INVESTMENT PORTFOLIOS!

YES, IN 2006 AMERICA VOTED FOR CHANGE…AND WE SURE GOT IT!

REMEMBER THE PRESIDENT HAS NO CONTROL OVER ANY OF THESE ISSUES, ONLY CONGRESS DOES.

AND WHAT HAS CONGRESS DONE IN THE LAST TWO YEARS?
ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

NOW THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT CLAIMS HE IS GOING TO REALLY GIVE US CHANGE, AND HE HAS THE BACKING OF A DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS!!!!

JUST HOW MUCH MORE ‘CHANGE’ DO YOU THINK YOU CAN STAND?

I really like the You Tube bit which did the Obama song to the Soviet Union's National Anthem.

Or the one that played the little brain-washed kids singing the new Obama song over the video of the Nazi Youth singing in Cabaret.

Puts things in their proper perspective, really.
