Credit down grades, mayhem in the streets of London, never ending war in the Middle East... Who's running the show? Half-wit used car salesmen we elect to Congress on the basis of a few sound bites? Are we really surprised when our leaders spend their time texting naughty pictures to teenagers?

The front page of the paper had us turning to our good friend Michael Fitzpatrick this morning, and the rallying cry he penned for Fitz and the Tantrums.

If Londoners can pick up their brooms and sweep up after the destruction and chaos of the last few days, well maybe our fearless leader can do a little more for us on the home front.

Fitz and The Tantrums - "Dear Mr. President"

Lyrics...
Broken man and his wife with a child ain't got no hope.
Outta work outta time, old man winter's comin' on

One meal ain't enough for three
Is this the way its supposed to be
Daddy just walked out mamma raisin' family

Hey put your foot down and take a look round
Don't like what you see
No No No No No No
Hey put your foot down and take a look round
Don't like what you see
No No No No No No

Get in line there's no jobs and the kids are shootin' dope
Outta work outta time mamma's startin' to loose hope, hope

It ain't enough to pray
When you got no place to stay
Daddy just walked out mamma raisin' family.

Hey put your foot down and take a look round
Don't like what you see
No No No No No No
Hey put your foot down and take a look round
Don't like what you see

Dear Mr. President
There is trouble on the streets
Now is the time and the test we must meet.

Dear Mr. President,
take a look around
Please Mr. President,
put your foot down

After scratching your head on this one, be sure to relive all the action of the band's recent stop in Atlantic City with our exclusive concert video.
