Who can remember before Obama ‘united’ the country, the relative concinnity of it all.

And once those people are inevitably swept out of office, concinnity will return once again.

Obamacare, with pure asininity
Has premiums rising up to infinity
If Barack has the smarts
Why do all the law’s parts
Lack cohesion, congruity, and concinnity?
