Latin night? Why segregate the performers? Why not have an ensemble of people on merit, rather than demographic?

Mmmm mmmm mmmmmmm.

Let’s see. He’s had ‘country music night’...now ‘latin night’. When is he going to have ‘polka night’? ‘Riverdance’ night?

Obama needs to keep America separated into its various tribes. This will help.

Can’t we all just be Hispanic? What are the qualifications? As far as I can tell you only have to have been born in a country or territory once colonized by Spain.

one more brick in the wall. It doesn’t matter what kind of music - the fact is that we have almost 10% unemployment (officially), people are losing their jobs, our dollar is slipping, and he’s acting like the emperor. When will his supporters get a clue?

You’re right. There’s no established definition of “Hispanic.”

Who pays for this extravaganza? Funded by a private donor hoping to share his/her love of the arts? Or funded by our tax dollars? (while arts budgets are cut at schools and so many Americans look for work and the stimulus dollars seem to need a coffee boost of their own...)

This is the stuff of royalty. Barry and Michelle would be best kept as our putative king and queen. They could dine on pheasant, hold command performances, knight and dub their patrons, live their lavish, princely lives on the dole and almost everyone would be satisfied. Just keep them out of politics and the common weal.

That's being held in the White House parking lot.

But it would be nice to see Ozzy at the Obama White House.

George Bush to sup with Ozzy| News | This is London(Wednesday 07.10.09)

George Bush has invited Black Sabbath rocker Ozzy Osbourne to dinner at the White House. The US President is a fan of the MTV docusoap The Osbournes, which takes viewers into the rock star's Beverly Hills mansion. "We have been invited to the White House to have dinner with the President, " said Osbourne. "I don't know why that is. I thought I'd be on a wanted poster up on the wall, not invited to his place for tea..."

Remember during the campaign? He couldn’t draw a crowd without having some free concerts to warm the crowd up first and bring out the masses?

Well his tv ratings have also slipped so The Obama Show needs more musical guests.

But is there a tuba? There are several different kinds of Mexican music. I like Norteño (accordion), I like mariachi, I like some rock en espanol (Mana), I like Son, I like cumbia, but I can’t take Banda with the tubas. Makes me want to scream. It is the music that has taken over LA.

I’m sorry, this is probably the one thing that they’ve done (mostly Michelle) that I don’t have a problem with. They’ve had classical, jazz, bluegrass, now Latin. I can’t wait for the blues!

The next installment of the popular MTV reality series, titled, “Real World Washington DC, Latino White House”, is being filmed that night. Obama treats the office of the Presidency like a reality TV Show, posing for cameras and hobnobbing with celebrities while our troops are in harms way.

Actually being POTUS and making tough life and death decisions is not nearly as fun as hanging with Gloria Estevan, Jimmy Smits, etc.

Bunkers in Iran
Schmooze them if I can

Though the threat grows more daily
And they make plans
Give Peace a Chance
