Mmmm mmmm mmmmmmm.
8 US KIA yesterday, today LATIN MUSIC NIGHT...?
This is SPOOKY...
Let’s see. He’s had ‘country music night’...now ‘latin night’. When is he going to have ‘polka night’? ‘Riverdance’ night?
Taxpayer produced, shown on taxpayer supported TV to a bunch of people many of whom don’t pay taxes. mmmm mmmm mmmm!
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?
Have you seen the commercials he’s made for the new George Lopez show? The man has no concept of the dignity of the office of POTUS. None!
Yep, when all else fails start currying favor with ethnic voting blocks.
After seeing Shakira on the ALMA Awards, I’d like to host a Latin music night myself.
You’re right. There’s no established definition of “Hispanic.”
Can I send my mexican neighbors up there?
Every time they play that damned circus music of theirs, I want to jab ice picks into my eardrums.
Oh Boy!..I can’t wait to see Michelle shakin’ her booty on the dance floor!!
He DID remember to invite Sheila E.
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...)
It’s just their take on Texas polka.
