Latin music tends to make us move a little bit ourselves, says Obama
WASHINGTON - The White House became "La Casa Blanca" on Tuesday, celebrating Hispanic musical heritage with a South Lawn concert and such guests as Gloria Estefan, George Lopez, the Bachata music group Aventura, Jose Feliciano and more.
President Barack Obama said Latin music, while hard to define because it comes in so many forms from salsa to merengue and Bachata to reggaeton speaks to everyone in a language they can all understand.
"It moves us, and it tends to make us move a little bit ourselves," Obama said in brief remarks before the infectious rhythms began pulsating on the White House grounds. "In the end, what makes Latin music great is the same thing that's always made America great. The unique ability to celebrate our differences while creating something new."

Obama’s 7 Lies In Under 2 Minutes
Nero plays while Rome burns and the natives are growing more and more restless.....
Just another excuse to party with celebs.
Yep...and I refuse to go to any movies now regardless of how good they may be or how fine an actor ( say Tom Hanks) is at his or her craft.
All this communism won’t affect their life style at all..Ever wonder why those kinds of filthy rich people are always for stealing from us but they don’t seem to care?
Four of those lies were within about the first 30 seconds.
Consolidating the illegal immigrant vote for the upcoming Amnesty bill.
Why no White Heritage festival?

there explained fully
I can't imagine serving in our military and having to see the Commander in Chief strutting around like a pimp at a block party.
As much as I’m ticked at Newt for his NY-23 endorsement, he did come out on O’Reilly yesterday saying he thought the delay of the decision on troops in Afghanistan is purely political. Obama wants to make sure all the moonbats come out and vote in November.
I tried to watch it on TV but couldn’t because it started out with an Obama speech. And whoever wrote that article for AP knows very little, tapering down to nothing, about Latin music. Another three hours when he could have been conferring with General McChrystal.
Exactly! It is disgusting beyond words. I would bet good money that Rahm was overheard in the WH saying this about Afghanistan-”Fr**ick no, not before the elections!” Then when he was called on it; he made up real quick, that he meant the Afghan elections.
With the nation’s economy in the toilet, it’s somehow reassuring to know that a bunch of high rollers can get together with the president and indulge themselves.
Is this what Marie Antoinette meant when she said, “Let them eat cake”?
