Obama and his crew of illegal Marxist Czars have no trouble singing the Communist International.

MSM will now have numerous think-pieces about how the words of our National Anthem have always been the subject of controversy, going back all the way to Francis Scott Key, who was dyslexic, may have been a slaveowner, and probably bipolar too.

How come Fox news is not airing it?

We found it on two other channels to be aired at
6pm west coast time.

I will look for him mouthing the words
wrong.

Not that it means anything to me.

I am a practicing Catholic (came home)
four years ago and the one Prayer I
cant seem to memorize is the Nicene Creed.

Does it mean I am not a good
Catholic? No, far from it.

Just a prayer I have been lazy
in learning.
I memorized it for Confirmation
but did not keep it memorized.

Working on it when watching TV mass or
attending Mass.

How was the rest of the Dinner?

We are going to watch in the venue
that it will be a political satire.

And I am not refering to Leno or what
those other clowns consider satire.

Did you listen to Obama at that
grad ceremony?

He said us “right wing nuts”
should broaden are minds and
read Huff Post to be good
Americans even though we
might not like opposing
views.

We must be getting on
his nerves.

OK its on gotta go.

In a fit of honest patriotism, he absentmindedly sang “Nchi yetu ya, Kenya tunayoipenda, Tuwe tayari kuilinda” (trnaslation: “And our Homeland of Kenya, Heritage of splendour”).

The stinking SOB doesn’t even know the lyrics, nor does he care.

God, it is time for this POS to be kicked out of office for treason.

One of the 57 Islamic states.

He didn’t grow up an American. Ridicules and aplogizes for our country. Doesn’t believe in America’s unique role in history.

Ask him to recite the Pledge. Likely he doesn’t know it either.

How can you tell that from that poor video???

The fact that B. Hussein Obama is in the video at all is barely apparent.

Were his lips moving at all?
If you can tell that from what’s on that website, you’re watching something different than what I saw.

Why would he know the words to our National Anthem? Knowing his contempt for this country, there was never any reason why he should have ever learned them. Heck, I doubt he’s even heard Jimi Hendrix’ version.

Well, next week, some RINO will leap across the aisle & introduce a bill to change the national anthem — probably a Beatles song, maybe kumbaya. The bill will be 3,576 pages. It will require 214 new agencies and 200 new IRS agents to make sure that all citizens are licensed to sing our new anthem. It will set up a new cadre of uniformed guards to ensure that all citizens stand and salute at its singing.

This is one more example in hundreds ( thousands) that Obama isn't a real American. It right up there with bowing to a Saudi king.

I recommend the essay, “A Stranger in Our Midst”. Rush read this on his Friday program. Wow! It nails Obama head on.

Obama sung this song the last time he was in Russia...

Unbreakable union of free republics,
Great Russia has joined forever!
Long live the created by the will of peoples
United and mighty Soviet Union

CHORUS:
Glory to our free Fatherland
The stronghold of the friendship of peoples
Party of Lenin is the power of the people
It leads us to the triumph of Communism

2.

Through storms the sun of freedom shone to us
And the great Lenin lighted us the way
He raised peoples to the right cause
He inspired us to labour and to acts of heroism

CHORUS

3.

In the victory of the immortal ideas of Communism
We see the future of our country,
And to the Red banner of our glorious Fatherland
We shall always be selflessly loyal

CHORUS

Oh and Putin (The one world leader who knows enough damaging things about Obama that it would destroy him) gave him an applause for it!

I opened this video and it is a part of his speech about big vs small government. I don't see any flub. (I would love to see hims humiliated as most of us here do enjoy, hee, hee.) Think if Sarah did this? It would be on every front page.
