Michelle Obama Says The President ‘Sings To Me All The Time’
ABC "news" ^ | 2/1/12 | Mary Bruce

Posted on 02/01/2012 2:53:23 AM PST by SoFloFreeper

First Lady Michelle Obama said her husband — a recent singing sensation — doesn’t hesitate to “show off his lungs” and sings to her all the time.

President Obama proved his vocal ability when he sang a few lines of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” at a campaign event earlier this month.

”That was completely spontaneous,” Mrs. Obama told Jay Leno in an interview on NBC’s “The Tonight Show” on Tuesday night. “I didn’t even hear about it until it got on YouTube, but he does have a beautiful voice, and he sings to me all the time.”

I cannot recall more attention being paid to a five second bit of sound...sometimes maybe it'd be nice if there were some attention paid to the higher gas prices, unemployment rates, and Iranian pursuit of a nuclear bomb.

Obama oversees, with glee, the destruction of prosperity, and then sends his wife to yuk it up on TV with Jay Leno.

Yet - I'll bet not a word of Johnathan Martin referring to the Florida Panhandle as the "Cracker Counties".

I don't give a damn if it is a local term - the a-hole Martin was not on a local channel, he was on a national cable TV show. And Chuck Todd just sat on his dumb ass and didnt blink an eye when the remark was made.

But - this will pass, it's not like the idiot referred to the citizens there as Macaca's or were on food stamps - right?

Nope, not one word about Cracker. Not-so-Sharp was also there, and that BOY
was trying everything in the book to be right about every racist spin he could think up.
I swear, if a Cracker called a turd brown Sharpie would throw a fit.


Nutz.

The occupant of our White House needs something to do when he’s not golfing, on vacation, or destroying our country. Why not sing?

Too much information.

Thanks.

I can picture every journalist playing this clip on repeat while taking a bubble bath (yes, both male and female).

Their obsession is almost satanic.

I was in a waiting room yesterday where the tv was tuned to CNN.
When they played that clip the blacks in the room were orgasmic.
He could probably make more money as a singer. Then he could really keep Shelly in style. She could travel all the time and Chicago would be just a stop on the tour.
Hey Barack, quit your day job! It’s OK, you can make it.

You love her
but she loves him
And he loves somebody else
you just can’t win
And so it goes
till the day you die
This thing they call love
it’s gonna make you cry
I’ve had the blues
the reds and the pinks
One thing’s for sure
Love stinks

I suppose to be accurate, it would be “he loves himself”

What he is singing that is music to Michelle’s ears is the “taxman” by the Beatles
Let me tell you how it will be
There’s one for you, nineteen for me
‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman

Should five per cent appear too small
Be thankful I don’t take it all
‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah I’m the taxman

If you drive a car, I’ll tax the street,
If you try to sit, I’ll tax your seat.
If you get too cold I’ll tax the heat,
If you take a walk, I’ll tax your feet.

Don’t ask me what I want it for
If you don’t want to pay some more
‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman

Now my advice for those who die
Declare the pennies on your eyes
‘Cause I’m the taxman, yeah, I’m the taxman
And you’re working for no one but me.

Obama sings... big deal!

I sound like Elvis when I sing in the shower, and I also do a great rendition of Joe Cocker- “You are so beautiful”.

If you want to see my show, it’s at around 7 in the morning .... bring your own coffee.

Obama sounds like a homo....
