Posted on 12/08/2012 2:59:36 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife

A spokesman said Friday that the Obama family will attend the December 21 Christmas in Washington concert, as is custom.

News reports cite two instances of the 34-year-old "Gangnam Style" rapper participating in concerts protesting the US military presence in South Korea during the early stages of the war in Iraq.

In a 2004 concert, PSY performs another act's song about killing "Yankees" who have been torturing Iraqi captives and their families "slowly and painfully."......

.....PSY's inescapable hit went viral in the US and holds the YouTube record for most watched video.

TOPICS: Crime/Corruption; Culture/Society; Extended News; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: antiamerican; gangnam; obama; psy; rap
But he apologized like Jane Fonda has apologized......

No surprise that this group was invited to entertain at the concert.

It’s not “despite” rapper’s anti-American protests, it’s “because of” rapper’s anti-American protests.

“...despite rapper’s anti-American protests”

This would appeal even MORE to Bronco Bama’s instincts.

There is a certain minority opinion in this country that DELIGHTS in pulling down all that the ideals of America are based upon. By denying that such an America ever existed, and that what it claimed to be was always based on what is (in their minds) a flat-out lie and an impossibility.

There is not, anc can never be, a meeting of the minds with such attitudes, as they think all others are “too stupid” to ever have a discussion with.

None are so blind as those who will not see.

You are so right, and half of America is blind.
I can not fathom how so many Americans have been dumbed down by the MSM and Public education, K-grad.
I do not expect to return in my remaining years.

PSY is anti-American?

That explains why Obama is attending.

More to the point would be our new King riding on an Egyptian-made M1A1 main battle tank on its way to the Sinai front.

Why not, they both hate America and wish US soldiers would die quietly like the Bengazi betrayal.

Obama is the epitome of style over substance. He does not have the American worldview that we have, and is more concerned with trying to maintain a hip image, much like a teenager. He’s 22 months younger than me, and I don’t know anyone in our age group who likes this crap. He’ll make a fool of himself doing the Gangnam Style dance, and the media will gush about how cool he is. A narcissist MUST be adored.

Why would anyone think it's a big deal if Obama doesn't care if some moronic rapper is anti-american...

He hates this country...

He said nothing different then many prominent Democrats and reporters.

Our Country has gone from a Christmas Concert of Silent Night, to a Rap singer from S. Korea.

My God why hast thou forsaken us.

I ask, but I know the answer.

Homosexual Marriage
Abortion
The ACLU removing crosses all over the country
Banned Nativity sets.
No school prayer
Banned Ten Commandments

Thinking this over, I have concluded that perhaps it is biblical and morally correct to pray that oppressive tyrants are toppled, regardless where in the world, and over whomever they lord themselves, in either peaceful or less than peaceful ways. Nobody can be arrested for thinking these things nor praying for the fall of the Chavez’s, the Castro’s, the Ayatollah’s, the Kim Jong Un’s and others of the world who rule with iron fists and implement either Communism or Radical Islam or a combination of both, either rapidly or on some kind of slow, steady installment plan. Sic Semper Tyrannis. Thus always to tyrants. Pray for one courageous man or woman or group of people to risk much but to stand up and put an end to the rule of these kind of people in our World today, or even cancers or natural calamities or transportation accidents for such dictators so that their people can be freed. If they rule with injustice and with evil intent, a Lord who despises injustice and evil will see to it that an overwhelming number of prayers are in fact answered. Prayer helped bring down the Soviet Union, and the Berlin Wall, something thought almost impossible; that power is no less potent today.

"PSY's inescapable hit"

The author is wrong right there. I am blessed because I escaped it...until now. But I've still not seen or heard it, thanks be to God.

The Royal Presidency
By Mark Steyn
December 8, 2012 12:00 A.M.

From the New York Daily News:

“Snooki Gives Kate Middleton Advice on Being a New Parent.”

Great! Maybe Kate could return the favor and give Snooki and her fellow Americans some advice. About fiscal prudence, for example. Say what you like about a high-living, big-spending, bloated, decadent, parasitical, wastrel monarchy, but, compared to the citizen-executive of a republic of limited government, it’s a bargain. So, while the lovely Duchess of Cambridge nurses her baby bump, the equally radiant president of the United States nurses his ever more swollen debt belly. He and his family are about to jet off on their Christmas vacation to watch America slide off the fiscal cliff from the luxury beach resort of Kailua. The cost to taxpayers of flying one man, his wife, two daughters, and a dog to Hawaii is estimated at $3,639,622. For purposes of comparison, the total bill for flying the entire royal family (Queen, princes, dukes, the works) around the world for a year is £4.7 million — or about enough for two Obama vacations.

According to the USAF, in 2010 Air Force One cost American taxpayers $181,757 per flight hour. According to the Royal Canadian Air Force, in 2011 the CC-150 Polaris military transport that flew William and Kate from Vancouver to Los Angeles cost Her Majesty’s Canadian subjects $15,505 per hour — or about 8/100ths of the cost.

This is interesting:

Earlier, we were told that Obama & his whole family were going to Hawaii for a vacation—from Dec 17 to Jan 6. How can he attend this Dec 21 concert???

Is there anyone in the White House who can tell the truth about anything?

Or are they going to Hawaii on 4 different dates on 4 different planes...possibly 5 planes if Bo is going.
