    Yep, I totally agree. The political message is very out of line.

    EDIT: Though, that's not to say that it was a negative message. I think that the general message itself if very positive, and seems to be very encouraging. It's just not appropriate to submit children to politics at this age.

    Hello, Mr. President we honor you today!
    For all your great accomplishments, we all doth say "hooray!"

    Hooray, Mr. President! You're number one!
    The first black American to lead this great nation!

    Hooray, Mr. President we honor your great plans
    To make this country's economy number one again!

    Hooray Mr. President, we're really proud of you!

    I demand that all parties involved be immediately terminated. This is indoctrination, this is America not ****ing Nazi Germany or North Korea.
    I'm appalled. Who could write such crappy lyrics? Man, children's music just keeps on sucking.

    I think it's weird and cheesy but not in any Hail Hitler type of way. It's more like there is finally a hero of sorts for blacks to look up to and there hasn't been such a famous successful black leader in quite some time. He is the first black president and so it's likely they'll be all kinds of tributes to him wanted or not, appropriate or not.

    Similar to the crappy songs kids sing about Martin Luther King during black history month

    I wonder if they sang any monkey songs about George W. Bush.

    Oooo! I found some:

    This was the work of teachers, not Obama.

    And yes, I think this deserves an investigation and I don't think it would be going too far to suspend or even possibly terminate the jobs of the administrators involved.

    They tried to excuse it by saying they sang songs with Lincoln's and George Washington's name, but they had to have known it would have caused problems to use Obama's name and accomplishments in this fashion.

    You can celebrate black history month without having the children singing praises about Obama.

    I couldn't agree with you more.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    If this is true then this needs to stop RIGHT NOW. The teacher(s) and any administartors involved in this must face severe disiplanary action.

    One caveat , "]If [/COLOR]this is true .. Let us not that this came from FOX the home of Glenn Wreck and Saun Vannity need I say more ?
    I do not recall the Viet Cong asking me if I was a natural born or Naturalized American before they shot at me, they just shot at all of us f107HyperSabr

    In the Russian dominated Soviet Union this type of stuff was ranmpant especially during the Stalin years. The Chi Coms sang the "praises" of Chaiman Mao and I believe that in Cuba they sang about another muderer Castro. There is no excuse for political indocrination.

    As I noted in another post I would like to see an fair and balanced source for this story since all that we have thus far is Faux Newzs.
