Much Ado About Nothing

Editor: No parents objected to Obama song lyrics 

The right is at it again with their Obama bashing, and yet again their outrage is misguided.

Mitchell told On the Record with Greta Van Susteren that parents were sent the lyrics of the song in advance, as is standard procedure with performances of this sort, and that no one voiced any concerns about it. He noted the performance took place in February, shortly after the inauguration of the 44th president, when Obama's popularity ratings were riding high.

The video of schoolchildren singing "Barack Hussein Obama/He said that all must lend a hand/To make this country strong again" went viral after being posted to YouTube, where it drew the attention of right-wing radio talk show hosts and Fox News.

  1. How absurd! How many times in history have we been asked to help our country? By probably ALL our presidents! This is really getting out of hand! I personally think asking that we all "lend a hand" is better than "go shopping" after 9/11!!
