    Obummie is from Hollywood fantasy land. I wish he would quit and go there with the rest of the nuts. He is a community organizer and union rebel that needs to be impeached !!!! If he wins again in 2012, this nation has absolutely gone to the nuts and welfare cases.

    May be, "...position comes and goes. So, I better do things that makes me happy. I am doing my job periodically".

    The republicans would prefer a movie about Napoleon, but will find out that we are close to Speaker of the House John, pulling his Bonaparte.

    Obama should have been there.......his main claim to fame, is that he is a Hollywood actor......playing a role.

    I'm really surprised that he picked that song, given the entertainers he invites to the White House.
    However, "As Time Goes By" was a beautiful choice.
