    Now THAT took a helluva lot of guts!
    Coyotes were howling from states away!
    Children were crying in the audience (wink), it was just a ridiculously unnecessary, and painful spectacle all in an effort to one-up our President.
    Mittens, the fact that you chose to "murder" a patriotic song with your voice I found to be ironically revealing.
    Obama 2012.

    I'll take Mitt's singing over Obama's any day. I'm tired of smooth talking Obama saying and doing nothing for the past three years.

    If he is willing to single-handedly "kill" a beautiful song about our country in that manner, imagine what he's willing to do to the country itself.

    Let him sing, dance, flip-flop, and spend money. He may be front-runner in GOP nonsense, but will lose big with Pres. Obama. Obama2012.

    Just like Al Gore stunned the Democratic Convention in 2000 by kissing his wife, people are stunned that Romney is more than a robot.

    He sang in a thunderstorm and it sounded like hail.

    I've heard dogs who sing better. I'd prefer hearing the President singing Al Green.

    OBAMA/BIDEN 2012

    Those who have been asking: "Where is the changes"? There you get it. We are about to enter "the best candidate singer ". It will be easier to pick than that of American Idol.

    Anyone who makes $60, 000 in their sleep every night would be singing too! I wonder if all the people who he fired to make that money are still singing too. Hmmm . . . it makes you wonder doesn't it?

    This guy should stick to just talking. He needs to stick to his day job. Oh wait, his day job is running for President, I forgot he has been doing this for a number of years. Willard, do us a favor and don't do that again.

    Romeny has nothing but lies to cover up his lack of honesty and conservatism, Newt has the knowledge but no conservatism, Honesty+Conservatism=Santorum. Vote for Rick Santorum.

    He's no Barack. The president has some pipes on him. Mitt tries to make up for his lack of talent with a patriotic song. That's kind of like trying to make up for lack of political talent with religion.

    I probably would have sounded worst, but i give him props for doing that. I actually would have been disappointed if he could sing really well. It is nice to know that he is human.

    Romney may be a good businessman and an ex-govenor, but he is definitely not a good singer. Stick to your day job, Willard
