Long live the Corpse! … er, I mean, Corps.

From a press pool report of last night’s naturalization ceremony for members of the military:

One awkward moment: A New York Times photographer in the pool mentioned that shortly after Obama ended his remarks and was shaking hands, the a subset of the Marine Corps band played one of Mitt Romney’s main walkout songs, Rod Atkins’ “It’s America.”

Maybe the Marines were annoyed because the ever-classy Obama used the military naturalization ceremony to push the DREAM Act.

    Well at least they didn't play God Bless the USA. We all know just how controversial that song can be (just ask that school in NY).

    "Maybe the Marines were annoyed because the ever-classy Obama used the military naturalization ceremony to push the DREAM Act."

    I served with two guys who joined the US military while being legal residents in the US (one from Mexico and the other from Russia). They found that serving in the US military was a win win for them. First, it did shorten the time it took for them to become naturalized citizens (which they earned) and secondly they felt it was a way for them to pay all Americans back for giving them such a great opportunity to become citizens of this great nation.

    Both of them are seriously p.o. by both the talk of amnesty and illegal immigration in general.

    How'd you manage to FIND that..? Under "Pop & Hiss" their music blog?

    Payback's a b!tch huh Bammie. You forced the USMC Band to dredge their way thru your little GLBT 'affair' at the WH and now they uh… 'slipped up'. Hey guess what @-hole.., you're not the only one that can manufacture incredible 'coincidences'.

    Certainly nothing for you to be offended by. How does getting screwed just by hap and stance 'feel'? Don't worry, it won't happen again until the NEXT time.

    It took some digging to find, but it is always nice to find a little treasure like that in such a liberal place like the LA Times. It drives the lib trolls crazy when they can't just dismiss it as "just from a right wing propaganda source".

    As is my uncle, formerly a West German citizen, an Army veteran, and now a US citizen.

    When it comes to LT's, anything they can't fall immediately and hopelessly in love w/ constitutes a rightwinger source. Always, Always ALWAYS attack the source.

    Even if it's a meteorite that fell from the sky. What I'm finding utterly amazing, with a timeline that's compressing by the hour, they've painted themselves into this corner where there isn't one single-positive-thing they can say about P'BO so the instantaneous knee-jerk response is no different than the neighbor's dog chained to watch the garage?

    They bark at EVERYTHING. They've no idea 'why' they just know they're miserable and I DEFY anyone to prove me wrong here, but the (1) the ONLY remaining bit of authority left is to raise enough of a stink to make the REST of us miserable! They're becoming nothing but laughable to even the 18-25 demographic…

    O/T…Drudge has a great bit of story placement on the main page:

    Obama kicks off 'Betting on America' tour to paint Romney as outsourcer of jobs…

    FLASHBACK: Campaign bus made in Canada…

  8. Marshall_Will on July 5th, 2012 3:05 pm

    Lol, there's that painted corner again!

    For the last 4 years most of us have been able to identify with poor animals at the zoo, endlessly TAUNTED by mentally challenged 5th graders throwing marshmallows at us. Pillory/dunk tank anyone?

    Dims remind me of the jealous, backstabbing social climber we all seemed to know in high school. They reach a saturation so complete, there isn't a soul they can peddle their LIES to because they've already poisoned that well?

    They're gonna' learn; "Friends can make secrets ( but secrets don't make 'friends'? )"

  9. Truesoldier__ on July 5th, 2012 3:12 pm

    A co-worker of mine said that Romney should pay someone to drive behind the Obama campaign bus with a big sign that says "The Bus in front of me was made in Canada"

  10. Marshall_Will on July 5th, 2012 3:45 pm

    And it would serve Dims right! Like Michelle said, "It's Obama's America" so I don't see that happening but..?

    I mean, I know I can speak to this b/c I've done it myself. When you're in a shop, or an office or an employment situation, and you just can't possibly be more unhappy..? You can really burn bridges without really trying!

    INDEED !!

  12. Truesoldier__ on July 5th, 2012 4:01 pm

    No doubt about it.

  13. Truesoldier__ on July 5th, 2012 4:02 pm

    What would have been funnier is if the Marine Corps Band had started playing the Kenyan national anthem….

  14. Marshall_Will on July 5th, 2012 5:24 pm

    I'm not sure which specific 'day' Obama QUIT worrying about Cloward-Piven/Agenda 21/Prog wetdream and STARTED worrying solely about getting his azz re-elected.., but we know it came.

    So now Dims, the Pentagon, hotdog vendors, they all fall into (2) basic categories for Him; Either you're WITH Him or you're AGAINST Him! Dude should be 'campaigning' with a pitchfork and torch.

  15. jeffythequick on July 5th, 2012 7:25 pm

    I don't know… they had the bus honking thing, and the disrupt Hitler's lost son (forgot his name… guy from Chicago, runs Obama's campaign now…).

    Maybe Romney does have it in him… we'll see.

  16. ChapBix on July 6th, 2012 1:43 am

    Or the Russian national anthem and see if Obama would snap to a salute.

  17. SignPainterGuy on July 6th, 2012 2:10 am

    With Zero`s propensity to appease muslim nations and groups, and I assume muslim nations DO have nat`l anthems, but with several extremist imams making statements like, "There is no joy, fun, dancing, etc. in islam", I can`t help but wonder; will muslim nations "continue" to have nat`l anthems ?

  18. Truesoldier__ on July 6th, 2012 12:33 pm

    They do have national anthems, but muslim call to prayer is pretty tough for a band to pull off. Probably would need the Marine Corps Choir for that one.

    A group of sailor buddies returning to ship after shore-leave in Singapore could caterwaul that pretty well !
