      You amaze me on how quickly you put together your tweets to tell a story on exactly what’s happening. I feel like I’m there.

      On a side note, is something going on at twitter. I’m not seeing pictures in some of the tweets.

    As much as I love our Prez I have to say that song was bad. His voice was about gone and he was way out of tune almost like he had been partying too much. Now I feel like a Fox commentator. When he sang Amazing Grace he was way good then and with the other songs I heard too. It just makes him more real to me, not to be perfect all the time.

      I thought the same thing, too OG. But then I thought, knowing how close he is to Malia, and that she soon will be heading off to Spain and then college, that I bet he was just too choked up to sing in his usual full voiced manner. Either way, he didn’t let it stop him from singing to her anyway. What a loving father.

    • July 4, 2016 at 10:35 pm

      Come on give the man a break. So what if he was off key. It was a loving moment between a father and his daughter. I’m pretty sure the family have already sung Happy Birthday to Malia, and I’m sure she probably had a birthday cake.

      I think it was amazing that the President also a proud Dad knew he was hoarse and would sound different but he did it anyway because it was not about how he sounded, it was about his daughter and how much he appreciated her willingness to share another birthday, a milestone birthday with hundreds of strangers because it’s a work day for her Dad and Mom. I loved him singing hoarse and courageous knowing many would diss him for how he sounded. It just means the listener fails to understand how to listen to the song – with LOVE. It was a tribute to the pride and love and respect he has for his daughter.

      President Obama knows who is for real! Kendrick Lamar and Jannelle Monae are for real. They put their money where their mouths are; unlike the “BlackAdemics, public intellectuals,” like Cornel West, Michael Eric Dyson and others,who think that their constant bashing of President Obama makes them the real and the only authentic Blacks working to improve the lives of Black people.
