    Are you kidding me? But seeing how idiotic the people are in this government, they may allow these idiots to win…

    This country has no morals anymore, it is a wasteland….

    Thats what happends when you vote for a hip hop president, You never seen Bush or Clinton focusing on basketball , worrying about what gay people think, wives handing out freaking awards for Oscar's, basically beating around the bush and avoiding the real problems in america. Mitt Romney , we need you.

      So glad people like you "James" are not running this country. I guess we should vote for a redneck president and all live in the hills of Kentucky or maybe we should go back to the days of slavery and lynchings, or maybe we should focus on the "REAL PROBLEMS" of America and that is the lack of respect for fellow Americans. For those of you that don't like what this President stands for maybe you should moved to Irag, or Nigeria or Afghanistan and se what they truly feel about "YOU" Americans????

      Hey James, "Happends"??? Check your spelling and yourself. The words you use shows society how you feel about yourself.

    I dont think that the song needs to be the national anthem! But just because we got a down to earth president; it doesnt mean that he is not focusing on the problems we have today!!! And if Mitt Romney was the president i know fo sure this world would be in worser shape!!! Just like it was when Bush was in office!!!

    Using that song as the national anthem I think would be one of the dumbest things in American history. The song is clearly about partying, drinking and a guy asking a girl to make love to him. We couldn't possibly think it is okay to represent our country in that kind of way. *This is coming from an 18 year old*

      Agree with you completely. There are many cool tunes about partying, etc. – but none (really) should be used as a national anthem. BTW – ours, the music at least, is to the tune of an old drinking song.
      NOW! Takes Canada's National Anthem. That one's totally kool!!!

    Great from one poorly sung song to another. Get rid of the words to the national anthem and the song would be fine. There's on a dozen people that can sing it anyway.

    You are the same mope who commented that the Putbulls be put down cruelly.
    I think your moms calling you to clean up your room junior, and put the Xbox down!

    Being a African American female in society today, ppl would say its "wrong" for me to not like Obama, but I have no respect for any politician. All liars, but this story has nothing to do with Ovama. Ppl are just trying to be funny. As far as we know, this could just be a silly made up story, to get hair brained citizens upset over nothing. Worry about where your tax dollars are being spent, instead of this crap. The news is wrong for posting this. As a country, get over race and let's worry about our conceal and carry rights, to protect ourselves.

    This is grea,t is dennis rodman going to sing it at the next meeting with the little butterball, next time they get together to shoot some hoops…………..

    Dennis this would mean more with more bling on your facea bit*()&^…..

    There is nothing wrong with the National Anthem the way that it is now. The thing is teaching people the words to the song and the meaning. Some people don't never know the Declaration or the founding Fathers. This is what our children need to be learning , not who has the hottest video, house, car etc……. and don't get it wrong R Kelly is an exceptional entertainer, but not a good role model. Just my opinion.

    • Dwayne

      Now thats a respectable opinion to be made. I believe our National anthem should not be changed but I don't have to resort to name calling to address my opinion, and we're not going back to slavery and ignorance and some of you will have us to be.
