To call Obama, a great man, a "ghetto-organizing street thug" is despicable and disgusting . It's YOU who have no class . Obama has more intelligence, decency, and class in one cell of his body than a million right-wing jerks like you have collectively .

Robert1824. You are a joke, the dumbest of the dumb. It's incredible that "people" like you are allowed to mingle with human beings.

That Beyonce apparently lip-synched her beautiful rendition of the national anthem is a triviality. It's cold on the steps of the Capitol and even the greatest singer might have trouble sounding good in those conditions. Kelly Clarkson apparently sang live (and perhaps paid a price in quality).
