Some people thought Beyonce did a superb job singing the national anthem at Obama’s Second Coronation yesterday. It turns out she Milli-Vanillied it:

CONFIRMED: Beyonce lip-synched at the inauguration

Beyonce Knowles’ flawless performance of “The Star Spangled Banner” at the inauguration was entirely lip-synched, Page Six has confirmed. A rep for the United States Marine Band revealed that she decided to perform to a pre-recorded track at the last minute.

When you think about it that’s a very appropriate symbol for the Age of Obama.

      I also liked what Ryan said about Obama’s Inaugural speech- Ryan’s good at getting at the crux of the issue:

      The Obot delusion on that thread is so sad — I responded but stopped — couldn’t allow myself to get sucked in. Everything from “Romney is only saying this now because he’s butthurt he lost” (Reading comprehension, how the fuck does that work?) to “This is all no biggie — Obama knew all that stuff too” (Um, how come he said Romney was lying when he said all those things then — cognitive dissonance, how the fuck does that work).

      The Y-Gen will doom us all & they’re too stupid to even realize it because hey — they FEEL GOOD about it & they BELIEVE Obama is right & Romney is wrong — facts don’t mean much to the “smart set.”

  2. Yes, singing outdoors in the cold can be hard to do but Oh! for crying out loud- what a prima donna. It was ONE frigging song – not like anyone asked her to sing an entire concert in the cold.
    One song! She could not sing ONE song?
    Give me the damn mike.

    Kelly Clarkson: Sorry Beyonce, I Sang LIVE at Inauguration

    Kelly Clarkson doesn’t compare to Beyonce — because Kelly actually sang her song LIVE yesterday at the Presidential Inauguration … TMZ has learned … unlike Beyonce, who lip-synced to a pre-recorded track.

    A spokesperson for the U.S. Marine Corp Band — which provides the music for the Inauguration — tells TMZ, Beyonce mouthed the words to a pre-recorded studio version of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

    But the rep added, Kelly sang “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” WITHOUT the help of a backing track.

    Sharyl Atkisson tweeted all the Benghazi questions the WH refuses to answer. I’m guessing she’s hopping mad and probably getting pressured to shut up.

    U.S. System Not Worthy of Obama

    by Keith Koffler on January 22, 2013, 2:36 pm

    This has been around for a couple of days, but I wanted to make sure you saw it.

    One of President Obama’s top advisers suggested to the Washington Post the other day that neither Republicans nor the American political system are “worthy” of Obama’s political agenda.

    “There’s a moment of opportunity now that’s important,” said White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer . “What’s frustrating is that we don’t have a political system or an opposition party worthy of the opportunity.”

    Checks and balances are a cruel thing when you are trying to do great things that Republicans couldn’t possibly understand, I know. But because of those idiots who founded our country, that’s the system we got, Dan.

    People should understand that Pfeiffer is not just the West Wing Minister of propaganda. He’s a smart political veteran who is one of a small handful of aides deeply trusted by the president. If he thinks this way, you can be sure the attitude is pervasive and extends straight to the top.

        I used to have a cockatiel that LOVED that song! He would bounce up and down and “dance” to it. He would chirp in time with the “whoop” in the song during the verses and he’d whistle the chorus while he strutted about, LOL!

        Gosh I hadn’t thought about that in years. Poor little guy passed away some years ago when my three year old made him bird food out of playdough. That’s when we discovered how artistic my daughter was because she made exact replicas of the bird’s food, the replicas were so good none of us noticed.

      From the comments, this never gets old …..

      “Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and given him triumphal processions. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the new wonderful good society which shall now be Rome’s, interpreted to mean more money, more ease, more security, and more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.” – Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 BC)

      • myiq2xu says:

        Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as “bad luck.” – Robert Heinlein

    Speaking of fake… presidents, my favorite part of the inauguration speech was when Obama quoted, I guess his new hero, Neville Chamberlain. Yep, that happened.

  15. r u reddy says:

    Last summer sometime I predicted that Chief Justice Roberts would lead the Roberts Court in ruling that the Forced Mandate in Baucus-Obama Romneycare was Constitutional. Unfortunately I hedged that prediction after Obama personally insulted the Court’s honor by saying
    that the Court would LIKE to rule the Forced Mandate Constitutional if the Court (and especially Roberts) can get past this insult to the Court’s honor. So my hedged prediction was less than ringing. But I was still basically right.

    So now I predict: Obama will approve the Keystone XL Pipeline Northern Half as soon as he feels the time is right. I will hedge that prediction by saying that if he feels he can’t approve it outright, he will approve the extension and expansion of existing pipelines going south, east, south, and back west so as to link up to the northern end of Keystone XL Pipeline Southern Half which he has already approved.
    One way or the other, he WILL approve the pipeline connectors needed to get diluted bitumen from the Alberta Tar Sands down to export terminals and refineries on the Gulf of Mexico.

    Yo Yo Ma did the same at the 2009 inauguration. Not that he sang, but “played” his cello in sync with a pre-recorded track.

      I am Pro-Choice , but that is just disgusting in every way that is wrong and on every level , esp the sexual innuendo .

    • HELENK says:

      that is just sick. abortion is not something to celebrate. It is one of the hardest decisions a woman will ever have to make. She will have to live with the decision for the rest of her life.

    • elliesmom says:

      “Happy Anniversary, Baby”. What a poor choice of words. Fifty million plus babies will never have any anniversaries to celebrate. I don’t know why women think passing and keeping Roe v. Wade really had and still has much to do with them. It’s more about guys like the one in this spot who get to impregnate women and walk away. “I told her to get an abortion.”

      • smile says:

        Exactly. It takes 2 to tango, and it takes 2 to make the decision not to use contraceptives. And often, it is the men who will pressure and/or convince the women to not use condoms, because it does not feel good. And what do they have to worry about. The consequences of it will not effect them or their bodies or their paychecks, because we have well gone past those days when men felt some smidgen of responsibility for impregnating a women. And hey, there is always the abortion, or there is always the “I can just walk out of your life” casualness.

    • votermom says:

      Hard to believe it’s not parody. *barf*
      Truly sexist AND racist.
      And yet honest – abortion is a big boon to the “players” and most abortions are by black women.

  20. 49erDweet (D) says:

    It is probably an accurate depiction of the attitude of a great number of male Rv.W supporters. The fact that attitude openly exists yet doesn’t seem to ring alarm bells in the self preservation centers of fertile females is a PR triumph for our educational and legal systems.

    Thai magazine editor jailed for 10 years for insulting king

    A Thai magazine editor was jailed for 10 years on Wednesday for insulting the royal family under the country’s draconian lese-majeste law, a sentence that drew condemnation from international rights groups and the European Union.

    Somyot Prueksakasemsuk, editor of “Voice of the Oppressed”, a magazine devoted to self-exiled former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, was found guilty of publishing articles in 2010 defaming King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

    The articles criticized the role of a fictional character meant to represent the king, public prosecutors said in a July 2011 report. Discussions about the role of the monarchy are forbidden.

    “The accused is a journalist who had a duty to check the facts in these articles before publishing them. He knew the content defamed the monarchy but allowed their publication anyway,” a judge said in passing sentence.

    American media immediately began calling for a similar law in the United States. “Punish anyone who insults Barack!” they chanted.
