That video is pretty scary and not just because these kid's are singing about Obama. I would be equally wary if they were singing this way about George Bush, Abraham Lincoln or even George Washington. Americans don't deify their leaders, that's one of the things that makes us different from all of those oppressive dictatorships out there.

This kind of thing brings up frightening parallels to the youth indoctrination programs from Nazi Germany and, more recently, North Korea.

The reason no one made a Bush song is that his supporters were too busy figuring out ways to bring down the man............runs away laughing while carrying the spoon that stirred the pot.

That might be funny if it made any sense.

Clearly you have never heard this ode to our founding father.

this reminds me of that scene in the documentary Jesus Camp where little children at church are praying to a life-size cardboard cutout of george W. bush and then singing a song about him in unison. and some of the children were crying while they did it. now THAT was scary.

I remember seeing segments of that documentary, it was pretty disturbing stuff. I'm not sure if the kids were necessarily praying TO President Bush, but the imagery definitely did send the wrong message.
