What, Paul didn't play "Taxman"?
Hey Jude.Most overrated Beatles song.Ever.
If McCain were there he could sing "How Do You Sleep?" and piss off Paul AND Obama!
Remember back when we all genuinely believed it was Ringo that was "the Stupid Beatle"...?
Imus made history's shortest bumper out of Hey Jude."[Beatles] Hey [cut to choir] -mus in the morning."The interesting thing is that it was instantly recognizable.
The Fool on the Hill ...
Better to be seen singing "Fixing a Hole"...if he actually gave a damn.
Fool On The Hill
Why not sing Michelle?
The man does know how to deliver great material to the Republican Party.
Hey Jews, don't take it badObama hates you, it won't get any betterRemember to nuke Iran, but if youWant a friend, get an Irish setter

Another party at the White House.Meanwhile, the rest of America better get busy. Your taxes are going up.
I can imagine James Carville banging his head on a table at this gift of cluelessness. Crises? What crises? Let them eat cake while I sing with Paul...
Here comes the Sun...King.Help!Her MajestyI Me MineGlass Onion (Peeling back the layers, but nothing to see? Ok, that's a long shot).Fixing a hole was brilliant Tom!
“After the last eight years, it’s good to have a president that knows what a library is.”Hey asshole, Bush's wife was a librarian.Shut up and sing....minstrel clownJohn was always the smart one
A little known piece of Beatles trivia--the early working title for this song was "Ann's Lament".I'm looking through you, where did you go?I thought I knew you, what did I know.You don't look different, but you have changed.I'm looking through you, you're not the same!(Sorry Ann, I could not resist!)
Baby you can drive my car.Does that make me a racist?
I don't mind the song, though I can't bear to listen to it start to finish. And I don't mind Obama chilling even during crises. But it is unseemly for Obama to do this so soon after McCartney embarrassed himself by telling America it's not allowed to criticize its own president.Obama should have coupled his fun moment with a lecture on democracy (of course, someone would have to explain it to him first, maybe TOTUS could lead him through it).
Not a Beatles song, but a McCartney song: Live and Let Die, of course, for so many reasons
Boma has failing freshman syndrome.He knows he is flunking out, the semester is over,he has to face the folks at home so while he still has a dorm room it is"PARTY ON".Seen all over party school campuses every spring.
well, this isn't a beatles song, but seems apropos. "Put down that weapon" by Midnight Oil:"Above the waterline/Point the finger yeah point the bone/It's the harbour towns/That the grey battleships call home"And if we think about it/And if we talk about it/And if the sea goes boiling black/Can you tell me what we'll do about that?"Or maybe "Earth and Son and Moon":"There’s the contours of the mountains, the deserts and plains/And a hurricane is blowing, and it turns once again/Now there’s oil spills in the water where columbus once sailed/And there’s history and mystery and it’s rolling away"i think Obama is making a political mistake by not seeming involved. obama is the one who says government can solve every problem, so he needs to look engaged. of course the truth is that goverment can't solve every problem, and in fact the problem of deep water off shore drilling was created by people who refused to allow it on land, but oh well.
"I'm a loserand I'm not what I appear to be"
"Nowhere Man."Big time.
George wrote and sang "Taxman" - and he was the smart Beatle. McCartney - what a maroon.
Whenever I see public figures trying to look cool, like Obama does in the "Na, na, na, na" moment, I am embarrassed for them.I do not like "Hey Jude." (That's for you, too, Jude.)
Keep singing, Barack. Keep singing, golfing, vacationing and generally screwing off. It's when you go back to work that things go nonlinear. Someone please give the emperor his fiddle.

Helter Skelter would have been a good choice.
Didn't he and John Lennon move here to escape the ruinous taxes in England? Thank God for the Jonas Brothers and their statesmanlike behavior. Sorry, Paul, but when I think of the Obama administration, I think of the Jonas Bros.
You Never Give Me Your Money
He should have sang "Nowhere Man".
Obama "singing" Taxman. http://www.ebaumsworld.com/video/watch/80896425/
Wow.The Beatles were just made for Mr. Zero. How they do that?Must be the LSD they dropped.
These people, the whole Democrat party, appears to be forever stuck in 1968.And they all still think they're young, edgy and brilliant.

I'm quite sure that blacks nationwide were thrilled to see "their guy",Bam,singing..... Hey Jude.oh yeah...wv: merve,as in he's got a lot of...
At least he didn't sing Imagine like Clinton did.
Congratulations, all commenters who are in the [alt]house this morning. Amazing how many Beatles titles fit this farce perfectly. But Pogo definitely wins with "Hey Jews". Rock on.
Words keep flowing out......like endless text read from teleprompt......like rain upon my [something] leg......it tingles as it passes......posessing and caressing me...Ack, I am running out of steam, and this is starting to sound far too creepy. I'm going to bed. 'Nite all!
Woke up, fell out of bed, dragged the comb across my head.Found my way downstairs and had a cup, and looking up I noticed I would have been late if I had a job.
I have been lead to believe that "Hey Jude" was the quintessential drug song, that 'jude' referred to heroin. Thus 'letting her under your skin' and 'let it out and let it in'. Way to go President Obama. Did he have to take his foot off of BP's throat to tap his toes in time with the music?BP must be losing about half to a million dollars a day in oil floating away. You can be sure that their engineers, executives and other employees aren't doing concerts and golfing while this crisis is on going. Further, others in the Industry would be willing to help, as this could ruin things for everyone. I just can't believe that they are such morons that they can't, with their degrees in petroleum engineering and what not, figure out how to use James Cameron's suggestions. Perhaps if they hadn't short-cutted to permitting process, this wouldn't have happened. I am willing to believe that the White House would let this turn into a disaster as part of their campaign to wean us from fossil fuels, for our own good.
Clip didn't work.I kinda imagined "All you need is love"'cause they could sure use some now.

“After the last eight years, it’s great to have a President who knows what a library is,” McCartney quipped. Good heavens. What is Obama's draw? Why do the elites look to him with such regard? Has he done anything to deserve such praise?And seriously, McCartney is an Englishman; he has not had a president, ever. He should keep his thoughts to himself.And Obama, well he is just so smug looking. For all we know he doesn't even like the music. He is so good at hiding any emotion. He hid his discomfort up there and singing. Good body language readers saw him cringing that he had to get up there and participate.
Macca has succeeded in alienating millions of people who would ordinarily like him with his inane "library" comment. Was it worth it?
Went upstairs and had a smoke.Michelle spoke.And I knew I was in deep doo-doo.
/via Human Events"Hailing from England and having earned no university degrees of his own, the Beatle may not know W. was the first American president to earn a master’s degree in business administration. (The fact the MBA is from Harvard really irks the left.) Not to mention Bush is married to a librarian."http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=37350Paul McCartney is a fool.Paul McCartney is the kind of idiot celeb that would come back from the Soviet Union flabergasted at how "enlightended and progressive" it was. Shut up and sing bitch.
I once heard "Hey, Jude" as the vocal equivalent of urinating on the Mona Lisa.And I have never been able to disagree.Anent the poll: Hate the song and The Zero should actually try to do some President work for a change.
The Bush years were not good to Paul. His ex-wife took him to the cleaners. You'd think he'd have some sympathy for the taxpayers.John would have sung HELP
I probably shouldn't do this, but what the hell....Cedarford: Hey Jewed
Ron,"If McCain were there he could sing 'How Do You Sleep?' and piss off Paul AND Obama!"Beat you to it, kinda.
"Hey Jude, don't take it bad,..."Too late.
Damon,"Good heavens. What is Obama's draw? Why do the elites look to him with such regard?"It's not him, it's them.You've got to read the post to understand this comment. It applies to almost every everything today. Why do people love Oprah? Same thing. What I find wild - and I mean mind-blowing - is how few see it for what it is.

I thought "Hey Jude" was about, or to, John Lennon's son Julian. Probably completely wrong.Really enjoyed this thread. Good stuff with the songs.
Reader -Macca has said "Hey Jude" was written for Julian to comfort him after John and Cynthia (John's first, significantly less crazy wife)split. "Hey, Jules" and then turning into "Hey Jude" as a universal signifier.But here you go, Paul, put "Too Many People" on for a spin -"That was your first mistake /You took your lucky break / And broke it in two / Now what can be done for you? / You broke it in two."
Wouldn't Wings songs also qualify?In light of the immigration hubbub, I can imagine (heh--'imagine') him singing "Let 'Em In".
Hey Crude, don't make it badSuch a buzzkill on my vacationsRemember, Bush started all of this messBut still I confessI won't make it better, better, better, better, bahhhhhhhhhh!
What a bad visual impression. No matter what my rational minds tells me, I cannot help but feel that, somehow what I'm seeing is wrong.Ugh.
Nobody went with Octopus Garden? Of course with all the oil the garden would be ruined so maybe that makes sense. Although you would think that an octopus would be perfect for this kind of job what with the 8 arms and all. @ Pogo +10@ Palladian +9@Largo +9 & +9 deadman bonus pts@ Milwaukee The mythos holds that Paul sang it to Lennon's son Jules to cheer him up as Lennon was off boinkin Yoko. When they recorded it was changed to Hey Jude. Don't know if its true. Don't really care
Paul's obviously using that same discriminating discernment with Obama that he used with his former wife.
People here refuse to accept the Jonas Brothers as the official troubadors of the Obama administration. This is probably because no one can recognize or name a single Jonas Brothers tune. What, you may ask, have the Jonas Bros ever done except look young and handsome and appeal to the inchoate sexual longings of little girls? Precisely.
To Obama: "Fool on the Hill," "I'm Down," "Help!"And if Clinton is the audience: "She Said, She Said," and a cover of "Devil With the Blue Dress On"
What, you may ask, have the Jonas Bros ever done except look young and handsome and appeal to the inchoate sexual longings of little girls? Precisely.I try to dismiss those things as too cynical to be true. But my own late father once told me that my mother had voted for JFK because he was handsome. And he was never one to mock. Your insight explains a lot.wv: "hands". Across the water?

Just remember - " Mmm,I get high with a little help from my friends, / Mmm, I'm gonna try with a little help from my friends."Joe Cocker video version is most appropriate - the sortta spastic motions as he croaks and squalls are the perfect visual for BHO.
Most excellent, Thin Man.
You forgot a choice:Paul should sing and shut the fuck up about everything else and the Prez should turn his job over to someone who is actually awake.
Aurelian said... and the Prez should turn his job over to someone who is actually awake.Sounds good, until you realize that that person would be Joe Biden, then, not so much.
Obama cut taxes for most Americans. Tax rates are lower than in decades. Facts don't matter for the right wing mouth breathers, though. You guys are so divorced from reality it's not funny.
*ba-da-bump*[cue laugh track]you funny man Alpha
You guys are so divorced from reality it's not funny.The President's singing "Nanana na" while the gulf fills up with oil and WE'RE divorced from reality!(I mean its like, its like.....reading "My Pet Goat" while a disaster is happening.)
Alpha, Do You Want To Know A Secret?
Alpha, the little secret is this: Happiness Is A Warm Gun.
Does Alpha believe Americans' taxes have been too high?
Ha ha Rahm Emanuel got caught not paying his taxes.
Paul, you married Heather Mills and you make fun of how not smart Bush is?

Looks like AlphaLiberal's singing "Keep Your Hands Off My Baby", or perhaps "Twist and Shout":Obama cut taxes for most Americans.Tax rates are lower than in decades. (He neglects to mention that as Obama's economy continues to obliterate jobs and impoverish Americans, we can expect income taxes to continue to go down. No income = no income taxes.)
I'd say that this poll shows how conservative Professor Althouse's readership is. 80% think that Obama's wrong for attending an awards ceremony and singing along? Wow! I suppose he should be in a bathyscaphe staring at BP's gusher instead.
Libtard: Wow! I suppose he should be in a bathyscaphe staring at BP's gusher instead.No dumbass. He should be fullfillng his duties as required under the 1990 Clean Water Act: "requires the President to ensure effective and immediate removal of an oil discharge and, where there is substantial threat to public health or welfare, requires the President to require all Federal, State and private actions to remove the oil discharge or mitigate it."Oil is hitting beaches across the Gulf, and our Diversity Hire wants to party all the time.Michelle: "Let them eat crabcake"
