Obama Music Band In Portland Often Opens With Soviet National Anthem

Sheesh! In an unbelievable display of a lack of common sense, the Obama campaign chose The Decemberists as the band to perform prior to the arrival of the Obamassiah last weekend in Portland. For those unfamiliar with the Decemberists, they often open their acts with a rendition of the national anthem...of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. I kid you not. I found one of their Soviet Anthem tunes on YouTube but the quality really stinks and all you see is mostly darkness and people yaketty-yakking in the background. However, you can hear and see the Soviet national anthem in a more entertaining venue in the Rocky IV VIDEO above. IMHO, Rocky IV was probably the BEST of all the Rocky sequels. Of great entertainment value was when the Soviet soldiers stood up in full uniform and bellowed out the Soviet National anthem as Communist flags with a grim Ivan Drago emblazoned on them rose into the air. Also of interest was the Gorbachev character in this flick who gazed angrily at his Sports Commissair after Drago was knocked out. And who can forget that terrific speech that Rocky gave to the crowd? Yeah, in the context of this movie the presentation of the Soviet National Anthem works from an entertainment POV but if you are a presidential candidate, do you really want to be fronted by a band who frequently uses that anthem as an opening. BTW, does anybody out there know if The Decemberists did play the Soviet anthem when opening for Obama in Portland?

One other thing of great interest in light of Obama's previous aversion to wearing the American flag pin. It turns out that in The Decemberists music VIDEO, Sixteen Miliary Wives, the EVIL American representative makes a point out of wearing the flag pin on his lapel. Yet more cluelessness from the Obama campaign. What next? Jeremiah Wright doing an opening comedy act for Obama?

They sound like a mix of Smashing Pumpkins and They Might Be Giants. Without the talent of either.

All snark and no talent. I can see why the Obamatons chose them.

Sooooo Scaaaaarrrry. I'll bet hearing 'Back in the USSR' is enough to send you wussed assed wimps over the edge. Disability claim? It might work. Go for it.

Oil got to 133 p/brl today, dumbasses. Oh sorry. We should be talking about the Decemberists.

See the disconnect? Probably not. It all probably makes perfect sense to you. Keep thinking it's all about the Decemberists, my friends. Nobody's foolin you bunch of Einsteins.

^^ Perhaps we're simply better at multitasking, and thinking about one issue doesn't preclude thinking about another?

Or maybe you're the idiot for posting comments on a blog specifically designed to laugh at the odd pecadilloes of modern Democrats (*gasp* I meant DemocratICS.. now there's an issue worthy of our time), complaining that the blog isn't about oil prices?

And pointing out the Obama campaign's reliance on teenage-style "edgy" Hot-Topic style components is simply giving us all another reason not to vote for his under-qualified arse come November.

And with McSame in office you can be sure a firmer rein will be kept on national security, which is more likely than Democratic indifference to relieve supply-side geopolitical pressures on the energy market..

Thus gas prices.

So there ya go. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Using a band like this, with school out and no entry fee doubtless swelled his numbers manifold at this shindig. Did the kiddies come to see him or the band?

We'll never know.

I wonder if the band set out to knock him, or if the 'bamalots just didn't bother to check to see if "Screw America" was on the playlist.

Obama's lack of patriotism, the callous disregard for all of us God-loving, Gun-clinging folk who CAN bowl isn't surprising.

He really is an anti-American, anti-Semitic, racist, elitist dork. These aren't "slips" or "gaffes", it's what he is.

In the final analysis, all this will really "come home to roost", and Obama will be found wanting.

A lot.

Indeed, a president with communist proclivities is "scaaaarrrry".

I'll bet hearing 'Back in the USSR' is enough to send you wussed assed wimps over the edge.

Says the courageous anonymous poster. Ha!

And as for the price of oil... who could be to blame?... It certainly couldn't be the DUmmies who have hampered every attempt to ween ourselves of foreign oil dependence.

Seriously, anonymous, is your family tree shaped a little bit more like a wreath?

More like a perfectly straight line.

Oil's getting that high because of all the noise Congress is making about suing OPEC and Bush begging the freakin ragheads (not once, but twice this year) to pump more of it. Anybody with a brain is realizing that gubmints (supposedly Capitalist gubmints) are agitating to follow Chavez, Putin, Morales, Fox and take over the oil business globally.

Marxists come in both Democrat and Republican flavors in this country and all of them are whining about "obscene profits" which only drives speculators' fears and they bid commodities (oil, gold, iron, copper, cereal grains, etc.) higher and higher.

BTW, how many of you can cite the sources and percentages of oil the US imports?

I'll make it easier: Which 3 countries supply 85% of US oil imports?

For extra credit, explain why 80% of Venezuela's oil MUST be shipped to the US.

Maxine Waters bore out my prediction today in the House show trial er hearings on the oil companies.

"...sputter sputter... we'll socialize, er take over oil production!..."

The commie agenda is rarely so blatantly displayed.

What the fuck are you talking about? It obviously hasn't occurred to you that "Screw America" has been on the playlist for the last 7 or so years. We're all so much better off, aren't we?

Besides that anon, "Screwing America" doesn't have a beat. You can't dance to it and the lyrics are remeniscient of a Ford truck commercial. Your song sucks.

The DUmmies are to blame? Right. Wasn't W recently in Saudi Arabia? Do you think he was lobbying for "oil independence"?

It's also notable that one party controlled every branch of our federal government for the past six or so years. That'd be you and your posse, anon. Great job with the 'Oil Independence' thing.

Uh, yeah. Trying to anyway.\

...lobbying for oil independence... BS!! -- he was begging the ragheads to indulge our addiction. He looked more of a loser than the crackhead on the corner.

T-man's calendar is hosed; the Dumbocrats have been in "control" of Congress for the last 3.5 years.
