What song should blacks or the middle class sing to Obama?

Yesterday, President Obama attended  three fundraisers in New York city. A $15,000 per ticket with Jewish leaders at the Upper East Side restaurant Daniel on 65th Street. Next, the President attended a dinner at director Spike Lee’s apartment on 63rd Street. About 40 people were expected at that event, and tickets cost over $35,000. And finally, $100.00 per ticket fundraiser at the historic Apollo theater on 125th Street. So last night when I heard that President Obama song a little Al Green I wasn’t surprised. Like many black men my age, 45, I grew up in a house that was alive with the music of Al Green, Marvin Gaye, BB King, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, and many others of the era. Just like any unfaithful man who has betrayed his lover, the first thing they say is “I’m so in love with you”. But I wondered what song would the 20% – 25% of unemployed blacks sing back to Mr. Obama. Maybe a little Al Green also. Enjoy.

Or my favorite for the Stealth Republican in the White House:
