Mitt Romney has a better chance of beating Barack Obama by sticking to the issues, because in the singing competition, Romney is JV all the way.

Mitt's version of "America the Beautiful" in Florida last night was -- well, to be generous -- pitchy.
 
Obama blew everyone away with his abridged rendition of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together."

It seems to us ... Romney played right into Obama's hand by exercising his vocal cords.  So we gotta ask ...

What is your point, TMZ?

One shouldn't sing the National Anthem unless they are really good at it? How very patriotic in sentiment.

Don't tell me the election is going to come down to an American Idol type competition.

His singing isn't very great.. but the crowd ate it up and he used the song drive home points in his speech.. So I say it was smart. He still a total douchebag though.

Well, then maybe Obama should take up singing. I'd be so excited that he was out of the White House, I just might buy his album. But seriously, it's not a singing contest, is it? Romney would put Obama to shame as our President and I don't think he's too concerned if people approve of his voice. At least Romney won't destroy our country. Sadly, Obama was counting on the stupidity of the American people to focus on what a "charmer" he is as opposed to focusing on his total inability to lead.

How sad to see that TMZ is part of the liberal media that will attack the Republican while supporting the Democrat. It is Patriotic to sing America the Beautiful whether you have a good voice or not. It's funny you don't come down on Obama for "butchering" our country.

Actually his singing wasn't bad. He stayed on pitch, and the song sounded nice. He didn't oversing it as many poeple do and he remembered all the words. I sing in a Barbershop Quartet and he would be fun to harmonize with.

Romney is a complete tool.

It's unbelievable when you have the rabid Tea Party contingent allowing this guy to be the GOP nominee. The guy is the biggest corporate d-bag.

Butchered, my eye. That was decent. It could have been a lot worse. He stayed on key and sang a good portion of the song. Obama only sang one line, TMZ. You get too easily carried away.
