Presidents Who Performed In Front Of A Live Audience

Presidents Who Performed In Front Of A Live AudienceThe other day, President Barack Obama sang “Sweet Home Chicago” on PBS along with BB King, Mick Jagger, Jeff Beck, and Buddy Guy.  The group of famous musicians were performing at the White House as part of a PBS taping for Black History Month. The President proved that he has a pretty good voice when it comes to singing the Blues.  In the past, presidents and presidential candidates have often taken to the stage to show that there is a human side to them and to relate to the general public.  This was not the first time that President Obama has done this.  Just last month, he sang “Stay Together” in Harlem, New York with Al Green and totally nailed the song.

Five Other U.S. Presidents Who Fired Generals

The news is busy today with the firing of General Stanley McChrystal, the administration’s leading General in the war in Afghanistan and replacing him with General David Petraeus, the former lead General for the Bush administration during the war in Iraq.  I have already seen reports criticizing Obama for his response, yet, even if he kept McChrystal on as the General, there would have been commentary from the media.  This got me to thinking, “What other Generals have been fired through American History?”  The founding fathers were deeply concerned about the presence of a standing army, having witnessed how European armies had been used against civilians to collect taxes and to brutally keep the population under control.  Having the President as Commander-In-Chief of the armed forces helps prevent a coup from happening.  Here are five other times the President had to act like Donald Trump and say, “You’re Fired!” Read more…
