I love children deeply but this is really disturbing. Children are too young and innocent to know what they're singing here and to treat any politician as a savior of any kind is so manipulative and frightening. And I'm an optimist, folks. Jesus Camp, Hitler's Youth.... I know this country is in need of something to feel good about but seriously - am I really the only creative who loves children who thinks that this is creepy and misdirected? Sing the praises of the people of this country, of our nation, of our founding fathers or of your god of choice - not one man to save you. Especially a politician! Are we really that broken now? Are we really that lost? Have we really lost that much faith in ourselves? In each other?
