Kids' Obama Song Sparks Debate

Ad Feedback

A group of New Jersey elementary students are getting lots of attention for their song praising President Barack Obama as the nation's first black president.

The YouTube video shows students from B. Bernice Young Elementary School singing, "Hello Mr. President.  We honor you today. For all your great accomplishments, we all do say hooray."

More than 200,000 people have watched the song and some are even upset, saying the kids were "brainwashed" to praise the president.
