As President Obama addressed the crowd at a breakfast fundraiser in San Francisco Thursday, he fielded some audience input that he wasn't bargaining for.
A woman in the crowd suddenly rose from her seat and said: "Mr. President, we wrote you a song," according to the White House pool report. The president attempted to quiet her, but the woman and her table of donors at the St. Regis Hotel breakfast broke into song and raised signs that read "Free Bradley Manning"--the Army intelligence specialist accused of releasing diplomatic cables to WikiLeaks. Yesterday, it was reported that Manning had been moved to a less restrictive prison following pressure from human rights groups.

The protesters said they had spent $5,000 donating to Obama. "We'll vote for you in 2012, yes that's true. Look at the Republicans--what else can we do?" they reportedly chanted.
"We paid our dues. Where's our change?" they sang.
You can watch a clip of the protesters below, via the San Francisco Chronicle:

Not trying to make a statement about it, so it can stay on the entertainment side of ChiefsPlanet and we can laugh at everyone involved...

I don't think it's worthy of DC, now that I think about it. It should just be deleted.
