491.) President Obama is defending the playing of a song at the state dinner given for China. The song comes from a chinese movie that depicts Americans as the bad guys and the PRC Soldiers as the good guys.

The fact is is that it is a anti-american song and they let it be played at a party on American Tax Payer dollars.
