A little oops at the White House 4th Of July celebration Wednesday night. The Marine Corp band started playing Rodney Atkins' It's America for the president. The problem is that song has been adopted by Mitt Romney as his campaign song. It was an awkward moment. Shortly after President Obama ended his remarks and was shaking hands, the Marine Corps band played the same song that Mitt Romney using as his "walkout song." There was no comment from the Obama folks.
