Via The Hill:
A subset of the Marine Corps band struck up one of Mitt Romney’s walkout songs while President Obama was greeting visitors at the White House Independence Day celebration.
A White House pool report said the band struck up Rodney Atkins’s “It’s America,” and described it as an “awkward moment.”
The president and first lady Michelle Obama were hosting service members and their families on the South Lawn of the White House Wednesday evening to mark the Fourth of July.
Military families were treated to an evening of barbecue, fireworks and a music concert featuring the Marine Band and country music star Brad Paisley.
