Obama administration jonesing for Jonas

Posted by Elizabeth Stewart - email

(WFLX) - While the Bush White House put out behind the scenes videos of Barney the dog, the Obama White House just released behind the scenes video of these three young pups: the Jonas Brothers.

They performed at the White House last month to honor Paul McCartney. Who could forget the Presidential sing along? Who could forget Commander in Chief karaoke? And the Jonas Brothers seemed to love hanging out at the White House. "The biggest honor we may have in our career to this point," said the brothers.

Hobnobbing with Seinfeld and McCartney, looking slightly awestruck, gawking like tourists as the Presidential chopper landed. McCartney asked the Jonas Brothers to cover a Beatles song. Mccartney was awarded a Library of Congress prize and the whole event is now a PBS special.

But there was one memorable moment from that evening's festivities that got chopped. Remember Paul McCartney's dig at former President Bush? "After the last eight years, it's great to have a President who knows what a library is." Well the producers of the PBS special decided to delete that, saying the comment was made after the official program had ended and after President Obama had already left the room.

Hard to believe it's almost 50 years ago that Paul and The Beatles were being chased by teeny boppers. Nowadays, it's Justin Bieber who's working like a dog and getting mobbed by teenage girls.

At least Mahlia Obama didn't go all Bieber on the Jonas Brothers.
