(Newser) – If President Obama absolutely killed Al Green's "Let's Stay Together," Mitt Romney has apparently responded by just plain murdering a patriotic standard. The Republican candidate was caught on camera last night at a Florida campaign rally warbling "America the Beautiful," which the Washington Post notes he has often called his favorite patriotic hymn. The unguarded moment on the eve of the primary is a departure for Romney, but the clip prompts Pier Morgan over at CNN to joke, "I think this could be an actual issue."

Listen up Americans! " ♪ America...America....G-d shed his grace on thee... and crown thy good with brotherhood " ♫ As it is written: " Then His brothers and His mother came, and standing outside they sent to Him, calling Him. And a multitude was sitting around Him; and they said to Him, “ Look, Your mother and Your brothers are outside seeking You .” But He answered them, saying, “Who is My mother, or My brothers? ” And He looked around in a circle at those who sat about Him, and said, “ Here are My mother and My brothers! For whoever does the will of God is My brother and My sister and mother . ” ...Mark 3:31-35 He that have an ear, let him hear.
