Skip to comments.Garth Brooks on Obama: I Love Him to Death; It's Got to Be Hell In That Office
Posted on 03/22/2011 7:54:21 PM PDT by Justaham
Grammy award-winning singer Garth Brooks told CNSNews.com that he "fully" supports President Barack Obama and that it must be "hell" serving as President of the United States.
Before his performance at the Points of Light Institute's ceremony honoring former President George H. W. Bush at the Kennedy Center on Monday, Brooks was asked if President Obama has lived up to his expectations.
"Yeah, I think what President Obama is finding out is all that we want to do, the system kind of doesn't allow the most powerful guy in the world to kind of do his job and I'm sure nobody's more frustrated than him to complete those promises that he did and I think he's trying his heart out. I love him to death and I fully support him and I just wish him well because it's got to be hell in that office," said Brooks.
Brooks' comments come as many celebrities who supported President Obama in the 2008 election including Matt Damon and Barbra Streisand have publicly expressed disappointment in President Obama.

Well, now Garth can confidently state that he has friends in low places!
Garth sounds like he’s selling Nike basketball shoes...
Oh well, can’t blame him. Stay out of it, sing, play music...
Great musician, obviously not a deep thinker.
Would you please repeat that, Garth? In English this time.
We shouldn’t be electing people based solely on the color of their skin.
You Got That Right!
W....T....F????? This makes me sick to my stomach. I had no idea he was a lefty freak. Uhg.
I knew there was a reason why I didn’t like Garth......
Not surprised. He was a big Clinton apologist.
One less fan.......
Yeah, it’s hell taking back to back vacations in Air Force One.
Now, I'll sleep a little better tonight.
P.S.: If you have to listen to a left-wing C&W guy, try Jimmy Buffett.
He's liberal, but at least he's good.
Doesn’t come off to me as a very politically astute guy...sounds more like he doesn’t want to ruffle feathers or make headlines...seems like the type of guy who supports whoever is the president at the time
Don’t think it makes him a lefty or righty just apathetic to the whole political landscape
Well that's probably great for you Garth, but most of us are UNDERNEATH Obama and your extra weight ain't helpin' any.
What an idiot. Poor Obama, what a hard job. boo hoo. Maybe we can write a country song....
Well, Steve Wynn can just keep all his Garth $$. Now, I really don’t care to EVER see his show.
If his comments here get a lot of publicity, just watch how his ticket sales plunge for his shows at The Wynn. Predict this: the more this gets out, the smaller his audience there gets.
Its been known for over 10 years. Maybe more.
Jimmy buffet is a liberal? Wow any other country artists that are leftists besides Willie nelson and the Dixie chicks?
Maybe it was Chris Gaines.....
But Jimmy Buffet hates anyone named Bush. And he’s overrated.
Brooks sang in an HW BUSH event. Makes me sick to the stomach but I will give him a pass tonight because it was a Bush 41 event.
Garth has a couple of good songs, but he’s not a musician by any stretch. He’s a “performer.” He likes to attach wires and fly around stage and say LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME!
Now it seems he’s finally Dixie Chicked himself.
Garth Brooks has always been a leftist commie. Never been a fan - although I try not to let politics get in the way of my entertainment choices.
This guy is, apparently, a huge idiot.
Me, either. There was nothing special about this guy. Many, many more talented C&W singers out there.
Yeah, well, I’ve only known for ten minutes. I’m still pissed. LOL
Garth go back to sleep,we will wake you when a real American is President.
Always looked kinda crazy.
However, I'm a certified Baby Boomer, raised on The Beatles, Stones, Jefferson Airplane and every other political moron you can conjure up.
I love their music, hat their politics.
I can't spend the rest of my life listening solely to Debby Boone and Anita Bryant, talented as they might be.
Thankfully I have Alice Cooper and Ted Nugent to comfort me in my "darkest hours." :0)
2 words.... DIXIE CHIX
“Yeah, I think what President Obama is finding out is all that we want to do, the system kind of doesn’t allow the most powerful guy in the world to kind of do his job and I’m sure nobody’s more frustrated than him to complete those promises that he did and I think he’s trying his heart out.”
My thought also! I wonder if Garth would love Barry if Barry was a white guy.
Nah, I won’t judge you for whomever you want to listen to. I still remember listening to Buffet back in my frat days at university while getting stoned then I became a conservative and realized he’s overrated. Just wished these people would just shut up about their politics.
(I wasn't a "fan" but I did like much of his music. Note that "did" is past tense.)
Adios (figuratively), Mister Brooks, newly identified Marxist Obama bud and lefty creep.
Dear Garth, F you, and everybody that looks like you!
Sorry to burst your bubble, but Manilow is a left wing Obama lover as well...and I did so love his music!
Faith Hill and Tim McGraw
“it must be “hell” serving as President of the United States.”
Yeh all that Wagu beef, lobster and high end booze. So much decadence so little time.
You mean you didn’t see the attraction of a mediocre voiced fat blob stuffed into a pair of jeans 5 sizes too small?
If Springsteen gained 150 lbs they’d be twins.
Yeah, I missed it too
I don’t know much about Garth Brooks. Is he gay?
