Has Barack Obama turned himself into Lonesome Rhodes from the underrated but BRILLIANT movie "A Face in the Crowd?" Something about Obama whining that "If you love me, you got to help me pass this bill," about his jobs bill (is it in writing yet?) sounded familiar. I kept thinking and thinking where I heard that theme before and then it hit me...at the end of "A Face in the Crowd" in which a disgraced Lonesome Rhodes is begging for love. Watch the VIDEO and you can see Lonesome Rhodes begging for love at about the 35 second mark. It sure sounds familiar.
Mike Wallace=Chris Wallace
Lonesome Rhodes Pitching VitaJex=Andy Griffith Pitching ObamaCare
Man, that picture of the FLOTUS features it all:
- Huge overbite
- Wookie hair-do
- Boob belt
- Large hips
- UnFLOTUS-like activity
Mel Miller=James Carville
Lonesome’s Arkansas Trip=Barack’s Bus Trip (any of them)
Yeah, I noticed that, too. Like the song...Obama is just "Looking for love in all the wrong places." But, I guess that's all he has left - college kids with sophomoric ideals and no life or real working experience, who are still dependent on Daddy's wallet or the taxpayers' pockets.
Ad Executive Tossed Under the Bus=Elizabeth Warren (or fill in name) Tossed Under the Bus
Mean Jail House Sheriff=Mean White House First Lady
The movie was filmed three years before the start of The Andy Griffith Show. Griffith, who had made a name for himself in a Broadway play called “No Time For Sergeants,” was well-known in the industry. His sitcom was actually a spin-off of The Danny Thomas Show.
what a great movie...
I was referring to the Andy Taylor character - so different from Andy Griffith the Democrat.
I’ve heard stories that the real Andy Griffith is a lot closer to Lonesome Rhodes than he is to Andy Taylor.
That is my understanding also.
Of course, the writers were responsible for the Andy Taylor character. When it first aired - Andy was a bumbling rube - but that role was moved over to Barney Fyfe and Andy became wise and ‘normal’.
It’s always possible the writers were snidely insulting country people - but I loved all the story lines and the characters.
Noting that Ron Howard & Andy Griffith are both left leaning libs...there had to be some ‘Lonesome Rhodes’ attitude on that set.
My favorite character was Otis.
