Around 1953 I was six and Andy Griffith was appearing at the Dixie Sherman Hotel in Panama City. The local radio station played a few of his performances.

One was Romeo and Juliet and another was the football one. I think there were a couple more but can’t remember them.

You know, for my entire life, when I’d run across an old “Andy Griffith Show” on television, I’d invariably leave it on and watch it. Even the color ones, with Emmett and Howard Sprague. The show was a fixture.

But ever since Griffith did that Obamacare endorsement, I just haven’t been able to bring myself to watch a single minute of the series. I knew for ages that Griffith was both a lib and a miserable cuss in real-life, but it wasn’t until he got in bed with Obama that I just couldn’t stomach it anymore.

We had this on 45 rpm when I was a kid. Hilarious.

Was being the key word. Now it’s just a train wreck.

Excellent sushiman: This You-tube recording is more complete than other versions there have been posted.

Didn't Andy have a story about 'carrying 50 pound sacks of sugar into the woods' as his first job?

Try to give Andy a pass on this one. Lots of folks get talked into doing something wrong "for the good of the country." And think about the kind accommodation Griffith gave to Howard McNear (Floyd the Barber) after McNear suffered a stroke.

I don't see evil in Griffith's left leanings. I see a certain stupidity, which is more easily forgiven.

You beat me to it. I was going to post almost the exact same words.

I was disappointed in his doing the Obamacare commercials, but I attributed it to the fact that he was old and that he really believed what he was saying. The Andy Griffith show is still a classic and I love to watch it. It always uplifts me no matter how many times I’ve seen them.

“I was disappointed in his doing the Obamacare commercials, but I attributed it to the fact that he was old ————”

So you equate being old with being uninformed or stupid?

Hmmmm!

No, but the elderly can be easily duped. I think they’re very trusting.
