Toby Keith: Good As Ever(his observations of Iraq do not jibe with MSM's gloom and doom)
CBS Early Show ^ | 6/22/05

Posted on 06/23/2005 1:32:18 AM PDT by Dane

It wasn't his first USO tour of those two nations: "Last year when I was over there, I didn't feel like it was anything we could ever win. But this year ... four out of five of the Iraqi people would wave at the choppers (that his group flew around in). Iraqis want our great boys and girls over there. They're tasting freedom for the first time."

What's the best part about doing a USO tour? "Just being able to bring a part of America over to them," Keith responds.

Keith says he finds inspiration while on the many long bus trips his tours entail.

I really like this guy.

He is such a breath of fresh air compared to the libtards like Linda Ronstadt, Baba Streisand, Bruce Springsteen, the Dixie C**ts and the rest.

Good for Toby!
He's good for the troops,
and that's good for us all.

Originally posted pre-election, '04 - and yes, I know this is not a "blog", but it fits so well....thought this would be an appropriate spot for it.

Sung to the tune of "I Love This Bar", with apologies and props to Toby Keith:

We got Freepers,
NROers,
And lefty-lurking troll smoke-blowers.
We got yuppies,
Soccer mommys,
And some sneaky little peekin’ commies -
Just get lost if you’re a welfare-cheatin’ hog…
Hmm, Hmm, Hmm, Hmm, Hmm I love this blog


We got Wall Street,
We got cowpokes,
We got porters, merchants, cops and old folks
Lefty teachers,
Pink-o preachers
They slip in here to try to reach us,
But take off if you’re a Chirac-loving frog..
Hmm, Hmm, Hmm, Hmm, Hmm I love this blog


Chorus:
I love this blog
It’s my kind of place
Just to double-click the icon
Puts a big smile on my face…
No liberal spin,
No left-wing smog…..
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm I love this blog


We love Dubya,
We love Laura
And Rummy, man, he’ll never bore ya,
Condoleeza,
Tommy Franks, too
People we owe lots of thanks to -
Re-elect ‘em and we’ll leave the libs agog
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm I love this blog

Chorus:
I love this blog
It’s my kind of place
Just to chase those thin-skinned liberals
Puts a big smile on my face…
No liberal spin,
No left-wing smog…..
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm I love this blog
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm I love this blog
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm I love this blog

Who are Linda Ronstadt, Baba Streisand, Bruce Springsteen, the Dixie C**ts... I like REAL WOMEN like Joan Jett, Martina McBride, and real Men like Toby Keith, Darryl Worley, Ted Nugent...


Best way to hurt the left is to avoid their BS as much as possible. I know by myself it doesn't matter... but if we all turned our backs and made some noise about it....!

Toby will also appear with Sean Hannity at the upcoming Freedom Festival at the Six Flags in Jersey (I Believe) , and has long been a supporter of our troops and their mission .. .. ..

I remember an interview with Toby Keith some time back where he said he wasn't sure about the propriety of the Iraq war, but he definitely supported our efforts in Afghanistan. Appears he may have changed his mind regarding Iraq.

However he personally feels about the war in Iraq, or anything else, he has always supported our troops. He's a real class guy, and I'm happy for his success.

Surprisingly enough, Tim Mcgraw is also very anti-Bush.

Why is this guy a Democrat? i like him he is obviously a patriot but why in God's name would he be registered as a Democrat when they obviously do not reflect his views

Could be the "my daddy was a democrat, my granddaddy was a democrat" legacy.

Toby is from Oklahoma, they do have a democrat governor, but that was due, IIRC. to a three way race in 02, but Oklahoma also has 2 of the most conservative Senators, both Pubbies.

I've heard him say some things that sure sounded anti-Bush to me too, but I cannot give you a source or anything. Just wanted to back up the other poster who wrote it.

I know he is kinda star-struck by some of the big-libs out there, maybe that is why.

i dont think the article does but he campaigned for the Dem governor of OK and stated in an ABC interview that he was a Dem and everyone was surprised by it (no duh)
he did say he wanted Bush to win so he does have that going for him

I cannot provide a link, but he campained with JZ (you know, the hip-hopper, Beyonce's boyfriend) and I heard them interviewed together and JZ said he wanted Kerry to win and GW to lose and Tim said me too.

He did have some reservations, but apparently he talked to the troops and they helped bring him around. Only wish certain Senators would give our troops actually in the middle of this fight the same respect.

Toby's the old school Democrat. Back when the Majority were Patriots. Stand up guy.

Pretty much. In terms of registration, Oklahoma still has more Democrats than Republicans.

And you know, even if Mr. Keith didn't support the war in Iraq, I would still hold him in high esteem. Apart from his obvious support of the troops, it seems to me he has the class not to be a pain in the backside about his political views and that is so admirable because such a quality is so rare for the Hollywood and other entertainment types these days.

He supports the troops. But 95% of his music still sucks.

My friends say the same thing. They think I'm nuts for liking his music. Guess it would be a boring world if we all liked the same thing.
