Toby Keith: Obama's 'Best Democratic Candidate We've Had Since Bill Clinton' Toby Keith Praises Obama Tuesday, August 19, 2008 By Ryan Pearson, Associated Press

Los Angeles - Barack Obama is getting praise from Nashville, courtesy of one big, patriotic country star.

Toby Keith, perhaps best known to non-country audiences for his post-Sept. 11 song "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue," says he's a Democrat, and was impressed by the senator from Illinois.

Well, what's that say about Al Gore or John Kerry?

Toby Keith just needs to shut up and sing! My good buddy, who just finished his second tour in the Sand Box as an infantyrman kicking down terrorist doors, saw through Keith from the start, despite that "boot in the ass" song of his, calling him a phony and a liberal tool.

I guess Toby Keith didn’t like Kerry, who, by the way, has a TV commercial out featuring an Iraqi war veteran who says Kerry helped him get benefits. Plus he threw the opening pitch at a Red Sox game, etc.., all due to Kerry.

I think Toby Keith is not that well informed about the real Obama!

Keith has said he is not a Republican. Still for a guy who is supposed to be a patriot, how can he be impressed with the far left wing Demo candidate? The guy has a known American terrorist as a confidante, for crying out loud.

He couldn’t possibly have meant a word in that song - or there’s no way he could still be a democrat - or support Obama. He must have just been doing it for the money. He has probably sung that song a thousand times or more, and apparently, the words have never sunk in.

I doubt Obama would “put a boot in your a$$” to the the muslim terrorists or see it as the “American-Way”.
More likley they would have put a thumb in their a$$, its the Liberals way. I thank the Lord that we had W in office when 911 happened, Algore and the liberals would not have taken any action except maybe push for more gun control and beg Obama Bin Laden for forgiveness for causing him to attack us.

No, Toby's entitled to his opinion - even if we think it's wrong. The Dixie Chicks dissed our country and the President while abroad in a time of war. Toby stated his opinion to an American newspaper.

Toby has said he comes from working class Democrats. Superficially, BHO is appealing. Looks like Toby has not dug deeper to find - nothing is there with BHO.

Apparently Toby has decided that he wants the respect of the Hollywood crowd more than the Nashville crowd. Grown too big for his britches, I suppose.

His loss.

It’s a real shame, because I so love that song, and I would burst with pride whenever I saw the video of him singing it in front of the troops.

Toby Keith is so funny because I was noticing how he sure liked to put up an image, but when you got down to it there were signs he cannot put up with pressure and seems to want to run with the crowd. He has clearly shown what a fraud he was making all those millions. Anyone voicing praise for Obama shows where they really stand and Toby belongs there.

Et tu Toby? No, I still have a hard time believing this. In fact, no where does he say he’s supporting Obama... just that Obama’s the best Democrat since... and that ain’t saying much. I suspect he’s trying to walk the line here. But being a lifelong Democrat if he is supporting Obama, he’s probably listening too much to his union buddies at the Ford plant.

There were signs when he was ‘fighting’ with the Dixie Chicks that he was a wimp and couldn’t take it and wanted to run with that crowd. He’s had his gimmick that made him his millions. Big fraud just as all Demonrats are.

Toby’s a great singer and being from the south the fact that he’s a Democrat is a given, there are many more registered Dums than Repubs down there. But nobody, and I mean nobody, has ever accused the boy of being smart.

Or the Chevette was the best car Chevrolet made since the Corvair.....

This is going to hurt Sean big time. This guy is supporting the troops like crazy (supposedly)(Maybe just publicity) and then sings praises of commie ombami who would rather work out than visit wounded troops.
Did he use Sean? What’s the saying in publicity, “Just get my name right” or something like that.

He sure revelled in all the attention at the Freedom Concerts hosted by Sean Hannity.

All the pretending he cared about the troops when it was all about free publicity. Now he s votes for the single most military hating candidate in memory.
