"wants the respect of the Hollywood crowd more than the Nashville crowd"

that list keeps growing....Timmy "Indian outlaw" McGraw and his phony plastic wife Faith....that's quite a name for a two timer....live in Hollywood IIRC...

to be fair, concerts for the troops shouldn't be Rat or Pub.......its for the troops period....

but since Oliver North and Sean are running the dang things, they should maybe pick people who they agree with politically....

Another overpaid, mediocre at best celebrity. Shut up and sing, Keith.

I guess you don’t really care about the “Red White and Blue” Toby.

I knew he was suspect after his interview with Glenn Beck. His comment on gay marriage was a dead give-away.

Maybe he’s being subtle. What does “best Dem candidate since Clinton” mean. Not much I would say since Clinton got 43% of the popular vote.

This Keith guy says he’s undecided. This statement is pretty good:

“Why anybody would care who Toby Keith voted for is beyond me,” he (Toby Keith) says. “I’m really digging in and getting myself educated right now, but people need to go educate themselves and not listen to moron celebrities.”

I could not agree with the statement more. Who cares? I like his music, and I really appreciate his dedication in visiting and performing for the troops and marines.

He is free to vote for whomever he wants. I will still buy his Cds.

How can Barry be considered a person who supports the troops when he blew off a visit wounded troops for a chance to visit a posh gym in Germany.

This is Keith’s hero?

I thought Toby Keith was smarter than that. He certainly didn’t give me the impression that he was a dim. Too bad - he seems like a pretty decent guy otherwise.

I’m a Toby Keith fan and I’m with you. These kind of statements from Keith don’t surprise me. Contrary to popular belief, Keith has always tried to tow the middle when it came to politics.

Toby who??
I can't tell one song from the other. So Keith likes Bubba Clinton and Barry Hussein? He just put a boot in the ass of what little career he had left. Big and stupid.

Toby Keith: Obama's 'Best Democratic Candidate We've Had Since Bill Clinton'

Wow. Not much of an endorsement. Are we sure Toby's not pretending to be a Dimocrat? He's dragging Obambi into the slime-cesspool that was the Clinton administration? THAT is an endorsement?

What is it about actors and singers that makes them think we give a rat’s patootie what they think?? Keith is a good singer who needs to kep his yap closed unless he’s onstage singing.

Apparently, these egotistical, brain dead idiots have failed to learn the lesson of the Ditzy Twits - Shut up and Sing!!!!

(Needless to say, Keith has permanently removed himself from MY playlist!!)

Maybe he’s been hanging around the Hollyweird types too long. It helps him in pushing his new movie, that’ll go a long way in getting additional work in Tinseltown. It’s all about $$$.

Toby Keith, if you are lurking, get this:

You are the number one guy except for The Empty Suit himself who I wish would just STFU.

EVERY TIME my Sooners play on national TV, there you are, jumping out in front of the camera like you're somebody.

To paraphrase Laura Ingraham, just STFU and sing and you'll be much more popular around here.

Toby Keith: Obama’s ‘Best Democratic Candidate We’ve Had Since Bill Clinton’

Considering Bubba, Al and John Kerry (and the Mos Eisley Cantina crowd they beat for the nomination)...that’s setting the bar pretty low, isn’t it?

"I run into “oldschool” Democrats everyday who have no idea their party's been taken over by Communists, gays, and traitors.

I used to know an old hard working gentleman who happened to be illiterate. In each election he would look for the picture of the donkey and vote straight party Democrat. He said, "The donkey stands for Democrat. Rooooooooooseevelt was a Democrat, that makes me a Democrat."

Rote behavior keeps a lot of the elderly voting Dem every election and it's reinforced by the Democrats successfully convincing them that the GOP wants to take away their social security.

Toby Keith is a good guy, but he has a brain the size of a chestnut.

Then again, when you compare Obi-One to the other Dem candidates since Clinton (Gore, Kerry), Toby may be on to something. It's hard to be worse than those two clowns, though Obi-One is trying.

Celebrities like Keith and Ludacris don't pay attention to news or know whats going on.

They are probably casual watchers.

The last news he watched might have been back in March.

“So I thought it was beautiful the other day when Obama went to Afghanistan and got educated about Afghanistan and Iraq. He came back and said some really nice things.

“So as far as leadership and patriotism goes, I think it’s really important that those things have to take place. And I think he’s the best Democratic candidate we’ve had since Bill Clinton. And that’s coming from a Democrat.”

Seems like tongue-in-cheek parody.
I don’t believe it.

He's 'covering his ass' after what he said on Glenn Beck:

During Keith's appearance on the July 30 broadcast of Beck's show, he remarked,
"I think the black people would say he [Obama] don't talk, act or carry himself as a black person."
"What does that even mean?" the audibly shocked Beck replied.
"Well, I don't know what that means," Keith drawled,
"but I think that that's what they would say.
Even though the black society would pull for him I still think
that they think in the back of their mind that the only reason he is in
[the general election] is because he talks, acts and carries himself as a Caucasian."
