Toby Keith Praises Obama
Tuesday, August 19, 2008 5:30 PM
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.

Did he smoke too much pot with Willie or something?
Na, he wants a Grammy.
He must not write his songs.
Good Toby b/c We're About to Steamroll his ***
Under Sen. Obama, Keith’s famous line would be, “We’ll put a soft pillow under your ass...”
TK has always been a Dem. To my knowledge, he’s not loading his concerts with Obama crap, so I don’t mind.
Everyone is wrong sometimes.
The hell with Willie and his ‘herbal medicine’! Toby just made a movie with Ted Nugent! Not only that, this movie is about to be released (”Beer for My Horses”). Uncle Ted will not be pleased that the star of a movie he’s about to be seen in will be making such an idiot statement.
I think the Nuge is about to put on his war paint and head out to track down Mr. Keith and “re-educate” him.
A year from now Toby will be lucky to be th new opening act for the Dixie Chicks and A Dancing Bear Act in Oshcosh Wisconsin...
Toby! Toby!.....socialism and good ‘ol boys don’t go together. Didn’t daddy teach you anything?....
We don’t pay him for his intellect, but for his voice. I can’t boycott his music as I don’t buy country CDs anyway—country is just on in the car, to horrify my neighbors. But at least now we know that Toby is no smarter than the average performer, which isn’t saying much.
Toby is now just one step from Branson?
This is nothing more than a slap at Hillary coming from a guy who wants to win a Grammy.
What you are witnessing before your very eyes is the melt-down of another dufus entertainer as he sucks up to the party that is the antithesis of his natural fan base.
If I got bent out of shape over the politics of every group I liked, I wouldn’t have many to choose from. People can believe whatever they want. Just because I disagree with them doesn’t mean I should demonize them. Honest debate among good Americans is good for the republic.
*deletes Toby Keith from my iPod*
He did say that obamaboy was the best dem candidate since slick willie. What choices have they had,edwards, kerry, hilliary and obamaboy. Dang what a bunch of losers.
Toby supports the troops but he’s always been a dim.
I’ve never been a Toby Keith fan, but I gotta admit that “How Do You Like Me Now?” is a very good tune.
Toby = Dopey
Oh, no! Not Toby! Geesh! I just don’t understand how otherwise seemingly intelligent people can listen to this guy (Obama) and think he would be good for our country.
Toby’s career is doing fine at the moment. He has a new single that will be in the top 10 when Billboard releases their new chart. Not bad for 8 weeks in release. But nothing lasts forever.
A lot of country acts are libs, including Tim McGraw & Faith Hill who went on TV spouting about Katrina.
;) Hey I know where he can get a booking, free PR, free intro for possible “endorsements,” cool fishing stuff and all.
I was going to freepmail you something on this very subject today (LOL).
LOL you mean like this guy?
[ I still like Toby ]
This can’t be the same guy who recorded THIS song?
Toby, we’ll put a boot in your ass—it’s the American way.
From “American Soldier” to American nitwit.
I dunno about pot,but he’s apparently been drinking a lotta Kool-Aid.
Good grief...he IS witless,isn’t he?
I will never trust a guy named Toby, and I’m so damn glad I never paid a dime for any of his “music”.
Toby wasn't a real cowboy but rather he was a cheerleader at the University of Oklahoma.
Now Toby's in the movies and hanging around the Hollyweird folks so he suddenly has become an expert on all things politics.
I like Toby’ songs but his choice of presidential candidates leaves lots to be desired.
Toby is just wanting to be on the side of most other celbs. Remember his feud with Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks. She sided big time against Bush.
Toby Keith fast forwarded next to the Dixie Chick file.
Sadly, he fell off the bandwagon.
‘and was impressed by the senator from Illinois.”
Doesn’t look like it takes much to impress Toby.
He better not sing ‘How Do Like Me Now’ in front of a live country crowd.
Exactly. So, a lifelong Dem supports Obama. HUGE shock right there. The guy has never hidden the fact that he’s always been a Democrat. He sings one “boot in your ass” song and Conservatives think he’s on our side now, praising him as the greatest singer of our times, giving him all the hero worship they can muster. Now, the Dem praises Obama and it’s “Shut up, jerk! You’re an awful singer”. As you can tell, I’m not surprised. I saw through the facade right from the beginning.
There is a website that is “giving away” 2 foot corrugated plastic campaign signs that you can design with your own colors, text, etc. Shipping is about 10. I am not posting the link because it might be considered spam....but I imagine there are alot of people on this site that could get quite creative.
I’m still pi$$ed at him and his bar in Las Vegas for charging me 6 bucks for a bottle of beer!
Yeah, I think he’s in CYA mode..
Toby was born and raised a democrat. The boy can’t hep it.
Well Keith represents the Confederate Flag wavers supporting Obama voting block.
He may or may not write his own stuff. Who cares? ANy of these entertainers who think that their opinions on anything other than their particular craft matter are no smarter than the people who listen to what they think. I don’t care who they are. I was in a local songwriter hangout last week and some guy at the bar started on politics (and he was a conservative) but I just tuned him out. I leave my politics outside when it comes to playing or writing songs.
I gave Toby entirely too much credit for having a brain.
He turns out to be another nut like those in Hollyweird.
I find myself wondering why Obama is having problems selecting a running mate and it dawned on me maybe they are telling him in private “ NO THINKS “
Governor Kaine of Virginia must not of got the memo!!
People really pay too much attention to the opinion of entertainers in my opinion. Toby is a good singer, that’s all. He has the right to vote for whoever he wants and it doesn’t make me dislike his music, but nobody should be looking to him or to any other entertainer for political commentary.
I have no problem with him being a Dem or supporting O, as long as I haven’t paid $150.00 for a ticket to get a political lecture.
