Sen. 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.
Keith has said in the past that the 2002 song which included lines aimed at the Taliban like "we lit up your world like the Fourth of July" was more patriotic than pro-war.
Asked while promoting his new movie "Beer For My Horses" about the role of patriotism in the current presidential election, Keith replied: "There's a big part of America that really believes that there is a war on terrorism, and that we need to finish up."
"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."
Shut up and sing!
He wants a Grammy.
So I'm suppose to be impressed that a DimocRAT offered up praise for another DimocRAT? Who knew????? Perhaps if he had given praise for a conservative I might think better of him.
A FOURTH Dixie Chick?!!!
So does he support Bill Ayers?
Well, Toby, you should be really happy when you hand over a much larger chunk of your paycheck to the gooberment if Obambi is elected.
Toby Keith has always been a Democrat.
First thing that came to mind.
Add a D and take away the Ch
Toby, switch to rap music.
When your worth 80 or 90 mill whats the diff.
Another reason to not like country music.
I never checked it out. His patriotic songs led me to believe otherwise. If he’s pro-military and supports Obama he’s a gifted idiot. That’s all I can conclude. I guess he can get in line behind Jackson Browne.
I believe he is patriotic, that being said it doesn’t mean he’s a genius.
I really didn’t need FORD guy to be a moonbat. It’s not cool at all.
