What video? Apparently Keith says that he never claimed he was voting for Obama.

Way to go, Toby. I'm glad I bought a number of your CD's over the years.

This election has some weird dynamics.

A week or so ago, you had Dan Rather of all people coming out to defend Sarah. Then there was the NOW lady. now Toby Keith.

Read a review of the new album...so I was doing a stroll down memory lane.

My taste runs to classic country—but Toby is the best ‘new’ performer out there. Heck of a song-writer.

He looks soooo gay in that photo. I like the guy, but that picture has got to go.

Another answer to prayer! I pray every night that the Lord will open the hearts of the electorate and show them that this is the greatest nation on earth, has been since it's founding, founded on His principals, His laws. And we need to keep “O” from being elected in order to keep it the greatest nation on earth, founded on Christian principals.

I knew Keith was voting “O” and the fact that he switched is exactly what I have been praying for. I will keep praying, as I know TKeith is not the only one who came to his senses.He is one more good man who was misguided. Welcome home Toby!

Recently, Toby said that he switched to being an Independent because the Democratic Party left him and is now run by kooks.

You are absolutely correct. His father was a very good, God fearing, flag waving veteran, conservative Democrat. Above all, however, he was a hard working HONEST man, who demanded the same of his kids. His Dad flew the American flag every day, rain or shine. I can understand why “Hurricane Sarah” appeals to him.

His family is like a lot Democrat Oklahomans. They cannot understand what has happened to their party. I can’t either.

Believe what you want, but Keith never said he was voting for Obama. Get over it, indeed.

http://www.cmt.com/news/country-music/1596198/toby-keith-registering-as-independent-voter.jhtml

Keith also cited erroneous headlines and reports in the media indicating that he supports Democrat Barack Obama.

“I said that he had a chance to win it as the [party’s] best candidate since Bill Clinton,” Keith said. “I said McCain is very able to run this country, too. Very qualified. ... They didn’t put anything about McCain and Palin. They just put that Toby Keith supports Obama.”

Keith said the Democratic party no longer represents his views.

“I’ve been a lifetime Democrat, and I’m re-registering this year as an independent,” he said. “It’s strictly [because] my party, that I’ve been affiliated with all these years, doesn’t stand for anything that I stand for anymore. They’ve lost any sensibility that they had, and they’ve allowed all the kooks in, so I’m going independent.”

Well well, Toby was for Obama before he was against Obama.

Our Sarah has that effect on people.

With all due respect, and I know how hard it is to deal with life long friends on this; you have to stand your ground. Don't go cower in the corner when someone like that starts spouting the hatred.

I'm not saying respond in kind, just be firm in your convictions, and/or at the very least, ask them not to bring up the subject in your house while they're YOUR guest.

In auto’s defense, Toby did say months ago, that thus far he was voting for “O”, but it seems Sarah gave him better reasons to vote for McCain/Palin. Thank God!

“FYI...Toby Keith is voting for Obama...”

I was all prepared to call you a troll.

Then I looked at your start up date, and thought, “damn, that’s a long time for a troll.”

Then hit Yahoo and looked around, and damn if Keith doesn’t praise Obama to no end in multiple articles.

A reminder that all entertainers need to “shut up and sing.”

(Oh, I will never buy or listen to anything Keith puts out again.)

Clean out your ears, he was on Fox ‘n Friends on a Saturday morning. Toby Keith stated he was voting for Obama. I was stunned that he would back Obama after singing about patriotism. Sorry if you don’t believe me; but it’s apparent now to me that Toby Keith talks out of both sides of his mouth.

Patrick I wouldn't trust Huffing and puffington post. They HATE Toby, have since the scuffle with Dixie Chicks. In fact they supported the DC in their attacks of him, and he just laughed at them, which made them even madder.

I know how hard it is to deal with life long friends on this

Its actually easy. You just smile and say, hey, you're talking to the wrong guy(girl)... I love Sarah. Say it sweetly with a smile and it puts it back on her.

I was talking to a black preacher some time back who went off on a rant about Condoleeza... I don't agree with everything she ever did but his attack was uncalled for... I said with a smile, hey I love that lady, she's one of the smartest people out there... it caught him completely by surprise and he started backpedaling right away. I just kept smiling. In his world he never imagined anyone actually liked her. And probably in Dalton's world she never imagined anyone normal likes Sarah. Its the opposite of course, normal people are drawn to her, they recognize her as a kindred spirit. Not perfect, but good and decent.

That’s more or less the gist of my point. However you do it. But it can be hard to deal with a good life long friends on such matters. Lessor arguments have broken up such relationships before.

Highly unlikely - he actually endorsed Bush and campaigned with him in '04.

Would that be..."Palin envy"?

Maybe he is a Zell Miller type. The old Dem Party has been hijacked by these communists.

Shame so many democrats fail to see it. I know many, who still vote for them, pay a very little amount of attention to what their party has become.

Guess that is the danger that Washington reminded us about with party politics.

Good Sarah shook him up.

I was honored to meet Lacy once, and I think she is unquestionably the greatest female country singer in the world, and has been for the past 30 years. But I knew about her politics and made it a point not to bring that up. I have a feeling she must have heard some of the countless false rumors about Palin ginned up by the loony left ("she shoots wolves from helicopters!" etc.) and believed them. Being such an animal lover might have something to do with it, too.

BTW, I usually just cross entertainers off my list when they start spouting leftist drivel, so I hardly see any movies anymore. Lacy J. Dalton is the only one I make an exception for. She'd have to start openly promoting Marxism like Barack Obama before I'd deprive myself of hearing her sing.

This is interesting, because my understanding is that Keith is a dyed-in-the-wool Dem.

They're called Reagan democrats or blue-dog democrats.

I think the biggest shocker was Alec Baldwin - after he met her on SNL - he was very taken with her - (I hear a chill breeze wafted over Hell at his complimentary words.)

Absolutely spot on. One of the oldest tenets of civility. Do not be rude in someone else's house - nor allow someone to make you uncomfortable in yours.
