Original title: Tony Bennett: Obama is America's 'Greatest Accomplishment,' Not Sure if Fighting Hitler 'Justified'
---------------------------

Appearing as a guest on Monday's Piers Morgan Tonight on CNN, singer Tony Bennett declared that President Obama is the "greatest accomplishment that the United States ever came up with," and expressed admiration for the President whom he labeled as "more than intelligent."

A bit later, when asked by host Piers Morgan whether he believed war was ever "justified," with Morgan specifically asking if it was "imperative" to "defend yourselves" against Adolf Hitler in spite of the "collateral damage," Bennett, a World War II veteran, was not so sure:

That's a very difficult question because I think we should have a society of highly educated, intelligent people that will think realistically about how to do things. When I said to you earlier that the lowest form of nature is to kill someone, it's the lowest form of humanity, that's the bottom of the line. So we're actually intellectual cavemen at this point.

Wow, what a way to cap off your respected career as a total dipshit. First with the 9/11 remark and now this babble about captain zero. I guess it is better to burn out than to fade away.

Just like so many others.... Tony just can’t resist. The temptation of celebrities to snuggle at the feet of liberalism is apparently insurmountable.

And I was once a fan...

I’ve often heard that wisdom comes with age. When I hear that, I think in the back of my mind, “hmmm, that might be true sometimes...but there’s no fool like an old fool.”

This is almost as sad as watching an ancient, addled, mumbling Andy Griffith and bald, aging Ron Howard reprising the Andy and Opie roles in those pro-Obama “hope and change” political commercials back in 2008.

A truly pathetic sight...

I guess he has no opinion on Obama using predators to kill many people daily.

Maybe Roseanne will have him killed to re-distribute his wealth.

Amen Skeeter! I was just thinking it might be time to drop a note to the Giants and let them know that change can be good and it is time to change things up a bit and drop Tony.

Mr.Bennett or Mr. Benedetto meet Mr.Soerto, or Mr. Obama.

Two people who don’t know who they really are cannot be expected to know much of anything;)

So just shut up.

And just when you think the left wing Absolute Stupidity Threshold has been reached, some d*mn*d fool entertainer comes along and raises the bar.

A big round of applause for mr. tony bennet everybody, a man whose marginal talent greatly surpasses his intellect.

He probably grew up admiring his paisano, Benito Mussolini...so has a hard time thinking badly of Mussolini's ally, even if he served in WWII in the European theatre.

Yes, those were troubling.

The arrogant, lecturing tone on how we are somehow bad people if we are afraid of "change", when in fact, the "change" was only presented in shadowy platitudes.

These commercials would be good GOP commercials in 2012

America's Greatest Accomplishments, The Journey.

The Journeys vary from:

abandoned child, later spoiled child when typical white folks tried to make up for the hurt, spoiled brat, egotist Marxist and Alinsky acolyte; and

spoiled child, spoiled brat, egotist acolyte of Alinsky, Marxist statism advocate

I saw Tony Bennett once at Cincinnati Music Hall, maybe 30 years ago.

He brought 5 fiddle players and no rest of the band.

Haven't respected him since then.

To be fair, Bennett said the election of an African American president is the country's greatest accomplishment. He didn't exactly say that Obama himself if the greatest accomplishment.

Anyway it doesn't matter. He is wrong on both counts.
