Americans will be "f****d" if Barack Obama gets re-elected ... this according to Beach Boys singer Bruce Johnston.

Bruce was signing autographs for fans in New York yesterday when the conversation turned political.

"Obama's an a**hole, "Johnston says ... adding, "Unless you're interested in never having any money and being socialized."

But Johnston was an equal opportunity disser -- saying, "And who's the Republican a**hole?"

"Our guy isn't any good."

He continued, "You got Reagan and Tip O'Neill ... those are the last two good guys."

"Wait 'til Obama doesnt have to try anymore," Bruce added .. "you're f****d."

“”Wait ‘til Obama doesnt have to try anymore,” Bruce added .. “you’re f**ked.””

Succinct and accurate.

For those that are concerned about our country and don’t know how they are going to vote, consider the following. A little mushy but it hits home. After listening, then make a decision who you want as our President. I think it will be quite evident. http://sagebrushpatriot.com/america.htm

I call Bruce “The Knife” because his harmonies in California Girls and God Only Knows cut through like crazy, in a good way. He wrote “I write the Songs”.

and to think good thinking men like this used to represent the state of California and the entertainment industry instead of the leftist idiocracy it has become today.

It amuses me that Barry Mantilo sings "I Write the Songs" and he didn't write that one.

Actually, he didn’t, not on the album at least. They recorded a bunch of stuff with some of the Beach Boys and Toni Tenille, so they were credited on the album, but none of that was included on the final cut. They re-recorded it with other backup singers for the final version.

Their new song, “that’s Why God Made the Radio,” is exceptional, and sounds just like tho original group.

Agreed! I think the album is going to be just as good, LS. Comes out in June. So refreshing once in awhile to hear something other than rap and warbling TV talent contest winners!

I’ll bet all the Beach Boys will be voting Republican this fall. They just ain’t saying so as not to ruin this tour or alienate any lib fans. This tour is a retirement fund moneymaker. The only Beach Boy I could see possibly voting Obama would be Brian Wilson. Look at Al Jardine...no way is he an Obama voter. Mike Love? No way!

That one was brought to the Beach Boys by Al Jardine, who was (is?) a folk song junkie.

And that is one thing about the Beach Boys (and other groups, notably the Beatles): the affiliation of very distinct musical personalities that can occasionally produce amazing albums, even though the work is quite stylistically diverse.

The Beach Boys were one of Ronald Reagan’s favorite groups.

During the Reagan years, they performed at least once at the White House and at least twice at the Washington monument for July 4th. And it could be more if my memory is correct.

I got to see them twice for July 4th on the mall.

Actually, the story goes that Manilow, aware of his rotten reputation, as a rock and roll artist, persuaded Bruce to take credit for I Write the Songs, and the rest is history.
