Obama’s jobs creation record is second only to his signature legislation, Obamacare.

“The worst act to show up in Nashville since Billy Ray Cyrus.”

Everybody rags on Billy Ray, but I have a friend in the business who has interviewed him a few times, and spent time with him. He tells me BR is a very nice, down to earth guy. He also says that Billy’s business model is “make hay, and as much as you can, while the Sun shines. I think that’s Miley’s philosophy too. Get it when you can, the retire, and enjoy life. Billy is!

Not the right Gore shack . Gore has downsized in Nashville and is more green now. This is it.

Nashville Musicians Rock For Obama
Posted: Jan 06, 2008 11:34 PM CST

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- People in Iowa aren’t the only ones who love Barack Obama. In Nashville a group of Obama supporters put together a concert to rally voters for support.

In Music City, the group “Nashville loves Barack Obama”, had a concert to build support for the Presidential candidate.

About 100 people showed up to Sunday night’s event at the Exit/In. The group also registered new voters before the January 7th deadline to vote in the primary and gave out campaign paraphernalia.

Bands participating in the free concert included Hey Penny, Darnell Levine, The Lonely Hearts, Biscuits and Gravy, and The Lister Brothers (Jeremy and Richie).

No, he is auditioning for the Grand Ole Opry. I don't think he will do well, as he can't do anything right.

Good point. I don’t think the president ever publicly expressed anything about the terrible Nashville flooding. It’s as if it didn’t happen. The MSM barely covered the flooding either.

Please stop calling him “president”, it makes my skin crawl. Call him the illegal dictator.

"“Your request for confirmation comes as a surprise to me because the band has never commented on their political affiliations nor do they plan to in the future.”

I'm not a country music guy, so I don't really know anything about either band. But I was pleased to see this comment from Lady Antebellum's publicist. I think it's very smart for celebrities to keep their political views to themselves, lest they pi** of a lot of potential fans.

Unless, of course, political commentary is their thing. In which case, we need a lot more bands and musicians to speak their minds through their music!

I should say, conservative bands and musicians should speak their minds through their music.

Please, dear God, do not allow this man to be assassinated in Nashville, or any place else. At this point, he is more useful to the totalitarian Left dead than alive. They will use his death to turn this country into one of their "locked down" cities like Watertown, Massachusetts, and take our freedoms, our guns, and our religion.

A prayer I never thought I'd pray: Lord, preserve the life of Barack Hussein Obama, or whatever his name is.

I want him to be alive for his trial.
