Brad Paisley Performs in Afghanistan with President Obama
radio.com ^ | 5/26/14

Posted on 05/26/2014 8:39:21 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Brad Paisley didn’t just spend his Memorial Day weekend cooking hot dogs at a neighborhood barbecue. The country superstar instead traveled halfway around the world to perform for U.S. troops.

And he made the journey on Air Force One accompanying President Obama and some of his advisers.

Some of us thought Brad "woke up" when he made fun of Obamacare on the Country Music Awards. He and Carrie Underwood mocked the Death Panel Law fairly mercilessly.

Paisley played one of the inaugural balls in 2013....and now, he reverts back to form--being a tool for the Marxist Obama.

Military deaths in Afghanistan have tripled under Obama.

Mr. Paisley should run with a better crowd. Guess I don’t need to listen to his music anymore.

Folks, I think it should be pointed out he went there to perform for our troops.  I don't see that as a bad thing at all.

I’ll bet the guys enjoyed Paisley’s show. I’m no fan of his traveling companion but I think its great that Paisley went to perform for the guys.

Some folks just let their hatred of O cloud their judgment. I think Paisley going was a good thing. Now, that might be an attempt at putting lipstick on a pig, but thats not the lipsticks fault.

Then he should spend his own dime to get there.

He is being used as a tool for Obama. He is either stupid or has no problem being linked up with the left.

I agree that performing for the troops is always a good thing but travelling with 0 is an endorsement IMO.

Paisley is one of the new generation of liberal country singers like Tim McGraw, Faith Hill and Keith Urban who are all Obama lovers. Screw 'em.

I'll stick with George Strait, Merle Haggard and Alan Jackson. Plus, we are blessed to have the recordings of Hank Snow, Johnny Cash, Buck Owens, George Jones, Ferlin Husky, etc. to listen to. Who needs the post-modern Nashville sound which is just rehashed rock and roll with a little bit of twang?

I applaud his traveling and performing for our troops.

Problem is, he's the main attraction -- his presence is primarily to bring crowds in for Obummer to claim. He's being used, and he apparently is okay with that. That's a shame.

Nevertheless, your point is valid.

And your opinion may be right. I don’t see it that way.

In this instance I see Paisley serving the office rather than this president. Paisley traveled to perform for the troops. He did so from the vantage point of being a guest of the presidency. Does that cause the troops to feel more, or perhaps less honored? I don’t honestly know?

I believe they appreciated the performance. I doubt they thought kind thoughts about bath-house Barry, but who knows.

If they couldn’t find 3,000 troops that wanted to come, they’d order them to. I’m not sure Paisley brought them in.

I have mixed thoughts on this too. Obama is a disgrace. There’s no question what a bad president this guy has been.

Is it still an honor to have the man who hold the office, there to address the troops? For the active troops, perhaps so. I’d like to think not, but even an idiot in the office (and that’s what we have there) still represents the presidency and the nation for them.

Was he using them? My take on it is yes. He doesn’t respect them. They’re fighting against his allies. I truly believe that too.

What drives the blade into some folks is the harsh political reality that this trip to Afghanistan was a show for Obama’s benefit and Paisley was a tool used by Obama to divert attention from the deaths of our veterans because of “waiting lists” at VA hospitals.

I agree on the issue of Obama’s motives here. There’s no question about it.

What should our people do then, refuse to perform for the troops until Obama is gone? Only travel separately and at great expense?

Perhaps that’s a valid plan. I’m not as opposed to these folks riding on AF1 as others of you are. That doesn’t make me right and you wrong.

If the CIC asks a singer to join him to sing to the troops on Memorial Day in a war zone, I don’t see how he can refuse. And he did spare the troops having to listen to whatever vile act might have gone instead. Besides which, Obama might develop some music sense from listening to some country music instead of that JayZ/Beyonce *rap..

I’m with you on this one. I don’t know much about Mr. Paisley’s politics, but I do know that if I was one of the men in that audience, I’d be mighty glad for the show.

That’s what it’s all about for me. I don’t think we should literally tee off on the guy for essentially doing something for the troops. I can understand why it tweaks folks though.

Exactly right about Paisley. He is an Obama lover and makes no apologies for it. As far as I’m concerned he’s no different than a Bill Mahr, Alec Baldwin, or a Michael Moore. Would there be freepers applauding them for ‘entertaining’ the troops too?

Good question. Still wondering why Paisley is aligning himself with this fool. He needs to remember what happened with the Dixie Chicks when they decided to flaunt their left wing views.

Country music fans won't like it, and have a great memory. Bet you won't see George Strait chumming it up with the pretender POTUS.
