Toby Keith Praises Obama

The big patriotic country star has come out as a Democrat and offered up praise for Barack Obama. Although it's much easier today to take a stand against the failed GOP policies which have nearly destroyed America as we know her, I respect the guy for adding his voice to the chorus. Especially considering his musical genre, who's listeners were a target audience for the Rovian bullshit administered during the Bush administration.

Country folk accepted Bush as one of their own and took him at his word while all the while he was chuckling at how he had fooled them with his fake "I'm one of you" personna. God bless 'em for seeing through the big act and being righteously pissed off about being fleeced by "W The Snake Oil Peddler":

Keith has said in the past that the 2002 song _ which included lines aimed at the Taliban like "we lit up your world like the Fourth of July" _ was more patriotic than pro-war.

Asked while promoting his new movie "Beer For My Horses" about the role of patriotism in the current presidential election, Keith replied: "There's a big part of America that really believes that there is a war on terrorism, and that we need to finish up.

"So I thought it was beautiful the other day when Obama went to Afghanistan and got educated about Afghanistan and Iraq. He came back and said some really nice things.

"So as far as leadership and patriotism goes, I think it's really important that those things have to take place. And I think he's the best Democratic candidate we've had since Bill Clinton. And that's coming from a Democrat."

The Freepers, of course, are now targeting him with a vengeance, threatening to "Dixie Chick" the Nashville star for his stance. Much like how I started listening to the Dixie Chicks after their patriotic stance against Bush, I think I'll be checking out some Toby Keith cds here in the near future. . .

I'll leave you with this message from "the Chicks". . .
