What the…

Toby Keith says he’s a Democrat…what? Not only that, but he’s supporting Barack Obama in the coming presidential election. Wait…WHAT? I’m so confused!!!!

This is the guy that wrote the September 11th response song called “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American).” Here are some of the very democratic lyrics:

“Now this nation that I love/Has fallen under attack/A mighty sucker punch came flyin in/
From somewhere in the back/Soon as we could see clearly/Through our big black eye/
Man, we lit up your world/Like the 4th of july”

“Justice will be served/And the battle will rage/This big dog will fight/When you rattle his cage
And youll be sorry that you messed with/The u.s. of a./cause well put a boot in your ass
Its the American way”

The song is littered with those sorts of sentiments. Keith claims the song was “…was more patriotic than pro-war.” Um…we’ll put a boot in your ass, it’s the American way…that sound pretty damn pro-war to me.

Not only does Keith sing songs like this, he’s also the spokesperson for Ford trucks…you know, the HUGE ones with low gas millage that you see barreling down the street taking up a lane and a half just to get through…yeah, those. I mean, I know not all democrats are “green crusaders” so to speak, but they at least THINK about the environment every so often.

I’m all for Keith supporting Obama…if it’ll bring in some conservative voters to go the Obama route, more power to him. I just am pointing out a few inconsistencies that I see…I could be completely wrong here. I’m willing to admit that, I’m just not convinced.

    Dude, I remember hating that song and wanting to put a boot up his ass. Strange of him to declare that he’s democratic…yet kinda nice to see a bit of a “middle of the road” type supporter. I’m so sick of right and left being so divided these days. I’m sick of voting for issues that are important and then seeing nothing change about them. Oh well…so goes politics.
    I’ve wanted to call/write forever. We’re finally home and free as birds this weekend and in the week/weekend to come. Are you guys around this weekend? I’m hoping to call and have a big ‘ol chat fest with my buddy and I still haven’t managed to call Justin and give him a big “You Rock! Congrats on the sem plans!”
    So, yeah, let me know if you’re available sometime for a chat and I’ll ring ya 🙂 Love you, Sus

    perhaps he supports leeching off the govt, higher taxes, and supporting the lazy?

    HAH!

    a song with the lyrics “you attacked us, but we are a bunch of pussies so we are gonna hug you instead” would not have gone over very well on country radio now would it..?

    hey with all the recent polling Obama should use “Free Fallin” by Tom Petty as his campaign music

    Hey, not to be mean but toby keith has worked EXTREMELY hard to get where he’s got and he’s stood up for this country more times than one. Most of his best songs were written by him and he worked very hard to get them published. His famous song ‘how do you like me now’ was a huge controversal thing. the record company he was with wouldn’t let him release so he raised kane, ripped up his contract and then had to BUY BACK the song that HE WROTE. That was a brave move considering if it had gone south he, his wife AND kids would’ve been in bank ruptcy. Toby’s a great guy and it should not matter if he’s democtatic or a republican. Again i’m not trying to be mean but i have absolutely loved toby keith since i heard his song ‘i wanna talk about me’ and i have almost every cd he’s ever made. I don’t want to start an argument but every one has something that some one else doesn’t like but that doesn’t mean you have to pretty much trash them on the internet, (sorry but you kinda did). Anyways i hope what i’ve changed your opinion even if only a little and if it doesn’t then that is ok. Just try not publicize it too much because you wouldn’t want someone doing it to you. 🙂
    -sincerely, a Toby fan
