Toby Keith Throws Support Behind Obama

Country Star Says Democratic Candidate 'Best' Since Clinton


POSTED: 8:53 am EDT August 20, 2008

LOS ANGELES -- Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama is getting a little bit of support from one of the big names in country music.

Toby Keith said that he's backing the Illinois senator and fellow Democrat.

Keith is best known among non-country music folks for his post-Sept. 11 song, "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue."

The song features lines aimed at the Taliban in Afghanistan like, "We lit up your world like the Fourth of July."

But Keith has said the song was more of a patriotic tune than a pro-war song.

The county music star said that he was impressed that Obama visited Afghanistan to learn about the region.

Keith, a self-described Democrat, said Obama is "the best Democratic candidate we've had since Bill Clinton."

    Than someone who doesn't understand the Constitution and the people who hate it and want to change it, like Obama. Toby Kieth is awesome but , obviously can't make good choices in politics for America.

    LOL. President-Elect Obama TAUGHT Constitutional Law. Where do YOU teach?
  • chief graymåtter 2008/11/26 14:42:07
    chief
    I know about his "teaching". It's all about the 14th Amendment, nothing else. Who said I taught? Most just want to argue, not learn something they don't know. I will do seminars , though. and everything I say is backed by proof that you can research for yourself. I just don't see what all these supporters see in Obama, it's a fad. It's sad that they really think he is going to put this government back on track with the Constitution. His record says the opposite. Especially on the Second Amendment.

    "teaching"? So you're saying you don't consider his teaching valid?

    That's the thing, I know alot of "rednecks" because I love NASCAR and they're voting OBAMA. It's about the war and the economy. They stopped waving their "my president right or wrong" a long time ago and don't trust the GOP anymore. It's very basic, fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. That's their thinking.

    But he hasn't been a lifetime Obama supporter, and that is what this poll is about.
  • chief mentone... 2008/11/25 16:09:12

    No one even heard of Obama before last year. No one still knows where he was born or what his "changes" are. Stupids.

    LOL! Did you even watch the videos? My point in posting them was to prove you were wrong (big surprise!) about no one hearing about him until last year. I'd like to thank you for giving me yet another opportunity to prove a neo con wrong!
    HAPPY THANKSGIVING! =D

    And you don't? You just said above that "no one even heard of Obama before last year". That's entirely untrue and shows how out of the loop you are in regard to American politics.

    Paying attention? You self righteous libs are in for some surprises, don't you think. I wonder what all of your smartmouth comments you learned in gradeschool will get you when you are betrayed again by your false "hope" in Obama.
  • graymåtter chief 2008/11/26 15:37:01
    graymåtter
    Oh, sure. We're all in for some surprises. These are "interesting" times.

    Oh, and chief? I didn't learn my "smartmouth comments" in grade school. Though that may be the typical level of discourse you employ, my verbal style is more a hybrid of academe, tech and the United States Marine Corps, of which I am a proud veteran.

    You? Ever serve anything but fries or your own ingrained prejudices?
