Andy Williams: Obama Following Marxist Theory

By Wyatt Earp | September 29, 2009

Andy WilliamsWow, how bad is it when Andy freakin’ Williams starts attacking you? Seriously??

RT sent me this, and I laughed out loud when I read it. I mean, really, it’s Andy Williams! Who even knew Andy was still alive and kicking?

Williams, a lifelong Republican whose hits include Moon River and Music To Watch Girls By, told the Radio Times he thought Mr Obama wanted to turn the US into a “socialist country”.

The 81-year-old was a friend of the Kennedy family during the 1960s and was present at the Los Angeles rally where Robert F Kennedy was assassinated in 1968.

“I was very close to Teddy Kennedy, too, and his death recently brought it all back. What a tragedy. Had he lived, I think Bobby would have been a great president.”

Notice he didn’t say he thought Teddy would be a great president.

But Williams had a less favourable opinion of the current president.

“Don’t like him at all,” he said, “I think he wants to create a socialist country. The people he associates with are very Left-wing. One is registered as a Communist.

“Obama is following Marxist theory. He’s taken over the banks and the car industry. He wants the country to fail.” (H/TUK Telegraph)

Okay, this is funny because getting slammed by Andy Williams is like being slammed by Pat Boone. I mean, it’s like getting ripped by your grandfather. That being said, the guy is just plain wrong.

Now, don’t misunderstand. I am not a fan of President Obama, and I think, thusfar, his policies have done far more harm than good. And while some of his oldest friends and casual advisers are people of questionable moral fiber, I don’t think Obama is following Marxist theory. I also don’t think he wants the country to fail, if for no other reason than his enormous ego would never let that happen on his watch.

Do I like the man’s policies? No. Do I want to see him reelected in 2012? Hell no. Do I think he’s a Marxist/Socialist/Communist? Absolutely not. If you want to claim that some of his policies have socialist undertones, I won’t object too much, but please stop with the demagoguery. It doesn’t help the conservative cause.

    The conservative cause had better get up off the ground and find someone able to lead us out of the mess we are in or we will be doomed to have a National Health Care, Cap and Trade on Energy, several new Czars in charge of our banking, automobile Manufacturing and student Loans and the entire home loan business. Now if that isn’t the road down the path to socialism, I don’t where else to look. It is not demagoguery to say it it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, look out for the poop on the sidewalk.

    Heh. It would have been great if Williams said, “Hey, punk! Get off my lawwwwn!”

    Seriously, I thought he had died.

    It seems to me he is as close to a marxist as we have ever had in terms of a president. I base that on a) his grandfather who helped raise him was a marxist b) his grandfather’s friend Beard was a marxist and little Barak would visit with same with his grandfather c) It has been stated the guy who greased the skids so Barak could go to Harvard was Saul Alinski. Certainly, Obama used him as a mentor in terms of his “community organizing” in Chicago. Alinski, in my view, was just a more virulent Michael Moore. d) he had no problems going to billy Ayres home to launch his political career. And finally, when he is elected he hires admitted commies and other left wing nuts to run around the whitehouse trying to resurrect Karl’s Proletariat nonsense one more time.

    I guess my view is he is right of Karl, but just barely. I hope that does not sounds like demagoguery.

    But hey, I am keeping my sense of humor.

    And with the proposed health care and cap and tax plans they themselves are practising a bit of ..dema-gouge-ery.

    After conducting a poll at the Brooks house the beliefs
    are as follows:

    Avowed marxist..1 vote
    Worst President we ever had, but not neccessarily a Marxist..1 vote
    Don’t know..1 vote
    The coolest evah..1 vote
    Shoulder shrugs and “I dunno” .. 2 votes

    The last 4 are the visiting grandkids and mom

    The man is a classic narcissist, in my humble opinion. He loves seeing himself on every channel but FOX news and he loves the sound of his own voice. At some point, someone needs to tell him the country..not so much because he will never come to that conclusion on his own.
    Yep, the guy just got *itch slapped by Andy Williams and his dulcet tones.

    Sully – I’m not for going way overboard with the Obama Derangement Syndrome.

    Dennis – I’ll call him a Socialist if and when he implements it. Until then, I’ll let others make that claim.

    RT – Better if he was holding a shotgun at the time.

    Ralph – I won’t begrudge anyone who feels that way, but I am not prepared to go there. His policies lean toward socialism, but I don’t think we’re there.

    Jon – He is definitely not the worst president ever. Not yet, anyway. Carter, Wilson, and Harding were historically worse.

    MeToo – He should have done it while singing “Moon River.”

    Wow, this from the mouth of a white, senile, bigoted, washed up singer (Andy Williams). Due to their lack of leadership, ideas and vision of where our country needs to go the Republican Party is show casing the only thing they have to offer, the scraping of the bottom of their intellectual barrel.

    Paul – Wow, you sound rather bitter. Oh, from the look of your IP address you’re from California. Hell, if my representatives were people like Barbara Boxer and Nancy Pelosi, I would be angry all of the time, too.

    Oh, and “showcasing” is one word, big guy.

    No I was representative by “Family Values” California state assemblyman representing Orange County, Republican Michael D. Duvall. He resigned for apparently not cheating on his wife with a lobbyist or two. Well you have to take his word for it, or maybe believe that hypocrisy has been bred in. In my opinion the Republican Party has been taken over the most extreme religious right (people who love to push their beliefs on others while trying to take away rights of those they just hate) and that’s who they need to extract from their party if they real want to win. Good Luck, because as they said in WACO, “We Ain’t Coming Out”. He is just another name that can be added to the list of “Republican 2009 Summer of Love”: Senator John Ensign (NV), Senator Paul Stanley (TN), Governor Mark Stanford (SC), SC Board of Ed Chair, Kristin Maguire (AKA Bridget Keeney). But let’s get back to the real problem of political corruption, does anyone think this will get investigated and that things he voted on will need to be affirmed by the remaining members or will nothing happen? Do I hear Tammy Wynette, “Stand By Your Man” playing in the background? I remember not so long ago that other Orange County song favorite, “Stand By Your Tan” (for Tan Nguyen). But that’s another Orange County fool. Live the drea Earpie.

    Paul – See, there ya go. If you were someone who actually some did research on a blog before you went tolling along, you would see posts like these:

    And those are just the ones I found in the first five minutes. I pretty much rip any politician that makes a jackass out of himself/herself. But hey, why let facts get in the way of a good trolling, huh?

    And for God’s sake, find yourself a Heath Handbook and a spell check. You go away now.

    Earpie: No, my response was to your assumption as to who was my respresentive. Good try, you get a “C” for effort. I know boo hoo, your party lost and you cannot reconcile that an educated, articulate man is now in the White House, poor little you. You would rather the previous ex-drunk dullard be in-charge, we all can readily see how his foreign and domestic policies have left our country in financial shambles. I know Andy Williams is old and senile, what is your problem?

    Congrats Wyatt. Looks like you got yerself a new pet troll.

    Maybe if you ignore Paul he’ll eventually go away.

    Paul — I used to live in CA myself (the People’s Republik of the SF Bay Area). My first two kids were born in Berkeley, fer Chrissakes!

    –I was bitter and grumpy too, until I escaped to a much more intellectually-free locale. Urban CA is extremely intolerant and philosophically constipated.

    –If you’re truly open to criticism of both sides of the political spectrum (and I agree with you & Wyatt that both sides profoundly deserve it!), I suggest you consider moving eastwards. deM

    I believe our current President is an ABSOLUTE MARXIST & is anathema to AMERCAN values. Stalin and Obama are bed-fellows. God Forbid!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for covering my dad’s big hit–BUTTERFLY way back in 1957, Andy! Both versions hit Number 1 on Billboard. A great honor!
