House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) is demanding that Paul McCartney apologize for expressing his gratitude that America again has a president "who knows what a library is," Human Events' Connie Hair reports.
"Like millions of other Americans, I have always had a good impression of Paul McCartney and thought of him as a classy guy, but I was surprised and disappointed by the lack of grace and respect he displayed at the White House," Boehner said in a statement. "I hope he'll apologize to the American people for his conduct which demeaned him, the White House and President Obama."
Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh call President Obama all sorts of names on a daily basis, and pretty disgusting and evil names at that. I won’t bother to find links. You know what they are. "Nazi." "Socialist." "Racist." Someone who is working actively to "destroy this country." These insults go out over the national media to a listening audience of several million people. That is apparently fine with most everyone, based on the collective yawn from our national media. Just people exercising their right to free speech. Just "entertainment", you know. Yet, an aging entertainer whose best days are long past makes a small little jest about the former President at a private function with a limited audience, well… That cannot be left unchallenged! How DARE McCartney make a joke about President Bush! Even though many people, including many media figures, do just that on a daily basis… An apology must be forthcoming!
Sheesh. This guy is the top Republican in the House. 1) Doesn’t he realize or even care that he sounds like an idiot? 2) Doesn’t he have more pressing problems to deal with than demand apologies from entertainers?
I wonder what Abe Lincoln would think of the present day Republican Party? These people are morons who have absolutely no sense of responsibility to this country. Politics is just a game to them, but one that must be “won” at all cost, even if it does make them look like complete fools to the remaining 70% of the country who don’t think the same way they do.
