Garth Brooks to Obama: I’m Shameless

“I think he’s trying his heart out. I love him to death!”

This quote came from someone that I would have least expected it to come from, especially about the person that was being discussed.

The once legendary country music star Garth Brooks is the person who said these words. The person he spoke so highly of is President Barack Obama. When I heard this very recent interview, you could have knocked me over with a feather, I was so shocked! It appears as though Mr. Brooks “fully” supports the President.

I am sure many people reading this may wonder why I am so surprised that a celebrity would be so enamored with the President. Throughout the campaign most of Hollywood has stumbled over themselves to make sure the world knew of their undying love for him.

However, most country music stars are more Conservative in their political views. Yes, I did say most country music stars, because I do realize that there are some who have been in country music who are far from Conservative. Oh, let me think- one group that comes to mind is The Dixie Chicks. I do find it interesting that with the exception of a couple of compilation albums of the “Greatest Hits” re-released, the Dixie Chicks have pretty much fallen off the face of the earth. Could it be because most country music fans tend to be more Conservative in their views, and when Natalie Mains went on her condemning rant of President George W. Bush many of their fans refused to support them any longer?

Now, I must admit, as a lady who absolutely loves country music, I was a Garth Brooks fan for many years. Notice I said was a Garth Brooks fan! I find his past behavior a bit neurotic- retiring, coming out of retirement, releases an album with an alias identity, going back into retirement, and now evidently he is back out of retirement and doing shows in Las Vegas. Maybe there is a reason for all of his confusion and indecisiveness.

It seems that maybe his confusion was caused by something none of us could have ever imagined. It appears to have been a very well-kept secret up until this point. But it appears as though the true object of his deep, soulful crooning from the very depths of his heart have been finally revealed. Strangely, it’s actually all beginning to make sense now!

Garth Brooks loves President Obama- to death! Wow! That is a very deep and soulful admission, Mr. Brooks!

While I supported President George W. Bush in a lot of his policies, there were many I did not. One thing I do love about President Bush- I never once doubted his love for this country and his commitment to keep her safe. Did I always agree with everything he did and every decision he made? Absolutely not! And I most certainly have never said, “I love him to death!”

So, in thinking about this latest interview with Mr. Brooks, I really began to think long and hard about some of his song lyrics! The song that comes to mind that seems to speak the true feelings of Garth Brooks’ heart is his seventh Number 1 hit “Shameless”, which was on his album Ropin’ The Wind. The song itself was released on September 10, 2001.

Things are starting to actually make a lot of sense now! Billy Joel is actually the one who wrote the lyrics of “Shameless”.  And it has been no secret at all that Billy Joel is a very strong supporter of Barack Obama!

Barack Obama graduated from Harvard Law School in 1991. He then returned to Chicago, where that same year, he accepted a two-year teaching position as Visiting Law and Government Fellow at the University of Chicago Law School.

One can only assume, now that Garth Brooks’ true feelings for Mr. Obama have been revealed, that maybe the fateful crossing of their paths happened when Garth Brooks was touring around the country giving concerts and promoting his albums to sell out crowds. Who would’ve known?! The name Barack Obama was not known to many people at all, outside of his circle of questionable friends.

So, in light of this recent interview, the lyrics of the song “Shameless” most definitely shed new light to the situation.

“Well I’m shameless when it comes to loving you”
Garth Brooks most certainly showed no shame at all in his love and support of President Obama. While many of those who previously supported him in his campaign have recently come out to say they no longer support him, Garth Brooks says he “loves him to death!” I certainly do not hear any shame in his words or voice with that statement!
[adToAppearHere] “And I’m standing here for all the world to see”
Garth Brooks most certainly stood for all the world to see his undying love for the President that many have referred to as “the worst President in the history of this nation”.  It most certainly makes you wonder about the judgment of a man who “fully supports” a President who has made countless poor decisions- or, should I say indecisions in his still ongoing presidency.

“And I’m changing, swore I’d never compromise”
Garth Brooks… or is it Chris Gaines... certainly knows a lot about changing!  He’s retiring. He’s not retiring. He is no longer Garth Brooks. He’s Chris Gaines. Oh, wait! No! He is Garth Brooks! But, now Garth Brooks is retiring. Again. Oh, but wait! Now Garth Brooks is coming out of retirement yet again and now taking his show to Vegas!

“I’ve never had so much to lose
Oh, I’m shameless.

Well, Mr. Brooks, you do have a lot of fans to lose! I can assure you that most country music fans are hard-working, tax-paying citizens of a country they love! They are watching a man who calls himself the leader of the free world do nothing but work to put this nation into bondage and slavery! And you “fully support him”? You “love him to death”? You may be shameless, but I am most assuredly ashamed of you! You had an opportunity to be the voice of your fans and let the President know that he is destroying the working men and women of this nation! Unemployment is unsightly! He places a moratorium on our off-shore drilling, thereby taking away even more jobs; yet, he goes to Brazil and does everything he can to boost their off-shore drilling! Yes, Mr. Brooks, I am deeply ashamed of you, and for you!

“You know it should be easy for a man who’s strong
To say he’s sorry or admit when he’s wrong

Mr. Brooks, will you admit that you are wrong in this? I highly doubt it! How unfortunate! Maybe your next career should be politics! You will fit right in with the elitism, hypocrisy and butt-kissing! Because it will surprise me if you are able to sell enough tickets in Vegas to say you even have a career after your shameful statements!

“Oh, I’m shameless, shameless as a man can be
You make a total fool of me
I just wanted to you to know.”

No… Mr. Obama did not make a fool of you, Mr. Brooks. YOU did that all by yourself! I hope it was worth just wanting to let him know so all the world could see!

“Shameless”
Yes, Mr. Garth Brooks… you are indeed shameless! To quote another song that was not written by you, but one that you ended many of your concerts with…..

“A long, long time ago…
I can still remember
How that music used to make me smile.”

I will try to smile when I remember the Garth Brooks I knew and loved once before… a long, long time ago. Your music did most certainly make me smile! Now, it will only make me sad to wonder if you ever believed in the people who supported you and your music career- the hard-working American people! Because if you truly believed in us you would know for certain that we do not fully support the decisions of Barack Obama! He is destroying this nation and everything she stands for! Your “words of undying love and encouragement” only spur him on more! Thanks for nothing!

“But something touched me deep inside
The day the music died.
So bye-bye,
Ms. American Pie…”
Yes, something has touched me deep inside- deep down inside my heart that aches for this nation! She is becoming a mere shadow of what I grew up knowing and loving! When I heard you “stand for all the world to see” how much you supported the man who has called the God-fearing citizens of this country his enemies I am ashamed to say I ever supported you!

Bye, bye, Ms. American Pie! This country as we have known is disappearing! And bye, bye, Garth Brooks! I can no longer support you! You have sold me out, as well as the rest of my fellow citizens who are fighting so diligently for this country we love so dearly! Every day we are standing up and exposing the atrocities from our government- from both sides! You are doing nothing but selling us down the river! You have gained your fame and fortune on the backs of the hard working American citizens who bought your albums and bought very expensive concert tickets to see you perform! I wonder if you will still be shameless when this is all said and done!

  1. Ok. I am proud to say that I am a Garth Brooks fan and a supporter of Barrak Obama! He has tried working with the other side to get stuff done. It is the other side that has blocked the work. I did not like Bush but I supported him. That may be the case with Garth Brooks. This is still a great nation. None of our rights have been taken away from us. Those rights can not be taken away from us. Do I believe in idea that our president puts out no. Most yes. But not all! So to bring this to an end why critsise Garth Brooks for supporting our leader. You may not have voted for or even like him but he does deserve respect because of the office for which he holds!

  2. the devil is lurking around every corner waiting to grab hold of a good man.Garth is just another example of this. read your bible.

  3. most good man are corrupted by evil. read your Bible

  4. You never were a fan if you didn’t know he was more liberal than anything. Have you actually listened to to “We Shall be Free”? Clearly he supports the democratic platforms of racial and social equality, gay marriage even, and the putting of human interests in front of corporate greed and not allowing money to buy elections. Clearly not a Republican.

  5. Garth has not lost me as a fan.I am still as mug of a fan of him as I was in 1988.It is his decision.I do not knock him for supporting Barrack Obama,yet Barrack Obama should take action instead of just creating speeches.I like Barrack Obama,yet he repeats most of 2008 speech each year.People want progress In this country not regress in this country.

  6. I actually will always be a fan of Garth Brooks.George Bush,I never really liked him or his policies.I liked Bill Clinton more,yet then again I am not a big fan of politics.Like it or not I do not knock on what Garth Brooks said because I respect the guy and he is right,yet I am not going for no one in 2012 Republican or Democrat.Your opinions about Garth Brooks do not change how much I respect Garth Brooks.No human will.Grow up.

  7. its a billy joel song anyway. blame billy 🙂

  8. You madam, are are an idiot! And a racist. Republicans have completely eroded the middle class for the wealthiest two percent. Think for yourself, don’t let Rush tell you how to think.

    • Hmmmm… a racist huh? Seeing as how my ULTIMATE CHOICE for 2012 President is Allen West… a black man- think again. I look at the CONTENT OF THE CHARACTER, NOT THE COLOR OF THE SKIN!

      • Think for yourself. Do not let Rush think for you. Yes, you are a racist. You think because you are voting for Mr. West you are not a racist! Laughable if you were not so sick.

        • “Think for yourself, don’t let Rush think for you.”

          “Think for yourself, don’t let Rush tell you how to think.”

          Just fyi, I can’t stand Rush. Secondly… if that’s your only argument to support that I am a racist… you need to find a new argument.

          • He can’t Allenah. It’s all part of that mental disease known as liberalism. They eject emotional-driven comment as a defense mechanism when they have no intellectual comeback. Only in that kind of abnormal rationale can one who seeks to defame a black conservative simply for his beliefs not be held to account as a racist!

            Can you dig this:
            “You madam, are are an idiot! And a racist. Republicans have completely eroded the middle class for the wealthiest two percent.” He calls you an “idiot” simple for opposing him and his beliefs, which …the last time I checked it’s STILL your free right. [sarcasm]How can you be such an idiot Allenah?[/sarcasm]. You are also a “racist”. but he hasn’t justified that claim yet. Good luck Tommie-boy. And the his crowning glory is when he stridently proclaims in bellicose tonations that…”Republicans have completely eroded the middle class for the wealthiest two percent.” He likely conjured that up, because he observed Republicans opposing the additional taxing of the wealthiest as the progressive liberal agenda of ‘divide and conquer” and “class envy” advanced by his Geat Leader and he seeks to make the other 98% feel some sort of “liberal” sense of guilt. Needless to say we are not liberals, so are not illogically burderned down with guilt complexes.

            It does beg the question though…How much deficit spending is too much Tommie-boy? And what do you say to the very real statistic that proves that with YOUR current “deficit’ spending rate and confiscating ALL the assets of the uber-rich we still wouldn’t be able to get out of the hole that you *ssholes dug for this Once Great Nation in proliferating all manner of social engineering programs that leave the poorest among us in the same state they were 50 years ago. HELPLESS! except for one slight modification. YOU made them HELPLESS and PARASITES TOO!

            II’ve got my eye on you Tomie-boy.

          • There you go again. You let Rush think for you again. You really should try to think independently before you become completely robotic, or rushbotic.

      • Allen West is a war criminal.

  9. Hi. This is nothing more than senseless ramblings. If you are conservative and believe in the Bible it says to obey your leaders and respect them. Vote how you want but when the boss is the boss show respect and support, eveyonebody benifits this way. What good would it do to throw around criticism when our ELECTED leaders are struggling enough. And, part of freedom, especially by celeberties is to say how they feel, after all they are people as well. Keep doing what you’re doing Garth.

    • 1 Kings 16-17, Matthew 16, 2 Corinthians 2, Proverbs 30, Psalm 5

      Refusing to follow ungodly leadership

      “I lifted you up from the dust and appointed you ruler over my people Israel, but you followed the ways of Jeroboam and caused my people Israel to sin and to arouse my anger by their sins . . .”

      “When Zimri saw that the city was taken, he went into the citadel of the royal palace and set the palace on fire around him. So he died, because of the sins he had committed, doing evil in the eyes of the LORD and following the ways of Jeroboam and committing the same sin Jeroboam had caused Israel to commit. . .”

      “But Omri did evil in the eyes of the LORD and sinned more than all those before him. He followed completely the ways of Jeroboam son of Nebat, committing the same sin Jeroboam had caused Israel to commit, so that they aroused the anger of the LORD, the God of Israel, by their worthless idols. . .”

      “Ahab son of Omri did more evil in the eyes of the LORD than any of those before him. He not only considered it trivial to commit the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, but he also married Jezebel daughter of Ethbaal king of the Sidonians, and began to serve Baal and worship him. He set up an altar for Baal in the temple of Baal that he built in Samaria. Ahab also made an Asherah pole and did more to arouse the anger of the LORD, the God of Israel, than did all the kings of Israel before him. . .”

      -1 Kings 16:2, 18-19, 25-26, 30-33

    • “We recognize no Sovereign but God and no King but Jesus!” Paul Revere

      “The people have the right under God to kill a tyrannt as one would kill a mad dog or a murderer.” -John Adams
      “It is the peoples right and responsibility to despose of leaders who work against the liberties of the people. Liberties and rights are usurped by unGodly leaders. Godly men must in be in eternal rebellion against such..” James Madison

      “If Kings and Queens rule by divine right, then let them rule in heaven, for they will not rule me!” Thomas Jefferson

      “Any ruler or system that rules without the mandate of the people is an affront and must be disposed of, by any means. Rebellion against tyrannts is the divine mandate.”-Thomas Jefferson

    • Also read:
      Daniel 6, which is a GREAT example of when not to follow an ungodly leader.

      Also, in
      Acts 5:27 -29 the apostles refused to follow the local laws which prohibited preaching the Gospel of Christ.

      When a leader usurps the authority of God by placing ungodly laws on the people we are not to follow them. Period. We will answer to God, ultimately.

    • How about that? The Bible now says…”to obey your leaders and respect them”. Could have fooled me! Yo Josh…How about old Adolph the Nazi paperhanger and Joey Stalin and Mao and all the rest of the world’s tyrannical “leaders”? Get your head out of Garth’s rectal orifice and read the Good Book sometime.

  10. If you were ever a fan, it would not be news to you that Garth Brooks is not conservative. Ever heard the song “We Shall Be Free”? I included the lyrics that Garth co-wrote in 1992 below for your reference since you’ve obviously never listened. There are many “hard working American people” who support Garth Brooks and our President, you do not speak for everyone and I doubt you even speak for a majority of country music fans. Obviously YOU are the shameless one.

    “We Shall be Free”
    When I close my eyes I see
    The way this world shall be
    When we all walk hand in hand

    When the last child cries for a crust of bread
    When the last man dies for just words that he said
    When there’s shelter over the poorest head
    We shall be free

    When the last thing we notice is the color of skin
    And the first thing we look for is the beauty within
    When the skies and the oceans are clean again
    Then we shall be free

    When we’re free to love anyone we choose
    When this world’s big enough for all different views
    When we all can worship from our own kind of pew
    Then we shall be free

    And when money talks for the very last time
    And nobody walks a step behind
    When there’s only one race and that’s mankind
    Then we shall be free

    We shall be free
    We shall be free
    Stand straight, walk proud, have a little faith, hold out
    We shall be free

    • You are right- I AM obviously shameless! I have no problem AT ALL saying that I UNEQUIVOCALLY DISAGREE with President Obama’s agenda and ANY AND ALL who agree with him! HOWEVER, where you ARE wrong is that I claim to speak for all “hard working Americans”, or even all country music fans. I am speaking for myself and myself only! And it is also quite obvious that you missed the entire irony of my post.

      It is obvious by your comment that you believe the GOVERNMENT should be the institution to
      feed “the last child” who “cries for a crust of bread”
      and
      put “shelter over the poorest head”

      I, as a Conservative leaning Libertarian believe it is the INDIVIDUAL who should help those in need- ie, the churches and other social groups and individuals giving out of the goodness of their hearts to help others not demanding and requiring that everyone give what the GOVERNEMENT REQUIRES so the government can dole out what THEY deem necessary.

      I do not believe it is right for a man to die “just for the words he said”. I am a FIRM BELIEVER and supporter of the 1st Amendment- which is Free Speech for ALL! I COMPLETELY disagree with the Westborro “Baptist Church” ; however, they too have the right to free speech. While I disagree with them COMPLETELY, I am not their judge. God will judge their hearts one day. I pity them when they have to stand before Him.

      Very interesting, the next lyric you enclosed I will address.
      “When the last thing we notice is the color of skin”
      Very, very interesting indeed! All you liberals want to do is scream that we who disagree with Obama are racist. I do not see a “black man”. I see a man bent on collapsing this great nation. I don’t care if he was pink, purple, blue, green, brown, white or black. He is destroying this nation with his agenda! On the point of the color of skin, want to know who my IDEAL candidates would be for the upcoming 2012 election? Allen West and Herman Cain- BOTH are BLACK MEN!

      I find it very interesting that those who call Conservatives- or anyone who disagrees with Obama- racist. Did any of you NOT hear the WORDS to Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech?
      I quote:
      “I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

      Notice- Martin Luther King, Jr. said he dreamt of a day where people would NOT be judged by the COLOR of their SKIN, but by the CONTENT OF THEIR CHARACTER! Those of you who spout “racist” to those of wus who disagree with him OBVIOUSLY missed his point! Don’t look at the fact that he is “the first black president of The United States”. This man could have accomplished SO MUCH for this nation to unite us! BEING the FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT could have defined him as the GREATEST President to EVER LEAD this nation! He COULD have been a UNITER! Instead, he has done NOTHING but FURTHER DIVIDE us!

      Obama has done NOTHING but destroy the freedoms you quote of- yes, indeed, one day, we SHALL be free! However, it will NEVER be under the rule of “Dictator Obama”!

  11. So…the last bastion of contemporary patriotic music has ended? I won’t purchase tickets or recordings for an “artist” that backs Obama! To hell with brooks, to hell with Keith!

  12. Well said. Garth Brooks is an old fool. Fiddling while Rome burns.
