Hank Jr. Continues Anti-Obama Crusade
Rolling Stone interrogates Bocephus with predictably embarrassing results
How has your opinion of Obama changed from when he got elected until now?
I mean, it's a zero. If I was at my office and I could get to my Internet and list the things like where our economy is – you don't want to go there with me. I mean, the guy is the worst. Giveaway programs, hates America in the first place, forget about the flag. [Imitates Obama] "That's one of those big rich fat cats that makes $35,000 a year," you know what I mean? Oh yeah.
Why do you think he hates America?
We have borrowed ourselves into our poor grandchildren. Now my opinion has gone down. It was pretty low to start with. It's really gone down since then. I mean, there's a whole lot of us out here, we flip the tube off when that guy comes on. We're not listening and we ain't watching.
Yeah but, why do you think he hates America?
Oh, you know I don't know. I don't know about that but it's kind of obvious. I guess when you take a tour, a world tour, to apologize for America. He did that, you know?
Which tour was that?
You know, "We're sorry." Going on a world tour saying, "We're going to be be even with everyone else, we only have 6 percent of the population." Yeah. I wouldn't be going to the duck blinds with any of those guys. It was some of the greatest inspiration I ever had that because that song of mine, "We Don't Apologize for America," there's a guy named Marcus Luttrell that was a lone survivor of the Navy Seals, and he said, "I want to thank you for writing that because every military person in this country is going to buy that song." That's the ones that I care about. Barack and his? I could care less. I'm writing for the ones that mean something to me. Oh, we're pulling in here. Adios, cousin!
Sometimes, with that down home lazy sounding language, it seems hard to find the point of some statements. It is easy though, to tell that there is a proud American behind those words.
That is all that anyone has to remember and there is nothing embarassing about that.
