Sheriff Andy thinks Obamacare is just swell
Please tell me it ain’t so. The Sheriff of Mayberry, the down home Southern boy has become the spokesperson for Obamacare. But really, it should not surpirse, Griffith campaigned for the boy President in ’08.
Maybe its because he has so much dough, he won’t have to worry about being denied treatment in his ancient age, while I and most of you will … because it costs too much. Maybe its because he is so enamored with the young President that he is convinced it will be good for all of us. Maybe, unlike my sister, he hasn’t read the bill that ensures coverage but does not guarantee care. In fact Medicare has the highest coverage denial rate (more great research from Steve and the SOS) among all Health Care providers. But my guess he doesn’t tell you that. Heh?
Two videos for your view. First the real commercial, which cost you taxpayers $700,000 … enough to pay for Andy’s care I am so sure.
Next is just a spectacular parody from “Nation of Lies.”
Finally … remember this one from Andy during the election? He and Ron Howard posted a video campaigning for Obama … calling for an end to divisiveness? Strangely I looked on line and could no longer find the video. My guess is they took it down. Nothing like the courage of conviction.
I don’t care if he supports Obama. But please, don’t portray yourself as an ordinary geezer, like the rest of us who are or will be, and push a crummy plan that will cut $500 billion from Medicare, kill Advantage, cause rationing, and then tell us to buy into a new system that you I guess won’t have to join. But, that’s just me.
Wow! That video has been completely eradicated! Sounds like some severe buyer's remorse. What other reason could there be?
I wonder how fast Griffith's little spiel will disappear once the reality of Øbamacare is realized? Remember: he is just an actor, not a reincarnation of Will Rogers (who is likely spinning in his grave).
I might have found the missing video/s- they're worth watching; although, they start with a disturbing Belgian commercial (lasts ~10 sec). You see Ron Howard as Opie having a chat with Pah. And then he's turned into Richie and has a political chat with the intellectual luminary- Arthur Fonzarelli, as smart as he is Italian btw!: http://www.myvideo.be/watch/5341295 I hope someone can save this for posterity before is disappears forever- like Obama's mother's passport records!
Thanks for the link! I can now see why they tried to make it disappear. The old Opie came off as more of a Forrest Gump. I wonder what the Fonz is saying now?
Nothing cemented Howard's bona fides like getting his nose hairs trimmed on camera…
Ron Howard says: "… real change, the kind of change that will allow us to trust our government again"?
Oh please, Andy you just lost a whole lot of followers. You should have just stayed an old time actor and lived out your days as the great Mayberry sheriff.
Of course it did not surprise me, it has been long known that Ron Howard was a lib so why not Andy. Most actors and actresses are liberals but then do any of them really live in the real world?
Wait until the blue and red pills are handed out – or when they truck rolls up to their mansions and they are told them must share it with a hundred Mexicans since their homes are way too big for just one or two people. It is better this way comrade – share and share alike! Oh will those actors and actresses be looking to us to save their sorry little ……
So go ahead Andy – Ron, keep it up until the Obama alligator comes to eat you – and he will
I guess none of us will have to worry about ever getting THAT old, will we?
There's no fool like an old fool.
It's understandable this could happen to ol' Andy without the voice of reason of the late, great Don Knotts giving his sage advice.
We might just as well as have gone to Gomer and Goober!
I get the feeling that Mayberry RFD is a ghost town.
Just Peachy! He talked like he was a little dim witted when he was on the show way back when. So should we expect that he became a genious in his old age?
