"Are you ready for some golf?" - foursome w/ Hitler & Netanyahu
President Obama plays golf with Speaker of the House Boehner
When Hank Williams, Jr. was dropped from ESPN from opening Monday Night Football by yelling the lead-in to the game, "are you ready for some football?" he called attention to the golf games between President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner.
Appearing on Fox News' Fox & Friends, Williams said this summer's golf summit between Obama and Boehner was "one of the biggest political mistakes ever."
Then Williams went on to make one of the biggest personal mistakes in his career by saying, "It would be like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli leader) Benjamin Netanyhu."
Asked to explain, Williams elaborated by saying Obama and Vice President Joe Biden "are the enemy."
Williams later issued a statement saying that his comment about Obama and Boehner playing golf this summer was "simply trying to show how stupid it seemed to me -- how ludicrous that pairing was." Williams says Boehner and Obama "are polar opposites and it made no sense. They don't see eye-to-eye and never will."
Williams said he is thinking about running as a Republican in 2012 for the U.S. Senate seat from Tennessee.
Now Whoopie Goldberg has come to his defense, which is like Cynthia McKinney sticking by Gadhafi. As suggested, maybe Hank should run for president with Whoopie on the ticket as Veep?
Meanwhile, he's written a song dedicated to FOX News and ESPN, which should be released this week.
Probably, the best thing Hank Williams, Jr. could do for himself at this point is take up golf and go play a round with Willie.
Hank Williams Jr. wrote a new song about Fox News and ESPN
By Chris Chase
Are you ready for some vengeance, vapid lyricism and strained rhyming patterns?
Hank Williams Jr. is releasing a new song entitled "I'll Keep My ...," in which he calls out ESPN and Fox News after his remarks about President Barack Obama and Adolf Hitler on "Fox and Friends" led to his dismissal from the "Monday Night Football" theme song after 23 years.
The country music singer wrote the song on Friday and is scheduled to release it late Monday or early Tuesday. In its third verse, he takes issue with how Fox took his words out of context: "So Fox 'n Friends wanna put me down/Ask for my opinion/Twist it all around."
If it didn't mean having to listen to Hank Williams Jr. speak about anything other than music or Alabama football, I'd be interested to hear how he thinks Fox twisted his opinion. After all, there are only so many ways to take the quote: "It'd be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu."
Williams calls the U.S. the "United Socialist States of America" earlier in the song. He finishes the third verse with a subtlety you'd expect from the man who wrote "Why Can't We All Just Get a Long Neck?" The song ends with the suggestive jab, "Well two can play that gotcha game you'll see."
During an appearance on "The View" last week, Williams found a measure of support from Whoopi Goldberg. This led to him suggesting a possible Whoopi/Hank presidential ticket in the future. Let's pray that this theoretical campaign would never take them to the golf course. That would be like ... never mind.
Before this happened,

I think one of the problems with Boehner playing — and I understand the lure. Boehner loves to play golf. I myself have played golf with Boehner. Boehner is a six handicap, six or seven. He’s a good golfer. I’m sure he would never admit this, but I’m sure that Boehner in part relished the opportunity to go out there and just shellac Obama on the golf course. But aside from that: The President calls you and says, “Let’s go play golf,” and you’re the Speaker of the House, it’s tough to say no because then the media is gonna rake you over the coals.
“Refusing to be civil! Refusing to get together with the president and solve the nation’s problems,” as though that’s gonna happen on the golf course. But I think it’s just a matter of respect, too. The President calls you to go play golf, you do it. Two problems: One is now you can’t criticize Obama for playing golf, ’cause Boehner did it, too. So if we start making jokes — this 13 weekends in a row he’s played golf! — the retort is, “Well, so did Boehner.” But the thing to me is, we’ve got people losing their jobs left and right. People’s homes are underwater. We have dire economic circumstances. We have wars in four different places around the globe.
If these guys are going to get together, do it in a place and under the auspices of actually working on these problems, rather than photo-ops playing golf, trying to show that everybody can get along — which only helps Obama. Showing that everybody can get along, that’s another premise they put forth that we somehow think we have to respond to, that people “not getting along” is our fault and our problem because of the way we are. This is the guy, Obama, who refused to meet with Boehner or any other Republican leader for the first year, maybe even longer. If you’re gonna get together, get together and read the Riot Act to this guy over what his policies are doing to the country. Now, maybe that happened on the golf course; I don’t know.
Well, I know. The golf course is really not the place for that would happen, but you don’t know. I have no idea. What I… (interruption) It wouldn’t happen. Obama is not gonna invite me to play golf. It’s already been floated. Outside my auspices, against my wishes the second time. Somebody already tried to make it happen. (interruption) Yeah, and it’s that… (sigh) Gosh. (interruption) No. I’m not concerned about that, but if I… (interruption) No. No. No further. I’m not gonna lock my… (interruption) No. I don’t know what I would… (interruption) I’m not gonna respond to a hypothetical with another hypothetical answer. Snerdley’s badgering me here on the IFB. I know what you want. You want me to go say, “Go pound sand, Mr. Obama! I wouldn’t dare waste my time.”
That’s what you want. (chuckling) Everybody wants me to go do their dirty work
