Hank Williams Jr. to Obama: Pack your bags, take your teleprompter with you

Hank Williams Jr. to Obama: Pack your bags, take your teleprompter with you By Judy Kurtz - 07/09/12 06:56 PM ET

Getting dropped from ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” telecast doesn’t seem like it’s done much to tone down Hanks Williams Jr.

The controversial country crooner’s new album, “Old School, New Rules,” is out Tuesday, and judging by just a few lines from some of his new tunes, it sounds as if Williams is as feisty as ever.

The musician, 63, was axed from “Monday Night Football” — for which he sang the classic opening song — after making some head-turning remarks last year.

Appearing on Fox News Channel’s morning show, “Fox and Friends,” in October, Williams said of a golf game in which

President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) teamed up, “That’d be like Hitler playing golf with [Israeli Prime Minister

Benjamin] Netanyahu.”

Williams confirmed later in the interview that he was indeed comparing Obama to the late Nazi leader, telling anchor Gretchen Carlson, “I’m telling you like it is.”

A press release about his new album includes a track list and some lyrics from the record. In one ditty, Williams sings, “Barack, pack your bags, head to Chicago … take your teleprompter with you.”

He also sings, “Don’t tread on me … political correctness has run its course.”

Some song titles include: “We Don’t Apologize for America,” “Stock Market Blues,” “Takin’ Back the Country” and “Cow Turd Blues” (although we have no clue whether that last one’s political in nature or just has a silly-sounding name).

Go, Hank, go.

I hope to hasten the day when it’s the “politically correct” minions that worry about seeing the light of day.

I’ve had it with them.

They can shove their mealy-mouthed mamby-pamby opinions up their smelly Obamas.

My vocabulary is not sufficient to express my feelings. Those spineless suits at ESPN canned HW Jr. following what I’m sure was a call from the White House. HW Jr.’s MNF opening was truly an American icon.

Well...I sure hope he doesn't play on a Gibson guitar ....with all of that illegal hardwood ...

On August 24, federal agents entered the Tennessee factories of the Gibson Guitar Corporation and confiscated wood, hard drives, and guitars on the suspicion that Gibson had illegally imported Indian hardwood.

He'll be okay if he's playing a 2012. The "illegal" ebony (has Gibson been charged?) is out.

Now they're made with PC, enviro friendly Richlite® fingerboards.
