Hank Williams Jr., the singer whose various videos for the hit song "All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Monday Night" has served as the intro to "Monday Night Football" for 23 seasons, compared President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler during a Monday morning appearance on "Fox and Friends." The statement led to ESPN pulling his popular intro segment, best known to fans for its "Are you ready for some football?" ending, for Monday night's game between the Indianapolis Colts and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
During a discussion on the 2012 presidential race, Williams began discussing Obama's golf outing with Speaker of the House John Boehner. He said it was a political mistake, on par with "Hitler playing golf with [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu."

I think Hank Williams is wrong. At least Hitler was competent in handling the economy. I think the better comparison is to Lenin.
I might have to go out and buy a Hank Williams album.
Now that sounds like a plan.
Hank shouldn’t be working for those light in the loafers fairies at ESPN anyway. He’s better off.
Actually he never compared Obama to Hitler. What he said was Boehner and Obama Golfing was like Hitler and Netanyahu golfing. In other words, you could not find two more diametrically opposed people to play golf. He was no more likening Obama to Hitler than he was calling Boehner Netanyahu, ( which wouldnt even make sense as Boehner on his best day couldn’t even polish Bibi’s shoes.)
Stupid Gretchen Carlson and Stupid Stupid ESPN. Oh well two less things that I don’t watch that I will now avoid even more.
Obama is more like Mussolini, with strange twists of Lenin and Marx.
But regardless, it’s now the National Fondling League. I care about them no longer.
whoops I meant to say “supposedly” diametrically opposed.
Good one :-D
Hank, bless his heart, as well as hi dad’s and son’s, the Third, oughta get his hitlers straight - it’s George W. Bush who’s Hitler. Sheesh, you’d think everyone knows by know.
At least Mussolini made the trains run on time. Under Obama, the TSA molests 95 year old grandmothers wearing Depends while letting Arabs go through without body searches.
Jr. is the topic here.
I wish I had come up with that one, but I’m just stealing and spreading the word!
Comparing BUSH To Hitler, No Problem! Good Job!
Comparing Obama to hitler, lose your job.
Amazing, isn’t it?
“I heard about Bush being hitler for years.”
We’re talking a different complexion, here. Anyone surprised?
Could sports be more racist? It’s sickening. It was Gretchen or someone who made something out of that question. I knew the minute she emphasized it that he was out.
He went on the show to publicize some newly discovered music by his father that’s out now on TV but they had to delve into politics.
I think this is kinda sad.
