American country music treasure Hank Williams, Jr. apparently overstepped the boundaries we as a nation have set for being politically correct today. While appearing on a Fox News program this morning Williams made a comment that has gotten him pulled from ESPN’s Monday Night Football opening tonight.

Williams said he thought the so-called golf summit between Barack Obama and John Boehner, which occurred last summer, was “one of the biggest political mistakes ever”.

He went on to say, “It would be like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli leader) Benjamin Netanyahu.”

Afterwards, when asked to explain his comment, Williams said Barack Obama and Joe Biden are the “enemy”. He explained that it seemed ludicrous to him that they would play golf together. He claimed Obama and Boehner “are polar opposites and it made no sense. They don’t see eye-to-eye and never will.”

That is a very matter-of-fact observation, in my opinion, but it could have been worded with far more taste. Perhaps a comparison, more sensitive such as “It would be like Nancy Pelosi playing Bridge with Sarah Palin”. No insults on either side of that comparison. Just two individuals I think we can all agree have no desire to sit across from one another at a table.

Here are a few stats and polls from Rasmussen Reports:
  • Barack Obama’s presidential index rating shows that 20% of American voters strongly approve of his performance while 42% strongly disapprove, giving Obama a presidential index rating of –22.Link
  • Overall, 44% of voters at least somewhat approve of Obama’s performance while 54% at least somewhat disapprove.
885.8 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day35.
