Classless Numbskulls Come in All Nationalities
I've been a Beatles fan since I was a little girl. I still love their music and wish I had been fortunate enough to see them in concert when they were still together. As an adult, I remember the first time I saw Paul McCartney live in concert when he had the group "Wings". I was so happy to finally see at least one of the Beatles in person and he singing many of my favorite Beatles hits. I have to admit, it's one of those nights I will never forget because the Beatles are still my favorite group. And I've seen Paul in concert since, still bringing back happy memories.
To see this video and hear Paul McCartney's nasty comments about President Bush, has made me sad. Now when I see Paul McCartney on TV or hear one of his songs, I am going to think about his smart-ass remarks.
Paul, I know you're a liberal and I know you adore President Obama. Actually, I really don't care. I still like the Beatles and the music you have written over the years. What I don't like is you coming to my country, being honored with an American award and then bashing one of our presidents in your thank you remarks. It wouldn't have mattered if your remarks were about a Democrat president or a Republican president...they were not called for no matter what. You can think and say whatever you like, but in a setting at the White House, snide comments about an American President by a foreigner is in very poor taste and an insult to the American people.
What made it even more disturbing was the laughter from the American audience. Not really surprising coming from the Obama Administration Bush Bashers. Classless numbskulls come in all nationalities it seems.
I don't think I'll waste my money on another Paul McCartney concert. My old Beatles records will have to do from now on.
