Paul "gutless" McCartney bashes Bush

Boehner to Bashing Beatle: Apologize! by Connie Hair

06/04/2010 Sir Paul McCartney's cheap shot aimed at former President George W. Bush at a White House event on Wednesday has prompted House Minority Leader John Boehner to demand an apology from the Beatle.


McCartney literally gushed over President Obama throughout his East Room concert. “Getting this prize would just be good enough, but getting it from this president…” McCartney said letting his praise trail off as if there were vast volumes left unsaid.


The prize McCartney was given is the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, a lifetime achievement award bestowed by the Library of Congress.


McCartney ended the evening taking a baseless cheap shot at former President George W. Bush.


“After the last eight years, it’s great to have a President who knows what a library is,” McCartney quipped.


When did decorum go out of style?


“Like millions of other Americans, I have always had a good impression of Paul McCartney and thought of him as a classy guy, but I was surprised and disappointed by the lack of grace and respect he displayed at the White House,” Boehner told HUMAN EVENTS. “I hope he'll apologize to the American people for his conduct which demeaned him, the White House and President Obama.”


McCartney is the third recipient of the Gershwin Prize. Hailing from England and having earned no university degrees of his own, the Beatle may not know W. was the first American president to earn a master’s degree in business administration. (The fact the MBA is from Harvard really irks the left.) Not to mention Bush is married to a librarian.

Can we deport him? Im sick of all these old hippes still whining about "W". Hell they got their man in the white house now and he is making one mistake after another and is looking like the biggest liar in chief we have ever seen.

It's pretty common for musicians and artists te affect the liberal line.

Paul's a brilliant songwriter IMO.

Moreso than John who I idolized.

I love the atristic efforts and talent of lots of people whose politics annoy me.


Keep in mind that Lennon"imagine no possessions" left England to escape the taxes.

Paul did the same. His mansion is in Scotland.


I'm disappointed but not particularly surprised.


Personally I wish W would have had a better handle on the language but that's irrelevant to politics.

I'm not enthralled by Obamas honking prompter reading. Some are.

I should write him and tell him as a teenager, I got bored with their Rubber Soul album one day,


and started playing their records at 78 RPM so they sounded like the 3 Chipmunks.


That FIX him, alright. GGG
