So I guess actor Andy Griffith did some Obamacare commercials. Thus, at this time of sturm and drung, Freepers are particularly callous about his death today despite their love of the small town idealism of the Andy Griffith show.
Biggirl forgot where she was, I guess:
Let’s not drag politics in this.Gaffer will never mourn for a Democrat!
Years ago, before I found out his Democrat proclivities, I’d have expressed condolences. I will not, however, now.brickdds expects Griffith was secretly like all the villains he played, not like the good guys!
He was so good he had us all fooled. We projected that kind heart of Andy Taylor onto Griffith. But a more true to life rendition was his character Lonesome Rhodes. And later in life he did a movie called “Gramps” where he played a sinister old man. Given how truly EVIL obamacare is, I imagine this character came naturally to him.
His denouement was the obama campaign and obamacare commercials. He willfully supported foisting this on the Americans who loved or trusted him. To do so indicates he was either senile or wicked.CatherineofAragon suddenly finds the Andy Griffith Show creepy.
It’s funny...everybody says the Sheriff Taylor character was so sweet and kindly. I guess that’s so. But I could never get past the look on Griffith’s face, and the expression in his eyes. He always looked shifty and downright mean to me. That affable smile looked sort of like a shark’s grin. He always creeped me out.To be fair, I could never see the show the same way after I saw "A Face in the Crowd."
clarkster manages to let his nostalgia overwhelm his partisanship:
How ironic that just the other day was basking in how wonderful my 11 year old son turned out to be and my thoughts turned to the AGS episode, “Opie the Birdman.” I know it’s just TV, but just that episode taught me and showed me what fatherhood is and can be.txrangerette also yearns for a time that never existed:
He might have been a liberal, but The AGS show certainly wasn’t. It was true family values, true American values, and it was a reflection of Andy Griffith’s values.
An all- American on the screen. A total mushhead leftist in real life. RIP Sheriff Andy. Where have you gone, Mayberry USA?el_texicano, though, lets the hate flow through him:
Well, I used to have a soft spot for “Sheriff Taylor”, but after the Obamacare debacle was passed with Andy Griffith leading the cheering for it, I saw a different person. Griffith was a total communist and hated this country. He was a bitter resentful person as Libs usually are. He was wasting air that someone else deserved. I won’t miss him in the least.mkjessup is reminded of voter fraud:
yup looks like he died before he could vote for obama again
Oh he'll be voting for 0bama again, no question.
