Andy Griffith, I will no longer watch reruns of your old, wonderful TV show. Something happened to you, I guess, and you feel the public just has to be on board with the worst piece of legislation ever passed by our Congress. To see you using your influence to sell lies to America disgusts me. To know that the Obama administration used you like an old fool to peddle their misinformation about a destructive bill for political opportunism makes me sick to my stomach.
But then, I expect the idiocy from this administration, but what I don't expect is idiots like Andy Griffith duping folks into buying outright lies. I can't stand it. It's just plain wrong.
We are currently in a lame-duck session of Congress. Nothing much usually happens during these sessions but this year the Democrats are especially nervous so they are trying to do more in 3 weeks than they have done the past two years. Go home! Go play with the ducks. Go anywhere do anything but do not pass ANY piece of legislation during the lame-duck session unless it is for funding the government by leaving the tax rates as they have been for the past 7 years.
Lameness from Congress is expected. Lamesness from an old time hero is, well, just lame.
