Hank Williams Jr.

My Obama Comments Were 'DUMB'

Hank Williams Jr.
is kinda, sorta, quasi backing off his horrible Obama-to-Hitler comparison -- calling the statements he made on Fox News "dumb" -- and apologizing for offending people.

Williams released a NEW statement on the matter -- saying, "The thought of the leaders of both parties jukin [sic] and high fiven [sic] on a golf course, while so many families are struggling to get by simply made me boil over and make a dumb statement."

He adds, "I am very sorry if it offended anyone. I would like to thank all my supporters. This was not written by some publicist.”

Hank:

You made an unfortunate analogy with regard to an event (Obama/Boehner golf outing) not a person (Obama) on a slow news day. They need to get over it.

Hank Williams Jr was wrong to insult the German People and Adolf Hitler. Regardless of how you feel about Hitler he was able to pull Germany out of a DEPRESSION and cool within a hair's breath of defeating the USSR, if not for the intervention of the USA. Obama is such an incompetient bottom wipe. I think it is time to have Mr. Obama go to Dallas and take a ride through Dealey Plaza right by the Book Dispository, I wonder is Oswald still there?????

I was a fan until I heard your comments about our ELECTED president. It's okay though, "country bumpkin". Your apology needs to be directed specifically to President Obama. That will make your sorrow more believeable.

JR appeared to be somewhat impaired during his interview on F&F. He claims they (FOX News) distored his words but in this case Hank Jr screwed up and ends up with a 'trip to the woodshed'. I'm sure his Daddy would not approved of his comments or condition.

why should hank williams jr appologize for telling the truth. i have heard lots of people remark that obama is just like hitler n i was the first person i heard say it. after watching hitlers actions on the learning channel, obama was the first thought (he is pattering himself adter hitler) that is an honest thought.

the truth of the matter obama and all his congress cronies needs 2 b put on notice for all their incompitance, and their retirement should be changed 2 the same retirement as us so they would have 2 live on entilement also and also live on our insurance programs and get their pay scales down 2 earth in respect 2 our pay scale then things would look up. p.s. also no more pork barrels for work they are already getting over paid 4
also no more passing laws they all should be ratified by 2/3 of the voters in all america

He is not worried about the working class people of the USA....he is worried mor I say about his own life, wealth, and family.

Look tat what he did to his half sister, for years he tried to keep her away from her legal share of Hank sr estate...don't think he is worried abput people outside his family .

He is probably even jealous of other singers that out sold him, in a short time.......made their own name, had nothing handed down.
