Who Decided Paul McCartney Knows Anything?

Paul McCartney has a lot to say about American issues lately.

He started by mocking a former U.S. president during a visit to the White House to accept an award, something I find offensive as an American.

Now, he's popping up in the news with strident support for President Obama, complete with the standard American liberal rhetoric.

(Standard liberal rhetoric: Talk about unrealistic, impossible liberal goals, then blame conservatives for reality not being that way.)

That he's ultra-liberal isn't really the problem.

What I don't understand is why his political and social opinions merit worldwide broadcast.

To me, he's a singer, so if it's not a song coming out of his mouth than I have no interest in it.

Why should I? Aside from really good songs and music, who is Paul McCartney? He's just a super-rich, old, white liberal. He's got really socially progressive views, and wants to influence American politics in that direction.

And he's not a U.S. citizen.

So to come to America, to the White House, and insult not only a former president, but the half of America that voted for that president -- twice -- is just poor behavior.Classless.

And Obama is classless for not chastising McCartney. It's called pride in your country.
