Rednecks Heart Obama

| Filed under: PolitikBarack Obama

ap080926019060w.jpg

This is a bit surprising.

We're sure most people figured that John McCain and especially Sarah Palin would have the "redneck" votes locked!

But, Barack Obama is getting some support from the Redneckers too!

Well, at least he has the vote of two rednecks.

Les Spencer and Tony Viessman are two self-proclaimed rednecks. They describe the term as "hardworking guys who like to hunt, fish, and maybe pop a beer or two."

Spencer adds, "I hunt squirrels, too. And I like eating turtles."

Eating turtles???? Poor little guys!

The two retirees from Rolla, MO, make up the entire, unaffiliated "Rednecks for Obama."

The two men have even traveled, using their own money, to all the debates and even the Democratic National Convention in the hopes of convincing others that "Obama is redneck-friendly."

Viessman adds, "This election is too important."

A retired highway patrol officer, Viessman, was even so impressed that Obama was the first presidential candidate to visit Rolla since Harry Truman, that he went out and bought a 7 by 3 foot sign to welcome him to town. Adding, "Cost me 25 bucks."

And when asked why some rednecks might not be voting for Obama, he said, "Guns. And that he's black. Sometimes change is hard for people. But I don't care if you're black or Oriental or green, if you can do the job. And he can do the job. He's pretty near the smartest guy who's ever run for president."

Spencer added, "We are just trying to tell people that you don't have to be afraid of Obama. He's not going to try to take away your guns, no matter what the NRA says."

And Viessman added, "My dad used to say, 'A poor man who votes for a Republican is a fool.' "

Let's hope everyone goes out and votes for the best candidate. Your vote will make a difference!

P.S. The best candidate is Barack Obama, duh!

  2. 2

    REAL rednecks do not wear GOLD WATCHES.

    What a posser.



  3. 3

    Barack Obama only looks like the best candidate to people who are incredibly naive or painfully uneducated. The man could promise to give a free flying purple dragon to every family in America and you lot would buy right into it. It's downright depressing watching how stupid people can be.

    'A poor man who votes for a Republican is a fool'

    Ain't that the truth, honey. My aunt is poorer than dirt and just as smart and she still votes Republican. But then, she is dumber than dirt so there ya go.



  16. 16

    Within the last month, world issues are on the rise and the next President needs to be able to handle them.
    1. Russia, Iran, and Qatar formed an alliance to take control of the world's natural gas.
    2. Putin sent men into Alaska to scout for oil and gas.
    3. Putin is now buddies with Hugo Chavez and wants control of world oil.
    4. Iran is thinking about forming a preemptive attack on Isreal to protect its (Iran) nation's nuclear weapons.

    My theory is since Russia and Iran have formed an alliance, Iran now feels secure in attacking Isreal since they know Russia will back them.



  20. 20

    OHH NO! My family is from Rolla, I am a member of the NRA too…he will not be getting this members vote THATS FOR SURE



  21. 21

    Re: ChicagoGay – factcheck.org says its non affliated but if you actually check the source its backed by republicans. So why dont you try and find some no-affliation site worth everyone's time instead of ranting republican babble. Im not saying obama is best but at least check your facts.



  22. 22

  28. 28

    I am sitting in Missouri and can tell you that some of the most rednecked people I know are coming out strong for Obama. There are many senior citizens and boomers here who are pure country and LOVE Obama for his strong values.
    A good man is a good man. Period. I'm buying the "rednecks for Obama" tee.



  29. 29

    Wow!
    "Oriental"–>He IS DEFINITELY AN OLD SCHOOL REDNECK! lol.

    Those guys rock!! Yaaaay for rational thinking over bias, ignorance and prejudice.

    i have completely fuckin' stopped caring about this election. there's one thing my father told me that i'll never forget. don't discuss religion or politics with anyone. you'll never win.

    stop trying to sway your readers' votes, perez. they will vote for whoever they see fit. stop feeding this obama/biden bullshit to everyone. not everyone thinks like you. all this bullshit and jamming your views down people's throats is just the kinda thing that causes voter apathy. we're all sick of it.

  38. 38

    Vote for whomever you want. But remember that politicians will say what they know you want to hear.



  39. 39

    Re: Melissa is always right – Now now, don't be upset just because some rednecks have a brain and can think for themselves. The rest of you should try that sometime. ;)

    Calm down. He's wearing dark glasses, I bet he's blind and doesn't even know what he's wearing :)



  41. 41

    The guy said "He's pretty near the smartest guy who's ever run for president." Actually, his SPEECH WRITERS are the smart ones. THEY are the ones who should be running for President. Obama should be running for "Best Teleprompter Reader".



  42. 42

    IF YOU CARE ABOUT THE FUTURE OF THIS WORLD YOU MUST VOTE OBAMA! OBAMA = CHANGE. THE ONLY MEDICINE WE NEED!



  43. 43

    Amen.

    OBAMA/BIDEN '08!

  44. Kelsy says – reply to this


    44

    Oh WTF ever. Obama is wrong on so many levels. You only like him b/c he supports same sex marriage. Which is pretty pathetic. I could care less who gets married, but my question is in a time when most people are running from marriage, why do the Gay's want to get married? And do not use the age old excuse: b/c of property, holdings etc. Have a will made. Obama will put this country in far deeper hell than it already is. Just look at this track record of who he ASSOCIATES with. McCain may not be the best choice, but he is the better choice. Do YOUR own research on Mr. Barry.. yes, that is what Obama used to want to be called.



  45. 45

    What I think is amazingly funny is that most of the Obama supporters on this website have spent the last several months bashing every "redneck" out there, and suddenly, rednecks are your buddies and grandpas? "Hypocrites" is right…



  46. 46

    Well my dad always said "Poor people have been voting for Democrats for 40 years. Guess what, they are still poor"



  47. 47

    Re: LordKain – you're so fucking funny douche bag. i'm loling my way all to the bathroom to change my pants, your wit and humor just made me piss myself. fucktard.

    Barack Obama will be our President sooon!!

    It can come soon enough.

    I'm proud of the America he's bringing together….you know…the REAL "real America".

    Just kidding, McCain voters, we're not haters, we love you too.



  49. 49

    cool. =)

    Re: McCainIsMyHero – Um…he is his own primary speech writer.

    Try reading stuff in order to find out facts. You may find it fun!!



  51. 51

    I love seeing some fellow Missourians who are smart enough to realize that Obama is not going to take away all the rednecks' guns!

    Obama/Biden 2008!



  52. 52

    These are wise men no doubt about it.



  53. 53

    As someone already said, real red-necks don't wear gold watches and their white shirts/hats are never that white.

    Re: BlancheD – Hehehehe!



  55. 55

    Re: katekatemeow – As far as Republican babble…Hmmm All I hear is Obama babble….Look into Obamas "close advisor" Reverand Meeks he advises Obama on everything and he is a radical who hates Gays! Im not saying McCain/Palin are great but they are getting my vote after Voting only Democrat for the last 2 other elections. GO McCain/Palin 08!!!!!!



  56. 56

    Uhm, he is not a redneck. He is some guy from MO that wants his 15 minutes. The best candidate? McCain. Osama needs to go back to the IL Senate for a few years and get some experience under his belt before trying to run with the big dogs.



  57. 57

    Re: McCainIsMyHero – exactly…ive been called a redneck numerous times for my beliefs (trust me im the farthest thing from a redneck…my in laws though….well…no comment)
    because im voting mccain im being called an ididot…
    i think certain obama voters are idiots but not all are…EVERYONE IS ENTITLED TO THEIR OWN OPINION …thats why we are a free country…support your own candidate and quit bashing everyone that doesnt agree with you



  58. 58

    So rednecks are evil haters who should be despised, mocked and discounted UNLESS they support the messiah OBAMAMA! Got it.



  59. 59

    Re: Plinkie9
    To hell with the "experience" argument. McCain will drop dead and they y'all be left with SARAH PALIN. what a pity.



  60. 60

    Of course a redneck would vote for Obama.
    Based on Obama's plans, hew wants to give hand outs.

    Basically, there is now reason to aspire to work hard and make something of yourself anymore because while you bust your ass, there will be someone else just breeezing through life and if you know what Obama says, "hew isn't trying to punish your success, he just wants to spread YOUR wealth around.

    Get ready folks, with an Obama win, you will see serious job cuts, worse than right now.

    As I have mentioned many times, most business owners are smart enough to take the tax hits personally, they will take it from their employees benefits.
    May sound wrong but it's business.

    Oh, on all those college kids voting for Obama cause it's "cool", good luck finding a job, or at least one with good pay.

    Don't complain though, you are going to bring it on yourself!



  61. 61

    Haha. Funny Perez.
    I have a question, why is everyone who does not agree with Perez constantly commenting and bashing his free speech right on promoting Obama. IT IS HIS WEBSITE!!! If you don't want to read it, don't. If I don't want to read a story, I don't. Just sayin'.

    Terrorists for McCain!

    WASHINGTON — Al-Qaida supporters suggested in a Web site message this week they would welcome a pre-election terror attack on the U.S. as a way to usher in a McCain presidency.

    The message, posted Monday on the password-protected al-Hesbah Web site, said if al-Qaida wants to exhaust the United States militarily and economically, "impetuous" Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain is the better choice because he is more likely to continue the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    "This requires presence of an impetuous American leader such as McCain, who pledged to continue the war till the last American soldier," the message said. "Then, al-Qaida will have to support McCain in the coming elections so that he continues the failing march of his predecessor, Bush."

  67. 67

    Cool, article, what does this tell you? Even die hard rednecks see the obvious choice. Who the hell is still votig for McCain anyway? Greedy bastards and fake religious conservatives. I'm so sick of people bitching and saying that Obama is going to give "hard-earned" people's money away? Do you honestly believe all these people became rich by being hard workers? You guys who believe this are a bunch of idiots. People have been getting rich at the expense of middle and low class labor for centuries. They got rich by outsourcing their work and making you and your parents lose jobs. They got rich by paying workers low wages and no benefits. They got rich by using others in need. It's time to wake up America. No one is looking for a handout, so why is it all these huge corporations are always getting them by receiving disgustingly sweaty amounts of cash and tax breaks? The middle class is the backbone of America, there would be no wealth without them to begin with - All you fat lazy fucks riding on the backs of immigrant workers will now have to pay , deal with it.



  68. 68

    Oh yeah and I forgot to mention. I didn't hear any rich people complaining when the "middle" and "lower" class baied them out with their hard-earned money. Fuck all McCain supporters. They are a bunch of greedy dick sucking religious fakes.



  69. 69

    Re: McCainIsMyHero – No, that's the old guy. Have you wondered why his speeches are the same word for word? Practice makes perfect! The impotent one never gets it up enough to ever squirt a little pook. How can he conceive a presidency without being erect? The she bitch gives him a rise now and then, but the old hound dog hangs low. Like a used rubber. Only, the cum is Todd's. But Todd hates America. Ya, the first dude hates America.

    NOTHING CHANGING THERE BUT MCCAIN'S STAINED UNDERWARE.

    Re: gines – The last time I checked this was Perez's site. He can post whatever he likes. I'm not fond of some of his celeb posts, but I know I have the option of not reading them. If you don't like his views go to another site.

  77. 77

    hope they enjoy the hunting now bc if obama gets elected there go there guns bc he wants to take them away along with a lot of other things.
    vote mccain, obama is not the man who will bring change!



  78. 78

    Re: sweetpiece – i find it hard to believe you have kids since you spend so much time on here…LOSERRRRRR



  79. 79

    " He's pretty near the smartest guy who's ever run for president."…I say….how would we know, he has not released his any of his grades.

    " He's not going to try to take away your guns, no matter what the NRA says."…And I say,,,he has voted to take them away in the past, why would he not in the future. When guns are illegal, the only people who will have them are the criminals and the government until the government eventually confiscates ALL guns.

    "My dad used to say, 'A poor man who votes for a Republican is a fool.' " …And I say….A poor person does not vote republican because democrats will increase their benefits.

    Re: Renfamous
    No one can see through all of the empty promises, it's pretty scary. I'm not saying all Obama supporters are naive, but the number I come across who have no knowledge of his policies is astounding. It's sad that so many Americans vote on a candidates celebrity and not his experience or policies.

  81. cmd08 says – reply to this


    81

    And everyone says that McCain's supporters are the racists? This is a very racist post if you ask me. Just assuming that "rednecks" are for McCain and against Obama, that's just plain ignorant. I'm from the South, NC to be exact, and I know ALOT of "rednecks" that support Obama. I'm talking tractor drivin, field plowin, lawnmower racin' rednecks who love Obama.

    I, on the other hand, can't stand Obama. He's going to ruin our country more than it's ruined already. He's a smooth talker, I'll give that to him. He has all the right things to say, but he's full of hot air. McCain sucks too. We are just screwed.

    And the fact that YOU endorse Obama should turn people away from him. I'm surprised he hasn't contacted you telling you to stop writing about him and endorsing him. But then again…this IS Obama we are talking about. He'll do anything to get his scummy little foot in office. Whoever the celebs are for is exactly who I'm not for. Celebs need to keep their big mouths shut when it comes to politics or anything important.

  100. 100

    Re: McCainIsMyHero – Obama was at the top of his class. He got into school by his own means.
    Unlike McPain, bottom of his class (thank God for daddy and grand-dad!!!), & crashed 7 planes (joe shmoe wouldn't get more than 1 chance). AND he CAN
    NOT read a teleprompter.
    I know your use to a dumb-ass, loud mouth, little dick-something to prove Prez.
    Georgie had been governor, even Jimmy Carter had a lot of experience(I know how you right wingers love to bring him up).
    Abraham Lincoln, NOTHING!
    If Mccain didn't have conections he would have NEVER gotten his bloody "experience"!
