i feel glad when barry’s glad


Washington Post: Barry Manilow is setting the record straight: He’s an Obama guy for 2012, not a Ron Paul-ite.

In Tuesday’s roundup of how the Celebrity Primary is shaping up, we cited Manilow’s vocal enthusiasm for the libertarian Republican. “I agree with just about everything [Paul] says,” the crooner told the Daily Caller in a widely-circulated interview. (Of course, the Internet seems to widely circulate pretty much anything about Ron Paul.)

Manilow wrote us a pleasant note to clarify:

“Although I agree with some of what Ron Paul says, I am not actually endorsing him in the 2012 presidential race, nor have I ever told anyone that I was.” Seems that while Manilow made an eye-catching $2,300 contribution to the Texas congressman’s 2008 campaign, he also — like many showbiz colleagues — sprinkled cash equally on Obama, Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton during the primary, plus $28,500 to the Obama Victory Fund. And he plans to vote for Obama next year. “He loves his president,” a rep said.


Thanks Hopefruit!

      It’s proof the media will distort, spin, lie, mislead to discredit our president. We’ve got to trust our hearts, our God-given instincts to know TRUTH for oursleves.

    Consistent with the general positive theme of “PressOn” and “YesWeCan” here’s another favorite from Barry: “I made it through the rain.”

      I have now vowed never, ever, ever to question Barry’s genius ….. all these fans you’ve mentioned Ametia, I’m just not brave enough to upset them. 😆

        I’m sure soon-to-be Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren would love this tune from Mr. Manilow. It’s one of my favorites. My ex took every LP I owned by white artists and burned them. Well now, I guess that’s why he’s my EX. LMBAO

    Not a Manilow fan, so I had to go back to 3Chics to again listen to Gladys Knight & the Pips sing “My Imagination”. (WHEW!) 🙂

      LOL Glad you like the feature of the week. GGail; I love you honesty. I come from a family of 11 siblings. Our taste in music runs the gamut.

    Oh great. Now the “liberal” media will have to find another Hollywood star to hate President Obama.

    I just could not understand how a man who writes about Love could support a hater.
