Andy Griffith throws away 50 years of good faith in 30 seconds

Recently, HHS recruited none other than Andy Griffith to shill for Obamacare:

That’s right, folks, just forget everything you know and trust ol’ Sheriff Andy. Would Opie’s pa lie to ya? ‘Course he wouldn’t.

When you enlist a beloved American icon to promote your massive new entitlement program, you might expect him to affect its popularity. Bring it up to his level.

Whoops! Public Polling Policy:

You know how bad things are for Democratic political figures these days? Even Andy Griffith’s poll numbers have seen a significant decline in the last 2 years.

Our latest North Carolina poll found Griffith at 44/22 in the state for a net favorability of +22. That represents a 25 point decline from June of 2008 when Griffith was at a net +47 (56/9.)

There’s not much doubt that it’s Griffith’s forays into politics, most recently in support of the health care bill, that are driving down his poll numbers.

Either that or the last 2-3 seasons of Matlock. Okay, okay, we get it, they’re guilty.

    I can’t tell you how much Andy Griffith’s, and Ron Howard/Opie’s, betrayal to me, and all the American People, has been.. Just devastating.. I had no idea, that the man, I grew up with watching on the Andy Griffith Show, all those years ago, that he would turn out to be an Anti-American Obama Socialist Marxist.. It’s just a backstabbing, in your face, kind of betrayal.. that’s all I can say about it.. it’s too bad that he just doesn’t get it.. that Liberal Socialist Marxism, is NOT American, and NOT what American’s want.!!!
