Andy Williams: Obama Wants The Country To Fail

Old pop crooner Andy Williams, whose hits include 'Moon River,' has some choice words for "Marxist" President Obama.

Williams, 81, has always been a Republican (Ronald Reagan once declared his voice "an American treasure") but in the past has held more moderate views. He claims good friendship with the Kennedy family and thought that Bobby would have made a great president had he lived.

No such goodwill towards the current president, the Telegraph reports:

"Don't like him at all," he said, "I think he wants to create a socialist country. The people he associates with are very Left-wing. One is registered as a Communist.

"Obama is following Marxist theory. He's taken over the banks and the car industry. He wants the country to fail."
