Our Take!

Celebrity singer James Taylor says Pres. Barack Obama is the greatest president of all-time. While some have criticized Taylor for his comments, I think the bigger problem is that anyone is interested in what celebrities think about politics in the first place. Just because Taylor is an exceptional musician doesn’t mean he’s qualified to be a leading voice on issues related to politics or public policy. But I don’t blame Taylor for expressing his feelings; I blame us for caring.

“I’ve been watching politics since Eisenhower and Adlai Stevenson, when dinosaurs roamed the Earth, and Obama is my favorite, favorite president,” Taylor told AP. “I am just thankful for every day that he’s in office. I am so proud that he represents my country and I think he represents me — I think he represents the America that I know.”
