Pat Boone, 78, made a guest appearance on Fox Business News on Wednesday night according to Billboard reports posted on Friday, March 15, and caused quite a stir while talking with Neil Cavuto while giving his expert opinion on the deficit fight, and sequestration.
Pat Boone reached back into the past several years of Tea Party rhetoric to accuse Obama of being a socialist, bent on destroying economic progress through policies advocated by Saul Alinsky.
The legendary 50s and 60s hit singer, and song writer s best known for his cover versions of black R&B artists songs, back when parts of the United States were segregated.
As a well known avowed conservative, Pat Boone stated about Barack Obama,
"He is following his playbook, which is Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals," Boone charged. "This is the guy that trained him to be a community organizer, a Marxist, a socialist, a progressive, who wrote the rules for doing what Mr. Obama is doing."
During the discussion Cavuto suggested that he differed with Boone on that accusation, and Pat Boone said,. "He has a plan, he thinks it’s good for America -- a virtually socialist nation in which nobody gets rich, government is in charge of everything," he said.
Neil Cavuto implied, jokingly, that Obama was individually targeting Pat Boone, to which the singer responded that he was, indeed, on the president's "enemies list" in 2009 -- a document published by the tabloid "The Globe."
Pat Boone's celebrity history reveals that h\during the prime of his career he scored 18 Top 10 singles from 1955-62, including six No. 1s. Billboard ranks him as the No. 2 singles act of the 1950s, behind Elvis Presley.
