Paul McCartney should “apologize to the American people” says Congressman Sir Paul McCartney made a comical jab at former President George W. Bush in accepting a Gershwin Price – and now a U.S. Congressman wants him to apologize.

After receiving his prize for songwriting from President Barack Obama, McCartney, 67, exclaimed “After the last eight years, it’s great to have a president who knows what a library is.”

“Getting this prize would just be good enough, but getting it from this president…I don’t think there could be anything more special than to play here,” McCartney said.

House Minority Leader, Republican John Boehner was ticked off over McCartney’s favoritism for Obama and is now demanding that the former Beatles performer issue an apology according to the U.K.’s Daily Telegraph.

“I hope he’ll apologize to the American people for his conduct which demeaned him, the White House and President Obama,” exclaimed Boehner.

Despite McCartney’s slight, President Bush was reportedly a voracious reader in the White House, steeped in historical knowledge.

    Welll, first off i didnt have to read FOX NEWS (NO ONE IN MY BOOK) TO HAVE MY BLOOD BOIL over this IGNORANT REMARK, the moment i heard it first I thought WHAT A FOOL……….go back to your yellow submarine Sir Paul my ARSE, are you going to bail out America with your Billions, WHICH BECAUSE OF OVOMIT WE OWE, In case you didnt know?????????

    Actually, we owe trillions because of bush, who also gave the first huge bailout to the banksters that politicians are a puppit for. Rightwing pundits and Faux News put blame Obama for everything bush did to America. But the saddest part is, it was a light hearted joke you guys want make into a big deal. Ford fell a lot and we laughed, Bush had trouble talking and we laugh. Us americans have a sense of humor, except, it seems, the right-wing attack machine. You guys need to lighten up, you’ll get your chance to take this country back n the track to Fascism, be patient. I don’t want to make Glenn Beck cry again, but Paul was funny and very smooth that night . You can try, but you can’t take it away from him. He’s cool. You’re a fool.

    Open Letter to Paul McCartney

    I agree with you that George Bush is not very bright. In fact, I think he is a moron. He does, however, have an MBA from Harvard which means that he is better educated than you and the entire royal family combined. For a visitor to make derogatory comments about a national leader is, to say the least, in extremely bad taste. For that same visitor to presume to instruct the citizens of that country on how they should treat they leader is both stupid and obnoxious. I invite you to go back to England and hump that dowdy old frump’s leg.

    Like it or not, Paul McCartney had a right to say whatever he wanted while on American soil. Yes, even if he was in the White House, is the White House immune to our basic constitutional freedoms? The bigger question is, why is John Boehner wasting his time drafting up these kind of statements? Doesn’t he have anything better to do? You know, like finding solutions to our problems, like the Gulf oil spill and the current Middle East crisis? Where’s his Republican leadership, his solutions and ideas? There is none, CRICKETS. Are we supposed to take the Republican party seriously with this kind of nonsense?? This is LAUGHABLE.

    For your information Ms. Lourdes Mc Cartney, probably just like you is not a citizen of this country, thereby no American freedoms belong to him.Secondly, if he had 2 brain cells that worked in conjunction with each other he would have known the drivel he spouted was not only wrong but, insulting to the American people. The friggin’ bozo is a guest in this country much like the Bozo that now occupies the White House!

    c’mon people, are you really that upset over a silly comment from a Beatle? While I don’t agree that G.W. is as ignorant as people portray him I also don’t agree that Paul is “the light weight sappy Beatle”. as he has been portrayed over the years….an irreverent comment from him is really what I would expect. It doesn’t change my view of him or the current President. I don’t look to Paul McCartney for political wisdom any more than I look to President Obama for my own moral compass. So…how about we stick to what is important, I don’t need to list the real problems America is facing…Congressman Boehner, please focus on what is important as this most certainly is a waste of time and energy.

    Americans with their panties in a bunch are so funny. If you didn’t realize that’s what the entire frickin world was saying about george bush, then you must have had your head in the sand the last eight years.

    What a bimbo ‘Sir Paul” is…while his his country is responsible for the worst environmental disaster in this country….he has the audacity to take a shot at a former US president. It always amazes me that those types, especially celebrities, that depend on the public to support their ridiculous fortunes/lifestyles, will alienate half of their potential fan base. Good luck on tour you scummy limy..I’m afraid you are now in that number..

    My word, You guys need to get your panties out of a wad. George Bush was an idiot. We all know it, so what is the big deal? Do we have freedom of speech in this nation or not?

    HipMonkey. You are a monkey. And, this idiot…THe Great 1. What does that mean? The 1 Great Steaming Pile? If that is the case, you are aptly named. Lourdes…of course the Stanley Steamer has the right to say what he did. Do you know why that is? Do you? You too, are a monkey.

    Paul McCartney is about as relevant as the stanley steamer I left in my toilet bowl this morning. The guy simply has no class. Oh, and his music is/was AVERAGE at best.

    What more proof the the GOP has no sense of humor….Oh WAIT…Two words…Sarah Palin. 100 years from now the music of Paul Mccartney will still be played. What will we remember of GW. All those Amercians killed for no apparent reason in Iraq..
