The Obama White House released this statement from the president today following the death of TV legend Andy Griffith:
Michelle and I were saddened to hear about the passing of Andy Griffith this morning. A performer of extraordinary talent, Andy was beloved by generations of fans and revered by entertainers who followed in his footsteps. He brought us characters from Sheriff Andy Taylor to Ben Matlock, and in the process, warmed the hearts of Americans everywhere. Our thoughts and prayers are with Andy’s family.
While I prefer to remember Griffith as Sheriff Andy, I'm sure the Obama administration will always hold him in high regard for his role as... a shill for ObamaCare:
