‘Misleading’ Andy Griffith Ads Cost Taxpayers $3 Million, Gov’t Documents Show

It's too bad his persona is not at all like the real person. As a matter of fact, three of the four main characters on the Andy Griffith show are the exactly the opposite of who they portrayed on the screen. Andy Griffith has always been a mean leftist, Opie (Ron Howard) grew up to be everything but what his fictional father taught him to be and Aunt Bea was an absolute witch in real life.
The federal government spent $3.1 million on TV ads featuring actor Andy Griffith touting the new health care law that a non-partisan watchdog group says are misleading.

“Currently, about one in every four beneficiaries is enrolled in a Medicare Advantage plan,” said, a project of the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg Public Policy Center.

“For many of them, the words in this ad ring hollow, and the promise that ‘benefits will remain the same’ is just as fictional as the town of Mayberry was when Griffith played the local sheriff,” the group said in an article titled “Mayberry Misleads on Medicare.”
Now "Bea" is long dead, Ronny Howard is a 50 year corrupted Hollywood elite pushing every liberal cause that enamours him with his contemporaries and Andy Griffith is a Dinosaur that likely never believed a word he uttered in his signature show. Considering he is now drawing on that "persona" to shaft the American elderly, I have no sympathy for him whatsoever.
