Barack Obama supporter James Taylor doesn't just think the U.S. president is great he believes Obama is the greatest of all-time.

"I've been watching politics since (Dwight) Eisenhower and Adlai Stevenson, when dinosaurs roamed the Earth, and Obama is my favorite, favorite president," Taylor said in an interview Wednesday. "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."

Taylor, 67, is a recipient of the National Medal of Arts. The pop icon performed "America the Beautiful" at Obama's second inauguration in 2013.

"I had a really tough time during the Cheney-Bush years, I did, and I had a hard time accepting that that administration represented me because I don't think they did," Taylor said.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer also called Obama's family "precious" and said he appreciates the U.S. leader because he's "sane" and "balanced."

"He promised to give us a health care system, it's a work in progress, but he has put us on a road to that," Taylor said. "I'm so grateful for what he's done for gay rights and for the emancipation of gay people. Particularly from my point of view, I think that was so overdue and so important, and so important for America to be ahead of the curve on this."

Well bless his heart

It's said if one remembers the 60s, one wasn't there.  Taylor was definitely there .... and partaking.
