Forrest Gump will proudly Vote for Obama in 2012
In an interview with CNN, the actor who’s been on a media blitz promoting a new movie, explained his endorsement.
Host Kyra Phillips introduced the subject, saying: “All right. President Obama, you’ve been a big supporter…”
Interrupting, Hanks said, “And I will be again! Let me take it right now. I’m going to vote for him for his re-election in 2012. I beat to you the punch.”
Phillips pressed the actor for his thoughts on Obama’s “evolving” stance on gay marriage. “Does President Obama need to endorse it?” she asked.
Hanks, a longtime Democrat, went on to say that the president has not only lived up to his expectations but “expanded” them.
Said Hanks, “If you would have told me a few years ago that ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ would be repealed and about a billion jobs at General Motors and Chrysler would have been saved because the president was smart enough and strong enough and bold enough to do so, I would have said, ‘Wow. That’s a good president, I think I’ll vote for him again.’
Yet another rich to his ass Progressive-Socialist-Liberal celebrity, telling the uncivilized unwashed masses how to think from the back seat of his limo.
A billion jobs at GM and Chrysler? Really Hanks? I know you’re not a smart man — I get it. But absolving these two car companies of more than $35 billion in debt at the taxpayer’s expense, documented accounting chicanery used to help the companies claim they’ve “paid back” their loans, and the newfound revelation that they eliminated pensions for all NON-UNION employees, is hardly something to be crowing about. Fascism is hardly something to which America should aspire. But I expect as much asininity from someone with an elementary grasp of both macroeconomics and reality.
AND How does one “save a billion jobs at General Motors and Chrysler” when the entire US Economy only has 131 million jobs? It figures that someone who doesn’t know the difference between “million” and “billion” would be an Obama supporter…
