In the 2008, America elected “the biggest celebrity in the world“, Barack Obama. Oh yes, America, we got “one cool president!” However, that “cool” seems to be wearing off- even in Hollywood!
First, one of Obama’s strongest supporters in 2008 has now retracted his support of President Cool! Matt Damon is quite disappointed in Obama, and, in a very strange turn of events, even complimented President George W. Bush for his progress on various AIDS initiatives. He went so far as to say he could kiss Dubya!
Then there’s the now famous rant from comedian Jon Lovitz, for which he is now being accused of threatening Obama. In a report from The Blaze, Jon Lovitz made an appearance on the Dr. Drew Pinsky show, Mr. Lovitz said of Obama:
“…he’s creating a class warfare in a country where there is no class structure. Anybody can go from being broke to being wealthy.”
In Mr. Lovitiz original tirade that sets the stage for the accusation from Dr. Pinsky, the comedian said:
“…I voted for the guy and I’m a Democrat.”
Finally, there is Ariana Huffington, co-founder of The Huffington Post. On Monday, Ms. Huffington made an appearance on CBS “This Morning”, where she said the “spiking the football” ad put out by the Obama campaign, which politicizes Osama bin Laden’s death, “is one of the most despicable things you can do.”
Many Americans who voted for Obama in the 2008 election have said they will not vote for him again. Now, celebrities are disappointed in President Cool.
So now the real question for Mr. Damon, Mr. Lovitz and Ms. Huffington is this:
Will you vote for Barack Obama in 2012? Or will you dare to cross over the “political line” and vote for Mitt Romney? Or will you simply stay home and not vote?
