Very sad.
This is typical right wing ignorance. You think if Matt Damon is mad at Obama this somehow confirms your viewpoint or ideology.

I can't stand Obama either and it has nothing to do with your government hating, anti-middle class values.

Funny, I thought the Republicans needed the "jewels." If both sides are pissed off, maybe that is good....

As for Damon, he is a smart, handsome bad ass, rich kind of guy, why doesn't he run for Prez? Until then, I am going to put him in my Sean Penn, celebrity blowhard category. He is free to say whatever he want, but next time I see him giving a speech, I think I will go and wash my hair.

Say what you want about Arnold and Ronny, but they stepped onto the field instead of throwing spit balls from the stands.

Wow, I'm agreeing with Matt Damon?! Never, in a million years, thought that would happen. Guess it did.

The arrogance of some actors is just overwhelming-do they ever consider we don't give a damn what they think or say? Why do they think their opinions matter???

Yeah, how dare he question the dear leader.

Quite frankly the far left has by far the most recent to be angered over voting in Bush 3.0. However, they really shouldn't complain because they are going to push to help re-elect him anyway.

Someone tell me how that is not hardcore. That's some Pablo Escobar **** right there, bro.

Here's food for thought. If Obama decided he wanted you gone, guess where you would be. Go ahead. I got time. Guess. It starts with G and ends with one.
WTH is up with refering to them as the white guy and the black guy?

I have to laugh that in a forum where "teabagger" is used thousands of times you have an issue with "goon". Think about it, people are referring to a political group by the sex act where a man places his balls in the mouth of another person (in case you didn't know what it meant).

I prefer to treat a sitting president with more civility but seriously, you are just another of the extremists around here crying when the rudeness just happens to be turned in the direction of your guy.

P.S. and I even voted for Obama.

Had you been a forum member during the Bush years you would have heard all the gems he was called like bushhole and many many more besides the mundane village idiot, chimp, curious george, duh-byah and many many more.

Its amusing that the right wingers wish Obama were to the extreme left, and more forceful in his ways, as Matt Damon wanted him to be.

Yeah, there is some serious disconnect here when the same people who are constantly spouting off about what a 'dictator' he is, suddenly agree that he is lacking in that same area. Of course, if Mr. Damon had expressed complete satisfaction with Mr. Obama's tenure, his feelings would have no doubt been ignored by the OP.
Oh, well. I've given up expecting logical thought from some quarters.

As for Mr. Damon - he is as entitled as anyone to voice his opinions on any and everything. I appreciate that he cares about the country he and his family live in and I certainly do agree that the President has allowed himself to be pushed around by both sides of the aisle.
And, his new movie looks absolutely adorable.
