January 29, 2010 Mel Gibson: Obama Doesn't Have What It Takes to 'Fix' America

The outspoken actor says the president has an 'impossible' task on his hands.

Never one to shy away from voicing his opinion, actor Mel Gibson has declared that he doesn't believe President Obama has the means necessary to "fix" the United States.

“[Obama] is a man with an impossible task on his hands," Gibson told Pop Tarts at the Hollywood premiere of his latest drama thriller "Edge of Darkness" on Tuesday night. "He got left a mess and I wish him all the best but I don’t think he’s going to fix it in five minutes and probably not in his entire tenure."

REVIEW: Gibson's 'Edge of Darkness' and more weekend releases.

Gibson's thoughts come as no surprise, as his new film explores the dark side of politics. He stars as homicide detective Thomas Craven, who is embroiled in an investigation into the murder of his activist daughter. In the process, Craven uncovers a corporate cover-up and government collusion that attracts an agent tasked with cleaning up the evidence.

“[Obama] is a man with an impossible task on his hands,"

That depends on the definition of "Fix" and who's doing the defining.

I say it's not an impossible task.

I saw that movie tuesday night. didn’t care for it...as a whole. It had some good parts. It was well made. Acting was excellent. Cinematography was excellent. Plot/story was mediocre. Ending was a little abrupt...like they were running short of money and decided to edit what already in the can, plus shoot one or two more scenes.

Mel sounds pretty stupid in that quote.
Sounds like Obama spinning about himself.

Especially when he is doing everything he can to make matters worse.

i wonder if Mel agrees with his buddy Danny G that global warming caused the Haiti earthquake.
or was it a lethal weapon (HAARP)

I’m not interested in anything Mel Gibson has to say, or any movies he may make.

There is no “fix” for this mess.
However, you CAN make it worse ... and that’s what Obama and the Dems are doing.

lets just remember MEL that the rats controlled the HOUSE two years before the financial crisis and that the rat cronies protected FANNIE and FREDDIE while those agencies doomed the whole of America...

and we had people like zero sueing the banks to lend more money to poor risks and we had zero in the SENATE for two years before his coronation....

I blame a lot of people but mostly fannie and freddie and their rat enablers.....

Mel....go stuff it...

There’s a fix.

It’s called capitalism, sans evil, meddling government goons, and their banker bedfellows.

Communism will fix nothing, Mel.

There’s nothing to “fix”. The economy will recover all by itself... already is. All they need to do is stop messing with it, and cut taxes, and it would happen that much faster.
