Actor Who Plays POTUS on Fox’s ‘24’ Touts He’s ‘a Big Fan’ of ‘Smart’ Obama
newsbusters.org ^ | 6/16/2014 | Brent Baker

William Devane (IMDb page), who plays “President James Heller” on Fox’s prime time 24: Live Another Day, told USA Today that “obviously I’m a big fan of Obama, as a guy who’s smart and articulate” and, in his acting, “I say to myself, ‘what has got to be going on in the private side of this guy’s brain’ – the pressure, the racism that is thrown out — and he handles it with such dignity.’”

Say, isn't he a spokesman for some gold supplier?

Hmmm.

Devane, what an asshat. Name implies he is Irish, maybe he is related to the Irish side of Obamhole’s family alleged family tree?

This is one more reason not to watch that stupid show and its ridiculous countdown clock.

I challenge Mr. Devane to provide one verifiable, legitimate example of “racism” that has been “thrown out” at Barack Hussein Obama at any time during his presidency.

Why yes, I do believe he would be included in the evil 1%’r club. But he probably supports the ows’ers. Just not on his ranch if you don’t mind.

He’s also a big fan of ripping off gullible frightened people wanting to retain their wealth. Sells “Gold” because it’s “always gonna go up, up, up” so it’s okay to pay top dollar for gold, while decrying his contemporaries out there “ripping off the people selling reverse mortgages.” Wholly laughable.

I wonder how much he got paid to say this.

That’s too easy. Anytime anyone says anything opposing anything the lyin’king says or proposes is obviously done because of his race. Not sure which one since he’s a half-frican murican.

I bet Rosland Capital is just thrilled about this. Now you have a good reason to buy your gold somewhere else. You might consider giving them a call and explaining that to them.

Why do we care about the opinions of actors?

As a group, actors/entertainers are the most dysfunctional portion of our society, intellectually, morally, and spiritually:

We EXPECT them to have financial issues to the point of bankruptcy, despite their vast incomes.

We EXPECT them to cheat on their spouses, have indiscriminate sex, and incur multiple divorces.

We EXPECT them to have drug and alcohol abuse issues, and to be arrested/photographed in compromising situations.

One hundred years ago, you would not allow your daughters to date an actor - they were treated like carnies today.

But somehow, our society has come to venerate these pathetic and ignorant pretenders, to emulate their lifestyles and follow their advice.

Smart and articulate, smart and articulate.... why do people compliment obama with these words? Is it because it's nicer than saying he's been a gawd-awful president?

I found this on the IMDB about Devane:

Owned a restaurant, Devane’s, that specializes in New York-Italian cuisine. Originally located in Indio, the restaurant expanded to Rancho Mirage, CA. Additional restaurants in La Quinta and Palm Springs were slated for a 2008 opening, but due to the economy, they closed.

Enjoy the irony.
