Ron Howard For Obama: Although not particularly funny (like the Mac-PC commercials) or substantive (like the Mac-PC commercials) this celebrity endorsement is sort of amazing.

It seems to me that actors/actresses/entertainers risk more by endorsing a candidate than the candidate gains. Do you know anyone at all who is voting for a particular candidate because of an entertainer’s endorsement? Do you know any voters who will boycott a particular entertainer because of a political endorsement?

It would be nice if they would have ejected him with the lunar module from Apollo 13. That would have been Hollywood at its finest.

Now, it is difficult-—no impossible—for me to see movies where the actors have been on a polotical soapbox. I can’t get into the role they are playing.

the old movie studios knew what they were doing when they kept their big actors out of any controversy. they were protecting their “product”...and that’s what actors are...a product that is used in films.

"...not some latest Hollywood trend."

Yeah, right Dopey!

Seems all your 'loose' friends are acting like we care what they think.

Shut up & Direct, Act & Sing !

I couldn't watch the whole thing.

Opie, like the rest of Hollywood's loonies, has grown older but no wiser. Sad.

Ron Howard should seriously think about keeping the rug. He is seriously nasty to look at when he’s bald.

“Do you know any voters who will boycott a particular entertainer because of a political endorsement?”

I haven't been in a movie theater in 22 years because I decided that I didn't want my money going to the liberal actors.

I own only about only a couple dozen DVD’s - 99% of which were bought used and therefore my money didn't go to the liberal actors.

As for movies and TV shows - there are a lot of them that I won't watch because of the liberal actors in them.

I know my personal boycott doesn't make a dent in the profits or salaries of these people but it makes me feel better.

Ron Howard donated ten grand to Bubba's defense fund.

Go ahead and endorse Obama, Howard. Hooray for Hollyweird.

Not one word about Obama’s bonafides.

Not one word about what Obama will do or how he will do it.

Merely an attempt to hide Obozo behind beloved characters which typify a world that Obama, his wife, his preacher and his friend Bill Ayres despise and want with all of their hearts to destroy.

Ron Howard wants us to vote with “courage and vision”. These are words which will come back to haunt this pathetic dupe if the man he endorsed but failed even to describe gets in.

In this endorsement “Sheriff Taylor” just pissed on the graves of the LEO’s the weathermen slaughtered.

LOL!!!! Richie Cunningham and the Fonz complaining. Gotta love it! They portrayed teens during the Happy Days, the IKE years and the show ran in the worst of times, the Carter Years. Dumb Ass add, but the heads of mush will love it.

I’ll never look at Opie, Andy, and the Fonz the same way again. They actually think that we need their political advice.
