Robert Redford on Obama: 'Like So Many Others I'm Beginning to Wonder Just Where the Man Stands' By Noel Sheppard Created 09/03/2011 - 10:31am
Barack Obama's Hope and Change ether appears to be wearing off on Robert Redford.
On Friday evening, the Oscar-winning actor and environmental activist published a rather scathing piece at the Huffington Post about the man Hollywood blindly put all its faith behind in 2008:
One reason I supported President Obama is because he said we must protect clean air, water and lands. But what good is it to say the right thing unless you act on it? Since early August, three administration decisions -- on Arctic drilling, the Keystone XL pipeline and the ozone that causes smog -- have all favored dirty industry over public health and a clean environment. Like so many others, I'm beginning to wonder just where the man stands.
After listing his grievances with recent Obama environmental decisions, Redford concluded:
I have to believe that President Obama still knows it's important to protect clean air, water and lands. Like so many, I'm waiting for him to stand up for all that. I'm waiting for him to stand up for our future. But we can't wait forever.
In reality, what Americans from all walks of life are learning - even Hollywoodans! - is the man they fell in love with despite his record or lack thereof really has no core beliefs or deeply-held positions.
He is an illusion masterfully crafted by himself, his handlers, and his sychophant supporters in the press.
What Redford and "so many others" are beginning to realize is that when you strip back the veneer, there's nothing but cheap particleboard held together with Elmer's Glue.
Nevertheless, they'll all happily support him next November despite his deficiencies and their disappointment.
Makes you wonder whose hypocrisy is worse - his or theirs.
Some people are just slow learners.
There is no man.
There are no cojones.
Therefore, there is not now, nor ever there was -— a stand.
BS. Roberto hasn't learned anything!
So Redford finally removed his head from his a$$ and looked around...
What, you wanted to give up your AC and ride your bike?
Well, who’s stopping you?
PS what future?
So Redford’s going to vote for the GOP nominee?
Redford will always be a tree worshipper, even as their roots reach into his coffin six feet under to feed upon him.
He really is that stupid, isn’t he?
If you had a daughter or grand daughter, he wants her in a burka, hijab or whatever cloak his kind uses to subvert womens' equality. He wants to enslave, kill or convert your male heirs. He wants the destruction of this country, period. You helped him get there, mother f@cker.
My thought exactly.
I could distill his piece down to this: “I’m a dim bulb who is easily taken in by a smooth-talking community organizer.”
Obama is doing exactly what we predicted he would do, well before he was elected'
They though having a black president would be cool and politically correct and all they noticed was his color!
You know Bammy is doing bad when this dude bashes him. LOL!
Well said, Gaffer. My sentiments exactly.
And the only thing Redford has a problem with is that he isn’t being ‘green’ anough...
That whole creeping socialism thingy must be OK
Hell, we all knew that before he was elected. All this environment stuff is great, but not at the destruction of the human race.
You’d think if anyone would NOT be taken in by the Styrofoam Greek columns and the reverb effects added to the audio it would be someone from Hollywood who has been around those effects their whole career and knows the business of manufacturing illusions. Apparently not, in a perfect world, maybe, but not in this one!
