Matt Damon dismisses Barack Obama as a 'one term President'

Matt Damon has taken another swipe at Barack Obama and dismissed him as a 'one term President.' In his most ferocious attack to date, the Hollywood star vented his anger at the President's failure to bring about change in America.

He said: 'I've talked to a lot of people who worked for Obama at the grassroots level. One of them said to me, "Never again. I will never be fooled again by a politician".' 'You know, a one-term president with some balls who actually got stuff done would have been, in the long run of the country, much better.'

His latest attack was made in an interview for Elle magazine to promote his new film We Bought a Zoo.

Damon, 41,was one of the biggest Hollywood stars to stump for Obama during his 2008 election campaign. He attended fund raising events and was vocal in his support for the Democrat who was elected on a mandate of 'change' and 'hope'.

But over the last year the Bourne Identity star has changed his opinion - and been more than happy to publicise his disenchantment.

We are enraged because Obama is destroying America.

Matt Damon is enraged because Obama hasn't destroyed enough of it, fast enough.

No, Damon isn’t saying Obama is a one-termer. I think, from his Leftist view, he’d rather Obama be even MORE Communist, MORE statist, more radically left-wing, even if doing so meant he wouldn’t win re-election.

A stopped clock and room temp IQ actors both have the opportunity to be right - on occasion.

In this case I agree with his assessment of the Cretin-in-Chief.

Damon is too stupid to understand that Obama has passed his agenda. He is also too stupid to realize that it’s Obama’s agenda that is killing the economy. The useful idiots are always angry when the find out they have been used.

I’ll never understand why educated idiots who always become the useful idiots miss the part of their history where they are the 1st to die or go to prison in Marxist regimes.

I just bought and watched a movie he was in a long time ago.

Didn’t buy it because of him... got it because I remember it being good, and it is one of Coppola’s first.

Rumblefish.

I remember it being better than it seems as I watch it now.

Because they believe it won’t happen to them. Education does not always translate into common sense.

I bought the same movie. Not for Matt Damon, but rather Mickey Rourke.

Any good look at Diane Lane is time well spent!

Mickey Rourke is good to. He kinda fell off the radar for a long time, but he’s coming back.
