He doesn’t show his face, but actor Tom Hanks has a role in a trailer for an upcoming short film about President Obama’s first term.

The “Forrest Gump” star is the narrator.

"How do we understand this president and his time in office?” Hanks asks. “Do we look at the day’s headlines or do we remember what we as a country have been through?"

Here’s something radical, Tom. Why don’t we look at this presidency through the eyes of the Consitiution?

Stupid is as stupid does, Tommy.

It’s never an issue for rich liberals. They have more money than they can spend, and rules are made for little people.

The goal of the rich liberals is to control us little people, so we don’t foul up their world.

I wonder if this this short can be summed up in 2 words? “Blame Bush”?

I suspect that what the idiots who are making this film will come up with will cause widespread projectile vomiting.

Exactly...those people who already got theirs' love socialism...it keeps out their competition....free markets help people to get their foot in the door towards prosperity...but once you're there, you want to shut the door behind you, and keep everybody else out, and usually it involves getting some pals in the government to help you shut that door.

It must be hard to understand Hanks. He seems to have something stuck in his mouth.

You are exactly right about this..They want to be sure the freedom to challenge their position no longer exists..They want those ladder rungs to the American dream to be chopped off, except for those who please them.

I thought Clint Eastwood was the narrator of Obama’s commercial? (oh wait, that was Obama Motors commercial!)

This presents a golden opportunity.

Change the voice over narration to a Pee-Wee Herman type smarmy, nasty voice and rewrite the script.

““Do we look at the day’s headlines or do we remember what we as a country have been through?”

We look at what HE put this country through. He is a vacationing idiot. He knows nothing about how to run this country, he simply takes one vacation after another. He has been absent on every major issue.

Hanks is your typical leftie squishy Californian.
But his wife, Rita Wilson, is the hard-core one in the family.
Someplace out around Trotsky on the left-right continuum.

Exactly. So much happened so fast, we are overwhelmed. We need to relive it and remember. The same movie could be used as an indictment against The Won; except Hank’s movie will be full of spin and lies.

Lay down with Democrats and get up smelling like Shi’ite. So long Tom, you reek.

Just serves as a reminder for true Americans that we ought not give Hollywood a dime for their movies, for their rentals, for their endorsements.

That means not going to movies, period. Or renting them. Or glorifying them in any way.
