Betty White supporting Obama
Politico ^ | 5-12-12 | CAITLIN MCDEVITT

Posted on 05/12/2012 11:43:15 AM PDT by tcrlaf

Actress Betty White is a big fan of President Barack Obama, the AP reports:

As she prepares to visit the Smithsonian Institution and National Zoo next week, White told The Associated Press she "very, very much favors" President Barack Obama in the election.

The 90-year-old actress said Friday she is very bi-partisan and has stayed away from politics all of her life. She usually never says who she is for or against because she doesn't want to turn off any of her adoring fans.

White says in this year's election, she likes what Obama has done and "how he represents us."

I wonder what her relatives in St. Olaf think about all this
How the hell does a woman like Betty White, who loves dogs, support a guy who has no problem eating them

The president sent White a birthday card earlier this year.

This is why the old gal is for Obama. I would guess that otherwise, she is politically unsophisticated, ignorant and really doesn't care one way or another.

True. But I really don’t care what she thinks or supports. I don’t even watch her stupid program on tv.

With all due concern about disenfranchisement and respecting the constitutional right to vote, anyone who makes their presidential choice on the basis of Betty White’s endorsement probably shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

A number of women from her generation know nothing about politics. My late Aunt Mary would have been a few years older than Ms. White. Every election, my uncle had to give her a list of candidates to vote for. Women weren’t supposed to know or care about those things. The men were the ones who kept informed.

Bless her heart, but in this election, she is wrong.

“Now really. Who cares?”

Take an Internet cruise. It’s CLEAR that our largely gay media does, because they are reporting it EVERYWHERE.

Good for her? Why should she care a rat’s rear about Obamacare, she can afford the best health care around. The old battleax should pack it in, instead of making an a$$ of herself.

Betty White’s intellect never impressed me. At 90 years old she really just needs to STFU and gum her jello.

The 90-year-old actress said Friday she is very bi-partisan and has stayed away from politics all of her life. She usually never says who she is for or against because she doesn't want to turn off any of her adoring fans.

Betty White should have kept her pathetic admiration for Obama to herself. She probably figures that at her age and with her career doing well, she no longer has anything to lose by admitting she's another brain-dead Hollywood lemming eager to see America go over the cliff (economically, then in other ways) by supporting the Marxist Manchurian Candidate, Barack Hussein Obama.

Whatever slight respect I once had for Betty White, mostly based on her longevity (in both life and show business) and her love of animals just evaporated with her 'endorsement' of a radical, left-wing narcissist that detests the country that gave him the presidency.

Betty White proves that age does not automatically confer wisdom.

However, she needs the gigs and the money, so now she will speak up.

Maybe some of her generation can inform her how miserable BO has been for those who are NOT of her means.

according to virtualglobetrotting.com, this is Betty White's Los Angeles area home. Notice the guest and pool house? For one old lady. I wonder if she'll let some of her fellow Obama voters, who aren't flush with cash, live with her--you know, to spread the wealth?

>>>The 90-year-old actress said Friday she is very bi-partisan and has stayed away from politics all of her life.<<<

Having worked with, lived with, grown up with, and, God help me, even slept with those claiming to be liberals and leftists, this kind of statement is a dead giveaway that the speaker is doctrinaire leftist. One of the famous conceits of the left is their never-ending rant about how they are the ones who are balanced (therefore “bipartisan”) and how they’re not really political (sometimes expressed as their bastard child, “everyone is political,” and sometimes expressed by their cynical bastard child, “they’re all to blame.”)

Ideas provide motivation for actions. Anyone telling they’re not motivated by their beliefs is lying to you and sometimes themselves.

I truly believe in the First Amendment, but why can't these stupid drama types just keep it to themselves?

Political comments remove or interfere with the entertainment value of the person making the statement. I can never get past it whenever they appear on my TV screen. Consequently, most of the time, they get turned off!
