Russell Crowe Calls Obama 'the Light and the Future'

Russell Crowe Calls Obama 'the Light and the Future'

Four years ago, celebrities were describing then-Sen. Barack Obama as if we had never seen a politician like him before.

The glowing adjectives rolled off their professionally trained tongues – even though Obama’s track record hardly merited such praise.

Perhaps Russell Crowe is just trying to play catch up.

The “Gladiator” star took to Twitter this weekend to let his followers know he doesn’t endorse candidates. A few characters later, Crowe broke his own word.

Villagers,I don’t endorse politicians.Not my thing.However, Obama is the light & the future.Keep going towards the light. Put America first.

Crowe, who appears to think audiences enjoyed his ghastly “Robin Hood” reboot, apparently hasn’t been impacted by the Obama economy. Or, perhaps, his Internet browser is still feeding him headlines from 2008.
