Actor Matt Damon got swept up in Obama-mania like 97 percent of the film industry.
Many of Damon’s peers have since bent over backwards – and then some – to explain away the president’s less than stellar tenure in the White House.
Damon isn’t having it.
“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,’ ” Damon told the magazine. “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.”
Damon pointed to the Occupy Wall Street movement as proof that more needs to be done. “If the Democrats think that they didn’t have a mandate–people are literally without any focus or leadership, just wandering out into the streets to yell right now because they are so pissed off,” he said, adding, “Imagine if they had a leader.”
