Hillary Clinton Ripped by George Clooney
Syriana star George Clooney is the latest Hollywood liberal to trash Hillary Rodham Clinton. The liberal actor let the 2008 Democratic presidential frontrunner have it while citing his own brilliance and expertise in foreign affairs.
MSNBC Scoop queen Jeannette Walls delivers:
George Clooney — an outspoken critic of the Bush administration — also has some harsh words for Hillary Clinton.
The “Syriana” star says he is “frustrated and disappointed” that Clinton and many other Democrats were “scared” to oppose the war on Iraq, and “now they are paying the price.”
“I hate it when smart men and women are saying, ‘Well, if I knew then what I know now,’ ” Clooney told the Sunday Times of London.
“The fact is: I knew it then and I don’t have national security clearance…"
Heh. George Clooney, star of a CIA movie, now a CIA expert.
And they wonder why Hollywood stars are mocked and lampooned when they try to speak out and be the 'smartest guy in the room' on all issues political.
Walls notes that Clooney is ready to give the Hollywood kiss of death to poor Barak Obama.
“Of course (Obama) doesn’t want to right now; he just wants to be senator for Illinois,” Clooney told the paper. “But he could attract the two groups who rarely show up to vote — young people and blacks. He’s the guy to get behind.”
Well, he may have been. But now that Hollywood appears to have adopted him as their favorite candidate - not anymore.
