Tom Hanks for Barack Obama

Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks is publicly endorsing presidential hopeful Barack Obama.

“I’m Tom Hanks and I want Barack Obama to be the next president of our country,” he said in his short video titled, “Beware: Celebrity Endorsement.”

Continuing, Hanks said, “I want Barack Obama to be president of this country, a country that once said that people of his skin color were only 3/5 of a human being. My support for Obama isn’t just about breaking boundaries, it’s because of his character and vision.”

“As an official celebrity, I know my endorsement has just made your mind up for you,” the 51-year-old actor quipped.

    So Tom Hanks is saying we should vote for Obama because his skin color? That’s what it sounds like!
    Obama isn’t clear on his issues. Just keeps saying “Change” but hasn’t really said how nor does he have the experience to lead this nation, especially when there’s such a crisis in Israel and the Middle East. And he only disassociated himself with Rev. Wright when the polls indicated he was losing votes on account of him.

    I’m so over Barack and these over indulged celebrities endorsing him. something about it reeks and seems disingenuous. once again proving that power and money can buy someone a place in the white house. so much for that whole new poliics thing.

    He is said to be found by his fans on a celeb dating site named “M arryMil lio na ire.C om.” They said most of his fans like to go that site to chat about this stars.

    And apparently, Tom Hanks isn’t very smart at all. I’m so sick of liberal celebs. I no longer support Tom Hanks. Obama will 100% screw up our country!

    I hate when people argue politics….Tom Hanks has a view just like everyone else…and i think it should also be noted that when he said he is an official celebrity and it would make up your mind, etc. he was being sarcastic because so many celebrities say that type of stuff….he was on tv this morning…. lol I think the whole thing is quite funny….

    Barack is done for.

    As much as I would love to get into it, I’m not going to. We all have our own opinions, so I’ll leave it at that! :)

    I believe that Tom Hanks thinks too much of himself, as he says that his endorsement will change people’s minds. What? Are we all morons that we cannot figure out who we really want? What an ass****!

    Hillary Clinton is so fake. She stayed with Bill after Gennifer Flowers and Monica Lewinsky because she had plans for herself to run for office. She lied through her teeth about Bosnia. I have no respect for her. She is a joke!!!

    HILLARY ’08!!!

    TOM HANKS IS AN IMBECILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you follow his line of reasoning, shouldn’t we also VOTE for HILLARY because a WOMEN also did not have equal rights in this country?

    After all the reseach on this guy, all they found was what other people did or said. I’m convinced he’ll bring our troups home. As a white Texan female Rebublican, I will support him not for Hanks but because I share Obama’s vision. We must unite for Change in our country and the world!

    GO OBAMA!!!!

    Whether Tom endorses him or not, Obama is clearly the candidate with integrity and vision. HIllary does not represent the type of leadership that we, Americans, can respect or trust. And McCain is old and senile…

    Obama has dreams, that’s all. He isn’t a realist.

    Hilldog is a REALIST

    Why do I care who Tom Hanks is endorsing? Don’t like when celebrities start rambling about who they want to elect and who we should vote for. Most celebrities don’t have a clue what normal working class people deal with everyday because they live in their little insulated bubble. It’s laughable really.

    Interesting.. thanks for the post!

    So if oyu don’t like liberals or Barack Obama, vote for that louse McCain.

    McCain who has no clue of the difference between Shi’ite and Sunnis.
    The same man who wouldn’t mind staying in Iraq for the next 100 years and the same man who thinks we are “winning the war”

    There is no war to win!! We are fighting a never ending battle with people who have nothing better to do with their time.

    You are worried now about gas prices and the economy, bring on McCain and we will see a different story. But then again, American people are not know for their super intelligence.

    P.S. Tom Hanks says why he like Obama, and that is his RIGHT as an American!!!

    Or did you people forget about constitutional rights??

    melody Says:

    it’s SO obvious that he’s being sarcastic when he says that he makes up people’s mind for them…I mean come on…saying that AND meaning it would naturally have the opposite effect since!

    very well said betty # 11 I agree

    Mara Says:

    Go Hillary!!!!!

    A candidate who’s for ALL women–children–men, races, and faiths.

    Obama is proving that he is exactly what he has been judging!

    “Uncle” Wright said that on November 5 he’ll “come knockin’ on Obama’s door” if he is elected. America cannot take the risk of this man, who Barack and Michelle appear to still have in the “basement”, being a part of the next White House administration. Cheney has been running George W. Bush’s office and Wright will be running Barack Obama’s office.

    America has enormous challenges right now, and we don’t need the Obama-Wright administration to create greater injustices and worsening economics in our society.

    No, no, no…..not — —- America, but GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

    Okay, Tom, I care because? Your rich, what does it matter to you… Please, shut up!

    elma Says:

    Obama’s slogan should be: To vote for me is COOL.

    Come on, this country has some serious problems. His experience and past works don’t have me convinced that he will be a good president given the current condition of our country.

    These celebs are only for COOL stuff. They have MONEY to survive long cold winters, long long recession and unemployment. WHO ARE THEY to speak for us.

    Screw you Tom Hanks.
