Brad Pitt Bikes With Barack Obama

BARACK BIKER

A solo Brad Pitt throws on a fedora, hops on his bicycle and goes for a ride down the street in New Orleans, Louisiana on Monday.

The 44-year-old actor carried around a sketch notebook with a drawing of Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama on the cover. “08″ was also in the corner of Barack‘s picture, obviously signifying the year of Barack‘s presidential race, 2008.

Looks like we now know who Brad is voting for come election time!

Back in August, Angelina Jolie‘s presidential pick was undecided.

10+ pictures inside of Barack biker Brad Pitt

    That Brad carries a pics of Barrack does not mean he’s voting for him. He might be reading up on him.

    Don’t be silly, it is less than a month before the election. Brad knows who is supports, and it is Obama. Brad has been at fund raisers for Obama many times.

    You know, once again – I have to wonder at this. Now, instead of Changeling, and the premiere we can get endless political discussions about what candidate the family is voting for. Stupid.

    Brad’s looking mighty fine. Looks like he got some sleep. He looks so fresh. No matter what people think, they are so low key, you see them alot when they have press to do for movies, other than that, they just keep it on the down low.

    Laurel Says:

    I don’t think it was a leaflet he was handed… it looks like it was stuck on there. That is even more unsubtle than if he’d directly told a reporter he would be voting for Obama! Didn’t realise Pitt was into flirting with the photographers like this. It’s a bit like a few weeks back when Halle Berry had that personality disorders book on display.

    Are you sure Brad declared for Obama and attended fundraisers for him? I’m 99% likely to vote for Obama, but I subscribe to Yahoo and Google alerts and I didn’t read anything like that. Sometimes we don’t read things carefullu or headlines/articles are misleading.

  43. 43
    Dude Says:

    Brad has wanted to stump a little more publicly for the Democratic leader but his hopes were quickly dashed this time last year as the campaign felt Brad’s headline-making presence would be more of a liability than an asset.

    Nonetheless, Brad continues to quietly support Barack. His distant cousin. In more ways than one.

    That was a tabliod story. Brad has never publicly stated were he stands. Obama in responsej to the story which spread like wild fire through the interenet said they have never spoken to Brad but would gladly accept any help offered. Yes indeed they asked Obama himself about a tabloid story.

    Ligaya Says:

    Again, where did Angelina say she liked Biden and she’d vote for him? I haven’t seen that in any of the alerts I’ve read. It’d be huge news if either Brad or Angelina officially announced or even casually said who they’re voting for in the coming election. There’s no way anyone would miss it because it’d be all over the media everywhere. IN CAPS and bold letters.

    Remember months ago when there was a rumor – to embarass them – that the JPs had offered their support to Obama but were rejected? Both the Obama campaign and the JPs said that never happened. Then remember the rumors that both the Obama and McCain campaigns wanted their endorsement? I don’t know if that was true or more media speculation.

    ALSO, my husband (who’s studied genetics and anthropology) said that since all humans came from the first of our species, everybody pretty much carries some of everybody else’s DNA. So I could be the umpteenth cousin several times removed of Queen Elizabeth I and the Last Empress of China. If I remember right that article that said Brad and Barack were (very distantly) related, said they were related to a lot of other interesting people. And a lot of other current famous people, Hillary Clinton being one, were related to other interesting people too. That stuff is fun, but I don’t know how reliable or significant.

    for ligaya

    A while ago there were rumours that you were thinking of working for John McCain’s campaign. Is that still true?
    To be honest, I still haven’t decided who to vote for. Like everyone I hope to see something really incredible happen to this county, I am worried about how we will emerge from this economic crisis, I ask myself if the parties will unite to make things work. I could throw stones and say bad things, but I don’t know what we could gain out of that. There are many things about Joe Biden which I very much like, I was very happy to hear him speak so well during the debate, he is a very intelligent man but I listen to everyone and I think that’s important to do.

    and for all those wondering.. will he or wont he.. i.e. vote for obama.. he can choose to do so you know.. its his choice. and like Angie said yesterday she is doing her research.. so everyone, it wont make you a lesser fan if he votes for a candidate you dont support.. its ok.. really.

    As for Angelina liking Joe Biden, it doesn’t surprise me since he has been a long time member and now the chairman of the Senate Foreign Affairs committee, and she is a UNHCR ambassador for refugees. I am sure she has met him and has gotten help from him one way or another. Same thing with Senator Richard Lugar. I am also sure if you asked her, she would say that she likes him too and finds him very intelligent and knowledgeable.

    Damn he looks good. I love that in NOLA he is able to have a normal life. The people there try to leave them alone.. They are able to shop and even take the kids out. I know now why he and Angie have a hard time making LA their home base. I was wondering if anyone heard about when they were going to leave to go back to Berlin. Well no one really heard about when they arrived, so they may be able to leave without much notice. Is Angie doing any more interviews. Also when is the Big Changeling Premier… or was that it in New York. I thought they would have something else before the movie was released.

    Please post if you know…Thanks

    nobama Says:

    Democrats are dumb enough to believe Obama’s tax increase to corporates will not affect regular people. In current economic situation, many corporates are already struggling. If increase tax, some may bankrupt, some may lay off employees in order to survive, some may move out of US. The unemployment rate will be higher. If people lose their jobs, Obama’s tax cut for them is pointless. Obama’s economic policy will make American economy even worse. McCain/Palin 2008.

    tabitha Says:

    Angelina is staying nuetral to the press. Personally , I think since was asked about Mc Cain she said made a point of saying she is still undecided and decided to say nice things about Biden. When she was asked by a reporter a few months ago that assummed she was a democrat, she said she was an independent and she had not made up her mind . She also commented when asked about Clint ‘s political views. I don’t remember the exact phrase, but she did infer that she more similar views with Clint than not.

    Angelina has alluded that her and Brad do differ on some things politically. I think Brad is definately a devout liberal. I think Angelina is more to the center than Brad. I hope we never find out who she votes for. I think because of her UN and charity work that is best. I also do believe that she has influenced Brad because he is not openly supporting candidates like he once did. He is far more subtle.

    I could care less who the both vote for. It won’t change my respect for them and my vote for Mc Cain.

    She knows Joe Biden you idiot (89). Obama picking him, I’m certain impressed her. That aside, I have no doubt AJ knows damn well who she will be voting for. Besides you f*cktards need to wake up – Angelina knows she’s a lightening rod. Her ‘endorsement,’ for Obama for example, wouldn’t do jacksh*t but feed her own ego, and probably mobilize the walmart tabloid ninnies, fanistons and minivans to vote for McCain. THAT is why she won’t be doing it. She’s smart. This is not a egomaniac, nor is this a stupid woman.

    Unlike MOST uneducated tools in Hollywood (see Roseann, see Madonna, see anyone else whom people have strong emotions for one way or the other), she knows ‘endorsing’ is a two way street.

    If she were to say she was voting one way or the other, there would be a massive wave of criticism (see Madonna’s concert footage ‘demonizing’ McCain, that Obama quickly b*tchsmacked her about – and essentially said, shut your fool asss up Madge!). Angelina chooses to stay neutral in the press, and yet says very important things – re listening to candidates, deciding what issues are important to you, unifying the country, etc.)

    SOME people are just too damn stupid to even read thru the lines, and see what she’s doing. HELLO??? She is aware of the power of celebrity, she is more than aware of her own power and how some view her (Angelina spoke of media ‘attacking’ her two years ago — she’s not fooled by the media attention that says popularity equates to people loving you and following you into the fire…that exists for no one…hell look at Oprah’s backlash!)…AJ is also aware of, and savvy about the polictical climate – when she talks, people will listen – and not always in a good way. (See her comments on her children that have been twisted and exploited and shamefully made hurtful.)

    She doesn’t owe anyone a gd thing about her vote. It speaks to her power as a public figure that people are desperate to know, and ‘make her talk.’ Why do some people confuse philanthropy, and charitable activisim with campaign stumping?? People admiring Angelina’s bravery, her travels for the UN, her lobbying to get bills passed for refugees and refugee minors – her philanthropy…are one thing, but coming out and saying, ‘Hey dumb Americans, you need to vote this way, because I the great Angelina is voting this way,’ is NOT HER STYLE. She doesn’t play that.

    That’s why that arrogant conceited stupid asss Leo D. ‘Don’t Vote,’ video is being universally panned by teh entire political spectrum – you have all these idiots…that the public KNOWS are idiots….condescending to other Americans on voting…when you know gd well, the bottled tap water spokesperson, chain-smoking cancer telethon participant, Maniston missed more than her share of elections and just recently called the Presidential election a ‘catfight.’ Yet you’re going to come at me with your sarcasm and cheese, and dumb A & B list celeb roundup ‘lecture.’

    Give me a break – I’m a Democrat and that sh*t horrified me.

    Brad and Angelina would have swallowed broken glass before they did some sh*t like that. LOLOL

    Angelina is staying nuetral to the press. Personally , I think since was asked about Mc Cain she said made a point of saying she is still undecided and decided to say nice things about Biden. When she was asked by a reporter a few months ago that assummed she was a democrat, she said she was an independent and she had not made up her mind . She also commented when asked about Clint ’s political views. I don’t remember the exact phrase, but she did infer that she more similar views with Clint than not.

    Angelina has alluded that her and Brad do differ on some things politically. I think Brad is definately a devout liberal. I think Angelina is more to the center than Brad. I hope we never find out who she votes for. I think because of her UN and charity work that is best. I also do believe that she has influenced Brad because he is not openly supporting candidates like he once did. He is far more subtle.

    I could care less who the both vote for. It won’t change my respect for them and my vote for Mc Cain.

    @ Last one @ 10/06/2008 at 3:44 pm: Thanks, I’ll check the last thread. I’m not a regular visitor to JJ and I stopped reading the threads after the first couple of times I did (allergic to trolls), and I don’t remember ever posting on JJ , so I probably missed something. Actually, I’m only reading today because someone on Pittwatch posted that some Changeling premiere eyewitness stories were posted here.

    @ And thanks to the one who posted the link to chictoday. Very interesting article – about 1/3 to ½ of that wasn’t reported in anything I read from my Yahoo/Google alerts, about 1/3 was more or less the same with some details different, and the rest the same.

    I think Angelina was undeclared, not undecided. She’s being publicly neutral, like the UN and Bono. IMO, not being partisan in this election is a choice she has the right to make. It’s also very wise because I think she’ll be more effective with her advocacy work. One of the earliest things I read about Angelina was how respected she was on Capitol Hill – not only for her knowledge and experience, but also for being non-partisan. And Angelina was also right to ask both candidates for their positions on the issues most important to her. For one thing, neither had said anything about those issues. For another, it’s not wise to assume things – especially of politicians running for President of the U.S. Celebrity endorsements are a tricky thing, they can work against as well as for a candidate, e.g. Susan Sarandon (who I think is wonderful). And a study said over 70% of voters said celebrity endorsements wouldn’t have any effect on their vote.

She has never been conservative.

    Not true. Brad has never openly come out in support of Obama. No doubt very mindful of his and Angelina’s humanitarian work.

    Angelina has just said that she is UNDECIDED as yet, though she liked Joe Biden’s views during the VP debate.

    Much as I would like Obama/Biden to win the ticket, I don’t think it is right to put words and actions into the mouth of others and create a fiction on something as important as this.

    Angelina today is different from Angelina years way back. She is very intelligent woman. She knows it’s best for her humanitarian work, if she doesn’t say who she is supporting in public. She today lives above a bunch of stupid movie stars in Hollywood, their brains as small as peanuts, but they have very big stinking mouths. It doesn’t matter whoever Angelina votes for in this election, It’s her choice and her reason. The key I’m trying to say is using your brain when you go to vote and don’t be stupid like many movie stars in Hollywood.

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Jenny your sort of lazy ignorance is terrifying.

    Obama will raise taxes for those earning more than 250K per annum but will reduce taxes for those earning less than that.

    So, are you saying that those earning less than 250K per annum are lazy? Less than 5% of the American working population earn more than 250K per annum. So 95% of the American population is lazy?

    What about the secretaries and back room staff who didn’t get those fat bonusses but will end up being unemployed because of the economic crisis? Have they been lazy? What about the hard working builder who will be out of a job now for the next 3 years until the housing slack gets taken up? Was he lazy?

    It’s the middle class that do all the heavy lifting in the American economy. The median income in America is approximately 50K. They are the ones who go to work each day, put their children in day care, come home and cook and clean. Don’t they deserve a tax break?

    And lets not talk about health care. obama is going to be able to make sure more American’s get healthcare. mccain wants to give tax credits so more americans can buy healthcare whilst taking away the tax deductions from companies. But what if you don’t earn enough to get all the tax credits? Then what??What if you are out of a job and won’t pay taxes this year or next year? Then what is the use of a tax credit?

    You don’t have to believe me about tax breaks. Here is a link to an independant study group:

    From the bipartisan http://www.taxpolicycenter.org/publications/url.cfm?ID=411749

    The two candidates’ tax plans would have sharply different distributional effects.

    Senator McCain’s tax cuts would primarily benefit those with very high incomes, almost all of whom would receive large tax cuts that would, on average, raise their after-tax incomes by more than twice the average for all households. Many fewer households at the bottom of the income distribution would get tax cuts and those tax cuts would be small as a share of after-tax income.

    In marked contrast, Senator Obama offers much larger tax breaks to low- and middle-income taxpayers and would increase taxes on high-income taxpayers. The largest tax cuts, as a share of income, would go to those at the bottom of the income distribution, while taxpayers with the highest income would see their taxes rise significantly.

    The impact of the tax code on economic activity under each candidate’s policies would differ in several important ways.

    Under Senator McCain’s proposed policies, the top marginal rates (35 percent on individual income and 25 percent on corporate income) would be significantly lower than under Senator Obama’s plan (39.6 and 35 percent, respectively). McCain’s reduced individual and corporate rates could improve economic efficiency and increase domestic investment, but the larger future deficits would reduce and might completely negate any positive effect.

    In contrast, Senator Obama’s proposed new tax credits could encourage desirable behavior, particularly if the childless EITC and payroll tax rebate encourage additional labor supply among childless low-income individuals. However, he would also direct new subsidies at an already favored group-seniors -and an already favored activity-homeownership-which could probably be better directed elsewhere.

    Anyone who is a citizen of these United States of America has a right to proclaim from the rooftops if he/she wants “whether they are a celebrity or not” the person they’ve chosen to support politically. If some are so easily influenced by others simply because that person is a celebrity, it’s not the celebrity’s fault that the non-celeb’s is so incapable of forming an independent thought.

    What’s disgusting is your disrespect of what makes America great. When you suggest a group shouldn’t be free in opinion simply because of class or fame, that goes against everything we stand for and fight for.
