  • A Mighty guy

    I am impressed by Ben Affleck’s involvement in good causes. Ben’s good deeds make him more attractive and interesting. I hope Anngelina h Joolie is watching.

  • left whackos

    #3 don’t worry after 4 yrs of Barrack/Pelosi/Reid, we won;t ever have to worry about the Left getting in power again…they are crooked, liars and now have all the power they so wanted…4 yrs…watch this nation after they are thrown out and they will be!

  • h.

    Oh, please.

    Way to go, Benji. It’s a good man that supports so many causes just because it’s the right thing.

  • Event professional

    This is a very misleading article. I was at this event, in fact I worked backstage. While Ben Affleck was at the event and did indeed present an award, it was not to Hillary Clinton. In fact, Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison along with 13 women from around the world, presented Secretary Clinton with her award.

  • Pauli

    Congratulations to our Secretary of State Hillary Clinton!!!

  • mimi

    Excuse me but what is Ben affleck doing there, he definitely is no role model. He is the person who loves “strippers” and when things don’t go right in his relationship he blames the women for all his ills. Gwen Paltrow said she had a torturous relationship with a knuckle head. He is gross. Smart but gross.

  • mr. d

    I love Ben Asslick. He is a talented actor, devouted family man and isn’t afraid to voice his opinions. He really is passionate about politics and is quite astute, I might add. He is articulate, and is more than just a pretty face.

    Who knew that when the liberals and clueless independents voted for this administration that every two bit celebrity would be hanging out at the WhiteHouse or Congress or be giving them awards, no wonder America has gotten perceptibility worst in the last couple of months, since the day Obama got elected the Dow went from 11, 000 to 7,300 touching lows of 6,000, that’s Americans losing over 4 trillion dollars of wealth, unemployment went from 6.4 to 8.1 percent that a jump of over 3 million people losing their jobs, and in a couple of months Obama has on spending plans and stimulus spent over 1.6 trillion dollars and even though Obama complained about Bush adding 2.8 trillion dollars to the debt in 8 years, the CBO Congressional Budget Office (which democrats control) said today that Obama’s budget will add 9.7 trillion dollars to the debt in the same amount of time, but hey at least Washington now looks like Hollywood with all the celebrities handing around, one more place for them to stick up.

    Huh? Do you even know how much Angelina Jolie’s involved in her humanitarian work? Do you research!!!

  • caca

    he has a movie to promote.

  • big ass

    that hillary clinton and her goverment should stop supporting israel and give the palestinians their rights then the terrorism will end and the world will leave in peace

  • dodo

    Ben is a big fat joke. He is a has been who is trying so hard to stay relevant. He cannot act and his directing is so so. Now he’s doing Africa and is given awards to women. He doesn’t respect women how dare him.

  • agree

    #13 I a agree, how can anyone really compare Ben to Angie, Ben just jumped on the band wagon because he wants the same kind of publicity that Brad and Angie get. He’s all about publicity as long as it’s positive for him he will smile for the cameras. Angie is his inspiration lmao..he wants what angie and brad have for him and his troll wife .

  • Ivelisse^^^

    Hell no, Ben is 1000X smarter than Brad & Angie Just listen to him on Bill Maher. Even if you are right wing you have to admit he is the smartest person on Politics only on the left rather than Rush Limbaugh on the right. If Rush Limbaugh is running the right wing party (and he is) Ben could run the Democrats when THEY get out of power. And they will. Its back and forth, back and forth, whoever you vote in you get sick of and vote out.

  • Hypocrite

    Caca, I agree with you.

  • minniepoo

    Oh please, Ben is not that smart, he is just up to date on what’s going on in politics just like a whole lotta people.
