    "I think he's rolled over to Wall Street completely. The economy has huge problems. We still have all these banks that are too big to fail. They're bigger and making more money than ever. Unemployment at 10 per cent? It's terrible."

    Damon

    "President Obama has certainly done more than any other president to advance clean energy, yet he never seemed to roll up his sleeves, bring lawmakers to the table and work to rally the American public behind it."

    Redford

    "How is Obama's approach to Sudan an evolution of justice? And when the administration says it intends to work to 'improve the lives of the people of Darfur', I would like to know what that means, besides the point that their lives could hardly get worse."

    Jolie

    "While I am confident that Obama never intended to offend anyone [with a joke about the Special Olympics], the response his comments have caused... demonstrates the need to continue to educate the non-disabled community."

    Shriver

    "Before this [Gulf of Mexico] catastrophe, our President was in favour of offshore drilling. And when this thing happened, he backtracked real quick."

    The only person on that list that I have any interest in listening to is Angelina. And, not because of her politics :D

    There are some rational conservatives in Hollywood but they tend to keep a low profile because the Hollywood liberals try not to give work to outspoken conservatives.

    Stupid, outspoken, liberal actors like Penn, Redford and several others are on my "never watch their movies" list.
