Affleck Comments on Politics

Posted by Bobby on May 31, 2007

The following is a transcript of Ben Affleck’s response to a question Bill Maher asked him on his show. The question was “What did you think of the Democrats now caving in on this Iraq spending Bill, Mr. Affleck?”

His response (edited of course) :

These (bleep) people, you know what it is, Democrats, this is the (bleep) problem with them, because you know how much money I (bleep) give away? The Democrats live in fear of basically, you know, being called cowards, of looking soft on military, looking like (bleep) basically. We’re afraid that somebody’s going to call us a (bleep), that somebody is going to criticize us, and these people got elected basically on opposing the war, they got sent to Washington to oppose the war, they went there to make a vote on opposing the war. You’re either going to vote for or against this measure that says you have to, if you want this money, you have to give us timelines to get out of Iraq. Are you going to be for this or against it? They were afraid that if they basically sent it back to the president and said, “No, we need the timelines,” and they left for Memorial Day vacation, that when they left, they were afraid of being criticized. So rather, out of a fear of being criticized, they sacrificed their core political beliefs, and they wonder why people call them (bleep) weak.

Wow! Quite the articulate little scamp ain’t he? This is why actors should stay OUT of politics. Unless it is written on a script or on a radical Left-wing website, even they can’t make sense of their own convictions.

    These Hollywood types (liberals) all seem rather angry, don’t they? And they accuse us (conservatives) of being closed minded.
