Just when you thought Morgan Freeman was more than just a good actor, he proves us wrong once again. From CNN last week:
PIERS MORGAN, HOST: Has Obama helped the process of eradicating racism, or has it in a strange way made it worse.
MORGAN FREEMAN: Made it worse. Made it worse. Look at, look, the Tea Partiers, who are controlling the Republican Party, stated, and what’s this guy’s name, Mitch O’Connell. ....Their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term. What’s, what does that, what underlines that? “Screw the country. We’re going to whatever we do to get this black man, we can, we’re going to do whatever we can to get this black man outta here.”
Race has NOTHING to do with it, Mr. Freeman. His failure as President is directly tied to his job performance and has ZERO to do with the color of his skin. In case you didn't notice conservatives weren't real pleased with Bill Clinton either. Remember? Hey Morgan, why don't you vote for black candidate Herman Cain in 2012, unless of course you're racist. He's infinitely more intelligent than Obama and I'd vote for him in a heartbeat. Gee, I guess that means I'm not racist, huh.
Loved you in Shawshank Redemption, by the way.
