Matt Damon - Matt Damon Not Happy With U.s. President Barack Obama's Job
Matt Damon is reconsidering voting for President Barack Obama in the upcoming U.S. election, because the actor is "disappointed" with the way the man he helped put in office four years ago is handling the country's financial crisis.
America has been struggling with a sluggish economy in recent years, prompting hundreds of people across the nation to speak out in protest of failing banks, corporate greed and high unemployment during the Occupy Wall Street movement last year (11).
Now The Departed star, who previously backed Democrat Obama's 2008 bid for the White House, has taken aim at the politician before heading to the polls in November (12), insisting he has failed to address the money problems at hand.
During an appearance at San Diego, California's fan convention Comic-Con earlier this month (Jul12), he said, "I think Obama is the clear choice. But I've said before I'm really disappointed in him, and I am, particularly because of the banking stuff...
"I don't think the Republicans or the Democrats really understand the level of anger at the sense of unfairness that the majority of people in the country feel - the sense that we don't have a country anymore when people don't feel like they have a chance... If people feel like the deck is stacked against them, then they stop playing by the rules. Because why play by the rules?"
Obama will be fighting to return to the White House for another term in November (12) against Republican Mitt Romney.
