Who Would Have Guessed That Not Everyone In Hollywood Likes Obama’s Class Warfare?

The Voice In My Head

I’d like to say “I hate to say ‘I told you so’”, but I’m not sure I can in good conscience.

Comedian Jon Lovtiz doesn’t like Obama. He’s made his view very, very clear:

“This whole thing with Obama saying the rich don’t pay their taxes is f**king bulls**t. And I voted for the guy and I’m a Democrat. What a f**king a**hole.”*

“First they say … ‘You can do anything you want. Go for it.’ So then you go for it, and then you make it, and everyone’s like, ‘F**k you,’” Lovitz said. “[Obama] is the perfect example. He’s amazing. He had nothing … and the guy ends up being at Harvard. He’s the president of the United States. And now he’s like, ‘F**k me and everybody who made it like me.’”

He defended his words on Piers Morgan’s show on CNN, leading AllahPundit to ask:

Exit question: Near the end, he tells Morgan that a lot of his Hollywood pals are disenchanted with Obama. Really? He means that they’re disenchanted because O isn’t quite liberal enough, right?

Fair question. But then via Hot Air we find that Lovitz went on Bill O’Reilly’s show last night. I don’t readily see a transcript available, so let me do it myself…

O’Reilly: The reaction to you…you live in Hollywood, you know you’re in the show business world — most people there support Barack Obama, and they not only support him, they idolize him. What kind of reaction have you gotten from this?

Lovitz: Well, almost everybody agrees with me … and most of my friends are Democrats, you know I’m a Democrat, but yeah, they agree. They say, “hey, I work really hard and pay a lot of taxes,” because it’s not true. And I think it’s just a divisive way to appeal to the masses to get votes. And it’s just blatant and obvious.

    I’ll believe this disenchantment, when they can pry Clooneys lips from Obamas ass.

    Lovitz is fairly well established in Hollyweird. If he was younger or not as well known there’s no way that he would be talking badly about the Chicago Jesus and lib hero.

    But still, I’m glad to see someone talking about the BS class warfare that Obama is pulling. In the original recording you can tell Kevin Smith was uncomfortable with Lovitz saying bad things about Obama. I wonder if Lovitz would still pull the lever for Obama in the election (who am I kidding, he’s a Hollywood Democrat).

    A diversionary tactic at best. Do NOT falter! Do NOT believe it! Obama MUST be defeated! Just because JL says it, doesn’t mean that it is so…

    When I was watching the interview, I kept yelling at Lovitz to ask Morgan, “Piers you talk about THOSE 1%’ers… Just how much do YOU make every year, huh?” Morgan gets paid over $12 MILLION A YEAR, according to the internets anyway, and he’s talking about THOSE, evil 1%.

    Here’s a longer rant by Lovitz. I’m proud of him for being so vocal:

    Thanks for speaking up, Lovitz, but it only matters how you and your “disenchanted” buddies are gonna vote in November

    Lovitz can speak out all he wants to, how could Lovitz be so stupid as to vote for Obummer? Did Lovitz really think he was going to get something for nothing from Obummer?

    I saw the segment on BillO, who made an issue of Jon Lovitz showing a ‘Disrespect For The Office Of The President’.

    O’Reilly derailed the momentum of the issue of Jon Lovitz expressing his dissatisfaction in his own words, by playing the arbiter of ‘Fair&Balanced’ as usual.

    NObama2012!
