*Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, even low-key actors like Matt Damon. The Hollywood star criticized the president for his lack of leadership and slacking on his promises.
In 2008, Damon joined the trend and campaigned hard for Obama, but he’s not seeing any follow-through. In fact he feels let down.
“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 percent? It’s terrible… They had a chance that they don’t have any more to stand up for things. They’ve probably squandered that at this point. They’ll probably just make whatever deals they can to try and get elected again.”
He added that the president’s lack of handling the education situation in the U.S. is a noted failure as well on Obama’s part.
