The We Bought A Zoo actor has been putting his foot in his mouth quite a bit late, first by trashing Tony Gilory, the writer of the Bourne movies, to GQ, and now by sounding off about President Obama to the new issue of Elle magazine.
"I've talked to a lot of people who worked for Obama at the grassroots level. One of them said to me, 'Never again. I will never be fooled again by a politician,'" Damon told the magazine during an interview that took place not too far from the Occupy Vancouver protests.
Damon wasn't shy sharing his feelings about what he considered to be the President's lack of accomplishment. In fact, he said, he'd rather have someone who completed more tasks instead of having the current administration stick around for a second term--except he said it a bit more colorfully.
"You know, a one-term president with some balls who actually got stuff done would have been, in the long run of the country, much better," he said. "If the Democrats think that they didn't have a mandate--people are literally without any focus or leadership, just wandering out into the streets to yell right now because they are so pissed off. Imagine if they had a leader."
