View Full Version : Angie Harmon: I'm Not Racist Because I Disagree With Obama

Not that I'm suprised to hear Angie Harmon is conservative, but a good read nonetheless.



Angie Harmon is not afraid to come out and say she doesn’t like how President Obama is handling the job — but she’s sick of having to defend herself from being deemed a racist.

"Here's my problem with this, I'm just going to come out and say it. If I have anything to say against Obama it's not because I'm a racist, it's because I don't like what he's doing as President and anybody should be able to feel that way, but what I find now is that if you say anything against him you're called a racist," Harmon told Tarts at Thursday’s Los Angeles launch of the new eyelash-growing formula, Latisse. "But it has nothing to do with it, I don’t care what color he is. I’m just not crazy about what he's doing and I heard all about this, and he’s gonna do that and change and change, so okay … I'm still dressing for a recession over here buddy and we've got unemployment at an all-time high and that was his number one thing and that's the thing I really don't appreciate. If I'm going to disagree with my President, that doesn't make me a racist. If I was to disagree with W, that doesn't make me racist. It has nothing to do with it, it is ridiculous."

Speaking of dislikes, the starlet has also had enough of the double-standards in the media.

"I do think McCain would have done a better job, only because I think he has more experience. I also think if W or John McCain or Reagan would have gone and done a talk show, the backlash would have been so huge and in his face, and ‘What is our president doing? How unclassy!’ But Obama does it and no one says anything," Harmon said.
And in spite of the scornful opinions most of her Tinseltown counterparts have shared on Gov. Sarah Palin, Harmon remains a true fan.

"I admire any kind of woman like her. My whole motto is to know what I stand for and know what I don't stand for and have the courage to live my life accordingly and she does exactly that. The fact that this woman has made the decisions she's made and literally lived her life according to that and takes heat for it is absolutely disgusting to me," she added. "People cannot look at this woman. I really think they're afraid of her and her morals, ethics and values and the fact that she hangs on them. Is she the most experienced person in the world? But she was running to be the Vice President, so we then put the most inexperienced person as the President. That didn't make any sense to me."

However Harmon is definitely in the Hollywood minority when it comes to her criticism of Obama as other lasses at the Latisse party were quick to advocate their unequivocal support.

"The sort of criticism over the last couple of weeks is a bit unfounded, he's been in office for barely any time and I think he inherited a lot on his plate and he's doing a pretty remarkable job," quipped Mandy Moore. "I think it's cool that he went on Leno and I watched the "60 minutes" interview as well last week. The guy is just so articulate and he is so well versed in something that is so new to him and I think he has a good team around him. It sounds cliché, but he makes me feel proud to be an American."

Debra Messing also told Tarts that our new President is not only meeting her expectations, but going far beyond.

"He is thoughtful and considerate and he gets all the information before he speaks which I think is a wonderful quality for the ruler of the free world to have," she explained.

The ladies of "Entourage" certainly showed their Obama-loyalty too.

"It's not an over night process. It's going to get worse before it gets better; we're all kind of in the same boat now. Everybody's broke and everybody's struggling and he makes me feel like I know him and that I know Michelle and that they’re like us and they’re out to try to save the USA. It's just an amazing period to watch him take on these challenges and everyday in the news to hear about AIG or possibly global currency changing, it's incredible. He's facing big challenges and he's got a lot of support and I'm just praying things get better," Debi Mazar said, while co-star Perrey Reeves added that Obama is a "wonderful leader" and she’s looking forward to his future endeavors.

If she means transforming this country into a socialist run country, then she has had her expectation met.

Apparently we can't disagree with O otherwise we are tabbed as a racist. Soon that will be labeled as hate speech and we'll all be in jail.:rolleyes:

But is she articulate in the things she knows nothing about? Apparently, that qualifies you to run the fuckin' country.

I've seen a couple of episodes of Debra Messing's shows. She has very low expectations.

I'm sure it will be said that the reason Obama fails in his presidency is because of racist...not because he, as a person, dosen't know what the heck he is doing. "The man" keeping a brother down...:rolleyes:

Did she say who called her a racist?Did you bother to read the article? If you did - you'd have the answer to your question now wouldn't you. :rolleyes:

There was no link to the original story and since, in the section quoted, Harmon never said specifically who called her a racist, I was wondering if it was mentioned in the full article. Or maybe that was the entire article.

Nice try though...

For her to bring it up like that, it had to be recent. Someone in the dressing room, prehaps...

BTW--She had a great scene in the movie Lawn Dogs. Though, I've always wondered if it was a body double.

That's GOVERNOR Sarah Palin to you. Can't even get the name right.

Yes, but she looks attractive when she delivers the lines that someone else has written for her. Apparently, that's the new standard of leadership in America.

Sara Palin ran on that very platform.
Governor Palin had more executive experience than the entire Democratic ticket, not to mention a record of actual accomplishment. Being a mayor and governor is a lot harder than being a community nuisance, "present" in the state legislature and running for president before you've even warmed your senate seat.

It's Hollywood. I'm betting that pretty much everyone she deals with on a day-to-day basis says it. It's a manifestation of the groupthink.

That was the entire article. Don't act like this shit don't happen. You're not that stupid or niave, so don't act like we are.
