He was simply asked a question - give him a freaking break! He even admitted that voters aren't likely to care what movie stars think. The Neocons are so hateful lol.

Some actors are worth seeing. Some actors are worth listening to. Affleck isn't in that category.

I've been questioning Affleck's celebrity for a long time now. Why do we continue to celebrate no-talent boobs?

The last sentence says it all. He's entitled to his opinion, but pairing Obama with shallow celebrities to highlight his superficial qualifications should resonate with a lot of voters.

Ben Affleck is a human being and a U.S. Citizen in addition to being an activist. Where is the rule that says if you are an actor or performer you cannot be involved in Politics???? Arnold is Governor of Ca. Ronald Reagan was an Actor first. Statements such as yours show what an extremely narrow minded view you have and it also shows your lack of any sort of intelligence.

I am a big fan of country music and a HUGE Toby Keith fan. However, I am not going to buy any more merchandise of Toby' more music, no t-shirts, no more of those $75 concert tickets for me or my daughters. I work hard for my money and I don't want my money to go towards furthering his career if he believes in Obama's policies of socialism. Therefore, if you use your pocketbook, you can make a difference. Celebrities are what we make them, and we make them rich.

Well, seeing as how Ben Affleck completed his high school education, I guess we should all care about his "educated" opinion. Heck, why don't we all go down to a local fast food joint and ask any 30-something employee there who has a high school diploma their opinion. Same education, right?

Just because someone's rich doesn't make their opinion more weighty.

Why are the Republicans and John McCain afraid to release Palin's medical records ?
