Hustler publisher Larry Flynt flips on earlier criticisms, plans to vote for Obama

Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt, who once ran for governor of California with the slogan “the smut peddler who cares,” told The Daily Caller that he will vote to re-elect President Barack Obama in November.

Flynt has been a longtime Obama skeptic. In December 2010 he penned an open letter to the president in The Daily Beast titled “President Obama: You Are Toast.”

“I was delighted when you were elected,” he wrote then. “Now, like many other Americans, all I see is an ineffectual wimp. If you want a second term in office, you must win back the respect of the American people. From my vantage point it’s hard to see how you can do that.”

In a subsequent April 2011 letter to Obama, he wrote, “As it stands, you can no longer count on any of the groups that supported your Presidential bid last time around.”

But despite his disappointment with Obama on civil liberties issues, on ending foreign wars, on health care reform and on extending the Bush-era tax cuts, Larry Flynt is prepared to change his mind.

“I think Romney will win,” Flynt told TheDC, before hastily correcting himself. “Wait — I mean I think Obama will win, and I’m going to vote for him.”

Asked if he was dissatisfied with Obama’s performance as president, Flynt said Obama “has fallen far short in many ways,” mentioning the extension of the Patriot Act and “the way he’s dealt with Congress.”

But Flynt said it’s important “to consider the lesser of two evils.”

“I don’t think anyone would prefer Romney,” he explained.

Referring to Romney’s 2007 advocacy for porn-blocking software on all new computers, Flynt said the presumptive GOP nominee is “a typical politician: can’t keep the streets clean, but wants to keep our minds clear.”

Flynt added that Romney’s forthcoming commencement address at Liberty University — a school founded by Rev. Jerry Falwell, against whom Flynt won a landmark Supreme Court case on free speech — showed that the former Massachusetts governor “will pander to anyone.”

Larry Flynt is as tired and worn-out looking as those hyper-bleached skanks standing next to him. Like Heffner, he's a relic of porn days gone by. A pathetic picture. Quite naturally like other perverts, he's an Obama fan.

The very fact that a dedicate degenerate finds Obama worthy of his vote is indeed news.

Wonder no longer. Read what I said above.

Think about it, Russ. The very fact that an endorsement from a wasted pornographer who intends to vote for the evil phony ensconsed in the White Hut is good publicity for the opponent.

It’s as though satan has endorsed Flynt.

“Gee Wally I don’t think that is going to help Mr. Obama do you?”
“No Beav, but I think this endorsement will end up in Christian conservative fund raising letters.”

You were always going to vote for him, Larry. You just thought you could make Obama listen to you if you withheld your coveted endorsement. Take it and like it, Larry boy. Take it and like it.

Porn dealers have made a fortune with the easing of morals during Obama’s term.

Of course he supports his pocketbook, and Obama.

He realized that Mitt’s father and grandfather were NOT polygamist’s. The acorn is closer to the tree with Obama so he decided to go that way.

Endorsements are as newsworthy as croaking frogs, unless you have no mind of your own.

Unfortunately, yes, thanks to a sniper who should have spent more time practicing at the range.

Flynt said it’s important “to consider the lesser of two evils.”

The leaser of two evils comment from Flynt is as about as crazy a statement as I have heard.

For them I would recommend wearing a Tychem LV 640 Chemical Suit (Level A) with internal oxygen, with a three stage decontamination afterwards of activated charcoal, chlorine dioxide, and carbolic acid. Then incinerate the suit after having it irradiated.

Assuming you’re had all your shots.

"Can Charles Manson vote?"

I don't know, but serial guy John Wayne Gacy of Chicago is endorsing the Messiah.

I know Gacy is deader than a door nail, but in Chicago that doesn't make any difference.
