Actor Robert De Niro: Obama will do ' better in the next four years'
The Hill ^ | 5/4/12 | Geneva Sands

Posted on 05/05/2012 11:11:37 AM PDT by ColdOne

"It's very easy to criticize people. I think he's done a good job. He's done other things that maybe he should have been a little stronger about, people will complain. But it's not easy to be President of the United States," said De Niro on NBC's "Press Pass" with David Gregory on Friday.

"I give him credit and I hope he does ... I know he'll do better in the next four years, when he won't have to worry whether he's gonna be elected or not," De Niro continued.

I wonder if De Niro pays his taxes? Another useless tool for the left.

“””I give him credit and I hope he does ... I know he’ll do better in the next four years, when he won’t have to worry whether he’s gonna be elected or not,” De Niro continued””

Better for whom, genius?

There’s as much chance of that happening as De Niro making a good movie in the next 4 years.

Now, why on earth do you suppose DeNiro would rally around a pResident that's done nothing positive for his Country?..Could there be another reason???.

I hope he does better too. I hope that in the next 4 years, after he has been defeated in November, that he becomes insanely rich, moves to his own island (a la Marlon Brando) and leaves us all alone.

Robert de Niro can go stay with him as a long term house guest, as far as I’m concerned. It will be a real California Hotel, where the guest check in, but cannot check out. Let them wallow in their own decadence.

Robert DeNiro is a disgrace to us Italians. Great actor, once, long ago!!! Now....a pure dummy who has lost both his acting skills and brains. Mr. DeNero is either smoking reefer or drinking too much kool-aid!!!

Unless they’re up on the screen, actors have nothing to say worth listening to. De Niro was a helluva actor in Godfather II, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and Goodfellas. But those were all a long time ago.

I’ve seen DeNiro in real life. Like most actors he’s much smaller and more delicate than he appears onscreen.

What makes a good actor?

A good actor is a human being with no mind, personality or life experience of their own just an empty shell, a hollow vessel, an inanimate tool.
This makes it possible for script writers & directors to pour an imaginary, fictitious character into them and get convincing results.
After filming they can pull the plug and drain the imaginary character out leaving the empty shell.

Robert DeNiro is a good actor.

De Niro's only chance to get the Presidential Medal of Freedom for (cultural) service to the country is if Il Duce Obamalini is re-elected. He sure won't get one from Romney.

After all, if entertainer Bob Hope can receive the Medal, why not him.

Plus, Obama probably knows he'll get kneecapped if he doesn't recognize De Ziro's many sacrifices and contributions to society.

DeNiro is the same brain dead moron that stated “When I get to heaven God is gonna have to answer to me”.
Nothing more need be said, his height, in inches, is not exceeded by his IQ.
Go away, Bobbie, you have no sense, credibility or judgment. You are what happens when “actors” try to comment on politics or the socialism you don’t really understand.
Go to your room, now!

Like my brother says, he’s the Paul McCartney of Hollywood. Did great groundbreaking stuff 30 - 40 years ago but everthing he’s does since is pure shiet. Yet people keep kissing his arse. Well he did do Goodfellas in 1990 but that was nothing really groundbreaking, same old De Niro with his mugging and tough guy act. That entire movie was taken word for word exactly from Nicholas Pugglesi book (if that’s how you spell his name)...I read it years ago and it was like watching the movie in book form, a complete waste, nothing new.

LOL I saw him too years ago in Greenwich village in New York city. A friend of mine pointed him out and I was like noooo way, he’s too small. But it was him. Same with Tom Cruise who looked like a midget in person. With Cruise I remember thinking “How the hell did this little guy get all these roles?” The only movie star I saw who looked just like they do on screen was Bruce Willis although he appeared thinner.

Hopefully, the following phone conversation will take place on election night:

Robert DeNiro: Who's this?

Vinnie: This is Vinnie.

DeNiro: Vinnie, what happened?

Vinnie: Well we-...

DeNiro: You get it straightened out?

Vinnie: No, we had a problem... and uh, we tried to do everything we could.

DeNiro: What d'you mean?

Vinnie: Well, you what I mean. He didn't get reelected, and we couldn't do nothing about it. That's it.

DeNiro: What d'you mean? What d'you mean? Uh...

Vinnie: He's out. He's been voted out of office.

Vinnie: And that's it.

DeNiro: [smashing telephone] F***. Can't f*****' believe that,...

David Gregory: What happened?

DeNiro: They voted him out. They f*****' voted him out!

He’s an ACTOR for God’s sakes. He lives in a fantasy world in LaLa land. Any one who would seriously go to an actor with no other credentials (Regan HAD the credentials) for political advice deserves what he gets (i.e., Obama)

It’s good that this senile old fart is at the end of career because with his OBozo support so obvious, DeNiro is at the end of his career - in my opinion.

Sycophantic actors are introduced as supporting Obama to deflect the attention away from Obama's pathetic record. it's part of the liberal playbook. People generally like actors thus make a sympathetic connection to Obama through the actors.

There is also a financial incentive here. Hollywood actors who are in the twilight of their careers or have seen failure at the box office make a desperate effort to be relevant and competitive and they know who butters their bread in hollyweird. Adhering to liberal dogma will get you invited to the right parties, connect with the right producers, participate in lucrative activities that will bring them much needed exposure and financial rewards. I don't believe that actors are ideological in the pure sense of the term. There are those that are, Matt Damon, Alec Baldwin, George Clooney come to mind. But the vast majority simply do not have the intellectual heft or the necessary intellectual framework to be ideologically driven, they simply follow the hollywood zeitgeist in the hopes that they are rewarded hence they adopt liberal viewpoints. They may simply be acting the part as liberals to achieve their goals.

Deniro sadly has left the station a long time ago.
