ACORN might be able to make that wish a reality.
(Politico) — When President Obama jumped on the back nine of the celebrity-clogged Vineyard Golf Club course on Sunday, he ran into none other than Morgan Freeman, Oscar winner and Obama backer.
Freeman, it turns out, was as free with advice for Obama as he was for Tim Robbins in “The Shawshank Redemption.” (POLITICO was holding outside the course in the pool van, told only that Obama was playing with his usual island foursome.)
But the deeply wired Boston Globe, invaluable for Vineyard gossip, caught up with Freeman at an event later in the day.
“What I wanted to tell him is to get pissed off, get fighting mad,” the actor told the paper. “But I know he won’t because he doesn’t think it’s politically smart.”
On Obama’s chances for reelection, Freeman added, “If I could vote for him 1,000 times, I would.”
“I think he’s been horribly sandbagged, and it makes me so angry,” he said.
