Alec Baldwin: Obama can't spend because of the financial crisis

Ethel C. Fenig
Actors often sound brilliant because they are spouting memorized words from the mind of another. But when they have no prop, no script and speak on their own well...their hollowness is visible for all. And one of the most hollow is Alec Baldwin.

In Washington DC to lobby for continued funding for the National Endowment for the Arts--hey, he's wealthy enough to support it himself if he wanted--Baldwin enlightened  the world on President Barack Obama (D).


CNSNews.com asked Baldwin if President Obama has lived up to his expectations."Well, I mean, I think so because I think that when you come into office and you want to put your mark on things -- this is just my opinion, when you want to put your mark on things, you want to be able to spend. And what's crippled Obama's administration, as far as I'm concerned, is the financial crisis and it's prevented him from doing any new spending," said Baldwin, who publicly supported Obama in the 2008 Presidential election.

"He's not able - if the country was as flush as it was under Bill Clinton and he had money -- these things cost money -- he could have made more of a mark," said Baldwin. "I think right now he's had to do a lot of counter-punching; a lot of back peddling. He inherited this crisis from Bush and Paulson. He had to extend the TARP. I think it's been very difficult for him to spend his whole first term trying to, you know, correct our course financially. I think a second term of Obama, we'll see a lot more of what we want to see from him."

Alec, without a script you, not your daughter, are a "thoughtless little pig."
