    Actress Deemed 'Racist' for Hating Obama

    PoliticsPrintShare - Actress Angie Harmon dislikes the way President Barack Obama is running the country, calling him more "inexperienced" than Sarah Palin. While some are calling her racist, Harmon says ethnicity has nothing to do with it.
    "If I have anything to say against Obama it's not because I'm a racist, it's because I don't like what he's doing as President and anybody should be able to feel that way, but what I find now is that if you say anything against him you're called a racist," Harmon told Pop Tarts.

    LOS ANGELES, CA - MARCH 26: Actress Angie Harmon arrives at the launch party for LATISSE on March 26, 2009 in Los Angeles, California.

    "But it has nothing to do with it, I don't care what color he is. I'm just not crazy about what he's doing and I heard all about this, and he's gonna do that and change and change, so okay ... I'm still dressing for a recession over here buddy and we've got unemployment at an all-time high and that was his number one thing and that's the thing I really don't appreciate. If I'm going to disagree with my President, that doesn't make me a racist. If I was to disagree with W, that doesn't make me racist. It has nothing to do with it, it is ridiculous," Harmon said.
    Harmon is still rooting for Republican John McCain. "I do think McCain would have done a better job, only because I think he has more experience. I also think if W or John McCain or Reagan would have gone and done a talk show, the backlash would have been so huge and in his face, and 'What is our president doing? How unclassy!'
    But Obama does it and no one says anything," Harmon said.
    Harmon even thinks Sarah Palin would have done a better job running the country than Obama. "I admire any kind of woman like her. My whole motto is to know what I stand for and know what I don't stand for and have the courage to live my life accordingly and she does exactly that. The fact that this woman has made the decisions she's made and literally lived her life according to that and takes heat for it is absolutely disgusting to me," she added.
    "I really think they're afraid of her and her morals, ethics and values and the fact that she hangs on them. Is she the most experienced person in the world? But she was running to be the Vice President, so we then put the most inexperienced person as the President. That didn't make any sense to me," Harmon said.

    I was scanning thru the thread titles... this one caught my eyeball. Missing a couple of letters that I initially thought were there when i visually scanned the titles....but upon closer examination there was no "ed" in the sentence afterall... I thought for a second there that the "Mods" had missed one and i'd better check it out QUICK before it disappears.... :D
