Tom Hanks Is the Only Liberal Ecstatic About President Obama

While Al Gore gripes about President Obama's lack of leadership on climate change, Jon Stewart claims that he hasn't "live[d] up to his promises," and progressives beg him to stop pussyfooting around with gay marriage, Tom Hanks, at least, seems to have no complaints.

Hanks, a longtime Democrat, went on to say that the president has not only lived up to his expectations but “expanded” them.

Said Hanks, “If you would have told me a few years ago that ‘don't ask, don't tell’ would be repealed and about a billion jobs at General Motors and Chrysler would have been saved because the president was smart enough and strong enough and bold enough to do so, I would have said, 'Wow. That's a good president, I think I'll vote for him again.'”

In Hanks's defense, a billion is a lot of jobs.
