Steve Guttenberg does not exactly seem to be on Hollywood's current A-List of celebrities. Not unless Mojave Phone Booth and Single Santa Seeks Mrs. Claus were more significant than I know. But he came out with some criticism of President Obama - and voila! it's the top story on Fox Nation, with the blaring headline,'POLICE ACADEMY' Star Rips Obama. Even though Guttenberg also says he loves Obama.
Fox Nation got its post from an interview Guttenberg did with CreditCards.com. Most of the interview is about his career and how he handles his finances. But near the end, Guttenberg said he has lost faith in our financial system. When asked if he thinks Washington can "rein in misbehavior," Guttenberg replied:
It's hard to believe in the presidency anymore. I voted for Obama, I love Obama, but I don't want to see Obama on "The View," I don't want to see him playing Frisbee, I don't want to know that it's $40,000 a plate at George Clooney's house, and I adore George Clooney. Hey man, I've got a friend of mine who's got a $7 an hour job at Dunkin Donuts and he can't get a $9 an hour job over at the country club because there are so many people in front of him. I believe that the president should be his desk all day. I don't want to see him on vacation, I don't want to see him at Martha's Vineyard, I don't want to see Mrs. Obama in Spain. No, no, I do not want to see that because everybody's struggling. These CEOs shouldn't be taking all this money. No Rolls Royces. No private planes.
