Angelina Jolie thinks Pres. Obama will only get one term


So last week, Us Weekly ran an “exclusive” report based on an unnamed source’s claims that Angelina Jolie said she “hated” President Obama. Now, I didn’t believe it at the time, not because I didn’t believe the particular criticism Angelina alleged leveled at the president, but I had qualms about Angelina voicing any favorites or dislikes with regards to any politician or party. Simply because she’s never voiced her opinion before – why would she start now? And through an unnamed source, speaking to Us Weekly.

In any case, the whole “Angelina Hates Team Obama” thing wasn’t really the point of the tabloid story. The point was that Angelina and Brad are fighting forever and ever, and they’re not going to make it another week in Tabloidville, and their latest fights are about politics. Since everyone knows Brad is a big Democrat, the tabloids have cast Angelina as the fire-breathing, homewrecking, baby-stealing conservative. Something like that. Now Fox News has taken the lead away from Us Weekly, and their sources go even further, putting even harsher criticisms of Obama in Angelina’s mouth:

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie can be like their warring, married characters in “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” when it comes to presidential politics, sources tell Fox411.

“[Jolie thinks] President Obama is a great communicator but not interested in issues outside the United States,” says a Hollywood insider close to the Oscar-winning actress. “Angelina has worked very hard to get first-person accounts of what is going on in the world with her briefings from the UN, [while] Brad is a ‘Johnny Come Lately.'”

Jolie even thinks Obama will only last four years in the nation’s highest office, says the insider, because of “a subtle arrogance in his delivery, [and] not living up to his promises.”

A second source who has worked with the couple says that Pitt, 45, is more knee-jerk when it comes to supporting the administration’s policies, but that Jolie, 34, has not thrown in the towel on the Illinois Democrat – yet.

“Brad’s been a lot more automatically supportive of the President since he was elected,” the insider tells Fox411. “Angelina is waiting to see how he delivers on campaign promises and world affairs during his [first] term.”

Emails and calls for comment to reps for Jolie and Pitt were not immediately returned.

“Brad Come Lately” has indeed come calling to the White House more than Angelina since Obama took office. Recently released White House documents show that Pitt visited the White House sans Jolie twice since the President was elected.

Maybe he’s just boning up for his next political sit-down with the missus?

“Angie and Brad have in depth political discussions and they do disagree and argue,” says the pal. “[But] Brad credits Angelina with educating him greatly on world issues he was not a part of before they met.”

The source says Jolie (whose father Jon Voight, with whom she recently reconciled, is a staunch Republican) sometimes even out-lefts her famously liberal lover.

“Angelina is far left in some beliefs, but then she sees many sides from the right [hand point of view],” says the pal. “She believes in hard work and teaching people how to make their lives better. She also believes in lifting people in need up with support through food, money and education so they can succeed.”

And the parents of six both put their money where their mouths are. Together, the couple donated $6.8 million to charity in 2008 alone.

Because Glenn Beck is writing Brangelina Fox News Entertainment scoops now, right? “A subtle arrogance” in Obama’s demeanor? Seriously? What’s next? “Angelina Jolie agrees with Beck, calls Obama a racist”? Now, as far as the whole “Johnny Come Lately” thing – well, that’s kind of true. I mean, I don’t know if Angelina actually calls Brad that, but if she did, she wouldn’t be wrong. Brad’s heart seems to be in the right place, but I often wonder if he’s as engaged in these issues as he pretends to be. Maybe he thinks he’ll pick up foreign policy ideas through osmosis. Through sex with a certain saintly neoconservative vadge.

    Boy, Angelina’s fax machine is in overdrive this week.

  2. DD says:

    Why bother with this story if she has never publicly acknowledged her political views. There seems to be a smear campaign going on here, and even so why is it such a big deal what her opinion is in this matter.

  3. Leticia says:

    Team Jolie! I’m starting to like her now.

  4. Firestarter says:

    So she isn’t an Obama supporter, so what? Not everyone is or is required to be.

    It is not unusual that couples, married or not, have differing views on politics and politicians. Opposites attract. I have had one boyfriend my entire life who had the same political views as I did, all the others were my political opposites.

    Good for her that she is not some weak-willed woman who allows her significant other to dictate her political choices and beliefs. At least she is secure enough in her relationship and her own viewpoints to not give a damn if they conflict with her partners.

    This is a time I am on TEAM JOLIE. She has her beliefs and her views, so good for her. And good for her, unlike the kiss ass Brad, for not running around, and slobbering all over politicians because it is the P.C thing to do at the moment. I like that she keeps her politics to herself and doesn’t preach to the rest of us what we should be doing politically. It makes me sick when celebs go around acting like they are so P.C and then they live the opposite lifestyle of what they preach on about.

    The Brangie has been granted permission by 49 percent of the US population as a cost saving measure to eliminate all future presidential elections..The Brangie and their inherit ability to feel the pulse of the population deemed qualified on the strength of adopting as many children from foreign countries as possible and sell millions of tabloids to decide the future leadership of the United States.

    Jennifer Aniston moves to Canada but faces deportation after slugging Lainey on the tarmac..

  6. j'aime says:

    Angie doesn’t have time to pay attention to rumours about her.Us magazine and Fox are reports fake stories about her.

  7. bella says:

    Well, she also thought she was going to quit acting to focus on raising her children 3 children ago, and we all know how that turned out!

  8. WTF?!? says:

    I’d rather see a president who’s concerned with the plight of the American people first. Obama wasn’t elected to fix the problems of the world, he was elected to run OUR country, then to see to it we help the rest of the world. He’s clearly more interested in maintaining his Hollywood status than anything else.
    I don’t see him being reelected, either, and if the Dems are smart, they’ll nominate someone else in 2012.

    That being said, AJ is an uneducated dolt and should stick to making crappy movies and wearing designer versions of local garb in third world countries and leave matters of intellect to people who have some.

  9. Ursula says:

    Not that I think this is true, but I guess it goes with the ‘kick a Brangelina a day’. No am not a fan, in fact I think they deserve all the kicks they get, but you gotta feel sorry for Bradley, living in a world where you know people think you are a male blond with zero thinking capacity, duped by the very own wicked witch of the west, every one but him could see that Ange had his balls, now I guess he realizes that she is not as ‘sweet’ as he thought she was. However many denials you make, it is hard to ignore all stories about your other one being manipulative and playing on your psyche. I wonder what he plans to do now.

  10. snowball says:

    Why does this: “Angelina has worked very hard to get first-person accounts of what is going on in the world with her briefings from the UN, [while] Brad is a ‘Johnny Come Lately.’”

    sound like she’s Secretary of State or something. Maybe she’s like Jesse Ventura – he says he was exposed to confidential information and now he’s ready to talk. LOL, he actually says that.

    I don’t care if St. Angie is a raging Republican or not. I still don’t like her any more or less than I did before. And of course, we have to remember that US Weekly and (cough, ha) Fox News are both bastions of truthful reporting. No hysterical beating of the chest from either of those sources.

    Now if the National Enquirer wades into this one, confirming everything, I might be a lot more inclined to believe it, seriously.

  11. diva says:

    Why is anyone reporting on her political views at all? Remember this is the same woman that wore vials of blood around her neck to an awards show and kissed her brother on the mouth. She needs to just worry about raising her children in one country or city so they can have a normal life.

  12. Firestarter says:

    @Diva- Well by the same token , why report on any celebrity and their political views? What a celebrity thinks on politcal issues does not influence me.

    Perhaps ALL celebrities and their politcs should be kept quiet.

  14. CandyKay says:

    There’s nothing wrong with being a one-term president.

    I’d prefer a president more concerned with doing the right thing for the country and less concerned about his own re-election.

  15. princess pea says:

    Heh. It must have been a wonderful day at the Fox offices when that tabloid bull came out. I mean, it is perfect for their mandate; the most attention-garnering actress of the decade maybe said she didn’t like the President, whom they aim to discredit every single day. I bet Glenn Beck peed himself with joy.

  16. cara says:

    Funny how when a celeb comes out against “the one” everyone’s like, “celebs should keep their political views to themselves.” Yet, during the last election everyone thought they were “oh so poignant” what with their “hip” tee’s and “deep” commercials.

  17. Bill Hicks is God says:

    Her face looks like it was stamped out of grey Silly Putty.

    And her comment about “…the subtle arrogance of (Obama’s) delivery” was a real knee-slapper alright.

  18. lucy2 says:

    I’m no Angelina fan, but I do think it’s unfair to “report” about her political views when she has always kept them to herself.
    I don’t really care what she or any other celeb thinks about politics.

  19. kruczynski says:

    The only thing that I can say is that the picture of the surprised turkey between the saintly/ethereal/touched Jolie ones and the charismatic/strong Obama’s made me laugh. 🙂
    As for Angelina’s opinions about Obama, well she has the right to say what she wants, I don’t think that her opinion matters more than anyone else’s.

  20. Bob says:

    During the campaign, he promised he’d bring our troops home immediately. A year later, he’s sending more. He promised he’d close Gitmo immediately. A year later, it’s still operating. He promised he’d fix the economy immediately. A year later, he’s spent more money than every other president in history COMBINED, and the deficit is four times larger than when Bush was in office, and unemployment has soared.

    I’m not surprised that people who supported Obama are now starting to be disappointed. I know I am.

  21. Iggles says:

    CandyKay – I agree.

    It would be better if all elected officials were barred from serving consecutive terms. That way they would have to focus on the time they earned from the voters and not spend half of it fundraising for re-election during which a lot of quid pro quo crap happens..

  22. Sudini says:

    Leave it to Fox to pick this up and run with it. Whatever, it works for their dogmatic agenda. I can’t say I care what Angelina thinks about anything at this point. But for people to say that Obama is failing at cleaning up a mess that took the Bush administration eight long years to create is pretty stupid. Seriously, I don’t care who you are, no one is capable of cleaning up this kind of a mess in such a short amount of time. It’s going to be years before we see any real tangible evidence of things having been resolved.

  23. Huma says:

    Angie Jo is hardly one to talk about subtle arrogance.

    Allegedly, that is.

  24. Bete says:

    On one level, he isn’t really living up to anything at the moment however he did come in during a global financial disaster.
    I was surprised when he had the time to fly out for an Olympic bid when the US has already hosted the Olympics. One would think that there are enough problems to sort out.

  25. Raven says:

    Don’t believe it. She has always been quiet about her political beliefs or straight down the middle because of the work she does with the UN.

    Aside from that, I know many democrats who think Obama may be a one-term president.

  26. dizzybenny says:

    Obama IS a 1 term president!
    Oprah for 2012!!
    with Martha Stewart for VP.
    after that all the houses in the good ol’ USA will look and smell fantastik. 🙂

  27. lizzie says:

    I think that its pretty low of fox to put words into AJ’s mouth for or their own anti-democrat agenda, when she has never taken sides in public. Having said that I also feel a bit of dissapointment with Obama. The man had the task of cleaning up 8yrs of a previous presidency i.e bringing home troops he didn’t send in the first place etc. so I can agree that in one year he can’t possibly fix even half of that mess. Yet, I don’t agree with the White Housing mixing in with the Hollywood Scene, it just invalidates him in some ways because people begin to take him and what he does as show rather than as strategic political moves.

  28. Goddess711 says:

    That’s because she can’t count any higher.

  29. WTF?!? says:

    Goddess711 FTW!

  30. Cat says:

    How is Angie neoconservative? A neocon is someone who thinks every nation in the world should be democratic, and is willing to go to war to achieve the American way abroad. That doesn’t sound like Angie to me.

  31. anneesezz says:

    UGH…. I seriously hope she didn’t say some b.s. about “she believe in hard work, etc.” She sounds like George Bush. They were both born on third base and think they hit a triple. Give me a break!

  32. Sudini says:

    LOL @ Anneesezz! So true..

  33. Sherry says:

    ‘TEAM JOLIE’ is right! If she hates Obama, she can’t be all bad! Sorry Jen!

  34. J says:

    She hasn’t been invited to White House to give her ‘perspectives’ over the world because, like, she travels so much, you know, and like, she has so many children from everywhere, you know….

    Why doesn’t Obama love her? Why?

  35. karen says:

    This BS again? How much mileage are the tabloids getting with these lame stories about Angelina?

    It never fails–print some sh*t up about her and you will get attention.

    I’m actually starting to feel sorry for her. Well . . sort of.

  36. Rosanna says:

    Well it’s not secret I’ve always liked Angelina. One more reason *grin*

  37. Cea says:

    Who is she to criticize Obama? She hasn’t worked that hard for anything in her life. If it wasn’t for her famous actor daddy giving her an acting career she would be nothing. She should feel lucky she never had to grow up in poverty or even bouts of poverty. She’s always been fairly privileged Hollywood brat. People are really suffering in America right now, losing their homes and jobs wich she doesn’t seem to give a damn about. I guess it’s better photo opp- looks cooler for her to continuously pose with cute little black children in foreign coutries than to actually care about the disadvantaged people in this country.

  38. Aspie says:

    Go Cea!

  39. Tess says:

    A neoconservative is a “new” conservative. Someone who used to be a liberal, but whose life experiences lead to rethinking political philosophy.

    It’s false and absurd to say that neoconservatives are war-mongers, determined to force American-style democracy on other nations.

  40. meme says:

    @cea — I know darn well that it takes a lot of waiting, nail biting, and heartache to adopt an American baby (have friends who went through it), however she IS Angelina so how hard can it be for her? I have heard that because she has a police record of some sort, that makes her ineligible to adopt here, but I also know here that ‘money talks’. Can’t adopt here? Helping New Orleans is great, but they have the means to feed and help more hungry children and families here than to send it all oversea. It is, however, commendable that they do it at all, and they DO give much money to charity which is something few celebs seem to get involved with.(Publically anyway.) I agree also that Obama will be a one term President. This is a serious time in our country,yet most front page Obama news lately seems to be what Michelle wore to what event. Who REALLY cares about that, especially people who see these articles after they’ve lost their jobs, their homes, and many in the end, their families since these guys are looked upon as ‘failures’ so wives move on? On a PC note, this country has gotten SO PC that the whole PC idiocy is self distructing our country. Keep your eyes and ears open and you’ll see what I see as well. Very sad indeed.

  41. Pickelhaube says:

    All mainstream media is propaganda. ALL OF IT. One side isn’t really any better than the other, so I don’t understand the FoxNews hatred. It’s ALL censored, managed and designed to keep you placated and thinking that the BS they feed you is “real news”. It’s not.

    I do watch Fox News though…but I know what it is, and it’s less hateful than CNN or MSNBC, so where’s the outrage against them?

  42. Cat says:

    I majored in International Affairs in school and we commonly used ‘neoconservative’ to describe warmongers and pro-democracy types, like Cheney and Rumsfeld and their ilk. I’ve never heard it used to describe a changed opinion. Not sure about the other definition. It’s confusing to me to hear Angie called that, since she’s so far off from that typecast!
    And Tess, please don’t call my opinions false and absurd! I had good reason to say what I did, I didn’t just make it up to insult you.
