Alec Baldwin is warning the country. “America will never be great again under a Romney administration,” the volatile actor sonorously intoned in a recent, rambling Huffington Post screed.
If Mitt Romney is elected, Baldwin tells us, only “rich people” will find the country great. “Everyone else will be asked to dial down their [sic] expectations of what it means to be an American, again,” he warns.
It is clear that Mr. Baldwin isn’t paying attention to his fellow Americans because as a nation we are already lowering our expectations for the future. We are doing so right now, under Barack Obama.
Let’s see how Americans feel under Obama’s regime:
- But a scant 16 percent see a better future for their kids in Obama’s America
- Only 41 percent think the U.S. economy will get stronger in the near future
- A clear majority, 60 percent feel the country is in a recession
- A full 58 percent feel that the country is headed in the wrong direction
It looks to me, Mr. 30 Rock, like the country has already downgraded its expectations of the future and have done so under the very man you want re-elected!
But, Baldwin is dismissive of Obama’s destruction. Baldwin has decided that Obama isn’t “any more of a socialist than his predecessors.”
We can take Baldwin’s warning seriously, of course, because, why, he’s a serious man. After all, he is a man well-known for verbally abusing his own daughter, physically attacking fans and photographers, and being thrown off planes for refusing to observe FAA safety procedures.>
