Hi Hater: Matt Damon Says He’s Not Feeling President Obama’s “Hope” Steez Anymore

- By Bossip Staff

Uh oh, President Obama has pissed off “Jason Bourne”…

Matt Damon is saying Nope to Hope.

In a stinging critique, the Oscar-winning actor has turned on President Obama, saying the Democrat he championed in the 2008 race for the White House has not offered change he can believe in.

“I really think he misinterpreted his mandate,” Damon told CNN. “A friend of mine said it the other day and I thought it was a great line: ‘I no longer hope for audacity.’ ”

That’s a dig at the name of Obama’s best-selling book The Audacity of Hope.

Damon rapped Obama’s education policy as advancing test preparation, not critical learning.

“The idea that we’re testing kids and we’re tying teacher salaries to how kids are performing on tests, that kind of mechanized thinking has nothing to do with higher order,” he said.

He was also unimpressed with Obama’s foreign policies, especially in Afghanistan.

Matt can be salty all he wants to, but he better get used to seeing ol’ Barry O’s face because we believe he’s gonna be back for round 2 in 2012!

Have any of you changed your stance on President Obama since his inauguration into office???
