Forrest Gump Supports Wapner, Obama

5/4/2008 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tom Hanks wants Barack Obama to be Prez, and it could be one of the most effective celeb endorsements so far.


Hanks, who put his homemade video up on his MySpace page, begins by saying, "I'm Tom Hanks and I want Barack Obama to be the next President of our country. As an official celebrity, I know my endorsement has just made your mind up for you."

Hanks then gets serious, acknowledging both candidates have screwed up and associated with the wrong people, including relatives. Could Tommy boy really be saying that about Bill?

Watch, then cast your vote!

I have lost all respect for Mr. Hanks for his decision to go with Obama, who does not know what truth is. Mr. Hanks is
a good actor and he should endorse that and not the presidential candidate. Just because you are an actor does
not mean you make good judgement in the political arena. He joins the ranks of Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon,
Barbra Streisand as ultra libral and they need to "shut up". They are who are destroying this country, not Prez Bush.

"Tom Hanks has wants"......................TMZ, this is really getting pathetic!!! Do have illegals working for you who just don't understand the ENGLISH language. Please hire (or fire) a copy editor!

May God be with ALL of us if Obama parks himself in the White House. On the other hand, Hillary is even worse! So very sad what OUR choices are!!!!!!

As for tom's support for senator obama that's tom's choice and as an American I can respect that. don't change my veiw of tom as an actor. ( tom is a very good actor ) or human being. As for his coice of presidential canidate, well its a bit lacking.

She's the BEST canidate for president...... HILLARY 2008 FOR PRESIDENT!! & as far as Oprah is concerned, does she or did she EVER ATTEND REV. Wright's CHURCH???????????????????? HILLARY IS FOR ALL AMERICAN PEOPLE & SHE'S NOT A RACIST! & SHE KNOWS HOW TO BE PRESIDENT!!

My take on celeb endorsements is that I don't pay any attention to them.
As with movie reviews, usually if it is a negative review, I might like it.
In other words, usually the opposite is true. If Hitlery or Hussein Obama get
in the white house, god help us all! Oh wait, they aren't into god.
