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!

You stupid stupid Americans need Barack Obama in the whitehouse more than you could ever know... God help your poor pathetic excuse of a country - you need a president who is going to help bridge the racism and nationalism that has DESTROYED your country. What a bunch of racist, uneducated pigs on this website - you deserve everything that is happening to your stupid country. Thank god the American empire has finally fallen.

I would have said Tom Hanks before today...except today I watched Charlie Wilson's War, or I should say the first 15 minutes of it, and lost respect for him. If he can star in a piece of sleaze like that movie, I really don't value what he has to say politically. And I lost respect for Oprah years ago.

Get real! This guy is Al, Jessie and Louis in sheeps clothing! He will destroy this country. Look at the % of crime that blacks commit based on the % of blacks in our country. Remeber that most of the black city mayors that have been elected over the years are on the take or drug users ie: The mayor of detriot! Do you really want this guy in the white house running the country? Think about it, please. Rev. Wright is only the begining of what you don't know about this mans plans for america's future.

#65... as much as I hate to admit itI totally agree. As many enemies America has made, you'd THINK we'd be trying to get someone in office who can bridge the gap. The only thing questionable about Obama has been his pastor & anyone can misjudge one's character.

What are the charges of the others? Instead we have some broad who is using her ovaries to run for office and another running on the beginning stages of alzheimer's. Let's not even talk about the current... HERE WE ARE.

Ignorance is bliss... and i'm sure as this country sinks deeper in debt and hate... many in other foreign lands will share your opinion.

#69 LOL the forementioned in sheep's clothing is what they are not. There is no mistaken about their views on the injustices of America? Where do they come from? As a result of what??? What difference is there in drugs in the house than whore & war mongers??? Sad that you truly believe that black people are responsible for drugs in this country... what planet are you on... drugs like aids or any other social ill does not have particulars... there are plenty of meth heads, heroine addicts, and pharmaceutical abusers that blacks are a VERY LOW percentage.

Maybe the real fact of the matter is Obama's race is more of a problem than people care to admit, but I understand.

What I want to know is who the hell gives a crap who Tom Hanks and Oprah are voting for ? It boils down to this at election time you will have Republican Liar and a Democrat Liar all you do is vote for who you feel is the best liar and then for the next four years you sit back and watch them screw you and the country up even more than it is. Lets face it the President and Congress are nothing more than puppets for people like Warren Buffet, big corporations and Arab countries and thats it. If you your not super rich, rich or have power your going to get screwed by whoever gets elected. So enjoy your trip to the polling booth and on the way home buy 4 years supply of condoms and kleenex tissues and vasoline or petroleum jelly. Don't sweat the rest of it cause you ain't gonna get out of life alive anyway.

It is a pitty to see people I thought had some common sense show they don't. Because anyone who knows anything about Obama would never think he is good for this country. I guess Hanks is just another liberal moron too!

Oh it just breaks my heart to see how racism is still very much a problem for the USA. As an outsider looking in, over the past 6 months I have been blown away by the comments directed at Barack Obama and/or his supporters. To hear people say that they would never vote for a man whose name is one letter away from Osama. To hear people say that so long as the deep south lives, a black man will never be in the Whitehouse.
I think he's your only hope... Hillary has done nothing but play dirty politics and it's going to catch up to her. Barack has the heritage, background and education needed to advance your country's mentality past the stone ages.
His father is from Kenya, his mother from Kansas. He lived mostly in Hawaii growing up and spent 4 years in Indonesia. He graduated from Columbia and Harvard. To hear people bashing him because of his NAME or RACE makes me believe the stereotypes that the world holds against your country.
