Michael Moore

MATT DAMON FOR PRESIDENT!

8/8/2011 11:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Moore wants Matt Damon to run for PRESIDENT -- not just because he believes in Matt's outspoken politics ... but because he believes Matt might actually WIN in 2012.

Michael spoke in an online seminar yesterday for FireDogLake.com -- and when asked who he thought would be a viable candidate in next year's election, Michael instantly replied, "Matt Damon."

Check out the audio to hear why.

As we previously reported, Matt's definitely got passion -- going on a badass tirade recently at an education rally in defense of teachers.

I think 2012 is a bit too soon for him, but I think in an election or 2 he could do tremendous good for the country. I would totally vote for him. He is a great guy.

If Michael Moore endorses someone, it's never a good idea..he's beyond disgusting....don't get me started on Michael Moore.....and Hollywood, keep your politics to yourself and quit trying to ram your ideas down our throats...get off your soapboxes.

Of course he would make a great president. With all of his experience running some form of government...oh, wait. Well, with his business background and the corporate success he''s had..oops, my bad again. I keep forgetting it has turned into a contest of "who do we think is the cooler candidate". How's it working? Cool dude? Sure. Presidential candidate? Tap the brakes Mr. Moore.

It doesn't take too much experience to be president these days. Youth and a good face will get you in, so sure, Matt can be president. Much of the American electorate aren't playing with a full deck. Garbage in, garbage out.

The Truth    

What's with Matt's "badass" persona he's been trying so hard to cultivate lately? To me he just comes off as a confused, angry midget with a completely liberal agenda...I guess he's just trying his best to weasel his way back into the spotlight.

Q    

Another one whom never held a real job but has all the answers for the rest of us working folks. He's nothing but a Boston non Patriot--the kind that keeps reelecting the likes of John Kerry, Barney Frank, and Teddy Kennedy. Those 3 alone have ruined more, cost us more, and delivered less than any 3 others from a single state. Matt, stick to what you know best---playing tough guys who talk with a Southie accent. Fraud.

Let Matt ripen a bit longer - I think by 2016 George Clooney's time will have come.
