Jon Lovitz Rants

I saw this on Yahoo News, though I gather it has gotten all over the Internet.

The former “Saturday Night Live” star delivered some choice words for the president on his podcast, “The ABCs of SNL.” The show is co-hosted by Kevin Smith and calls itself “Live from the Jon Lovitz Podcast Theater.”

The actor said he’s a Democrat and voted for Obama, but now he’s mad as hell at the president’s plan to raise taxes on the rich — and his rant has the Web buzzing.

The comic called Obama a “[bleep]ing a-hole… for saying the rich don’t pay their taxes.” Lovitz delivered his invective after assuring the audience “I voted for the guy” and even expressed admiration for Obama’s rise from “nothing.” “He had no father — he is mixed-race, which is a burden… and the guy ends up going to Harvard, and he’s the president of the United States.”

Lovitz gave Obama no slack for turning against his fellow millionaires, however. “This whole thing with Obama saying the rich don’t pay their taxes is f—ing bulls—,” he said. “First they say to you… ‘The United States of America, you can do anything you want — go for it! So then you go for it and you make it and everyone’s like, ‘[Bleep] you!’”

Well, I agree with Lovitz about Obama, but I have to wonder just what he thought he was voting for in 2008. For those of us who paid attention to what Barack Obama was actually saying, and who took the trouble to learn something about his background, there really have been no surprises regarding Obama’s actual policies. The only thing that took me by surprise has been just how incompetent a president Obama actually is.
