“Good Times” star Jimmie Walker recently spoke with Fox’s Bill O’Reilly about his disappointment with President Obama…and Jay Leno.
“Barack Obama is more like a Tony Roberts type of guy,” Jimmie Walker said in an interview with Bill O’Reilly that aired on the “O’Reilly Factor” earlier this week. “You feel real good and happy and everything and then you go home and there’s a foreclosure sign on your door. And you just go, ‘Wait a minute. I just had this great meeting with this guy. He made me feel real good.’ And I don’t think he’s a bad guy. I don’t think he’s a good guy for the job we have to do.”
When asked by O’Reilly how he explains his opposition to Obama to other blacks, he was unapologetic. “You just can’t blindly vote for somebody just because they’re your — sometimes even a brother, you have to let him go and he’s not doing the gig.”
It would also seem his lack of enthusiasm for Barack Obama isn’t a recent phenomenon. “I never voted for him,” Walker told O’Reilly.
“I say, let’s look at the job he’s done and I go back to the old Reagan slogan: Are you doing better now than you were four years ago?”
“I just think that he’s not the guy,” Walker concluded.
Way to go, JJ. America appreciates Hollywood stars (and former stars) that think for themselves. You just earned yourself a loyal fan…and I may even buy your book.
