Morgan Freeman Adds Deep and Gravelly Voice to New Obama Campaign Ad
Morgan Freeman has made it no secret that he is a supporter of President Obama. Appearing on Tavis Smiley’s show, Freeman said, ”We’re going to be in a lot of trouble if we don’t reelect Obama,” concluding that ”people on the other side of the fence scare me.”
“I think that we did a really good thing when we elected Barack Obama. I read his books, they read his books. He is absolutely and totally qualified for the job. He has proven himself to be not only qualified for the job, but very good at it. The things that he’s managed to get accomplished in the face of so much push back is amazing” said Freeman.
Now Freeman, who is known for his authoritative oration, is adding his own voice to one of President Obama’s campaign ads. The ad begins with, “Every President inherits challenges” and walks potential voters through President Obama’s accomplishments.
Freeman’s not the first black actor to star in an Obama reelection ad though. Samuel L. Jackson is lending a hand with his “Wake the F*ck Up” ads, which began airing on YouTube in late September.
Could Obama have done any better than Morgan Freeman? Probably not, since the only voice that even comes close to Freeman’s is that of James Earl Jones. Some white people have a problem with having a black man as president, but they sure don’t mind hearing black men talk. Talking is fine, but when you decide you want to run something, then, Houston, we have a problem.
