Actor Christopher Walken recently told Moviefone that President Obama has accomplished a lot in his first term and things could be a lot worse.
Do you support Obama?
I do. I think what [Bill] Clinton said the other night is absolutely true: Nobody could fix this in four years. Obama’s really done remarkably. The Dow Jones — look at how things have come along. The auto companies are back. It’s interesting that nobody gives him credit.
People seem more impatient these days.
Yeah, absolutely. How could he [fix it] when you think about what it was? I remember very clearly because I was worried about it myself. People were scared. Now they’re concerned, but they’re not scared. It could have really been bad. I do believe that everything is getting better now.
