Today, Shep Smith over at Fox News made some news himself by saying that Honey Boo-Boo is more honest than President Obama. We certainly can’t argue with that point, but it’s important to know that she’s not the only famous person who is more honest than our President.
Here are some other fairly well-known folks who are more honest than Barack Obama.
1. Si Robertson from Duck Dynasty
Si has that aura of homespun wisdom and integrity about him. He’s nothing like President Obama.
2. Jay Leno
Just last night, he told Obama jokes with President Obama standing backstage waiting for an interview. That tells us that Leno isn’t willing to make changes to his routine to please anyone – even the President of the United States. In other words, he’s real.
3. Bob Filner
Sure, Mayor Bob Filner of San Diego may be a serial sexual harasser, but at least he owns up to his character flaws. President Obama lies repeatedly (like when he said he would never raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000 per year) and then never admits it.
4. Clint Eastwood
When a Hollywood actor and director speaks at the GOP convention (talking to an empty chair, no less) and tells Katie Couric that President Obama is “a terrible President”, then you know he is someone of integrity. He’s willing to ruffle a few (actually, quite a few) feathers among his brothers and sisters in the entertainment industry. It takes guts to stand up for the truth like that.
5. Bruce Willis
Another outsider who finds himself in the Hollywood scene is Bruce Willis. He opposed President Obama’s gun control efforts earlier this year. Just like Eastwood, Willis is willing to irritate his everyday coworkers in Hollywood to speak the truth. That’s admirable.
6. Ben Stein
The famous dude from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is pro-life. He has also demonstrated a great deal of integrity. For example, he publicly apologized to Peter Schiff when Schiff was right about the fate of Merrill Lynch and Stein was wrong. Has President Obama apologized for screwing up ObamaCare yet?
