(Newser) – President Clooney? He wouldn't be the first actor in the Oval Office, but he says he’ll never do it—partly because of the hard time our current president is having. “Look, there’s a guy in office who is smarter than anybody you know, and nicer, and he’s having an almost impossible time governing,” Clooney said at the Venice Film Festival. “Why would anyone volunteer for that job?” The Telegraph notes that he also pointed out, “I have a very good job. So I have no interest.” Click to find out why Michael Moore thinks a certain pal of Clooney’s should run instead.

This numbskull is another illuminati puppet, he probably was scripted to say this. Amazing the ignorant average American will eat this up, when in reality how is this news? This whole system and the reality sculpted around it are all to keep you confused. They love the whole republican vs democrat paradigm, keeps us fighting each other instead of uniting for freedom. I predict they will try to start a race war to make the tension even worse before the election. Peace. Love. Happiness. Stay asleep sheep!

Far-left fruitcake Clooney shouldn't be president of anything. He wouldn't even be an "actor" if it weren't for his family connections. What a dork.
