New York (ANI): Actor Matt Damon, who campaigned for US President
Barack Obama during elections, feels let down by the leader"s
health care plans and troop build up in Afghanistan. The Bourne
Identity actor believes that Obama has compromised too much.
"Politics is compromise. I'm disappointed in the health care
plan and in the troop buildup in Afghanistan," the New York Daily
News quoted him as saying. He added: “Everyone feels a little let
down because, on some level, people expected all their problems to
go away. But real change comes from everyday people. You can't wait
for a leader." However, Damon thinks Obama deserves more time.
Also, the actor spoke about his new film, Iraq war thriller, Green
Zone. He said: "the people who worked on ''Green Zone'' come from
all across the political spectrum."
Damon plays the character of Roy Miller, based on real-life Army
chief warrant officer Richard (Monty) Gonzales, whose Mobile
Exploitation Team was charged with finding the WMDs during the 2003
invasion of Iraq. He said: "Monty was a Republican - he'd voted for
Bush. He went to Iraq with the absolute conviction he was going to
find the WMDs."
