    Like I said on TOAITH’s site Mr Hanks will get rewarded with my hard earned $ not only for being a fabulous actor and I love Julia Roberts 😉 but anyone who stands by my PoB and does so in public and means business;I’ll support 😀

    Tom Hanks loves his President. We love Tom Hanks.

    It shock that newswoman, what Tom Hanks said. But I love it. If I was near Mr. Hanks I would give him a kiss. For once some one sits on tv and say something good about this President. Thank you Lord.

        BOOYAH! This is why I adore Tom Hanks. He completely cut the anchor off at the knees. He knew what she was trying to pull and he wasn’t gonna be her puppet. He understands what the issues are and what significant and historical accomplishments this President has achieved. To the PL; this is what an adult looks like. Take notice and learn. This is why PBO and FLOTUS adore he and his wife Rita Wilson.

    I love a man who gets right to the point. I love Tom Hanks and we can see from the start that he has been a true friend and supportor of the President. Yes, indeed, a very very smart man. Love this one, Chipsticks. Thank you.

    Take note Matt Damon because this is how you do it. Tom Hanks is awesome and his new movies looks funny. I will check it out.

    The written comments were great, but the video is a HOME RUN OUT THE PARK – BOOM! Thank you Mr. Tom Hanks!!!!!!

    This is what support sounds like! As the old folks say, Go ‘head on, Tom Hanks, I am not mad at you!
    No wonder he was with PBO in the UK (at both dinners and in the audience with the president addressed Parliament).
    And why was she asking him about PBO when he was there to promote his movie> Did she think that he would be another Matt Damon or Samuel L. Jackson?

    What did Sam Jackson say about the President?

    Thank you Mr. Hanks! The President has worked his butt off the American worker. Mr. Hank is the voice of Millions and I believe the majority in this country. I know I can be wrong but I really think the Repubs have overplayed their hand.

    Samuel L. was one of those who said that he was disappointed in PBO. Don’t remember the source; this was some time ago.

      Thanks Ceb! I never knew that. I think people like Matt and Sam will come to their sense one day soon when they realize there are no quick fixes our problems. They put all their hope in one person. The President said from day one it’s not about him and it about us. They have to be willing to put in the work to force change.

      That’s fine. I’m disappointed in Samuel Jackson. Tit for tat, two can play that game. Actually, I’m no movie fan so I’m just talking trash. But, whatever he’s disappointed in, I’d very much like to ask him what he would do differently.

  24. June 23, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    I love Tom Hanks! 🙂

    Tom Hanks movies are the only movies that I attend on opening day. Love the man, always will! He’s intelligent, realistic, and extremely talented.

    I was planning to just catch Larry Crowne when it comes out on cable, but this has convinced me that I need to make a trip to the cinema this weekend. Love me some Tom Hanks!!

    May God bless you Tom Hanks…

    Thank you for standing by this most hardworking but much maligned and attacked President…

    You Mr Hanks are that rare man of great integrity and honor…

    Thank you…
