Quotables: Joey Lawrence is Really Political, Yo

“Obama was something fresh, and new, and people wanted to put their faith in his message of being different and ‘change’ and all this stuff two years ago, but that fell flat because he gets in there and it’s pretty much the same old thing. I think everybody can agree on that, there’s no real change. … Gasoline is going to be six dollars a gallon by the end of the summer. They want to raise the debt ceiling, and we have a trillion and a half dollars already in debt. … I’d be open to Donald. He’s somebody out of the box and I think that some of the stuff he’s saying makes sense. It sounds like you and I would say it, and it’s time. … I think Donald is an interesting character. He’s an amazing CEO, this is a business. This is a business, running this country is a business and it has not been run the last decade the right way, whether it’s Republican or Democrat, so it’s not really a party issue, it’s more of a person issue. Somebody has to get in there and really hold people accountable.”

Joey ‘Whoa!’ Lawrence on the many intricacies of politics. I was totally open to listening to his tirade up until he mentioned supporting Donald-fucking-Trump, and then it was all lost on deaf, bleeding ears.

I’m not saying that everyone’s not entitled to their opinions about government, politics, and the way that their nations are run, but how about this: instead of regurgitating whatever headlines you’re hearing out of the corner of your ear on your network of choice, or seeing short snippets of headlines in newspapers and failing to read the entire story, educate yourself. Lawrence, as far as I’m concerned, made no startling revelations aside from stating what he’s heard in various arenas of the media over the past six-to-twelve months.

I respect people – and especially celebrities who have a part in being a ‘role model,’ no matter how small – for their opinions, whether or not they differ from my own, but come on. Let’s have a little originality here. It’d be like a hardcore Democrat continuously walking around with a sign crying ‘YES WE CAN!’ and NOTHING ELSE for the last two years now.

PS – Despite current prices, gas won’t be six damned dollars a gallon by the end of the summer. Check out info on the market and current and historic oil trends before you start your Donald-supporting fear-mongering, JOEY.

  • I bet gas will be that high in CA and other places. Lets remember to check back this summer, mmmkay?

  • I agree he lost me when he brought up Donald Trump as a viable candidate. Donald Trump can’t even admit he’s balding and wears his hair in the most ridiculous manner I’ve seen in quite a while. I would NEVER vote for a real estate developer – you have to be a little scummy to be successful at it.

  • Yeah…the $6/gallon has been a fear-mongers threat now for years. It goes up some, it comes down some. It’s how it goes.

  • It will be $6 by the end of the year because of the devaluation of the dollar and what’s called the “inflation tax.” Bet on it, plan for it – that’s if the dollar makes it that long. We could be the North American Union using the AmEuro by then. Sigh.

  • Yeah, well my reply is to wait for the formal announcement. In all likelihood, Trump isn’t going to run. The conventional wisdom is it’s a publicity stunt for The Celebrity Apprentice finale and I’m inclined to agree. Love him or hate him, until the GOP field of candidates shapes up, Trump is the de facto front runner.
