Morgan Freeman donates one million to obama campaign

Morgan Freeman believes in Barack Obama.

So much so that he just donated a whopping $1 million to his re-election campaign because the actor believes the president did "a remarkable job in historically difficult circumstances."

In a statement explaining his charitable gift to the Democratic super PAC, Priorities USA Action, the Dark Knight Rises star said:

"He ended combat operations in Iraq, put in place sensible reforms of Wall Street, saved the auto industry and protected the health care of every American. He has led our nation to be more tolerant and placed impressive, accomplished women on the Supreme Court. In return, he is the target of hundreds of millions of dollars from right-wing sources. I am proud to lend my voice - and support - to those who defend him. Priorities USA Action is doing a great job of protecting the values I believe in. I am happy to help them and I hope others will join me."

Freeman is not the first to donate such a large sum since Bill Maher gave the same figure, while DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg has handed over $2 million, but we're sure Democrats are hoping that he won't be the last either.

    doesn't that make you curious to know what Oprah has donated so far- millions!
    Obama as of last month has outraised any previous people in fundraising
    too bad they don't give the rest to foodbanks
    had Obama done a great job he would not have to spend a dime to get re-elected
    we'd be excited to give him 4 more years
    having the past few years see the country in worse condition means he's got to spend a fortune trying to convince us that he deserves more time in office
    sorry but I think not
    not sure Romney is the answer but he couldn't be any worse in my mind!
    unfortunatle that no "visoinary" in eaither party was found or came forward for the job…
