Samuel L. Jackson’s message to voters: Wake the **** up!


Warning: Strong language is edited out of this video

Actor Samuel L. Jackson has a simple message to American voters – wake the [insert your favorite expletive] up!

Jackson stars in a new video supporting President Barack Obama that also outlines the reasons why he thinks Republican Mitt Romney would be bad for the country.

“We’re all on our own if Romney has his way,” Jackson says in the video. “He’s against safety nets. If you fall, tough luck. So I strongly suggest you WAKE THE **** Up!”

The video, which became a viral sensation on Thursday, was paid for by the Jewish Council for Research and Education, a liberal super PAC funded that is largely funded by billionaire George Soros’ 25-year-old son.

Adam Mansbach, who wrote the children’s book “Go the F**k to sleep,” wrote the script for the political ad, according to the New York Post. Jackson did an audio reading of that book on YouTube that became a YouTube sensation.

The video talks about Romney’s stance on Planned Parenthood, Medicare and college education. It also mentions some of the accomplishments of Obama’s tenure as president, including green lightING a Navy SEAL raid that killed Osama Bin Laden.

While not explicitly said, the video seems aimed at former Obama supporters or Democrats who lack the same kind of motivation or energy that helped get Obama elected four years ago.

It also targets specific groups of people – the elderly, married couples, college grads and new voters.

Jackson’s support for Obama isn’t a mystery. He’s talked at length about why he voted for Obama and why he believes he should be reelected.

    #2 You my friend need to step away from the Obama Punch Bowl .Way to much Kool Aid for you.The facts are that his administration is the only one in our entire history that hasn’t passed a budget. They are fudging the unemployment numbers , they say you are no longer unemployed after your unemployment checks run out. They said they needed to create 150,000 new jobs every month just to keep up with new young workers and people running out of unemployment eligibility . This passed jobs report they said 114,000 jobs were created but the unemployment fell to 7.8% from 8.1% . Who is lying now. The democrats in Pennsylvania got it passed that you no longer need to show identification in order to vote in their state, tell me how this makes sense. Don’t expect there to be any social security or medicare he is taking most of that money to help fund Obamacare which will cost another 3.5 Trillion . there are only a little over 300 million in the US and approximately 40% of them aren’t paying any taxes , granted 20% of those are here illegally anyhow thanks to his great efforts to close the borders.figure out how much that will cost each of us honest tax paying citizens . I’ll give you a hint us 99% aren’t going to make that much in our life time!
    Stop believing his administration’s lies , granted Mitt may not be our best but he makes alot more sense than the guy that couldn’t even look him in the eye at the debate.You really need to stop believing the media and find out the facts, you will be amazed. And I do like Big Bird lol

    Johnny….Watch as Connecticut goes Red for the first time since Regan. Face it…The big government/no jobs model isn’t sustainable. If you want that I’m sure you could move to Europe.

    I believe the people of the United States, have awaken from the coma induced by the Democratic party. There are millions more unemployed now than 4 years ago. Public aid is at a all time high, as those unemployed fall off of unemploment checks to receive Public aid, & food stamps. The fortunate who do have employment, have not seen pay raises, but the fuel prices escalate and therefore so do our groceries, etc., What is Mr. Obama doing about this? No cap on fuel has been ordered. If Mr. Obama wants to borrow the thought process on government controlled health care from Europe, perhaps he should also borrow their thoughts on fuel. Mr. Blair(Great Britian) put a cap on fuel(petrol) when it went overboard.

    Mr. Jackson, a man that takes credit for anothers thoughts and plans should not be idealized, but we as a people should be quite suspicous and be careful especially if that man is in the White House.

    Do any of you remember the reason that were given 4 years ago, that made you vote for our current President? You really need to listen to his speeches and read his format. Did he do anything that he said he would, or has he taken credit for what others had initialized and the rest just didn’t do! If you were his employer(that’s right you are) and you had an employee that did not meet all of the criteria for which they were hired, would you keep them? After all we know he didn’t have enough experience do warrant getting the job, but you hired him anyway.

    1). How can you want to continue to move in this direction with this country and its citizens.
    2). Shame on you Mr. Obama for wanting to run for another 4 years, when you can see where we are today, after your last 3 3/4 years.
    3). Mrs. Obama, thank you for trying to bring style back into the White House.
    4). I am not sure if Mr. Rommney is the right candidate or not, but we can not continue on the path we are on currently. This country can’t afford it, it citizens can’t afford it, and I a single mother of two surely can’t afford it.

    Mr. Obama you said it four years, we need change. Unfortunately we still do!
