Below is an article that Fox News posted of Sophia Bush talking about she has been disappointed with Obama’s time in Office and more. You can read about it below:
“One Tree Hill” star Sophia Bush has long been involved in political issues, including touring college campuses to encourage young people to vote to making appearances in Texas in support of the 2008 Obama campaign.
Apparently Bush even contemplated a career in politics herself, until coming to the conclusion she couldn’t make much of a difference.
“I certainly have thought about it (moving into politics) but the more that I know of politics, the more it makes me realize that being a politician is largely useless,” Bush told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column at InStyle’s Forevermark Diamond Preview at the Beverly Hills Hotel. “I would much prefer to at some point, to advise a fund and make change, rather than have to sit in a room listening to bureaucratic bull***t and try to cut through red tape and really not get anything done. I’m not interested in living the life that I think our president has been living… I’m really disillusioned by the whole political sphere at this point, and I’d really rather focus on the non-profits base and do work there.”
Bush said she has been disappointed with Obama’s time in Office, but she doesn’t necessarily blame the candidate she campaigned for so passionately. “I saw a lot of attempt at change. There are certainly some things that have let me down but again, I just feel like we’ve watched a man be broken,” she continued. “I think that it should be a big wake up call to everyone. When our president is supposed to barter our health care as individuals for the rights for oil companies, what are we talking about? Where do we live? That’s not the way I want things to go, I know that.” Read more: here.
