Though he is a Democrat and campaigned hard for President Obama, actor Matt Damon is not as convinced of the abilities of the commander-in-chief as he once was. In fact, Damon has gone so far as to say that Obama has let the public down.

The actor made the comments while promoting “Green Zone”, a new Iraq war thriller. Damon’s character portrays a soldier fighting to expose the Bush administration’s weapons of mass destruction deception.

Matt has vowed to support Barack Obama but now admits, “Politics is compromise. I’m disappointed in the healthcare plan and in the troop build-up in Afghanistan. Everyone feels a little let down because, on some level, people expected all their problems to go away. But real change comes from everyday people. You can’t wait for a leader.”

Other celebrities who stood solidly behind Obama and his vision during the presidential race include: Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Aniston, Will.I.Am, Ben Affleck, George Clooney, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson and Chris Rock.
