Not everyone is giving up on President Obama. There are some who still believe he can do a second term as president.
Rapper Jay-Z aka Shawn Carter recently spoke on the president's behalf. In the latest news actor Denzel Washington also defended President Obama.
On Wednesday, during a news conference, Denzel Washington gave his opinions about the Republicans role in Tuesday's election.
Washington said the Republicans election rout was a slap in the face for the the president.
"I think that the role speaks more of people's frustration about their own economic situation, about the frustration of the voters with all of the politicians in America," Denzel said.
He also added that jobs are the number one priortity in America.
So many are getting laid off and loosing their jobs. No income leads to debt, foreclosure on homes, and loss of earned assets.
After Tuesday's results, the "Unstoppable" actor speculated that the outcome would deliver good government for the next two years. He said with the Democrats leading in the Senate, the Republicans running congress, and a president who can veto power, there are good checks and balances.
Before the conference was over Denzel was asked if he would play the role of Obama in a movie. "I'm too old," he replied.
Denzel Washington played Malcom X. He could be a good candidate for the role of President Obama, maybe he can get an Oscar this time. "Training Day" was the least of the movies the actor should have gotten an award for. He played a crooked cop vs a civil rights leader. He won the award for playing a bad detective, rather than a man who died for what he believed in, how amazing!
