Singer/actress Bette Midler has blamed the U.S government for the current credit crisis - and has pledged her allegiance to presidential hopeful Barack Obama's campaign.
The star has vowed to support the Democratic presidential candidate in the elections next month (Nov08) - because she can no longer live under a Republican government, currently led by George W. Bush.
She says, "The Republicans have really bought us to our knees. I hope people remember what the last eight years were like when they vote.
"Now we're in the middle of something which is absolutely devastating, brought on by their utter refusal to regulate and their delusion that the markets would regulate themselves.
"But I'm excited about the election of Barack Obama. I feel he'll bring a lot to that position. We're in this credit crisis and, good God, who's gonna be able to fix that? But if anyone can, he can."
