Mel Gibson: Obama Not Going To Fix Our Mess

Mel Gibson is attempting a dramatic image rehab as he promotes his new thriller 'The Edge of Darkness,' but he's not pretending to be a huge fan of President Obama.

"[Obama] is a man with an impossible task on his hands," Gibson told Fox News' Pop Tarts at the movie's LA premiere. "He got left a mess and I wish him all the best but I don't think he's going to fix it in five minutes and probably not in his entire tenure."

At the same premiere Gibson walked the red carpet with his girlfriend, Oksana, who gave birth to their daughter in October.

'The Edge of Darkness' opens Friday.
