Wait, what? Twitter was recently buzzing over U2’s Bono and his boom-worthy remarks in praise of capitalism and free enterprise. Now it’s buzzing over actor Ashton Kutcher and a speech he gave to young people in which he proclaimed that no job was ever beneath him.

Kutcher gave an acceptance speech after winning at the Teen Choice Awards.

There had to be some Twitter snark, natch.

Heh. Now it’s more like “Dude, where’s his lockstep?” Is Kutcher breaking from the Hollyweird pack?

Most offered up only deserved praise.

The “Iowa boy” actor (who also revealed that his first name is Chris) continues to score on Twitter:

More from The Blaze:

“I believe that opportunity looks a lot like hard work,” Kutcher began with his first point. “When I was 13, I had my first job with my dad carrying shingles up to the roof, and then I got a job washing dishes at a restaurant, and then I got a job in a grocery store deli, and then I got a job at a factory sweeping Cheerio dust off the ground.”

He went on: “And I’ve never had a job in my life that I was better than. I was always just lucky to have a job. And every job I had was a stepping stone to my next job, and I never quit my job until I had my next job. And so opportunities look a lot like work.”

Ashton Kutcher, conservative? Come into the light, Ashton!

It does need to be heard; including by the residents of the White House.

Indeed. Actors James Woods and Ken Wahl have vowed to remain silent no longer. Wahl also believes that more “closeted” conservatives will be come out.

Is Kutcher next? Perhaps that is wishful thinking, but his insightful and powerful speech is a good first step.
