Oliver Stone: ‘I find Obama scary’
Politico, by Patrick Gavin

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 11/9/2012 3:34:47 PM

Each presidential cycle gets shrouded in the penultimate question, “Are you better off than you were four years ago?” In Oliver Stone’s new book — “The Untold History of the United States” — the filmmaker, along with historian Peter Kuznick, argues that, “The country Obama inherited was indeed in shambles, but Obama took a bad situation and, in certain ways, made it worse.” Much of Stone and Kuznick’s book focuses on the threats posed by government secrecy and militarism throughout history and, in an interview with Politico Friday, Stone said that things aren’t getting better.

This is actually good. We need people like Oliver Stone to see clearly what's happening. If they voted for him, they should pay. Not class envy. Just consequences

Bush tried to moderate the problem, although he could have tried harder. It was primarily due to government coercion of banks to make formerly redlined loans, enabled by the Fed and Fan/Fred. And dumb investors who bought those toxic CMOs.

Oliver Stone finally comes around. Well, these morons will reap what they have sown; they fell in love with the scary man, 0bama. As far as everyone blaming Bush, history will right this misjudgment. The truth is, Barney Frank, Dodd, and 0bama's likes forced banks to loan to people with no money, no jobs and no way to pay the mortgage. Bush tried on several occasions to stop this stupidity. But the democrats kept peddling the stuff, and then the Lehman Brothers and Goldman Sachs packaged all this bad debt into bundles that they sold knowingly to unsuspecting buyers. So put the blame right square where it belongs, 0bama, first, then Barney Frank and the democrat lawmakers. This is a tragedy that will unfold for years, and yet, most of the morons cannot even see this coming. Scary !!!! Ollie, you should be terrified.

Oliver Stone would see a conspiracy at a junior high bake sale.

Just because an insane man agrees with you on a given day doesn't mean he's worthy of attention.

Oh, what a load of B.S. Last month he was pimping this piece of horse manure in a silk suit. And he still is. Read it.
Two things.
One, Stone thinks by ascribing ''scary'' to Obama, he builds on Obama's new image as the ''badass'' who killed Bin Laden, and who is morally and ethically superior enough to be capable of handling wisely any precedents he may put in action.

Thing 2 - the only ''scary'' thing Stone is even pretending to be worried about is the possibility that these powers could, through actions of 'unwise' voters sometime in the future fall into the hands of a president who is not nearly so strong and wise as Barack Obama.
What a joke, non-story, and less than subtle hymn to Obama this ridiculous excuse for an interview is! Stone is just one more celebritrash Obama worshipper thinking himself far more clever than he is.

---Maybe I'm just a cynic, but it's been a while since Stone had a hit movie...what better way than to throw a "bone" to get positive feedback, and magically he probably has a movie coming out?

Did you read the article? Oliver Stone thinks Obama is scary because he sees Obama doing the same kinds of military strikes/policies as the really scary "Bush and Reagan" people.

All these headlines about various celebs who are "disappointed" or whatever with Obama is because he hasn't been LEFT enough. They will never, ever, EVER, vote for a Republican over a Democrat.

When a proven socialist is scared... then maybe we have hope. Stone adores Hugo...

Maybe Stone will make a movie about a mad dictator who maintains an int'l kill list.

Hollywood may have been given the edict they can only produce films or tv shows that have been cleared by the WH. Chickens come home to roost.

First thing Stone's said that I can recall agreeing with -- I find Obama scary, too.

But I still remember swearing Stone would never see another fraction of a cent from me after I saw 'JFK' in the theater. (Ugly and irresponsible were the two nicest things I could think of to say about it.)

So he could say today that he thinks Obama is evil, and even that wouldn't motivate me to give him the benefit of the doubt again.

WASHINGTON — The mysterious American plane that landed at an airport in Tehran belongs to an overseas client, the bank that acts as a trustee for the plane confirmed on Friday. Scott Nielsen, an executive at the Bank of Utah, which according to FAA databases owns the plane, said that the executives had been trying to reach the real owners but “This is an overseas customer and they don’t operate under the same hours as we do.” Clients “can be an American they can not be one,” Nielsen said. “The service is used by all kinds of people for a

A lawyer who specializes in sex abuse cases says this week´s lawsuit against director Bryan Singer is but one of several Hollywood abuse cases that will come to light in the coming weeks. Today we learned of a suit against Bryan Singer, the director of the upcoming superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past and a big Democratic donor, charging he drugged and sexually abused a 15-year-old boy back in 1999. Singer´s legal team denies the charges. Lawyer Jeff Herman, who is representing the plaintiff, cautions Wednesday´s suit isn´t an isolated incident. Herman works as a sexual abuse attorney who previously sued

One rainy morning this month, the man who thought he would be president boarded a train near his beach house in San Diego. He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office. Looking and sounding like a president out of central casting, he nailed his lines. The crew called him “one-take Romney,” and before he departed, they swarmed, extending arms around his shoulders and angling their iPhones for

Pope breaks rules as he washes feet of

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

Ed Snowden, Russian TV star,
hands Putin a propaganda coup

Posted By: Drive- 4/18/2014 7:28:50 AM     Post Reply
What are the odds? I mean, Vladimir Putin does a call-in show and one guy who happens to get through—to ask a question in English—is Ed Snowden? That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

Detroit bailout plans just paper over

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services. Detroit is facing

Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
