Gee, I wonder why Stone hasn't done a movie about Clinton? It's probably because he is a close pal, and a left wing nut job.

Josh Brolin is lucky to still be "acting". Talk about a D-lister.

Uhh...Mark, have you read anything about this movie at all? By all accounts it's meant to humanize Bush in a way that many other media outlets haven't been able to. But, being a republican, I doubt you would let facts like that get in the way of your hate speech.

Well, the Screen Actors Guild and most movie critics in this country would respectfully disagree with your obviously expert opinion...

Stone isn't doing a movie about Clinton because it's already been done. It was called Primary Colors and it came out a few years ago.

D-Lister? Lucky to be acting? The guy starred in 3 movies last year that were nominated for academy awards. I can't wait to be as washed up as he is.

I guessing Brolin and other liberal hollywood types made comments that some of the locals didn't cotton to.
In other words, the only 'hate' being done is by left wing jerks who don't have to make this type of movie other than to profit by all the democrats who listen to their gospel.
It's amazing how you put all that together without being in the bar (probably without being in the same state), reading the script, or seeing the movie. You should be writing for the Trib. Your post had much more detail than the article did.

In case my last bit of sarcasm was too deep for you-
I wrote "I'm guessing" which is an admission that I didn't know for sure and was basing it on the character he was portraying.
Second- my criticism was directed at Stone who, like George Soros and Michael Moore, have an agenda for tearing down the American Fabric.

I hear that Brolin has nailed the portrayal of the verbally-crippled lush. The loves scenes between Dubya and Gannon are tastefully done and are sufficiently steamy to warrant a NC-17 rating.

For those of us over 35, we only have to look back to his HISTORICAL BUTCHER of JFK to know that anything this man does has no relation to FACT or TRUTH.

Let's be gracious and say....

Stone is a LIFELONG leftwing nut.

NWAM, I bet you would vote for W a third time if it was possible.

And oh yeah, Michael Moore making a movie about how people go bankrupt over lack of quality health care sure tore down that American fabric, eh? No truth to that one, huh?

Wow,directors like Michael Moore and Oliver Stone are exercising their Constitutional right of free speech but supposed people like "NOW WAIT A MINUTE" thinks they should be censored and branded as traitors. I wonder who the founding fathers would consider patriots and represent the "American Fabric"

The poster made a simple argument that Stone was a leftist and did not deign to undertake a hit job on Bill Clinton as there would likely beno financial backing for that in liberal Hollywood. That is a fair argument. But you dismiss it as "hate speech."

So are we now to take it that the definition of "hate speech" has been broadened to include anything leftist-liberals don't want to hear?

You seem a silly person.

Don't worry. Even though they're drunks and rowdy bums, the left wing media will love their movie. Four stars and 12 thumbs up anybody?
