Oliver Stone’s “W”

What ever happened to respect for the President of the United States?  What ever happened to the United States of America?

From Saturday Night Live spoofs, to so-called journalistic documentaries by pseudo-journalists like Micheal Moore, to bias television coverage and now, a film – due out in October – about a sitting President that will leave little question about the writer’s or directors intent, not to mention the timing.

Now don’t get me wrong. I am not a big fan of President Bush or his particular policies. However, he is still the President of the United States and deserves a least a level of respect due his office.

I know America is the self proclaimed “land of freedom” and free speech has it’s day, but this is pushing the edge of the envelope. Besides, is would seem the only people interested in this film would be detractors from the President and why in the world would they want to spend their money to see a film about someone they dislike in the first place. Supporters of Bush would not be interested either for obvious reasons.  So where’s the market for this film? Is it “undecided voters”? I would hardly think so. Why would they make up their mind based on a fantasy film. Oh, that’s right, they will be making up their minds based on a fantasy anyway. Either the fantasy that Obama is not a socialist or McCain is too old to be President and a clone of Bush.

It is bad enough that we have had to suffer through almost two years of political BS, now the message is being taken to the theater. Good grief, is there no safe haven from all of this?

    I could not agree with you more. This film has been, for me, the straw that broke the camels back, so to speak. For 4 years (maybe more) I have be listening to people say things about Bush, that in my opinion cross a line. And now its ok to turn those comments into a movie? While the president is still in office none the less. I value freedom of speech and Oliver Stone is free to make this movie, but I am also free to feel that he crossed a line, and free to tell the world, THIS MOVIE CROSSES A LINE!

    Now that Obama has been elected, I don’t like it, I am not ok with it, but I will show the office the respect that it deserves, unlike the classless “bush-haters” out there.
