John Cusack is not thrilled with President Barack Obama‘s foreign policy.
During a recent interview the actor expressed his disappointment with how the 44th president of the United States has handled certain key issues.
He also maintained that Obama’s not so different from his predecessor George W. Bush:
“Well, Obama has certainly extended and hardened the cement on a lot of Bush’s post-9/11 Terror Inc. policies, so he’s very similar to Bush in every way that way. His domestic policy is a bit different, but when you talk about drones, the American Empire, the NSA, civil liberties, attacks on journalism and whistleblowers, he’s as bad or worse than Bush.
He hasn’t started as many wars, but he’s extended the ones we had, and I don’t even think Dick Cheney or Richard Nixon would say the president has the right to unilaterally decide whom he can kill around the world. On Tuesdays, the president can just decide whom he wants to kill, and you know, since 9/11 there are magic words like “terror,” and if you use magic words, you can justify any power grab you want.”
Yes, but who’s the better painter???
Let’s hope Obama takes up painting after his presidency so we can compare!
Do YOU agree with John’s opinion of the Commander-in-Chief???
