 "What did Bush do on 9/11? He ran away and hid. Even Reagan knew more about leadership than that, and he was as bad a symbol of America as I can think of, off-hand. But at least he's been in enough cowboy movies to know he had to come out and stand on top of the rubble and be seen shaking his fist or something."

 

They tell us we're going to war and no one's saying 'Bullshit' loud enough. And the language! Listen to the language! 'Evil.' 'Evil'? 'Nexus of evil'? 'Evil-doer'? That's my favourite, 'evil-doer'! What's wrong with their vocabulary: couldn't they come up with 'schmuck'?"

President George Bush “is just dim," actor George Clooney claims in the upcoming

February issue of GQ magazine, the New York Post’s “Page Six” revealed on Wednesday. The Post writers relayed how GQ reports that Clooney, probably  best known for playing a doctor on ER and as the star of the Oceans Eleven movie, believes Mario Cuomo should be President, keeps a photo of Jimmy Carter's ER set visit on display in his bathroom and “likens Newt Gingrich to a 'dinosaur,’ laughing, 'the man has no arms.’"

 

"The problem is we elected a manager, and we need a leader," Clooney tells the magazine. "Let's face it: Bush is just dim."

As first reported by syndicated columnist Liz Smith, Clooney opined at a National Board of Review event that "Charlton Heston announced again today that he is suffering from

Alzheimers." When asked by Ms. Smith if the remark went over the line, Clooney replied: "I don't care. Charlton Heston is the head of the NRA; he deserves whatever anyone says about him."

“Go through the history of time. During the Salem witch hunt, the liberals thought there was no such thing as witches, and the conservative view was ‘They’re witches and they all have to die.’ I don’t argue with conservatives over morality. I don’t preach morality, certainly, but I won’t be told that liberal is immoral.”
— Actor George Clooney in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine’s Peter Travers, 40th anniversary issue.

Denouncing President Bush for planning to kill “innocent people” in Iraq, actor George Clooney insisted on Monday's Charlie Rose show on PBS that pursuing war with Iraq while not doing so with North Korea illustrates how “we’re picking on people we can beat.”  

 

Near the end of Rose's January 20 show, Clooney asserted that he's “strongly opposed” to Bush's Iraq policy. He argued:  “We moved away from what we were going after which was the al-Qaeda and there’s no connection between al-Qaeda and Iraq, which we know, we spent a lot of time trying to prove it and it didn’t happen. And we’re going to go into a war and we’re going to kill a lot of innocent people.”

 

He elaborated: “First and foremost is the idea that we’re going to kill a lot innocent people, that’s what we’re going to do. That’s what we did before and it’s what we’re going to do again. And, the truth is, we’re going to go in an negotiate with North Korea because they have a bomb, because we don’t want to get involved in a fight that could result in a real problem.”

 

Rose: “They could level Seoul, Korea.”

Clooney: “They could level it. They probably can’t reach, you know, maybe, you know, maybe Seattle. I don’t know. It would be tough, it would be tough to get to the American coast. But the point is. We’re picking on people we can beat, you know, and we’re saying 'okay, we’ll go get them.’ Now, there’s no question about the fact that Saddam Hussein is a  jerk, he’s a rat, so are a lot of these guys. The question is are we going to try and negotiate, are we going to try and talk to these people and find out ways without jumping in and killing people first.”

 

Referring to how the Bush team is getting other nations to go along, Clooney suggested: "The government itself is running exactly like the Sopranos and they sit back and they make deals. And they say okay, 'I’m going do this: France, you're

getting the pipelines.'...
