Oliver Stone Turns on Obama

Liberal director calls President 'weak man' with 'lack of spine'


Hollywood director and ardent liberal Oliver Stone attacked President Obama from the left this past weekend, saying the President reneged on his campaign promises and has a "lack of spine".

"Something happened because none of the things he promised…transparency, a government that would reconsider the war on terror and these programs… none of that happened. None of it," Stone said to a Washington, DC panel.

Stone called Obama a "weak man" who sold out once he "took the private option over the public option," in his healthcare reforms. Stone also labeled Obama’s first Secretary of Defense Robert Gates a "criminal", and said that once Hillary Clinton was tapped as Secretary of State he knew that President Obama would be completely different from candidate Obama.
