Oliver Stone: Obama No Better Than Bush

Filmmaker Oliver Stone, director of big screen conspiracy movies and dark films about presidents John F. Kennedy, Richard Nixon and George W. Bush, told HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher Friday that he won’t be taking on Ronald Reagan as a subject for a biopic.

“By doing the ‘W’ movie, I kind of put all my efforts behind dumbness,” Stone said, referring to Reagan.

"Nixon always said Reagan was a dumb son of a b---- and, you know, I think that he was. He later added, “And you know, I really think George W. is dumber.”

Stone, who executive produced a 2001 television movie, "The Day Reagan Was Shot," also asserted: “I do think Nixon is the father of Reagan, and I think Reagan's the father of Bush. There's sort of a very strong line.”

Stone also characterized President Barack Obama as no better than his predecessor, referring to Obama’s early presidency as “a sneak Bush administration with different words.”

Stone’s other films include “Platoon,” “Born on the Fourth of July,” “Alexander the Great,” “World Trade Center,” and “Wall Street,” which he is working on a sequel to.
