Oliver Stone Votes for 'Bush' Project

I cannot believe that Oliver Stone is going to make a movie about Bush. One needs only to do a Web search for "Stone" and "Bush" to find plenty of the director's critical comments about the Bush administration's invasion of Iraq. Despite that, the director said he's not looking to make an anti-Bush polemic. His goal is to use seminal events in Bush's life to explain how he came to power.

WTF! He came to power because this is exactly what dear old daddy's money bought him. I would think that it might be better to make this movie in a hundred years when everyone who had to survive his Administration was gone. Stone declined to give his personal opinion of the president. Perhaps Stone is tired of his career as a Director and is trying to sabatoge himself, perhaps he's on drugs. Who knows.

Stone declined to give his personal opinion of the president.

"I can't give you that, because the filmmaker has to hide in the work," Stone said. "Here, I'm the referee, and I want a fair, true portrait of the man. How did Bush go from an alcoholic bum to the most powerful figure in the world? It's like Frank Capra territory on one hand, but I'll also cover the demons in his private life, his bouts with his dad and his conversion to Christianity, which explains a lot of where he is coming from. It includes his belief that God personally chose him to be president of the United States, and his coming into his own with the stunning, preemptive attack on Iraq. It will contain surprises for Bush supporters and his detractors."

Is it just me or have many of our Politician's lately saying that they have been "called by God" to be Politicians? Can anyone tell me when God became interested in Politics?
