    if there making fun of him shame on this country. he is the president of the united states and he’s not dumb like people think he is. that is so disrepectuful and you know why he isn’t stopping them from making this movie because he could care less what those stupid liberal celebs think of him. God forbid if barack obama was president they wouldn’t make a movie like this about him cause he’s black! whats wrong with you people!

  • emma

    lmao at the tag line

  • Ekaterina

    Um, it’s not just the celebs who hate him–it’s the whole country. He has the lowest approval rating ever for a president. Even his own party hates him! He’s brought shame to the White House and should not be respected at all. Furthermore, its going to take decades to undo the damage he’s done to this country. This movie is likely, merely, pointing this out. And everyone, I mean everyone, liberal or conservative, will be effected by the damage.

    And he is definitely as dumb as people think he is. The man was a C student at both Yale and Andover.

  • Hey Jared

    Thought it was Josh not John… presidency of George W. Bush, played by John Brolin.

    lol . i feel so bad for bush .
    “LEAVE HIM ALONE”, haha .
    he only has a little long left .

  • Kitzy

    Ummm i dont care about this movie either way…just letting Emma know that all those celebs listed up there are not in the movie but participating in the stand up to cancer fundraiser. So….you have much in common with Bush, as you both have difficulty reading sentences.
    And if helping raise funds for cancer makes one a liberal, sign me up.

  • Jane

    In light of the fact that he has committed war crimes, treason and has – and still is – shredding our constitution, he’s getting off lightly with just a Hollywood film. Who ARE these 29% who still defend this guy?! He’s the biggest disaster this country has seen in it’s history. Stop calling liberals names and get informed people!

  • tina

    McCain = Bush

    Two dopes who can’t find their own dicks without two hands and a map!

  • brock

    Bush is a WAR CRIMINAL and an embarrassment to all Americans and the United States of America.

    Bush should be tried, convicted and imprisoned.

  • depeche

    God, will anybody watch this s***?? I would rather watch a goat eating the grass all day long …

  • Brown and proud

    as much as i cannot STAND G.W. i will probably not see this film (i am still THAT mad about the last 8 years)

  • Lillianne

    This is going to be much better than I expected. It was filmed in my hometown and everyone associated with the film was surprised by Josh Brolin and his performance. Keep an open mind until you can see for yourself.

  • victoria

    Won’t watch the movie. BUT, how funny that Jennifer Anniston is promoting and helping the very organization that she will need down the road herself… THE CANCER SUPPORT GROUP… After all of her chain smoking and tanning she is heading in the right direction. One of the other will get her, SOONER or SOONER !!!!!!!!!

  • remember da truth

    What do you mean disrespectful to make fun of the president? You do realize, don’t you, that he has shown no respect for the American people?

    Being American is having the right to question and attack our leaders and demand our will be heard. If you think just because he’s the president we should shut up and have our rights trampled, you are in the wrong country. Perhaps you wanted to be in Iraq before Saddam was taken out? Or in Cuba? Or in some other dictatorship?

    Personally, Americans who love this country want it to be better than it is. If that means being liberal enough to speak up and try to make this country we love the best it can be, then liberals will save this country,

    I would like inform you that Scarlett Johansson (actress)actually is a clone from original person,who has nothing with acting career.Clone was created illegally by using stolen biomaterial. Original person is very nice(not d**n sexy),most important-CHRISTIAN young lady!I’ll tell you more,those clones(it’s not only one)made in GERMANY-world leader manufacturer of humans clones,it is in Ludwigshafen am Rhein,N. Bavaria, Mr. Helmut Kohl home town.You can’t even imaging the scale of the cloning activity.But warning! H. Kohl clone staff 100% controlling their clones spreading around the world,they are very accurate with that, some of them are still NAZI type disciplined and mind controlled clones,be careful get close with clones you will be controlled too.Original family did not authorize any activity with stolen biological materials,no matter what form it was created,it all needs back to original family control to Cedars-Sinai MedicalCenter in LA.Original Scarlett is not engage,by the way!

  • just me

    Serge! WTF?? Take your meds and lay down!

  • janet

    I understand that GWB has a very low rating and 70 percent of Americans think the country is headed in the wrong way. However, from a foreigner’s point of view, this doesn’t look reflect well on America. Remember, YOU voted for him? TWICE? He’s done a terrible job with the presidency, BELIEVE ME I SEE THAT, but that doesn’t mean you make fun of him with seemingly sarcastic poster of a multi-million dollar Hollywood movie. If the movie gives a constructive criticism without the crazy liberalism, which I highly doubt, maybe I’ll change my mind.

  • Anna

    Hey Janet,
    Who gives a crap what you think. You’re not American. I voted for him twice – imagine if that dope Gore was in during 9/11 — they would have bombed L.A., and these dumb asses would be fighting a war physically, not with words… Wait, bomb L.A. – hmmmmmmmmm.

    Anywho, you know what’s extremely funny – Clinton gets no movie! LOL! He must be so pissed off. Even if this is a poke at Bush.
    Let’s see, here’s the sum and substance of a Clinton movie – A man of many blows – no, no – a man who sold the white house to China, hmm – no – a man who did not have sex with that woman – bingo! LOLOLOL. That’s all that big dick will be remembered for. What does Kid Rock say, “we tag teamed that b*tch at 30,000 feet”

  • tina

    Just because George W Bush happens to be president of the USA (there is considerable evidence many votes were switched in both of the past 2 elections, but as he controlled the Executive branch Bush and his Republican cronies were able to stamp any real investigation) – just because he may be president does not mean he automatically is above criticism and insult.

    I will be seeing a preview of this movie tomorrow, and I am looking forwards to it. I do not think I will be surprised, but I may learn more reasons to dislike and oppose George W Bush and his political machinery.

    I did not love Bill Clinton, but at least that man did not dig us into a 10 Trillion Dollar deficit (he worked to get us a surplus, remember?) or get us involved in a war on the other side of the world that costs the US 10 Billion $$ a month and has killed thousands of American soldiers and support staff and a Million+ people “on the other side” who were just living their lives in Iraq until the sociopathic George W Bush went after Saddam Hussein (who has no connection whatsoever to 9/11).

    I wish you right-wing people would try to get your facts correct. You sound like fools and I understand why 23% of America still supports the crazy commander in chief we have now. You are all sheep who will follow that fool off the cliff, your noses firmly pressed up his butt.
