Mortensen Defends Bush Criticism

The Lord Of The Rings star Viggo Mortensen refuses to apologize for his recent attack on President George W. Bush - maintaining the political leader is a "beast." The outspoken actor hit out at Bush after his controversial handling of Hurricane Katrina, but also disagrees with the President's Iraq policies, gossip site The Scoop reports. He fumes, "I'm not anti-Bush; I'm anti-Bush behavior. In other words, I'm against cheating, greed, cruelty, racism, imperialism, religious fundamentalism, treason, and the seemingly limitless capacity for hypocrisy shown by Bush and his administration. Cindy Sheehan (peace activist whose son was killed in Iraq) and how badly Katrina was bungled are two shots to the heart. I hope the beast does fall down soon."

Jeez. This wannabe Eurotrash is suffering from a major case of Bush Derangement Syndrome. That decadent dimwit should just go back to Europe.

The only people who take this loser's political views seriously are homosexual Democrat/Socialists activists who want to have sex with him.

If an actor wants to be a comedian all they have to do is talk without someone else writing their lines.

"Wannabe Eurotrash"--priceless.

Perfect example of someone who thinks that because he has a platform for his opinion, his opinion is meaningful, and informed. On Charlie Rose he compared Bush to the villain in Lord of the Rings--not Saddam or UBL, but Bush.

No wonder these actors need their lines written for them. Oh, right, Viggo's a "poet". That, too, makes him well-informed on world matters, such as the responsibility of the response to Katrina. (Nothing bad to say about Nagin, I noticed.)

"...maintaining the political leader is a "beast."

Did he lisp when he said this?

Tell you what...the next time 'ol Viggo decides to play a hardass SEAL (GI Jane) remind me to laugh and point hysterically at the screen.

Lets see he did well in the LOTR series because it started before we knew his politics and was an amazing movie series but since then what great box office draw has he had???? NONE!

The reason why hollywood is failing is because thespians such as Mr. Mortensen have testosterone envy. They are not men. Deep down inside they wish to be. They think just because they carry guns and play the part,we the consumer, fall for their role. They are dainty, sensitive and frail. Unlike former true American actors that epitomized the American man such as John Wayne, Charles Bronson and Clint Eastwood. They hate Bush and his policies because it is everything they can never relate to. Ask yourself. Who would you rather be in a fox hole with: Mike Ferrell & Jude Law or Bruce Willis and John Wayne. They must not be good actors because nobody is buying their product!

I'm not getting rid of my copy of LOTR.

There's too much good in The Professor's Epic to let it be ruined on account of one "man".

Viggo needs parsing I think.

I'm against cheating, Chicago democrats, Bill Clinton, Wisconsin democrats, Wash. state democrats, greed, you'll be doing films for free in the future then? cruelty, like the murderous rampages of gang leaders? racism, the slandering Michael Steele, Clarence Thomas, and Condi Rice? imperialism, the way the commies do it or the way the Euros do it?, religious fundamentalism, ...by flying planes into buildings? treason, I know, I hate Kerry and Fonda too!!! and the seemingly limitless capacity for hypocrisy... by the Hollywood left? Michael Moore? Jesse Jackson?

Well, the Duke probably smells pretty bad but I'd still take he and Willis. :-)

"Viggo needs parsing I think." (Yup!)


Another hollywood wacko shows us the intelligence of the
liberal selfrighteously blind. None.

Their socialist Utopia has dissappeared and they are angry!

Vigo, it's our country. Love it or leave it.
Do a USO tour in Ramadhi, Euro-gurly man!

Then go earn your cash in Norway where the sun don't shine.
