John Cusack vs. Bill O'Reilly this morning

| 15 Comments | No TrackBacks


John Cusack this morning on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" show.

Evanston native John Cusack appeared on MSNBC this morning to chat about his new MoveOn.org ads — in which he makes the argument that it's difficult to tell the policies of George W. Bush and John McCain apart — as well as his new Iraq war-related movie. He takes a hearty swipe at cable talk fiend Bill O'Reilly in the process.

Cusack returns to MSNBC tonight, on "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" at 7 p.m.

Democrats= Socialists, Unamerican,Killers of the Unborn, Hateful,Liers and just plain Ignorant.

You say what you want but I cann't say what I want or I am a bigot or another favorite liberal word racist.

Have a nice day!

"God there are some bitter hateful conservatives on this website."

Republican Family Values:
Apathy, Callousness, Greed, Self Serving Self Interest,
Narcissism, Inhumanity, Death, Looting, Plundering.

Another washed up Hollywood blabber month actor who tries to tell me how to live my life. These are the same people who do not want the press to take pictures of them but yet they search out the press when they pass off there socialist views.

"Say what you will about George W. Bush, he has at least stuck with his convictions, agree or disagree. John McCain has done the same"

Come on now, who doesn't realize that GWB is the King Of Gaffs and goober statements. The fact that you seem to keep up with so many in such great detail is somewhat disturbing.

Seriously now, that's all you could come up with from my entire entry? If you're going to make a statement, please make an actual point.

If you watch nothing but Bill O'Reilly, you're a misinformed moron. period. Mr. Cusack is a talented, brave, intelligent and articulate and a true American.

"Say what you will about George W. Bush, he has at least stuck with his convictions, agree or disagree. John McCain has done the same"

You're correct Bush stuck to his convictions - that's why we have the America we have today and McCain can't wait to continue running ths country in the ground.

True Obama doesn't speak as well as Bush (Thank God!) - I'll refresh your memory;

1.) There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again."
—Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 17, 2002

2.) "Too many good docs are getting out of the business. Too many OB-GYNs aren't able to practice their love with women all across this country." —Poplar Bluff, Mo., Sept. 6, 2004 (Watch video)

3.) "Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we." —Washington, D.C., Aug. 5, 2004

Bush is such a strong speaker - you're right he speaks at an intelligent pace, not like a third grader reading from a cue card - but more like a 3rd grader without a cue card.

Sorry to all 3rd graders that I may have insulted by comparing you to Bush!

'Bitter and hateful conservatives'? Oh really. I'm for gay marriage and against drilling for oil in certain coastal regions. I believe alternative energy needs to be discovered and funded. As for 'racist'? That word has been contrived by people like Dukes and Rev. Wright, both of whom (and seemingly yourself) have chosen to set aside the fact that we are all one 'Human' race. Check your history and you will see that it was the Democratic Party which founded the KKK. It's the Democratic Party who passed the "Jim Crow" laws designed to suppress the rights of their fellow man. That same party today often decrees that the government knows what is best for you and should run most aspects of your life. Even some Republicans have taken up that mantra. What it leads to is a government that controls far too many aspects of our life and thinks it knows best. We still call such governments 'Socialist' and 'Communist'.

So, Mr. Alex, while you're waiting for the crosses to burn again, realize that I, along with millions of others, don't care of the gender or skin color of a candidate. We still hold the hope that the 'Declaration of Independence' offered us. Not the bitterness and hatred offered up every night by Olberman, who's only goal seems to be promoting himself. What we subscribe to is the notion that "black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness". The words of Martin Luther King, Jr. (a registered Republican, by the way) that too many have set aside and forgotten. Ponder that, and then go out and get some genuine ideals of your own, not someone else's diatribe.

God there are some bitter hateful conservatives on this website. Do you all wear pointy bedsheets over yourselves at night? I wonder which one of you will burn the first cross on Obama's front yard? Speak up David Dukes of the world. Looks like you all united under one party, one god, and one racisty bigoted ideology. Smile, you just proved Rev. Wrights view point!!

Oh, and Cusack's new movie? Most likely it will bomb just as every other 'Iraq War Protest Film' has.

"At least Obama can think and express it in English" ???

Really? Obama takes forever to get to a point. If you give him a speach to read he does very well. However, if you see him in a one on one interview, he stumbles through every conceived and contrived point that the left has to offer. He has no ideas of his own. Say what you will about George W. Bush, he has at least stuck with his convictions, agree or disagree. John McCain has done the same, and can speak at an intelligent pace, not like a third grader reading from a cue card such as Obama and Hillary.

As for O'Reilly, he at least takes the time to confront 'all' sides of an issue. Olberman is just a bitter idiot. A bitter idiot with really low ratings.

Cusack rocks.

Good one "Michael", I see you swallowed and can recite all the GOP apologist sophist rhetoric.

Bush and co have at the least shamed America but in truth have hurt the world, McCain would just continue that.

As for O'Reilly, that self-aggrandising, bad tempered fool has long since lost the plot and what is worse, hasn't realised that he's been reading a script all along.

At least Obama can think and express it in English.

Commie...funny, quick, hide under the desk kids!

Call me an '80s baby (even though I was born in the '70s), but I prefer the John Cusack from the John Hughes movies and other classics.

How can you deny the laughs of Lane Meyer from 1985 cult classic "Better Off Dead" or the sensitive side shown by Lloyd Dobler in Cameron Crowe's excellent "Say Anything" (1989) -- which is one of my favorite movies of all time?

And, even though some panned them, I'm still partial to both 2000's "High Fidelity," in which Cusack played record store owner Rob Gordon (living, loving and lamenting in Chicago to boot), and 2001's "Serendipity," in which Cusack's Jonathan Trager made us all believe in the power of love.

Cusack might want to learn how to read a ratings book. O'Reilly CRUSHES Keith O. in the ratings EVERY ratings period. And call me crazy, but I think John McCain has just a little more experience in military matters than actor wanna be activist Cusack when it comes to debating the GI bill. McCain knows first-hand and has the scars to prove it. Cusack gets his info from that Commie rag the NY Times. I would use the cliche "shut up and act", but that would subject us all to more of his bad acting...at least the Dixie Chicks can sing...
