Leftist filmmaker slams Obama as “weak man”
Leftist filmmaker Oliver Stone slammed President Barack Obama during an event this past weekend, accusing Obama of selling out as soon as he got in office while exhibiting a stunning “lack of spine.”

During a panel discussion entitled ‘Imperial Overreach and the National Security State” which took place at the International Students for Liberty Conference in Washington, D.C., Stone accused Obama of breaking all of his pre-election promises.
“Something happened because none of the things he promised . . . transparency, a government that would reconsider the war on terror and these programs . . . none of that happened, none of it,” said Stone.
“The man stunned us with a lack of spine,” the director added. “He is a weak man.”
Asserting that Obama sold immediately when he “took the private option over the public option,” Stone noted that Obama’s choice of advisors, Robert Gates, whom he labeled a “criminal,” and Hillary Clinton, made it clear right away that President Obama would be a completely different entity than candidate Obama.
“On everything he backed down,” Stone said. “I was stunned.”
This is by no means the first time that Stone has publicly chastised Obama.
