Mickey Rourke stands up for Bush

Posted on January 14, 2009


I gained a little bit more respect for recent Golden Globe winner Mickey Rourke when he spoke up for beleaguered President Bush. He made the comments in an article to GQ magazine, and one of my favorite quotes is this:

“I don’t give a —- who’s in office, Bush or whoever, there is no simple solution to this problem [terrorism] … I’m not one of those who blames Bush for everything.”

A remarkably mature perspective, one that I hope pressure from his liberal Hollywood peers doesn’t force Mr. Rourke to recant. I don’t know Rourke’s overall political philosophy, but it is nice to hear an entertainer that doesn’t just spew blind hatred for all things conservative and all things Bush.
