I’m glad I waited until the guy was gone before watching Oliver Stone take his best shot at one of the nation’s all-time worst Presidents. I don’t think I could have sat through two solid hours of being reminded that our country was in the hands of a doofus frat boy and his incompetent, greed-obsessed cronies. The only part of this I found more interesting than painful was the stuff about the relationship between the title character and his father, a man who for all his faults was a better President than his son. Mildly amusing
