Robert Redford on Bush- Spoiled, Narrow, Limited and Arrogant

28 June 2005 at 1:34:52 PM

From Scarborough Country

SCARBOROUGH:  And why do you think the Bush administration has such a blind spot on the environment? 

REDFORD:  I mean, look, this is a personal opinion, so it will have to sit that way.  I‘m not a politician.  I think you have a leader that, in my opinion, comes from a privileged place, is somewhat spoiled, narrow, limited, and arrogant.

And that‘s my personal view.  And the policies that come from that, the people he puts around him, attitudes about the environment display a kind of ignorance, more than anything else.  They seem to be enjoying shredding the environment to create support for something that might be yesterday‘s news, rather than tomorrow‘s future. 

So that‘s hard for me to witness.  I don‘t think you‘re going to change it because of the arrogance.  They seem to enjoy it.  I don‘t know beyond that why this is.  I think that the thinking in Washington right now is old.  It seems like they‘re operating in the ‘50s rather than the year 2000.  It‘s a new world we‘re living in and a new future.  And a lot of our resources have already disappeared.  And communities are now living closer together.  Cultures are living closer together.  Somebody better start paying attention to foreign culture and history and what the environment really means, rather than something treated like an enemy. 

It just is mystifying.
