Top political strategist Woody Allen thinks Obama would get much more done as dictator; No, really

Woody Allen

The notorious and formerly funny movie director Woody Allen is apparently frustrated with the cumbersome operations of American democracy too.

The one-time-father-now-husband-of-his-daughter tells the Spanish-language magazine La Vanguardia that the United States' Democratic Smoker-in-Chief could accomplish a whole lot more from his White House if he didn't have so many disorderly, annoying people objecting, distracting and criticizing him all the time.

Such social messiness has been known to occur in functioning democracies, even cinematic ones, although less often on celebrity-strewn movie sets under the direction of a dictatorial director.

"It would be good...if (Obama) could be dictator for a few years because he could do a lot of good things quickly," Allen is quoted as saying.

Allen is also said to have said:

I am pleased with Obama. I think he is brilliant. The Republican Party should get out of his way and stop trying to hurt him.

With healthcare and the economy now fully fixed, no doubt one area in urgent need of sweeping Obama-style reforms would be targeting movie reviewers who write negatively about Hollywood. Or about its politician favorites.

I think it' sworth remembering one thing about Woody Allen.

He is a comedian.

Fortunately, Woody Allen has less say than the Constitution.

This man Woody Allen is an idiot. This nation America is a democratic Republic. This is not a dictatorship.
Woddy Allen is a sad little man. Did he graduate?

So last week Woody was quoted as supporting Roman Polanski in the lastest child rape accusation, now he is saying dictatorship is good?

You can't cure stupid I guess.

Think of the possibilities. Lowering the age of sexual consent. Legalizing incest. Pardoning Polansiki. Everything Woody stands for.

so says the voice of insanity and a pedophile

Woody is a genius, but please stick to writing and directing and keep your silly political opinions to yourself.

Really? Really? Does NO ONE learn anything from history. Isn't this how Hitler rose to power? I swear these liberal elitist nuts are CRAZY and dangerous too! Also I love how the author of this article/editorial or whatever it is ends the first sentence of the piece like he/she agrees with what Allen is stating.

I for one THANK GOD for the operation of American democracy and how it works!!!!!

Well, morons, this is what eventually happens in a "democracy" as opposed to say, in a Constitutional republic. But please, let's keep pushing the democracy narrative until the country is a complete basketcase and only a dictator can, umm, "normalize" things.

This, from a perverted, child molester. People should really believe him. NOT!!!

suprising no one.

Maybe Woody, the pedophile, Allen should sit in an electric chair for a few minutes. Couldn't hurt, since his brain is already fried.

At least Woody is in step with Obama's autocratic agenda. Obama already thinks of himself as a dictator, and acts like one at every opportunity. Obama wants to be the Catiline of our nation. Liberals such as the pedophile Woody are worried because the American giant has been awakened, and he is peeved. The giant is the American is the patriots who rests until freedoms, rights, this nation's form of government, and the Constitution's guarantees are individually, or in this administrations agenda all under vicious attack. OH, BY THE WAY WOODY HOW IS THE MARRIAGE TO YOUR STEPDAUGHTER WORKING OUT?? YOUR A SICK MAN.

This man is horrific in so many ways. Did he forget the way the left had "so many disorderly, annoying people objecting, distracting and criticizing him all the time." how incredibly typical of the hypocritical liberal mindset.

Yeah, Woody and Roman should also have their own kiddie show.

Funny, comments are moderated on this post, but ol' Woody can spew this kind of crap and you print it !!

Woody Allen is a has been and an Old Guard Communist fool. NOTHING he spews out of his fol mouth should be taken seriously.

Would he feel the same about George W. Bush? I have a feling woody is making a joke even adding that Obama is brilliant? We are witnessing a complete disaster for our nation by a man who is so unprepared to be President he is making a mockery of the US worldwide. The only good thing about dictator Obama is that we would be free to have coup to force him to leave.

Is he senile or what??? We're a democracy Woodie. You don't run a country like you direct a movie.

Ideologues abound in Hollywood - the land of cookie-cutter groupthink. Useless people with disasterous personal lives feeling important doing useless things while spouting the usual nonsense in unwaving support for a dangerous, tyrannical president...I another tyrant once referred to them as "useful idiots."

That's what I would expect a demented sleaze bag to say -

Yes, because dictators are well known to relinquish their powers once they have achieved their goals. Woody Allen is beyond stupid.

Why don't they try to make Calif. it's own little country? They can make it a Dictatorship and Obama can be head. Woody and his daughter-wife can bring Obaman and his America hating wife over to rule. Pelosi can be 2nd in command and botox everyday and look at herself in the mirror. Al Gore can live in his new digs. They can bring Barney over and FREE THE REST OF OUR COUNTRY!!!!!

I never liked his films either. Woody Allen is an idiot.

This is why Rome didn't allow actors the vote.

Yah Woody, and we should all have to put on our underwear over our pants.

Note that he speaks his mind to a Spanish language magazine he hopes no one in the States will read. This guy is such a pervert, anyone else who went after his step-daughter would be bitin' a pillow in San Quentin right now. He's also calling for charges on Roman Polanski to be dropped...no surprise there. He needs to crawl back into the hole he squirmed out of.

Either Woody is perpetrating a really bad joke or he is a total moron. People with dictatorial rights is the very reason why we came to this land.

Woody is Bananas.

Any way we could send this clown to North Korea or Cuba so he can experience first hand the joys of living in a dictatorship that doesn't have to put up with "...so many disorderly, annoying people objecting, distracting and criticizing ... all the time"?

Woody Allen should stick to making bad movies

To allow Obama any powers at all, aside from those he is going to loose, is very simply and abjectly hideous. His sermonic delivery and having to read what he wants to say so as to make us all believe that only he is correct, ought to be proof enough that he is as close to being a dictator as he is going to get in our Free Country. If he creates any more diverions to cover up what he has yet to, or can not accomplish, he shouldn't be a dictator. He should give his daughters and wife a permanent tour of Kenya.

Its amazing how libs including Woody spoke often of Hitler style Bush yet now he embraces the insane notion of complete dictator for Obama. You libs are out of your mind

Why would anyone care what this moron thinks about anything?

Yet another "entertainer" filling the air with their most precious insights. Good grief, what was the man thinking? "Brilliant", now there's a useful descriptor of the POTUS. Political process is just so, so, so painfully slow. That's pretty much Hugo Chavez' opinion as well. Move Woody into the Glover/Penn category.

Why even post this? You trying to keep the censor busy?

Scratch a leftist, find a facist.

Oi, this is Woody Allen we're talking about. Woody Allen and "really" just don't go together.

Woody should stick to funny (and pathetic) movies.

Woody Allen is a blithering, bloviating idiot.

Woody Allen has fried his brain! How can any serious news organization even publish such off the wall comments? He's an idiot!

I've always suspected allen was nuts... now we know it for sure.... Gotta be crazy to give obama sole keys to our kingdom..... I'm praying for the end of this term... only 2 1/2 years till we can toss him out on his _ _ _

It's official. Woody has reached Sean Penn / Ted Turner status in my book of Over the Cliff liberal nut bags. Woody has finally gone off the deep end (probably from spending too much time between Paris / NYC and Hollywood. The pedophilia put me off and his movies were going the way of liberal elistist condonation of explitives every other word (since Mighty Aphrodite). His earlier movies are a great insight into the dysfunction lives of liberal elitist and their moral relativism around their sociaopathic and morally degenerate behaviors. But when I saw his input on Roman Polanski and now this excrement about Obama, I am dumping my collection in the nearest pile of feces so they can keep each other company. Woody has gone to that place where imbicile social and political statement to the likes of Sean Penn, The Sarandons, Geo. Looney (sp), Alec Baldwin, The Sheens, and Ted Turner (Turner is just certifiably nuts, so I grant him the boat for his lunacy). And I so much enjoyed Woody's early stuff. Sleeper is (or now was) my all time favorite. I could always hope to read in some Tinseltown rag that Woody is suffering from the beginning stages of dementia, but I know that would be too much to ask for. Au revoir, Woody!!!!

Hey He is a dictator you Idiot!

Is this the same honorable Woodie that was playing hide the woodie with his stepdaughter a few years ago !!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA you SCHMECKEL YOU PUTZ YOU

YEAH NO SURPRISE THAT THIS CHILD MOLESTER ARROGANT ELITE THINKS OILBAMA SHOULD BE OUR DICTATOR. THIS IS HOW BAD THEY HATE AMERICA'S SPECIAL FREEDOMS. ...........

SORRY FREAK, WE ARE BRINGING BACK BUSH AND CHENEY'S TO BE DICTATORS SO THAT LIBERALS LIKE YOU NEVER GET THE POWER AGAIN. OUR UNEMPLOYMENT IS ALMOST DOUBLING, IT WAS 7.2 WHEN BUSH LEFT WE ARE ROUNDING 17% REAL UNEMPLOYMENT, THIS FACIST FREAK HAS SPENT MORE IN 16 MONTHS THAN BUSH SPENT IN 5 YEARS WITH TWO DISASTERS...........

THIS FACIST FREAK DOUBLED THE WAR WOODY, WHERE ARE YOUR LEFTWINGNUTS PROTESTING THE AWFUL BUSH WAR............BARRY DOUBLED IT..........THE NATION WILL BE GREECE IN LESS THAN 12 MONTHS.........

WOODY NOT ONLY DON'T WE WANT YOUR FACIST DICTATOR TO HAVE ANY MORE POWER - IN 160 DAYS WE ARE THROWING EVERY DEMOCRAT OUT OF OFFICE, ....

OILBAMA IS WIPING THE DEMOCRAT PARTY - CREEPS LIKE YOU - OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH. 3 ELECTIONS WILL DRAIN THE CRAZY SWAMP.

And why exactly should anyone care what this deranged incestuous pedophile thinks?

Mind-blowing that the Times even allocated so much space to this gibberish?

This has to be sarcasm right? I mean, he can't be this crazy right?

What an Idiot! Our Country is going down the tubes and more of Obama - Wow! Stupid is as Stupid does!

Another idiot has spoken.

"If you are under 13 years of age you may read this message board, but you may not participate." How appropriate for this scum bag traitor that should be shunned as the fascist we all know him to be.


Woody is a complete nut. Any article that has the line “The one-time-father-now-husband-of-his-daughter” should be taken as seriously as “the red power ranger is strongly considering running for president”

Woody, do us a favor. Shut up, go away, and never come back, you are an embarrassment to the USA
