Redford desperate to see Bush's departure

Give your rating:

Washington (ANI): Oscar-winner Robert Redford has revealed that is eagerly waiting for Barack Obama's presidential inauguration on January 20 because he just can't wait to see 'lame-duck' George W Bush leave the White House The Hollywood legend is very excited about Bush?s departure, and optimistic about America's future.

"I'm personally excited just because I'm glad to see the gang that couldn't shoot straight get out of there. I'm glad to see them gone," Contacmusic quoted him as saying. "You've got a lame-duck guy going out, but he sure has done a lot of quacking in the last while. So therefore, the sooner they''re gone, the better, and therefore, I'm very excited by the change that's coming," he added.

Redford also hopes that the arts will receive more government funding from the Obama administration. "They (the arts) were fighting the political machine of the extreme right that saw art as some kind of threat," he said. "So I think that's going to change. What I would like to see is, a country like ours should certainly be subsidising, a little bit more than it is, art in general. Other countries do. They've cut it down to the bone. There's practically nothing left," he added.

Redford has already used Utah-based Sundance Film Festival, which he co-founded in 1978, as a platform to publicly criticise Bush in the past.
