When the reported noticed that Cusack is often straightforward about current events, whereas others stars tend to skirt arguable subjects, he stated: "No, I don't care about any of that sh*t. All those people are just full of hot air and networking and stuff."

Cusack added that Obama had "extended and hardened the cement on a lot of Bush\s post-9/11 Terror, Inc. policies, so he's very similar to Bush in every way that way." He pointed out" "Since 9/11 there are magic words like "terror," and if you use magic words, you can justify any power grab you want."
