James Cromwell explains and defends the "formulation" and validity of the movie "W". Sheds a bit of insight as to why the little fucktard turned out to be the shithead he is today:
Grampy Prescott was an alcoholic, a fact which was hidden and denied by the family and led to HW's inability to deal with Dubya's lifelong douchebaggery and bullshitiousness.
Dubya grew up thinking his old man was a weakling. Which would explain his fascination with all things Reagan, including his fake ranch in Crawford, where he gets to live out his childhood dream of being a cowboy. (except he's scared shitless of horses)
Some things skip a generation: Dubya is an alcoholic. With a Midas touch that turns all things to shit and dreams of following in Grampy's foot steps and overthrowing the government -- ripping it all for billions to avenge Grampy and enrich his cronies at the very least.
Cromwell goes into his personal research and defends his and Stone's positions and versions of Dubya's life. One book he gave a lot of weight was Kitty Kelly's, "The Family."
