'Anarchist' Woody Harrelson says he dislikes all politicians

The 51-year-old “Cheers” alum, who stars in the new movie "Now You See Me," continues, “People compare Obama to Lyndon Johnson, but I think a better comparison is between Obama and Nixon. Because Nixon came into office saying he was going to pull out of Vietnam, and then he escalated the war. A lot of us were led to believe that Obama was the peace president, but there are still, I think, 70,000 troops in Afghanistan.”

The Texas-born Academy Award nominee sums up his views in response to a question from the men’s mag about whether he wants to get more involved in politics: “No. I don't believe in politics. I'm an anarchist, I guess you could say. I think people could be just fine looking after themselves.”
