Dick Gregory: Bush will not 'finish his term out'
By Robert "Rob" Redding Jr.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 08, 2006, 11:20 p.m. - Controversial comedian and activist Dick Gregory today said he would not be surprised if a UK film's fictional assassination of President Bush comes true and he does not "finish his term out."
Gregory, a harsh critic of the United States and one-time presidential candidate, told a talk radio show host the documentary-style film "Death of a President" may be on target.
"And when this happens this here documentary is going to look like they was prophesying," Gregory told XM 169 The Power Host Mark Thompson.
Gregory also told Thompson he is already on record saying Bush will "get busted" and have to leave office early.
"He is not going to finish his term out," he told Thompson, who was broadcasting live from the Congressional Black Caucus' 36th Annual Legislative Conference being held in the District.

The 90-minute movie is directed by Briton Gabriel Range. Range's film is scheduled to premier at the Toronto International Film Festival this weekend and air on British cable later this year.
"The film combines archival footage of Bush as well as computer generated images, and does so in a way that, some say, makes the assassination scene look shockingly real," according to the Los Angeles Times.
