Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey — whose most recent film includes the psychological thriller, “House of Cards,” about an unethical congressman — said in a recent interview that most Americans just aren’t grasping President Obama’s greatness.

“President Obama will go down as having passed some of the most historic bills in the history of this country,” he said, in a recent talk with Hot Press magazine. “That despite constant knee-jerk opposition from the Republicans. A lot of people don’t realize how much he’s done in the most difficult circumstances.”

Mr. Spacey is far less appreciative of Congress.

“It’s maybe interesting for an American audience that sat through the most non-productive Congress in the history of the United States, in terms of bills passed, to watch a fictional show [like ‘House of Cards’] where some bills actually get passed,” he said, Politico reported.
