Obama: 2016 – A Must See

Elphaba and I went to see the Dinesh D’Souza movie Obama: 2016 last night.  If you haven’t seen this, you should do so.  Even if you are deeply engaged politically and you think you know a lot about Obama, this movie will still provide some enlightening moments.

What we found interesting was that the theater was nearly full, at a multiplex where we have seen first-run thrillers recently (Spider-Man and The Bourne Legacy) playing to almost-empty theaters.  The audience was diverse in age and ethnicity, although there were few young people (meaning in their ‘teens and early twenties).  I overheard one man saying “I never knew that about Obama.”  This seemed to me to be a person who was not a “true-believer” conservative, but a person who merely came to the movie wanting to know more, and boy did he get it.

Recommend that all your friends see this.  If you have friends who voted for Obama in 2008, especially try to get them to see it.  The movie is not a “bomb-throwing,” “foam-at-the-mouth” diatribe, but rather a sober, calm, clear look at what Obama’s background and influences were.  No tin-foil-hat stuff here, just interviews with highly respectable people like Shelby Steele, and even one with Obama’s half-brother in Kenya.  He was very articulate, and calmly recited his perception of Obama.  Very powerful stuff.  The movie was produced by the Oscar-winning producer of Schindler’s List, so the production quality is first-rate.

Five stars.




America’s poor – richest in the world

As a follow-up to my earlier post on “Meet the leeches”, here is this video by Bill Whittle.  He absolutely nails it.  As Dinesh D’Souza said an acquaintance in Bombay told him: “I really want to move to a country where the poor people are fat.” I once personally observed the entitlement mentality in action. Someone in line in front of me at the grocery store was trying to buy dog food on food stamps (as they were then called). The cashier stated that food stamps couldn’t be used to buy non-human food. The person then asked their partner to go back to the meat department and get some ground chuck for the dog. WTF?
