Has anyone seen the ads for a new political film on Obama called "2016"?

I've seen the trailer run on MSNBC "Morning Joe" commercials and it looks like a hit piece.

The narrator is D'nesh D'Souza, who, apparently, has gone "around the world" interviewing

people who know, and or are related to, President Obama.

Why I feel it's a hit piece, is that D'Souza is a known conservative and

it ends up with a large picture of Obama with a voice over saying:

"Obama: You may love him or hate him, but you don't KNOW him"!

Same old "Who's the Kenyan"?, birther type bullshit we've come to know and hate.

It's scary and creepy, though, so close to the election and it's reminiscent of another

conservative hit piece about Hillary (I forget the title) which threatened to open

just before the LAST presidential election, but was ruled against by a judge who objected to

it on the grounds of it being too close to the election.

5. I've seen the ads several times now

and yes, it definitely looks like a hit piece. I checked it out at IMDB, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2247692/ and the comments and reviews were interesting. Looks like a bunch of bogus comments.

One comment subject line: "A movie for Independent Thinking American (Open-Minded)" - yeah right.

"This is a documentary of Obama's vision for America. It talks about the people that influence his thinking. Excerpts from his memoir " Dreams from my father " were used to follow his journey from childhood to manhood. The setting goes from Hawaii; Indonesia; Kenya; United Kingdom; New York. It explains what his father's dream is all about and how it shaped his character. It shows the people that were his mentors; friends that he associates with.

It also concisely explain in detail the action that he takes which confuses a lot of pundits especially the people who truly love this country (USA) whether they're liberals or conservatives.

This is a riveting and thought-provoking movie. It shows where our country is headed. We can always agree and disagree with issues; we can even replace political majority from one party over another... but as an American; we only have one COUNTRY and it is IRREPLACEABLE.

This is a MUST-SEE movie for open-minded individual. " Love him, Hate him but Do You Really Know HIM?"



Sounds more like a promo than a user's review!

22. Yes, and I'm worried about its effects because it's so close to the election.

The Right Wing will flock to it, and Dems won't believe it, even if they do see it,

but I hope it doesn't affect the Independents.


P.S. Judging by your description, it does sound particularly bogus,

because Obama Sr. had MINIMAL influence on the Prez as they only had

one meeting when Barack Jr. was a child...I just hope most people

seeing the movie understand that....As for that "not knowing him" shit,

I'd say we ALL know him a hell of a lot better than anyone knows Romney!

33. That is such phony meme

"Not knowing him", as if he is some mysterious stranger that just suddenly appeared. There are people out there who buy into all the conspiracy crap, though I believe most of them want to have a reason to not trust him.

I share your concern about Independents. Between this movie and the OPSEC Team ads, it is starting to get ugly. I guess we knew it was coming - been there before, but it still unnerves me.

Oh, I checked out this Special Ops OPSEC Education Fund and what a surprise to find out they are a brand new organization, a "social welfare organization" even. Of course, their donors are a secret.

37. Yes, it is...A former friend (I hated to make her "former but she kept up the RW stuff), said

that once, shortly after he'd been elected and I almost blew up at her.

"What do you MEAN you "don't know anything about him", I asked, and then I went on about

his books, all that's been written about him, etc...It's ridiculous, and what makes it even more so, is his

demonstrated warmth with people..He's witty, good-natured and seems very approachable to me

When you see him with crowds, he's always smiling, reaching out, shaking hands,

and such, not exactly the "mysterious" type.

P.S. What is Special Ops OPSEC Education Fund?..I haven't heard of it.

7. It's a Swiftboat job, for sure.

I wouldn't expect anything less from that tool D'Souza. He's the guy who wrote a book about Obama's "rage," which was the source of Gingrich's crap about Obama being a Kenyan anti-colonialist. D'Souza also blamed the American left for 9/11. He's a total douche, and I expect the movie to be a hit job every bit as mendacious as the swiftboaters' garbage about Kerry. I think Obama's campaign is much more likely to hit back this time, though.

12. Saw the ad watching

the Rev yesterday - "...from the producer of 'Schnidler's List'..."

Spielberg had 2 other producers. Gerald R Molen and Branko Lustig. I'm going with Molen - who is an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

"...In 2012 Molen was prohibited from speaking to high school students in Montana by the principal who described him as a "right wing conservative." The cancellation of his presentation resulted in widespread criticism of the principal. The school district superintendent regretted the principal's decision saying, "...thatís not how we treat people.""...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerald_R._Molen

Lustig - During World War II, as a child he was imprisoned for two years in Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen. Most members of his family perished in the death camps throughout Europe, including his grandmother who was killed in the gas chamber, while his father was killed in Čakovec by Hungarians on March 15, 1945. Lustig mother survived the Holocaust and was reunited with him after the war.

14. it has a major flaw which limits its effectiveness

it doesn't make sense to go back to these theories, now that Obama has been president for almost 4 years.

I actually called up and pointed this out to him when he was a guest on a radio show. I said, you have been discussing your theories about Obama for 45 minutes and you haven't said one word about anything "anticolonial" he has done as president.

He answered, ok, here's something, the START treaty. Which is obviously nonsense, and even more nonsense later when I looked up that treaty and saw that it was ratified by 72 senators. Are they all anticolonialists?

20. his theory is that Obama is an anticolonialist

he bases it on Obama's upbringing, especially his father, and also on his professors at Harvard. The theory had problems before Obama became president, but now that Obama has almost finished a term as president it is just downright silly.

If I could ask him a question today I would ask him about Ecuador and Assange. An anticolonial president would certainly stand with Ecuador against the UK, right?

24. The "Founding Fathers" of this nation were "anti-colonialists"

which was why they advocated freedom from England and created this great nation of ours. Which means those who are anti-anti-colonial are "loyalist traitors". So Mittwitt, LyinRyan, and their surrogates and supporters, are all anti-American.

See? This is what happens when you take their nonsense all the way out to the real rather than fictional conclusion.

B. America itself could be described as "anti-colonial" since we revolted against Great Britain.

So, they have to concoct ridiculous stereotypes about Obama out of whole cloth. The Obama that they rail against simply does not even exist. Eisenhower and Nixon were far more Liberal than Obama, yet Obama is a Socialist????

D'Souza proves that you can be intelligent and well-educated and still be a bigot.

62. Some will, but not many. Half won't bother and the other half will have to pay

Republicans will flock to it, to the meager extent that they will flock to something they have to pay for, and Democrats won't bother with it. So you have to ask yourself, how much money will Joe-six-pack pay to watch a political movie, no action, no shoot-em-ups, no half clad young ladies showing skin, not fire, no bullets flying around? Answer, not much and not many of them will do it. So I agree with you, 'no one will see it'.
