    Opened last night to a packed theater. Frankly, I was expecting a lot of speeches, rhetoric and bashing from one side or the other. That's not at all what the film was about. It was more a biography of the President's life and influences. Beautifully shot and really well put together.

    It's not always been clear to me why President Obama makes the choices he does, sometimes acting like a modern Progressive (Obamacare, Keystone Pipeline) and others almost like Bush (war on drugs, Patriot Act, military intervention). This movie NAILS the President's motivations and aspirations for transforming America. Really, really well done.

    Beautifully shot around the world...wait until you see the interview with the President's half brother...the movie was produced by the same guy that did Rain Man, Jurassic Park and Schindler's List. Top notch.

    I watched the trailer.

    Why did he lie right in the trailer?

    It's just a troll. Please don't feed it, lest it breed.

    I'd ask, but I don't think you will explain...

    You are asking TDM for specifics? Surely you jest!

    I can see how Obama would inspire the producer of Rain Man.

    Friends of mine saw it last night. We are planning to see it this week.

    I don't mind saying 4 more years of Obama not only repulses me, it terrifies me.
