    To watch this movie and realize – or simply be reminded of – all that is unknown about President Obama is of concern. Much of the information has been ignored by the American media totally. When appropriately reminded as to what is still unknown about Obama to date, one has to ask: How can any logical-thinking person give a damn about Romney’s taxes while not asking any questions regarding our current president’s past?

    Those who have already decided to vote for Obama will probably not even see the movie. It’s sad but they probably don’t want to know the truth when it is laid out so clearly for them in this documentary. The independents who are still deciding who they are going to vote for ought to see this film. I’m quite confident that any undecided voter who sees this film will know who to vote for after viewing this documentary. If you know you’re not going to support the “left” in this coming election, see the film out of interest if you like. But, fair warning, it’s disturbing – and quite frightening – to say the least.

    Yeah... Yeah... it's actually a conservative commentator that writes for CBS but Dems do this all the time with Forbes or the Wall Street Journal. Regardless, what he's saying is still true.

    Documentary film ‘2016: Obama’s America’ takes came out of nowhere to burn up box office

    By Dan Zak, Monday, August 27,2012

    In 87 minutes, using D’Souza’s texts as a foundation, “2016” declares that the absence of his father compelled Obama to overachieve his way to the presidency, which he was able to obtain largely because of his skin color, and that he is waiting until his second term to implement the anti-colonialist policies of his father, his fellow activists and his professors by stripping wealth from the upper classes, bankrupting the country so it can be remade into a socialist state, depleting America’s nuclear warheads and permitting a “United States of Islam” to align between Morocco and Pakistan and squelch Israel.

    “I’m conservative, but open-minded, and will want to watch it again,” says Frank, a federal employee who lives in the District and declined to give his last name. He learned about the movie Sunday on Facebook and attended the 12:50 p.m. showing Monday at Regal Gallery Place. “I never thought about the colonial background. It’s interesting that they’ve thought about what could happen” if Obama is reelected.

    BERG: D’Souza’s ‘2016’: Watch out, Hollywood

    New film unleashes conservative talent

    9/3/12
    By Dave Berg

    Dinesh D'Souza’s sleeper political documentary “2016: Obama’s America” was the No. 1, largest-grossing conservative documentary ever in its first week of wide release last week.

    It came in at No. 7 on the top 10 list while playing in just one-third the number of theaters where other, wider-release films were screened. As the film continues to open in more and more theaters, its numbers invariably will get bigger, perhaps even reaching No. 1.

    This makes Mr. D'Souza, an unassuming, nerdy-looking writer and academic, Hollywood’s newest celebrity. His anti-Obama message has resonated with audiences despite minimal coverage from the media. Until now, that is.

    The well-produced $2.5-million documentary features Mr. D'Souza as the low-profile, understated narrator, which makes the former Reagan adviser and current president of King's College in New York City more authentic and believable for a polemic film. There is no ranting through a bullhorn or ambushing unsuspecting public officials as Michael Moore did in his left-wing films, such as “Fahrenheit 9/11,” the largest-grossing documentary to date. Mr. D'Souza avoids hot-button issues such as the authenticity of President Obama’s Hawaiian birth, which he doesn’t question.

    Instead, he simply tells the story of the president’s past to illustrate how his worldview was influenced by anti-colonialist, Third-World thinking. He does this by traveling to and researching places where Mr. Obama grew up, including Hawaii, Indonesia and Kenya. Mr. D'Souza contends he has much in common with Mr. Obama, as they both grew up around people who ardently believed rich countries only got that way by taking natural resources from poor nations.

    .

    D'Souza had to do a lot of research for this. I wonder how much information he came across that does not support his thesis. I wonder how much information he came across that categorically contradicts his thesis. And I wonder how much of that information is in the movie.

    I guess we'll never know, huh?

    None, until you prove otherwise. Quite the loaded question.

    Given the behavior of the average political partisan, I think it's a pretty reasonable question.

    Yup, absolutely.

    If it's political, and a person believes it, it's their own fault.
