From Scott Paulson – CBS On The Obama Movie

CBS’ Scot Paulsen on “2016″ movie !!!

The Right Politics

This past week, “2016: The Movie” about President Barack Obama opened  in the Chicago area, and I chose to get more of an education about  Obama by seeing the movie. After the inundation of canned hype for the  movie on conservative talk shows across the Chicago radio dial that  sounded more like commercials than honest endorsements of the movie, I  was skeptical of what I was going to see.

While some talk show hosts sounded like they were genuinely impressed  with the documentary and honestly endorsing the film, there were those  who were obviously reading a commercial script which was not coming  across as sincere to the regular listener – at least not to this  often-skeptical listener. Perhaps, in future promotions of the film, it  would be wise to have pre-recorded commercials done by the professional  commercial-makers rather than having the likes of Mark Levin and Sean  Hannity doing script after script to promote the movie. After all, the  listeners aren’t stupid and resent any attempt at being conned. After  many reads by the talk show hosts, the readings of the commercial script  were no more enthusiastic than another Life-Lock commercial read -  another commercial that ought to be professionally done.

Yet, I’m glad I saw the hyped-film because it was more informative  than I had thought it would be and included less propaganda than I had  predicted. If anything, it was nearly too informative as there was an  enormous amount of information condensed into the nearly  one-hour-and-a-half documentary. Fact after fact is put forth which  shows that President Obama definitely has many skeletons in the closet  that have not been released prior to the nation’s trust in him with the  Oval Office.

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?

The man influences the entire globe, but liberal Americans want to  know how much Mitt Romney paid in taxes in the past rather than learn  about the man who they have entrusted with the country. Unbelievable.

The movie undeniably links Obama to persons of suspicious-interest  due to their past actions and statements, such as former radical  activist and Chicago educator Bill Ayers. While the media and  blinded-liberals cast such facts aside, the movie does not. No, this  portion of the movie is not propaganda – it is the display of factual  information about relationships between people that cannot be denied.  Yet, the “left” does deny the facts that are right in front of them.

Quite disturbing is the talk of the United States economy in the  film. The current national debt which has increased two-fold during  Obama’s presidency and the horrendous economy is suggested to be part of  the plan to strip the nation of democracy – reasonable cause to make  citizens totally dependent on the government. The “left” is aghast at  this suggestion of the current economy. They actually believe that Obama  is unintelligent enough to let this economy just happen. Ironically,  it’s many of the people on the “right” who know Obama’s not stupid, and  much of what has happened to the United States in the past four years is  part of Obama’s plan.

How could one so-highly educated and intelligent as Obama not know  what he was doing when he incurred such debt? I left the movie thinking  more strongly than I had in the past that the current debt and this  economy was part of Obama’s plan all along. Increasingly making  Americans dependent on the government is the plan. What’s more, he knew  his blind followers would believe it was not the plan and, of course,  was all Bush’s fault.

He must be laughing at his blind followers all the way to the “new  America ” they’re allowing him to create. My belief is that Obama  continues to prey on his die-hard followers’ stupidity to accomplish his  personal goals for America .

The most disturbing part of the film to me was the interview with  President Obama’s half-brother George Obama from Nairobi , Kenya . How can  Obama claim to want to help people when he has done absolutely nothing  for his own family? It makes me wonder if he really cares about anybody  if he can’t find it in his heart to help his own family.

As the closing credits started to role upward across the screen, the  audience applauded. Me, I just walked out – reasonably upset.

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.
