ABC News: Obama’s inconvenient truth

Jake Tapper reports on Obama’s new documentary and how it only works if you ignore Obama’s dismal record:



Now if you are wondering how biased the new documentary is (I know you aren’t, but just go with me here) then this segment with the Director of the film, Davis Guggenheim, and Piers Morgan should clear up any doubt about it. In short, Morgan mocks Guggenheim for suggesting there are no negatives about Barack Obama:

He can’t bring people together because he lacks leadership abilities and he is a leftist ideologue.

That little interview and admission of obama worship should result in Guggie losing every bit of what little credibility he ever had as a documentary film maker.

Like “Inconvenient Truth” this a documentary based on lies and distortion. The film industry, by rewarding this kind of work, is lowering the standard to the degree that documentaries are in fact not documentaries. They need to change the award to “Best Propaganda”

This makes me appreciate Waiting For Superman even more. The director is still clearly an insane frothing at the mouth liberal who had a moment of clarity when it came to kids (even though he goes after Obama a little in that movie for canceling DC charter programs).

The stupid people who bought his slick looks and evil words are still here and their stupidity remains unchanged. They live in our neighborhoods, they shop at our stores, they share the roads, their children attend public schools with ours and they control the unions. Do not forget that the enemy will smile in your face wish you “have a good day!” and steal your liberty. Know who your friends are. Support only the people you know. If some son-of-a-liberal slut looks like, walks like or talks like a liberal, do not trust him Do not hire him. Do not spend your money in his store. Do not yield a seat on the subway or even a parking spot if you can plainly see the other car is being operated by piece of liberal scum.

I just love when these liberals infiltrate our government and the stupidity of the regular Americans who buy into this BS.
I challenge La La Land Bollywood to give away their millions to the Americans who are suffering. Oh wait, that’s not part of their agenda. They want the government to provide for everyone, but with the caveat that they, uber liberals, stay at the top and the rest are just plain old serfs begging for hand outs.

Again, we have only to blame the stupidity of Americans for buying into this crap.

Obama has done precisely what he promised. REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH Obama has fulfilled this promise in spades – Distributing (expending) more of America’s wealth than any other president in history. – to his cronies here and in the Middle East – through food stamps and entitlements. – through his stimulus checks – though extensions of unemployment the list goes on. HOPE Obama has given Hope to: – Islamists – giving money and using the US military to establish the very Islamist terror groups that we have been fighting. – Marxists – by overriding the Constitution to change laws, and achieve their goals. – Social activists – by ignoring the Constitution and science to achieve their goals. – Drug cartels and illegal aliens – by refusing to defend our borders and deport illegal aliens the Constitution and laws state. – Corrupt politicians – by lawsuits against states that try to prevent… Read more »

Looks like you already bought a load somewhere else.

Obama said he was going fix all of these things in three years. He said he would be a one term president if he didn’t. Now he is saying that it was worse than he thought, but he was the one telling us how bad it was in 2008.

President Obama? NAH! President Failure is more accurate and to the point. Goggy can tell all the lies he wants and fudge up his (obama’s) failures to look like successes, but Obama is a marxist loser. Always has been and always will be.

obama will be hard pressed to cover all the intentional damage he has perpetrated on the American people. Where Is President Obama Hiding His Tax Hikes? EXCLUSIVE: It could be said that President Obama has never seen a tax hike he doesn’t like — whether it’s letting the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts expire, insisting on higher taxes for job creators, and yesterday calling on Congress to raise taxes on the oil industry. But as much as the President wants to raise taxes, Heritage has discovered that there are even more tax hikes hidden in his budget, adding up to a total of $2 trillion in higher taxes. In a new report, Heritage’s Curtis Dubay uncovers Obama’s hidden tax hikes and finds that the President’s proposed $1.561 trillion tax increase over 10 years is much bigger than advertised. In fact, the President wants to raise taxes by $1.689 trillion –… Read more »

I’m surprised that of all people that Piers Morgan stood up to this sycophant. I hope Jake Tapper keeps up with some level of journalistic honesty.

“I think there are negatives in the sense that the challenges when you’re trying to pass healthcare in a really toxic environment, there are negatives in the oppositions he’s had in terms of the political climates in Washington…” Uhm, that would be called checks and balances there mr. propaganda. These checks and balances were put in place to avoid any one of the branches from taking all the power away from the people. Gee, toxic environment…. would that be the literal locked doors when democrats locked out republicans during talks about health care reform? Would that be the voting taking place on Christmas eve when democrats knew most representatives would be gone home? Did that include princess pelosie threatening to go over, under, around and through to shove something down the throats of over half the country who doesn’t want this? “He really ran hoping to change the political climate… Read more »

He is an opportunistic leftist. I remember him using this talent of seeming unbiased to Obama’s advantage in the 2008 campaign as well. It reminds me of O’Reillys talent to make people think he is on the right while leading them down his garden path toward big-government.

I loved Morgan’s last comment. That was awesome. Frankly, the only positive I can see with Obama is that (as far as we know. It’s not like the media could be bothered to find out) he’s a family man who doesn’t have 4 baby-mamas out there relying on welfare. He’s no leader and his own policies have been a disaster. The only successes he can claim are from the Bush era policies he has continued.

Turn off this garbage when it comes on the TV or at the movies. This infomercial or movie will run 24 hrs and the only real objective is to brainwash the public to vote for the Prez. This is reminiscent of what dictators do-brainwash the public just like the infomercial for the 2008 elections, to erase the demise of the economy and his failed policies.

Oh, come off it. You can’t say that with a straight face, come on‘ – Piers Morgan

I’ve been waiting years to actually hear a liberal say this line. I never thought it would happen in my lifetime. I don’t like Piers at all, but I have to give him some credit here for that line of questioning.

Perhaps this award-winning director will get a Nobel Peace Prize this time around for uncovering all these wonderful accomplishments that I had, quite frankly, forgotten about. How could I have missed them? I feel embarrassed and will now go kneel on my prayer rug, facing Washington to beg forgiveness. /sarc (like I have to explain its sarcasm, heh).

“I took a pay cut to do this” What do you have a list price sticker on the side of your head? Do you normally get paid by the word, or the hour, or the final length of the piece? Is there really any way to determine the validity of this absurd statement or is this just another example of “jobs created or saved”? You liberals think everyone is totally ignorant except you and they will swallow anything that comes tripping out of your slimy, lying, sickening mouths.

Something about a broken clock being right twice a day… or how about… even the garbage gets taken out once a week. That’s Morgan’s record on being realistic.
