Skip to comments.Film Biographer in Awe of Obama
Posted on 03/09/2012 10:09:35 PM PST by John Semmens
Davis Guggenheim's recently completed film biography presents an unstintingly glowing portrayal of President Barack Obama. There is, to quote Guggenheim, no downside to this man save the enmity of his enemies.
Only one other person in the history of the world has led a comparably exemplary life, Guggenheim asserted. Jesus healed the sick. Obama gave us healthcare. Jesus fed the multitudes. Obama has put more people on food stamps than any other president. The parallels between the two men's great works are uncanny.
Guggenheim expressed some anxiety that like Jesus, Obama may be crucified for his efforts. Every day, right-wing fanatics stir up hatred of the President. Just as Jesus was denied mercy by mobs outside of Pilate's palace, talk radio agitators like Rush Limbaugh urge voters to deny Obama a second term. The very idea that we could be repeating mistakes made 2000 years ago sends shivers up my spine.

Uuuuuhhh, that’s on his good days...:))
John , you got me with this one.. maybe it’s not SATYRICAL ENOUGH... (which is a VERY scary thought)..
and there it is...
This guy desperately needs to get a life.
Thanks for the laugh John.
When even an arch-lib like Morgan scoffs at this guys vomit-inducing piece of artistic fellatio, you know somethings wrong with this twerp Guggenheim.
What Guggenheim is saying is that his documentary “Waiting for Superman” was BS from his point of view. He went all over touting the film, but in the end he really didn’t mean it. He couldn’t think of any failures of the Obama administration, despite the fact he made a documentary about one of Obama’s biggest. This guy just proved he is not a stand up guy.
This should be good...

True...but his white Marxist family influenced his belief system more than the absent Kenyan father.
The Kenyan's major contribution was pigment.
Nice touch John ;-)
For the last three years, the global definition of “in Awe” has in practice meant BUTT KISSING.
(Mods sorry, if that’s too honest please remove)
The brainwashing rivals Soviet Russia.
In fact, we are becoming more like the USSR every day.
With the single exception, our government seems obsessively determined to make America ... weaker.
Good one. Thanks for the chuckle, and the ping.
If I recall my Black Studies well, don’t Blacks believe that both Jesus and Obama are Black?
And both preached their ministry for about 3-4 years, and traveled to many locations doing such, and talked in parables, and came not to destroy their background but to fulfill it, and won the “Prince of Peace” honor?
This Guggenheim cat is a bigger kneepadder than Arthur Schlesinger was for the Kennedys
That’s also pretty frequent with this administration.
Nice one, John.
That is precious.
