Mrs Drango and I will try to see it Sunday after church. (Church is something that is foreign to 0bama acolytes)

It opened here today. First showing was sold out at 12 noon. Second show at 2:25, the one I attended, was about 90% full....don’t know about the 4:454 show...

People attending were, like me, older, retired folks. One black couple though. The young people and blacks and hispanics who need to see this one, will not....sad...

My wife and I are going to see this movie in the next few days.

Can't wait...

He did this on the Steve Malzberg program.  The guy is a real die-hard stand up Conservative here.

There’s a 10am showing Sunday morning just off Times Square that’s only 7 bucks. Next showing is $14, so I might try to make it. (First show at Union Square is also $14. When did *that* happen?)

“Enjoy the movie. I don’t have to see it. I knew everything in in 3.5 years ago.”

I took the family to see this (in a PACKED theater) this afternoon thinking that I already knew everything that was in there - kinda “waste two hours and take one for the team.” I was WRONG. I learned a lot about Obama’s history and now understand this theory of his anti-colonialist motivation much better than I did before. I'm glad I went.

I hope Obama loses big. I believe there’s something deep in the American psyche that rejects tyranny and despotism. I hope that’s still true.

I want to go see it but it isn’t playing to any theater in central MO. Not driving 2 hours to see it. I’m calling the theaters around here to see when they will be playing the #1 movie in America.

Obomas beliefs are so bad, it's rated PG.
He's not a good role model for the nations children.

You can check Obama's America 2016 to see when it will be playing in your area, and the site says they are releasing to more theaters all the time.

I don't see it playing anywhere around here yet. I hope it shows before the election.

IF you have it showing in your area, you could buy extra tickets for people you think should see it who wouldn't normally go on their own.
Maybe a moderate democrat relative or two?

Praise it loud and clear if you like it. Make sure other people hear you. They might get curious and check it out as well.

“”I don’t have to see it. I knew everything in in 3.5 years ago.””

I have felt the same way. I already know more about the jerk than I care to know. Glenn Beck has several parts of interviews with Dinesh D’Souza and I think he’s no doubt done a great job but I don’t think it’s anything that can’t be found online and that I’ve read about. Everyone who has seen it is raving about it but I would still have trouble with it.

I do not want to see the man’s face or hear his voice and I’m now at the point that I can’t even stand to hear his name mentioned.

People who have commented on www.fandango.com say even if you can’t stand to go inside, at least buy tickets and boost the sales. I would have no problem with that.

I don’t even see it on Drudge, but the claim it’s #1 is deceptive - it’s #1 in PER SCREEN average on very few screens.

For days I have been seeing FReepers reporting their theater was *packed* when they went to see 2016.
We went this past Tues. at 7:15pm, expecting lines, etc. and to our dismay there was about 30 people TOPS viewing the movie, in a theater that seats maybe 150. There was brief, light applause.
This is in fairly conservative Ventura County, CA, about 1 hour northwest of L.A.

People that spend their money on this are people that wouldn’t vote for Obama anyway. The movie will have little, if any, impact on the rest of the voters.

Something tells me the movie wasn't made with Freepers in mind.

Vta was conservative generally 25 years ago. California is a cesspool waiting to die. Sorry. Spent many happy years there before the illegals and loonies took over. Miss the weather and my pals but not the idiocy that prevails there.

I think the movie will definitely have an impact on the undecided voter. Plus it will scare conservatives a bit more than they already are. It will help with the get-out-the-vote effort.

You learn a lot about the origins of Obama’s anti-colonialism philosophy. He really is not like most of us. More like an Alinsky on steroids.

Went to a 7:30 p.m. showing in blue Macomb County MI. We got there half an hour early and there was already a line waiting to get into the theater which was just letting out. By the time the movie started, it was about 3/4 full.

There was a lot of great agreement mumblings throughout the film and snorts of derision over Obama’s beliefs. When it came to the part about his plans to reduce our nuclear arsenal, you could hear the shocked dismay go through the theater.

I really got a lot out of D’Souza’s theory that anti-colonialism informs all of Obama’s decisions; large and small. It so totally makes sense.

At the end there was light applause. Lots of people gathered just outside the theater and kept discussing what they’d just seen.

The audience was mostly older, but some our age (50’s) and several sets of younger folks. We took our 15 year-old son. He enjoyed the movie as well.

Well worth it!

I saw it last night and really wasn’t impressed

However, i see videos exposing Obama all the time on youTube, so, almost none of it was new

The interviews with Obama’s Father’s friends was a new thing, video from Kenya was interesting, video from Indinesia, too

But otherwise, it moved too slow in the first half and then made a logical jump with no clear transition to his next pont when he was poiting out things, nor were his points startling to me

maybe I seen too many of these type videos

it was well done, but more for the Obama novice or neophyte to the political argument, for the hard corps, it is a youtube video event, wait for it to come out on YouTube

It was very full at 5:10 on a Friday afternoon here in Alabama. Older demographic, 99% white, lots of couples. People were impeccably polite finding their seats and filing out of the theater.

On the nuclear issue: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2012/08/23/Report-Obama-s-State-Dept-Considering-Elimination-of-Our-Nuclear-Arsenal

There’s a college paper of his or something about disarmament.

So, let’s consider what he can STILL do toward this end....especially after an election he loses......

Yeah, there were gasps over the reduction in the nuclear arsenal in my showing too. Also the occasional derisive snort, which made me happy.

As former NYers, and residing in
CA for 43 years (and 2 other states before that) because of job transfers, we’ll stay and fight.
The county here is still regarded as conservative.
Naval Base Ventura County is 10 miles away.
One part was formerly called ‘Pt Mugu,’ a Naval Air Station. We all still call it that. A few miles away from there is Port Hueneme, the Seabee Base. Both bases bastions of conservatives, mixed in with their near-by towns.

Don’t like Jerry Brown, but this county is okay for now. We’ve got good Republican leadership in Ventura County. Don’t personally know of anyone exiting the area.

As is true in many places, it’s liberals around the big cities, but the outlying areas, not as much.

Thanks for the reminder : ) We have lived in 3 other states, and we’ll stay here.

re: leaving CA - -

Realize it’s popular to say that, but we know of no one leaving. Our area just got a new MAjor on and off ramp on the 101 Ventura Freeway. Anticipating more new housing. And better access to the university.

Last weekend people from all over flocked to the wonderful airshow hosted by the airport in the small city (yes, city) of Camarillo.
There is also a relatively new 4 year university on the outskirts of Camarillo.
The county is thriving in many areas.

Calif. has always been known to have a high standard of living, so what’s new?
You all stay where you want - we’ll take it here!
PS We are by no means ‘rich’ - neither are the neighbors.

Went to a 7:30 p.m. showing in blue Macomb County MI.

I live in Macomb too. Have you by any chance seen or heard of the DVD documentary "Agenda - Grinding America Down"? Surprisingly enough, it was shown at my neighbor's Catholic church and they purchased a copy of it.

2016 I believe was No.1 screen avg. last week, but No.13 in total take as it wasn't in wide release. I think Drudge must have the early numbers from Friday night. No idea if it will hold up through Sunday.
