They said if I voted for Romney, the country would be in the hands of a bizarre cult worshiping a ludicrous god, and they were right!
You prefer America hating Muslims in the White House? Why?
That was the choice in 2012.
YEAH....ALL HAIL THE MESSIAH...OBAMMA IS OUR SAVIOUR....YEAH.....BOW DOWN TO THE MESSIAH.....
I’m glad you are so thrilled to have Obama and the fine job he is doing. (Do I even need a sarc tag?)
It’s early in the day to be hitting the bottle.
The only way to win, was not to play the game.
Oh, yeah. Obama is FAAAAAAR better isn’t he?
I’ll take a family-friendly Mormon in the White House over a Muslim-leaning Communist any day of the week. What the heck are you smoking?
Too blind to differentiate between pure evil and RINO? The worst that Romney might have thrown at us in 2 terms couldn’t hold a candle to what Obama has done each month.
Wow. You win the dumbest post of the month award.
The trouble with that approach is that the game goes on, with you or without you. I’m saddened/angered at the number of people who just decided they would bail out of the election process because their favorite purebred wasn’t running. I walk away from any political discussion with anyone who did that, I don’t see that they have any grounds to bitch about who won and who lost.
Romney was a flip-flopping liar. He was lying about half the things he “believed” in during the campaign.
Heck, even his supporters admit it.
I have zero intention of voting for someone I know is telling me bald-faced lies.
Being an independent conservative I am happy to vote for conservatives who run as Republicans, but I wont vote for anything else.
This is lame compared to some of her stuff...
That doesnt mean conservative or right-leaning docs arent welcome at top-tier festivals. This year, Sundance will premiere Greg Whiteleys Mitt, a behind-the-scenes look at Mitt Romneys presidential bid, and last year, Robert Stones pro-nuclear power pic Pandoras Promise and R.J. Cutlers The World According to Dick Cheney both debuted in Park City.
We are politically agnostic in the way that we look at films, says Sundance senior programmer Caroline Libresco. We never approach the programming process with any kind of pre-determined notion of what we want the films to say or the political point of view of the film. What we are looking for is great storytelling that explores complex issues and provokes thinking about those complex issues.
Toronto programmer Thom Powers agrees, but adds he receives very few right-leaning docu submissions. I actually get a lot more of what I describe as left-wing propaganda films. Last year, Powers brought Errol Morris The Unknown Known, about former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld to TIFF and says the atmosphere verged on contentious. Audiences came with the expectation of wanting to see (Rumsfeld) pilloried and anything short of that happening in the film leaves them unsatisfied, Powers says. Its unfortunate for the audience to set that kind of standard because they wind up missing the other things the films have to offer.
But Whiteley says he isnt worried about the Sundance rReception of Mitt, which was recently acquired by Netflix.
Im a bit more concerned about conservatives (seeing the film), Whiteley says. If you are somebody who was an ardent Mitt Romney supporter, maybe you are hoping this film demonstrates why he should have been president, but this film doesnt go into that at all. I feel like Romney could have been a Democrat it really wouldnt change how the film plays.
But will the fact that Whiteley is a member of the Mormon church hurt him in the same way religion hurt Steve Hoovers doc Blood Brother? The film, about American Rocky Braats work on behalf of an AIDS-afflicted community in India, won both the Sundance audience and grand jury awards last year, but was later criticized by journalist Tom Roston, who implied that Hoover manipulated audiences by not revealing a personal tie with an evangelical church.
The film failed to garner a major distributor or a spot on the Academys shortlist despite glowing reviews and a tradition of Sundance winners going on to Oscar glory.
In an open letter on the films website, Hoover called the claims troubling: Neither Rocky nor myself consider ourselves evangelicals. We are both Christians, but we have no interest in pushing intolerant political agendas or using legislation to enforce doctrine. Nor do I see filmmaking as a means to fill the pews or make converts. I had no secret agenda.
In Librescos experience, the motivation to make docs tends to originate from the progressive side of the aisle.
Ive noticed that the large majority of (nonfiction films) tend to be galvanized and motivated by an interest in a complex view of the world and in perhaps disrupting the status quo.
TG Obama wasn’t a flip-flopping liar. He was’nt lying about half the things he believed during the campaign.!:)
I assume you received the replies that you were hoping for when deceptively posting this provocatively titled ‘thread’?
Then enjoy the liar in the White House, you helped put him there.
I didn’t vote for Obama.
I don’t vote for liberals, of either party
Too bad the GOPe once again selected someone more favorable to the Ruling Class than the American people. They’ll try to do again in 2016.
Is that you, Karl?
No, I did not “help put him there” by any logical reasoning.
That doesn’t make any sense whatsoever
WE better get something this round or we are in the stone ages for a long long time...
Ted Cruz and Rand Paul they will balance each other..
all others needed apply!
I voted for Romney to stop Obama
I voted for conservatives in congress to stop Romney
Simple...because to all too many here on FR if you're not Reagan,Palin or Cruz you're absolute dirt who isn't even worthy to draw breath.The same folks who have 5,000 pounds of canned food in the basement...along with 20,000 rounds of ammunition ("just in case")... figure that if their only choices on the ballot are "half a loaf" or "crumbs" will choose the crumbs...because they'll settle for nothing but the best.
But I thought it was a documentary about Romney?
Statements like this make individuals like the Obamas...and the DUmpster Kids...climax in their pants.And it makes the likes of Barney Fa...ooops,almost said it there...Barney *Frank* climax *outside* of his pants.
You need a new handle:
Gay State AnythingwithanR
And your new one can be..."Obama's Willing Accomplice"
How is that working out for you?
I didn’t lose. :p
Well, good for you!
I agree. Without getting specific, I think some of these “don’t play the game” people are nothing but undercover libs, just running a con.
...a bizarre cult worshiping a ludicrous god...
I honestly thought you were talking about the media's obsession with Obama.
Some just need other to cow tow to their whims..
The first American coin said...
Being progressive has turn ....
It is sad to see Redford today a shadow of a man he once was and it didn’t have to be that way...
Anything opposing the 'church' is not welcome in SLC.
Enjoy the deceived MORMON, losing once again...
Shouldn't YOU be a bit more worried about BRIMstone???
"Now if any of you will deny the plurality of wives, and continue to do so, I promise that you will be damned;
and I will go still further and say, take this revelation, or any other revelation that the Lord has given,
and deny it in your feelings, and I promise that you will be damned.
Brigham Young - JoD 3:266 (July 14, 1855)
Neither is voting for a deceiving MORMON.
Having undertaken, for the Glory of God, and advancements of the Christian faith and honor of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the Northern parts of Virginia, do by these presents, solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God, and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil body politic; for our better ordering, and preservation and furtherance of the ends aforesaid; and by virtue hereof to enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal laws, ordinances, acts, constitutions, and offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general good of the colony; unto which we promise all due submission and obedience.In witness whereof we have hereunto subscribed our names at Cape Cod the 11th of November, in the year of the reign of our Sovereign Lord King James, of England, France, and Ireland, the eighteenth, and of Scotland the fifty-fourth, 1620.
Are YOU daring enough to post YOUR then/now pictures?
When my 85 year old parents get the shaft and are condemned to die by the death panels, I will sure be happy that we dodged the bullet and let Obama win again. /sarc
