Obama documentary maker: The only negative aspect of Obama is Republicans
HotAir ^ | March 9, 2012 | Ed Morrissey

Allahpundit introduced you to the story of the Obama campaign documentary — allow CNN’s Piers Morgan to introduce you to its producer, documentarian Davis Guggenheim. Morgan fillets Guggenheim after the filmmaker insists that he found no negatives at all about Barack Obama, and that the only negative aspect of Obama’s term as President comes from … his opposition. No, seriously:

--snip--

Piers Morgan: “Most documentary makers balance these movies with the negative as well as the positive. What are the negatives in your movie about Barack Obama? Davis Guggenheim: “Well, I mean the negative for me was, there were too many accomplishments. I had 17 minutes to put them all in there.”

Piers Morgan: “Oh, come off it! You can’t say that with a straight face. Come on.”

Davis Guggenheim: “I’m looking at you right now with a straight face.”

Piers Morgan: “The only negativity about Barack Obama is there are too many positives?”

My rule of thumb still stands.

If I ever agree with any politician on everything, someone is lying. Either the politician is lying to me, or worse, I’m lying to myself.

Tom Hanks narrates this garbage. I will never watch a Tom Hanks movie again.

Certain Davis Guggenheim would view that as another positive.

When even Piers Morgan thinks you’re a far-left sycophant, you know you’re in trouble.

This isn’t a documentary. It’s a crockumentary. It’s just like Michael Moorons films. Nothing but propaganda.

That’s the only way the left can work is by getting their Hollyweird trolls to make propaganda films to lie to the people.

What a bunch of crap.

It is supposedly about all of Obama’s accomplishments. It’s shocking that full-of-himself windbag Tom Hanks only blathers on for 17 minutes.

“Well, I mean the negative for me was, there were too many accomplishments."

"So, Mrs. Lincoln, there were no negatives in Our American Cousin other than the actors delivering their lines so well?"

Off topic. Had a conversation with a liberal friend of mine last night. He was insisting that the RATS are going to take back congress. I then asked him if he believes in Democrat ideology and he said yes.

So my next question was, if Democrats think they have such great policies, on their campaign ads, how come they don’t identify themselves as Democrats? On all Republicans ads, they identify themselves as Republicans. You don’t see something wrong there?

Answer: That is nuance.

They truly are brain damaged.

If your going to Lewinski Obama, at least wipe your chin off before going on TV Mr. Guggenheim.
