Obama is hero of own movie (Epic Fail .. Flirting on The Edge of Inanity)
Yahoo ^ | 3/15/12 | Stephen Collinson - AFP

Posted on 03/16/2012 9:01:41 AM PDT by NormsRevenge

Barack Obama turned up the intensity of his reelection bid, debuting a movie glorifying himself as a president who made "tough" decisions that dragged a traumatized nation out of crisis.

The 17-minute film, soberly narrated by Tom Hanks, is packed with pensive still photos of Obama, and testimony to his toughness from backers like former president Bill Clinton, Vice President Joe Biden and top political aides.

It opens with footage of Obama's euphoric victory rally in Chicago in 2008, recreating the hope and expectation of that campaign, but perhaps inadvertently pointing to the difficultly of recreating that heady moment in time.

"Time and again, we would see rewards from tough decisions he had made, not for quick political gain, but for long-term and enduring change," Hanks said.

"So when we remember this moment and consider this president, then and now, let's remember how far we have come and look forward to the work still to be done."

The film, called "The Road We've Traveled" and directed by Oscar winning director Davis Guggenheim, comes across as an effort to convince Obama supporters, perhaps disappointed by his presidency so far, that they should sign up to fight for him again in November's election.

The film is essentially a greatest hits of the Obama presidency, putting the most positive spin possible on his domestic, economic and national security policy, and skipping over bitter feuds that have raged since he was elected.

Republicans are sure to mock the movie as a grandiose attempt to disguise an administration they consider a miserable failure, with unemployment still above 8.3 percent and many Americans yet to feel the benefits of a recovery.

Is there a part where the naked Obama walks down the street thinking he has clothes on?

-"...narrated by Tom Hanks"

Isn't that funny. He's also the PRODUCER for that film about about Palin.

My, my...that barrack...one week he's a singer, then he does his "algae" comedy bit, then he's a basketball star, a "Tiger Woods" wannabe, and now, he's and oscar-bound actor.

Is there no end to his talents?

You would think that anyone with all those talents could have found a real, paying job at sometime in his life. But, his ego seems to be stronger than his will in most cases.

vacant strip malls and high priced Gas stations.

Producer David Guggenheim, narrator Tom Hanks, and their ‘Bummer suck-up film “The Road We’ve Travelled” are now the odds-on favorites to sweep this year’s Leni Reifenstahl Awards.

You cannot get much farther to the left than Tom Hanks.

He is on my “Don not watch list” along with Jane Fonda and George Clooney.

Making a “tough” or not “tough” decision would normally be judged by the informed interpretation of a free Press.

Our Press is neither informed, nor free.

Hence, we have no idea whether Obama has made any tough decisions at all. All that we know is that the Admensturation and the Press wants us to believe that the decisions were tough.

That they created propaganda to push the “tough decisions” meme leads me to further believe that this President is a joke.

Nothing new here — Our self-absorbed infirmative-action president has already written two autobiographies of his make-believe life. Guess he doesn’t trust anyone else to get his “facts” right.

and high priced Gas stations.

OK, now I have to vent. I work with a mid-aged lady from Irleand who has been here in the US for quite a while. She's a stinking liberal and sucks up any BS her liberal friends, radio station or whatever throw at her. Typical liberal, dabbled in hinduism, buddism, new age crap, etc. and her beliefs are a compilation tossed around with a little Catholic upbringing. OK so much for background. A few minutes ago she came into my office and said - I just spoke with a friend of mine in the UK and she filled up her car and it cost her $240. I said what are people going to do when gas gets that high here. She said with a smile, well, I guess people will all have to go electric cars. I said, The volt is $30,000 who can afford that. She said, well I guess people will have to bike or walk like they did years ago. I just wanted to slap her even though I otherwise like her. Stupid!!!! What about the transport business? Electric trucks? What imbeciles liberals are. They seen to not go very deep - even if well educated. I am still fuming from the conversation because another smug, know it all liberal has all the answers that are causing us to become a 2nd rate country. Grrrrrrrrr. Liberals are idiots.

I try to take as little life advice as possible from those who pretend to be other people for a living.

Didn't Harvey Weinstein just declare that Obama was entirely too humble? I say, I must agree. Barack Obama just exudes humble.

George Clooney, Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, Harvey Weinstein,etc. ain’t gonna cut the mustard. These characters have not a real screen hit in years. Why, “The Iron Lady” is a financial flop in the USA. Ms. Streep got her “Oscar”, but the investors in the Iron Lady took a hit in the shorts. They are all has beens!!!

As such, the great “Obama” directed by Tom Hanks is going nowhere, other then to have a few nutcase, Obamabots watch it and drool!!! Obama is going down big time, come November, 2012. And.....let me be so kind and give the Democrat ilk a bit of advice. beating on the Pubbie candidates buys you nothing. A crosseyed, court jester, with a lisp, could wipe out Obama with one hand tied behind his back!!!

You Dems have no idea how many millions of the American people of all stripes will come out and vote against Obama, but....they will also vote to politically destroy the Democrat Party that let Obama loose on this great nation!!!

Also, they love to ignore the fact that the US is not some tiny little European country where the most of the population is concentrated in a few urban areas. Neither do lots of us want it to be. The left would love for everyone to be forced to live in such areas, dependent on government services. It makes the people easier to control. The left is all about control where it really matters. That’s why they claim to want “government out of our bedrooms” even as they seek ever more ways to force everyone to pay up for deviant behavior.

Amen to that. We have, as the human race, discarded so much of the common sense we once had. Such as actors being low on the social scale. There’s something inherently wrong with a society which pays people millions to remain permanent children playing “let’s pretend”.
