Hume rips Obama documentary: 'Winners take responsibility. Losers blame others' (Video)
Daily Caller ^ | March 18, 2012 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 03/18/2012 9:04:02 AM PDT by Rufus2007

Last week the Obama campaign released a 17-minute documentary intended to highlight the accomplishments of President Barack Obama’s term to date. The film, narrated by Hollywood actor Tom Hanks, has been criticized for being backwards-looking instead of focusing on the future, as some pundits suggest campaigns should.

However, Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume said the film’s biggest problem was not dwelling on the past, but dwelling on who to blame for the past.

“And he said he would not dwell on blame,” Hume said on Sunday’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday.” “I am surprised Tom Hanks could get that line out without coughing. This president is notable — and I mean look, politicians do this, this is not the biggest crime that ever happened — but this president has been notable … for blaming others. For the longest time, of course, it was former President [George W.] Bush who got all of the blame for the problems.”

The film is asking for a parody, like perhaps Joe Biden's greatest hits weaved in intermittently

It would be funny to see some of Joe Biden’s greatest hits.

“Stand up, Chuck.”

“You can’t go into a 7-11 unless you have a slight Indian accent.”

“Franklin Roosevelt went on TV and spoke to the American people.”

“The healthcare law is a b** f***** deal.”

Tom Hanks seems to be a reosonably intelligent man.

It’s hard to believe he can leave all reason behind, look at what Obama has done to America and then make a Documentary praising the Vacation king.

it must be some kind of Vulcan mind game.

I’ve heard a different version of that saying that also fits:

“Winners find solutions, losers make excuses.”

He’s been in DC a long time and has become inured to watching liars. The rest of us, however, are appalled at this president.

In his worst moments, Clinton didn’t lie with this frequency and predictability. The most frightening aspect is that Obama appears to actually believe the lie of the day, even if it contradicts one less than 24 hrs old.

It is a nauseating mix of hubris, stupidity and desperation that will see this green agenda apparatchik travel to Oklahoma simply to get his photo taken with an oil rig in the background.

The ability to consistently and shamelessly tell whoppers takes real talent. I always thought that Clinton was good at it but he's a lightweight compared to Obama.

Tom Hanks

Proof that Hollywood Whores will do or say anything for money by reading the words that others have written for them. Sort of high priced hookers with teleprompters. .

It took Clinton some effort to lie. Usually he raised his eyebrows, changed the tone of his voice, or pointed his finger. With o’bama, the lying is effortless.

Obama is way past blaming Bush. Now he's blaming the Constitution and the founders, essentially saying that if not for them, he could fix the nation's problems:

"Our Founders designed a system that makes it more difficult to bring about change than I would like sometimes."

By the way, it's "losers," not "loosers."

Tom Hanks is a typical Hollywood hypocritical schmuck. I haven’t had much good though about him after he led the Pledge of Allegiance during the televised program—when many Hollywood stars donated appearances on a telethon instead of donating money—during 9-11 days. He led the Pledge, leaving out the words Under God. America’s favorite Army veteran stepped all over the National heritage. Give him his due for having been a combat engineer. Remember his denigration of America.

True and the absence of any of the usual subconscious fidgets when lying is what should concern us most - it means that he lacks remorse and is a sociopath at best to say nothing of the programming he has willingly embraced.

His most annoying trait - and there are many - is his tendency to ‘street up’ his speech patterns when in full patronize-the-audience mode. Have you noticed the delighted surprise in his voice when one of his wiseass lines actually gets a chuckle? He immediately goes off script and we are left to watch the nation’s chief executive shuck and jive about drilling for oil on the National Mall or in your front yard.

Tom Hanks who? I cannot even fathom watching this load of load, much less give it any value to anyone but 21st century robots who’ll drool and swoon till they crap themselves. Total excrement is too kind, the other socialist too!

We need stickers to put over those pix of Obama and

If it weren’t for me, there would be 4 more wells

Turn his propaganda AROUND!

According to a couple of different sources, Hanks served in the United States Army, 21 Bravo (Combat Engineer).

His Wiki bio doesn't mention anything about his being in the Army.

I’m not convinced. He was born in 1956. That puts him graduating from high school in 1974. He went to college for 4 years and was acting by 1978. I don’t see where he had time to squeeze the army in there anywhere. Plus, it’s not mentioned in any of his biographies or IMDB.

I think I remember him saying that he DIDN’T serve in the military in his speech at the dedication of the WWII Museum in New Orleans. (It’s a great place, by the way.)

You may well be right. It may be that some lib apologist made up some words to stick in some pseudo-biographies. Anyway, I’m not concerned enough about Tom Hanks to spend time researching him. For now, the official version I guess is that he didn’t. Take care.
