Skip to comments.Hume rips Obama documentary: 'Winners take responsibility. Losers blame others' (Video)
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 Obamas 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 films 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 Sundays 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.

So, only loosers blame Bush? Can’t be. /s
Biden is a loser.
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.
Hume rips Hanks. Coz he surely wouldn’t rip Obama...
I’ve heard a different version of that saying that also fits:
“Winners find solutions, losers make excuses.”
Forrest Gump makes me sad.
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.
I don’t get it....are you being sarcastic?
Hanks is a big time lib!!
“Its 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.

No I think it’s called a paycheck.
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. .
I’m glad idiot Obama spend about 400K on this sham video!!! The only fools that wiil suck it up are Obamabots, so...barry has not gained an inch with this farce!!! Not worth talking about!!! It will be forgotten in a mtter of days!!!
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.
Does it have a black man reading a documentary about penguins?
Isn’t this the technique Stalin used? Stalin got the credit - the blame went elsewhere?
Millions died for his lies ..
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."
Ought to change the spelling to Loozers and lucers for clarity.
The propaganda film is more like an Obama “docu-cartoon”...
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!
Hanks was a combat engineer?
We need stickers to put over those pix of Obama and
an oil well that say.
If it weren’t for me, there would be 4 more wells
in this picture.
Turn his propaganda AROUND!
According to a couple of different sources, Hanks served in the United States Army, 21 Bravo (Combat Engineer).
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.)
I’m convinced THE WALKING DEAD is based on liberalism. Every liberal I know is a lamebrain. I’m gonna’ start calling them zombie-libs.
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.
