the man who wrote two autobiographies before he was 50, and before he actually accomplished anything, now wants a movie.

it’s amazing. the man’s favorite subject is himself, and that’s odd, because he just isn’t that interesting.

Wonder if it will have the 3 dead gay black men from his wonderful Marxist church that mysteriously were killed as he rose to power????? Larry Sinclair? His Pakistani gay roommates????? His prevalent drug use with flunking classes but getting affirmative action?

Wonder if his Marxists conversations will be featured, as well as his mother’s whoring behavior as a teenager? And lets not forget the pedophile/pornographer—his special mentor during his childhood of Frank Marshall Davis.

After learning that Guggenheim's Academy Award was for An Inconvenient Truth, I'd say that he and Leni Riefenstahl are cut from the same cloth.

Gotta pimp the RELIGION OF OBAMA, doncha know.

As Hitler said,
“As soon as our own propaganda admits so much as a glimmer of right on the other side, the foundation for doubt in our own right has been laid.”- Hitler

And Compare these quotes:

“This morning’s opening meeting... was more than a gorgeous show, it also had something of the mysticism and religious fervor of an Easter or Christmas Mass in a great Gothic cathedral.” — New York Times Reporter William Shirer

“Obama is sort of like a god, standing above the country.”-Newsweek assistant managing editor Evan Thomas to Chris Matthews, live on MSNBC

It's a remake of Charlie Chaplin's "The Great Dictator."

That would be a little too prescient.

"Barack the Magic Negro, Huffed and Puffed, and, Putted and Putted in D.C." with a working title of "A-hole in One"

Hopefully, it will start with his birth in Mombassa...follow him to his citizenship in Indonesia, show him getting into US universities as an affirmative action foreign student...who fell to drink and drugs, before Harvard wanted him as a fig leaf Law Review President.

As much as I hate to say it, Obama's campaign people are pretty adept at using every trick and medium possible to advance Obama and his objectives. Four years ago they took a practically unknown man who had done nothing of any significance, with no record for leadership, no admirable work ethic, and no love for this country...and through the utilization of the Internet and well placed media connections, they gave us a president who's only success has been to advance the destruction of our society and country.

Now they are going to make a movie about his first three years in office. Just imagine how his base will flock to see that. I am sure the movie won't reflect at all on Obama's failures. The film will be like a pep rally on steroids. And...You know the Obama lemmings will spend their last dollar for the privilege of adoring Obama.

Yep, what a clever way to get those who can't afford the thousand-dollar-a-plate dinners, to contribute to his campaign. And, at the same time, give the narcissist who relies on attention, Obama, another "fix" required to boost self esteem and haughty attitude, especially since the live crowds have been dwindling for the past couple of years.

I have to say it, they are clever...deceitful, yes, but clever. The GOP just does not ever do anything in the way of promoting their candidates that compares to the conniving tactics and ability these guys have to infiltrate the public's minds with hype and pure propaganda.

Davis Guggenheim won the Oscar for An Inconvenient Truth, giving Al Gore a fake photo op with the statue. Who doesn’t think Gore won an Oscar? Guggenheim’s alleged biopic of 0bama will be done in time for a nomination, to which Dear Leader can fake a claim.

Allegedly.

I can understand why he needs to have a movie made about himself, when the networks will never give him any air time....
