This movie is basically a long-format political commercial to help Mitt Romney and the Republican Party win the 2012 election. It was funded by a small group of very wealthy conservative businessmen… that’s all a superPAC is, but since it’s a movie and not a commercial they get around having to file that way.
While reviews of the film have been less than glowing — Variety’s Joe Leydon dubbed it a “a cavalcade of conspiracy theories, psycho-politico conjectures and incendiary labeling” — a several big-name conservatives have endorsed the highly-critical look at Obama’s past.
The movie is produced by Citizens United, a conservative political advocacy group headed by David Bossie, a former Whitewater investigator and author of several books detailing policy failures of the left.
I am beyond apalled at the eleventh hour release of this hateful view of the man. Making him look anti-American because his father has Kenyan roots?
Shame on the Republicans. The more I read about this movie, and the timing, the more I shake my head.
Maybe it's time to re-release the movie "Under the banner of Heaven" which is about the nasty history of the Mormon religion. Equally scurrilous if shown just before the election.
