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.

Allison Farenhit 9/11 was relaeased during the 2004 election to expose the policies of the bush administration and help defeat him.
It too was a very slanted view of the foriegn policy of the bush administration.
Whatever facts may have been exposed about 9/11 and its aftermath were clouded and politicised by Moores documentary.
It was turned into a very long political ad that suggested GW bush was incompetent and rather dumb.
Something that is not true. He was a very successful Governor of a state where the Gov office has very little power. Only someone who is smart and savvy politically can accomplish anything as Texas Gov.
Why Perry who has very little success even with a republican controlled legislature has not accomplished much. Shalom

Come to think of it, much of it is barbaric in appearance from the inside too...
People in The UK would never dare enter a political discussion, or a discussion about politics with people in the US - you guys get so...angry, and vehement in your own beliefs. When we're discussing US politics in the safety of our own Countrymen we do generally express shock, disbelief, unease and fascination in equal measure.

Each to their own - every system has faults and good points. In the UK we currently have a coalition, the third one ever in the history of ur parliament I believe. We get less done - but arguably the need for more compromise and discussion brings benefits.

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.

Db, I agree about the movie Fahrenheit 9/11. I was embarrassed by the release timing and would not go see it until after the election (not that there was any likelihood I would vote for Bush

Shrop, I doubt that we are that much more contentious than the Brits. I will say our Govt representatives are far more polite that yours.....I watch congressional debates all of the time and have never seen this much contentiousness. Pretty entertaining.....

But the Brits compare poorly when compared to the Taiwanese...LOLOL!

Or South Korea
