On the night Barack Obama was elected our 44th President, more than 58 million voters cast their ballots for John McCain. Journalist/filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi presents this first-person, cross-country snapshot of a group of conservative Americans who saw their hopes and dreams evaporate in the wake of the decisive Democratic victory in the 2008 Presidential election. Filmed in the months leading up to that historic event, Pelosi gives a voice to these voters, once labeled 'the silent majority,' and explores their feelings about a changing America in which they live.
I tried to find an email to Miss Pelosi to no avail... One question she should have asked was "Lets say Bobby Jindal were to run for office in 2012 or beyond. Would you still have the same views?" This would have put some people quiet for a moment and the audience would see the real truth to the matter of electing officials. Most would probably say,"If that were the case-I will not vote" WAKE UP REPUBLICANS: He is one possible future to the party. Overall though, the documentary was great. I especially liked when she asked one man, "Do you only listen to FOX NEWS because they only tell you what you want to hear?" All he could say in exasperation was "No"
