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.
Another liberal making a documentary under the guise of being impartial
She says at the beginning of the film that she went into this with an open mind. From that statement on it was almost impossible to watch the rest of the "film" She is the daughter of left leaning liberal, not just a democrat, former speaker of the house, Nancy Pelosi. She spends most of her free time going on Bill Mahr's show and having her ass kissed by him. She will never bite the hand that has fed her.
If she had said "I have to acknowledge I'm biased because of my democratic upbringing and beliefs and this is what I see as the reason I am a democrat, I could truly have watched this with more an open mind.
She then continues to show only the uneducated people in the Republican party or the ones that most Americans will not relate to: ones who are militant in their beliefs. These morons exist in every political party.
If the movie showed the blind followers or crazies in the Democratic party and compared them to the Republicans it might have been a film. If you are a left leaning liberal and want to feel good about your political affiliation watch this movie. If you are looking for a good movie about the politics in America avoid at all costs, it's a one slant show.
I remember thinking that George W. Bush was being paranoid when he spoke about the leftist media. This begs the question: Is it paranoid if it's true?
