17 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary is in large part a work of fiction. There is some facts involved: yes Obama was born in Hawaii and yes he spent some of his childhood in Kenya. But to say that his absentee father, who he met only twice, influenced him to become anti-colonialism and anti-American is at best, completely one man's opinion, and at worst, completely bogus. Obama haters want to believe these lies about Obama and that is the motivation for this film. (And it came out soon before the election. Hmmmm... what a coincidence). The truth is that they are not grounded in anything except opinion, biased opinion at that. If Obama is really going to accomplish the things that D'Souza claims, he needs to get really busy. Yes, I actually have the crazy idea that Obama, the president of the United States, actually wants to see the United States succeed, not fail. When the predictions in this movie don't come to pass, will D'Souza and his D'Souzites own up to it? I think I know the answer to that already.
