Storyline

At age 18, Barack Obama admittedly arrived at Occidental College a committed revolutionary Marxist. What was the source of Obama's foundation in Marxism? Throughout his 2008 Presidential campaign and term in office, questions have been raised regarding Barack Obama's family background, economic philosophy, and fundamental political ideology. Dreams from My Real Father is the alternative Barack Obama "autobiography," offering a divergent theory of what may have shaped our 44th President's life and politics. In Dreams from My Real Father, Barack Obama is portrayed by a voiceover actor who chronicles Barack Obama's life journey in socialism, from birth through his election to the Presidency. The film begins by presenting the case that Barack Obama's real father was Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party USA propagandist who likely shaped Obama's world view during his formative years. Barack Obama sold himself to America as the multi-cultural ideal, a man who stood above politics. Was ... Written by Joel Gilbert

Just because you don't see eye to eye with his policy doesn't mean that you get the right to name him anything you want.
25 September 2012 | by michaeltepeSee all my reviews

Anyone who really watches this movie based on the summary shown on IMDb must be seriously impaired or just blind. I mean just because you don't see eye to eye with his policy doesn't mean that you get the right to name him anything you want. I mean this goes back to the middle ages when we went witch hunting.

So he is accused of not being American, then he releases his birth certificate. You still aren't satisfied and search for even more bogus ideas to destroy his presidency.

Well I can sort of understand it, because I mean when you don't have an actual candidates in your party that can match up or let alone have a real vision for America. I mean I wouldn't do these kinds of things, like fabricate bogus movies that make unsubstantiated claims.

How much longer will the American public be blindsided by biases and bitter opposition. I mean even in other parts of the world where opposing parties don't see eye to eye they still get things done.

When will you guys wake up and start seeing whats actually going on. You care more about what side the person is standing than actually getting policy changed or improvements made, that America dearly needs.

Seriously, if things continue going down this path and you don't find a way to compromise and agree on certain things, all these dystopian films and TV shows that are getting so popular, will become reality.

Why was Obama elected the first time, if you don't want change?
