2016: Hollywood Obama documentary to be released this summer.

I realize I am a bit late on this one, but I thought I would report on this anyway. Apparently there is a professionally done movie in the works which takes a closer look at Barack Obama's history and ideology. There are some big names involved in this, including long time Steven Spielberg partner Gerald Molen (producer of Schindler's List and Jurassic Park) and Kathleen Kennedy (producer of Hook, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and ET). The film is based off the book The Roots of Obama's Rage by Dinesh D'Souza. Dinesh spoke at CPAC this year, where he previewed this trailer for the film...

Here is a video of Dinesh D'Souza speaking at CPAC 2012 about Obama's anti-colonialist views. He has information for both Democrats and Republicans to hear.

Gerald Molen, 2016's director, is a rare conservative in the liberal bastion of Hollywood. You learn everything you need to know about his feelings towards Obama here. He has a pretty good resume too. In addition to the films mentioned above Molen also produced Twister, Minority Report, and Rainman. Molen is also a Mormon, and a donor to the Romney campaign in 2008. It is likely he is supporting Romney's bid this year, so I expect this movie to be thorough, professional, and a powerful source of ammunition against the Obama machine this year. Kathleen Kennedy, the producer of 2016, on the other hand, has been a big donor to Democrats, including Obama in 2008. I can't but help to wonder why she would get involved in this project, except that maybe she is a traditional Democrat who can see just how different Barack Obama really is now after 3 years. Which is the complete gist of the movie.

Either way, I have high expectations for this and I will be seeing this movie the day it is released.
