CinemaDave - After tonight's acceptance speech, watch "2016: Obama's America"

Sep. 6th, 2012 11:22 am After tonight's acceptance speech, watch "2016: Obama's America"

Eight years ago, Michael Moore's **Fahrenheit 911** earned 222 million dollars, thus becoming the highest grossing documentary of all time. It should be noted that Moore received 666 million dollars in free public relations from the major news networks, while American troops were fighting two wars against al-Qaeda in Iraq and Afghanistan.

With far less support from the mainstream media, **2016: Obama's America** is a quietly filling theater seats across the nation. Lacking Michael Moore's artistic flair, directors John Sullivan and Dinesh D'Souza present their case in a no nonsense style. Not trying to press emotional buttons, Sullivan & D'Souza challenge the intelligence of the ticket buyers.

The first half of **2016: Obama's America** provides a good history lesson for people not familiar with the malaise of Jimmy Carter's Presidency. The second half of the film predicts what the world could be like if Obama wins a second term on November 6th. One premise seems certain - that Obama's policies are not about helping the poor, but stripping the wealthy.

Michael Moore and his sycophants are not likely to watch **2016: Obama's America,** but those seeking an informed opinion may want to catch this flick at a matinee price. When the film concluded, people applauded. While the credits rolled - a man shouted "Vote Romney" and the Monday afternoon crowd applauded again.

Thank you for a fair review. Unlike many others on I M D you do not attack Dinesh for his views. I saw and enjoyed this documentary. I wish others would watch it. The information is applied in a very believable manner. Most of what is portrayed in this movie is unfolding before our eyes.
