I wish all the success in the world to Dinesh D’Souza and his movie 2016: Obama’s America. It’s good when anybody does the work of looking into Obama’s background that the press has refused to do.
But, really, what is there to know about him that we don’t already know? A documentary can fill in the details, but it’s not like Obama is trying to hide who he is. If he is trying, he’s doing a crappy job of it (but then again, crappy jobs are kind of his forte).
If you think you need to know who Obama really is, I’m about to save you 11 bucks and reveal him in his own words.
What does he think about socialist wealth redistribution? He already told us:
What does he think about small business (and big business, for that matter)? What does he think about individual initiative and the Protestant work ethic? He already told us:
What does he think about affordable energy prices?
What does he think about a strong foreign policy supported by the citizens of the US?
What does he think about small-town, regular folks in middle America? The kind of folks who value religious freedom and gun rights?
And there’s plenty more where that came from. Like I said, go and enjoy 2016–there are probably lots of interesting details in there. But don’t expect any kind of Sixth Sense twist. The subject of the movie is no big mystery.
