Movie bashing Obama a propaganda piece

I am puzzled by the fact that in years past folks in this part of the world had to travel to Tallahassee to see independently produced documentaries, many of which were award-winning, and recognized worldwide.

My bewilderment arises due to the fact that in this election year, a film, allegedly about a sitting president, is being extensively shown in every hamlet, village, town, city and metropolis throughout the country just prior to a vital election. Does anyone else find this just a wee bit curious?

To me, it indicates how much money is being spent in an all-out effort to defeat our president in his quest to complete the job he promised to do despite the many lies told and roadblocks designed to assure his failure.

I, as a believer in logic, question this ploy and wonder why.

My kid sister paid to see this film, got up and walked out, appalled and disgusted by the outrageous, distorted claims depicted and intended to influence viewers.

What I find most disturbing is that the flock of sheep the proletariat has morphed into sees nothing wrong, actually believing every word, every scene, never questioning the source or validity. Are they not aware of the art in filmmaking of dubbing, and PhotoShopping?

All I ask is that everyone check the implied "facts"! Question the motives of the 25 "investors" making its release possible in every nook and cranny in the country. It makes for some interesting revelations.

A bit hypocritical? Where was the outrage when Michael Moore produced his 2 films?

"... appalled and disgusted by the outrageous, distorted claims depicted and intended to influence viewers." Are you sure she wasn’t watching the broadcast news? I haven't seen the movie. But, I wonder what sources the writer uses to determine that lies and distortions occurred. The President's words? The media? Sorry, both of these have shown their own propensity to distort and lie.

I also saw this movie. I went to see this movie with an attitude adjusted to view it as if I knew nothing of what has been presented orally or printed about the current President of The United States. At the end of the movie I had to stay seated and just think: "IF any part of this film were not true, would not the author of all the information within this film be so deep under some maximum Federal prison not to see daylight forever, and would this film not be playing at this time as all copies of it had been confiscated as evidence him". Yes, this film is derogatory as to the sitting President of The United States, but this film is the truth about him. Anyone could go out and make such a film about Mitt Romney, or any other person that would be interesting enough to sell the movie tickets. Let's also understand that this film is protected, to some point, by the First Amendment of The United States Constitution. YOU are entitled to view this film if you so wish to do so, and YOU are entitled to form your own opinion about President Obama based on the information within this film. But please remember: YOU are also in the United States of America where we have the right/privelage to make or view this film.

I have not seen the movie, but, then again, It doesn't take a movie for me to decide that I will NOT vote for Obama. His record is deplorable...8+% unemployment, 1.2% GDP, $17 Trillion debt. Further, it seems that he and his administration would "...rather climb a tree and lie than stand on the ground and tell the truth..."

" it indicates how much money is being spent in an all-out effort to defeat our president in his quest to complete the job he promised to do despite the many lies told " How about all of the money being spent by ONE man, george soros, in an all-out effort to get obumma re-elected? what's the difference in spending money on this movie OR sending money to a Super PAC? Obumma promised to do a job......in 4 years....8 is NOT a given for a Pres. How about the many lies told by Obumma himself? "What I find most disturbing is that the flock of sheep the proletariat has morphed into sees nothing wrong, actually believing every word, every scene, never questioning the source or validity." So, the proletariat (working class), who DON'T vote for obumma are a flock of sheep, BUT the ones who DO vote for obumma aren't? Do you believe every word out of obumma's mouth? why hasn't he released his school records? what is he hiding? do you really believe that jeremiah wright has NO influence on him, even though he sat in his church for 20+ years and was married by him? SERIOUSLY, your "story" is so full of half-truths, hypocrisy, and just flat out inaccurate statements, you'd think that you were a democrat or something! I bet your sister didn't even get up and leave. Everything you've stated could be said about the attack adds against romney.

Since the MSM chooses to not provide anything other than the most heartfelt, warmest accolades for the biggest failure in history for a President, it is no surprise such a movie is made. Hence the nationwide showing to the "curious" who can get no real information. In the process it kind of takes the "tingle up the leg" from Chris Mathews and shows the reality of the "tinkle on the leg" we are getting. Gives a hint of transparency into the most opaque person and presidency encountered in my lifetime.

Tell your kid sister thanks for helping pay for the movie and its distribution. Sorry she didn't grasp and embrace the message but then not all will, this is still America.

Both sides SHOULD go all out while holding to some semblance of integrity. And the media SHOULD exercise its due deligence in holding both sides equally accountable for misrepresentations. So much for shoulda, woulda, coulda!

Talk about propaganda! Really? Mr. Heldenberg is a registered member of Change.org, an agenda driven organization. Wondering about his interests/causes? This is from his Change.org page;

"Top Causes Environment 9 Actions Gay Rights 6 Actions 1 Recruit Economic Justice 5 Actions Human Rights 5 Actions Criminal Justice 4 Actions Education 3 Actions Animals 2 Actions Immigrant Rights 1 Action Women's Rights 1 Action Human Trafficking 1 Action "

Well, who's spouting propaganda in this article?

"Propaganda is a form of communication that is aimed at influencing the attitude of a community toward some cause or position by presenting only one side of an argument. Propaganda is usually repeated and dispersed over a wide variety of media in order to create the chosen result in audience attitudes." per Wikipedia.

This definition seems to fit the main stream at media, emphasis provide by me of course. And the result of their "Impartial" rhetoric is exactly what you wrote, so logically I might add:

"What I find most disturbing is that the flock of sheep the proletariat has morphed into sees nothing wrong, actually believing every word, every scene, never questioning the source or validity. Are they not aware of the art in filmmaking of dubbing, and PhotoShopping?",

There has never been a President so vilified as George Bush was by the media--whether holding the office or running for it made no difference. Unrelenting. What is sad is that liberals do not understand, and will not accept. is that most conservatives, support a President who does positive things for the country. But Obama in particular, and liberals in general, are headlong in doing things for votes/power and supporting his openly socialist agenda. pushing us faster towards the financial cliff. Soon, we will have problems like the Greeks who are mandated by the EU to get finances in order but have created a socialist society that will not let it happen short of violence. Our day will come and perhaps is already here.

anytime i hear propaganda, I think of the old USSR. A socialist regime. so, for mrs. heldenberg to call it propaganda AGAINST a socialist, like obumma, is kinda funny and ironic.

I usually think in terms of the Nazis who seem to be the inventors of propaganda techniques now used so well by those in and out of government. I never expected to see basically the entire media work so tirelessly to elect and reelect someone that most of us still don't really know much about--excluding socialists, communists, and radicals of course.

Poor MARTY HELDENBERG, she is so ignorant of the truth, believing in what the liberal media tells her. I dont think there is any hope for her, just like Nadine Mathis. Poor misled senior women.
