There are propagandists of all kinds. Now the Republicans have the equivalent of Michael Moore.

Dinesh D'Souza, the producer who bankrolled this movie is an import from India. Could he be pushing support for Mitt because he's trying to get Mitt into a position in which he can outsource even more American jobs to India?

It is sad commentary that a hate movie, deeply rooted to the same kind of propagandistic lies practiced in Europe during WW II should be grossing millions of dollars in 21st Century America. If there was a Berlin Film Festival that courted the profane, I am sure this film would be contending for its Goebbel's Award

Michael Moore makes these films it's educational.
If a republican does these films it's mitt Romney behind it.
Nerves are easily touched I see.

Excellent movie! Everyone should see 2006-Obama's America--especially those who voted for Obama without knowing much about his clear adgenda in 2008. Everything in it is backed up by Barack Obama in his very own words. This is NOT propaganda, but clear facts.

This man, Dinesh D'Souza from India, is a contemporary of Obama's who was born the same year and came to America the same year as he. Mr. D'Sousa had some questions, traveled back to Obama's homeland, used his transcript reading from BHO's book, Dreams By My Father, and got the answers. Very thought provoking indeed. A must see if you love this country. Any liberal without clear vision won't like this movie. You have to have eyes to see and ears to hear!

Can you imagine the howling in Utah had something like this been released about Romney.... This is swift boating taken to the extreme. And all the little tea party types, done with there rallies are flocking to the theater to reaffirm their hatred. What a pathetically sad state we are now in our civil history.

For a short time, we preached togetherness, relished the multi-cultural multi-national fabric that made this nation strong. Now were back to habits of the past... really truly pathetic.

Pride and hatred walking hand in hand....

If a liberal disagrees with a conservative, the liberal calls it “free speech”. If a conservative disagrees with a liberal, the liberal calls it “hate speech”.

@one old man and JustGordon - typical responses from happily deluded Obama followers. You haven't seen the movie, and can't point to a single claim from the documentary that is inaccurate. If it's not sunshine about Obama, then by default it's either a lie or should not be disclosed. No need to open your eyes, ears, or mind.

Now THAT'S a sad commentary.

Have you seen the entire movie prior to making this post? Y or N?

What specifically about this movie equates to propaganda other than your opinion?

Have you done any objective open minded independent research of your own to either validate or to disprove the majority of points/issues/questions raised in this film?

What specifically qualifies this movie as "a hate movie"? What makes you privy to the thoughts and intents of this movie's writers?

What specifically are the propagandist lies contained in this movie?

Accusations & emotionally charged, inflammatory verbiage and cliche's add little to this discussion especially when they are not supported by objective facts. Obama has gone to great lengths/spent millions to keep his college transcripts, his admissions to college, his published writings as a member of Harvard Law Review, his selective service card abnormalities and his social security number inconsistencies sealed up and hidden. For a president who preached transparency as a candidate, as President, Obama has been anything but transparent.

Michael Moore and his films were gleefully accepted as fact by the left. Watch their discomfort when the real Barack Obama is uncovered. If only a small portion of this film were true it should make Mr. Obama a one-term president.

Ooohhhh, the leftist nuts are seething! That stupid freedom of speech clause sure can be a nuisance when it gets used by the wrong people! Ha Ha

This "documentary" came in eighth on a slow weekend at the box office. Let's see where it goes now that all the Obama haters have gone...

"Can you imagine the howling in Utah had something like this been released about Romney..."

Romney has no baggage. It would be impossible to make something like this on Romney. That's the knock against him. He's led too boring (depending on your perspective) life. I haven't seen this movie so I can't comment on it. But I did read Dinesh D'Souza's book, "What's So Great About America" and I didn't see anything from him in that book that could be considered extreme.

And for those who think this is disgraceful and hateful, remember, there was a movie made about the assassination of George W. Bush that showed a very realistic shooting scene. There was also at least one book about the same topic that was disgusting.

I plan to go see this movie as soon as I can figure out where it's showing. It would take some doing to change my mind about Obama or Romney, but it's the responsibility of any American to at least listen to and consider ideas and statements from all sides.

As BYUAlum said, "Very thought provoking indeed. A must see if you love this country. Any liberal without clear vision won't like this movie. You have to have eyes to see and ears to hear!"

But with a few words changed, his comment could also apply to the Michael Moore movies that were so detested by conservatives -- most of whom I'll bet never went to see any of them. So how about we turn that around just a bit and say, "Very thought provoking indeed. A must see if you love this country. Any conservative without clear vision won't like any Michael Moore movie. You have to have eyes to see and ears to hear!

A closed mind is a closed mind, whether it be conservative or liberal. And that, neighbors, is a big part of the problem.

I saw the movie.

To all you liberals - the truth hurts. I challenge any of you to answer the questions above from 22ozn44ozglass. Crickets, crickets.

It is no wonder Obama will say, or do anything to maintain power. This country will be defeated, not by any foreign power, but by the enemy from within.

You all keep drinking the Cool-Aid. You will get what you deserve. Mark it down.

There is also a book that can add to this info.
Read "The Amateur".

I virtually never go to movies, but I might make this an exception. Well researched documentaries have merit, and we do need to make informed decisions before we head for the polls. I've enjoyed the comments on the article!
