Just like the title says, Love him or Hate him, you need to see this movie.

It's an American's responsibility to know all they can about the President of our country.

But just good enough to open some eyes. True die hard Democrats will hate it as you can see by the rating but if one takes off the blinders they will see a much better of "The One".I have to ask myself why anyone would spend upwards of 3 million dollars to seal school records and just about any other record that matters and the media turns a blind eye. I have let several people borrow this and all came back with different opinions of Obama, even two die hards!

I expected a hit piece but instead I watched a really thoughtful movie emerge. Certainly this isn't flattering to President Obama but much of it is in his own words or those by people who know him or his father personally. I was intrigued by the idea that he sent the bust back from the White House and wouldn't think he'd have the right to do that. I don't understand why he isn't helping out his very poor half brother yet is speaking often of helping the poor, help begins at home. It seems Obama was elected because of a "perfect storm" and slogans of hope and change were like medicine to a sick nation. Unfortunately, it's four years later and the results promised were not delivered. Whether you agree or not with this movie certainly there is something to be learned from it. I am certain people who love Obama will hate the movie and people who hate Obama will love the movie. It's those in the middle, unbiased to begin with that will be the best test to watch this. I voted for Obama in 2008 but I am greatly disappointed in him now. I learned a lot from this movie, particularly about his father and the estrangement that seemed to haunt Obama. I found it sad and moving. Yet haunting. Obama is an unlikely president in a center right nation. Running on ideals was perfect in 2008 however running on a wretched record in 2012 is a different story. I think Obama will be better served to lose this reelection instead of igniting his ego he will be challenged to look deep inside.

Once you see this video, things you've wondered about President Obama's actions will start to fall into place. It is creatively superb. The filming and script are terrific. We saw it in the theater and now are buying the video because this is a part of history and we want to own a copy.

The author/narrator is great, but we were particularly moved by hearing Obama's voice explaining his life and his motivation, i.e. what is "in my genes" at his father's gravesite. Two weeks ago we saw on the news a map showing all the countries where our embassies were under siege, and my husband pointed out that looked just like the map at the end of 2016 Obama's America. He was right. Just as the movie said and right there before our eyes.

This video is worth its price and more.

For those unfamiliar with the premise, 2016: Obama's America follows bestselling author Dinesh D'Souza's carefully chosen steps as he travels the world in an attempt to better understand Barack Obama. The journey takes him from the Hawaiian Islands to Indonesia; from the slums of Nairobi, Kenya to the seat of the world's largest superpower in Washington, D.C. Along the way he interviews relatives, scholars, and other sources of information on Obama's life.

This movie should not be mistaken for a conspiracy theorist's quest for truth on Obama. There are no baseless charges or accusations based on the place of Obama's birth, religion or college transcripts. In fact, about fifteen minutes into D'Souza's film he matter-of-factly states Obama was born in Hawaii, as was reported by two Hawaiian newspapers on the day of his birth. Even Slate's Dave Weigel begrudgingly acknowledges D'Souza stands on "mostly solid" ground, steering clear of conspiracy charges making rounds in conservative circles.

Instead, D'Souza intentionally traces the steps of Obama's upbringing, attempting to explain Obama's sometimes baffling decisions. Decisions like returning a bust of Winston Churchill to Great Britain at the beginning of his presidency, delaying the construction of the Keystone pipeline while giving money to South American countries to drill for oil, cherry-picking where to intervene in the Middle East (e.g. using force in Libya but not Iran or Syria), reducing America's nuclear arsenal while making no moves to stop Iran from making nuclear weapons, and reducing NASA's mission to Muslim outreach are all examined. D'Souza's conclusion? Obama is an anti-colonialist.

Anti-colonialism, D'Souza explains, is the worldview that sees America's net effect in the world as bad, not good.

As this movie postulates, the mentors from Obama's past include some very radical figures, including Frank Marshall Davis, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, Edward Said, and Roberto Unger. I would add to this list the team of Cloward and Piven and Alynsky. Not one of these people have much good to say about the United States and its citizens. As I continue to watch what Obama does instead of listening to his oratory, it is clear that these figures have had a lasting effect on Obama's world view and true feelings toward the USA.

Many listen to Obama's words and believe that he has tempered his radical mentoring with love of country and a firm understanding and respect for the Constitution. I would argue that Obama and his attorney general Holder have used the government as a political and economic weapon to stifle investigations into corruption at the IRS, weapons smuggling by the BATFE, wiretapping of the press and botched foreign intelligence gathering and protection of diplomatic staff in Benghazi.

The film argues that Obama wants to reduce significantly the U.S.'s influence within the world while increasing the influence of nations that he believes have suffered or been held back economically or militarily due to U.S. and Western domination. This grand accomplishment of moral relativism would be a charming legacy for Obama and those who support him, which is over half of the US electorate. Perhaps, in their minds, it would right some of the wrongs from our nation's past treatment of Indians, Vietnamese, and Banana Republics.

What is unfortunate about this naivete is that where US leadership and moral courage falter (imperfect as it might be), the vacuum is filled by nations and powers with far worse intent than the US, and with no morals to be relativistic about. Unfortunately, this feckless paradigm seems to be growing among the political royalty in Washington, and on both sides of the aisle.
