Recently saw the movie. D'Souza does a fairly good job making his case that indeed, Obama is currently living the dream of his father, and it's not necessarily an American dream. Some observations...
In scanning the audience (it was mostly full in a reasonably large theater) I might have been one of the youngest there. And I'm not that young. Just wild guessing but I'm sure that amongst the group a lot of people were probably familiar with the various storylines about Ayers, Wright and Davis. If D'Souza's movie is to enlighten anyone it will have to draw a younger audience. I felt almost uncomfortable even eating popcorn during the show as if it was disrespectful or something (I don't get movie popcorn that often so to heck with that perception) since nobody else was consuming that I could tell.
Something else that lept out was how good we have it in America compared to the Third World. It's not a mystery, just something average Americans don't think about. It's what drives some liberals--surely Stanley Anne Dunham being one of them--to do something about it. And there's nothing wrong with wanting to help your fellow man. There's nothing wrong with seeing abject poverty, hopelessness and brutality and wanting to stop it. The question is how best to help.
And therein lies the movie. D'Souza, a product of Third World parents, sees America as the last best hope for the planet precisely due to our system of rights (coming from a Creator not men) while Obama--the product of one Third World parent--see America as the problem. The dream, the change, is to rectify that problem by changing America, not the Third World. D'Souza sees it exactly the opposite, and makes the case with several growing economies around the world who've embraced a more capitalistic style.
What kept swirling through my brain while watching all of this was the idea that it took a feature-length movie to even posit the question, a question the media should have debated long ago. It still looms. The GOP just did a great job of clarifying their position on it, including Clint's strange conversation with the chair. Now, will the Democrats own it?
