President Obama’s Propaganda Video

Academy Award®-winning director Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth) has created a documentary short film for President Obama, entitled “The Road We’ve Traveled.” It’s really a masterful piece of propaganda, but is it dignified for a sitting president to commission something like this?

    i used to like Tom Hanks

  2. The Bin Laden killing is the most unbelievable story.  Maybe that’s because it’s a fairy tale.  Anybody who doesn’t question the “official narrative” is closed-minded and naive. 

    Think about it.  Why would our Gov allow for his killing when they tout all the information they get from their illegal torturing techniques?  And the most obvious part of the lie is that they dumped his body in the ocean immediately afterwards “in accordance with his religion” even though that’s not the standard procedure. 

    And, they conveniently do not have any pictures or video to show the American public.  They showed a handful of Senators and other people of importance and we’re just supposed to watch the mainstream media outlets which are paid for by the same people who pay for the puppet to be in the White House and believe the bullshit they are selling us?

     Approximately when did Americans lose the ability to think critically? It’s amazing to me that anybody would believe this. 

    And after the White House admitted that they staged that infamous photograph where Obama, Biden, Clinton and the gang are watching in horrific anticipation, it is still being thrown around as if they were actually watching a Seal Team 6 member’s helmet cam.

     Now the compound has been torn down before anybody was allowed to enter the place and see or question anything.  Please people, start thinking and asking questions and searching for answers. 

    •  words of a cowardly teabagger. Go away mr nobody, your an unwelcome guest.

      • How dare he question Obama and our wonderful government!

        Kancho your a fool

        • Bite me emc_0 then look up my name.

          • ishmael2009 | Mar 16, 2012 at 6:32 pm |

            No, he’s right. You’re being an asshole, Kancho. Sad thing is, you probably like to think of yourself as being open-minded and liberal. Grow up.

          • Fuck you too lameass. The OP is a hit and run reposter of forum spam. These clowns are just paid sycophants for the Koch Brothers. They troll forums with conspiracy theories right out of Alex Jones.

          Here’s a tip: master your/you’re before you start casting judgements on the perceived intelligence of others.

    • If they can create him, why can’t they kill him?  Sure, we can’t know. Do we even have proof that the boogyman bin Laden was alive until that point?  I don’t know, but it is good that he is ‘dead,’ or at least out of the narrative, because now, the US has lost any conceivably justifiable reason to be continuing the Af-Pak War and the occupation of Afghanistan.

    • Nothing in the world happens that isn’t seamlessly orchestrated by the US go’vt for nefarious ends. If you believe the official narrative that poop gets in your butt because your body digests food then you need to wake up–the CIA puts it there to keep the American people too distracted with bowel movements to notice what’s going on. Wake up, sheeple!

    the answer to the post’s question is ‘no’.

  4. The Answer to the post question is Yes.  One of the important jobs of a president any president is to be a motivator. A coach in a game. I understand that as a Constitutional Law Prof Obama was going to be  savvy on the intricacies of how Government was “supposed” to work according to the rules. I also expected that the sausage making was something he would have to learn.  One major point the left out of the it could be worse message was Sarah Palin could be President. That is the most terrifying thought I can think of. Politics aside she was a shithead. I don’t like anyone in the republican side today and I doubt I am alone in that. Obama will pretty much oversee the recovery

    • Liam_McGonagle | Mar 16, 2012 at 2:08 pm |

      Don’t you think it would have been more motivational to veto the indefinite detention provision in the NDAA?  Or to sustain the Democratic caucus’ attempt to filibuster renewal of Bush II tax cuts in November 2010?  While they still had majorities in both houses?

      What Obama’s doing is obfuscating, not motivating.  That’s why no one has any faith in the Dem “leadership” any longer.  The mere fact that, against all odds, Republicans have managed to go stupider than anyone ever dared imagine shouldn’t be of any interest to anyone with a backbone.

      • yeah but seriously do you think he has a lot of choices with the current congress? He’s surrounded by Cowards, weaklings, crazies and most of all crooks. (Hi Mr Cantor!)

        • Marklar_Prime | Mar 16, 2012 at 5:57 pm |

          Does he have to eat children on live television before the hopenosis wears off for some people?

          • isn’t you name really Malarkey_prime? Well it is after all the diet of Kenyans right? I got a picture of Bush biting into a kitten but everybody though it was a Photoshop. And true children are delicious but I can never eat a whole one.

          • Marklars like you need to realize that you’re a Marklar. Clearly Marklar is pointing out Marklar’s Marklar. But you have too much Marklar to see Marklar’s Marklar.

    Why not? Preservation eats up most of a politician’s time and energy. A major part of that initiative is mythmaking- and not always just lying; rather, summarizing their legacy into soundbites for easy voter digestion. Every politician does it. Why not the sitting president?

    Hey, it’s not propaganda, man, it’s free speech, man.

    • Ceausescu | Mar 16, 2012 at 9:54 pm |

      A really deep, thoughtful, very intentional, and strategic form of free speech.

      This serie of adjectives should become a meme =)

    If corporations can spend millions and millions of dollars purchasing advertisements for the other side, why can’t he have his own?


    he’s mad as hell and he’s not gonna take it anymore

  9. Liam_McGonagle | Mar 16, 2012 at 2:00 pm |

    I liked the director’s cut better, where they left in the scene with Obama and Bush high-fiving one another while gang banging Lady Liberty.

  10. Eisenhower was doing the same thing back in ’52, and it’s been a part of the political process ever since.

  11. tomasiepants | Mar 16, 2012 at 5:22 pm |

    Seriously, people can’t really believe this stuff right?  Obama and Bush are the SAME. 

    • Ceausescu | Mar 16, 2012 at 9:43 pm |

       I actually think Obama has more issues than Bush. Mental issues, to be concise.

  12. Lost respect for Tom Hanks over this, very sad Tom, I used to like you.   This is such a joke, it is really a shame that most Americans are unable and unwilling to research any of this issues themselves.  All it will take for millions to become indoctrinated is simply seeing this video.  I am sure come Monday we will see stories about this being played in classrooms and school assemblies as well. 

  13. I like how all the comments on youtube are pro-Obama, not one single comment i can find criticising anything about this video.

  14. ObamaSUCksDicks | Mar 18, 2012 at 12:02 pm |

    I posted a long drawn out comment on YouTube and the reason the negative comments are not being posted is because the person who posted the video has to approve the comments. They are only allowing positive comments to be allowed. That’s why 1000 comments are all positive comments. Wow Obama is going to get re elected and we have to sit back and not try to help these dumb people who have been brain washed by sound bits and clips like this one. This video about made me want to go throw up and turn this video off. If I could hack I would goto every site posting this and destroy their whole website……HOMELAND SECURITY if your reading this FUCK YOU and the worthless OBAMA. I’m not even going to give him the glory of me putting president in front of his name.
