Did I say gently mocks? LOL, I was kidding. It’s about as gentle as a sledgehammer.
Minor quibble – Instead of saying, “after four years, the only bad thing they found about their time in office was that it was just too good” should read, “he (Obama)was just too good”.
The Daily Caller reported on the cost of the Obama propaganda film, Thursday:
Records filed by Obama for America with the Federal Election Commission indicate that the president’s re-election campaign shelled out at least $345,353 to commission “The Road We’ve Traveled,” a 17-minute campaign documentary by Academy Award-winning director Davis Guggenheim, set for release Thursday. The price comes out to more than $20,300 per minute.
And it’s even creepier than we imagined it would be, thanks in large part to Tom Hanks’ narration and the weeping Obamabots.
Bullet People has a shorter version: The Road We’ve Traveled in 10 Minutes
The American Thinker: Coming Soon: The Commercials that Obama Fears
PSSSST….RNC: Ed Lasky has written the commercial for you. You need to get someone on this:
…there is a delicious irony in taking advantage of Obama’s Obama Obsession. He has been so busy bloviating over the last few years, so eager to display his omniscience when it comes to energy, that there is plenty of visual material to cull from the public domain that can and will be used against him as the campaign season rolls on, if the GOP has any brains. Call it divine justice that the man who seemingly can never stop talking can be hoisted on his own petard.
One can start with a graph of how gas prices have gone from $1.84 when Obama took office to $3.79 and climbing during March (and this is before the summer driving season spikes them upward). Then there’s the voice we have heard so many times over the years that it seems to come straight from George Orwell’s 1984: Barack Obama talking during the campaign about his wish to see higher gas prices. Fade to Ken Salazar, Obama’s choice to head the Department of Interior — the department that has done so much to stop oil exploration and development on federal land. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell proposed a bill to encourage offshore oil drilling. Ken Salazar kept objecting to the bill even when McConnell suggested that the amendment be triggered when gas prices hit $10 a gallon at the pump. Even when gas prices hit $10 a gallon, Salazar was opposed to allowing more offshore drilling. The YouTube clip can be found here.
Then pair it up with Energy Secretary Chu telling us in 2008 that his desire is to figure out “how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.” He is well on his way to accomplishing his goal.
