From Hope and Change to Disillusioned in just 4 years

by NW Spotlight

Citizens United has created an hour-long film about disillusioned Obama voters titled ‘The Hope and the Change’. It is described as “The surprising personal journeys of 40 Democrats and Independents from across America who supported Obama in 2008.”

Peter J. Boyer has an excellent article on the background of the film on Newsweek/The Daily Beast.

The film’s rollout will begin with an hour-long special on Fox News today, hosted by Sean Hannity. But that’s not where the film’s maker is looking to get his message heard. PBS is planning to broadcast a panel discussion on the film’s subject—disillusioned Obama voters, and the ad money for the film will be spent at MSNBC and CNN. The film’s maker, David Bossie, said “I’m not gonna preach to the choir with this film.”

The ‘Hope and the Change’ will make its premiere at a screening next week at the Republican National Convention in Florida.

    This amateur never disillusioned me as I had no hope for anything when he was elected.

    I saw him for what I thought he was, but it has, unfortunately, turned out that he is much worse than I had even imagined. I wonder if some will ever admit to the damage he has done to our country?probably not!

  • I am one of the choir but I am looking forward to seeing this movie. It is always gratifying to have one’s preconceived opinions confirmed. For those who were willing to spend some time researching Mr. Obama, there was plenty of material available before 2008. The way he demonized one of his opponents also running for the Illinois senate was quite enlightening about his character. Voting nothing but ‘present’ except in the case of a new law that would save full term babies who survived an abortion, he voted against. One didn’t even have to read his book, you know the one that was written by his friend Ayers.

      Fiends, d’ohmans, lemmingmen, do not lend me your Ayers.
