      SNAKE? Put on your bi-focals...that's not Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, Coulter, Ingraham, the Cheneys, or any of the other GOP stooges like Newt, Willard, or Rick sitting up there on that picture talking to the masses about 'The Road We've Traveled'!! That's DAVID AXELROD!!! And that road has been a 'snake' of a road too!! With all kinds of cracks, dips, drops, delays, and uneveness!! The good thing is we have to travel just a little longer before we come to the crossroads, and then we will turn LEFT!! LOL!

        What Obama had that his opponents did not was the acceptance and support of elite sectors of the mass communications media. It was their favorable coverage of Obama and his campaign that gave him an edge, propelling him rocket-like to the top of the opinion polls. This helped Obama win key primary election victories, enabling him to rise from an obscure public figure to President-elect in the short space of 9 months.
        Substituted Obama for Carter, nothing has changed in the last 35 years.

        The main stream media are nothing more than shills for Obama. Obama, uses the power of the state, to confiscate other people's hard earned money, squanders it, and finances loser companies, in exchange for political contributions, in an effort to get himself reelected. Obama continues to tell Americans that 2 + 2 = 5 ... and, there's always a bunch of stupid people out there (and posting here), who believe him ... and, are ready to tell the rest of us that he is absolutely right ... and, insult us if we disagree.

    I must admit I was disappointed with Erin's interview of David Axelrod. In particular, her attempt to draw equivalence between remarks of Rush Limbaugh and Bill Maher, and also the talk about GM shares.

    Both have said some pretty insulting, imflammatory things about individual women, but the similarities end there. Maher uses ugly perjoratives about individual women, but then he takes stances of defending women's rights and freedoms. Rush's remarks were grossly insulting not to just an individual woman, but to a much wider group of women. Rush's remarks were not just a one-off either, but something that he just kept building up for three days in a row leading to some really ugly remarks far beyond simply bad words.

    I am also disappointed with Erin's continued remarks about the auto bailout, and the continued focus on just share prices when it comes to taxpayers getting their money back. This is very shortsighted and misleading, and I hope this is purely an oversight on Erin's part and not deliberately misleading. Had the auto industry and supporting industries gone under, a million jobs could have been lost. That's up to a million more people collecting jobless benefits, and up to a million more people not paying taxes. If these workers paid even just $2000 in federal taxes on average–likely a low number given auto worker compensation–that would be around $2 Billion in lost taxation revenue each year. Then think of the additional money they would have spent and the sales taxes and additional income taxes generated by that. This is the issue of much more importance than whether or not taxpayers get their money back just from GM stock prices.

    This documentary is similar to "Triumph of the Will" by Leni Riefenstahl

    Leni Riefenstahl would be proud of this film.

      along with an unwavering complicit mainstream media ... Obama is able to get away with anything.
      For America's sake, hopefully, Obama will not get away with buying a reelection.
      CORRUPTION = When a man, like obama, uses the power of the state, to confiscate other people's hard earned money, squanders it, and finances loser companies, in exchange for political contributions, in an effort to get himself reelected.

        Oh come on Howard.. you can't be serious. When is the last time you turned on an AM radios station without hearing a right wing firebrand? Even TV is dominated by FOX networks and CNN is right leaning as demonstrated by Erin's interview. The real truth is that without the auto bailout, YOU would have probably lost your job and your 401k as the economy would have tanked in a way that made the 2008-9 recession look like a cake walk. Turn off your radio!
