So they managed to find 40 people who voted for Obama with unrealistic expectations about what he was going to do for them, paid them to talk about it in a documentary, and they want us to go and pay to see it.

Not happening.

Probably about the same number of millions that will feel the same way at the end of any presidential term. I think most people way over estimate the power of the president change things.

The only Hope I had in Obama being elected was that there would be a Change in how the lower end of this country looks at the big picture.

I had hoped that seeing "the first black president" would inspire people that anything can be accomplished through determination, hard work, But, it seems as though many people just figured the government was suddenly going to hand them everything they needed instead of having to work for it and in the end they all still think that they are being held down by the man. Now that the man isn't a Republican their focus has switched back to the age old scapegoat...rich people.

I remember saying at one point that at least having a change at the top would make the suggestible people in this country think the system has changed...I have yet to see any evidence of that. If anything it just seems like everyone has become complacent with the way things are.

No if it was it would be about how the rich are not paying thier fare share. Like him, he is rich and according to his own words he does not pay enough in taxes.

Exactly like that. Either side can make a film that makes their viewpoint look good and the opposition look bad. The sheeple of the country will eat that shit up and make the film makers rich in the process.

It doesn't mean a thing.
