2016: Obama's America Documentary Rallies the Opposition

by at . Comments

The controversial new documentary 2016: Obama's America became a bona fide box office hit over the weekend, grossing $6.3 million and rallying conservatives in the run-up to the Republican National Convention this week in Tampa, Fla.

Dinesh D’Souza and John Sullivan’s film opened last month in just a few theaters, but has now earned over $9 million, tops among documentaries in 2012.

The anti-Barack Obama film offers a speculative, conservative vision of the President's second term, should he win one at the ballot box this November.

Spoiler alert: Said vision is not pretty.

2016: Obama's America has been advertised and promoted heavily on talk radio and was distributed to coincide with this week's Mitt Romney-led convention.

Reactions to the film have been predictably mixed, as the true believers in D’Souza's anti-Obama crusade will be even more fired up ... as will Obama supporters.

@Matt: Yes, I thought Ann Romney knocked it out of the park tonight! Excellent, heart-warming speech! Christie gave a good speech as well..not overly tough...but he got the message out! I feel very good about the whole situation. Think Romney will get a real bounce from this!

@Eyes- WHAT AN OPENING RNC NIGHT! All the Govenors were good! Ann Romney- " Mitt doesn't like to talk about helping others because he sees it as a Privilege not a political talking point!" I really like her! I wasn't sure where she was going with the "Love" topic but she did well! I do beleive Romney- HE DOES NOT SEE FAILURE AS AN OPTION! He will get us in the Black! Chris C. He did great- he pointed out what we knew- top 25% of HS seniors in Mass. Got free Tuition. Romney also gave HS teachers that excelled in Science & Math- gave them a bonus'! Great 1st night! Didn't trash Bamie- to much class! More than those sorry ass democrats will show! Great crowd & speakers!

I'm so glad "2016" is picking up as a box office hit! Can't wait till "The Hope and the Change" hits the theaters. Yes, America needs to hear the truth about Obama. It's time. The latter film will be powerful because it focuses on Dems as well as Independents who voted for Obama and now realize how abysmally poor Obama's performance as President went these past 4 yrs. and won't be voting for him this time around. Romney/Ryan 2012!

Matt- getting it up his ass? Then you send a nasty gram in regards to me? WOW! I will attempt to tell you this- ONLY ONCE! I DO NOT DEAL WITH IP! I do not control HG and I know no one at HG! PERSONALLY- I have had my own stuff erased in the past! I also DO NOT CRY LIKE A BITCH WHEN MINE GETS ERASED! I DO NOT WRITE HG AND I DONT TRY TO DICTATE PROTOCOL! You have at some point pissed someone off! You will not list a user and your mouth is filthy when it doesn't have to be! This site runs ads and my guess is if they are to stay in business then they will have to present a product with some degree of professionalism. Then again- I could be wrong! Bottom line- your making yourself look even more ignorant than you already are! I personally don't give a damn about you one way or another but still- in placing blame, your chasing ghosts & you sound like you are a person who is a about to be in over your head!
