’2016: Obama’s America’ DVDs Mailed to Hundreds of Lawmakers

“The movie has been a good predictor of Obama’s behavior and of the policies these lawmakers will be dealing with, so we sent it to them,” says filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza.

While President Barack Obama was summing up the state of the union during a nationally televised speech Tuesday night, hundreds of copies of a DVD featuring an interview with his impoverished half-brother were being mailed to senators, congressmen, the governors of all 50 states and the nine Supreme Court justices.

One copy of the movie, 2016: Obama’s America, also was mailed to the president at his White House address and another went to Vice President Joe Biden.

The film tries to make the point that Obama’s agenda is bad for America and that the rationale for his policies stems from a hard-left ideology that was instilled in him by the example set by his absentee father. One of the more compelling scenes is an interview with George Obama, the president’s half-brother who was living in a hut near Nairobi, Kenya at the time.

2016 was released theatrically in July and raked in $33.5 million, enough to make it the second biggest political documentary in U.S. history, right behind Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11.

    Good documentary They make did a great job of putting all the facts in a easy to follow chronological order . It was all very factual and straightforward and Obama has to hate it (: it just shows him for what he is .. Its follows his 1st book Dreams of My Father rather tightly but gets more in too the financial disorder he is causing and why he wants to cause this . The end game is in there.
    All I would say is that any citizen country ever saw this movie or read his book and voted for him either was crazy or brain dead from the koolaid or they have been feeding from the Gov. teats so long they wanted to keep those Free Cell phones and pay checks coming in..
    But anyone who had ever worked and paid taxes for their entire lives and voted for the idiot all I can say is well you and myself unfortunately got what you deserved next time know your enemy and stay away from the free kool aid..
