totally insane

’2016: Obama’s America’ filmmaker defends against critics
The film's central argument is an alarming one: The president's dream or primary goal is to weaken America, make it less wealthy, less powerful, and less influential in the world.
 "I think Obama's dream is a dream of global justice," says D'Souza. "And he wants to redistribute wealth away from the United States and toward other countries. And he also wants to redistribute power, he wants to shrink America's footprint in the world because he thinks we've been stepping on the world."
 D'Souza's film ignores evidence that conflicts with his view of Obama. For example, the fact that President Obama sent 30,000 additional troops to Afghanistan, significantly increased drone strikes on Al-Qaeda targets in the Pakistani tribal areas, and made the call to go after Osama Bin Laden. This does not seem like a president who is acting in a way to limit America and to make it a weaker country in the world.
For more on D'Souza and his documentary, including how, according to this filmmaker, Obama supports 100 percent taxation, check out this week's Spinners and Winners. 

 There is not even a twisted logic to this - Obama struggled to become the leader of the most powerful country in the world in order to weaken it? And despite all of the evidence to the contrary? And he supports 100% taxation?! How would that even work?

 How anyone could compare this quack to Michael Moore - whose documentaries are based on facts that no one has ever been able to dispute (other than minor details, like Moore saying he was born in Detroit when he was born right outside of Detroit) - is beyond me. I guess it is the "liberal media" trying to make false equivalencies again.
