Reacting to the Aug. 30 letter about the documentary 2016: Obamas America, in which Michael Sullivan wrote: What a coincidence that this propaganda film arrives at exactly the same time as the GOP convention I am stunned! Who would time a films release to attract its largest audience and potentially maximize profits?
One basis for Sullivans indignation at people calling Obama a non-American socialist is a silly Mitt Romney joke about Obamas birthplace. However, Obama himself is the source of this nonsense. To wit: the biography provided by the publisher of his memoir (the first, of two, from a law firm associate!) stated that the author, one Barack Obama, was born in Kenya.
Sullivan seems equally offended that some believe the president is a socialist. In his book, Obama informs us that his mentor was Frank Marshall Davis, a socialist writer and card-carrying member of Communist Party USA. He goes on in this literary masterpiece to describe choosing friends carefully, Marxist Professors and other far-leftists, so as not to be seen a sellout. His administration is filled with the same types of people.
Many Americans believe the presidents policies are rooted in socialism and have not worked; history tells us they never will.
