Obama campaign: New documentary out next week, Romney a flawed candidate

(CNN) - On a conference call with reporters Wednesday morning, senior members of President Obama’s re-election campaign announced that they will be releasing a 17-minute documentary next week focusing on the successes of the president’s first term in office.

The short film is directed by Oscar-winning documentarian Davis Guggenheim, whose relationship with Obama goes all the way back to 2008 when he directed a documentary on the president for the Democratic National Convention.

    Obama and Axelrod have every reason to be afraid of trying to run against Mitt Romney, especially with Obama's track record for the last 3 years. And of course, mid-term 2010 elections when voters clearly rejected Obama's failed policies and out-of-control spending. Their problem is that now Mitt Romney is the Hope & Change candidate. Americans are not pleased with what Washington has become in the last 3 years.

    hahaha... Like I said, Obama's worse nightmare has come true. He's gotta start cranking up the smoke and mirror show extra early to try and con the American peope into beleiving we don't have record unemployment, record foreclosures, record debt and record deficits.

    Bu t17 minutes??? It only takes 17 SECONDS to cover the Bin Laden raid. What are they going to lie about for the rest of the time?! Solyndra? Nope... Fast and Furious? Nope... record 8.3% unemployment? Nope... how many more people Obama has put on food stamps? Nope....

    If the Obozo campaign thinks Romeny is a flawed candidate, wait until this country gets a look at the new Breitbart video tonite on the Hannity show. And if they still think Romney is flawed and Obozo is perfect, can they explain why he kept the million dollar contribution from Maher after he said much worse thing about Palin and never apologized and why he did not call Palin's 14 year old daughter after Letterman said those horrible things about her and did not apologize. The hypocrisy of the man is exceeded only by his ineptness, incompetence and corruption.

    Tom Clements: I have issues with that also... but its not Obama's fault. Here in Iowa the stimulus that was given for those who lost their homes our Governor already said only a small amount will go to those people and the rest will be used where he sees fit. The stimulus that was given to the banks had stipulations in it that those banks where to help people get refinanced etc. if your in trouble... guess what... the banks have not told the American people they have 5 options for you and to call them. No, they let you go under, take your home and kept all the stimulus money. It's not Obama... the only fault of Obama's is he puts his trust into our elected officials to make sure his policies are used correctly... guess what.......

    Even given Obama's bogus choice of a "flawed candidate" or a FAILED PRESIDENT, any person with a pulse and 10 live brain cells would pick the "flawed candidate". Why would anybody double down on FAILURE?!!

    How convenient the GOP is to focus on a couple of things Obama hasn't been able to do – while no one is perfect and can't do everything they want, Obama has done much to help America and the working class, not to mention woman, the elderly and the poor.

    Women will remember on voting day who wants to take them back to the 18th Century. These GOP clowns won't be happy until all women are required to wear burqas and be 'owned' by their men. Good Grief they couldn't have picked a more ignorant battle.

    @ Four, Truth & Wired, can you guys EVER add anything positive to the conversation??
    Look forward to November when you can all skulk back to your closets and lick your wounds. You have another four and a half years with President Obama, how are you going to manage your negativity? Hope you have access to therapy. Part of Obamacare, healthcare for all, even you!

    Wireddummy- the Maher contribution is to a SuperPac, which Obama (although he wanted one to support him) is not
    directed to the funding of his campaign. Obama has no control of what the Super Pac will do. You GOPPERS are done for.
