Election Thoughts: Not Much Has Changed
There continue to be some close poll numbers, but really not much has changed since Paul Ryan was added to the ticket. We are about 2 months away from the election and if nothing changes, it will end up another Obama landslide.
I saw that there is an Obama "documentary" (2016: Obama's America) that I suppose talks about Obama being anti-American. I hadn't even heard of the movie but there was a link on Yahoo about it. The movie opened up last month and has made $9.2 million since it opened. If you look at the comments at the bottom of the page on Yahoo, it is clear how much hate is out there. No big deal - a bunch of people hate Obama. The thing that gets me is how stupid some of the haters are.
They talk about the film as if it is really taking off. With a box office of $9.2 million, it is next to nothing. More people saw the story about it on Yahoo than actually saw the movie. I am sure it is just a slick hit job funded by rich elites. No one wants to see it anyway.
By comparision, "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" made $37 million earlier this summer. That movie quickly disappeared. If you are interested in documentaries, Farenheit 9/11 made $119 million in its box office run. That puts this film into some perspective.
