I'm especially glad that the Obama: 2016 movie didn't cause any real damage

Stupid racist conspiracy theories like that can really catch people. There's something that makes people love conspiracy theories. But the only people who bought it were already going to vote for Romney anyway.

1. How could it have? It was STUPID as hell and chockful of lies and obfuscations..

No, GollyGee, there was never any danger of that happening. Perhaps, if this was 1972or 1982 but not now. Even pundits on the right laughed at it and sneered at it's value.

6. I remember the swift boaters

and that's what I thought of when it happened. People bought that. Add in some racism and it might have gotten a lot of attention. But it didn't.

18. Yes, but this was so over the top and full of things that were so easily debunked, it wasn't funny.

It was full of crazier than normal birther crap and crap about how his father was some socialist Communist black guy here in the US and something about how he wants to get revenge on the president.

2. In 4 years we can watch the movie (if it can still be found)

to make fun of the inaccuracies.

14. I was coerced into watching it

There's so little factual content about 2016 that there's essentially nothing to check. It's about 75% fact-free psychobabble speculation not about Obama but that guy Clint Eastwood was talking to and 25% Dinesh D'Souza autobiography.

Edited to add: I watched a free online stream - no money went into the hands of the makers of the film!

3. If I'm not mistaken, it did serious damage...

To Dinesh D'Souza.

4. The only people who would have watched it were those who would never vote for O anyway. I'd guess

That the only people who were even AWARE of it were racist rabid Obama haters anyway.

7. You might be right

I kept hearing about it from two racist rabid Obama haters, but I didn't hear anything about it from anyone else.

10. I heard of it, but never bothered watching it b/c I figured it was lies.

Much like the one on Clinton...I said forget these fools.

5. Echo Chamber

I think the only people who went to see it were already convinced of the Marxist Apocalyptic nature of the Obama administration.

8. Some guy in my neighborhood

in addition to the 5 Robme/Lyan signs in his yard, had a homemade sign in his yard saying "2016 - End of the world if Obama elected."

He put it up a day or two after the movie premiered so I figured it was in response to the movie. Just one more loser.

I'm also glad the DVD mailed apparently by the millions in swing states appeared to cause no harm. I'd say these attempts at smearing Obama probably backfired, driving up more interest in voting against the Thugs.

Of copies of the POS documentary.

17. Did anybody actually see it? I don't think so.

So, it had zero effect. If anyone did see it, they were already decided, anyhow.
