Watching "The Way I See It" (Pete Souza documentary)

It's a remarkable commentary, simple and compelling, tears and smiles, appreciation for what we had and sorrow for what has replaced it. I'm betting that trump is going to shred it as a hit piece.

1. Me too. It's brilliant.

Makes me miss the whole Obama family. Some favorite pictures and stories. Souza has surprised me with how political the documentary is.

5. Just watched it. It's a great film. So many reminders of things I'd forgotten. I's on again at

1AM & I'm going to record it to watch it again.

7. Excellent documentary.


It will make you proud of what we had and wonder what went wrong. There was so much hope and promise for a better way. There were moments to make you laugh. Moments of profound sorrow. But mostly understanding who Obama was and what a real leader looks like and how the right person can take a nation through anything.

tRump, by contrast, is lacking in all the qualities that made Obama a great leader. He will, without a doubt, trash this documentary. But that only underscores the key point of the documentary. tRump is not fit to serve. Obama showed us the exemplar and tRump has tried to destroy it. The memory still remains and the photos in this documentary rekindle the desire to return to decency in the White House. Competence. Empathy. Let us hope on Nov. 3 we send a resounding message to tRump that his time is up and he must go and face the consequences for what he has done. Then we can give a proper welcome to the Biden and Harris family to run this country the way it should be governed. We need some normalcy again.
