> The Washington Post Gushes In Love Over Obama First-Date Movie(Laugh or Puke)

The Washington Post is unsurprisingly in love with the new Obama-puffing film about Barack and Michelle’s first date. Movie critic Ann Hornaday won the prize for the biggest gush, comparing Obama to young Abe Lincoln:

Like the warm summer day it chronicles, Southside With You possesses a mellow, languorous vibe, an infectious easygoing charm that insinuates itself gently, then seductively, as the couple at its center experiences the stirrings of what might be true love.

That the two young people in question are named Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson almost feels like an afterthought in Richard Tanne’s modest but enormously enjoyable throwback of a movie. Imagine a cross between John Ford’s Young Mr. Lincoln and Richard Linklater’s Before Sunrise, and you get a sense of the tone of a movie that tiptoes to the edge of hagiography but never falls in, at least entirely.

Hornaday's comparing Obama to Lincoln, so maybe she's not the best judge of what's a hagiography. She then quickly said Obama's "pathological haters" won't want to see it, and links to fellow partisan Post hack Petula Dvorak trashing the hatred (obviously racial) of Obama critic

LOLOLOLOL! Srsly? What next? The lyin' king went on to become a senator, their story was the basis for the book 'Love Story' by Erich Seigel, he invented the internet, he discovered glow bull warming and she railed against the music industry for their often disgusting lyrics filled with hate and calling for cops to be killed. Oh, sorry. That was another love story. Straight to DVD?

Any scenes of 0bama and Larry Sinclair and Man’s Country in this bio pic of his early Chicago days? Rev. Wright, the choir boy in the church who was murdered?

i.e. they wrote a love story and then decided to name the main Characters Obama and Michelle and make one black and the other mulatto.

Why in the world would anyone want to see a movie about Obama and Michelle's first date?

Have we skidded over into "Great Leader" territory now?

Why on earth would these liberals want to deify such a loser as Obama?

hagiography

That's a new word for me...

Full Definition of hagiography

1 : biography of saints or venerated persons

2 : idealizing or idolizing biography

These libtards truly are mentally ill...

BARACK OBAMA, you are no ABRAHAM LINCOLN.

I dunno, Race Obsessed Liberal Lawyer from Illinois who racked up massive amounts of Federal debt, seems pretty similar to me.

The left considers Lincoln homosexual because he roomed with some guy in his youth. Maybe the comparison isn’t such a stretch for them.

I saw publicity stills. The casting director is either legally blind or has never seen a recent, in focus photo of the Obamas.

And if you don’t go see it, you’re racist. If it bombs, whitey’s fault.

Isn't it obvious that we've been there for the last 8 years? Can you imagine how badly the movie critics would have savaged a flick, circa 1973, about the love story of young Dick and Pat Nixon?

Totally correct. Actually part of the review already sets up those dang racist who deny such an engaging story. Sick? Uh, yeah.

The Left’s great iconoclast in recent decades has been JFK. But, as we can see through the lens of history, JFK was a lot less socialist/liberal in nature than what is needed for today’s new progressive movement. They have to invent a new past, with a new hero. Obama is that hero.

As his presidency fades into the sunset, the Left sees the opportunity to turn the Obama story into some sort of new-fangled “Camelot” myth (just like they did with Kennedy).

In time, he will be considered by all of academia as the greatest president ever. He will become the essence of Big Brother.
