hollywierd is beginning to have second thoughts about The One:
Tinseltown is turning on Bam

Look out. Hollywood is having a Republican crisis.

Once America’s most dependable bastion of liberal blather, the land of make believe has gone rogue. Each week, the new movie season brings another defection to Camp Romney, a place where taxes are less punishing, foreign policy is reliably pro-Israel, & stupid movies like “Innocence of Muslims’’ are not blamed for costing American lives.

It’s the terrorists, stupid.

You can see this sea change in the new Ben Affleck-directed movie,“Argo.” Once an ardent Obama-phile, the disaffected Hollywood hunk has chosen this election season to take on flaccid Democratic ex-President Jimmy Carter with a terrific and damning (to the government) new film about the 1979-81 Iranian hostage crisis. It seems no accident that the film brilliantly foretells today’s bloody events in the Middle East.

The land that once loved Obama is not stupid when it comes to selling tickets. The unexpected hit of the summer was Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary,“2016: Obama’s America.’’ The stinging big-screen indictment of Obama’s socialist leanings and disloyalty to the state of Israel was — surprise!— produced by the Oscar winner behind “Schindler’s List,”“Rain Man” and “Jurassic Park,” Gerald Molen.

“All of my movies have been about telling the truth,” Molen, a rare Hollywood Republican — who knew?— told The Hollywood Reporter.

Even hard-left filmmaker Michael Moore has grown weary of a commander-in-chief who doesn’t appear up to the job. After Obama’s disastrous performance in the debate against Mitt Romney, Moore tweeted,“If Romney keeps this up ... Obama is going to vote for him!”

“Argo,” with its early Oscar buzz, stellar cast and formerly reliably liberal director in Affleck, may present the most chilling depiction of our enemies since “The Manchurian Candidate.’’

The flick’s backdrop is the snatching of 52 American hostages by Iranians at the US Embassy in Tehran in 1979. The hostage crisis carried on for months, as an impotent Carter couldn’t do anything right.

“Carter’s s--tting enough bricks to build a pyramid,’’ remarks a CIA superior Jack O’Connell (Bryan Cranston).

The CIA, meanwhile, hatches a plot to extract 6 Americans who’ve escaped the embassy & are holed up at the Canadian ambassador’s house. In a real-life drama that was kept secret until the Clinton administration, CIA operative Tony Mendez (Affleck) rescues the 6 Americans after 87 days, convincing the Iranians that the Americans are really part of a Canadian film crew.

The remaining 52 hostages finally came home after a mind-boggling 444 days in captivity. By then, fed-up voters replaced Carter with Republican President Ronald Reagan.

Affleck, no big fan of Romney, has soured on Obama.“I voted for Obama last time, although he got to be all things to all people then,” he said while promoting his film.“And now, he’s got a record, which makes it really different ... I obviously have more complicated feelings.”

“Argo” evokes another complicated recent Middle East crisis: the murders of American Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and 3 colleagues. 5 days after the event, UN Ambassador Susan Rice hit the talk shows, insisting that Stevens’ killing resulted from a “spontaneous” protest rally against “Innocence of Muslims,” a schlocky film seen as insulting to the prophet Mohammed.

The Obama administration wanted to blame the deaths on something out of its control but has since backed off the claim, looking as weak as Jimmy Carter at his most impotent.

In 2012, the Hollywood brain trust knows that images of American strength sell better than those of self-flagellation.

There is hope.

So....WTH we doing in Libya??????????aside from violating war powers acts and aiding and abetting failed statehood terrorism?)
Donley’s best estimate, given to reporters at a breakfast meeting on Tuesday, was that the war has cost the Air Force about $75 million so far, with expenses running to $4 million a day. That was the bill when 89 U.S. planes were directly or indirectly involved in the combat mission. Now he expects it to drop, but to what, he didn’t say.
By contrast, Defense Secretary Robert Gates told Congress last week that without a U.S. combat role in the Libya war, he expects the bill to run to $40 million per month. That doesn’t exactly match the Air Force’s tally. By Donley’s figures, if the Air Force slashed its costs for the war in half, it would still exceed Gates’ totals — and that’s not counting the Navy’s contribution.
None of this confusion should come as a surprise. The Libya war was launched on the fly and its goals are uncertain. No wonder the war bill is written with an Etch-a-Sketch.

In response to the persistent and substantial questions about the math of his tax plan not adding up, Mitt Romney and his campaign frequently argue that six independent studies back him up by ratifying the arithmetic of the centerpiece of his domestic agenda.

But the talking point about the talking point is unraveling.

More and more mainstream from outlets are pointing out that they fail to validate its soundness. And on Sunday Romney senior adviser Ed Gillespie was challenged on Fox News by Chris Wallace, who questioned whether the studies are really nonpartisan.

“Those are very questionable. Some of them are blogs. Some of them are from the AEI [American Enterprise Institute], which is hardly an independent group,” Wallace said.“One of them is from a guy who is — a blog from a guy who was a top adviser to George W. Bush. These are hardly nonpartisan studies.”

“These are very credible sources,” Gillespie said.

Of the six studies, two are blog posts by the conservative American Enterprise Institute; one is a report by the Republican-friendly Heritage Foundation; one is a paper by Princeton professor and former George W. Bush adviser Harvey Rosen; the fifth and sixth are a paper and Wall Street Journal op-ed by Harvard economist Martin Feldstein, an adviser to the Romney campaign.

<quoted text>
Sept. 25:
ABC airs the television show The View, in which Obama is asked about Clinton's statement. "We don't have all of the information yet so we are still gathering," he says. He says there is "no doubt" that "it wasn't just a mob action."
"What we do know is that the natural protests that arose because of the outrage over the video were used as an excuse by extremists to see if they can also directly harm U.S. interests," he says.
In a speech to the United Nations, Obama condemns the attacks and the American filmmaker, saying, "A crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world."
Clinton issues a statement acknowledging that an al-Qaeda affiliate in Libya and other Islamist terror groups "are seeking to extend their reach and their networks in multiple directions."
