This President and Lincoln are similar in that both to this point in history are transformative figures and neither had an intelligent equal on the opposing side.

But you wait until the movie is released for final confirmation. Just remember you heard it here first!!!!

BOAN was a good movie, Intolerance droned on and on for about 4 hours, and was just a soap opera.

oh I fully expect a movie about Obama...Will Smith will play him, he's already got the big ears, no need for stunt ears, and whoopi Goldberg can play michelle, a perfect match. Whoopi plays a big black angry woman to perfection. I expect Oscars all round.

A film bio of Obama? Besides Smith and Whoopi, they'll need someone to play Ted Cruz (Narcissus?), and John Boehner (Mantan Moreland?), Mitch McConnell (Herman Munster?), Rand Paul (Richard Simmons?), Rush Limbaugh (Mount Vesuvius?- unless it's too old for the part), Georgie Bush (an open call for a tree-stump type?), and so many others. Oh, and Torquemada as Dick Cheney.
Sarah Palin can play itself.

You're right. The majority of conservatives are the Tea Party. We are learning how un-conservative most "republicans" really or or aren't.

the esteemed prez is busy urinating on the bodies of the 26 servicemembers killed in action the last 10 days after he vetoed the bill passed unanimously by house and senate for his signature to pay military death benefits. His pitiful excuse because a charity stepped up in the vacum created by pentagon lawyers to pay the 26 widows he doesn't need to do it. So what is the fool going to do with the next 10, 25, 100 dead servicemembers arrive ? Pass a hat around the barracks for the new widows ? Beyond bizarre, they need to override his veto tonite, then impeach the commie and throw him and his tribe out of the peoples house. How you feel about it now mclame ?

So there you have it!
America does not negotiate with terrorists--political, civilian, domestic, or foreign. The G-roup O-f P-olitical T-errorist E-uropean A-merican are no exception. America should not negotiate with the GOPTEA as they hold the government and our economy hostage.

They also say they are "conservative" but they spent like drunken sailors during the Bush years and grew government to legislate religion like their definition of marriage.

I can say I acknowledge that I look like Brad Pitt---doesn't make it true.

no movie about Obama could possibly have any republicans in it, just a bunch of mirrors and adoring minions. For that matter, Beyoncé and Jay Z could play the leads, but Jay would need to ear work, and beyonce might have to put on a couple of pounds.
