Re-election move oops I mean movie
In what I see as a move to counter Obama's crashing popularity, Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal (the producers of 'The Hurt Locker') are planning an Oct 2012 pro-Obama propaganda movie about the killing of douchebag extraordinaire Osama bin Laden. The White house is giving UNPRECEDENTED access to the operations intel. Hmmm, I wonder if it's coincidence that the Presidential election is only a month later.
Remember, THEY can have UNPRECEDENTED access to the intel, but the pictures of OBL's body are to disturbing for us.

The Sony film by the Oscar-winning pair who made “The Hurt Locker” will no doubt reflect the president’s cool, gutsy decision against shaky odds. Just as Obamaland was hoping, the movie is scheduled to open on Oct. 12, 2012 — perfectly timed to give a home-stretch boost to a campaign that has grown tougher.
Cool and Gutsy? Right. I used Gutsy in my description as well.
It was clear that the White House had outsourced the job of manning up the president’s image to Hollywood when Boal got welcomed to the upper echelons of the White House and the Pentagon and showed up recently — to the surprise of some military officers — at a C.I.A. ceremony celebrating the hero Seals.
The Main Stream Media (MSM) would love it if we forgot this.
I don't know if the backlash is ONLY political. But Rep. Peter King (R., N.Y.), chairman of Homeland Security Committee is going apesh!t about it. He does have some valid concerns about the security of the SEALS.

“I write to express concern regarding ongoing leaks of classified information regarding sensitive military operations,” Mr. King wrote.
“It is the violation of the law to provide classified information” to people not cleared to receive it, Col. David Lapan, the Pentagon spokesman, said.
These statements pretty much sum up my feelings.
I've never hidden the fact that I'm no Obama supporter. But I will admit, I'll see the movie when it comes out. It won't change my opinion of Obama. But I will go see it.
