Hollywood eager to help. You just knew something like this was going to happen right in time for the election.
Obama's record on the economy is so abysmal that he needs to remind the public of how he single-handedly took out Osama bin Laden. Like he had a lot to do with it.
From Weasel Zippers:
White House Working With Hollywood To Release Bin Laden Movie To Counter Obama’s Image Problem Before Election…
"Via Maureen Dowd, NY Times:
'. . .The White House is counting on the Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal big-screen version of the killing of Bin Laden to counter Obama’s growing reputation as ineffectual. 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.
The moviemakers are getting top-level access to the most classified mission in history from an administration that has tried to throw more people in jail for leaking classified information than the Bush administration.
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.'"
Try to imagine the wall-to-wall advertising this movie will receive from the American Pravda.
