Piers Morgan In Disbelief Over Filmmaker’s Inability To Find Fault In Barack Obama: ‘Oh, Come Off It’

On his show Thursday, CNN’s Piers Morgan entered into a rather heated discussion with filmmaker Davis Guggenheim — the man behind the new very pro-Barack Obama documentary The Road We’ve Traveled — on the apparent lack of balance in his film.

When asked what negatives he focused on in order to balance the positives highlighted in his documentary, Guggenheim replied that “the negative for me was that there were too many accomplishments.” (Note: This response works even less in the context of a job interview.)

“Oh, come off it,” said Morgan, rather Britishly. “You can’t say that with a straight face! Come on.” But, evidently, Guggenheim could. He really, really could.

And so Morgan tried again: “Where do you find fault in [President Obama]? Personally?”

After a lengthy pause, the director concluded that, as it turns out, he finds no fault in Obama.

“He’s a perfect human being?” asked Morgan.

“Well, no,” Guggenheim admitted. “But I’m really quite in awe of him as a leader. And the choices he’s made.”

Infatuated like a tween girl at a Justin Bieber concert.

Here’s the preview for the “documentary” Guggenheim made:

    Awwww, he’s in love.

    Could he be more pathetic. There are so many of these koolaid zombies wandering around. Some of them may even write for the New Republic, under new ownership.

    The newest owner of The New Republic magazine is Chris Hughes, a new-media guru who co-founded Facebook and helped to run the online organizing machine for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign.

    Well – I’m not a fan of Piers, generally… but I do give him major props for calling this ‘filmmaker’ out on his clear bias. The last 10 seconds are like every conversation I’ve ever had with an Obot – you know, the exposing of the ridiculous and all.

    good times.

    • honora says:

      I have never watched his show, but he was wonderful in that clip. The Obot couldn’t even understand the nature of the question. How could anyone, other than an evil, racist Republican, find fault with Obama????

      • votermom says:

        I like him as the mean judge on America’s Got Talent (mean judges on talent shows make me laugh).
        I have never watched his talk show.

  4. Lulu says:

    I’ll be honest. It is like an especially creepy fetish and it makes my skin crawl. I think they see him as a Christ-like figure and I have no idea why?

  5. LandOLincoln says:

    Does anyone ever think to ask these fool Obots exactly what it is they think he’s accomplished?

    “the negative for me was that there were too many accomplishments.”

    OT. Is this some strange attempt to rally the religious right around Mitt or really just the race card run wild?

    Black Clergy and other concerned Christians ask Governor Mitt Romney to renounce his racist religion

    On Monday, March 12, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. Rev. O’Neal Dozier and a group of concerned Clergy and other Christians will hold a News/Press Conference to publicly ask Republican Presidential candidate, Mitt Romney to openly renounce his racist Mormon Religion.

    The purpose of this request is to foster and maintain good race relations here in America.

    • Jeffhas says:

      That is just the start of the Religious bigotry-sliming that Obama must pursue with Mitt.

      The Mormons’s in this country sit on a TON of money… And you can bet they will donate like gangbusters to help one of their own.

      Say what you will about Mitt’s Milquetoastness – but he is probably the only candidate likely to have as much money as Obama – and you know how Obama doesn’t like fair fights. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Mitt (who is just basically the Republican Obama) also doesn’t like fair fights, and plans on outspending Obama in this campaign (it seems to be his M.O. so far against Gingrich and Santorum).

      Here’s to hoping that Obama actually fears he may be outspent. Cheers!

    • WMCB says:

      This is the black clergy trying to take down Mitt on behalf of Obama by attacking his Mormonism. The Obama team can’t come out openly and attack his faith, as that’s perceived as bigoted. So they had the bright idea to have some “concerned Christians” draw fire to Mitt’s faith under the guise of combatting racism.

      It is true that the Mormon church was quite racist in the past. Not so much anymore. If past racism is now the standard for an organization, I guess they need to all get busy renouncing the Democratic Party, as they were the party of the Klan and Jim Crow in the past.

      • Lulu says:

        This will backfire. Some of the most cut-throat competitors I have ever known are Mormans. They are nice on the outside and very courteous and will turn right around and knock you out. They are cliquish because they believe they have been percecuted. If this is the plan the Mormans will donate money to Romney until it hurts. Then they will vet Obama like they do their ancestors. No one does research better than Mormans.

    • glennmcgahee says:

      Harry Reid. Are they asking him to do the same?

      • WMCB says:

        No. He’s one of those animals what are more equal than others. He might be a racist, but he’s a useful racist, and thus acquires a papal indulgence from the high priests of politics. “Correct” political thought imbues privileges – among them the right to be as sexist or racist or nasty or untruthful or wacko as one wishes, with impunity.

        It’s for the Greater Good, you understand. Don’t question it, or demand (quaint, useless, outdated, Aristotelean) logic, or you become the Enemy as well.

        Why do you hate Hope and Progress? Who is paying you? Who can we connect you to who is unsavory?

    The trailer states that Obama was completely blindsided by the state of the Country when he was elected. He was completely blindsided by the fact that the Republicans hate Democrats. He had no idea which problems to tackle first. Seems to me he was woefully unprepared for the office of the presidency. Funny, I knew all those things and I am nothing but a bitter, old, white woman who clings to her religion. Seems like Hillary Clinton was right when she said that he wasn’t ready.

    • votermom says:

      Completely blindsided and yet he begged and cheated for the job.

    • Erica says:

      And to think he ridiculed Hillary about the “ready on day one” ads.

      Poor 0, seems he’s not even ready for term two.

      I will never, ever vote for 0. Don’t know what I will do yet, but it won’t be voting for that lying, cheating, incompetent hypocrite.

  9. OMG, now we have AweBots!

    I have a visceral reaction to people like Guggenheim. I have little doubt that he means what he says. I have little doubt that many Obots are very convinced that their vision of “improving mankind” under the glorious Obama is a good thing. Is something that, while we rubes don’t see it clearly like they do, we will be grateful for in the end, and so much better off for.

    The visceral reaction I have to this is no different than the visceral reaction I have to the Rick Santorums of the world. Who no doubt sincerely and deeply believe that their vision of a better society to be imposed upon us all is for our own good, and would make us all so much happier.

    I’m an unabashed individualist, who believes deeply in individual liberty, even if the cost of that liberty is giving up the pipe dream of a perfectly administrated, seamless society that always functions for the “greater good”. I’m all in favor of working for the greater good – until it begins seriously conflicting with individual liberty. Then I come down on the side of individual liberty, every time. Lady Liberty is messy and fault-laden and often unpredictable, but I love that glorious bitch with all my heart.

    Hive minds and collectivism creep me the fuck out. It creeps me out whether I disagree or even agree with their stated goals. Makes no difference. Once the siren song of “we know what’s best for all of you, you don’t know what’s best for yourself” starts up, I run like hell, no matter WHO is doing the singing.

    Interesting coincidence… the Obama praise piece ‘documentary'(?) coming out at the same time as the Sarah Palin hit piece.

    Tom Hanks is involved in both. It is Tom’s voiceover we hear in the Obama propaganda piece and he is a producer for ‘Game Change’.

    The last page of section A of today’s Washington Post is a full page add for HBO’s showing of Game Change. Isn’t Maher’s show on HBO? Ya think HBO is in the tank for Oblather?

    Maybe the Mormons could pull back the curtain and vet Hollywood’s and Scientology’s relationship. (Thanks Lulu, I about split a gut over your insightful comment… “Then they will vet Obama like they do their ancestors. No one does research better than Mormans.”)

    Bad Karma: Our Fisker Karma plug-in hybrid breaks down

    Our Fisker Karma cost us $107,850. It is super sleek, high-tech—and now it’s broken.

    We have owned our car for just a few days; it has less than 200 miles on its odometer. While doing speedometer calibration runs on our test track (a procedure we do for every test car before putting it in service by driving the car at a constant 65 mph between two measured points), the dashboard flashed a message and sounded a “bing“ showing a major fault. Our technician got the car off the track and put it into Park to go through the owner’s manual to interpret the warning. At that point, the transmission went into Neutral and wouldn’t engage any gear through its electronic shifter except Park and Neutral.

    We let the car sit for about an hour and restarted it. We could now engage Drive and the same error message disappeared. After moving it only a few feet the error message reappeared and when we tried to engage Reverse the transmission went straight to Park and again no motion gear could be engaged. After calling the dealer, which is about 100 miles away, they promptly sent a flatbed tow truck to haul away the disabled Fisker.

    We buy about 80 cars a year and this is the first time in memory that we have had a car that is undriveable before it has finished our check-in process.

    Kind of a metaphor for Obama.

    Don’t forget SONY is releasing a movie in …October…of course, presumably on how Barack single-handedly brought down Osama Bin Laden using raw brute strength, a string and a kitchen knife, and still made it back in time for 9 holes.

    I did a quick lurker survey of lefty blogs who were *not* obots in 2008. Looks like most of them are talking themselves into voting for B0 in Nov.

    “But I’m really quite in awe of him as a leader. And the choices he’s made.”

    Me too! My favorites so far are the 11% unemployment in my area, the five dollar gas, and the 700 dollar fine I’m going to face for being uninsured.

    I’m also gobsmacked by his awesome decision to detain and even execute US citizens without a trial. And I’m really impressed with his demotion of contraception from a non negotiable right to a subject of political debate.

      Don’t forget his getting rid of habeas corpus while the Left acts like he is handing out hand jobs & chocolate bars (stolen from John Smart).
