Question of the Day
“I appreciate her encouragement that I’d go home to Texas and run for office. I would say this, though: I don’t think I’m a particularly good candidate, sort of a balding, fat guy. And second of all, I’d say if I did run for office and won, I’d serve out my term. I wouldn’t leave office midterm.”
And so replied Mr. Rove to Mrs. Palin, during his appearance on Fox News Sunday.
AMERICA, THE MOVIE
“To paraphrase George Bailey in ‘It’s a Wonderful Life,’ the question all people should ask from time to time is, ‘What would the world look like if America never was? And that’s a question I often ask myself,” said Dinesh D’Souza, on revealing in the final hours of CPAC that he had begun another film project. He hopes the new venture will rival “2016: Obama’s America,” his surprise blockbuster initially shown on a single commercial movie screen last year that became the second-highest-grossing political documentary of all time.
“President Obama looks at America as an oppressive force, both against its own citizens and abroad, while I and millions of others around the world have a different view: that America has been a great blessing to its own people and to the world. We intend to provide both serious answers and have some fun as we take Obama’s dreams for America to their logical conclusions.”
The film is simply titled “America,” and will be released in 2014.
“It’s at great moments of peril like this that we need to regroup and rediscover the first principles of what made America great,” Mr. D’Souza advises. See the trailer here: dineshdsouza.com.
