“2016: Obama’s America,” opened 7 weeks ago and the White House   finally speaks out. The film is a deliberate distortion” of his “record and world view.”

The film is in theaters across the country and President Obama finally respond through an entry at his campaign’s website BarackObama.com.

The entry dated Sept. 5 claims Dinesh D’Souza  has a “long history of attempting to add a veneer of intellectual respectability to fringe theories, conspiratorial fear-mongering and flat-out falsehoods.”

Since opening July 13, “2016: Obama’s  America” is the second most popular political documentary in history, behind  “Fahrenheit 9/11. The film has already earned $26 million domestically.

According to BarackObama.com the movie’s inaccuracies are as  follows:

  • “D’Souza falsely claimed that President Obama said he didn’t believe in  American Exceptionalism …”
  • “D’Souza falsely asserted that President Obama funded $2 billion in  Brazilian oil exploration even though numerous fact checkers and reporters have  noted that President Obama had nothing to do with the loan.”
  • “D’Souza falsely charged that President Obama backed Scotland’s release of  the Lockerbie bomber only weeks after the Obama administration had put out a  statement opposing Scotland’s decision …”
  • “D’Souza even claimed that President Obama passed the bank bailouts when the  facts clearly show that it was President Bush who signed the Troubled Asset  Relief Program into law in October 2008.”

The film, which is dubbed, “the movie the White House doesn’t want  you to see..”

The website entry also bashes the Tea Party…President Obama’s harshest critic.

“It should say enough about D’Souza’s credibility that a movie catering to  the Tea Party attacks someone for allegedly ‘anti-colonial’ views,” the entry  reads. “His attempts to hide his lies behind pseudo-scholarly presentation and  glossy production values cannot withstand basic scrutiny. The facts show that  2016: Obama’s America is nothing more than an insidious attempt to dishonestly  smear the President by giving intellectual cover to the worst in subterranean  conspiracy theories and false, partisan attacks.”
