Friday night, Fox News' Sean Hannity hosted an exclusive one hour special on our latest film "The Hope and The Change." This documentary follows the surprising personal journeys of 40 Democrats and independents from across America who supported Obama in 2008.
Writer/Director Stephen K. Bannon, former Democrat pollster Pat Caddell, and I were interviewed by Hannity about the film he called the best documentary he has ever seen. During the one hour special, viewers saw exclusive clips from the film and heard several members of the 40 person cast go into greater detail about why they've given up on Obama.
During the course of the show, Hannity declared "The Hope and The Change" the "most powerful documentary I've ever seen in my life – no way anyone who's seen this film could vote for Obama." That is because the powerful voices in the film will resonate with many citizens across the country who are disillusioned with the Presidency of Barack Obama and it reinforces how his promises and policies have failed.
Our film "The Hope and The Change" is David Axelrod's worst nightmare, because it is about Obama’s own voters from 2008 who are now focusing solely on how he has performed these last few years – and they don’t like what they see. We feature real stories from real Obama voters – registered Democrats and independents – who drive home the extent of the decline of the country in the past four years and how far off the mark Obama’s promises have been. As Hannity said in a promotion for the special, "If everyone in America saw it, Barack Obama wouldn't get 15 percent of the vote."
That is why it is so important for us to get this film in front of as many people as possible. We will first screen "The Hope and The Change" during the RNC on Tuesday in Tampa – FREE tickets and more information is available at http://www.citizensunited.org/RNC – and will then bring it to the DNC in Charlotte, followed by the swing states of Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, where all 40 members of the cast are from. We hope to announce further distribution deals shortly. "The Hope and The Change" is also available now to order on DVD.
This persuasive documentary will start a conversation across America. Be sure to get your copy as well as ones for all the undecideds you know. "The Hope and The Change" is sure to be a powerful tool in your arsenal this fall.
