Obama Hagiographer Davis Guggenheim Claims There's Nothing About Obama He Can Fault

I know this is a couple of days old. Stick with it for a sec. I have a point.

He cannot find a single fault with Barack Obama.

Davis Guggenheim: "Well, I mean the negative for me was, there were too many accomplishments. I had 17 minutes to put them all in there."

Piers Morgan: "Oh, come off it! You can't say that with a straight face. Come on."

Davis Guggenheim: "I'm looking at you right now with a straight face."

Piers Morgan: "The only negativity about Barack Obama is there are too many positives?"

Davis Guggenheim: "That was the negative -- excuse me, that was the negative for me."

Piers Morgan: "Oh."

...

Piers Morgan: "But where do you find fault in him, personally?"

Davis Guggenheim: "I -- you know, I don't. I don't, frankly."

Piers Morgan: "He's a perfect human being?"

Davis Guggenheim: "Well, no. but I'm really quite in awe of him, as a leader, and the choices he's made."

Piers Morgan: "I mean, I'm only asking because you are a well-known documentary maker, and this would be the first movie, I guess, you've made where it's all completely positive. And even you personally don't see any negative at all in the guy. Do you think you were the right guy to make this? I mean, are you dispassionate enough to make a Barack Obama video?"

Davis Guggenheim: "But, Piers, you haven't seen the movie. You've only seen the trailer."

Piers Morgan: "Well, I've asked you to list all the negatives and you said the only negative was you couldn't put enough positives in."

Davis Guggenheim: "Well, that's true. That's true."



Now, you keep hearing that Davis Guggenheim is a "famous" documentarian. I kept hearing that too, and nodding my head, even though I had no idea who the hell he was. But if people say he's famous, he's famous.

Well, he did do a very big documentary, one that I've seen. One, in fact, I've promoted on this blog a half dozen times.

He wrote, narrated, and "starred" in Waiting for Superman, the documentary that devastates the Teachers Unions and current system of government schools for dooming children to poor educations and poorer lives, and takes as its heroes the charter school and private school people trying to fight the corrupt system.

The president that this champion of charter schools says has not a single flaw canceled the low-cost DC Opportunity program, a program to place poor kids in charter and private schools, as a sop to the teachers union.

Thanks to @jimgeraghty for pointing that out.

So, does Davis Guggenheim denounce his name-making movie Waiting for Superman as fundamentally false?
