Last night, Obama campaign released their 2012 documentary, helmed by “Inconvenient Truth” director Davis Guggenheim (so you know it’s gotta be factual).

The actual title of the video is “The Road We’ve Traveled,” but the implied title is “How Obama Saved the Country from Years of Bush.”

The Tom Hanks narration might leave you feeling like you’ve watched an Apollo 13 documentary… provided the film ended before the successful re-entry and splashdown that this video desperately wants you to assume went well:

Shorter version: “I spent a sh*tload of your money, killed Bin Laden, spent another sh*tload of your money, passed a health care law that’s going to cost at least twice what we told you, and… did I mention I killed Bin Laden?”

Loved the flashback scenes to 2008 featuring the teary-eyed mounties in the Hope & Change Unicorn Cavalry along with the message, “Remember what it felt to feel like this? Wouldn’t you like to feel this way again? Force yourself!

Oddly enough, the film didn’t feature any follow-up interviews with Peggy to see how that free gas and mortgage is working out for her.

Among the true faithful however, The One hasn’t lost the magic.

    Thank goodness Obama came along to save us from the years of Bush. God help us if the country should ever be in that good of a shape again.

    At seventeen minutes long, the only people who ever watch this will be Obama partisans trying to convince themselves that they were right back in '08. The rest of us will ignore it.

    Yeah, we're 'stoked'. I'll watch it some other time, maybe.

    Sounds like they may have been hoping to counter the poll showing that 80% believe that they are worse off now than they were 4 years ago.
