Obama movie documents term

by John Anderson

Aztecs for Obama is screening “The Road We’ve Traveled,” a quasi-documentarian promotional video about the presidency of Barack Obama at 6 p.m. today in Nasatir Hall Room 100.

In the video, Tom Hanks narrates viewers through Obama’s first term, relying on interviews with prominent politicians and insiders into Obama’s daily affairs. The film focuses on the administration’s response to the economy, the health care battle and catching Osama Bin Laden.

The 17-minute film’s proximity to election season leaves no doubt regarding the motivations behind “The Road We’ve Traveled.” Predictably, many Republicans have criticized the film.

“Americans feel Obama’s accomplishments each and every day after President Obama led our country to higher unemployment, record debt and higher gas prices,” Republican spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski said in a statement made to USA Today.

This is a free event. Aztecs for Obama will be giving away free photographs to the first 50 audience members to arrive.
