Okay, so I didn't see the first part of the movie on Sunday night, but I was okay with missing the Clinton years (I already lived through them once, and once is MORE than enough!). But I did watch during the Bush years last night and I don't see what all the fuss was about. To me, the right should have been more bothered by this movie than the Democrats. Like anything else on ABC, I thought the always present liberal bias was definitely there.
I didn't like the fact that this movie portrayed Dick Cheney as a wrinkly old angry man. Okay, we know the guy's old but come on! I was also bothered by the little poke the movie made at Bush's war on terrorist financing. I think stopping terrorist financing is extremely important and has probably been a huge part of the reason we haven't been attacked again since 9/11. But then, I already agreed with him and didn't need convincing...so I'm sure most liberals who watched missed the boat on that subject as usual.
Overall, I thought the movie pretty much sucked. I almost fell asleep several times. I will say I think the movie definitely made the case for President Bush's so-called 'eavesdropping programs' as well as the need to secure our border. I just hope that the people who watched can see the connection between 9/11 and illegal immigration. If immigration laws were enforced, perhaps the World Trade Center would still be standing and thousands of Americans would still be alive.
I'm no movie critic, but I give both ABC and their 9/11 movie a big "L" for "LOSER"!
