“2016: Obama’s America” is a film that has been recently gaining box-office success for its extensive look at what America would look like with four more under President Obama. Dinesh D’Souza, the President of King’s College and co-director of the film, attended Tuesday’s Bloggers Briefing at the Heritage Foundation to discuss the book that was the inspiration for the movie, Obama’s America: Unmaking the American Dream.
Rather than embracing the notion that Obama’s incompetence is getting in the way of any seeming good intentions, D’Souza suggested that the president is actually pleased with the destination that this country is headed towards.
“[Obama] intends the results that he’s getting,” D’Souza said. “He wants America to use less energy, that’s why he’s blocking it. He wants to reduce America’s influence on the Middle East, so he identifies our allies and he undermines them. He wants to see America’s nuclear superiority end, and so he takes a beat-ax and slashes our nuclear arsenal.”
According to D’Souza, Obama has been very successful in achieving his ultimate goal of “downsizing America” and hopes to complete that goal by 2016. The current administration represents a clear rejection of any form of American exceptionalism, and, if elected this November, the president will attempt to decrease America’s influence in the world, both economically and militarily, in order to level the global playing field.
The president may be running under the slogan “forward,” but his current policies have done nothing but stifle American growth and force the country down a steep path of decline. To avoid this road to ruin, D’Souza proposed that the spotlight should be put on Obama during this campaign so that he must be held accountable for his actions over the past four years.
