Is 2016: Obama's America based on a true story?

Democrats think it's trash, and so do many highly educated Republicans.like-
Conservative Daniel Larison, who writes for The American Conservative, wrote 'Dinesh D’Souza (writer and director of 2016) has authored what may possibly be the most ridiculous piece of Obama analysis yet written...Obama is a die-hard anticolonialist dedicated to his father’s anticolonialist legacy. That must be why he aspired to become President of the world’s remaining superpower and military hegemon–because he secretly loathes the exercise of Western power and wants to rein it in! It must be his deeply-held anticolonialist beliefs that have led him to escalate the U.S. role in Afghanistan, launch numerous drone strikes on Pakistan...this is simply stupid'
Conservative Andrew Ferguson wrote an article 'The Roots of Lunacy', for The Weekly Standard, in which he states "D’Souza always sees absence of evidence as evidence of something or other. ... There is, indeed, a name for the beliefs that motivate President Obama, but it’s not anticolonialism; it’s not even socialism. It’s liberalism!"... D’Souza makes many errors of this sort, citing facts that aren’t facts in support of an otherwise unsupported conclusion. He says that Obama, in his memoir Dreams from My Father, never mentions his father’s drunkenness. Obama mentions it often. Indeed, D’Souza misreads the entire memoir: Far from admiring his father and emulating him, Obama makes his disillusionment with his father one of the themes of his own life story. ...Nearly everything that Obama has done as president... would have been as eagerly pursued by President John Edwards or President John Kerry. And the points where they might differ—in the escalation of troops in Afghanistan, for example, or energetic education reform, or the push for nuclear power—mark Obama as more moderate than either of them."

It does use some facts and then twists them beyond recognition. But then... all the best lies have a kernel of truth to them
