Hell yeah, how can you not? I guess Moore dissects the close the personal and business relations of the Bush family with the Suadia Royal family and Prince Bandar.

He also goes into the business deals with the bin Laden family prior to 9/11. I only know a little, but I guess both families were invested in the same company called the Carlyle Corporation.

The right is gonna try to hang Moore during the time surrounding the movie. I saw today Bill O'Reilly blast Moore on some quote Moore gave.

Too bad we can't make it required viewing before being permitted to vote in November. I am not a fan of Moore's, but I wouldn't miss this movie for anything! I am afraid Bush will ruin this country if reelected. And he will probably do it in the first two years of a new term.

Think of all the shit that has happened so far with the Bush Admins, then think of what would happen if he had 4 more years, and didnt have to worry about getting re-elected.

Moore can be over the top on some shit, but that dosent mean his overal general message is right on target. He blasts Dems as much as Repubs too.

You guys are right, Bush is a moron. So far he has only:

Responded to an attack on American soil that killed more people than Pearl Harbor. Realized that it will take us decades to fix terrorism - I mean we are only fighting a couple of generations of Islamists who have been brought up to hate everything Western.

Our actions in Iraq has gotten Khadafi to straighten out his act, Iranians to demand government reform, put Syria on notice, allowed Israel to go after murdering Hamas bastards and has allowed our military to fight terrorists in their "yard" as opposed to our police depts dealing with them here.

Additionally, he has appointed a man to head up the Defense Dept, who not only has more integrity in his little finger than the entire Clinton Admin, but has brought the US military into the 21rst century and won two wars in the process.

Bush also gave me more of my money back, it was nice to get a couple of thousand bucks back from Uncle Sam. I just built a deck with the extra cash - further stimulating the economy; is it any wonder that the country is adding about a quarter of a million jobs a month? The only bad things he has done is to send money into the black holes of bettering education and providing prescription drugs.

Moore is a complete idiot. His breakout documentary "Roger and Me" displayed a frightening lack of any macroeconomic understanding. Why doesnt he do a follow up movie on how GM re-tooled to become more competitive in the world markets. Had GM done what Moore wanted, GM would have been dead 10 years ago. "Bowling for Columbine" was so distorted, I actually laughed out loud throughout the movie. The only problem is, people were saying the same thing about that movie. "Everyone in the country should have to watch this movie before they leave high school, vote, etc. (Fill in the blank)." Just because it is on the screen doesnt make his drivel the truth.

I believe everyone should educate themselves before voting, but be careful what you take as the truth. Moore is so full o' shit it's pathetic. Vote for Bush or not- I don't care...hell, I don't know for sure yet if I'll vote for him, but I damn sure won't place my vote based on ANYTHING Michael Moore says; that would almost be as bad as basing your vote on what Rush Limbaugh says. They're both fucking idiots. In fact I think it would be cool to have a real 'celebrity steel cage death match' with these two fat bastard fart bags going at it.

I just saw Ebert and Roeper and they reviewed Farenheit 9/11. They both gave it two big thumbs up. They said that even though Moore is biased, some of his arguments are pretty hard to refute. They said that even though not every degree of his interpretation might not be true, you shouldnt throw out the entire conclusion.
 
I really wana see it... I haven't seen any of his other movies, even though they always get alot of hype...But when it comes to a Bush, I'm always willing to add to my mental archive of why I don't like a Bush, so I'm definantly going to be seeing it! :D

Peace
 
It should be good I enjoyed Bowling for Columbine alot. He is one cool dude that Moore.

Not sure. Check out the website, www.michaelmoore.com

Take a look at the trailor for Fahrenheit 9/11, it looks very well made and interesting. I saw some footage of GWB. It was after 9/11 and Bush was on vacation, he said to the news reporters "I call upon all nations, to do anything they can to stop these terrorists killers.......Now watch my drive."

Moore points out that Bush was on vacation longer than any other Prez (i think).
