There’s No Place Like Utopia … Flashback to the 2008 presidential election when people were raving about the benefits and wonders of Obama.
Peggy Joseph was so enamored with Obama that she said this:
“I won’t have to worry about putting gas in my car. I won’t have to worry about paying my mortgage,” a worshipful Ms. Joseph said after attending a 2008 Obama rally.
Joel Gilbert was filming a new full-length documentary film called “There’s No Place Like Utopia,” which was released in 2014, so six years after she praised Obama he asked her if Obama did all that was promised.
“During that time, we needed a change, but change for the better, not for the worse,” an awakened Peggy Joseph told Gilbert.
“He had a very big voice, just like the Wizard of Oz,” Joseph said.
“The wizard was this little teeny-teeny tiny man, and I think it’s the same thing with Obama, the man behind the curtain,” Ms. Joseph said.
“What I learned is never trust the Wizard,” Joseph now says. “It’s within ourselves to have the determination, the courage, and the brains, to bring us to our destiny.”
Joel Gilbert is the director and writer of the political documentaries, Dreams from My Real Father (2012), Atomic Jihad: Ahmadinejad’s Coming War and Obama’s Politics of Defeat (2010) and Farewell Israel: Bush, Iran and the Revolt of Islam (2008). Dreams from My Real Father was featured at the Republican National Convention in Tampa (2012). Atomic Jihad was screened at the CPAC Conference in Washington D.C. and won the Hudson Institute Film Festival in 2010.
