    No, it didn't.

    2016: Obama's America was released on Aug. 24, 2012.

    On Aug. 21, 2012, Obama's approval rating (as per Rasmussen) was 49%. On Aug. 27, it was 50%. It would hover between 48-50 throughout the month of September.

    Daily Presidential Tracking Poll - Rasmussen Reports™

    His approval as per Gallup was 47% the week before the "documentary" was released; it remained within a point either way through September.

    His RCP poll average (the average of all the polls) had him around 48% at the time of the release, and between 47 and 49 percent for the entire month of September (except for a brief flirtation with 50%).

    Any effect on Obama's polling caused by that "documentary" was statistically insignificant to the point of nonexistent. Or, in other words, you simply made that up.

    >" Dinesh D'Souza's indictment on charges of illegal campaign donations seemed to confirm, for some conservative activists, what they've believed all along: That the "ongoing persecution of Republicans and Conservatives mirrors the attacks by the fascists of Europe on their opponents in the 1930s," as Pamela Geller wrote in a blog post on Thursday night, framing D'Souza's indictment as one of many "attacks" against conservative groups in the U.S. Although D'Souza, a Christian conservative author, has fallen a bit out of favor with the mainstream conservative moment in recent years, he's still a beloved Obama critic in some circles. Here was Drudge's quick-fire response to the indictment:

    And a later, follow-up observation:

    Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, of course, was charged earlier this week in a long-running investigation into whether his acceptance of expensive gifts and loans from a wealthy donor broke any laws. Another conservative blogger, who writes under the name Ace of Spades, gave a list of other "coincidences:"

    Coincidence: Hollywood's only conservative group is getting close IRS nonprofit scrutiny Another Coincidence: James O'Keefe Group Being Audited by NY. Again. Yet Another Coincidence: Dinesh D'Souza Indicted For Election Fraud Still Another Coincidence: IRS Proposes New 501(c)(4) Rules That Just Happen to Cover Most Tea Party Groups Judge Strikes Down Wisconsin's 'John Doe' Subpoenas "If you want to see what American fascism would look like," Ace adds, "this is it." And this is a line of thinking that D'Souza himself is promoting.

    Right as the Department of Justice released the indictment against D'Souza, he tweeted, "IRS targets Hollywood Conservatives — wasn't this supposed to stop?" He's referring to the IRS's scrutiny of "Friends of Abe," a conservative group of Hollywood types.

    When The New York Times picked up on the investigation earlier this week, some, including Herman Cain, accused the IRS of trying to silence conservative Hollywood celebrities in the lead-up to the 2012 presidential elections. D'Souza's only other tweet so far on his indictment linked to a Hollywood Reporter interview with Gerald Molen, a co-producer for his recent film, 2016: Obama's America. Molen also believes that the charges are the result of political targeting:..."<

    Kind of like liberals always claiming Bush did it whenever anyone is critical of Obama, right?

    The notion that liberals "always blame Bush" is wildly overstated to the point of absurdity.

    Really, you're going to have to prove that. I don't think you've been around here long enough.

    I'm not really sure how I would even go about "proving" a statement of perception.

    There's corrupt people in both parties. The republicans are going to point out the democrats and vice versa.
