The assault against the President of the United States ranged from that of "You lie" Wilson; "Go for the Kill" Billy Krystal; "Waterloo" DeMint; "Poison the well" Rick Santorum; to "Gangster Government" Michele Bachmann; "Stupid" Senator Charles Grassley; and "Stupid" former Governor John Sununu. Not to be left out, Donald Trump and his "Birther" nonsense; Arizona's "Black Protester with Guns" and his "Pastor Anderson Praying for the death of Barack Obama" are only some of the outlandish and disrespectful tirades unleashed against President Obama. Threats to the life of Mr. Obama and his family have not gone unnoticed. However, intellectually and tactically superior to his opponents, Mr. Obama allowed these leaders in government and civil life to unload the deepest sentiments they held against him as a man who is Executive President of the United States, Commander-In-Chief and leader of the Western Alliance. Disarming them strategically with his infectious smile and quick thinking he simply dismissed them as "good ole boys" being "good ole boys!" Though he came around to admit, "Politics is a contact sport" and welcomed "Republicans playing hard!"
However, OBAMA: MASTER AND COMMANDER delves beyond the politics of the "City on a Hill" to showcase its art, and architectural and Memorial magnificence. From the George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, World War I, World War II, Theodore Roosevelt, Korean War, Vietnam, the DC, and Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorials, to the stupendous artistic extravaganza of the Thomas Jefferson Building of the Library of Congress, as well as the Madison and Adams Buildings of that august Institutional repository, the Folger Shakespeare Library and architectural masterpiece of the Capital Building, the White House, Lafayette Park and images of Washington's beauty are all captured here easing the acerbic tone of DC's politics with the joy and beauty of the city's aesthetic wonderment.
