After Words: Dinesh D'Souza, "The Roots of Obama's Rage," hosted by Jonathan Alter

About the Program

Mr. D'Souza asserts that President Obama poses an existential threat the United States, because he's heavily influenced by his father's anti-colonialist ideology.  Using several biographies of the 44th president, Mr. D'Souza claims to have evidence of a presidential agenda that includes economic policies designed to make America poorer and attempting to make the country's status as a superpower a thing of the past.  He discusses his theory about the commander-in-chief's policy motivations with Newsweek's Jonathan Alter, author of "The Promise," which provided an inside look at President Obama's 2008 campaign.
