‘The Road We’ve Traveled,’ the much-anticipated documentary that takes an inside look at Obama’s presidency, is now on YouTube. Narrated by Tom Hanks and featuring interviews with key political leaders from Bill Clinton to Rahm Emanuel, Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and more, the 17-minute film reviews Obama’s first term, all the crises he had to deal with and how he dealt with them.
Tom Hanks narrates, “Not since the days of Franklin Roosevelt had so much fallen on the shoulders of one President,” as we are taken through the economic crisis, the auto industry bailout, healthcare reform, the end of the war in Iraq, the death of Osama Bin Laden and more.
I love Michael Brendan Dougherty’s synopsis on Business Insider:
Obama was handed the worst economy ever in the history of humanity. It was basically the Black Death of money and prosperity. And even though that totally wasn’t fair, Obama and his team manned up and saved the economy from collapsing on itself like a dying star.
Check out the film below, which Dougherty reports cost around $345,000 to produce, and let us know what you think.
