Standing against big government and for the people!
New York Times:
As Mitt Romney's campaign struggles and Barack Obama gains traction in the latest polls, Citizens United is lobbing a grenade into the mix. Its hour long film The Hope and the Change, which features 40 Obama voters who are disaffected with the president’s first term in office, is coming to television.
The film will air on six cable and six broadcast networks, beginning this week and carrying through Election Day. David Bossie, the group's president, says he hopes it will reach voters in tens of millions of homes.
"This is why I did 'Citizens United,' " Bossie told Politico. "This would have been a criminal act under McCain-Feingold before my court case."
The Romney campaign can use all the help it can get amid reports of internal disarray. Romney's top campaign strategist, Stuart Stevens, is taking heat for missteps around embassy protests and the killing of the U.S. ambassador to Libya, which came on the heels of a Republican convention most memorable for Clint Eastwood's empty-chair theatrics and no sign of a bounce in the polls.

From Citizens United About the Film:
Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign was a cathartic moment in American history that promised the electorate “Hope” and “Change.” Citizens United Productions’ latest film, The Hope and The Change, examines the journey of forty Americans - Democrats and Independents - who supported and voted for President Obama four years ago.
This 60 minute documentary follows the daily lives of hard-working Democrats and Independents through unscripted and unrehearsed interviews. Our diverse cast encompasses a broad cross-section of America’s racial and socio-economic spectrum and comes from seven swing states that experts say will decide the 2012 presidential election. Viewers will see how their nation's economy and society has changed over the past four years under the policies of President Obama.
The award-winning team of Producer David N. Bossie and Writer/Director Stephen K. Bannon traveled to Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia to search out these authentic American stories from citizens who have lost faith in their President. President Obama campaigned in 2008 on “Hope” and “Change” and what these stories from Americans show is that they are disappointed in the direction of the country. The voices of everyday Americans in this film will have a major impact on the debates that are currently raging across America.
