Following is the documentary Crawford, provided free (with advertisements) by Hulu. Crawford documents residents of Crawford, Texas, in their reaction to President George W. Bush setting up a vacation home right next to them. The documentary spans seven years, from the 2000 election to 2007. One interesting aspect is the change in views toward the president. While Crawford residents initially welcome Bush in the days when he was just a Texas governor aspiring to be president, their opinion dissipates as they experience the intense protests led by Cindy Sheehan. Towards the end of the film, there is a feeling among some residents that Bush only used their town to build an image for himself.
