The maker of a new documentary on President Barack Obama is really “in awe” of his subject. So much so that he couldn’t find one single bad thing to say about Obama.

“The negative for me was there were too many accomplishments,” Oscar-winning filmmaker Davis Guggenheim told a clearly skeptical Piers Morgan on CNN. “I have 17 minutes to put them all in there.”

Guggenheim's Obama campaign film, “The Road We’ve Traveled,” is  narrated by Tom Hanks, and comes out next week. To see the video, click here.

In Thursday’s interview, Morgan repeatedly asked Guggenheim why his film was so overwhelmingly positive.

Guggenheim answered that he just couldn’t find anything negative to say. “I’m really quite in awe of him, as a leader, and the choices he’s made,” the filmmaker gushed.

"The only negative about Barack Obama is there are too many positives?" asked a disbelieving Morgan.

“That was the negative for me,” Guggenheim replied.

“Where do you find fault with him?” Morgan pressed.

“I don’t, frankly,” Guggenheim said.

Guggenheim declined to say what the film cost or who paid for it, referring such questions to the Obama campaign. He did say he took a pay cut for the project.

It’s not Guggenheim’s first time working with the Obama campaign. He made a short on the then-Illinois senator that was shown at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.

Guggenheim won an Oscar for his work with former Vice President Al Gore on the 2004 global warming film “An Inconvenient Truth.”
