The '07 Obama Video
National Review Online, by Stanley Kurtz

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/3/2012 5:36:59 AM

So here’s Obama proudly advertising his relationship with Reverend Wright, and even imitating Wright’s divisive rhetoric on Katrina. Is anyone surprised? Essentially, every excuse Obama used to explain away his relationship with Reverend Wright during campaign 2008 was a lie. But we already knew that. We also see here that Obama doesn’t want to build more highways out in the suburbs. That’s news to most, and there’s a lot more going on in that line than racial code. Obama’s hostility to suburbs stands behind some of his most transformative, yet least well-known, policy initiatives. To this very left-leaning president,

FTA: To review, this tape simply confirms what those who’ve been paying attention should already know...

Old news. That's how this is being played in the MSM: Old news. With a 'so-what?' chaser.

One of Obama's more lofty goals, should he be re-elected, is to basically eliminate the 'suburbs' so that middle class tax dollars can be turned over to the city governments. He is going to turn this country on its head and finish destroying it. The demonstrations and protests will be pointless. It will be far too late and the Republicans have already shown us that they will do nothing to stop him. No one will dare admit they voted for him...

And everytime I see a 60ish white woman driving around the suburbs with an Obama 2012 sticker - I just shake my head. Sooo clueless.

I wouldn't be surprised if Obama friendly people released the tape in order to divert attention from the very damaging info of Fast'n'Furious.

This video would have stopped Obama's campaign at the gate back in 2008. But now it's too late. The Media has sold out America and will blow it off. It only confirms what those of us with a brain already know. This dude has no business in the White House, and the Democrat Party and the Media should be ashamed for what they have done.

WOW #5. If what you said is true, Fast & Furious must be really terrible. In addition to FF&F I think it might be misdirection to take our attention away from Libya. "What did he know and when did he know it?"

At any rate, it surely makes Romney's 47% comments look pretty small.

It is 7:25 a.m. and I grow weary of the "What Romney must do tonight" articles being posted. I believe I shall ignore them——and remind myself not turn on TV until 90 p.m. tonight.

Tucker Carlson released this video while he was a host on MSNBC - this most likely is why the majority have not see it. MSM cherry picked less then 10 min.of the entire 40 min. video, leaving out the most revealing portions. That allows for the "old news". The full video is on the Daily Caller site.
Between Tucker, Hannity and Drudge it is now getting some exposure. Thanks guys!

But how many voters are paying attention?

The question should also be - how many voters care? I still encounter those who are racked with white guilt even after voting for the ( sort of ) black guy and suffering at the hands of his destructive policies.

The dirty little (not-so-well-kept) secret is that a majority of those voting for Obama agree with his premise in this speech. The media certainly does--that's why this speech will gain no attention from ABC, NBC, CBS, et al. They know Obama's an unrepentant Redistributionist-Marxist-Socialist-Narcissist-Statist. They also know that if the full truth of that fact were to seep out into the public arena, Obama would be toast. So they have to lie and pretend he's like you and me. It's the world they live in--you and I, we can talk about our conservative beliefs honestly (that is, unless we work in academia, the media, or Hollywood). We don't have to fear that what we say is abhorrent (except to those who support those Leftist principles above). The Left? They have to live in the shadows and fake their sincerity about America. Over time, that's got to do some damage to their psyches.

I think Drudge and Tucker did this to punk the media, not Obama. If so, well played. Look at how the journOlisters like Mark Halperin and everybody at Politico fell right into lockstep with the Obama campaign, proclaiming it 'old news', nothing to see here.

# 3, I got a delightful bonus yesterday. Not only was the 60ish woman driving a car with an Obama sticker, she also had a sticker saying "Republicans are evil" don't know which made me madder, the idiot stickers or the fact she was doing 35 in a 65 zone.

Here is my problem with Tucker: Why not go to all the alphabets, show them the video, and THEN prove that they are in the tank when they ALL refuse to air it? By going on Fox, he's just preaching to the choir. If he had done his legwork, and not been so lazy, he could expose the Legacy Media and at the same time, expose the racist in the White House.

Dittos to #11. I watched the program last night and my thought was "yawn." It did not reveal a side of 0bama that we didn't already know about; it isn't the first video to reveal who he really is. I guarantee you that the other side isn't up in arms about it. In fact, they're laughing at those of us who think this is some kind of bombshell. This won't change anyone's mind against 0bama.

Durbin was actually shocked and spoke to a local Springfield, Il reporter when Obama sent his "good friend" Jeremiah Wright to the basement of the Old State Capitol building when announcing he was running for pResident. What do Illinois democrats know now, because Durbin just announced the Feds just bought off Illinois democrats by buying a prison in Illinois?

The Obama on the video is the "ghetto" Obama, which whites seem to think is cool - why else are people like JZ and other rappers popular? I think it was the "real" Obama, and the Obama we see on the news with his refined voice is the phony Obama. His "refined" voice is why people seem to think Obama is intelligent.

It worked just the opposite for Bush43. Dubya spoke without putting on aires - it was more down-home Texan; thus, it was supposed he was a dim bulb. He was anything but a dim bulb - I just wish he would have stood up for himself. That may be the only dumb thing he did in his eight years.

Cool video. Loved Obama's attempt at an "Amos 'n' Andy" accent -- almost as authentic-sounding as the one Hillary used to use in black churches. His message, insofar as its content could be discerned, not so much. Regurgitated W.E. Dubois, with dollops of Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakhan, Angela Davis and most likely what's his name, his Commie mentor in Hawaii.

What is more interesting his how Tucker Carlson came by this video, which was carefully suppressed during the 2008 campaign. It is said a few snippets of it were shown briefly somewhere, before it was given cement booties and deep-sixed.

Let's not be quite so arithmetically challenged. Information like this video only has to effect about 5-6 percent of the voters to change the results. From what I've seen some of those well meaning voters who suburban voters took Obama at his pretty sounding words about a post racial America. are now quite hungry for evidence they were betrayed by the media about Obama's character and intentions. The fact that the damaging parts of this tape are only coming out now is just such evidence.

When Obama lays his rural Missisippuh on thick like that, I wonder if anyone in the crowd feels a level of embarrassment or insulted intelligence. Similarly, I wonder if any Harvard grads feel that way when he tries to sound hyper intelligent.

Another dead horse is flogged by the usual floggers. According to the polls, this election will likely be decided by the "social acceptance" generated by each campaign to bring the "moron vote" one way or the other...and that may be some guy next appearing in a Jay Leno "Walk About" not knowing who is on the penny, and knowing all about Penny Marshall.

All he did was continue to "VOTE PRESENT" !!!!

The REAL BHO, showcased here and hidden from us by the media will not be popular with moderate Dems and independents who may not have been paying close attention like we do. Instead of whining that it's not worth your time, why not share it with everybody you know? I want to know who, besides the AP, was in that audience and carefully omitted the REAL BHO, editting 40 minutes down to 10.

For those of us who knew this about obama, the story is the coverup by the media. They're out there saying that it's old news and admitting that they knew this but did not report it. I'm not sure the sheeple planning to vote for Nero will be able to get that, unless Biden slips up and tells them.

I believe this is how Obama actually speaks in private.
Hs improper use of English language and street Ebonics still slips into his public behavior.
Yo, yo, listen up, etc.
Obama's gushing over Rev Wright ( " where's he at ? " the Great Orator asked ) exposed his phony attempt to
distance himself from Wright.
If Romney had said that blacks will have to be taught how to dress
and how to show up on time for work
and other derogatory things,
the media would be en fuego.
Obama did not disguise his contempt and dislike of whites, especially those who live in the suburbs.
Which dove tails with his remarks in a radio interview
that suburban whites don't want to pay
for inner city black kids to go to school.
Of course, suburbanites don't live in the same tax districts
as the inner city ,
I wonder if Obama understands this ?
The bottom line is that his autobiography, his behavior ,
his unguarded interviews
and his sermons all reinforce that
he despises 72.4 % of the population.

#10 - regarding where did he get the accent? Recall Harry Reid saying before he ran in 2007 that he is a clean Negro with no dialect - unless he wants to turn it on? OB learned the AA dialect like he learned the other minimum things - just enough to get the next job on the rung to Preezey of the United Steezies.

Besides showing 0bama the race-baiter playing down to his perceived audience it also shows 0bama the liar who claimed he wasn't that close to Hate Rev. Wright, despite his books also showing the opposite. Where are the press whores on these truths revealed again? Hiding behind the manure piles they print.

Found an excerpt on The Daily Caller.

Amazing how lies just flow out of his mouth. Fact is, NOLA did get a Stafford waiver. Fact also is, that President Obama didn't waive the local funding requirement for Joplin, MO.

The only true thing I heard was his admiration for Rev. Wright.

TEN days before he made that hypocritical speech..HE, Barack Hussein Obama voted AGAINST the funding for the Stafford Act.
There he was shooting off his mouth, race baiting and being critical and HE and 13 other senators voted against funding the Stafford Act.

Here´s a lesson in online security: Passwords are important. They keep your information safe. Crucially, they also prevent other people from impersonating you. Unfortunately, one of The Switch´s readers learned that the hard way. On a story explaining how the Heartbleed bug could slow down the Internet, a commenter scoffed at the "Heartbleed thingamajig," arguing that the Internet´s handwringing over security was mostly overwrought: I couldn´t give a flying fig about the Heartbleed thingamajig.

But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

INDIANAPOLIS | A Portage airman was among the Hoosier troops stationed in Germany that Gov. Mike Pence met Monday on the first stop of his jobs mission to Indiana´s largest European trading partner. Lt. Benjamin DeLaCruz, a 2007 Portage High School graduate, helped show the Republican governor and first lady Karen Pence around the sprawling Ramstein Air Base and participated in a discussion with the governor about the role of U.S. forces in Europe. "On behalf of the men and women serving overseas, I would like to thank Gov. Pence for visiting Ramstein today," DeLaCruz said in a statement released by the

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

Chevron, Dole cases expose lawyer corruption

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers. These rulings are welcome

Not all of the Pulitzers were

NFL players have Most Valuable Player awards. Major League Baseball players strive for Cy Youngs and Gold Gloves. For journalists, it´s the Pulitzer. Every year, when Pulitzers are announced, most of them are awarded to big corporate media outlets with huge staffs and budgets devoted specifically to the contest. But not always. On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable. Philipps exposed the shameful treatment of members of the U.S. military, many of them wounded combat veterans, in the drawdown of American military forces. Too often,

Joker sob story is just sickening

Another sob story in the left-wing media about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev? Yesterday it was the turn of The New York Times, under the headline, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Isolation.” Needless to say, the ACLU is up in arms. Boo-hoo-hoo. And if he were in general population, rest assured the headline would have been, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Fear of his Life.” Needless to say, the ACLU would be up in arms. This one was perfectly timed — on the first anniversary of the Joker placing one of his kettle bombs in front of little Martin Richard, who had moments

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
