Breitbart‘s Tapes of Obama’s College Years to Be Released in a week
conservativebyte.com ^ | 3/2/2012 | Conservative Byte

Posted on 03/02/2012 9:43:37 AM PST by Signalman

“I have videos, this election we’re going to vet him,” new media mogul Andrew Breitbart proclaimed at this year’s CPAC event.

Breitbart was, of course, referring to clips that allegedly show President Barack Obama during his college days — videos that the media leader claimed would show “why racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008.”

These tapes, which have inspired conspiracy theories surrounding what led to Breitbart’s death on Thursday of natural causes at the age of 43, are now purportedly going to be released (Glenn Beck has strongly cautioned viewers against jumping to conclusions connecting the tapes to Breitbart’s death).

On Thursday evening, Steve Bannon, a writer and documentary filmmaker (“The Undefeated”), told FOX News‘ Sean Hannity that Breitbart’s company will release the mysterious Obama Harvard tapes within seven to 10 days.

I sure hope this is true, I sure hope that Btreitbart had a release mechanism that didn’t rely on himself solely.

If this is true sounds like he had planned to release them March 1st, but sounds like his associates may have decided yesterday in news of his passing to wait till the buzz around his untimely death to pass so it wouldn’t draw attention away from the Obama College video.

Could be Obama is done in by a Dead man.

“Making a note here, Huge Success....”

I sure hope so.

My only question is this the right time to show the tapes? I guess it may depend on what is on them. Anyways I would like to see the tapes shown when they will do the most damage to Obama.

I just wish the tapes would be released by someone other than Hannity. He tends to spend a few minutes on an important issue before wandering off on some other issue.

It better be devastating. He graduated from college 30 years ago so it better be the most immoral, sexual or something. Just showing Obama saying that he is a socialist or smoking a joint is not enough. We thought Sheriff Joe was going to knock our socks off yesterday and that was basically a snore....stuff we already knew.

Glenn Beck is qualified to tell people what to think? This from the man who spent hours documenting the Obama connections to a Soros conspiracy? Unbelievable!!!

Sometimes silence is golden.

I agree about Hannity, he needs a half hour to talk to Velma and toot his horn about what a fine generous non racist he is.
The article give the impression that Brietbart’s company will release the films, not Hannity.
I think they need to wait until the general election begins to release this stuff.

Breitbart had tapes of Obama with Ayres, when all along O has said they were `casual acquaintances`... And also what he is saying as well... I hope Hannity and AB's protege have very good security...

Do you really feel that anything will change? The dumb libs won’t believe any of it. The conservatives know how bad he is. The Congress will do nothing & the DOJ is useless. We live in a Banana Republic. Holder, Big Ears & his Czars do anything they want w/o impunity. Any media coverage from Sheriff Joe’s snorefest? The SC won’t take this on & pagan Kagan won’t bow out from the ObamaCare issue & Alito calls that snake, Ruth Ginsberg a friend & I don’t even want to go with the Wall Street corruption.

Give them a break. The guy just died. At least let them attend to his funeral first. Don't you think that his passing has had a huge effect on his staff? They are probably numb.

No, but it might sway some of the independents. I don’t know what’s on the tapes, so it’s kind of hard to say what effect, if any, they will have.

My husband finds Breitbart’s death suspicious. He thinks Obama had something to do with it.

I would find that along the category of conspiracy theories, but...it makes me wonder.

I was surprised other people haven’t said as much, but I haven’t been on the net for the past few days but a wee bit, working.

Some of this stuff must already be out there somewhere...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5m6YFBcixo

I hadn’t seen this before - although its produced, (not rough footage), it gives testimony that there is video from that era floating around.

I think the degree of suspicion surrounding ABs passing will hinge on how controversial the videos content is.

I am aware of all of that, but the fact that there is a week delay, and they would have come out, gives O’s people a chance to try to do something. I would say, “Relase in a week”, then release them Monday night as a surprise.

I bet these videos are mostly interviews with people who knew Obama in college and their recollections or video of documents (transcripts, application forms, etc.)

Obama started college in 1979 at Occidental College and graduated from Columbia University in 1983. Portable type consumer camcorders were not available until 1983 and were very expensive.

“Glenn Beck is qualified to tell people what to think?”

That’s NOT what the article said. He “cautioned viewers” not to jump to conclusions, which I think is very good advice for everyone.

You really don’t think there is a Soros/Obama connection?

You are right, “silence in golden”.

I listened to and respected Glenn Beck for his Soros/Obama exposes.

However, it was condescending to admonish people to ‘not jump to conclusions’. Better to caution everyone to ‘trust, but verify’.

Beck has not been in the vanguard of BO’s questionable eligibility - does he believe we should also be ‘cautious’ about the evidence of Barack’s British father and the forged BC????

I pretty much agree with you.

We’re way past voting on the merits of Baraq the candidate - yeah that might have had some effect in 2008.

The 2012 election is about philosophy - givers vs. takers.

A lot of “good” colleges had plenty of access to multimedia equipment in the late 70’s early 80’s because they would produce crap for the local PBS stations.

They would have been Betamax Tape or some other medium.

“which have inspired conspiracy theories surrounding what led to Breitbart’s death on Thursday of natural causes at the age of 43”

I’ve heard this the morning after he died and a few times since. How can one know it was of natural causes, if the autopsy hasn’t even been conducted yet? Just Sayin....

Seems they’re referred to as “Obama Harvard Tapes” - so we’re up to 88 and well into the VHS timeframe.

I’m having trouble figuring what Obama would’ve been doing in those days that anybody would’ve bothered to tape. Video equipment was huge and clunky back then and wasn’t just everywhere like it is now. I doubt if he was giving many big speeches, though maybe he spoke at some demonstrations? Lectures maybe? I doubt it would have been just casual home-movie type stuff.

Actually I thought Sheriff Joe's presser yesterday was very informative.

He informed us that his posse of volunteer investigators had proved that a crime had been committed, but with typical LEO caution, he was not prepared to indict anyone at this time.

No politics; no sensationalism - just the facts, ma'am.

Let's see where he goes from here.

Andrew’s style was “drip, drip, drip” ....death by a thousand cuts...

Release one tape. Watch the media frenzy.

Release tape two...watch the media frenzy.

Repeat until you’re out of tapes.
