Michael Savage: Breitbart tape 'fell flat'
World Net Daily ^

Posted on 03/11/2012 11:46:08 AM PDT by Politics4US

"The release of the highly anticipated videotapes of Barack Obama speaking at an affirmative-action rally when he was a student at Harvard Law School “fell flat,” revealing little about the president’s radical past that wasn’t already known, contends talk radio host Michael Savage.

“Was there a screaming Obama railing at the top of his lungs about the evils of white oppression? No,” Savage said on his “Savage Nation” show last night. “Was there a beret-wearing Obama with an AK-47? No.”

Savage said the video promised by Andrew Breitbart before he died last week “shows basically the same Obama you’d hear on the stump today.”

“The same monotonous cadence, the same haughty demeanor,” Savage said. “If this was supposed to be a blockbuster revelation, there wasn’t much block to bust.”

Savage ping. Tells it like it is...

The video was pretty weak tea, for certain.

Savage noted that his upcoming book, “Trickle Down Tyranny,” shows Obama “has a long history of his radicalism, a long history of associating with people like Derrick Bell, and there’s no point in reiterating it.”

LOLOLOLOL

No point in ANYONE ELSE reiterating it Mikey-baby?

Evidently he doesn’t know how Breibart works.

Savage has done some good work, such as defending Marines accused of “murder”... but he’s also often an egotistical a-hole who needs to be at the center of attention.

I don’t know if there’s more Obama, but they keep releasing more Derrick Bell.

He’s funny & brilliant, and politically unreliable:

He LITERALLY manned the gate at the Timothy O’Leary drug commune in upper New York —I have to allow that does sound made-up.

When he started out he had the conservative formula down pat, but from about 7 years ago politically he’s all over the map.

He has VERY creative and loyal family, and he’s lucky for that —Mike will NEVER know what true loyalty is.

When his wife Janet was producer you should have HEARD the way Mike would tongue-lash that poor woman —just go all Bill O’Reiley on her, pretty regularly.

Mike is funny, successful, and a manic-depressive scum-bag.

Basically he treats his staff the way UCB professors treated him.

Kind of disrespectful choice of words considering how Breitbart ended.

And don't think Andrew wouldn't have laughed at that, or may be laughing right now...

Savage is always there to support our military. ALWAYS! More so than any other talk show host.
I like Mike.

Boy, he’s quick to jump on this one. He’ll regret it. Breitbart always has more later. Real nice, Mike. Kick a man when he’s dead. Classy.

Weak tea?

What is more shocking when you actually do the research on Bell, et al, is that our media elite actually agree with them.

He tried his own version of stand-up; had an on-stage performance up in Marin County. He came out on stage driving a stretch boat Caddy, and it went on successfully like that for some time.

He started drinking, being funny. Then he gradually transmogrified into an angry drunk, and when a few of his jokes turned sour he began tongue-lashing his audience with comments about how, “you’re probably all wearing DEPENDS” (most of the audience was older).

It ended pretty badly.

Mike is well-paid, and that’s great —he can be insightful and brilliant.

But there is some unresolved betrayal and anger, there.

And that’s true even though that assessment is typically the type of passive-aggressive clap-trap usually aimed at conservatives by liberals.

With Mike, it’s NOT just a hollow charge slung by someone who simply wants him to shut-up and conform.

I can't stand Savage but he is right on here. I watched the video with my good friend, both of us being staunch conservatives with anticipation of some real meat and when it ended we looked at each other and went, “that's it???” That will get no traction at all. Breitbart should have concentrated on the Birth Certificate, Obozo born in Kenya, theme like sheriff Joe.

This video was only the beginning.

Andrew used the term videoS

Unless his crew loses their nerve expect a slow release of videos over the next months.

The Obama tape from Harvard is devastating and Sean Hannity risked his life to broadcast that tape on Fox News.

You must also understand that other networks and investigative reporters may have possibly, without question been intimidated to not show the Obama Harvard video.

What the tape shows is the mindset of people who Obama associated with and he continued the relationship after he became President. IMHO Obama saw nothing wrong with the thought process of these people. Newt will make hay of it but I am not sure about Rick or Mitt.

Unsurprisingly, Mike has had a long series of producers (full disclosure: I never was one). The daughter of KGO-ex Jim Eason also was one, and he gave her the same terrible treatment.

Hey, performance standards are GREAT —we need more of that in the USA. But Mike doesn’t just have those, no. He’s needlessly venomous, and he meets out EXACTLY the type of treatment to others that he decries towards him from others, like ex-bosses, professors, journalists and particularly his father.

The word, hypocrite is used more and more —now to a fault, I believe— but it fits Mike to a “T”: Mike is a big, fat hypocrite.

He should be more like his son, who is both a high-achiever and also genuinely NICE. Same with his wife. It’s juuuust Mike who is the jerk.

Americans need educating on the irrationality of leftist radicalism. They may take awhile to get the thing about Bell, that he hates white people because he enjoys doing it, not because it does any good or serves any purpose, or because he has any reason left for doing it. To radicals like Bell, hate, envy, disrupting the peace of society, and destroying this nation aren’t means to an end. It’s a life style. If he can get stupid white people to join him, so much the better.

It’s weak because this has already been surfaced about Zer0. Since it has nothing new, it has little chance of catching outside those of us who are already onboard with knowing Zer0’s agenda.

Sorry, but that’s reality.

Yes it was , no real surprises with the tape in and of itself. The real point I found in the tape was it underscored how much the MSM is carrying water for this asshat in the WH. Journalistic malpractice at its finest, especially when you contrast the treatment Herman Cain got.

Your question is a natural one, but if the cost of protecting my sources and methods is being accused of being a liar, then....I’m OK with that, yes.

I know that anyone who has really listened to Mike’s show KNOWS that my story isn’t fanciful.

Mike’s mean to the left, sure (many loved him for that —I certainly did) but he’s also mean to HIS OWN TEAM.

From Michelle Malkin:

--No no no! I reject this idea that we should just shrug our shoulders and buy the PBS/Buzzfeed line that there’s nothing new here. Stop it! This is news!

They didn’t want to talk about it then and they don’t want to talk about it now. Do you think it’s a coincidence of timing that Barack Obama has now hired people to put out some 17-minute documentary?

This is all about Alinskyite control of who tells the story. Well guess what Barack Obama and Jim Messina. It is not all your monopoly anymore and that’s why they are pushing back so hard. It is not ‘nothing’!

It is very crucial! --

“Evidently he doesn’t know how Briebart works.”

Please, would you be willing to elaborate? I’d be interested in a better understanding of what you mean here. You have given the conclusion, which I don’t dispute, but I’d like to hear your thinking.

The tape didn’t even rise to the level of “ho-hum”. Those who promoted it as the ultimate ‘gotcha’ polotical catch of the century should be ashamed of themselves. These ‘impotent’ stunts hurts the image of those on the right wanting so desperately to get the goods on the impostor in chief. This was embarrassing to say the least, IMHO.

There has to be more to that tape because Obama was clearly introducing Prof. Bell and it sure seemed like Bell was going to make some remarks following Obama’s hug. The second tape with Prof. Ogletree gloating over hiding this tape also seemed strange since what was shown shown was hardly damning of Obama and has been easily have been glossed over by the sycophant media. The tapes of Rev. Wright's GD America sermon were far more inflammatory. Breitbart was far smarter than this and I'm sure planned to release just part of the tape, let the media pooh-pooh it and then release the part with Bell unleashing his racists rants.

And old saying goes something like this:

“If you can’t kill the king, then you shouldn’t attempt it”.

To me, this means that if you attempt to bring down “the king” or in this case, Obama, and you fail, then this makes him stronger. IOW, when you go after the king, make ABSOLUTELY SURE you bring him down or else, he’ll bring you down.

Savage seemed a little sour grapes on this.

anyone vetting Obama and shinning a light on it should be applauded.

prior to the tapes the MSM was talking about birth control, and how our side doesn't respect women's rights. ....deflect, deflect

Shapiro and Pollack said it shows Obama embracing this man. With Bill Ayers and Rev. Wright, they didn’t have footage of Obama talking about them before Obama was running for president.

It goes like this:

BB makes a minor charge, which draws a major denial from the left —they offer some explanation.

THEN BB rolls out additional evidence that makes plain the great lie contained in the initial denial.

This then triggers much teeth-gnashing, yelling, and rambling back-tracking. Then a back-up explanation/denial is issued.

THEN BB rolls out something really huge (something that wasn’t disclosed at first) that drags the entire group of lefty apoligists down the bar counter, pushing all manner of peanuts, beer, and sending drinks crashing onto the barroom floor.

Then the victim is pummeled, kicked into silence and finally pee’d upon.

THAT is how is goes.

IN the micro, it was a dud. But when it is examined in the macro, it is huge. And I think that’s where Breitbart was going.

It builds on the narrative that Obama is nothing but an anti American radical - who was given a pass by the media.

His apologists look absolutely foolish now when they cry “guilt by association” - because the list is ever growing (Derrick Bell, Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, Father Pfleger, Van Jones, Frank Marshall Davis, Raila Odinga, Louis Farrakhan, Alice Palmer, etc)
