Skip to comments.Hannity, Daily Caller: Bombshell Obama Race Tape - The two faces of Barack
Posted on 10/03/2012 4:39:40 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
The presidential race exploded last night on Sean Hannity's television show.
The explosion came with the revelation by Tucker Carlson's The Daily Caller of a stunning 2007, exclusively obtained unedited video tape of then-Senator Barack Obama making blatantly racial appeals to an audience of black ministers. And doing it in a southern accent that by now all of America knows the man who was famously raised in Hawaii and Indonesia and migrated to California, Massachusetts, and Chicago -- simply doesn't have.
The audience at Virginia's historically black Hampton University included Obama's own pastor, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Whom Obama glowingly praised during the talk -- and later famously disowned. In the recent bestseller The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House by former New York Times journalist Edward Klein, the Reverend Wright, in a lengthy taped interview, said Obama considered Wright's "problem" to be one of having "to tell the truth." Essentially accusing his famous ex-parishioner of being a habitual liar.
The difference between the Obama delivering this speech and the Obama of presidential teleprompter fame will do nothing to change that impression.
The speech was filled with racially incendiary language reminiscent of rapper Kanye West's infamous televised charge that when it came to helping the stricken New Orleans, "George Bush doesn't care about black people."

Sorry. I watched Hannity last night and saw what he had. Nothing will come of this. This is no worse than any other atrocity committed by this turd. There’s nothing this guy can do that will change the minds of blacks (some maybe because of the gay issue) and welfare recipients.
And why is this tape from 2007 coming out now and not during his first run>??????
This is all about NOTHING ,,, this is TYPICAL everyday stuff from the panderer-in-chief . He panders to who ever he is addressing ,,, I’m very disappointed in Tucker , Hannity and Drudge this is last years birdnest at best .
I’ve posted eleswhere, and I still maintain that this “bombshell” tape is much ado about little.
Praising Rev Wright-nothing new
Black cadence-maybe new but not surprising
It’s hardly a “barely recognizable Obama” that the Daily Caller is calling it.
Also, about 50% of the people in the U.S. just simply don’t care.
The final days will all be about painting the real picture and if this is a stroke that helps us ALL remember and understand what a loser we have elected as President then so be it... roll the tape!
I agree that Hannity, Carlson and Drudge have lost their mind on this, and quite frankly it makes conservatives look a little foolish.
We now have a four year record of disaster and we’re going to focus on a 2007 speech in which a politician panders (imagine that-a politician pandering- hardly worthy of the Drudge siren)
“Sorry. I watched Hannity last night and saw what he had. Nothing will come of this. This is no worse than any other atrocity committed by this turd”
Well if people like you just sit on it and “yawn”, then nothing will.
And we complain about the press covering for Obama? We have a little crew here on FR that seems to have learned well from them.
My God. Can you people get any more negative? This is a bombshell. It shows Obama as a trace-baiting, America-hating, fraud. We all know he is. It’s not a revelation to us. But, nothing works better that seeing him do it in the flesh. Seeing is believing for a lot of people. This video will do considerable damage among independents.
At that time, I respectfully gave my hero, my preacher dad, a pass. Some may criticize me, saying, Lloyd, either you stand for conservatism or you do not. While you may have a valid point, it is in my DNA to respect my parents. How do you respectfully tell your usually character-driven parent that his decision to support Obama, no matter what, is rooted in racism and a refusal to forgive?
But now that Obama has been exposed as the most anti-Christian president in U.S. history, senior black Christians must no longer be given a pass for supporting this man. ...................."
Read comments on ABC’s article about it. Same old thing. His believers defending him and the rest saying what a POS he is. No one’s mind has been changed from what I can tell.
,,,,,, if you don’t know who this butthead is by now you don’t need a flimsey video to help you ,,, you need a stiff drink ,,,,,
I have to respectfully disagree with all who have weighed in on this and declared it will go nowhere. This will not be found reported by the MSM but it will make the rounds on all political forums and of course, FOX news. This will move the Independents off the fence and against Obama. It may also potentially sway some Latinos as it’s clear what he’s doing here; especially when it’s put side by side with his non, half-assed Ebonics speaking, self.
“I agree that Hannity, Carlson and Drudge have lost their mind on this, and quite frankly it makes conservatives look a little foolish.”
Meanwhile Mother Jones releases a Romney tape and the left doesnt sit around pondering if it is “worth” their time, they run with it. All the while FR posters sit and cry about the media attacks.
Well if people like you just sit on it and yawn, then nothing will.”
...I make calls, I donate money, I distribute yard signs and I’m in a significant swing state so go blow it out your barracks bag.
Obama is a racist, a communist, a mooselimb, and a PRICK.
It's Obama's blatant pandering, his condescending and outright lying (all done with such ease and determination to divide).
They are cowards and wimps, unless they are lefty plants trying to suppress the use of this tape.
And these are the same people that call the GOP the same for not “getting tough”!
Well if they want to show how “street tough” they want the GOP to be, then show them how it’s done.
Anyone who didn’t figure out that Obama was a racist before this Hannity show is an idiot.
Those voting for Obama simply do not care.
The blacks are as racist as he is and the whites are suffering from some sort of self-loathing.The Die Hard Democrats would vote for a pile of horse droppings if it had a D behind it’s name.
When you give out free phones , free citizenship’s, none of this matters. Obama is the best....why he’s our first black President, how cool is that?
More than half the American people voted for Obama last time.
Know your audience.
Two good shots from Powerline:
Obama slandered America as racist using dishonest claims about the response to Hurricane Katrina
Obamas shout-out to Rev. Jeremiah Wright
I don't think these new revelations are game changers, but I'm not willing to go so far as to say that it makes conservatives look foolish.
It may change some minds. It also prepares the ground if there is still more to come (like a personal witness willing to go on FOX, or an Obama insider who has a conscience attack and corroborates some or all of it from the inside).
There are 33 days left between now and election day. A lot can happen in a month.
“No ones mind has been changed from what I can tell.”
You are exactly right.
Well then stick to that and dont get in the way of the people that will do some dirty work on your behalf.
There are plenty of people on the left that do the same stuff you are and you dont hear them moaning about the tapes they dig up and distribute, do you?
The most shocking part.....when obama mentioned 9/11 people cheered and applauded.
Somewhere along the line Christians have lost the fear of the Lord. When God says, "For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you." (Mathhew 6:15) He means it. That's how it will be.
Sadly there will be a rude awakening on Judgment Day. Church-going 'Christians', seeped with unforgiving hearts may very well hear the Lord God Almighty say, "Depart, I do not know you."
Forgiveness is a choice, not a feeling. When people truly forgive, they are set free from bitter roots and malice towards others.
I do know my audience
When you combine the idiots with those who are part of the corrupt Obama regime you can see why Obama gets re-elected.
Everyone knows this is who this man is.
It’s just that the left lie and deny that this is who he is.
What has changed is that we can call them the liars that they are.
I think the biggest story out of this video is the “pulling back the curtain” on the MSM. All the pre-release tweets from so-called journalists were “this event was open to the media - this has already been released and we reported on it”. BUT the fact is the MSM completely glossed over it - even the ones that were actually in attendance! Now they are on the record as “reporting” on it or even attending it, while avoiding any mention of the race-baiting, race card playing comments. It may not make any voters think twice about Obama directly but it may trigger some to think “what else have the media covered up for him?”. That is the biggest news from this video. But just my 2 cents...
I only saw the short version, and didn’t think there was much to it.
Listen to his accent and watch his mannerisms on the tape.
Black folks have a name for black people who perform the “step n’ fetchit” routine.
1. The Lapdog Media is too compliant to question Obama’s racebaiting.
2. The State Media is so corrupt and complicit to ever report the truth. They are the coaches and cheerleaders for U.S. destruction.
3. Journalists in the MSM are just too damn stupid to notice.
...............and a latent homosexual!
It's like nails on a chalkboard listening to his phony "I'm a God loving son from the south" delivery.
Exactly. Millions and Millions just looking for their "piece of the action".
Let’s get back to reality. There isn’r a single person in this country who votes who is going to ‘change’ their mind. Every single voter is partisan. This media generated belief that somehow there is a percentage of voters who are undecided or independent is ridiculous. No debate, no video will change anyone’s mind. It is all deception.
Yawn..... there is nothing new on that tape.
Secondly, who writes this dribble?
“Whom Obama glowingly praised during the talk — and later famously disowned.” That is not even a sentence.
Most non-partisan voters don't even start paying attention until about 2 weeks before an election.
Yes. Compare the media's treatment of this video with Romney's 47% video discussing campaign strategy. This is Obama's 47% video, and he doesn't come off as Mr. Nice Guy.
We are all on the same team.
I'm in Ohio doing what I can.
You're absolutely right. We (the nation as a whole) have become so inured to Obama excesses that nothing short of a video of the murder and dismemberment of a child (please excuse the image) would move a significant number of voters away from the Obamanation.
It's not their fault that the the public has become inured to Obama's excesses.
Of course, to that audience 9/11 simply meant "The chickens have come home to roost!"
Doesn't matter. If those are the only ones who vote for him, then he loses. The real target is the bunch of middle-class semi-libs who voted for him in 2008 out of idealism.
You almost sound as if you know something the rest of us don't?
