Hannity, Daily Caller: Bombshell Obama Race Tape - The two faces of Barack
The American Spectator ^ | October 3, 2012 | Jeffrey Lord

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.

I’ve posted eleswhere, and I still maintain that this “bombshell” tape is much ado about little.

Praising Rev Wright-nothing new
Race-baiting-ditto
Black cadence-maybe new but not surprising

It’s hardly a “barely recognizable Obama” that the Daily Caller is calling it.

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)

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.

Obama versus Jesus: Black Christians Must Decide ".....A year or so ago, I hosted the first Black Conservative Press Conference at the National Press Club in D.C. Several prominent black conservatives from numerous black conservative groups/organizations spoke. My brother brought my 84-year-old black dad from Baltimore. That evening, Dad said, "Everything I heard today is true. But, because of racism I suffered in my youth, I can not turn against Obama."

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. ...................."

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.

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.

The obama-phone lady won't care, the libs will call us racists, the msm will ignore it and/or denigrate lil' Tucker and call him a c*cks**ker, and he will, and Sean will pant and rant and rave and all 2 million of Sean's viewers, none of whom were going to vote for obama, will still not vote for obama.

Obama is a racist, a communist, a mooselimb, and a PRICK.

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.

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.

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?

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 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...

Excellent point.

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.

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.

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.

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.
