Video surfaces of Obama in 2007 suggesting racism slowed aid to post-Katrina New Orleans
FOX News ^ | 10/03/12 | FOX News.com

It's the Obama speech on race you probably haven't heard. In June 2007, then-Sen. Barack Obama told a mostly black audience of ministers that the country's leaders "don't care about" New Orleans residents, suggesting the city was neglected in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina because of institutional racism, according to an unedited video reported on by The Daily Caller. In the address, delivered during the upswing of the Democratic presidential primary season, candidate Obama specifically criticizes in outspoken terms the decision not to waive a federal law known as the Stafford Act that requires communities hit by disasters to match 10 percent of federal aid.

“We don’t need to build more highways out in the suburbs.”

But that’s how government builds all those small businesses.

“Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business—you didn’t build that.” - Barack Obama

Why should those in the suburbs continue to pay taxes? He is not only inciting racists, but also a tax revolt.

Here in Atlanta where traffic is a nightmare, we recently had a new highway bill go down in flames. We can’t even build roads anymore in this country because democrats want to be able to rob my wife on the train.

Is that because its black mayor and police failed the chocolate city?

I remember when rescue teams were coming in from other states they had to wait a day and take a course on political correctness on dealing with the citizens of the city.

This video explains alot. Almost as much as when Biden said they have been sticking it to the middle class for 4 years.

My college-aged daughters watched this and were horrified. What happened to their cool president who is on the View and Ellen? He sounded like a radical Black Panther.

CNN politics web site now carrying this. However they say it was extensivley covered in 2007 (lie) and that the story now is conservative news collusion right before the debates. The article is just unabashed propaganda support for obama and ignores the real substance of obama’s lies and apparent support for his hate-monger pastor. My head was dizzy from the spin.

Our MSM has devolved into soviet union style media.

This isn’t news. Dems have been beating the old “Bush hates blacks in NOLA” drum for years, and will for years to come.

I saw the video last night, and it’s a ho-hum, not a game-changer.

Yes, but the city was totally under water. There were volunteers with boats lined up on Airline Hwy. leading into the city waiting for the OK to go in. People came from all over - black, white, brown came to help. And, when the water receded, we volunteered to help the Red Cross at our airport. Every person who drove through the lines were given $250 with the maximum 5 people to a car. Well, guess what, EVERY car coming through had 5 people! Most of those complaining of no one helping got $1,250 per car load and that was just the beginning. No question there were screw ups thanks to the Mayor and the LA Govenor. But, that wasn’t the main focus of the socialist media. It seemed that all the focus was on the 9th Ward and the Superdome even though everyone was under water. President Bush flew over because There was no place to land. I don’t mean to be so long winded but NOLA was given a lot of help but with all the devistation how much is enough. Now, my insurance doubled from last year - $4,300 per year (that’s a lot of moola for me). They say it is from Katrina - not to many insurance companies want to write here. So, I guess you can say, we are still feeling the aftermath and will continue to do so one way or another for a long time.

The good parts were extensively covered, but the real gist of what he said was hidden,as usual, by his devout followers, the media.

Obama is a racist, in the extreme.

Obama the uniter, not a divider. That’s what the MSM wants you to believe, which is why they kept the “unscripted” comments from the public’s knowledge.

So independents should be asking themselves who they can trust to provided them unbiased and willfully deceitful information...
