Exclusive: In heated ’07 speech, Obama
lavishes praise on Wright, says feds
‘don’t care’ about New Orleans [Video]

Daily Caller, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 10/2/2012 9:02:20 PM

In a video obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama tells an audience of black ministers, including the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, that the U.S. government shortchanged Hurricane Katrina victims because of racism.“The people down in New Orleans they don’t care about as much!” Obama shouts in the video, which was shot in June of 2007 at Hampton University in Virginia. By contrast, survivors of Sept. 11 and Hurricane Andrew received generous amounts of aid, Obama explains. The reason? Unlike residents of majority-black New Orleans, the federal government

The White House and MSM are already doing damage control on this. CNN has nothing on it yet.

The MSM coverage of this speech back in 2007 did NOT include the most incendiary stuff Obama said regarding his affiliations with Wright, nor the crazy things he said about hurricane Katrina.

Obama is of course made of teflon and probably NOTHING will come to the attention of the average voter regarding this because it will be squelched and the Wa Po and others will simply ignore it.

I hope Romney brings this all up tomorrow. God help us if Obama wins a 2nd term.

Major media is now debating whether to:
1) Pretend this doesn't exist
2) Attack the people who are airing it
3) Claim this is all doctored footage

It is not debating:
4) Whether to play excerpts that embarrass Obama and might cost him votes

Juan Williams is in a total snit and won't let anyone get a word in about this on Hannity. He is really rude. It hurts to see and hear the truth, huh Juan? Obama is disgusting and he plays a role. Don't tell me he's not a sociopath! He's one way with "his" people and has the drawl and actions of a street thug. Then he comes in front of the American people thinking we are all stupid. He must lose this election or we'll be done for.

No. 4: I agree with you. Here's one more scenario:

MSM plays some inoffensive clip (30 seconds max) and asks, "Is this all there is? Who cares?" They then dismiss it all. The sheeple, who do not obtain more news that their TV sets give them, then blame the Romney camp for trying to make something out of nothing and vote for the guy who gives out free cell phones.

COMMUNITY AGITATOR. The real name of the "community organizer." His purpose is to stir up the black community and inspire racial strife and use them to take over the Democrat Party and turn it into the Socialist Party. And it worked. Liberation theology was/is a big part of this, funded in part by the Soviet Union as revealed in documents after it fell and released from the basement of the Lubyanka in Dzerzhinsky Square. 0bama is the official ambassador of hate, lies and class warfare.

I watched all 37 minutes over at the DC. A well-informed voter, I can say i was shocked by how fake Dear Leader seems with his preacher cadence, his shout outs to Rev. Wright, his conflation of Katrina and the LA riots to condemn white folks who 'don't care about black people'. This video will hurt Barry with Blacks -- who see what a phony Milhouse is trying to act like Hillary and prove that he too is down for the struggle -- and to middle class crackers who don't like being called a racist by their CIC. Is it a game changer? No. Will it have an impact? Yes. Obama is a phony.

To me, one of the more interesting parts of the video was Obama saying that money should be taken from the suburbs and put into "our" community. This is more of his redistribution beliefs.

Remember, Obama was the attorney of record (back when he still had a law license) when the Chicago blacks sued the banks to force them into giving loans to sub-prime creditors/borrowers. This was what started the housing credit bubble that nearly brought down the economy (a goal of stealth socialist democrats). Wouldn't you like to read the legal brief / petition? It's probably redistribution policy all dressed up in legal terms, tied up with racist bows.

My takeaway from this - in addition to his flagrant and shameless race-baiting and divisiveness - was the weirdness of the way he can morph into a facsimile of an AME preacher. Ranting and gesticulating and invoking Jesus Christ. (I was expecting a lightning strike about then.) And how much he seems to revel in doing this.

He is not authentically anything or anyone, is he.

The Clinton Library took the wraps off another batch of White House documents Friday afternoon, offering new insights into how aides scrambled to address the Monica Lewinsky scandal, how the hot-button issue of race tied the White House staff up in knots and how former President Bill Clinton cast a wide net for advice in advance of his major speeches.The new set of Clinton documents make little mention of then-first lady Hillary Clinton, and so are unlikely to have a major political impact. However, many of the memos were written by or mention aides to Bill Clinton who now hold

WASHINGTON — The online insurance marketplace in Oregon is such a technological mess that residents have been signing up for health coverage by hand. In Texas, political opposition to President Obama’s health law is so strong that some residents believe, erroneously, that the program is banned in their state.But in Connecticut, a smoothly functioning website, run by competent managers, has successfully enrolled so many patients that officials are offering to sell their expertise to states like Maryland, which is struggling to sign people up for coverage.

Two CNN producers were arrested Tuesday for trying to sneak into the World Trade Center site to test its security — after The Post reported that a teen made it all the way to the spire of the world’s top terror target. Connor Boals, 26, and Yon Pomrenze, 35, made multiple attempts to get onto Ground Zero before being arrested shortly after 2 p.m., law enforcement sources said. The pair initially tried to get through a gate at Vesey and Washington streets, with a source saying they told the cop who stopped them that “if a 16-year-old could get on the site, they should be able to get in.” Next, they headed east, with Boals twice being spotted

In the wake of the Romney/Ryan ticket’s defeat in 2012, progressive pundits engaged in a round of self-congratulation, spending considerable hours pontificating on the systemic and intractable defects plaguing the GOP. Some on the left observed that the Republican Party fails to appeal to young and minority voters because they are viewed as a party focused entirely on preserving the gains made by those who are already successful. They advised the GOP to devote their attention to the problems faced by everyday Americans, specifically those of the less fortunate. It may surprise you to know that partisan Democrats do not

The governor, John Kitzhaber, a doctor who left the emergency room for politics, made health care his main issue. Fellow Democrats controlling the Legislature went along, embracing ambitious plans to extend insurance coverage and Medicaid to low-income residents. Yet for all that, by some measures Oregon has among the most dysfunctional online insurance exchanges in the nation. Only about 50,000 people in Oregon have signed up for a commercial

Health industry officials say ObamaCare-related premiums will double in some parts of the country, countering claims recently made by the administration. The expected rate hikes will be announced in the coming months amid an intense election year, when control of the Senate is up for grabs. The sticker shock would likely bolster the GOP’s prospects in November and hamper ObamaCare insurance enrollment efforts in 2015. The industry complaints come less than a week after Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius sought to downplay concerns about rising premiums in the healthcare sector. She told lawmakers rates would increase in 2015 but

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again.

"As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December
