Stephen Bannon: We’ll release the tapes Breitbart has of Obama’s college years in the next 10 days

posted at 9:56 pm on March 1, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via Mediaite, here’s the hotly anticipated answer to the lingering question raised by Breitbart’s CPAC speech. No, he wasn’t just messing with the left’s head when he said he has tapes of The One in his younger years. They exist, says Bannon, and he and some of the “Big” guys like Joel Pollak and Larry O’Connor are going through them. They must be near the end of their review too if Bannon can promise them as soon as 10 days from now. Obviously there’ll be organizational upheaval for them to deal with in the days ahead, especially with a new Breitbart site set to launch imminently. Watch to the end for a hint about that; supposedly it’s been in the works for two years and AB was putting the finishing touches on it last night in preparation for a Sunday launch. I assume it has to do with Obama and the election, but stay tuned.

I hope not blogging at work.

Yes please. If you check up thread I was asking if we could drop the pretense of political animosities and just exchange some honest questions on a less adversarial tone.

Thanks for the concern, Jim but some of us don’t have bosses. We even get to pick out what we get to wear every day. Pretty neat, huh?

And isn’t it interesting that, while living and attending school in Indonesia, little power-hungry Barry Hussein Soetoro/Obama reportedly expressed his desire to grow up and become Prime Minister of Indonesia (a position that presumably requires Indonesian citizenship)? Hmmmmmm.

AZCoyote on March 2, 2012 at 12:48 PM

Interesting indeed.

It’s also interesting that he attended Occidental as “Barry Soetoro”, possibly as a foreign student – which very might well be another affirmative action renouncing US citizenship.

Or you could just take off three months like me. Anyway, I was just wondering if it is just so easy for you to reregister to comment here that you don’t really mind people knowing that you’ve been posting as previous screen-names; or getting banned every other month. I ask myself this because it just seems that it’s either very hard for you to mask the common insults you level at us here or you simply don’t care if you’re made or not. As intelligent as you seem to be, I find it difficult to believe you don’t notice the common language and topic assaults that you use.

You’re a well known commenter here for a myriad of reasons. But it would be just nice to know why you find it so important to come back here and slowly devolve into the vulgar troll that a bit of time and thread exchanges seems to always produce.

hawkdriver on March 2, 2012 at 1:48 PM

The old Trib column you cite remains an extremely weak and irrelevant example of President Obama supposeldy “lying to get himself elected,” which is the claim I was refuting in the first place, a claim that I never said you made.

“Texene,” the original poster, may be an “unattributed interlocutor” to you, but his/her post is on this same thread. Still there now, should you care to go look. I saw no need to name Texene in my original response because when I make comments on Internet threads, I try to focus my criticism on the statement itself, not the individual who made the statement.

And that’s it for today. I see that since I started this reply, I’ve already been called a “full retard” for something else I posted. Gotta love the level of discourse around here.

Drew Lowell on March 2, 2012 at 12:03 PM

It is the custom here to include a citation of people you are quoting. That way others can find the citation (based on the time stamp) and evaluate the full context for themselves. I understand that you are new here, and are not aware of that custom. Now you know.

So you agree I never made the claim “he lied to get himself elected.” Thank you. I was pushing back against your comment about Obama Derangement Syndrome, which you found evidence of in the quote,

please let there be proof of something we know.
Drew Lowell on March 2, 2012 at 12:53 AM

Obviously your claim was that the derangement lies in “knowing” something, and then looking for “proof” of that something, the critique is that Texene “knew” it before it was “proven.” That was the essence of your attack on Texene as suffering from Obama Derangement Syndrome. I was pushing back against that. That what Texene meant was that we “know” things, like we know (as fully demonstrated by the article from the Trib which, btw, included the letter itself in full) that Obama’s pose as a new kind of politician, who saw not red state or blue state, was, in fact, not new at all, but was really a machine hack when it served his purposes. But there’s what you know, and then there’s what you can get others to admit. For that, you need something more, a gun that is not only smoking but glowing, something that even the MSM can’t ignore. That’s what Texene meant by first “knowing” (how people with critical thinking skills can read an article and understand its implications), and “proving,” which in this contexts means bringing something that even those without critical thinking skills can understand.

If you want to say that the deception that Obama employed, in portraying himself as something (a true reformer) that he was and is not, and the complicity that the media demonstrated by hiding any counterindications, were not “lies,” go ahead and split that hair. I will tell you, however, that it was at least a monumental deception.

I don’t believe in calling people names when I argue with them. I leave that to the liberals who comment on my FB posts. I’m sorry if you were insulted here.

Do you have an argument to make to support the assertion that the column is “extremely weak and irrelevant” or are you just going to assert that? Keep in mind, the letter, which in and of itself is pretty damning if you appreciate who Todd Stroger was, is part of the column.

What the media will do will be to spin it as they did with the good Reverend. They’ll say it was more than 20 years ago and it does not reflect who he has evolved into.

Except that it’ll hopefully become obvious that his every policy is in line with the radical leftist agenda that he raved about 20 years ago.

DanaLynn on March 1, 2012 at 10:55 PM

It matters not. Neither the GOP or Oromney(McCain II) will mention anything truthful, even if it’s radically bad, about him. The entrenched right fears being the opposition even more than than they feared Sarah Palin.
