October surprise: Drudge teasing potentially gamechanging video to be released tonight; Update: “Obama’s other race speech”; Update: Is this the vid? Update: Transcript added

posted at 5:26 pm on October 2, 2012 by Allahpundit

It’s the talk of Twitter and of our comment threads, so here’s a dedicated post to let your imaginations run wild.

Bad for Romney or bad for Obama? Ace is in eeyore mode as a defense mechanism to prepare his brain and heart in case it’s bad for Mitt, but that would be a surprise given how pro-Romney the Drudge Report has been during the campaign. (“No one has displaced [Romney campaign manager] Matt Rhoades in the Republican firmament as the go-to Drudge guy,” said one top GOP operative last year.) On his site, Drudge says the video was recorded six years ago, which means it can’t be the long-sought Khalidi tape. That was recorded in 2003. It can’t be the Michelle Obama “whitey”/”why’d he” tape either, which was allegedly recorded in 2004. This is likely something new.

Can’t wait to find out which campaign pulled the pin and tossed this grenade by feeding oppo to the media the night before the debate. Excitement! While we wait, here’s Paul Ryan converting a turnover by America’s sexiest grandpa into one of the easiest lay-ups in political history.

Update: Tomorrow’s debate should be a humdinger:

One thing to bear in mind per Drudge’s mention that the tape is six years old: Obama was already two years into his Senate term at the time and well along in thinking about running for president. A guy in that position normally isn’t given to saying Drudge-worthy things about race publicly, so I’m assuming the tape must have been made in a semi-private setting — at a fundraiser, say, a la Romney’s “47 percent” comments. I wonder if Hillary’s camp knew about it all along in 2007-08 but sat on it because it was too politically explosive or if this will be news to them too.

Update: It’ll air on Hannity’s show. The teaser on his site: “It’s a bombshell video that you will only see tonight on ‘Hannity,’ and it’s one that could dramatically impact the race for the White House”.

Update: Haven’t had a chance to watch yet, but a reader notes that this video from 2007 looks a lot like the screencap that Drudge just posted. Drudge is also now teasing, though, that the Daily Caller will have an “unscrubbed” version of the video. Tucker Carlson says on Twitter that it’ll be up on the DC at 9 p.m.

Update: A reporter on Twitter points to this Roland Martin piece for CNN in 2007 noting that the Hampton speech drew fire from some on the right at the time, mainly for O’s references to “quiet riots” as a way of describing economic despair among minorities. Martin downplays it, but he’s an O supporter. Let’s see what the DC has.

Update: Here’s the transcript — as prepared for delivery — of O’s 2007 speech at Hampton. Still not positive if this is the speech Drudge has in mind, but the screencap does match up.

Update: A friend e-mails to point out that some of the bits quoted on Drudge are *not* in the transcript. Right — it’s only the remarks as prepared for delivery. To find out how O ad-libbed, we’ll have to wait for Hannity and the DC.

Update: More from Drudge:

Inverness on October 2, 2012 at 8:22 PM

Here is some ACTUAL quotes, based of PARTIAL quotes Drudge listed

“We know that we have to invest in transitional jobs too. When there are people who are homeless, veterans struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder from this war in Iraq, and thousands of children aging out of foster care, we can’t expect them to have all the skills they need for work. They may need help with basic skills—how to show up to work on time, wear the right clothes, and act appropriately in an office. We have to help them get there. That’s why I have called for $50 million to begin innovative new job training and workforce development programs.”

Drudge also has a portion of this Obama quote posted on his site:

“No one should be denied work in this country because they can’t find public transportation in their neighborhood.

But we should do just as much if not more to invest in minority-owned businesses in our neighborhoods so people don’t need to travel miles away in the first place.”

So yeah, those two quotes are way out of context on Drudge. Read it in full context, and you tell me what people are going to have a problem with. Knowing that now, do you really think anywhere in this video Obama is going to say society is racist and whites get rich off blacks? Notice Drudge says Obama “suggests” that which means he doesnt even actually say it. If Drudges biggest headliners on this are out of context harmless remarks, what do actually expect to see?

Let me get this straight: Romney saying 47% of people won’t support him because they’re part of a dependency culture and it’s a HUGE deal…But Obama straight up says in a scrubbed/hidden video that poor people essentially can’t tie their own fucking shoes, don’t know how to act in a professional setting and are hopeless on their own and it’s a nothingburger???

Youd think Drudge would give the most “damaging” quotes on his site right now. So if those are the most damaging, and they are extremely out of context, what does that tell you about what you’re going to see tonight?

I like Drudge, but my feelings are this is going to be a disaster and backfire. And if I were Romney, I wouldnt utter a word about it.

I’m reserving judgement until I can watch the entire 40 minutes on my own.

BacaDog on October 2, 2012 at 8:33 PM

IMO he was a Muslim before that which dovetails with what we know of his childhood in Indonesia.

Now Obama saying he was a Muslim…now that would be a bombshell, but too much to hope for.

sharrukin on October 2, 2012 at 8:14 PM

It really shouldn’t be that hard to read between the lines. I honestly don’t think him claiming he was, or even IS, a Muslim would harm him. These people simply don’t care.

There are plenty of people in white suburbia who would pull it for Obama because they are totally absorbed in their school-induced white guilt. That speech might crack their eyes open.

It’s important that the money quotes from this speech be put in their proper context: namely the way the media buries them to protect Obama. Just like they buried these definitive statements of support for, and close relationship with Wright — which Obama the candidate denied — they bury the real truth about Fast & Furious and the debacle in Libya.

If it’s not tied in a relevant way to the lies that are happening right now, today, and costing American lives, the media will find a way to spin it against Romney, somehow, some way.

And I am equally eager to hear from Romney what loopholes he is going to close and what programs he will cut to fund his tax cuts.

urban elitist on October 2, 2012 at 7:51 PM

You only have to “fund tax cuts” if you believe all the money belongs to government.

monalisa on October 2, 2012 at 8:46 PM

Don’t do it! She may have touched Al Franken!

:D

I’m going to sick the gilled one on you for that.

gophergirl on October 2, 2012 at 8:46 PM

Carnac is wrong: AT MINIMUM this video wrecks the debate prep Obama was banking on, bcuz heavy reliance on the 47 percent Romney “gaffe” is now down the drain.

If for no other reason, the timing is good.

matthew8787 on October 2, 2012 at 8:34 PM

Exactly.

He’s arrogant….he’s got nothing positive to point to…and his job this debate is “deflect and blame”.

Kinda hard already with:

“You didn’t build that”…

F&F again out front….

Benghazi…

Radical Islam running amok globally…

Now they’re shoving this under his nose and prepping him for it.

Timing is just perfect. A rattled obama will be a pleasure to watch.

The school he attended in Indonesia is just a simple fact.

TarheelBen on October 2, 2012 at 8:35 PM

Well yeah its true. But why does it matter?

libfreeordie on October 2, 2012 at 8:46 PM

Your night to buy anything from anyone?

verbaluce on October 2, 2012 at 8:37 PM

Nope, can’t afford to. I’m a member of the middle class that Joe was talking about. You know, the ones that have been buried the last 4 years.

Actually, I should say, I used to be a member of the middle class. Officially now classified as low-income.

Will you marry me?!! :)

BacaDog on October 2, 2012 at 8:42 PM

Good think my Mom isn’t a HAer – she would take you seriously and come find you LOL!

GG – still pathetically single :(

gophergirl on October 2, 2012 at 8:48 PM

What are the odds that the media or the moderator asks Romney to condemn this video.

Romney must condemn Barack Obama for the words he has spoken

Rachel Maddow MSNBC ‏@maddow
What Drudge/Fox is hyping as “OBAMA DECLARES… POOR PEOPLE” is actually Obama talking about veterans w/PTSD: http://is.gd/YTHo3U

Rachel Maddow MSNBC ‏@maddow
… and so now Drudge drops the “poor people” line from its front page.

“Poor people” comment is now gone from Drudge. So is the red text. Interesting.

I hope ‘farsighted‘ is still around. I’m afraid I owe him (her) an apology for having misread the transcript. I stand corrected.

Which libfree is this?

Is this the real one ? Or is it the one who posts under libfree’s name?

This sounds like the imposter.

This just in, staff told to abandon silver and china and head for the walk in freezers, the kobe and lobster first in the lifeboats, we can eat with our hands if we have to.

waterytart on October 2, 2012 at 8:50 PM

I’m curious – what does CNN say is racist about it? Is referencing a speech a politician makes to an audience predominantly of the same race now considered racist? I don’t get it.

TarheelBen on October 2, 2012 at 8:41 PM

Let me explain lib logic.

Broadcasting a video of Obama addressing a black audience and saying things they want to hear about how unfair America is to them is irrelevant and racist.

Broadcasting a video of Romney addressing an audience of supporters and saying Obama has a solid 47% voting block he can never sway is relevant and divisive.

Be sure to report back! I will be here, since I don’t know if I can stand listening to Obama lie for a solid hour and a half.

Night Owl on October 2, 2012 at 8:53 PM

No teleprompter tomorrow night for Obama — and he is unpracticed at debates, lazy and arrogant as well. Makes mistakes every time without TOTUS.

matthew8787 on October 2, 2012 at 8:54 PM

If they can trace back as to “who” or “which” network edited the tape to benefit the boy king, that’s good enough for me. Drip, drip, drip on their credibility. It will make a certain, albeit small percentage of voters to wonder what it is they’re hiding.

Oh- and by the way, is O’Reilly the biggest tool on earth or what?
