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

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:

Obama’s kryptonite is the economy. A race speech hyped by Drudge and aired by Hannity will not move the needle. At most, it’ll excite conservatives who don’t like Obama already.

YYZ on October 2, 2012 at 5:51 PM

Only caveat: If it’s virulently and explicitly anti-Semitic (which I doubt, Obama’s a dullard but he’s still too crafty to openly profess Jew hate in a public setting where he knows he’s being filmed), it might move the needle a bit on the Jewish vote, which could be a game-changer in OH, PA and FL.

Notwithstanding, LBJ’s lies, Jimmy Carters wasted time, the unamerican commie left Democrats in the Senate and House, Bill Clintons treason with a skanks smile, John F. Kerry’s true lies, and now this lie machine aka unPresident B. Obama,, if you said the Democrat Party was hell bent on the destruction of the U.S. you would be 100% correct in understanding their lust for all power.

All of it enabled with traitors within via the msm, the ABC’s, NBC, CBS, CNN, PBS, and the Weak Times and Newsisweaks.

They are addicts and their drug of choice is power.
Until they admit they have an addiction, they are our problem.
They know not any first step to a solution.

We do know them.

It’s only a mistake if it’s a nothingburger or if Team Mitt left greasy fingerprints on it. If it’s substantive then it will demolish Barry’s confidence before the first (and most important) debate. It will magnify any advantage Romney might gain in the debate and diminish any advantage Obama might have gained. (again, assuming there’s something there and it’s not just overhyped fluff)

Here’s a question: What prompted/instigated the comments? Was it just a run of the mill ordinary event, or did something happen to prompt it and was it directed at anyone in particular.

Some events in 2006:

- Boxer Day tsunami.
- Saddam hanged.
- 2006 elections.

From what I’ve gathered, (from listening to Hannity) this is a tape we have already seen, but the media edited it to be favorable to Obama and the full tape is being shown tonight.

It is about race.

What surfaced with regards to Obama/race during election of 2008?

MississippiMom on October 2, 2012 at 5:40 PM

There was a tape that came out in 2008. It was of Obama at some function. He was speaking in an absurdly comical “negro-dialect” and gave a shout out to his good buddy Jeremiah Wright, whom he called “Rev.” I’m guessing this is from that event.

Well, the economy and Libya. I agree that this is unlikely to do much if it is just a speech that includes the typical leftist views on race or something like that. It is possible that Hillary was aware of it, but decided not to use it because the other race-related things like Jeremiah Wright didn’t seem to go anywhere.

That’s not a fair comparison, because eminem grew up with blacks. eminem is a lot blacker than Barry is.

The key word is “admits” – which implies you’d hit it too, just wouldn’t want to confess. :P

I’ll give her your number…..

If it were really juicy, it would have broken already.

Yeah, I don’t see whatever the tape is being a major game changer. If it’s serious, the MSM will ignore it until they’ve had time to “debunk” it or “fact check” it or say, “no Obama was saying was he, not whitey” or whatever. Big yawn, guaranteed.

Not to say that I’m not going to watch it, though…

REV WRIGHT!!!!!

Maybe it’s that infamous supposed tape of Michelle Obama saying “whitey” at a speech she gave a few years ago.

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.

Or if they passed it along…

Anyone recognize the setting of the screenshot now on Drudge? (assuming it’s from the vid)

O’Reilly’s show has already been taped. He’s always 3 days behind any story.

JPeterman on October 2, 2012 at 6:08 PM

He is! I can’t stand his show- I don’t really like Hannity’s either, but I think O’Reilly is so incredibly rude.

BettyRuth on October 2, 2012 at 6:10 PM

I bet he is doing a Rev Wright Act. If trolls show up with exploded heads then it was a good tape.

You can bet the Axelturf crisis control extra shift has been called in.

Dr. Carlo Lombardi on October 2, 2012 at 6:10 PM

How come this was not aired in 2008?

Schadenfreude on October 2, 2012 at 6:10 PM

THE SHOUT OUT TO REV. WRIGHT, WHO IS IN AUDIENCE…
