Coming attractions: Breitbart’s videos of Obama’s college years

posted at 2:03 pm on March 2, 2012 by

Andrew Breitbart may be gone, but his tireless quest to expose the left’s corruption and corrosive influence on the nation succeeds him. So does a legacy in the form of videotapes of a young and allegedly quite radical Barack Obama, which Breitbart promised to release at this year’s CPAC.

“I have videos,” he told a like-minded audience at last month’s event. “This election we’re going to vet him.”

It will be a first for Obama—and Americans: a get-acquainted op for a nation that elected a man based purely on empty rhetoric and unkeepable promises.

Steve Bannon, a writer, documentary filmmaker, and friend of Breitbart, appeared on FOX News Channel’s Hannity on Thursday to announce the release of those elusive tapes within a week to 10 days. In this video of the segment, beginning around 4:00, Bannon tells Sean Hannity:

There‘s a set of tapes and we’re going through it. The staff … the guys are going through a series of tapes of President Obama at Harvard and… we’ll come back to you in a week or two and show them here on the Hannity show.”

In the words of Breitbart, the videos will show “why racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008.”

I don’t expect any surprises at all. That’s exactly what he’s dedicated his entire life to. All I hope for is voters to be better informed for the 2012 election.

That was me for 20 years, but I didn’t hear any of the radical things I said.

For those who think it will be dismissed in 2012, like allegations of this kind of stuff were dismissed in ’08, look at some discussion threads on articles from back then when someone would try to bring up 0bama’s radical past. 10 liberals would follow with some variation of: “LALALALALALA I CAN’T HEAR U OVER THE SOUND OF THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT LOLOLOL” or “Want real reform and an end to crony capitalism? Vote Obama!” (I LOLed at that one)

Instead of hope, there is now a record of failure. And a lot of folks aren’t happy with the change 0bama brought. These tapes may provide them with all the excuse they need not to vote for him this time.

Thank God for Andrew Breitbart.

I’m afraid I will be disappointed. I’m kind of hoping for a firey speech from the young future President ranting about “whitey” and spewing communism and forceful takeovers of 401ks for redistribution to the decendents of slavery. Oh wait, that was a Jeremiah Wright sermon I saw on Youtube.

FIFY.

I find it interesting that Breitbart’s grandfather-in-law was chief of Harvard campus police and served on that force for 20 years. Of course, the videos were probably obtained via other connections. Just an interesting coincidence. Can’t wait for next week.

I hope they have made many copies and have the master set under lock and key!

Essentially up to now the left have taken every word written by Obama himself on his favorite subject “Himself” as Gods truth. Never, ever any fact check…. never any investigative research into the many allegations of impropriety. Those that have much to hide do… well,HIDE things.

Just the fact that he is a democrat was enough for me though, plus He LIES…. I really don’t care about anything else, but I have to admit as a political junkie… I am looking forward to seeing what there is.
