Or maybe even 'theirs'. Forse Italiano sarebbe piu semplice?

From one account, ABC News had it first, the Journolist put an end to that.

Ranger

As I recall, Federal law states that any Federal official that incurse a debt to the government through an illegal action can be held personally financially responsible.

I'm posting this for Janet with tears in my eyes. Somehow, I think Janet would do the same as Kelly.

It's filoncino that's in the oven, rick..Don't play games.

centralcal

The tape seems to have come from Daily Caller - which means Tucker Carlson, which means Tucker could have easily "shopped" the tape to FNC (he is a FNC paid contributor, after all) - for whatever reason it seems they provided it to Hannity.

The Daily Caller ‏@DailyCaller

Obama bombshell video coming soon. Check back here at 9pm for the full story...

Stephanie

Now added at Drudge

'We don't need to build more highways out in the suburbs'...

Clarice

Great if his anti-suburbs thing is in there--Listen up soccer moms..

henry

Via LI, Buzzfeed has the clip. It is a speech at Hampton University. meh. Not new.

centralcal

From Drudge:

DAILY CALLER PLANS EXCLUSIVE RELEASE OF 'UNSCRUBBED' OBAMA VIDEO... DEVELOPING...

daddy

"MATT DRUDGE ‏@DRUDGE

Internal debate at news network about airing tape tonight, on eve of debate... MORE "

I'm betting that that Tape, if it is not leaked or released prior to the debate, will be a topic of the debate in the form of the Moderator demanding of Romney that he condemn the release of the tape, and that he state in the strongest possible terms that he does not condone such gutter politics.

Have no idea who the moderator is.

centralcal

Apparently, what Buzzfeed has is an "edited" version henry - per what I am seeing on Twitter, etc. Cannot vouch for that, however - do note that Daily Caller says they have an "unscrubbed" version.

Jim Eagle

BuzzFeed says it is this one.

I doubt it since its been on the internet since 2007. For Hannity and Fox to go out on the line, it better be something other than this one and Sue's.

centralcal

David Martosko ‏@EditMeDavid

It's true. Top Drudge banner is about a @DailyCaller story. Video will be online at 9pm, and then on Hannity.

NJ Jan

If it is a blockbuster, it needs to go viral fast, beyond Hannity and Fox. The apolitical soccer moms need to know about it and see it. If he is attacking suburbs, etc., FB, Twitter and You Tube are needed. Pinterest would get their attention -- they all have time for that. I love my older daughter, but she is a poster child for non political info gathering. When. The news is on, she's watching Doc McStuffins. Could we get it on Disney Jr ?

daddy

And of course right on cue for the debates Anti-Frackers:

Article:
Unusual Dallas Earthquakes Linked to Fracking, Expert Says

"Three unusual earthquakes that shook a suburb west of Dallas over the weekend appear to be connected to the past disposal of wastewater from local hydraulic fracturing operations, a geophysicist who has studied earthquakes in the region says."

"...he doesn't think it's a coincidence that an intensification in seismic activity in the Dallas area came the year after a pocket of ground just south of (and thousands of feet below) the DFW airport began to be inundated with wastewater from hydraulic fracturing."

Porchlight

I just don't see how it can be something that the Daily Caller put up a year ago.

jimmyk

If it really is new and damaging, why didn't we have it in 2008? Who suppressed it?

Jim Eagle

daddy,

Fracking can't cause an earthquake since it doesn't have enough energy to do so even if it wanted to. You need a tremendous amount of ground acceleration to cause a geological seismic event called earthquake and you are way off by few million power to getting that with tracking.

But perception is reality to the reality based community and their apologists, the media.

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

Tucker Carlson says the video we saw on you tube has been edited. He has the unedited tape. Will be on his website at 9 tonight. Hannity will also have it on his show.

Jim Eagle

Clarice,

If that is it then it is Meh on steroids. Romney shouldn't even acknowledge it or give an opinion - do not bring in religion if you don't have to.

daddy

JiB,

Unfortunately I am not the one who needs to be convinced of that. It's the 150 million moron's in this country listening to Al Gore, Cuomo, the EPA, Salazar, and Obama.

centralcal

All the usual lefties are coming out of the woodwork (Buzzfeed Ben, Mark Halperin) saying the video has been available on YouTube since 2007.

Tucker seems to be claiming he has a fuller, unedited version than what has previously been seen.

We shall find out soon, I suppose.

rse

That no more highways out to the suburbs is the Regional Equity Movement that Stanley Kurtz wrote about.

When I started looking into it I tracked REM back to a 1998 Brookings sponsored conference. The book is the one Gore wrote the Forward for. The 2000 book saif the Gamaliel Foundation had the national lead on the REM issue.

PLus when I tracked in the Environmental Justice aspect that is what pulled in Van Jones.

What I worked on yesterday about using the Parent Trigger to community organize had language in it that tracked directly to the Regional Equity Movement.

Plus I know Linda Darling Hammond has been pressuring foundations to fund REM.

Jim Eagle

Not trying to convince you daddy, you're a Tar Heel and know how the world works unlike those smart ass Smurfs down the road:)

BTW, who gets to sweep up the remains of Juan Williams after Dr. K mutilates him with his intelligence (doesn't even draw blood).

Clarice

A couple of years ago Froilch said the earthquakes were not directly related to fracking.

OH my - much, much more being added to Drudge - go check it out!

MarkO

"Will the American people hold him accountable? It doesn't seem so."

Will more than 20% even know about it?

In an ordinary time, with a semi-legitimate press, the Obama tape would doom a candidate. Will it even make ABC news?

The embargo is something sinister, corrupt, infectious. Will the moderator ask a qustion about it?

Plus, Obama bribes contractors.

drudgeDAILY CALLER: 'For nearly 40 minutes, using an accent he never adopts in public, Obama describes a racist, zero-sum society, in which the white majority profits by exploiting black America'..

Jim Eagle

Whoa! Where the hell has that tape been?

I wonder if it will prompt the release of the Khalidi tape or even the one where Obama tells Clinton and Clapper to not pay attention to what is going on in Behghazi until after the election?

Wally T

"how to show up for work on time"

CPT?

Threadkiller

Tucker better lay low. Last time Hannity was this worked up, he got Brietbart killed.

Ranger

Sounds like an expanded version of "This is a world where white mens' greed... runs a world in need." That was the core lesson of the "Audacity of Hope" sermon.

Wally T

'white majority profits by exploiting black America'

That line may have worked better about 230 years ago. I know I am not profiting by paying for others food stamps, cell phones, welfare and health care when I can barely afford my own.

Extraneus

None of the lefty blogs seem to be talking about it.

Fits right in with Moo's believing she needs to teach the great unwashed how to eat and stuff.

This could be a blockbuster if Romney plays it right...

Reels off littany of crap they are getting involved in.

You are too stupid to handle a mortgage.
You are too stupid to get a job.
You are too stupid to get ID.

Just how dumb do they think you are???

Danube of Thought

A little billet-doux from the SpecOps people at the LUN.

rse

centralcal-that's the soft skills movement that is a big part of what's going on as the real reform he has mandated.

Y'all just keep describing it. It's my Tuesday driving tour. So far everything quoted fits in with what I know he has mandated.

Must go.

Jim Eagle

Heh! Finally someone speaking power to truth:)

Wally T

"OBAMA DECLARES HOW POOR PEOPLE: 'Need help with basic skills, how to shop, how to show up for work on time, how to wear the right clothes, how to act appropriately in an office'"

Giving them more handouts and removing work from welfare isn't going to help them. Mitt wants to give opportunities so they can provide for themselves, Barry wants to keep them dependent on government.

henry

Ah, 40 minutes is much longer than the 9.1 minute Buzzfeed clip. Who edited that clip, NBC?

Kathy Kattenburg

"Bush's surge was successful and Obama opposed it in Iraq."

and

The "Obama Surge" is now a certified failure."

And there's no reason why if the surge worked in Iraq it shouldn't work in Afghanistan. After all, the countries are exactly the same. They're the same size, they have the same topography, and their history and culture is exactly the same.

We really should be able to take the same policy that worked in Iraq and transport it to Afghanistan -- or any other country, for that matter -- and get the same results.

Extraneus

I'm looking forward to the tape, since I've never learned how to act appropriately in an office.

Well, except for not splitting infinitives, of course.

maryrose

This, if handled correctly has the power to be BIG!
However the spin and excuse machines will be working overtime to tamp this down and say Obama didn't mean it and he has evolved since then. I say a leopard doesn't change his spots. This tape represents the hidden Obama, ergo, the REAL ONE>.

Hmmm, an 18-minute gap. Where's Rosemary?

And I thought I'd fed KK to the narcisolator.

KK is back? This tape must be good.

Btw, I don't think any lib we've had here is a paid operative except for Foo Bar and some Muslims who graced our presence a few years ago, I forget why.

Danube of Thought

"We really should be able to take the same policy that worked in Iraq and transport it to Afghanistan -- or any other country, for that matter -- and get the same results."

An utterly imbecilic statement, but moot in any event: it is over and we have lost. Our loss was assured when Obama, in announcing his Failed Surge, could not refrain from announcing our withdrawal date at the same time. He did that for no reason whatsoever other than to mollify his leftist base.

He has the blood of 1,600 fine men on his filthy hands. God damn his soul.

maryrose

Can this be considered an October surprise? By comparison it makes the 47% remark seem like nothing. He definitely doesn't like "whitey" very much. I wonder if Independent voters will be finally convinced of what an eternal fraud he is and has been his whole life. His true colors and his true feelings are evident in this tape. The great cypher has been unmasked. The emperor has no clothes.

narciso

What an arrogant, condescending jerk, he comes across, re Youngman (Henny's distant relative)
we were told, Waterworld was good, even Jeanne
Tripplehorn couldn't save it.

Extraneus

Foo Bar might show up to tell us the tape isn't actually 40-minutes long, but 40.13 or 39.79, and that we should be precise.

Jim Eagle

KaKa,

You really have no idea how stupid your statement sounded especially since you have no understanding of military tactics. My God, go away and never come back until you know what the hell you are talking about. Surge is a common term never dependent on geography, the enemy, the situation or the topography or even the eventual deployment tactics. It means augmentation of force, period. It does not mean that it is being applied strategically and tactically the same in Afghanistan as in Iraq.

My lord, you have a master's in what? Sociology? Then stick to the surge in teen-age pregnancy or the increase in food stamps but don't embarrass yourself discussing national security or military matters. Its very unbecoming.

hrtshpdbox

I think that's what everyone's thinking, or hoping. If "the accent, the anger, etc." is really over the top, it could get interesting.

Sue

I thought she was being facetious.

C.R.

That ad is wonderful DOT.

Extraneus

JiB ♥ KK.

hrtshpdbox

My God, go away and never come back until you know what the hell you are talking about.
C'mon Jack, everyone knows the "Surge" was patented by Sun Tzu in 500 B.C., that it consists of defined maneuvers that NFL teams utilize in the onsides kick, and that it always works. I blame Bush for not thinking of using it earlier; all he had to do was shout out "Surge, stat!" and the war could've been won in the first week!

Porchlight

This tape and Romney's 47% tape in context, for when the inevitable false equivalence is drawn by the left:

1. Obama is selling "you're a helpless victim" to his voters. (2007 tape)

2. Romney is pointing out that 47% of voters are buying what Obama's selling. (2012 tape)

That's it. That's all anyone has to reply in response.

Sue

Sheppard is not there today. Bill Hemmer filling in. Would love it if it was permanent.

Ranger

I thought she was being facetious.

Me too. And, ironcily, does more to hurt Obama than help him, because she was basically stating Obama's view of the issue, thus proving he's incompetent in issues of national secutiry.

Remember, this was not the "surge" the military wanted. It was Obama's plan all the way.

Of course, Obama's thinking about the surge was just as simplistic as his thinking about anything else. To him it is all "structural factors" and if you just push the right buttons, everyhing will happen as it "should."

Sara

An utterly imbecilic statement, but moot in any event: it is over and we have lost. Our loss was assured when Obama, in announcing his Failed Surge, could not refrain from announcing our withdrawal date at the same time. He did that for no reason whatsoever other than to mollify his leftist base.

He has the blood of 1,600 fine men on his filthy hands. God damn his soul.

I word of reminder. It is always the goal of the left to besmirch, belittle, and at all cost, paint our military as losers. They did it in the '60s and '70s, then Reagan put a stop to it. With alot of help from a President "I despise the military" Clinton, we were headed that way again with Gore or Kerry, but W got in the way. Now Obama and his cowardly minions are calling on all those old '60s peaceniks to lead a new generation down the same cowardly and unpatriotic path. And the vintage media is more than willing to shout from the rooftops loser loser loser.

I posted a link the other day that was 100% ignored. Our Pentagon is telling our brave soldiers that it is their fault they are getting killed by those they are supposed to be training and/or working together with. It is all their fault for not being sensitive enough to the religious feelings and therefore they should expect to be killed.

Kind of smacks of Winter Soldier, Genghis Khan territory, doncha think?

maryrose

Please don't call her KK. That is my godchild's nickname and she is a wonderful young woman. Just say Katty.which is what most of her comments are.

Extraneus

Is that how he spells his name? I always thought it was Shepherd, which I and my dog both took to be an insult.

Jane - Mock the Media!

I have no doubt that Obama - and his best buddy Holder have always thought that way about black people. They are 2 of the most racist people on the planet.

Gee Kathy, are you admitting the problem in the CIC? You go girl!

hrtshpdbox

Is that how he spells his name? I always thought it was Shepherd, which I and my dog both took to be an insult.

What made you decide to name your dog Shepherd?

narciso

Remember he was opposed to the 'surge' precisely because it would stand in the way, of a retreat from Iraq, much as additional revenue from capital
gains tax cuts, might yield more revenue, but it would be against 'fairness'

http://freebeacon.com/nyt-ignores-ties-to-obama-in-romney-hit-piece/

Some military experience is helpful in a candidate. Clinton and Obama were both bad presidents because they never understood or liked the military.

Sue

It's how kindle spelled it and I didn't care enough to check if he spells it that way or not.

1. Obama is selling "you're a helpless victim" to his voters. (2007 tape)

Hey! What about this video:

David Burge ‏@iowahawkblog
Can you imagine the field day the media would have if, say, Obama partied under an 18' tower of champagne with Jay-Z amid 8.2% unemployment?

DebinNC

Obama's right about too many of the black underclass lacking basic skills. How many grew up with models going to work on time, dressed properly, etc. It's the "white supremacy" shtick Wright constantly spews that will hurt BOzo if that's what he's claiming on the tape.

More details about the tape are linked at The Corner including a transcript of the prepared remarks and a contemporaneous USA Today article on the speech. LUN

Quote from the latter:
"The Rev. Robert Abbott, pastor of the Holy Trinity Baptist Church in Amityville, N.Y., said Obama connects with black audiences because of the preacher's style he uses when addressing them."

I was hoping the tape would have been an expansion of this:

Here's that Selma speech...also from 2007, where Obama lies about his parents meeting because of the Selma marches & he lies about his father being brought to the US by Kennedy. Obama uses the same phony urban black accent & banter.
Maybe it's a Hawaiian accent? Not sure??

Stephanie

Obama's right about too many of the black underclass lacking basic skills.

Maybe if they taught a course in high school about how to dress properly, go to work on time, manage finances, have consideration for your fellow workers and how to do those things that will get you ahead in life instead of some of the other crap...

Who are we fooling? The administrators would be ridiculed for undermining black culture.

How would the NEA handle this?

Ebonics v Business English - a primer on the evils of the white power structure and their attempts to subvert black culture.

Dress for Success - a primer on the evils of the white power structure and their attempts to subvert black culture.

How to manage your money - a primer on the evils of the white power structure and their attempts to subvert black culture.

Janet

Oops...Selma speech.

Sara

How many grew up with models going to work on time, dressed properly, etc.

I worked as a volunteer for some program my employer had to do outreach to non-violent women offenders who were about to be released from jail or who were eligible for work release, if they only had a job to go to.

The program included getting office suitable clothing of good quality donated, as well as accessories and shoes. And also seminars at the jail on dressing for a job interview, proper etiquette expected in an office setting, filling out a legible application and how to come up with some experience when your only work experience to that point was being a teenage prostitute, and other things along similar lines.

narciso

Who knows, Janet, like Costanza he believes his own lies, about Selma, the Mooney mission, et al.

Soylent Red

"The Rev. Robert Abbott, pastor of the Holy Trinity Baptist Church in Amityville, N.Y., said Obama connects with black audiences because of the preacher's style he uses when addressing them."

I'm just damned concerned about "duh baybuh wit duh bullet in his arm."

God I hate that jive ass huckster voice.

Like I said, unless there is some mention of white devils or reparation payments, this video is a total meh.

Janet

That Selma tape should be BIG news. 2 outright provable lies. No digging, no theories....just lies. The video is even proudly posted by some lib group.
2007 must have been a big year for him to go around spinning lies in his best jive voice.

Jim Eagle

Interesting discussion on race has just been initiated.

When, pray tell, did the breakup of the traditional homogenous Black family begin? The Depression under FDR (D), WW2 under FDR (D), post WW2 under Truman (D), Post Korean War under Eisenhower (R), Camelot under JFK (D) or Great Society under LBJ (D).

It ain't Nixon or Ford because the riots and dependency proceed them by years. It was the Great Society with the Dems trying like hell to make everything equal without the concept of black power or even Obama's admonitions on how to dress for success.

Danube of Thought

Unless it airs in a lot ofplaces besides Hannity, it's meh squared. Only the converted tune him in.

Kathy Kattenburg

You're right, Danube. We should have told the Taliban we were staying in Afghanistan forever. That would have made the Afghan army self- sufficient and cooperative, and the Afghan people would have loved us for it. Americans would have stopped grumbling about the war too, if they'd only been reassured we we were never leaving Afghanistan.

And Jack Is Back: I know what surge means. And again I say that if sending more troops worked in Iraq it could work in Afghanistan. You can win a war by increasing troop levels in ANY country. In Afghanistan you just tweak the surge so it works in impassable mountain wilderness with harsh extremes of climate against a people who have thousands of years of experience fighting off invaders in a country with no history of centralized. government or successful contact with foreigners.

DebinNC

I recently transcribed of interview of an elderly black man who was a child in Waycross, GA in the 1940s-50s. He said his first experience with prejudice was his application to UGA around 1958 being turned down. His interactions with white folks had always been so amiable that he had no idea, so he claimed, that UGA wouldn't admit him. His father owned a shoe shop, a laundromat, and several other small businesses. Two of his uncles were medical doctors. He'd grown up interacting with white customers, and according to him everyone got along just great. Jim Crow laws were evil, but the black community was more vibrant and admirable back then imo. There was no lack of worthy role models.

Stephanie

Is the war on white picket fences in the suburbs with mom cooking, the kids playing in the yard and dad working for the family part and parcel of the decline of black family structure?

Can't have whitey as the role model for black America is the reasoning behind having a Black History month, isn't it?

Dave (in MA)

Our kind host has provided us with a new thread.

Soylent Red

Maybe he's in a rubber room somewhere, chanting "Get off it" over and over.

Since we're talking about Shep, it's possible he's in a rubber suit somewhere chanting, "Get on it" over and over.

Threadkiller

I would be more inclined to believe Shemp is in a room with Anderson Cooper screaming "Get it off!"

Is there a rubber?
