Obama’s Race Based Hate Speech Isn’t Really News

  Bookmark and Share  As the sun set on our nation last night, an exclusive video unearthed by Daily Caller Editor-In-Chief Tucker Carlson was aired on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity”.  It was a video of a speech being delivered by then Senator Barack Obama back in 2007.  In it, Senator Obama who was campaigning in a tough race against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination, addresses a predominantly African-American audience which he tries to fire up by essentially telling them that the federal government hates black people.  Of course the President didn’t use those exact words.  Instead he painted a picture of a federal government that doesn’t care as much about minorities as it does for other people.

The President made his charge in this speech by trying to claim that that the federal government is unwilling to help minorities who are victims of disasters such as those in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina back in 2005 (see video of the remarks below).

And while he did not exactly say that the federal government is  a bigoted extension of the white man, he tried to explain that survivors of Sept. 11 and Hurricane Andrew received generous amounts of aid while residents of majority-black New  Orleans did not because according to him, the federal government considers those victims in Florida and New York to be “part of the American  family” but it does not considers the minorities of New Orleans to be “family”.

He reached that conclusion by falsely stating that the federal government refused to issue the same fund-matching waiver to the mostly minority communities torn apart by Katrina Katrina that were offered to more affluent and caucasian communities such as the one in Manhattan which was destroyed during the attacks of 9/11 on the Twin Towers.  In addition to being irresponsibly inflammatory, the charge was also false.  As it turns out, the federal government did issue the same fund-matching waiver to Katrina-torn regions that it offered to the victims of other disasters throughout the nation.

As seen in the clip below, Tucker Carlson sums the video up probably better than anyone else.  According to him, Obama’s words were “shocking”, “divisive”, “demagogic”, and “untrue”.

Since the initial reporting of the story, conservative activists have been a buzz. For some, like Tucker Carlson, the story has the makings of that oft mentioned “October surprise” that every campaign hopes to avoid but prays to see their rival’s campaign have to figure out how to recover from.  The problem is that this conservative activist doesn’t see it that way.  Unfortunately, I don’t believe this speech will have any impact on the election.

While the video most certainly shows the soon to be President lying and while it also reveals him to be speaking in what is described as a highly “urbanized African-American accent” which is undeniably uncharacteristic of Barack Obama, what the video does not do is present anything new to us.

We have already seen President Obama launch into his chameleon-like ethnic accents that are designed to endear him to the audiences he addresses.  It is practically a standard operating procedure for the Obama-Biden campaign.  It was perhaps best displayed back in August when Vice President Biden stood before another predominantly black audience in Danville, Va. and shouted with an exaggerated Southern drawl… “They’re going to put y’all back in chains.”

This latest Obama video also does not make news by revealing to us that President Obama is a liar.  Many of us already know that President Obama lies. We know that he lies straight to our faces.  Recent events in Benghazi have made that more than obvious.

Furthermore; we  also know by now that President Obama is anything but a uniter.  We have long understood that this President has built his entire political career on a divide and conquer strategy.  And it has long been understood that this President’s entire reelection effort is based on  a class warfare strategy designed to pit some against others.

If there is anything worth reporting here it is that Mitt Romney raised this very issue back in August while speaking at a rally in Chillicothe, Ohio.  It was there that Romney first told us the following;

“Over the last four years, this president has pushed Republicans and Democrats about as far apart as they can go. And now he and his allies are pushing us all even further apart by dividing us into groups. He demonizes some. He panders to others,” Romney said. “His campaign strategy is to smash America apart and then try to cobble together 51% of the pieces.”

He then added;

“Mr. President, take your campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago, and let us get about rebuilding and reuniting America.”

So I repeat… President Obama’s hate filled, lies in this speech are nothing new and as such, nothing new will come from this latest example of his deceitful, race baiting tactics and divisive political tendencies.  The truth is that the 47% of the electorate that opposes Barack Obama knew this about him long ago.  So this video will not change their votes.   The other 47% knows Obama is a divisive liar but they refuse to admit it.  So those Obama supporters will also not be changing their vote because of this video.

As for the remaining 6% who describe themselves as undecided, they will be seeing this video through the filter of a  primarily pro-Obama, biased media that will excuse the President’s comments away.  As they get fed the liberal spin on the President remarks, these six percent who claim to be undecided but whom I see as simply slow, dazed, and confused , will accept the liberal narrative given to them.  As such, most of these “indecisive” voters will never realize how much the President’s past words undermine his attempts to portray himself as a unifying force in American politics.  Because of the media’s biases, this swayable six percent of the electorate will probably never allow themselves to accept the fact that President Obama is playing us all for fools.  They should, but they probably won’t.

Sarah Palin gives Gingrich the nod, as Romney returns to a script again to convince voters

Former Speaker Newt Gingrich’s bid to be the conservative alternative to Mitt Romney in the GOP race received a huge boost last night on the Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity show when saying, that she’d vote for Newt Gingrich in the South Carolina primary in order “to keep this thing going.” The former Alaska governor’s latest wink and nod at the former House speaker comes just weeks after her husband Todd Palin openly endorsed the former speaker.

Palin said, “Newt came out just like South Carolina’s own Smokin’ Joe Frazier. He came out there swinging’, talking about work, talking about jobs and work ethic, and how government needs to get out of the way in order for all Americans to have a sense of opportunity to work. And I think that’s what a lot of voters have been craving to hear,” she said.

Palin said she was happy to see the remaining GOP candidates continue to mix it up in the televised forums. “Because iron sharpens iron. Steel sharpens steel. These guys are getting better in their debates. They’re getting more concise. They’re getting more grounded in what their beliefs are and articulating what their ideas are to get the country back on the right track.”

She praised all of the candidates’ performances Monday although didn’t mention Ron Paul or Mitt Romney by name expressly when commenting on Monday’s South Carolina debate.

When asked if she was ready to make a public endorsement, Palin said she would only say what she would do if she were a South Carolina voter.

“I’d vote for Newt and I would want this to continue, more debates, more vetting of candidates. Because we know the mistake made in our country four years ago was having a candidate that was not vetted to the degree that he should have been,” she said.

Palin, the GOP vice presidential nominee in 2008, was referring to President Obama, who took part in well over a dozen candidate debates, including a handful one-on-one against Hillary Clinton.

Fox News host Sean Hannity then asked Ms. Palin to assess the popular notion that Mr. Gingrich and the other remaining candidates are battling to attract conservative Republicans against the front running candidate Mitt Romney.

The former Republican vice presidential candidate called Mr. Romney the “more moderate” candidate and was critical of the media for popularizing the notion that it is “inevitable” that Mr. Romney will eventually win the Republican nomination in 2012.

Speaker Gingrich who now has become involved in a back and forth with White House Spokesman  Jay Carney over his “Food Stamp President” comments on Monday will no doubt openly embrace such a vote of support ahead of this Saturday’s South Carolina GOP primary.

It is widely accepted that Palin and Gingrich are outside the Republican Party establishment circle due to their support of the Tea-Party movement and more conservative stances.

Gingrich’s performance on Monday, which has drawn widespread acclaim from far and wide, appears to have worried Team Romney who today, released two new negative web videos, unleashed attacking surrogates and even went after the former House speaker himself.

A Team Romney source said on Wednesday that the attacks on Gingrich are coming because he is “the one left who can go the longest.” The truth is, if Mitt Romney can’t win over the GOP support in person or through the live debates, one has to worry how he would perform in a general election campaign trail, when even the slightest mis-step could have dire consequences for any potential nominee.

The huge war-chest and most negative of ads in the campaign may win him the primary however, the question everyone has to ask is, will Romney be able to take on President Obama head to head on the campaign trail, and win over independent voters. One must have serious reservations when Romney has no script or safe interview environment to protect him.

Responding to Romney’s attack ads, an independent group allied with Gingrich released its own Internet ad, showing computer-animated Obama annihilating his Romney counterpart in a debate by detailing some of his position changes on issues dear to conservatives.

“I agreed with Governor Romney on many things, but this presidential candidate Romney? I don’t even know the guy,” the mock Obama says. “Then again, he doesn’t seem to know himself.”

Thursday night will see a crucial CNN debate take place which could very well swing the outcome of Saturday’s decisive primary race.

Nikki Haley Endorses Mitt Romney for President

Bookmark and Share   Several weeks ago, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley declared to a reporter that she would be endorsing a businessman for President.  At the time that could have really only one of two people……Herman Cain and Mitt Romney.  But seeing as how Mitt Romney was one of those people who came out early in 2010 and endorsed Nikki Haley for Governor, then subsequently worked hard for her in the state, odds were that she did not mean Herman Cain.

Today, that was confirmed.

In an early morning interview on Fox News, the popular Governor of the increasingly important early primary state made it official and declared her support for Mitt Romney for President.

In her endorsement, Haley praised Romney as being a business leader who understands the economy, knows how to create jobs, and has the vision and ability to turn our nation around.  Governor Haley said that while no candidate is perfect, Romney happens to be the best person for the times we are in.

The endorsement is probably the most significant one to be bestowed upon any of the Republican presidential candidates to date and deals a pretty big blow to his competitors, especially frontrunner Newt Gingrich.

In addition to being a favorite influential figure within the TEA movement, a group of people Romney needs help with, Nikki Haley is a very popular Governor of the Palmetto State and in addition to her giving Romney some TEA Party credentials, her support gives Mitt Romney unprecedented access to the state Party organization of South Carolina.  While Haley’s endorsement of Romney does not constitute an endorsement by the South Carolina G.O.P. or any of its county organizations, it does essentially put the Governor’s controlling share of the state Party apparatus behind Romney.  Such organizational support will help make a big difference on primary day in South Carolina.

Currently, South Carolina is where Newt Gingrich has his largest campaign organization.  it is there that Newt is hoping to pull off a win that will bring clarity to any mottled decision that comes out of Iowa and New Hampshire and catapult Newt to a win in Florida and the upper hand in the nomination process.

While this is certainly not out of the question, Haley’s endorsement of Mitt Romney did just make the question mark much bolder.

One thing this endorsement certainly does though is show how the early strategic groundwork of Mitt Romney’s long campaign for president is beginning to pay off.  In the year’s leading up to this year’s election, Romney had been criscrossing the country to support candidates all over on the state and county level in their own election and reelection efforts

So this endorsement comes as no surprise to Romney. It has been known that it was coming for more than a year now.  It is an endorsement that Romney planned for long ago when he supported Nikki Haley in her primary contest for the gubernatorial nomination and when his PAC, Free and Strong America PAC donated to Haley’s campaign.  It was all a part of a Romney strategy that was created long ago.

What is interesting though is the timing of the endorsement.

It comes on the heels of last night’s Republican debate in which Newt Gingrich seemed to have stolen the thunder.  Having Haley endorse him this morning was designed to try to take some of that thunder back.
