anyone else picking up the tone in his voice near the beginning, that he's trying to sound more, well, urban?
I got more from reading the comments about the video, than I will ever get from seeing the video, if I ever develop the stomach for it.
First he rhapsodizes about a baby miraculously surviving a gunshot wound - a senseless but deliberate act of violence from one of his worthless "sons", and saved by a man who gave enough of a d@mn to get off his @$$ and go to medical school - then in a breathtaking inversion of reality, claims that "da commun-a-tee" is still suffering from a bullet that no-one bothered to remove. Do we need a clearer declaration of the liberal disconnect from reality? Society (i.e. raciss whites) is to blame for the riots, to blame for the violence, and never EVER is anyone else to blame. No personal responsibility whatsoever will be tolerated.
He is either high or drunk. Possibly both. When Hannity does the split screen it's really obvious. Hard to believe this imposter is running the show.
His talking points at 7-10 minutes about the LA riots are exactly the same as what he's said about the Middle East riots!!!
Despair leads to violence. It's been building up and then set off by an event. It's understandable, but it doesn't excuse your behavior.
Rioters vs Terrorists! OMG, he doesn't know the difference.
Meh. It's a politician looking more and more like he's a bad politician. Methinks most of us knew he was bad before he started, so I'm not sure this proves much, other than the fact he's a bigger phony than we knew. I can't see this changing a lot of folks minds, though. He's already wrap up the Loon Vote, as well as the dullard constituency, so November can't come soon enough for me.
He is a robot.
With a flip of a switch he becomes ethnic then he becomes main stream.
We all must pray that God saves America. We cannot depend on the people.
Somebody needs to tell Obama that blacks make up only 12% of the population, and that he had 98% of them at hello...
I couldn't put my finger on why so many people are reporting through the blogosphere that there are no Obama signs in their neighborhoods, especially people who live in liberal areas (like I do), but take heart people. I think I figured it out. That deafening silence in our neighborhoods -- the lack of Obama signs, no one talking politics in public at church or schools or work like they did when they were all on fire for Obama -- that's the sound of people who have already written Obama off -- and cannot bring themselves to say they're going to vote for the other guy.
It's like what happens at the end of a home football game when the crowd realizes their team is not going to win... silence, as it dawns on them, it's over.
Interesting. I, too, have noticed the dearth of political signs for EITHER candidate in my neighborhood. A lot of Republicans around here, myself included, but no one seems to be saying much about either of them. I live in a neighborhood just a couple miles from Romney's birthplace. I did donate to Romney's campaign for a bumper sticker but never got it. His website is not so great.
not to mention they're polling people with land lines whose only source of news is Brian Williams, because they're still watching tv's with rabbit ears...
Yes! Check out this article which very much supports what you're saying and gives additional info about how bad the polling is right now -- and it really has very little to do with the oversampling of democrats, which is yet another reason why the polls are so bad:
I was at Fox Nation on a thread with this topic. The trolls own the thread the regulars like me seam to have left. The thebertmanlives crew are cloning and stealing names.
Unsurprising. Disgustingly unsurprising.
The press always goes out of its way to avoid spelling in dialect when Obama speaks.
You'll notice they don't write things he says, like "bebeh" for "baby." And neither would I. It's a common courtesy typically extended by reporters to almost anyone who speaks in public. Same, too with the casual interruptions in speech or interjections clearly not intended as speech (for example, every single "uh," "err," and "um," ever uttered by Obama). You'll notice if he says, "A-ight," it gets spelled as "all right."
But whenever Sara Palin speaks, they go out of their way to make sure they type out every inflection and dropped 'g' so they can pretend that it means she's stupid. Every interrupted sentence fragment (as in a conversation) gets transcribed exactly, as if she were in fact too stupid to complete a sentence. She ends up in print like a character from Huck Finn.
This explains why they hid this video from us. The media cannot be trusted.
I didn't watch the full 40 minutes, just the first couple clips in Daily Caller's article. What struck me is how cold Obama was at throwing his pastor under the bus. I can see why Jeremiah Wright was offended.
The other thing that stood out is the contrast between Obama expressing his faith in Jesus Christ in these clips and the statements he has made about not slandering the prophet and that we will never be at war with islam. I wish someone would do a youtube showing those differences.
There is an absolute stark difference in character between Mitt Romney and Obama.
I look forward to the debate.
I will be so glad when this POS is gone. I am so sick and tired of everything being about race. I don't view things that way because we are all Americans and we should all have the same requirements and the same general opportunities. No laws should favor one race over another and jobs should not be given to people to meet racial quotas. Businesses should not be required to contract work out to minority businesses regardless of ability or competence.
That said, I am also sick of the left blaming us for things they do. He mentioned Bush's incompetence after Hurricane Katrina, and that lie has been accepted by the general public. Bush could not move in to the state until Blanco requested him to. He tried to get her to send in the request, and she said no. Who was that jerk that refused to bus people out because he wasn't going to use yellow school busses, and he wanted Greyhounds? Point is, Bush was ready and Blanco gave him the finger initially. When everything went to he!!, the left started blaming Bush. They didn't even have an evacuation plan.
There's one reason the blame easily gets shifted to Republicans. A liberal media that buries the truth and points the finger at Republicans every single time without fail. Just like they will blame Republicans for the jobs, because they refused to sign Obama's jobs bill. Never mind that the jobs bill was just a slush fund for liberal front groups. MSM, tell the truth!!
I hear his "black" accent in this video. I can't listen to him longer than a half minute. He's a fake, a fraud and a phony. I pray tonight and I hope others will join me, that Romney will finally get through to voters who do not see obama yet for who he really is during the debate. At least nail him on his policy failures!
I don't know if I can watch the debates or not since I can't stand to listen to him and have barely glanced his way during the past four years. Fake, phony to the core.
Ah, I was wondering if it was just my imagination that Obama was pooring on the fake voice. Hillary did it, too. The lengths they go to get people's votes.
Because they were white? Um, no...that's not it. Because they were wearing boy scout uniforms? Oh, wait....no. They had billy clubs. Oh, I got it! Because they were politely greeting voters with candy and a smile? Crap, that's not it, either.
I give up. Why did Holder drop the case?
Lol, in all seriousness it was a blatant move on his part that shows how political and race oriented he has made his job.
Maybe because he was a thug once. Check out the Afro.
"As college student, Eric Holder participated in ‘armed’ takeover of former Columbia University ROTC office"
Hell, I don't know. Video won't even work for me. Just a black rectangle. Maybe it's better that way.
I could only make it to the 15 min mark, but have seen the other clips. No new info for me, just confirmed, in his own words what we already knew.
What I found REALLY creepy was the start of his speech. I'll have to paraphrase, but will be pretty close. He basically said around the 2:min mark: I'm so grateful to be here today, I generally avoid speaking at ministers conferences because you have too many that make politicians look pale and uninspiring.......
Does that explain the narcisist in chief's phony cadence and the blatant racism? He had to even upstage the ministers there! Guess he was competing with who could ratchet up the hatred the best.
Rodney King - vs. Martin Luther King. Hum.... guess Rodney ratches up more hate.
Not only does O scare the crap out of me with what he has done to our country, but he really creeps me out.
Assume for a minute that the right had released a video that miscaricterized Obama's Amos & Andy accent. Now watch the one and only Obama utilize himself. RACIST
Sorry. can't stand to listen to this POS. I'll just listen to Rush and crew tomorrow for the rest of the story. I'm out.
Now I'm 6.5 min. through this comedy and O says it's a miracle this baby survived the murderous intentions of a gunman. Hey Barak, what would you call it if a baby survives the murderous intentions of its own mother and the abortion doctor? What the f*** is the difference?!!! Loss for words here!
I Listened to the whole thing. I didn't really learn anything new, from my point of view, since I wasn't a fan of his before this and didn't vote for him the first time, but it does drive two points home. The MSM has and is in the tank for Obama. The second point is, that he pushes and has pushed for more government programs, that we as taxpayers can't afford. At some point the money will run out, we can not buy (print) our way out of this mess.
Liberals tell me that printing money has no effect and the debt doesn't mean anything. Yeah, that's how dumb many of them are.
My few liberal friends (I live in Kern county out in California) more right leaning views out here, but what I find funny when they talk about the debt, they think it will magically go away. So agreed they're dumb.
Right, and these are the people Obama is fooling into supporting him. The guy just as well eat his own leg off.
One guy told me they can just print more money, so what's the big deal? I just told him it's a big deal because his dollar will be worth 50 cents in the very near future. He didn't really understand what I meant.
I have just watched exactly one minute of this speech, and what is obvious to me, is the attempt to sound "authentic". Lets just see what else i can detect.
I wonder why this crap video did not surface during the 2008 campaign. What a POS and a disgrace to the presidency.
The article at DC is very interesting. When Obama went off script and states it plainly, one wonders when he saw a lack of media scrutiny that his desire to be president would easily become reality.
The slanderous language, the out right fabrication of lies of a sitting senator should have been a huge red flag. Yet, Clinton did not have this.
I think that the best ad for this is to contrast his shout out to his pastor and his remarks throwing him under the bus. That would be a most excellent demonstration of a walking contradiction.
Watched most of it; all I could tolerate. Nothing surprised me, even the racism; however, the accent was a poor choice because it made him sound like a thug. Most I ever heard him mention God which showed me he will even use the Lord for political purposes.
