In a previous post, Pasadena Phil made a comment about Andrew Breitbart’s speech at CPAC yesterday in which he said he had videos of Barack Obama from his college days that would serve as further evidence of his radical, leftist background.
Here’s what Breitbart had to say:
“I have videos, this election we’re going to vet him,” Breitbart disclosed to raucous applause. “We are going to vet him from his college days to show you why racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008.”
“The videos are going to come out, the narrative is going to come out, that Barack Obama met a bunch of silver ponytails in the 1980s, like Bill (Ayers) and Bernadine (Dohrn), who said one day we would have the presidency, and the rest of us slept as they plotted, and they plotted, and they plotted and they oversaw hundreds of millions of dollars in the Annenberg Challenge and they had real money, from real capitalists. Then they became communists. We got to work on that. That is a parenthesis. Barack Obama is a radical, we should not be afraid to say that! Okay? And Barack Obama was launched from Bill and Bernadine’s salon. I’ve been there.”
There’s one thing I think the left has learned, and it’s that Breitbart doesn’t bluff. So the only question now is when he’ll choose to make the videos public. I’m guessing the footage is nothing new to CBS, CNN, NBC, ABC, MSNBC and the New York Times. Mainstream outlets have been sitting on assorted Obama material for years, but to release it in 2008 would have been anathema to their aiding and abetting of the sales pitch for Hope & Change, and to release it now would expose their monumental negligence and willful failure to vet the candidate the first time around. Whatever is in Breitbart’s videos will probably end up reiterating that the mainstream media was derelict in its duty more than they will expose anything surprising about Barack Obama — little would shock anyone who has been paying attention beyond what the MSM has been spoon feeding America these past few years.
One positive for Obama fans: Breitbart’s videos of Obama in college will help put to rest rumors that he never even attended college:
