So Bell is the Jeremiah Wright of academia? There's no other connection, they're not friends or lovers? This is what is going to take down Obama?

"The Jeremiah Wright of academia." lol!

Vulcans would not be on Hannity. Logic dictates it must be a Romulan.
 
2012-03-07 09:11:23 PM  
Hannity has gone insane tonight.
 
2012-03-07 09:11:45 PM  
I can't watch much more.

Also, why is Michelle Trachenberg's nerdy brother from Euro Trip on this show?

You'd think after it failed in 2008 they'd have the smarts not to try the same thing and fail again.
 
2012-03-07 09:13:24 PM  
I... you know, this is...

They really lost their collective minds when we elected a black president. It's incredible. They mentally cannot handle the idea that a black person r uns the country.

I usually consider this slightly hyperbolic, but nope. If this is controversial, that's how these people think.

Dr. Mojo PhD: Troy McClure: Hannity just said this video has been suppressed.

You expect any of their audience to watch PBS? When was the last time Bob Ross taught you how to drag a black guy to death behind a pick-up truck?


Boom! FATALITY!

IamTomJoad: How far does this go in shooting down the talking point of the birthers that no one recalls going to school with Obama?


They'll be back at that one when they forget they watched this video.

Dr. Mojo PhD: Krymson Tyde: Who is that Vulcan on Hannity?

That's why I was confused, is he a rebel? Is he mentally I'll? What?

Occam's razor dictates your explanation is correct.
 
2012-03-07 09:15:18 PM  
HAHA. They can't even fill up a full hour with this derp. Coming up, 2 women discussing the double standard of Bill Mahar donating money to a PAC. Oh man, this would be amusing if I didn't realize that there's a bunch of people that take this crap seriously.
 
2012-03-07 09:15:24 PM  
So I should be outraged about...?
 
2012-03-07 09:15:29 PM  
So... the Republican strategy continues to be "attempt to tear down opponents" instead of telling us about their accomplishments. Of course... they don't have any recent accomplishments... so... I can kind of see why they're taking the route they are. However, it isn't impressing me in any kind of good way... in fact, it's making Republicans look worse.

Also... there was nothing I found offensive in that video. I highly doubt that I would find anything offensive in any of the "edited" parts either.

I wish they could just face the fact that they have nobody that can beat Obama without some serious cheating (vote fraud and the like) going on. Obama isn't perfect, but the Republicans have offered nothing but previous Presidential run failures and complete nutjobs. They brought nobody to the table of any quality and they have no beneficial accomplishments (they did manage to accomplish hurting the country quite a few times over the last few years, but that isn't exactly something to boast about) to run on.

Trouble is... I think Republicans feel like they're on a sinking ship and with their ideology, they just want to drag everyone else down with them.

Lovers. They hug in the newly revealed suppressed portion of the tape.
Seriously. That's the suppressed part.

/no lovers allegation, tho.
 
2012-03-07 09:15:39 PM  
This just in. Young collegian admires one of his his professors. A video that has been available for years is compared to an edited portion of that video.
Because socialism.

Wow, 0bama decided to ruin a dead man's legacy by not being scarier and blacker in the dead man's last work? WTF is this guy's problem?

That was it?

cameroncrazy1984: badhatharry: How is a video of a public speech just now being discovered? It's very strange hiding stuff like this.

It was apparently on PBS in 2008.


Well that explains how nobody ever saw it until now.
 
2012-03-07 09:16:52 PM  
In what way is this a "Hannity Exclusive"?
 
2012-03-07 09:17:11 PM  
This is the smoking gun that proves... that Obama doesn't need a teleprompter, because he was a good public speaker even in college? Uh...
 
2012-03-07 09:17:11 PM  

ordinarysteve: cryinoutloud: Magic_Button: MADTV did a spoof that was closer to the truth where seconds after being told they whip open the box and start hammering the button asking if they push it more then once do they get more money and every one in the room pushes it with the "mysterious stranger " shouting Stop stop you're breaking it .

I don't know if I actually saw that (I might have, I can see it in my head perfectly) but that made me laugh like hell.

Link (new window)
Here's a spoof of it by Picnicface. I didn't know about the MADTV one but this one is pretty damn hilarious



Thank you that was good .. hurt my self laughing

lord thundering Jesus tap-dancing on a cracker. WTF seriously. I understand going all in on the farking retardation but these guys are putting all their chips on the on the insanity table and shiatting in their own hands and betting that also.
 
2012-03-07 09:17:54 PM  
I hope that down in Hell right now, a demon is torturing Breitbart by showing him how little people care about his "smoking gun" tape.
 
2012-03-07 09:18:31 PM  
Holy carp!? You mean I can't trust an over-hyped, derpity-doo story on Breitbart.com? Jeez, thanks Obama. :(

/Can't wait for the right-wing fail from this.

//I believe in Dr. Mojo PhD. Mojo is wise. Control the tone. Choose the words in your argument carefully.
 
2012-03-07 09:18:36 PM  
Love it. We see Obama hug a guy but because we couldn't HEAR HIM say "open your heart to this guy" we couldn't know for sure that he liked him.
 
2012-03-07 09:18:41 PM  

JerseyTim: In what way is this a "Hannity Exclusive"?


In the same way that the media has been suppressing this video. Which is to say, not at all.
 
2012-03-07 09:18:50 PM  
Here's an interesting thought:

The right-wing derposphere brought out the full guns in 2008: he's black, he knows black radicals, he's a socialist, he sympathizes with terrorists, he's Kenyan, he's not American, he's Muslim, he's a racist, he hates white people, etc.....

So what happens when the Democrats run a regular old white, America, handsome, Christian candidate in 2016? They literally threw every last bit of putrid "muslim kenyan foreigner" crap at their viewers in 2008, and he STILL got elected.

No other show has Hannity desperately trying to make this into something?
 
2012-03-07 09:20:08 PM  
Oh, for chrissake, they just tried to bring up the "black panther case."

Did they even show the whole video?

/as soon as American Idol is over and the girl quits hogging the TV I intend to watch the full thing on the PBS site

Pretty rude of 1991 Obama to desecrate the legacy of that man by not acting like the secrut Muslin terrorist hitler we know he mus truly be

I think that one was a two parter.

well good for him. heckuva speaker: nuanced, humor, conviction, from the heart.

i was on a heavy acid trip in '91

have you ever really looked at your hand? really looked at it?

Hannity has a message board, I know I was also surprised. Even his fans, Greggy, Dougie and the othe Hitler youth are disappoint.

They are saying "smoking gun" a lot. I guess they want to watch "Worlds Dumbest"?
 
2012-03-07 09:22:06 PM  
If this video results in another surge of people standing on street corners and shouting REDISTRIBUTIONERIST, then I'm all for its full release.

The party faithful have repeatedly connected Obama to leftists that they see as worse than Bin Laden, while the rest of the country asks "who?" and then stops listening halfway through the explanation. People like Breitbart think they're exposing a huge presidential scandal, but what they're really doing is tricking their own side into soundling like incoherent conspiracy theorists.
 
2012-03-07 09:22:16 PM  
I guess I was expecting this "big news" to be a lame video of some sort. I just honestly thought it would be at least kind of interesting, like President Obama getting fired up and yelling about affirmative action or MLK or something. Instead this is a video of him praising his professor and giving him a hug.

The fact that the right sees this and thinks 'controversy' betrays way more about their world-view than it does about President Obama's.
 
2012-03-07 09:22:31 PM  
Hannity just dropped an ACORN-Alinsky-Ayers mega combo.
 
2012-03-07 09:23:02 PM  
WAIT, WAIT, HOLD UP YOU GUYS.

DID YOU REALIZE THE PRESIDENT IS AFRICAN-AMERICAN?

I DID NOT KNOW THIS UNTIL NOW. BUT I SAW A VIDEO, WHERE IT IS REVEALED THAT HE IS, INDISPUTABLY, A BLACK GUY! AND HE ATTENDED A HIGHLY REGARDED INSTITUTION OF HIGHER EDUCATION!

HE ALSO SAYS NICE THINGS IN THIS VIDEO, ABOUT OTHER AFRICAN-AMERICAN INDIVIDUALS!

OH

MY

GOD

Indeed. I mean they kinda sorta had something on him with the Jeremiah Wright "God Damn America" stuff, and it forced Obama to sever his ties with Wright publicly. That's the only thing they've thus far come up with that actually stuck. The dude is squeaky clean, and I don't know of any other politicians who are in that category, Democrat or Republican.
