Shadowknight: The Dreaded Rear Admiral: themindiswatching: Has Drudge done anything useful since the Clinton thing in the 90s?



This was a useful October Surprise four years ago... just the complete opposite of what they were going for.

That crazy biatch... I hope she still gets recognized.


That whole episode was insane, even just on Fark. With all the users who jerkassly defended her, maybe a quarter of them came back in the followup thread that showed that she was a liar.
 
2012-10-03 08:29:44 AM
Ha, what did they think of Romney talking shiat about poor people? Do they disagree with what Obama said? It's true.
 
2012-10-03 08:29:46 AM

LectertheChef: The only people dumb enough to push this shiat were Drudge, Carlson, and Hannity


And Charlie Rose on the CBS Morning Show today, aired as the 'October Surprise'. Both the Democratic and Republican spokesmen they interviewed refused to bite. Charlie didn't appear to take it well when it was pointed out CBS covered it extensively in 2007.
 
2012-10-03 08:30:20 AM
I love how Tucker Carlson was being interviewed with Hannity and he says the media, including himself WERE IN THE ROOM.
 
2012-10-03 08:30:30 AM
Gotta love the screen cap of Carlson looking like he's easing down on a huge dildo.
 
2012-10-03 08:31:18 AM
With this video from 2007 we will see the kind of President Obama will be...except we have been seeing it for 4 years.

Keep on derping Republicans.
 
2012-10-03 08:31:30 AM

shotglasss: This is a good video, showing Obama for what he is...a race pimp along the lines of Kanye West.

I do hope Romney references it tonight and gets people interested in it. You all know the liberal media isn't going to get within a few billion light years of this story.


Mitt wont mention this or any of the BS going around on RW blogs, you know why?

it's ridiculous to everyone who isn't in your little bubble. Mitt would be seen by the majority of voters the way most people see you, and that's not going to help his chances.
 
2012-10-03 08:34:11 AM

Mr. Coffee Nerves: This is an "October Surprise" roughly on par with coming to work the day after Trick-or-Treat Night and finding leftover candy in the break room.


Wouldn't that, technically, be a "November" surprise?
 
2012-10-03 08:36:23 AM
What is all this then?

(reads drudge report story)

Oh. MY. GOWD! I have been in a cave...on mars...with my fingers in my ears...for the last 5 years and had no idea Obama was black or president!

This.Changes. EVERYTHING!

/thanks, infromed etc
 
2012-10-03 08:50:49 AM

Obama's Coke Dealer_63: Wardrobe_Malfunction: Well that does it then. All those Hannity and Drudge fans who were about to vote for Obama are going to vote Republican now. What a game changer.

Yeah kinda like Romney's 47% comment that changed the minds of Fark fans.


Account created: 2012-10-01

I'm confused...I thought it was the Republicans telling Obama to stop running against Bush....?

This has been hidden from the American people. Fark liberals are apparently fine with that. Poor dumb bastards.

Speaking of hiding things from the American People, why won't Romney release his tax returns?
 
2012-10-03 08:57:41 AM
Nothing in the video is particularly bothersome. However, it does make it even clearer that he was lying when he said he didn't know what Wright was saying in his church and that when he finally did disown him, it was pure political expediency. They were very close, and he knew exactly what was going on. This doesn't affect my vote for him, obviously, but I'll still call out disingenuous bull shiat, even if it's my candidate.

Already saw the video and it wasn't of interest. If anything, it made me wonder about the Stafford (?) Law and why it was not applied unilaterally. Makes me wonder if it was applied to the people in Joplin and other places where they had natural disasters. If not, why not? Who made that decision? So if anything, it may point out another example of institutional racism or it may be nothing. Either way, I appreciate President Obama bringing it up. I didn't know about it until this was brought up. I think he was correct to question the application of that law.

According to Fox News and conservatives, helping poor black people after a natural disaster is racial warfare.

2012-10-03 09:05:59 AM

clark1: but the transcript was the prepared remarks, and he went off script on this video. here we see the real man.


Yeah, the real man said:

"Look at what happened in New Orleans and along the Gulf Coast when Katrina hit. People ask me whether I thought race was the reason the response was so slow. I said, 'No. This Administration was colorblind in its incompetence.' But everyone here knows the disaster and the poverty happened long before that hurricane hit. All the hurricane did was make bare what we ignore each and every day which is that there are whole sets of communities that are impoverished, that don't have meaningful opportunity, that don't have hope and they are forgotten. This disaster was a powerful metaphor for what's gone on for generations."


He's talking about poverty, not race.

But if you want to step up and defend the Bush Administration's response to Katrina, be my guest.

That's the story. The media works for the President. The President approved the "transcript" that was released. It was actually just the prepared speech. The actual speech was hidden from the public by the media.

whidbey: Yes Obama is a total radical and a threat to the future of democracy.

This is why he rules as a moderate from the political center-right.

I learn so much here.


He's also a socialist, but somehow the right-wing is pissed that he isn't doing more about the economy and gas prices. You'd think they would be happy that a socialist wasn't getting involved in our economy, but there you go.

I guess they want him to start nationalizing the oil companies.

Notabunny: That reminds me, what's Romney's plan for Afghanistan?


It's simple. You know that saying about a jazz musician being judged by the notes he didn't play?

Well, that's Romney. It's the plans he doesn't have that show what a great leader he is.

This must be why 0bamao Shakur Davis rammed through the Reparations And White Women For Every Black Male Act in his first ten days in power, followed by the Robert Mugabe Steal Everything White People Own Act. Mitt Romney is automatically president, Sarah Palin is Secretary of State, and Taxbama has to spend his days making spinach dip and sourdough bread bowls for GOP House caucus meetings.

You don't understand, this time the rest of America will finally see the President Obama only Republicans can see. For reals. Just you wait and see.

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

Oh, wait...that's been on YouTube since May 2008.

You wanna know who REALLY tied race to the situation in New Orleans?

That poverty has roots in a history of racial discrimination, which cut off generations from the opportunity of America. We have a duty to confront this poverty with bold action. So let us restore all that we have cherished from yesterday and let us rise above the legacy of inequality. When the streets are rebuilt, there should be many new businesses, including minority-owned businesses, along those streets.
- President George W. Bush, September 15, 2005.

so desperate

b-b-b-but Obama's destroying America, He's the worst president in history, his failed policies (can't even name one), and burdensome regulations (can't name one) are failed failures because he failed, why can't everyone see the truth?

this is why guys like you will be mad for years to come, your version of reality looks like a slurry of sour grapes and BS to most people and the best you can do to convince them is play victim and tout one flimsy non-story after another.
