Yeah, that was pretty much a dud.
 
2012-10-03 09:27:56 AM
As if it would be sinful for a politician to acknowledge there still exist racial disparities in this country. Burn the truth teller!
 
2012-10-03 09:28:32 AM
The video ranks somewhere between "Eric Holder's high school afro" and "Michelle Obama saying 'kill Whitey'"

Wait...black people are angry that this happened?

Dear drudge:

The really ugly kid that smells like wee just turned you down for a date.

Funny how in retrospect it was Clinton who received the blowjob but Drudge who had the orgasm.

That didn't take long.

Okay, FINE, I'm switching my vote back to Obama...
 
2012-10-03 10:26:35 AM
I think the only way republicans can rally their base at this point is to hammer home the fact that the president is black.

FTFA: "Voters have to look at that video and have to make up their mind on that individually," Madden said, responding to a question on whether the video is relevant. "I think what's much morse important to this debate right now are the president's policies."

He is talking in code!

The sad thing is that Drudge has become irrelevant not because the public rose above him, but because the media sank to his level.

This is how I envision Romney with his "bombshell".

Drudge is still a thing? How can you trust a man who uses a deranged HTML template from 1995? Reading that site feels like reading a serial killer's diary

That .gif is the funniest thing I've seen all day, thanks.

Pffft. You can see through this woth your eyes closed.

"Obama's non-controversial video is not the focus, it is his policies...and by extention, lets all forget that whole 47% thing...please."

This is Mitt Romney taking the imaginary high road.

// everyone's on the bandwagon

2012-10-03 10:29:56 AM
is there a link to the video in question somewhere?
 
2012-10-03 10:29:56 AM
Fark Cons/Freepers are going to be upset.

Time to accuse the Romney campaign of trying to lose this thing.

The spin on this is beginning to make me wonder. It's no big deal. It's no big deal. IT'S NO BIG DEAL!

You are correct. Conservatives attempting to "spin" this release as "no big deal" is an interesting situation.

I dunno. What do you guys think? Some sort of code?

Drudge Bombshell Bombs?

Where's the banner headline and sirens?

Whar?!11!

Romney's part of the liberal msm!

You are correct. Conservatives attempting to "spin" this release as "no big deal" is an interesting situation.

"I think a lot of that is up to individual voters and whether they think it's relevant to the conversation we're having today."


That would be a Romney adviser essentially advising people to check out the video while at the same time attempting to appear above the fray.

Dammit, didn't hit refresh. Well played, sirrah!

I love that it was Hannity that called it a "bombshell" after he talked a few weeks ago about Romney's "47%" video being 'WAYYYYYYY back in May'.

Oh, come on. You know Romney would have just tossed that bomb on those cute duckies in the water without even thinking twice about it.

The story is now how lame, transparent, and coordinated conservative media propaganda is.
 
2012-10-03 10:41:19 AM
Was this the clip that questioned how much assistance NO was receiving after Katrina? That was a bombshell?

Even my racist grandmother knew NO was getting shafted.

Ohhh, could be but I don't know. All I've seen so far is the Think Progress and TPM takes on this. And of course the farklibs, who seem concerned. Very concerned.

They should be concerned. This is the moment where Romney takes an overwhelming lead in the polls, thanks to this bombshell.

I watched it last night and read the Freeper response.

Listening to Glenn Beck right now: "why would you release that video right now! its stupid! what about Libya and Fast and Furious investigations!"

Glenn Beck - lamestream media.

Someday Matt Drudge, Sean Hannity, and Tucker Carlson will be reunited with Andrew Breitbart, and all four of them can spend eternity rimming Satan's filthy butthole.

The only thing "black" about Obama is the sperm cell.

He was born to a white mom, and raised her, her white parents and an Indonesian stepfather in Indonesia and cosmopolitan Hawaii, where his friends were of any and all races, but mostly non-black.

Obama's youth was nothing close to the stereotypical "black-in-America", experience, and his slipping into "black-speak" for select audiences comes off about a genuine as Romney's color in his Univision interview.

Holy moly, the Romney campaign said something that makes sense!?? STOP THE PRESSES! CALL CNN!
 
2012-10-03 10:54:25 AM
obama is a race-baiter but the racist policies of politicians of both parties just make it easier for him to ply his trade...
 
2012-10-03 10:56:16 AM
if there were any damning video footage of Obama (or discrepencies with his birth certificate for that matter) prior to 2008, I imagine Hillary would have used it for the 2008 Democratic Primaries.

Katrina being bad and Bush's response to it being terrible are about as universal statements as water being wet.
