Awww the media covered it up, how surprising:

http://dailycaller.com/2012/10/02/obama-speech-jeremiah-wrig...

In a video obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama tells an audience of black ministers, including the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, that the U.S. government shortchanged Hurricane Katrina victims because of racism.

“The people down in New Orleans they don’t care about as much!” Obama shouts in the video, which was shot in June of 2007 at Hampton University in Virginia. By contrast, survivors of Sept. 11 and Hurricane Andrew received generous amounts of aid, Obama explains. The reason? Unlike residents of majority-black New Orleans, the federal government considers those victims “part of the American family.”

The racially charged and at times angry speech undermines Obama’s carefully-crafted image as a leader eager to build bridges between ethnic groups. For nearly 40 minutes, using an accent he almost never adopts in public, Obama describes a racist, zero-sum society, in which the white majority profits by exploiting black America. The mostly black audience shouts in agreement. The effect is closer to an Al Sharpton rally than a conventional campaign event.

He's quite the uniter.

Awww the media covered it up, how surprising


Are you completely incapable of telling the truth or is lying your default mode of communicating? Obama's June 2007 speech was well covered by:

Brian Willams, NBC News
Jake Tapper, ABC News
Anderson Cooper, CNN
The Washington Post
and The Associated Press to name a few.

http://www.politico.com/blogs/media/2012/10/obamas-speech-ho...

You should consider changing the name of this forum to "Retire Early Pants-on-fire."

And what are we left to conclude about the simple minds that rec such posts?

Sorry they didn't say anything about how he went into how people cared more for victims of 9/11 and of Hurricane Andrew. All those clips were little bland overviews with no specifics. If you can't tell the diffence then i'm sorry, you'll just have to get someone to put your pants on for you.

In the world of media, five sources (+/-) isn't "well covered." When something is well covered, it's reported by (literally) thousands of sources--including internationally. This is especially true due to the ubiquitousness of the Internet, where something reported by NBC, ABC, CNN, The Washington Post and the Associated Press is cut-and-pasted by HUNDREDS of jeernalists.

If you go back into Google archives of June 2007, you'll see that this speech was BARELY covered. Thanks to The Daily Caller, it's being covered now 10:1 over June 2007 coverage--possibly more. The Drudge Report does a good job of disseminating lesser covered tidbits, getting as it does multi-millions of hits daily.

" Obama's June 2007 speech was well covered by:"


really?

All they did was pick up the 'blame bush' and 'he didn't do enough for the blacks'....blah blah...

Solid 'class warfae'.

Of course, we could talk about the incompetence of government bureaucrats..who ordered 100 million of temporary housing units that all had to be scrapped due to toxic plywood in them....duh!...

or the incompetence of the dem government in both New Orleans to be the least bit prepared...or the state to react.......

What? We're all supposed to 'chip in' and rebuild all the houses with our tax money when folks had no insurance? when they lived 17 feet below sea level? Where their stupid government allowed that to happen?

And the rant about NYC...oh, wow....let's see...all of about 500 people likely lost their 'residence' in the trade center attack...... but 10,000 businesses were put out of business....and needed some assistance...which they paid back in taxes, no doubt....and in income tax from people getting back to work.

It takes a functional local government to make things work, and match funds, and actually get building underway again.


They're still arguing about who owns what property in New Orleans...the records were destroyed ....and the land owners left no forwarding address and half of the city is abandoned by property owners who have no intention of ever returning.

Obama was simply playing the race card....calling for attention and more tens of billions funneled to inner city minorities....all part of his redistribution plan.

You know he wants to tax the suburbs to fund the city schools, right? Regional tax plans with the cities raking in tax revenue from those 'rich suburbs'....... redistribution of suburban wealth to the inner cities.
