As a result, desperation is the only way I can explain the fact that Breitbart, Fox, The Daily Caller, and Drudge have all featured this 1991 video of Barack Obama on their websites over the last couple of days.
They're acting like this is a new revelation (their youtube version was posted two days ago). But if you check out the origin of the one up above, it was posted way back in March 2009. So its hardly some recent "find" from Obama's "dark" past.
None of the sites are writing much about it. Most of them just posted the video with no comment. But the Daily Caller provides some background, talks about how Obama's voice was much deeper back then, and then ends with this.
Obama’s approval numbers have fallen precipitously as the economy has deteriorated. Additional vintage videos of the president may yet emerge for the benefit of a public more eager than ever to vet their future leaders.
So what we have here folks is a really lame attempt at a dog whistle. First of all, they want the racists to be alarmed that Obama was touting Black history way back in 1991. And then they want them to wonder what other nefarious stuff he was up to long ago that perhaps we haven't heard about yet.
I'm sure this provides a little red meat to the folks on the right who suffer from Obama Derangement Syndrome. But really...you have to laugh at their desperation, don't you?
