National Review Lists Top 5 Fake Outrages in Pathetic 5-Year Old ‘Bombshell Video’
At National Review Online, where they’ve had to fire or distance themselves from two overt white nationalists this year, they’re gamely trying to pick out the “most controversial parts” of the 6-year old video dredged up today by the right in a pre-debate surprise attack gone pathetically wrong: The Most Controversial Quotes From Obama’s Hampton University Speech - by Eliana Johnson.
- Hurricane Katrina “was a powerful metaphor for what’s gone [in America] on for generations.”
- “It was also there — at Trinity United Church of Christ on the South Side of Chicago — that I met Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., who took me on another journey and introduced me to a man named Jesus Christ. It was the best education I ever had.”
- On his run for the Illinois State Senate: “And the second thing people would ask me gets back to the question about why we can’t seem to take the bullet out in this country and do the works and the deeds and unite this country.”
- “[The poor] may need help with basic skills — how to show up to work on time, wear the right clothes, and act appropriately in an office. We have to help them get there. That’s why I have called for $50 million to begin innovative new job training and workforce development programs.”
- “We need to give our young people some real choices out there so they move away from gangs and violence and connect them with growing job sectors. That is why I am also going to create a 5-E Youth Service Corps. The ‘E’s’ stand for energy efficiency, environmental education and employment. This program would directly engage disconnected and disadvantaged young people in energy efficiency and environmental service opportunities to strengthen their communities while also providing them with practical skills and experience in important and growing career field.”
It appears that President Obama went off script when he delivered the speech, but if he went on to deliver these remarks as written, I imagine they will cause some controversy.
Allow me to summarize Ms Johnson’s horribly outrageous, show-me-to-my-fainting-couch TOP 5 CONTROVERSIAL points made by Barack Obama 5 years ago at Hampton University:
- Hurricane Katrina. That’s all you need to say to get the right going.
- Obama met Jeremiah Wright and became a devout Christian.
- Obama wants to unite the country.
- Obama wants to help poor people get jobs and have better lives.
- Obama wants to help young people avoid lives of crime and violence and find good jobs.
Man, that’s pretty damning stuff. How will the Obama campaign survive this NUCLEAR BOMBSHELL?
