Andrew Breitbart promised that he has videos of Obama during his college days and will be releasing them this election. Specifically, he stated, “this election, we’re going to vet him. I’ve got videos. This election, we’re going to vet him. From his college days, to show you why racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008. The videos are going to come out, the narrative is going to come out.”
Everyone is wondering where are theses videos now after Andrew Breitlant died last week? Andrew died at age 43 after having a history of heart problems. Steve Bannon, Andrew’s friend, appeared on Fox News’s “Hannity” and continued to promise that the videos will be out in a week or two.
Steve stated on the show: “Guys are going through a series of tapes of President Obama at Harvard and will come back to you in a week or two and show them here on the “Hannity” show. . . . This is something. . . . We’re very systematic about going through these things, very systematic about what the information is.”
Erik Wemple commented on the reported opinion blog of the The Washington Post that “the program dedicated about 18 minutes of air time to the footage and the alleged scandals surrounding it — just enough time to make multiple references to the video’s exclusivity and its suppression by the media.” The Post also stated that “Breitbart.com found footage showing Harvard Law School Professor Charles Ogletree saying that “we hid” the Obama-Bell video during the 2008 election.”
Time will tell whether these videos will actually emerge. Why are they now emerging in the 2012 election and not the 2008 election? What do you think these videos will do to Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign?
