The Developing Big Buzz… UPDATED – With Video

vid

The Drudge Report has been teasing for the better part of the last two hours about a video of Obama from a couple years ago that The Daily Caller will expose on FOX's Hannity show tonight (9:00 ET). Mark Levin is saying the video was 'scrubbed', but you know how we evil conservative bloggers are with carefully archiving these sorts of things to save them from the worm hole.

A few details on the video of Obama's speech content in Drudge's headlines read as follows...

TONIGHT: OBAMA'S OTHER RACE SPEECH

THE ACCENT... THE ANGER... THE ACCUSATIONS... THE SERMON...

THE SHOUT OUT TO REV. WRIGHT, WHO IS IN AUDIENCE...

'My pastor, the guy who puts up with me, counsels me, listens to my wife complain about me. He's a friend and a great leader. Not just in Chicago, but all across the country'..

FOXNEWS 9 PM ET...

'We don't need to build more highways out in the suburbs. We should be investing in minority-owned businesses, in our neighborhoods'...

(UPDATE - More from Drudge):

OBAMA DECLARES HOW POOR PEOPLE: 'Need help with basic skills, how to shop, how to show up for work on time, how to wear the right clothes, how to act appropriately in an office'... Developing...

DAILY CALLER: 'For nearly 40 minutes, using an accent he never adopts in public, Obama describes a racist, zero-sum society, in which the white majority profits by exploiting black America'... Developing tonight...

It is a good time to remind everyone about a piece Stanley Kurtz penned just this past July about Obama's war on the suburbs:

Stanley Kurtz, who traced Barack Obama‚s left-wing political origins in Radical-in-Chief (2010), is releasing a new and powerful follow-up this week: Spreading the Wealth: How Obama is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities. Kurtz demonstrates that Obama's early political goals included redistributing suburban wealth--and that he is working closely with old community organizing allies to implement that program as president.

When Andrew Breitbart launched "The Vetting," his aim was not only to highlight the radical past that the mainstream media had obscured when promoting Barack Obama, but also to show how Obama's early ideas were the key to understanding his policies in office thus far, as well as his plans for a second term. Spreading the Wealth does that--and more, revealing new insights into some of Obama's most notorious Chicago allies.

The story begins with Obama's early mentors in Chicago, including Mike Kruglik (above with Obama), one of the three organizers Obama "compressed" into the "composite" of Marty Kaufman in his first memoir, Dreams from My Father (a deeply anti-suburban book, Kurtz points out). Obama joined Kruglik and other organizers to set up the Gamaliel Foundation, a radical front that turned its attention to the suburbs as a primary target in the 1990s.

Exclusive: In heated ’07 speech, Obama lavishes praise on Wright, says feds ‘don’t care’ about New Orleans [VIDEO]

In the prepared version distributed to reporters, Obama’s speech ends this way:

“America is going to survive. We won’t forget where we came from. We won’t forget what happened 19 months ago, 15 years ago, thousands of years ago.”
