Matt Naugle provides us with a link to a video of a young Barack Obama when he was the President of the Harvard Law Review back in 1990.
It’s actually not a newly surfaced video though. If memory serves, I saw this video of Obama introducing the late Harvard Law professor Derrick Bell perhaps on The History Channel for some biographical program about Obama. I remember the video because of the blue shirt and the humorous quip about Bell’s good looks and charm. Bell passed away last October.
But the Obama video I would really like to see is one of more recent vintage. Specifically, I’d like to see what Barack Obama had to say in 2003 during a tribute to Rashid Khalidi, an anti-Israeli academic who has justified Palestinian suicide bombings. The Los Angeles Times refused to release the video during the 2008 campaign and to this day it keeps the video under lock and key. What could have Obama said that is unfit for public consumption? What do they have to hide?
The Obama-Khalidi video was recorded a year before Obama rose to national prominence at the Democratic National Convention and five years before he was elected President of the United States. If Obama made unfavorable statements about Israel in this video they cannot be dismissed in a way one might dismiss something said two decades after the fact.
If the folks at Breitbart can somehow unearth the Obama-Khalidi video before November it would be a miracle.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
