The Daily Caller Will Take Its Pulitzer Now: Obama Gave Speech 14 Years Ago Calling Republicans ‘Bad Guys’

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Hey Obamatards, it is time for you to feel personal shame at having supported such a foul criminal of a non-American man! You know that speech the Romney camp was flogging last week — the one from 1998 — where Barack Nobama proved he is a Commie Mooselim because he said “redistribution”? Well, the Daily Caller listened to the whole thing, and they have prepared the list of his charges for his impeachment. Please, escort all children and pregnant ladies from the room before you read the following:

“The people who are guilty of disempowering the population are not only the bad guys — I won’t be partisan here and say who the bad guys are,” Obama said. “It’s not only the folks who are representing the special interests, quote-unquote, and the guys with the pinky diamond rings and the fat cats. Sometimes it is also us.”

How dare Obama say a cartoon plutocrat is a bad guy, and then remind his audience that in fact sometimes we all are bad guys? Who does he think he is, Jon Stewart? But THAT IS NOT ALL! Listen to him being a total Marxist:

“How do we pool resources at the same time as we decentralize delivery systems in ways that both foster competition, can work in the marketplace, and can foster innovation at the local level and can be tailored to particular communities?” Obama asked in the seconds NBC added to the national discussion.

We are not sure how to tell you this, but that is still not all! The Daily Caller offers evidence that Barack Obama might be a secret liberal!

But Obama’s voice is heard during more than 29 minutes of the recording, including his prepared remarks and his answers to questions from the audience. At one point on the tape he suggests that the “working poor” on welfare are a political voting bloc that can be harnessed.

Obama is also heard lamenting Americans’ distrust of “government action”; identifying his political opponents — that is, Republicans — as “the bad guys”; declaring his support for labor unions and community organizers; endorsing the public financing of political campaigns; and staking out liberal positions on gun control, government-run health care and welfare reform.

Children, run and collect the sticks for the burning! The moderate Republican who has been governing the country for the past four years may once have been a liberal Democrat! We have no choice but to kill it with fire.

[DailyCaller]

I'd vote for that Obama.

I'm sure Bain Capital has already bought controlling interests in Consolidated Pitchfork, United Torch, and Amalgamated Tar & Feather.

Terry September 24, 2012 at 10:48 am

Bain has dismantled those companies, fired the American workers, and is having substandard products now made overseas.

mrpuma2u September 24, 2012 at 10:27 am

That Obama has left the building…

Yellerdawg September 24, 2012 at 10:35 am

I know! That's the Obama I thought I voted for the first time.

Cue the predictable "what happened to That Guy, who could have done all of that without the help of a hostile Congress?!"

BadKitty904 September 24, 2012 at 9:50 am

You would think these people would've hired some sort of ethnic to scrape the bottom of the barrel for them…

Dr_Zoidberg September 24, 2012 at 9:50 am

My entire life is a lie!!! Now I have nothing to live for.

Except seeing Obama defeat RMoney in November.

LesBontemps September 24, 2012 at 9:51 am

The Daily Caller offers evidence that Barack Obama might be a secret liberal!

I have seen no evidence of that.

eggsacklywright September 24, 2012 at 10:07 am

Yeah, like that one time, in Wisconsin, during a sort of kerfuffle, he said he'd put on some kind of shoes and walk with the union/striker guys. Like that.

prommie September 24, 2012 at 10:30 am

Well you have to admire his commitment to strong securities regulation and reigning in the completely un-regulated staple commodity futures markets that are driving up gasoline and food prices, which are fortunately excluded from the inflation index because after all they are such a miniscule part of the average family budget. Of the Romneys' family budget, I mean.

FakaktaSouth September 24, 2012 at 10:34 am

i totally thought you were going to go off on the “It’s not only the folks who are representing the special interests, quote-unquote, and the guys with the pinky diamond rings and the fat cats. Sometimes it is also us.” of it all. I'm still obsessed with my Eliot Spitzer documentary and I am hating Wall Street and PresO's lack of any change/punishment/regulatory house cleaning there more and more every single day.

prommie September 24, 2012 at 10:50 am

Its a fucking theft by Goldman Sachs every single time a gallon of gas or a loaf of bread is sold in the US today, what with the prices artificially inflated by the futures trading. Wringing fucking money, literally squeezing it from the poor and transferring it to the Goldman Sachs Banksters. What was it Eddie Vedder said, "I can't feed on the powerless when my cup is already overflowing?" Well those fuckers seem to have no problem with it. And Obama clearly has no problem with it.

FakaktaSouth September 24, 2012 at 10:57 am

Oh thank God, there that rant it is. I can't figure out how this is not more of a question still, and all the coverage I hear of this is how the banking industry is turning on PresO. If I were him I'd feel kinda strumpety and left without cab money.

Steverino247 September 24, 2012 at 9:52 am

And you can't change your mind or even moderate your opinion a bit over the course of 14 years, either.

I can't fucking believe people get paid to do shit like this!

noodlesalad September 24, 2012 at 9:55 am

That's not all! 48 years ago Barack Obama believed that all strangers were monsters, that pooping in your pants was OK, and that a red-suited communist redistributed wealth via presents every December 24th.

Steverino247 September 24, 2012 at 9:57 am

Ho! Ho! Ho!

James Michael Curley September 24, 2012 at 2:29 pm

That was Mayor Daley. Why do you think Obama moved to Chicago. The real Mayor Daley, not some poseur son or four fingered mute.

MacRaith September 24, 2012 at 10:20 am

Unless you're Mitt Romney. Then you can change your position in the middle of a sentence and it's OK.

SorosBot September 24, 2012 at 10:23 am

Well it's not like his campaign bragged that he's like an Etch-O-Sketch or anything.

Chet Kincaid_ September 24, 2012 at 11:20 am

There's nothing there to apologize for, then or now.

Radiotherapy September 24, 2012 at 9:52 am

The last moderate Republican standing.

glasspusher September 24, 2012 at 10:20 am

Hunted to extinction. DNA studies show modern Democrats once shared a common ancestor with them, though.

Radiotherapy September 24, 2012 at 10:41 am

Much like the Neanderthals.

Goonemeritus September 24, 2012 at 9:53 am

Some of the people with “pinky diamond rings” are just Italian.

freakishlywrong September 24, 2012 at 10:21 am

"Guigines" as we called them in NYC. They were the Staten Island variety; they always wore pinky rings.

noodlesalad September 24, 2012 at 9:53 am

So, if this election was held 15 years ago, we would have a liberal Republican running against a liberal Democrat? Can we go back to this time? I'm starting to understand why the olds all choked up when thinking about the past.

Dudleydidwrong September 24, 2012 at 10:24 am

Yes. Even though I've been a Democrat for more than 3/4 of a century (or longer, as my Mom was one before she met Dad) we can remember when Republicans were of the stripe of Thomas E. Dewey and Dwight Eisenhower. Yeah, monkey politicians threw poo at one another even then, but not in buckets or via bucket loaders. Manichean dualism was mostly absent from political discourse "way back then."

LibertyLover September 24, 2012 at 9:54 am

That's some crunchy goodness of investigative reporting right there! Shock of shocks! The Daily Caller caught a Democrat being a Democrat! Quel horreur!

By the way, know who else supported labor unions?

SorosBot September 24, 2012 at 9:56 am

Ronald Regan, former head of the Screen Actors' Guild?

noodlesalad September 24, 2012 at 10:05 am

Eisenhower, who, in an address to the AFL-CIO in 1955 said:

"Moreover, we cannot be satisfied with welfare in the aggregate; if any group or section of citizens is denied its fair place in the common prosperity, all others among us are thereby endangered."?

miss_grundy September 24, 2012 at 3:59 pm

Eisenhower was a RINO.

ChillBill September 24, 2012 at 9:55 am

Clearly, we must Impeach.

ahnc September 24, 2012 at 9:55 am

What will the Daily Caller come up with for the October surpise? Surely, the Commie Mooselim claim has run its course.

mrpuma2u September 24, 2012 at 10:30 am

Footage of Barry and Reverend Wright on a fishing trip together, saying "Gawddam America" as they put in their poles to taunt the patriotic fish into biting.

Good job there Daily Caller, finding video of Obama supporting perfectly reasonable mainstream ideas. The next scandal they uncover may be secret video of him petting a kitten!

That was 14 years ago. The difference is that 14 years from today nobody will remember Mitt Romney.

Guppy September 24, 2012 at 10:48 am

Nah, we'll remember Mitt for the same reason we remember George: one of his sons will run for the White House.

It'll be "his turn."

Texan_Bulldog September 24, 2012 at 10:00 am

If this is all they have, they're going to be reduced to putting Barry's head on black actor's in porn movies.

Guppy September 24, 2012 at 10:49 am

And I suspect you'd be among the first to buy that movie.

ttommyunger September 24, 2012 at 10:00 am

Suggesting that poor people be encouraged to vote is simply beyond the pale.

Unpossible.

SorosBot September 24, 2012 at 10:06 am

" At one point on the tape he suggests that the “working poor” on welfare are a political voting bloc that can be harnessed."

And this shows you the depths of the wingnut's sociopathy; they actually think encouraging the poor to vote and working for their vote is somehow a bad thing. Fuck those asshats.

FakaktaSouth September 24, 2012 at 10:07 am

Especially what with this being the fastest growing segment of society. Poors are the new Hispanics. Get on board guys!

MadBrahms September 24, 2012 at 10:24 am

What does it actually say on the tape? It is not working here in the magical orient, and I can't wait to hear what Obama has to say about keeping those welfare moms democrats.

Chichikovovich September 24, 2012 at 10:07 am

Frankly I'm pretty disturbed too. What happened to the Obama who called Republicans "bad guys"?

I miss him.

Given that just a few years earlier the second or third runner up in the Republican primary was not only calling Democrats "traitors", "corrupt", etc. but had a long list of words like that, and he gave instructions to Republicans generally that they were to *only* to use words like that, I can understand why the Daily Caller might find Obama's words a bit mild. (That *was* their point, right? – Obama wasn't harsh enough on Republicans, given how Gingrich ordered people to be about Democrats? I didn't read the article.)

Serolf_Divad September 24, 2012 at 10:11 am

Pity the Teabaggers. Our smoking gun is a video of Mitt Romney telling a bunch of rich douchebags that 47% of Americans are hopeless, so fuck 'em. Their smoking gun is a video of Barack Obama telling a group of college kids that government has a place in civilized society, and… oh yeah… poor people should have a voice in politics, too.

Peckerwood_Pete September 24, 2012 at 10:11 am

Yeah, I'm sure "public campaign financing" will catch on in the Congress…. they'll most likely bring it to a vote after they get around to "term limits".

glasspusher September 24, 2012 at 10:24 am

Term limits for lobbyists, please.

Peckerwood_Pete September 24, 2012 at 10:29 am

How about a ban on lobbyists…. at least on lobbying firms. I have no issues with private citizens taking grievances to Congress… but the shits out of hand.

glasspusher September 24, 2012 at 10:44 am

Works for me!

Maman September 24, 2012 at 10:12 am

I am thinking the Daily Caller has never met a Chicago Republican.

FakaktaSouth September 24, 2012 at 10:36 am

I like the word harness a lot in particular. It's funny when I get stuck on a word and it comes up in conversation again and again.

prommie September 24, 2012 at 10:41 am

Thats not usually called a harness, what you were talking about.

Incitefully_Joe September 24, 2012 at 10:31 am

I thought Mittler tried to claim it at a "business expense", because dancing horse training housing is SRYS BIZNASS.

BerkeleyBear September 24, 2012 at 11:48 am

Technically this was not claimed as a medical expense (they made too much for even the absurd amount Rafalca costs to meet the 7.5 percent threshold for medical expenses). This was that bullshit hobby farm exception that only the uber-wealthy can take, since real farmers can't waste this kind of cash on non-productive bullshit.

Chow Yun Flat September 24, 2012 at 10:24 am

"decentralize delivery systems"

Policy wonkishness at its best. Just a cover for the brazen call for class warfare when he said he supported labor unions.

hagajim September 24, 2012 at 10:26 am

Thanks again Daily Caller, for setting the business I used to love even further back. This isn't fucking news, as one of my Professor's used to say – it's olds and nobody gives a shit. Oh – but its the Caller, I forget.

StealthMuslin September 24, 2012 at 10:27 am

Shouldn't the Daily Caller be focused on more important things in 1998, like impeaching Bill Clinton?

They ran out of tape before Obama sang the Internationale, while performing an abortion.

He called the GOP bad guys?!? That's it. I am certainly voting for that nice Thurston Howell now.

Dudleydidwrong September 24, 2012 at 10:32 am

Snark Off: The speech by Barry from fourteen years ago when compared with his views or record now is evidence as to how far rightward the whole damn country has moved in that very short time span, propelled by the hate invective being spewed by the Reich Wingnuts. I would hope that Barry would recognize that and begin to move Leftward because there isn't much of a center any more.

But then, I still believe in that red-suited communist who redistributes wealth via chimneys.

randcoolcatdaddy September 24, 2012 at 10:33 am

We must hang the liberal chair in effigy!

LibertyLover September 24, 2012 at 10:43 am

It occurs to me that if the Daily Caller spent as much time urging Republicans to actually govern the country instead of dumpster diving for high school crimes of any Democrat within mud-slinging distance, their employees might not have to subject themselves to Silkwood showers every night after work.

valthemus September 24, 2012 at 10:58 am

Republicans govern? They're too busy proving that government doesn't work by making sure that the government doesn't work.

magic_titty September 24, 2012 at 10:54 am

Republicans are still campaigning against Barack Obama '98? Even though they'd lose to him too?

valthemus September 24, 2012 at 10:56 am

"… declaring his support for labor unions and community organizers; endorsing the public financing of political campaigns; and staking out liberal positions on gun control, government-run health care and welfare reform."

OOOOHHHHHHHHH MYYYYYYYYYYYYY GOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!

The only thing interesting about this speech is that apparently there was a time when Barry was NOT owned by Wall Street. Huh. Thats fucking interesting. I wonder when they got their hooks in him?

THAT is what I was looking for, right there. Aight thanks, I can go do something else now.

FYI, the "pinky ring" thing is a reference to Chicago Aldermen. That's one of the sartorial indications of their free-range venality.

I'm wondering what is the opposite of noblesse obligea or whatever it's called?
Won't the leaders of the 47% remind them that if they tax the upper crust too much they will kill the economy or something? Is'nt it likely that having a constant debate about who and how much to tax is the best way to manage this?

maybe not, but it is still the word I happened to use, so it is still applicable here. Harness Harness Harness. It's one of those "loses all meanings" words when you repeat it a bunch.

And also I am going to say swing-set here for clarity, so this does not look worse and grosser than it actually was.

prommie September 24, 2012 at 11:06 am

Well you see the media has marginalized anyone who brings up financial regulation as an "Occupy" crazy. But any occupier could give you that fucking rant. I am stabby about it, because its worse now than ever before when a loaf of bread costs $3.99 these days and I bet a dollar of it is going to futures traders in a totally un-regulated mostly unknown market. Its like a tax imposed by some feudal king, like tribute being paid to the Viking raiders. Where's our hopey-changey unicorn? Where is the "liberal commie" the fucktards hate so much? Fucker.

Chet Kincaid_ September 24, 2012 at 11:42 am

It's a lot easier to piss, moan and bitch about Obama than come up with a long-term, Norquist-like plan to keep and hold Congress so that you could actually enact your legislative unicorns.

Boojum September 24, 2012 at 1:03 pm

A swing set like this?. NSFW

James Michael Curley September 24, 2012 at 2:26 pm

Its time to elect the people who are going to stop Romney, et al., from turning life into a Dickens novel with no happy ending. Then the Unicorn rides again.
