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

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.

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

      1. Terry

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

  1. BadKitty904

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

  2. Dr_Zoidberg

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

    Except seeing Obama defeat RMoney in November.

  3. LesBontemps

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

    I have seen no evidence of that.

    1. eggsacklywright

      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.

    2. prommie

      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.

      1. FakaktaSouth

        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.

        1. prommie

          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.

          1. FakaktaSouth

            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.

          2. prommie

            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.

          3. Chet Kincaid_

            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.

          4. James Michael Curley

            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.

  4. Steverino247

    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!

    1. noodlesalad

      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.

      1. James Michael Curley

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

    1. freakishlywrong

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

  5. noodlesalad

    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.

    1. Dudleydidwrong

      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."

  6. LibertyLover

    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?

    1. noodlesalad

      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."?

  7. ahnc

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

    1. mrpuma2u

      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.

  8. SorosBot

    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!

    1. Guppy

      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."

  9. Texan_Bulldog

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

  10. Toomush_Infer

    The point is that the quality of video is grainy – GRAINY!!!! If that doesn't say secret Muslin Comunist, then what does????…..

  11. SorosBot

    " 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.

    1. FakaktaSouth

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

    2. MadBrahms

      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.

  12. Chichikovovich

    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.)

  13. Serolf_Divad

    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.

  14. Peckerwood_Pete

    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".

      1. Peckerwood_Pete

        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.

    1. Peckerwood_Pete

      *Steve Irwin voice on*

      Crikey!… the Chicago Republican.. quite a rare species mate…. ya know, he is distant cousin to the South Carolina Pro Choicer…

      *Steve Irwin voice off*

    2. Chet Kincaid_

      They are not allowed in the city except on official business at the State Of Illinois Building (oh fine, officially the James R. Thompson Center). Their visas only allow them to be here until the last train to Winetka.

  15. prommie

    That aint no dancing horse, thats a therapy horse for Ann's MS. So she can call it an $80,000 a year health care deduction. Pondering that makes me more than stabby. It makes me shooty, noose-y, pitchfork and torchey.

    1. FakaktaSouth

      I have GOT to stop commenting with my stupid phone. I don't even know HOW to delete things and I have done it twice. Now it probably looks like I said something about skullfucking a horse.

        1. FakaktaSouth

          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.

          1. FakaktaSouth

            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.

    2. BerkeleyBear

      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.

  16. hagajim

    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.

  17. Dudleydidwrong

    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.

  18. LibertyLover

    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.

  19. valthemus

    "… 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."


    Where's my duct tape? I have to seal myself inside or the liberals might get me! WHERE'S MY FUCKING DUCT TAPE?!?

  20. prommie

    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?

      1. prommie

        Yes, good old "Classic Prommie," fuck the distracting social issues, where is the fucking economic justice for the working class? Waiting for the great leap forward. Billy Bragg without the musical talent. God I wish I could play the fascist-killing guitar!

  21. Pithaughn

    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?

  22. DocChaos

    The Daily Caller vs for lamest conservative muckraking blog of 2012.

    Needs moar gay murders, black marxist teen sex rings and fetish pix.

  23. imissopus

    I think the Daily Caller has become Editrix's white whale. Which, as anyone who has seen pictures or video of Matthew Boyle can attest, is perfectly appropriate.

  24. Limeylizzie

    14 years ago I was cheating on the man I was living with, on a very frequent basis, I no longer do this. See, Breitfarts, people change.
