Damage Control: Obama’s Harvard Pal Says He Was Joking About Hiding Damaging Video

Posted by on Mar 09, 2012 at 8:25 am

Sucks being busted on video, doesn’t it? It’s quite amusing seeing the Obamatons flailing about after the release of a single video clip. Go ahead, folks, and fire away. When you’re left without any bullets and more damaging videos emerge, what will you say then?

Harvard Law Professor Charles Ogletree told the Herald he was just kidding when he suggested that a decades-old clip of a young Barack Obama praising and embracing controversial Professor Derrick Bell was kept hidden from voters during the 2008 campaign.

“It was a big joke,” Ogletree said. “If you watch the tape, the audience is laughing when I’m laughing.”

Yeah, they’re laughing because they know the joke is on us. But who’s laughing now?

“It’s much to do about nothing,” said Ogletree, who insisted the clip has been public for years. “It’s not the breaking story that some who want to criticize the president claim it is.”

Nobody claims it’s a breaking story. But it’s a story hidden from Americans who deserve an impartial look at the White House occupier. And we just can’t have that, right?

    Even so, isn’t this the first of several videos that are supposed to come out bit by bit?

    Its not a silver bullet of a bombshell, but its like picking away at the foundation bit by bit. The question becomes whether or not the wall collapses by November or not.

    Hahha. I’m a law professor. And I’m joking about concealing tapes involving the dear leader. In a time when the majority of the country has little or no faith in our government, the media, our elected leaders and our betters in higher education. I’m a freakin’ genius.

    Yes, they cleverly hid the footage by playing it on nationwide tv in 2008, on Frontline.

    Damn those sneaky libruls!

    This is pathetic, Jammie.

    Here’s the whole video of Charles Ochiltree’s comments.


    If you watch it, you’ll see he’s making a joke about the aging of the various participants revealed in contrast to the earlier footage, not any major secret revelation that was being kept from anyone.

    It’s election year. We won’t have any credibility left if we keep screwing up like this. We on the right will will be a laughing stock.

    Check before you link, dammit. There’s too much at stake.

    What’s really bad is the day before breitbart.com accused a media site of “selectively editing” the rally footage and then they pushed this. If you can’t see the hypocrisy in that then you are really wearing partisan blinders.
