Breitbart’s Obama Videos are an October Distraction
Thursday, March 8, 2012
Much of the alternative news and the establishment political right has speculated that Andrew Breitbart’s untimely death may have something to do with his opposition to Obama. Some have even suggested that he was murdered to keep compromising tapes of Obama from surfacing. But, at worst, these tapes will prove Obama was a radical left political activist in his youth.
How is this news to anyone? And what purpose does it serve; to get Romney in the White House?
Understandably, it’s a juicy story for conspiracy researchers and for those who oppose Obama. However, Breitbart was a partisan neocon who claimed to be against “Big Government” while promoting preemptive wars and supporting the mythical war on terror. He seemed to be genuine in his bitter partisanship, but he was a poster child for perpetuating the false left-right paradigm.
Now that the tapes are being released by the Breitbart team, they will no doubt take over the news cycle at Fox and other right-wing news outlets. It will be endlessly discussed if Obama was a radical ideologue who hung out with “domestic terrorists” in his youth, or if he was even eligible to be president in the first place with renewed “birther” accusations. It will supposedly be the vetting process that never took place before the 2008 election.
