The Real Obama




It’s the Obama speech on race you probably haven't heard.

In June 2007, then-Sen. Barack Obama told a mostly black audience of ministers that the country’s leaders "don't care about" New Orleans residents, suggesting the city was neglected in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina because of institutional racism, according to a an unedited video uncovered by The Daily Caller.

In the address, delivered during the upswing of the Democratic presidential primary season, candidate Obama specifically criticizes in outspoken terms the decision not to waive a federal law known as the Stafford Act that requires communities hit by disasters to match 10 percent of federal aid.

“When 9/11 happened in New York City, they waived the Stafford Act. … And that was the right thing to do,” he tells the crowd at Hampton University in Virginia. “When Hurricane Andrew struck in Florida, people said, 'Look at this devastation. We don't expect you to come up with your own money. Here, here's the money to rebuild. We’re not going wait for you to scratch it together, because you're part of the American family.' "

Obama, echoing rapper Kanye West’s infamous anti-Bush remarks a couple years earlier, then argues that New Orleans was treated differently, suggesting the reason was that the city is mostly black.

"What's happening down in New Orleans? Where's your dollar? Where's your Stafford Act money?" Obama says. "Makes no sense. ... Tells me that somehow the people down in New Orleans they don’t care about as much."

The Obama campaign didn’t response to FoxNews.com's request for comment Tuesday night about the Daily Caller report and the video, but the Associated Press reported that Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt dismissed the criticism as "a transparent attempt to change the subject" at a time when Mitt Romney is down in the polls.

Media organizations covered the speech at the time, but the Daily Caller said the video it obtained showed parts of the speech that had never been publicized. It posted what it said was the complete speech on the website.

By January 2007, nearly a year and a half after Hurricane Katrina hit, the federal government had committed $110 billion to relief efforts in areas hit by Katrina through a variety of programs, including Community Development Block Grants, funding for the Corps of Engineers and Small Business Administration loans, according to a report that May by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic and Statistics Administration.
But at the time of Obama's speech, there were still concerns about federal response to the disaster under the Stafford Act, which governs relief efforts. The Federal Emergency Management Agency was unwilling to waive the law’s 10 percent local match provision for aid, like it did after the Sept. 11 attacks and other hurricanes.
“One reason cited for FEMA’s reluctance to waive the 10 percent match in New Orleans is concern about corruption,” the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies said in a 2008 report on the relief efforts.

That report also noted that then-Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco was pushing in early 2007 for a federal law eliminating the 10 percent match. The House passed the bill, but it stalled in the Senate and President Bush had threatened to veto it.

The complete video of Obama’s 2007 speech, surfacing barely a month before the presidential election and the night before Obama’s first debate with Romney, could complicate Obama’s efforts to avoid a politically risky debate over race that partly ensnared him during the 2008 race. Four years ago, his fiery pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, became a political liability over videos that showed Wright making controversial statements.
Obama, after initially defending him, eventually was forced to condemn Wright publicly, and the controversy prompted Obama to deliver his much-heralded 2008 address on race in Philadelphia.

Wright reportedly attended the 2007 speech, and in the video obtained by the Daily Caller, Obama is heard calling Wright "my pastor, the guy who puts up with me, counsels me, listens to my wife complain about me. He's a friend and a great leader. Not just in Chicago, but all across the country.”

The Daily Caller also highlighted a segment in which Obama questions federal priorities in transportation spending.

"We need additional federal public transportation dollars flowing to the highest-need communities. We don’t need to build more highways out in the suburbs. If we have people in the cities right now who want to work but have no way to get into those jobs, we've got to help connect them to the jobs that exist,” Obama said. “We should be investing in minority-owned businesses, in our neighborhoods, so people don’t have to travel from miles away.”

      "What's happening down in New Orleans? Where's your dollar? Where's your Stafford Act money?" Obama says. "Makes no sense. ... Tells me that somehow the people down in New Orleans they don’t care about as much."

      Classic Obama (or most politicians), red meat for a specific audiance. He might be right about institutional racism but in New Orleans' case it was racism at the local level not at the federal. Some La. pols took comfort in the fact that Katrina helped solve the low income housing problems in the city.

      The federal government's problems with Katrina revolved around incompetance and bureaucratic drag not money. I was amazed at the time that Congress would authorize $80 billion in Katrina relief within a day or two of the hurricane before federal boots were even on the ground or any kind of cost estimates could be made. Once authorized, this money quickly became the source of much of the corruption and ineptitude that followed.

      As far as the FED sticking it to NO, remember it was the Bush administration that waived procurement rules that limited unregulated purchases to $2500. Bush upped the limit to $250,000 (thus probably adding to the endemic corruption associated with the event).

      As far as Obama claiming NO was treated unfairly on a Stafford Rule waiver as a result of racism, well...

      Remember, the cost of Katrina was $108 billion. The cost of Andrew was about a quarter of that. Likewise, Andrew was in 1992 while Katrina was in 2005. After any major disaster like those of these hurricanes, there is always a post-mortem describing things that went right and wrong. Rules have been evolving every year since Katrina.

      Frankly, NO probably made out better under federal relief for Katrina merely by the fact that the federal effort was such a disaster. They were throwing money at NO on a non-partisan basis to make up for the original FUBAR.

      That Obama would make the racism argument to a black audiance in the middle of a political campaign? No surprise.

  6. Here’s what Carlson is reporting over at the DC with regard to the Stafford Act:

    “At the moment he uttered those words — you are getting short-changed in the Katrina reconstruction funds — the administration, the government had pledged $110 billion to the Gulf. Two weeks before this speech, the Bush administration gave the Katrina-affected areas $7 billion with no strings attached,” Carlson explained. “He was a sitting senator. He knew that and he said this anyway to that audience and I think that’s a shocking thing to do.”

    For those who see no harm in the governments data collection efforts under Homeland Security,

    A multibillion-dollar information-sharing program created in the aftermath of 9/11 has improperly collected information about innocent Americans and produced little valuable intelligence on terrorism, a Senate report concludes. It portrays an effort that ballooned far beyond anyone's ability to control.

    What began as an attempt to put local, state and federal officials in the same room analyzing the same intelligence has instead cost huge amounts of money for data-mining software, flat screen televisions and, in Arizona, two fully equipped Chevrolet Tahoes that are used for commuting, investigators found.

    The lengthy, bipartisan report is a scathing evaluation of what the Department of Homeland Security has held up as a crown jewel of its security efforts. The report underscores a reality of post-9/11 Washington: National security programs tend to grow, never shrink, even when their money and manpower far surpass the actual subject of terrorism. Much of this money went for ordinary local crime-fighting.

    Disagreeing with the critical conclusions of the report, Homeland Security says it is outdated, inaccurate and too focused on information produced by the program, ignoring benefits to local governments from their involvement with federal intelligence officials.

    Because of a convoluted grants process set up by Congress, Homeland Security officials don't know how much they have spent in their decade-long effort to set up so-called fusion centers in every state. Government estimates range from less than $300 million to $1.4 billion in federal money, plus much more invested by state and local governments. Federal funding is pegged at about 20 percent to 30 percent.

    Despite that, Congress is unlikely to pull the plug. That's because, whether or not it stops terrorists, the program means politically important money for state and local governments.

  14. WTI crude oil closed last week below $90 a barrel for the first time since August 2, 2012. Brent crude oil is also near its one month low, trading around $110. In a CNBC interview T.Boone Pickens stated that the low prices in oil are related to the slowdown in China’s economy. Pickens believes that Brent crude oil will be at $115 by the end of the year, and natural gas should reach $4 by the end of the year.

    Unlike many hedge fund managers, Pickens is 100% focused in his core competency, energy markets. The energy mogul also made three other bold statements about oil and gas. Pickens believed that (1) the U.S. has enough natural resources to one day stop importing OPEC crude oil, (2) there are 30 states producing oil and gas, the highest we’ve ever had, and (3) natural gas is the “alternative energy” for transportation.

    Elaborating on his first point about no longer importing OPEC crude oil, in the CNBC interview, Pickens was asked how long it would take for the U.S. to be less dependent on OPEC. Pickens broke down his methodology in layman’s terms stating of the 20 million barrels of oil we use a day, 11 million is imported. Of that 11 million imported, 4.5 million comes from OPEC, and Pickens believes we could easily cover that using oil found here in the U.S.

    Anyone with interest in the energy sector will tell you that the presidential election this year could shape the direction the U.S. will take on the energy front. Pickens pointed out in his CNBC interview that although Obama talks about energy a little bit, he has not shared a comprehensive strategy. Pickens believes Romney will win the election, and one major reason for that is his energy plan. Pickens believes that Romney has a realistic energy plan which encompasses bringing together Mexico, Canada, and the United States, to make North America energy independent.

    Seeing natural gas as the “alternative energy” for transportation seems like a pretty far-out there prediction at a glance. Pickens doesn’t believe the idea is unrealistic, though, as he pointed out that there are 13 million vehicles in the world on natural gas, and only 130,000 of them in the United States. Doug Sharp, president of GP Strategies, has an interesting view on natural gas being implemented in transportation. He predicts that “the first customers who convert to natural gas vehicles will be the return-to-base operators, and the second will be the long-haul truckers.” Return-to-base operators will fill their tanks up at their base location every morning, and have scheduled runs every day where they return back to their base after work (ex: buses and delivery services). The technology is available to transform the automotive industry from oil to gas, and gas engine automobiles are slowly becoming a larger focus on the energy scene.

  33. Yes, I realize everyone in the media is telling me that the race for President is over. With 5 weeks to go, Obama has been called the winner by the DC bubble of journalists. Even the beltway GOP has gotten into the act. (My hatred of them will become clear on November 7th) An objective read of recent polling, however, shows that Obama is clearly in trouble. Obama is losing and it is his campaign that needs a boost from today's debate.

    This week, virtually every media organization has rushed forward their pre-debate polls. Every poll seems to be converging on an Obama lead of 2-4 points. The problem for Obama is that all of these polls have very ambitious assumptions about Democrat turnout this year. It will not come close to 2008 levels, putting Obama's reelection in real jeopardy.

    Tonight, National Journal released their latest poll. Among likely voters, the race is tied. Among independents, Romney has an 8-point lead. As you can probably guess, the poll assumes a 2008 turnout model and is D+7. So, if Democrats achieve the same history-making turnout they experienced in 2008, Obama and Romney are tied. In 2008, with a D+7 electorate, Obama defeated McCain by 7 points. Today, with the same electorate, Obama is tied.

    Tell me, which campaign is underperforming?

    In the past two weeks, virtually every media poll has shown a narrowing of the presidential race. Obama's lead is now beneath the Democrat skew in polls. In other words, a D+5 poll, for example, will give him a lead of 2-3 points. Another poll with a D+7 sample will show him tied. The numbers change, but his lead has never exceeded the partisan oversampling in any poll. He has never held a lead in any poll that has a more realistic turnout of the November elections.

    You poll a lot of Democrats, Obama wins. You poll based on a realistic turnout of the November elections? Obama loses.

    The media, in its waning days, can only get you so far. They have sacrificed their credibility on the altar of Obama, but it won't be enough. They tell us that Romney needs to win the debates to turn his campaign around. Yet, his campaign is steadily gaining ground against Obama. Going into the first debate, the underdog is Obama. The pressure is on him to right his own ship.

    "I can't believe I'm tweeting this, but it looks like Obzma does need a teleprompter."

  39. I said in the open thread that the media would strain to spin this as an Obama victory, but I assumed that he’d give them something, however small, to work with. He gave them nothing. The Hill’s post-debate headline is “Romney lands punches against subdued Obama in first debate,” but that doesn’t remotely capture it. How bad was it for Team O? Dude:

    More reaction from Twitter below. A rare moment of bipartisan consensus for America:

    Aaron Blake @FixAaron

    Slowly the left is starting to acknowledge that Obama is losing this debate. #debates

    There will be some first class liberal/Dem rage howling tomorrow. Painfully knocked out of the warm bubble of easy victory tonight.

    Has Obama ever been this off his game?

    That wasn't a debate so much as Mitt Romney just took Obama for a cross country drive strapped to the roof of his car.

    My only hope is that the debate is so boring people won't see how bad obama is doing

    And the coup de grace of an unspinnably terrible night for the left:

    MSNBC consensus seems to be Obama lost.

  40. The polls will be tighter, possibly tied, on the next round of polling. I think we're back to the 50.5 to 49.5 race.

    The lefties are all upset that Obama let Romney get away with a lot of obfuscation, but there's a reason why Obama's there, and they're talking to microphones.

    And, Romney didn't make $250 Million by being a lousy salesman.

  42. As I've said before, here, the challenger has been judged the winner of the first debate 5 out of 6 (now, 6 out of 7) times.

    It's just not in the nature of one who's been President for 4 years to expect someone to stare into his eyes, and lie like a dog in front of 50 Million people. But, that's what challengers do.

  43. Obama got his ass handed to him. He looked like a petulant juvenile. The media has suffered a mass concussion.

  44. I would refer you back to the Bush/Kerry debate. Kerry came out like a machine gun. Everyone said he won. He jumped in the polls. BUT, he couldn't win the election.

    The Average person didn't see what the political junkies saw. They watched for ten minutes, and then went to get a beer from the fridge.

    For those that watched the whole debate, Romney won. BUT, he said a lot of things that he'll have to stand behind in the coming weeks, and debates.

    This debate made it a "horse race," again - just like it was always going to be. But, it did nothing to change the facts on the ground for the main constituencies. Most of the minds it changed were of low-information, unlikely to vote anyway, undecideds.

    I still make it a one point election win for Obammie.
