I could fill pages with the heights to which Obama’s creep-factor has risen, but for now, if you are still confused, this whopper of a direct lie should make your skin crawl. The video that broke Tuesday of Obama in 2007 excoriating Whites for suspending the Stafford Act during Katrina shows he is a psychological nutcase. Obama is a dangerous man. He is accusing Whites of enforcing a law that forced New Orleans and surrounding areas to come up with some funds to go with each dollar of aid given to them by the government. The fact is, that law was suspended, and just ten days before giving this speech on June 5, 2007, OBAMA VOTED AGAINST THE SUSPENSION of the law – AGAINST suspending the law in favor of victims of Katrina. As Mark Levin says in the quote below Obama’s, “what kind of mind works that way?”
OBAMA: I want to give you one example because this really steams me up. This isn’t in the prepared remarks. Down in New Orleans, where they still have not rebuilt 20 months later. There is a law, federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government, called the Stafford act. And basically, it says, when you get federal money, you have to give a 10 percent match, the local government’s got to come up with 10 percent. Every $10 the federal government comes up with, the local government’s got to give a dollar.
Now, here’s the thing. When 9/11 happened in New York City, they waived the Stafford act, said, this is too serious a problem. We can’t expect New York City to rebuild on its own. Forget that dollar you have to put in. Well, here’s $10. And that was the right thing to do. When Hurricane Andrew struck in Florida, people said, look at this devastation! We don’t expect to you come up with your own money here! Here’s the money to rebuild.
We are not going to wait for to you scratch it together because you are part of the American family. What’s happening down in New Orleans? Where’s your dollar? Where’s your Stafford Act money? Makes no sense. Tells me the bullet hasn’t been taken out.
Tells me that somehow the people down in New Orleans, they don’t care about as much. Read the transcript at Fox News with an excellent discussion, or view the video here.
Here’s the story from Mark Levin (view the video at Right Scoop)
MARK LEVIN: One of the central themes of this evil race-baiting speech that Obama gave in 2007 at Hampton University’s Annual Minister’s Conference was the law called the Stafford Act. Now, the Stafford Act – turns out just 10 days before that speech, it was voted on in the Senate, H.R. 2206. It’s called the US Troop Readiness, Veteran’s Care, Katrina Recovery and Iraq Accountability Appropriation Act of 2007, as the Hayride.com reports.
That Resolution amounted to $6.9 Billion appropriation to the Gulf Coast which waived the Stafford Act. It would allow these monies to flow into the Gulf area, because of Katrina because of all the damage without requiring those local governments to come up with one penny of matching dollars. AND OBAMA VOTED AGAINST IT. And there were only 14 Senators who voted against it. He was one of them. He was one of 14 Senators to vote against appropriating $6.9 Billion to Katrina relief with no strings attached. AND THEN 10 DAYS LATER he [Obama] goes in front of this group at Hampton University’s Annual Ministers Conference, June 5, 2007 and points to this law, which he voted against as an example of racism and that’s what he meant by the Federal Government, by the Bush Administration in particular, against the people of New Orleans and the surrounding areas.
This is a devious as it gets. It doesn’t get any worse than this, and the media today are attacking the Daily Caller and the Drudge Report, Sean Hannity for the video…THIS VIDEO TELLS US EVERYTHING. And those of us who already know it, it underscores it and puts ten exclamation points behind it.
He votes against the very law he uses to prove his view, I guess to a group of ministers, that our government and the Bush Administration in particular, is racist in the way that it provides support for communities in trouble.
Now I ask you this, what kind of a mind works that way? What kind of a psychology does someone have to have to knowingly lie like that? I tell you, he has more contempt for minorities – I’m about to say something – I don’t mean to be controversial but the way he campaigns and things he says…he has more contempt for the intelligence of minorities than any politician on the scene today.
What you need to know is, the mainstream media has had the full video since the time it happened, and sat on it. The snippets they reported had nothing to do with the real story. If you haven’t been paying attention for the last 4 years and the year before leading up to the election, now is the time. This is who your President is.
