Obama’s Radical Past Comes Back to Haunt Him Again

 SEAN HANNITY, FOX NEWS HOST: And tonight, he did not have a record to run on in 2008. And constantly accused his opponents of using scare tactics with the vote but that is exactly what President Obama is doing now. And with the help of the RNC, voters are being reminded of the promises that Obama made just four short years ago. Watch this.(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)PRES. BARACK OBAMA (D), UNITED STATES: If you are willing to work even harder in this election, I promise you change will come.UNIDENTIFIED MAN: President Obama’s campaign staff is already planning how to go negative on the republican candidate.UNIDENTIFIED MAN: It’s fear this time, 2012, it’s fear of the alternative.UNIDENTIFIED MAN: The Obama campaign said they wanted to quote, “Kill Mitt Romney,” that they were going to trash him.OBAMA: Because if you don’t have any fresh ideas, then you use staled tactics to scare voters.UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: It’s republican property passes like a tornado through America’s nursing homes.OBAMA: If you don’t have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from.Disguised as deficit reduction plans is really an attempt to impose a radical vision on our country.He makes a big election about small — they must have been founding members of the flat earth society.(END VIDEO CLIP)HANNITY: But President Obama’s own words aren’t the only thing from his past that are coming back to haunt him. Now, just when you think you heard the last of Reverend Jeremiah Wright, that’s Obama’s former pastor of more than 20 years while he reemerges with even more controversial comments. Now, last week while delivering several sermons at the Metropolitan Baptist Church in West Virginia, Reverend Wright in typical fashion, spewed hate-filled comments from the pulpit. And while the church did post a sermon on its Web site, they refused to give us permission tonight to air them. But that’s not going to stop us from revealing exactly what Reverend Wright said from calling Thomas Jefferson a pedophile to taking a swipe at Clarence Thomas.He covered it all on race and politics. Obama former pastor said quote, “There are politicians who are making decisions about you, about your life, about your future, about your family, about your children. And the real tragedy is they live in a different world from your world altogether. They’re people in power right now who have opinions about you based on their privilege of skin color.” And later he said, quote, “The ignorance and arrogance of white supremacy have the shapers and movers of world policy living in a different world from people of color altogether.” And the sooner you realize that, the better off you’re going to be.Joining me now with reaction is the former Clinton Advisor Dick Morris. Dick, good to see you, sir.DICK MORRIS, FORMER CLINTON ADVISOR: Doesn’t he realize that the president of the United States is black?HANNITY: Well, you know, this goes to the heart of the honesty of the President. And a lot of it is controversial appointments of which we are going to examine this week. In other words, the very extreme people that he’s putting position of power. Where did these ideas come from? What motivated him?MORRIS: He is the most extreme and the most powerful. Here you have the right say saying that white supremacy drives the world. Does he realize that the person that holds the most powerful, focused, important position on the planet is black? I mean, he could have given me exact same sermon five years ago. And it shows the concept that the electing Obama would promote racial healing is really the opposite of what has happened.HANNITY: You know, he said a couple other things. He didn’t mention me by name but that’s irrelevant as far as I’m concerned. He said about Clarence Thomas that he is worshiping some other God. Took a shot at Clarence Thomas. Took a shot at, you know, saying that fighting for peace is like raping for virginity. I’m trying to understand.MORRIS: Yes. I love that line. I love that line. I mean, I love our men and women in armed forces to hear that line and believe that that’s what people say. It’s so obviously untrue. Stopping Adolf Hitler was the way to stop violence in World War II. Capturing Saddam Hussein was the way to stop genocide against the Iraqi people, killing Osama Bin Laden was the way to save lives against terrorism. Promoting military action against violence is absolutely the best way to preserve the peace. And to call it raping for chastity is ridiculous.HANNITY: Yes. Was America and Great Britain wrong to take on Nazi Germany and imperial Japan? I mean, is anyone in the media ever going to take time to ask that question? I doubt it.MORRIS: Now, Sean, you often criticize me for cynical motivation. And I do not believe that it is a total coincidence that Reverend Wright has now surfaced after four years in absentia. And I think that what may be happening here is that there may be a deliberate orchestrated effort by the Obama White House to promote racial division that gives them the basis for stoking an African-American turn-out in the election. And you just look at the signs there and connect a couple of dots, you begin to realize that this is not a coincidence. The Trayvon Martin thing, this thing.HANNITY: Well, I got to ask you about this. Because he engaged in this Sandra Fluke controversy but ignores all the people that have donated to him or raised money for him that have said outrageous things about women. He’s tried to make this an issue about women. You mention Trayvon Martin, that’s another case. His attack on the Supreme Court is another one. It seems to be like one week now. You cynically or perhaps realistically believe this is by design. And you think that maybe word was sent to Reverend Wright?MORRIS: Well, the President of the United States doesn’t do anything in an election year. Unless it’s calculated. And I think the Trayvon Martin thing undoubtedly was. In terms of communicating with Wright, it’s a coincidence that bothers me that Wright would speak up at this point. But let’s sweep that aside. I have a column in today’s post, that’s on my video tomorrow morning. The Obama administration’s re-election strategy is to hype the turn-out among African-Americans, Latinos and young people. And to do that as opposed to selling them hope and change which is what he did in `08, is to stoke their fear and their envy. So that it’s not that you can promise change to African-Americans as you can say, you live in a white supremacist world. A cop can shoot your son anytime he wants to even if he doesn’t have a gun. It’s not to tell Latinos I’m going to really hasten your integration into American society and increase your material wealth. Instead it’s telling them there is another group of people that hate you. And then young people talk about the student loans and all kinds of issues for them. It’s fear and envy replacing hope and change.HANNITY: Yes, because they can’t run on their record. You know, I did say one similarity is that Reverend Wright blame the media and President blames ATM machines, kiosk, tsunamis, earthquakes, FOX News, talk radio, Karl Rove, Sean Hannity. So, it shows a similarity. Last question, Dick. What did you think of the RNC ad that we played? I thought it was a pretty powerful.MORRIS: I think it’s great. I think the more you can use Obama’s words against him, it’s a little bit like reminding someone of you know, what the gate was like before the hangover when you were still having a great time and supposed to be really wonderful relationship. And then you woke up and had a hangover and decided it wasn’t. Particularly, if we go back to some of the things Obama said about jobs where I said, I rather be a one term president than not improve the economy. Guaranteeing the unemployment rate would go down if the stimulus was passed. I think that the more you can quote Obama against Obama, the more you make people understand that they would deceive in 2008, the hardest thing to do when a guy runs for re-election is to convince people they were wrong the first time. A lot easier to tell them he deceived you the first time. And that’s really what the RNC ad does.HANNITY: Dick Morris, I appreciate your insight as always. Thanks for being with us.MORRIS: Thank you, Sean.
