That's -- he did not have a record to run on in 2008 constantly -- used his opponents of using scare tactics with the voters.
But that is exactly what president Obama's doing narrow and with the help of the RNC.
Voters of being reminded of the promises that Obama made just four short years ago.
Love the work you've.
Even harder than the selection I promise you -- woke up.
President Obama's campaign stuff is already planning.
How to go negative on the Republican candidate it's feeling this -- 2012 it's fear of the alternative.
The Obama campaign said they wanted to quote.
Kill Mitt Romney that you're going to trash him because you don't have any fresh -- Stale tactics to scare voters this Republican -- poverty despite the -- to America's nursing homes.
-- -- -- I don't disguised as deficit reduction plans.
Is really an attempt to impose.
Think radical vision -- -- -- -- megabit election.
About small -- their mother of the founding members of the platters inside.
The 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've heard the last of reverend Jeremiah Wright that's Obama's former pastor more than twenty years.
Well you re emerges with -- even more controversial comments -- last week while delivering several sermons at the metropolitan.
Baptist Church in West Virginia Reverend Wright and typical fashion spewed hate filled comments from the pulpit.
And while the church did post a sermons on its web site.
They refused to give us permission tonight to air them but that's not gonna stop us from revealing exactly what Reverend Wright said.
From calling Thomas Jefferson a -- a file to taking a swipe at Clarence Thomas he covered at all -- race and politics Obama's 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.
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 these shakers and movers of world policy living in a different world from people of color altogether in the -- realize that.
While the better off you going to be joining me now with reaction is former Clinton advisor Dick Morris Dick good to chase our.
Does he realize that the president of the United States is black.
Well and you know it is you know this goes to the -- of the honesty of the president.
And a lot of his controversial appointments of which we are -- -- examine this week in other words.
The very extreme people that he's put in positions of power -- -- these ideas come from what motivated him.
Think he's he's the most extreme and the most powerful he you have good car right.
Saying that white supremacy drivers in 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 given the exact same -- five years ago.
And it shows the concept that electing Obama would promote racial healing is really the opposite of what's -- You know -- -- a couple other things he did mention me by name but that's irrelevant as far as I'm concerned he set about Clarence Thomas.
But he's -- -- some other god.
Took a shot a Clarence Thomas took a shot -- you know saying that fighting for peace is like racing for virginity.
You -- try to.
Look at that line.
Well I -- like that line.
I mean eleven.
Our men and women and armed forces to -- that linemen.
And and DeLeon and believe that that's what people -- It's so obviously untrue stopping Adolph Hitler was the way to stop violence and world board chair.
At the Saddam Hussein was the way to stop.
Genocide against the Iraqi People killing Osama bin Laden was the way to save lives against terrorism.
I military action against violence it's absolutely the best way to preserve the peace.
And just call it great thing for chastity.
There what what was America and Great Britain wrong to take on Nazi Germany and imperial Japan I mean as anyone in the media ever gonna take the time to answer that question I doubt it.
-- Sean you often criticize me for cynical motivation.
And I do not believe that it is -- terrible coincidence.
That Reverend Wright has now surfaced after four years in -- And I think that what may be happening here.
-- is that they may be deliberate orchestrated effort by the Obama white -- to promote.
That gives them the basis for stoking.
An African American turnout in the election.
Well you just look at the signs there and after you connect a couple of dots he begins you realize that this is not a coincidence -- here's travel on Martin thing this thing.
While I ask you about this because he is if he be engaged in the Sandra flock controversy but ignores all leave the people led the donated to him more raise money for him.
That have said outrageous things about women he's tried to make this.
An issue about women you mentioned -- -- Martin that's another case -- attack on the Supreme Court is another one it seems to be like one a week now.
You think that you cynically or perhaps realistically believe this is by design.
And you think that maybe work on the center Reverend Wright.
Well the president of the United States doesn't do anything in an election year unless it's calculated.
And I think the trade Ron Martin thing undoubtedly was.
In terms of communicating with right it's a coincidence that bothers me.
That Greg would speak up at this point but let's we've got a -- column in today's post that's on my.
Read the Obama administration's.
-- reelection strategy.
History hype that turnout 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.
It's -- -- here in there and -- So that it's not that you can promise change to African Americans you can say you live in a white supremacist World Cup can shoot your son anytime he wants to even if he doesn't have a gun.
It's not to tell Latino is I'm gonna really hasten your integration into American society and.
Increase your material wealth instead it's telling them there's this other group of people that hate you and then young people talk about student loans and all kinds of issues for them.
It's fear and then be replacing hope and change.
They'll fight because they can't run on the record.
You know I did see one similarity is that Reverend Wright blamed the media.
And the president blames the ATM machines kiosks tsunamis earthquakes Fox News talk radio -- rove Sean Hannity so -- -- similarities.
Last question Dick what did you think in the RNC ad that we played at that was pretty powerful.
Think it's great I think the more you can.
Use Obama's words against him it's a little bit like -- -- -- of you know what the date was like before that hang over half.
Can apple wouldn't you were still have a great time and -- -- to be really wonderful relationship and then you woke up hadn't had a hangover and decided it wasn't.
Particularly if we go back to some of the things Obama's senate back jobs where -- set I'd rather be a one term president.
That not improve the economy.
-- guaranteeing the unemployment rate would go down if -- stimulus was passed.
I think that the more you can quote Obama is against Obama.
The more you make people understand that they would deceived in 2008.
The hardest thing to do when a guy runs for reelection is to convince people they were wrong the first time.
-- here to tell them he -- you the first time and that's really what the RN CN desk the chorus appreciate your insight as always thanks and they want a cheap shot and coming up.
