1. That would explain why it was news to Andrew Breitbart.

I don't think he was a real avid PBS watcher.

2. I'm still trying to figure out why it could be contraverisal

Are we supposed to believe only whites should be on the board?

8. I can't figure it out either.

Perhaps it was controversial at the time (1990) because Derrick Bell was protesting Harvard ... but it's 2012, so who cares?

Seriously ... Derrick Bell was upset because Harvard "failed to offer tenure to women of color as law school professors." That's not a radical position for Obama to support. Actually, I'm proud of him for standing up to Harvard!

3. So ... Breitbart's "secret tape" of Obama was never a secret at all.

Why am I not surprised?

7. They knew that

Breitbart was just trying to re-package it.

They got nothing.

13. But there was no hug. For the love of G-d they withheld the hug from us. Those evil spineless

democrats edited out the hug and for that President Obama will be defeated!

14. If I didn't know this was supposed to show something bad about Obama...

I would have thought that a pro-Obama person put this out to promote him and show that he has always been a good speaker and that his heart has always been in the right place. It really makes Obama look good.
