That was lame

Please see below the instant reaction to the latest lame Drudge/Hannity desperation tactics.

Tucker Carlson actually covered Obama's quiet riot speech on his old MSNBC show http://nbcnews.to/QMthLf

Andrew Kaczynski ‏@BuzzFeedAndrew
This speech was actually covered on Tucker Carlson's MSNBC show Tucker in 2007 oddly enough.

GAMECHANGER - Obama, in Drudge video, says impoverished communities need help regardless of whether or not they're hit by hurricanes

Nate Silver ‏@fivethirtyeight
The fact that Drudge is trying to make news would weigh against the hypothesis that the polls are tightening.

Sarah Reese Jones ‏@srjones66
HOW YOU CAN TELL THEY ARE LOSING: Fox and Drudge stoop down to Rev Wright again. FYI, this is not working, again.

Jared Keller ‏@jaredbkeller
That's it? RT @myurow: Here's the Reverend Wright clip Drudge and Fox are teasing: http://bit.ly/T06uYM

Tim Dickinson ‏@7im  I believe this is what they call "grasping at straws"

Ben Smith ‏@BuzzFeedBen
This stuff has all been on YouTube since the last campaign, Obama's race, religion, pastor known a bit longer

Sam Stein ‏@samsteinhp
nevermind, the part Drudge is teasing about Rev Wright has been on youtube since 2008 http://youtu.be/geSRuNtlg24

Stefan Becket ‏@stefanjbecket
That was lame.

Farhad Manjoo ‏@fmanjoo
If Drudge/Hannity really are touting this speech they're idiots. It's a fantastic speech. We should be proud a president made this speech.

So basically the news in the Hampton Roads video is that Obama is black, opposed the Iraq War, & thought NOLA was neglected after Katrina.

Jason Linkins ‏@dceiver
This is probably just a new dubstep version of the Hampton Roads speech.

Dave Zirin ‏@EdgeofSports
According to the death pornographers at @buzzfeed, the "new Obama video" has been online since 2007. A speech at Hampton.

Michael Winship ‏@MichaelWinship
Extrapolating from Drudge headlines, shocking Obama tape is same as one popped up in 2008 campaign from 2007 Hampton U. convocation. 0 new.

sethdmichaels ‏@sethdmichaels
sooooo, you basically already have to think Obama is bent on revenge for racial grievance for this video to bother you: http://bit.ly/QVPG5E

Jake Sherman ‏@JakeSherman
here's where conservative critics lashed out against the Obama speech drudge is pimping …. but this was 2007 http://bit.ly/QCo1pX

Walter Shapiro ‏@waltershapiroPD
Since Drudge & Co. believe Rev. Wright is potent GOP weapon, remember: No incumbent president has lost votes over anything pre-White House.
