"Wait til' they see what happens March 1st."
Those words were uttered by Andrew Breitbart to journalist Lawrence Sinclair three weeks ago at a political event in Washington, D.C.
Apparently, the man behind BigGovernment.com, BigJournalism.com, and BigHollywood.com was about to drop the equivalent of an atom bomb on President Barack Obama's reelection hopes. Is it purely coincidental he died just hours before the release of the bombshell?
Friends of the online entrepreneur and Tea Party leader are saying he did, in fact, have a pre-existing heart problem. Nevertheless, it's completely natural for people to wonder if foul play was involved. This was a 43-year-old man full of vitality.
If Breitbart's lieutenants don't release the video, supposedly of Obama in college, alongside domestic terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, conspiracy theories will continue to abound. You can call Breitbart many things, but he didn't make false promises.
During a speech at the CPAC convention last month, the "Big Hollywood" chief mentioned the mystery tapes, to the delight of the crowd gathered.
"I've got video from his college days that show you why racial division and class warfare are central to what hope and change was sold in 2008," he said.
Where are the tapes now? When will they be disclosed to the public?
