PRESS RELEASE: Tongue-Tied White House Correspondent Divulges Obama’s Biggest Fear

NOTE TO PRESS: Please embed my video or provide a direct link to it from your publishing. Thanks!

Little did Helene Cooper know, when she started nervously babbling on "Meet The Press" February 19, 2012, her words would end up exploding on Youtube.  It all started with a Facebook comment, quoting Cooper: 
“Obama thinks he could possibly beat (freudian slip), he thinks he could beat Romney - but he thinks he will crush the other two (Santorum or Gingrich).’ ~ Helene Cooper, N.Y. Times White House Correspondent on ‘Meet the Press,’ Feb. 19th, 2012”.  - Matt Moody, Facebook user
It didn't take long for the comment to be seen by the right person.  Producer/Director, Darin Southam, saw the comment on February 21 and it hit him like a ton of bricks.  He says he, "felt impressed it needed to be seen by the world"; he found a few articles and then searched Youtube to see if the clip was already posted there – nothing.  With more digging, Southam found the video clip and immediately grabbed it from the web, fearing that it might be pulled down.  Southam then worked all through the night, not stopping to eat or sleep, editing the clip into a video he could post to Youtube. For over 12 twilight hours, Southam worked to mash the clip together with several others.

The result?  An impressively persuasive and highly effective video:

Obama ADMITS his biggest fear - facing MITT ROMNEY (he would "Crush Santorum or Gingrich")!!

One Youtube user comments, “EVERYONE NEEDS TO TAKE 5 MINUTES AND REPOST THIS ON THEIR FACEBOOK PAGE, OTHER PAGES, GET THIS VIDEO OUT THERE IF YOU BELIEVE IN AMERICA!”  Southam posted his final edit about 8AM February 22, 2012.  The video was immediately blocked by Youtube, which Darin found strange because he had done a few mash-up videos before with news clips which had not been blocked.  The clip with Helene Cooper’s confession seemed heavily protected.  Familiar with law, as a former law student, Southam disputed the block under "Fair Use" Title 17 U.S.C. section 107. Youtube removed the block, and Darin posted it in a few places on facebook; he then collapsed in exhaustion and slept for only 3 hours, before heading to work at his part-time Video Producer position with Utah Valley University Aviation Science.  When he got to work, he looked to see (within 4 hours) his video had been picked up by "Yahoo: Politics & Government" as well as several other blogs and it already had over 1,000 views, 29 likes, and no dislikes.  Just four days later, February 26, 2012, the video has 15,475 views; 211 likes and only 8 dislikes, which equates to a 96% user approval rating.

Southam has produced several commercials with companies such as InsideOut Development, Myelin Resources, and Adobe.  He specializes in Youtube videos.  Darin is also an accomplished Actor, having appeared in Academy-Award Nominated "127 Hours" with James Franco; as well as the "Disney Channel" with Debbie Reynolds and Lucas Grabeel; and the "Discovery Channel 'I Shouldn’t Be Alive''' series, just to name a few.  In addition to his passions for Cinema, Southam maintains a blog “The Truth About Candor”, where he writes political and social insights with surprising tenacity for a 32 year-old.  In his blog post entitled “Michigan Miracle For Romney” he states, “I think the American people are waking up to the reality of Obama's agenda and manipulation of perception.”  Regarding the overwhelmingly positive user response to his video on Youtube, Darin says, “The American people are burdened and afflicted under the ‘fundamental transformation’ Obama promised to deliver.  We were not meant to be Europe – Europe isn’t working for Europe.  My video is evidence that Americans are fed up with President Obama’s agenda to run this country into the ground and weaken it with endless spending and crippling apologies.  We are ready for a new President in 2012 and the people of this country will be the ones to make that happen.”  Southam's youtube channel is named from a phrase echoed often by the Founding Fathers during their times of difficulty seeking to establish the new nation, "God Save The USA"; his channel, "godsavetheusa2012".

  5. I saw this linked from Slate, and all I could think was 'No shit, Sherlock." Was there anyone in America who didn't know that Santorum or Gingrich would be easier to beat than Romney? I'm an Obama supporter, but I'll be back to this site for the breaking news that the sun rises in the east, and the earth is... wait for it... round.

    1. I pity anyone who is so mislead that they actually are STILL supporting Obama. He is the worst President this country has ever seen. I hope you will read all my posts regarding Romney, it is nearly impossible to not vote Romney after you read them. BUT thank you for confirming what many Republicans are still unable to grasp - Obama's biggest fear, and I mean FEAR, is to face Mitt Romney. That makes him our ONLY choice. Obama fears Romney because Romney was prepared all his life for this very moment in history to do what he was sent here to do, among other things, to save our nation from Obamopression. Romney 2012 - FREEDOM 2012!!

  6. Darin You are wonderful and I am proud to stand by you as a total supporter of Mitt Romney. He is the man for this time and this job. I pray for him all the time. Thank you for all your hard work on the Youtube video. You are amazing and I can't believe what you have done to get the word out. Count on me to contact as many people as I can. We are at a critical and life changing place in the history of America and Obama must go or I fear for America.
    Thanks again,
    Shirley Bouwhuis

If Obama has another 4 years the USA as we know it will be, I fear, gone forever. We the PEOPLE must stop the Obama administration from dismantling our country. Thank you for all you do Shirley!!
