“From today through Election Day, November 6, 2012, we will vet this president–and his rivals.”
Monday was the day the Andrew Breitbart intended his family of Web Sites would be transformed. In honor of his memory, it happened. The unified look is powerful. Go ahead and check it out. A key focus for today is the explanation of Andrew’s mission and launching of his project to vet Barak Obama and his rivals. Let the Breitbart team explain:
Prior to his passing, Andrew Breitbart said that the mission of the Breitbart empire was to exemplify the free and fearless press that our Constitution protects–but which, increasingly, the mainstream media denies us.
“Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?” – “Who guards the guardians?” Andrew saw himself in that role—as a guardian protecting Americans from the left’s “objective” loyal scribes.
Andrew wanted to do what the mainstream media would not. First and foremost: Andrew pledged to vet President Barack H. Obama.
Andrew did not want to re-litigate the 2008 election. Nor did he want to let Republicans off the hook. Instead, he wanted to show that the media had failed in its most basic duty: to uncover the truth, and hold those in power accountable, regardless of party.
From today through Election Day, November 6, 2012, we will vet this president–and his rivals.
They begin with a column Andrew wrote last week in preparation for yesterday’s Big relaunch.

Obama was not only in the audience, but also took the stage after one performance, participating in a panel discussion that was advertised in the poster for the play.
