Obama raises, knocks down Palin quote
The Politico ^ | September 21, 2011 | Alexander Burns

Posted on 09/21/2011 6:42:10 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

President Barack Obama borrowed a phrase from one of his harshest opponents last night, telling supporters at a New York fundraiser that “all that hopey changey stuff” from the 2008 campaign “was real.”

The “hopey changey” term comes from a certain former Alaska governor and 2008-vintage Obama opponent. At a tea party convention in Nasvhille last year, Sarah Palin said she wanted to ask Obama’s supporters: “How’s that hopey changey thing working out for ya?”

Obama’s belated response went like this, according to last night’s pool report from the Gotham Theater:

“All that hopey changey stuff, as they say? That was real. It wasn’t something ...it was real, you could feel it. You know it. It’s still there. Even in the midst of this hardship. But it’s hard. When I was in Grant Park that night, I warned everybody this was going to be hard, this wasn’t the end it was the beginning.”

Now remember: One of these individuals is a private citizen, a housewife sitting in her living room with her laptop, the other is the current de facto PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!! Did LBJ, Nixon, Dubya, JFK, Truman, Reagan or Ike direct their comments, time-after-time, to private citizens who criticized their policies? Buehler? Buehler?

I cannot think of any other “private citizen”, who by simply saying “Yes” would become the leading contender for the Republican Party nomination.

“...this wasn’t the end it was the beginning...”

Come noon eastern on January 20, 2013, it will be the end of an error and the beginning of this nation’s awakening from its self-imposed four year nightmare.

I noticed he never really answered the question. Precisely because it's not working out at all. It was real? You could feel it?

I've been drunk before. That was real.....and temporary. I also remember the massive hangover and the fact I cannot stand the smell of tequila anymore. That's also real.....and permanent.

All that hopey changey stuff. . .It’s still there.

Yes, and it's still killing America. Fortunately, ZerO, based on your recent poll numbers, Americans are finally waking up to what you really are.

Delusion driven by ego, that typical strongman attitude you see in the Turd World countries. He’s a President-for-life wannabe.

"When I was in Grant Park that night, I warned everybody this was going to be hard, this wasn’t the end it was the beginning.”

So Obama is admitting that he created this hardship in order to "fundamentally change" the US? And it's NOT Bushs fault? Imagine that!!!

Well Obama is right in that it will be difficult, but he is wrong in implying that it will ever get better. Obamanamics in the Obamanation isn’t pretty, but the end goal is equality (in misery) for everyone!

What I want to know is, does “change” map directly to “tax” and “hope” to “spend”, or is the formula more complex?

Because “hope and change” is nothing but “tax and spend” all over again, on steroids.

A bit of refinement - we’re supposed to judge him by his STATED intentions.
His real “intentions” are not as he states.
He “hopes” to “change” America from a capitalist to a communist society.

Gov Palin not only lives in Barry's head but she's burrowed under his skin as well. He tries to ignore her and not to scratch but sometimes he just can't help himself.
