NEW - Video from San Francisco - Obama jokes about small town hope
Politico ^ | April 12, 2008 | Ben Smith

Posted on 04/12/2008 5:01:49 PM PDT by renotse

Here's a clip taken by somebody at the San Francisco event; it's the passage just before the lines everyone is now focused on, in which he talks about the skepticism he encounters:

Here's how it is: in a lot of these communities in big industrial states like Ohio and Pennsylvania, people have been beaten down so long, and they feel so betrayed by government, and when they hear a pitch that is premised on not being cynical about government, then a part of them just doesn't buy it. And when it's delivered by -- it's true that when it's delivered by a 46-year-old black man named Barack Obama (laugher), then that adds another layer of skepticism.

Well I was born in a small town
And I live in a small town
Prob’ly die in a small town
Oh, those small communities

All my friends are so small town
My parents live in the same small town
My job is so small town
Provides little opportunity

Educated in a small town
Taught the fear of Jesus in a small town
Used to daydream in that small town
Another boring romantic that’s me

But I’ve seen it all in a small town
Had myself a ball in a small town
Married an L.A. doll and brought her to this small town
Now she’s small town just like me

No I cannot forget where it is that I come from
I cannot forget the people who love me
Yeah, I can be myself here in this small town
And people let me be just what I want to be

Got nothing against a big town
Still hayseed enough to say
Look who’s in the big town
But my bed is in a small town
Oh, and that’s good enough for me

Well I was born in a small town
And I can breath in a small town
Gonna die in this small town
And that’s prob’ly where they’ll bury me

Small towns across PA are going to bury Barrack I think! John Cougar, even though you are a raving lib, your lyrics hit home today.

At least he’s owning up to the fact that his message of hope and change is just a slick sales “pitch,” and that many sensible people aren’t “buying” from the shyster.

It looks like the previous published Gaffe may have been the tip of an iceberg

And, more and more, it looks like the Obama fundraiser was penetrated by a Hillary operative. And it's being exploited by some pros.

First, an audio tape with the words -- which will prove damning in the Pennsylvania and Indiana races.

Now, after the Obama campaign has responded, the video follows -- with even more damning words.

Obama is a very ignorant and uninformed man -- an empty suit, as it were -- with an over-inflated ego. His wife is even more ignorant and uninformed, with an even larger ego. There's no way these people should be allowed to lead the free world.

And, now, they won't...

“and they feel so betrayed by government”

I think the people that are betrayed most by government, are the people with lives going nowhere living on Government programs, and taxpayers who work hard to pay for these people.

In 1981 ... Obama visited his mother and sister Maya in Indonesia. After that visit, Obama traveled to Pakistan with a friend from college whose family was from there.

The Obama campaign says Obama was in Pakistan for about three weeks, staying with his friend's family in Karachi ...

"Apparently, according to the Obama campaign, In 1981 -- the year Obama transferred from Occidental College to Columbia University -- Obama visited his mother and sister Maya in Indonesia. After that visit, Obama traveled to Pakistan with a friend from college whose family was from there. The Obama campaign says Obama was in Pakistan for about three weeks, staying with his friend's family in Karachi and also visiting Hyderabad in Southern India."

Whew !! that's a relief ... Karachi and southern India.

A N D

What everyone needs to know is just whom he was speaking those bitter word to on April 6th. It was the MOST wealthy of the wealthy in San Francisco .. the homes of 3 billionaires, as documented below. And the mainstream press were absent, because this sojourn was off calendar... not noted in news coverage (at least not truthfully about the contributors), no photos. But an enterprising sleuth captured some really good stuff, and, of course, someone in there taped it, which is how it got out at all.

Obama Visits Billionaires Row

San Francisco, April 6, 2008

On April 6, 2008, Barack Obama visited the San Francisco region, zipping from event to event all day long, from one end of the Bay Area to the other.

What? you might ask. How did I miss that? If only I had known, I would have gone to see him.

Well, there's a reason you didn't know about it. Obama didn't want you to know about it. Because the events he was attending weren't for people like you.

They were for people with lots and lots of money, who use that money to gain access and influence with politicians -- especially politicians who might become president.

So although the San Francisco Bay Area is probably the most pro-Obama section of the entire country, with Obama signs and stickers visible everywhere you turn, when Obama himself actually visited his electoral home base, he ignored the hoi polloi -- all the little people who swoon over him -- and instead, he spent the entire day with the rich.

~~~~

No mainstream was present, that's why when these "bitter" comments were made, they were in audio form only .. no press photogs.

This is what makes his comments all the more arrogant and revealing (if someone picks up on it), because this man of the people was identifying with THEM, the glitterati, and looking down on the peons .. who are so ignorant and pathetically peasantish as to value religion and the 2nd amendment and security at the borders. I've sent this to Rush .. hope he puts it out there... or somebody.

~~~~ WHAT OBAMA REALLY SAID - SHOWING THE EVENT. NOTE THE 'GOOD FOR US' COMMENT. He IS one of them in his mind.

Well!! Just found this -- MUST LISTEN ...YOU TUBE: SAVAGE IS ON TO HIM

A few teasers:

MUST read .... the whole article above ... with all the pretty pictures.

WOW -- Hillary's people got this video together fast ..good music, though.

Farrakhan and Obama’s pastor attend judge’s funeral

CHICAGO (AP) Prominent religious leaders including Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan and the Rev. Jeremiah Wright have attended funeral services in Chicago for a former judge and longtime civil rights attorney.

Officials at Trinity United Church of Christ say R. Eugene Pincham was remembered as a devoted husband, dedicated father and advocate for the poor.

Wright, the minister of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, delivered the eulogy at the South Side church where he’s head pastor, but will retire June 1.

Wright and the church have faced scrutiny after short video clips of his more fiery remarks surfaced online.

The funeral services were closed to reporters.

Officials say the megachurch’s 2,500-seats were filled with mourners.

Pincham died earlier this month following a long illness. He was 82.
