Skip to comments.NEW - Video from San Francisco - Obama jokes about small town hope
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.
TRANSLATION: "they are just dumb, racist hicks .... (laugher)"
Anyone have the whole video with the included lines about small town folks, guns etc..
“The Huffington Post’s Mayhill Fowler reports that, at that same San Francisco fundraiser where Obama revealed his previously unknown college sojourn to Pakistan...”
I don’t think he was expecting a large percentage of the small town America vote anyway, but now...
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.
I’m sure am glad he’s trying to keep race outta this. /s
There was once a time, long ago when I liked Mellencamp.
I listened to this buffoon and I can't see or hear a difference between what he said and what his mentor the Rev. Wright says every Sunday.
Yeah. Hillary and Obama OR Obama and Hillary will be unbeatable........................
HAHA!! So funny.
I’m just glad America is starting to see him for what he is.
This deserves a thread of its own.
When Muslim Southern Thais do that, they usually come home just to start killing.
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...
Those Chevy ads were the final nails in the coffin.
Message: white liberal audience thinks the non-Obama supporters are bigots.
Those Chevy ads ruined the 2006 MLB playoffs for me. That and the Mets losing the NLCS in seven games to the worst team to have ever won a World Series.
“Anyone have the whole video with the included lines about small town folks, guns etc..”
That’s what I was wondering.
Maybe the filmer is looking for big bucks for the best stuff, this is just a teaser.
“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.
This just might allow Hillary to get the nomination. We continue to hurtle to the ultimate meltdown, complete with race riots and violence. I’m not enjoying this like some ... I think its terrible for our country.
Obama Visits Billionaires RowCompare those pictures with the new Flickr gallery which Ben Smith just linked to:
Flickr: Photos & Video from glenniaIn particular, is this boy in the Zombie Time exterior photo:
the same as this boy in the Flickr interior photo?
that must have been his white side slipping out.... Amazing lets get beyond race and then .... using his blackness to make a point...
Dang...they're just like me (a life-long city slicker). I don't trust these lying politicians either...ESPECIALLY THESE TWO...
Over at Youtube there is/was a 39 second clip from the SF meet. Youtube says it was removed “by the user.”
I looked at the user’s home page. A Barack supporter.
Exactly how I interpret it!
Im sure am glad hes trying to keep race outta this.
Not! this video is not the same event.
Exactly...unless it was Agent 99, one of Rush's 'Operation Chaos' agents...
Hey Jerry, LOOK! Hillary's calling Obama an Elitist!
Whew !! that's a relief ... Karachi and southern India.

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.
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.
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.
Thanks,, Is that one of them thar limousine liberal limos.. ? wow, I want one..
MEMORIALIZED IN SONG - http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2000733/posts
maybe it is here.
Look at #35
Excellent post STARWISE.
The city I live in used to be called “The City of Millionares”, many cattlemen, ranchers, oilmen, etc. We have had President Bush, ex Bush, Governor Perry, etc come here in the same manner and we would read about it in the newspaper the next morning, lol.
This one is from the internet. No mainstreams had this when it happened.
Thank God for the internet .. ;) Keep that dammmmm fairness doctrine outta here!
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.
Wait...I thought his donations were so amazing because they were from a massive amount of people in small amounts!? It appears it’s more like small amount of people in massive amounts.
Thanks for the Savage link. Savage got it right.
Savage: Obama insults Penn. voters
Come on, he did it on purpose... he’s calling them dumb at the same time. Like mumsie said, if someone comes to you downing someone, they’ll down you somewhere else.
Coming soon, the speech... or overdue conversion:
