Obama: 'Hopey changey stuff' was real (Quotes Palin at NYC fundraiser)
UPI ^ | Tuesday, September 20, 2011

Posted on 09/20/2011 8:01:17 PM PDT by kristinn

U.S. President Barack Obama said Tuesday "all that hopey changey stuff" from his 2008 campaign "was real" and it's "still there."

Speaking to an audience at a political fundraiser in New York, Obama recalled a line from a speech by 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin in which she ridiculed the themes of his presidential campaign by referring to "hopey changey stuff." Without mentioning Palin by name, he told his audience Tuesday: "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," he said.

"I need your help to finish what we started in 2008."

Bet he did not remind the audience of the rest of the quotation, "So how is that hopey changey stuff working out for you?"

It's OK, everyone who is not drinking the Kool-Aid can supply the rest on their own.

Way to go,Bammy. Remind the jury of how miserable we've become.

Typical modus operandi, make a joke about a real issue(everything got worse) and laugh about it with your buddies and the media, and now it’s never again to be mentioned in as a serious conversation topic.

Mr. President, when it comes to your administration, as a great man once said, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.

Seems to be working thus far.

God help the United States of America if this guy gets re-elected..he wants to finish the country off completely..he’s probably not satisfied with how downhill this country is right now, he wants to put the final nail in the coffin

All the news reads like satire today. You don’t want to think an actual POTUS would speak this kind of drivel. Obama is either self-medicating or losing his tenuous grip on even his brand of realty. Scary stuff.

You are right. I actualy believe he’s pushing a ‘scorched earth’ agenda...he know he’s done, he’s going to do his best to take everything and everyone down with him.

He puts out a speech on a plan that he wants signed NOW...but won’t be completely written until next month, is chock full of all kinds of things he KNOWS will be DOA. He just wants to trash the other side when they say no.

Anything he can pull off via executive order during any recesses, he will do. Justice is off chasing Murdoch, instead of looking inward..or at least at Solyndra, smokescreenafter smokescreen.

“He actually believes his own propaganda.”

Yes. It is only recently that he has faced opposition of any kind in his public adult life. He is free jumping on warming glaciers, expecting us to use extreme measures to protect or save him if he slips.

Enemedia enables him. Their money is running out now that their credibility is gone.

It’s all he has. He will never be better than he was during the 08 campaign where people annointed him as the chosen one and fainted in his presence. The secret to his 08 success was simple.... he was anything people could imagine because he truly had no record and so little was known about his background.

Now he has an abysmal record and people see him for who he is.... that is change they don’t want to believe in.

He is a failure. I don’t expect him to admit that and he will not resign unless Soros and the other powerbrokers among the liberal elite tell him it’s over. They spent lots of money on the manchild and they have a vested interest in protecting their investment. However, if they decide he can’t win they will run another progressive to protect their interests.

The next few months will be interesting. I really don’t think Obama can win. The only scenario that might be favorable would be a 3rd party candidate running that could gain 10% of the popular vote. That assumes (not looking good right now) that the democratic machine can get out the zombies and dead people to vote for him. The media is starting to turn on him but pay attention to the big money on the left in the next few months.

I’m so embarrassed that this man was elected as the president. I’ve never heard a president ridicule others like this POS does. And, he thinks its cute. It isn’t cute, it slimy and low life.

I want him defeated in 2012 and hope I never have to endure his voice or stupid speeches ever again.
