VIDEO: Rediscovered 2004 Senate ad shows Obama pitching similar rhetorical themes
The Daily Caller ^ | 11/06/2011 | Neil Munro

A rediscovered video from Barack Obama’s 2004 Senate race shows him road-testing his current rhetorical techniques, pitching far-left policies, and depicting business and the marketplace as negative forces.

“We all have a set of mutual obligations towards each other — we are our brother’s keeper, we are our sister’s keeper — and that those mutual obligations have to express themselves through government policies,” he said at the tail end of a soft-focus, five-minute autobiographical video entitled “Introducing Barack Obama” that he released during his 2004 campaign for U.S. Senate.

Make sure you catch the part where Obama says he and Michelle have been "active" in their church -- and then mentions by name the Chicago church where Jeremiah Wright was pastor.

....we are our brother’s keeper, we are our sister’s keeper....

Except when they actually ARE your brother, sister, undocumented aunt, or drunk uncle.

The media didn’t bring that to voters’ attention four years later.

But they’re obsessed with Herman Cain’s non-existent sex harrassment scandal.

Go figure.

I can’t believe this nobody who just appeared out of thin air is POTUS. I forget how surreal his ascension has been.

I wonder if they will go after Gingrich’s divorce documents as they did Ryan’s? And, why is it that Ryan’s child custody documents were made public, yet Obama can have his school records withheld from view? They play very dirty and there really seems to be a pattern. The play of choice seems to be to remove opponents before the race even begins.

One wonders - but it is not so surprising when considering that Zbigniew Brzezinski began recruiting Obama back when he was still in college. That explains why Obama rose so fast.

Woah, never heard that before. Do you have a source I can read to get up to speed on this?

Barack Hussein Obama does not believe in freedom or in America.

Zbigniew Brzezinski

I've always hated that guy. Even when I was a young skull full of mush, I knew he was a bad actor.

The source to this assertion might be too controversial for this forum but you can visit a link to his book where he makes the allegation. All I know is that it does explain how Obama rose so fast.

He cites his attendance at Trinity United Church of Christ without mentioning the controversial pastor, Jeremiah Wright.

He voted "present" at church, too.

Obama’s foreign policy advisor and vocal supporter is Zbigniew Brzezinski, Jimmy Carter’s national security advisor, who says that Obama offers ‘a new definition of America’s role in the world’.

Brzezinski’s foreign ‘policy’ during the Carter administration, as he has since admitted without regret, was to entice the Soviet Union to invade Afghanistan in December, 1979. The idea, he said, was to weaken their rival superpower and the result was a ten-year occupation that cost the lives of an estimated 1.3 million Afghans and spawned the Mujahedin, Taliban and Osama bin Laden.

he’s now advising Barack Obama on foreign policy ...

Well this description of the book from the link sounds accurate:

"The Making of a Manchurian Candidate… Barack Obama is a troubled personality, the megalomaniac front man for a postmodern coup by intelligence agencies using fake polls, mobs of adolescents, super-rich backers, and orchestrated media hysteria to short-circuit normal politics and seize power."

Obama - The Postmodern Coup: Making of a Manchurian Candidate by Webster Griffin Tarpley

As a matter of fact, I think fake polls and orchestrated media hype are being used to push Romney to the front at this time.
