Never Before Seen Video Shows Obama Revealing The Real Origin Of His Book Title
Nov. 29, 2011, 8:32 AM
The Daily Caller's Nicholas Ballasy has obtained this video of then-Sen. Barack Obama revealing in 2006 the true origin of his book title "The Audacity Of Hope."
But I tell you what: Im confessing to all of you here today its a big crowd, 2,000 people Im confessing in front of the TV cameras: I actually stole this line from my pastor, Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.
Wright, of course, is the controversial pastor Obama had to distance himself from after video surfaced of Wright shouting "God Damn America."
From The Daily Caller's transcript:
His premise was simple," Obama said. He said, look, the easiest thing in the world to do is to feel cynical, easiest thing in the world is to find refuge in cynicism because theres so much good reason as you look around to feel dispirited. You open up the newspapers, you watch the news, theres war, theres poverty, theres ignorance, theres conflict, theres famine, theres strife, and so its natural for many of us to at some point say to ourselves, you know what, not much is going to change."
...And he said the hard thing to do, the thing that requires risk, the thing that requires a sense of boldness, audacity, is to hope, to recognize that somehow the world as it is is not the world as it has to be; that its possible for us to recognize a stake in each other and to have mutual responsibility for each other and maybe not make a perfect world but to make it better for the next generation.

I thought it was common knowledge that Obama got the title from a sermon of Wright’s.
Reopen the unsolved murder of Donald Young. No justice, no peace.
And, in turn, the good Rev. Wright will reveal from whom he borrowed the term “G*d D*m* America!”
Yes, but then he went back to sleep and wasn’t paying attention, like he was the other 20 years he was in Wright’s congregation, so no biggie.
Only a dark twisted mind would consider hope to be audacious.
One of the funniest cartoons that was circulating in 2008 was the one of BO sitting in the “Rev” Wright’s church with a paper bag over his head. Really funny!
Still don’t know much about the guy....but its curious that I know EVERYTHING about Cain & Newt...
He’s still wearing a paper bag over his head, though now it has eye holes so he can read the Teleprompter.
Man, I've heard of cruising through life before, but this guy takes the cake.
Ha! How true!
“Still dont know much about the guy....but its curious that I know EVERYTHING about Cain & Newt...”
That is because they both did more than vote “ PRESENT “.
As a candidate, Zero was an enigma.
As a potential candidate , he was an orator with a teleprompter.
As a newly elected executive, he was “the Messiah”.
As a ‘leader from behind’, he was a dud , and created divisiveness and ‘class warfare’.
As a potential re-election candidate with his history of alledged successes , he is a ... ‘has-been’.
As a former-President he will return to community organizing and be a political commentator, and make millions as a ‘one term President’ with a much improved golf-game.
His legacy will be to blame others for his failures, and will be known as the “Whineing President
Let’s go, Social Media Warriors and spread the TRUTH that the MSMedia wants to hide!
I remember in the 60's, 70's & 80's continuously laughing at Pravda.
Now I laugh at the COMMIE western media.
I'm actually beginning to wonder if we didn't lose the Cold War...the Communists are now running the US Government
Up is down and down is up!!
The painting depicts a harpist, Revernd Wright explained, a woman who at first glance appears to be sitting atop a great mountaintop. Until you take a closer look and see that the woman is bruised and bloodied, dressed in tattered rags, the harp reduced to a single frayed string. Your eye is then drawn down to the scene below, down to the valley below, where everywhere are the ravages of famine, the drumbeat of war, a world groaning under strife and deprivation.
It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year, where white folks greed runs a world in need, apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere
Thats the world! On which hope sits.
Curious we still know nothing about who or where Obama came from.
But we know everything from birth to present about Sarah Palin.
Others at the kitchen table were probably Ayers and Oprah.
That’s great! I knew someone would find it. Thanks!
