Posted on 10/02/2012 6:39:51 PM PDT by Behind Liberal Lines
Based on the transcript posted by the Chicago Sun Times, here are the 5 quotes from then Senator Obama’s 2007 speech at Hampton University that are most likely to raise eyebrows:
It appears that President Obama went off script when he delivered the speech, but if he went on to deliver these remarks as written, I imagine they will cause some controversy.
It just sounds funny coming from a Muslim , thats all
Because getting “free shit” trumps all else
That's one topic I've rarely seen discussed: Jesse Jackson's (1984) candidacy vs. BO's candidacy.
Jackson was the second African-American (after Shirley Chisholm) to mount a nationwide campaign for the presidency, and he was the first African-American candidate to be a serious contender. He got 3.5 million votes during the primaries, third behind Hart and Mondale. He won the primaries in Virginia, South Carolina, and Louisiana, and split Mississippi, where there were two separate contests for Democratic delegates. Through the primaries, Jackson helped confirm the black electorate's importance to the Democratic Party in the South at the time. During the campaign, however, Jackson made an off-the-cuff reference to Jews as "Hymies" and New York City as "Hymietown," for which he later apologized. Nonetheless, the remark was widely publicized, and derailed his campaign for the nomination. Jackson ended up winning 21% of the national primary vote but received only 8% of the delegates to the national convention, and he initially charged that his campaign was hurt by the same party rules that allowed Mondale to win. He also poured scorn on Mondale, saying that Hubert Humphrey was the "last significant politician out of the St. Paul-Minneapolis" area.
And will the GOP use ANY of the hundreds of quotes that would sink ANY other candidate? NO THEY WONT
The average American is an undereducated idiot. VEY few even know what;s really going on . They thing NBC CBS etc are real news..%50 of the population is TOTALLY brainwashed .we’re in trouble. Beating Obama is only step one. We have to re educate an entire nation
If Jeramiah Wright introduced Barack Hussein to Christ at such a late age what did he believe up until then and did it involve the use of a prayer rug. Unfortunately the majority of blacks in America will slap him on the back and approve of his use of ebonics in this speech. Much like the way they patted Bill Clinton on the back and celebrated him when he was Gettin Some.
Wright introduced him to the “Social Justice” Jesus that “requires the COMMUNITY TO BE SAVED BEFORE I CAN BE SAVED,” said Barack Hussein Obama. He has said so explicitly on numerous occasions. I don’t know about you, but that ain’t the Jesus I met in the Bible. He is the one I have an INDIVIDUAL relationship with. He said, “No one comes to the father...” not “none of ya’ll”. Time and again I can quaote you til the cows come home, there is NOTHING Jesus said about a “corporate relationship” or response to such a fantasy. This is the same old apostasy Paul and Peter repeatedly warned against saying, “anyone preaching another gospel...” These sort come not from the Father but from the other guy, the one who stalks the earth looking for whom he can devour, the “Father of Lies”. Puts Zero in company with his own kind, I would say. Liars.
I’d like to know where Obama was before he met Wright. Wright was becoming a marxist at that time, with ties to Castro’s Cuba and soon, to Libya and Qaddaffi (never explored by the media).
Wright is the professional religious con-man like Michael Lerner, Jim Wallis, etc. In the 1800’s, he would have been a partner with P. T. Barnum.
“There’s a sucker born every minute”.
None of these quotes sound controversial, really, and could have been said by a (not too conservative) Republican.
It’s magnificent and a huge tell, the worthless media crips will go crazy with the ‘dats racccisst’ rap.
National politician is a panderer and a phony, complete story at 11.
Those quotes are softened considerably from his actual statements.
Not a big story, just a rehash, will not move the needle.
But, the irony of an overwhelming number of white people voting for a mixed race black man to be the "great uniter" and end the racial divide and then, unexpectedly, got obama instead, who has done his best to move society, race relations and everything else backwards, is overwhelming all by itself.
Who says God doesn't have a sense of humor?
George Bush pushed the ‘E’s’ too. Same for Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The globalists don’t think there is anything wrong with this statement and in fact pick candidates who will support it.
There are true crimes committed, most recently the revelations of the Libyan embassy, Fast and Furious, and yes, forged documents used as qualification documents for office.
Why don’t people demand accountability for all those? Why chase after a speech (which could be considered political free speech) when both parties are guilty of following the agenda behind it?
Isn’t it odd that Cheryl Saban, wife of the owner of Univision, was reported just yesterday to get a bribe in the guise of a position of representative to the United Nations?
No wonder the government is broke. All these bribes and payoffs are adding up.
Do you think any of this is prosecutable? Shouldn’t that be the focus to bring the country back on track from the socialist state shambles its become?
I think some independents could be swayed by this video. That's IF they see it...
it’s not really 47%. there is a large number, something like 15%, of people polled who claim to be uncommitted or still yet to decide.
the video was played on Sean Hannity’s show. my husband heard it and said it’s VERY racist.
"When Hurricane Andrew struck Florida, people said 'Look at this devastation! We don't expect you to come up with your own money... here!'"
"What's happening down in New Orleans? Where's your dollar? Where's your Stafford Act money? Makes no sense."
"Tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out." **sustained applause from the crowd**
"Tells me that somehow the people down in New Orleans... they don't care about as much."
So what does the "Tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out." statement mean? It certainly got a reaction from the crowd...
