Skip to comments.Help! Looking for an Obama Interview from 2007!
Posted on 10/26/2015 11:20:15 PM PDT by Rurudyne
I've been inactive for a while but now I need your help.
You see, back in 2007 I watched an interview with then candidate Obama wherein he actually discussed what he deemed his great strength as a candidate in the context of answering a question about if people who vote for him will end up being disappointed in a President Obama.
I remember the conversation with reasonable clarity BUT I do not remember who the interview was with, what channel ... though I'm pretty sure that it had to be before the election.
Here is why this is important: what Obama said about his strength as a candidate.
In essence he said that people who voted for him would often be disappointed because he will prove to not be the person that they thought they had voted for.
He said that his being an unknown was a considerable advantage because it meant that, without a ready made public persona, people would be free to invent or imagine their own personal "Obama" to vote for and that they would vote for THAT rather than him.
So when he wasn't THAT he said at the time that they would end up being disappointed ... but of course it would be too late by then.
You may recognize that the "Hope and Change" slogan was in fact perfectly suited to help take full advantage of, and indeed encourage, this kind of personalized delusions about Obama.
I have ever since maintained that here Obama let slip the very core of his deceptive and manipulative campaign strategy for 2007. That his supporters were played upon with great skill and forethought and that it was no mere invention of the moment that he pondered this was a strength that he had.
It was campaign stratagem #1 from the get go. Indeed, it may explain why those who advanced him wanted someone who was largely unknown to run.
Of course while I actually saw the exchange it doesn't matter one jot with a Democrat that I saw it because they haven't ... or if they have asking me to present it is a great way to debunk it without actually dealing with the truth of what I'm saying.
And of course I'm fully aware that I could show them the actual video and most will be able to explain it away ... after all it's just old news and I'm petty for bringing it up (just like so many Democrat misdeeds tend to become old news that they've got over and aren't troubled by those or anything only that bad or a little worse: or how I describe them never jumping out of the proverbial heating frying pan where a frog would).
Does anyone know which interview this was?
I REALLY appreciate any efforts on my behalf!
I think on more than one occasion...what you describe was dragged out by the journalist doing the interview. Most...I think...were early 2007.
On the whole of the matter...this was a guy in 2008 who had a eight-line resume. Other than journalists just grinning and passing by the logic of voting for a guy with just eight lines on his resume...it was comical how it all came down. Hillary herself....was beaten by a guy with almost no resume.
Go back and ask during this whole community adviser work that he did...what awards did he earn in Chicago or at the national level for his work? He was never recognized by anyone in Chicago, or any charity group.
"Change" is long-time commie lingo.
"This president can be a transformative leader (he has that potential in my view), but only if he embraces and fights for a transformative agenda."--Sam Webb, Chairman Communist Party USA
Obama State of the Union: He got the ball rolling:
"Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek"-- BARACK OBAMA
"Barack Obama told supporters that
'change has come to America' as he
claimed victory in a historic presidential election."
A Landslide Mandate For Change
A breakthrough election
Congratulations on an extraordinary history making election!
The tears of joy we all shared as crowds gathered to watch the election results here and throughout the world dramatize the new moment we are in.
July 1, 2009...
Change is Here, Change is Coming
--Sam Webb, National Chair, Communist Party, USA

From Shepard Fairey's official website (ObeyGiant.com):
Check it out! I got a thank you note from Barack Obama. If he is elected, maybe I have a get out of jail free card. All kidding aside, Im honored to be acknowledged by someone so important to the future of our country. Also, the Obama campaign asked me to do a poster illustration for sale on their site. It should be out next week on barackobama.com.-Shepard
Here is the 'thank you' letter Barack Obama sent to Shepard Fairey:
"Dear Shepard, I would like to thank you for using your talent in support of my campaign. The political messages involved in your work have encouraged Americans to believe they can help change the status quo. Your images have a profound effect on people, whether seen in a gallery or on a stop sign. I am privileged to be a part of your artwork and proud to have your support. I wish you continued success and creativity.
Sincerely, Barack Obama.'"
Your images have a profound effect on people"--BH Obama

It may well be from the day he had his coming out party at the Ayers’ home those advancing him already understood how an unknown that looked good, that sounded good and that was “historical” enough could get people to vote for their own fantasies which just happened to share his name on the ballot.
Voting “present” then becomes one way of being there without ever being burdened by being there ... for instance.
Advancement by marking time ... and people on the left sometimes have issues with folks inheriting wealth?
That may excuse being fooled into voting him in in 2008.
what about 2012?
Maybe Google Obsessed A-hole candidate interview 2007?
I think the 2012 race came down to three factors over the loss for Romney. First, in the south...there was no real enthusiasm for the guy. Second, the news media carried the message of his business past and labeled him as a problem. The fact that 2008’s Senator Obama had almost no past never seemed to bother them. Then you come to the third problem...I would say nationally....the Republicans did a lousy marginal job of running the primary episode and getting national enthusiasm behind Romney.
Let’s remember one thing....Hillary was absolutely set to win the 2008 election, and wasted months of effort in Iowa to lose to a no-name Illinois Senator. Presently, she’s set to win the 2016 Presidential primary....ONLY because there’s no real competition.
Here another effect may come into play: the “I didn’t make a mistake” vote.
Or when people vote because their pride is on the line.
This should be a logical consequence of getting people to vote for their fantasies. It is an effect that could explain why people, once they’ve circled the wagons, can become so often entrapped by those they once defended ... like flies in amber. Their emotional investment in being right to ever have done so becomes their chains.
He’d been groomed for awhile with the office with his earlier convention speech and the Grammy award for his first book (almost always awarded to a Leftist in the spoken word category).
same reason i made a lousy trader the first two yearlong attempts.
I am a personal, part time trader and it took two beatings to realize that the market didn’t care about my pride.
Kind of mutual Fairy admiration society don’tcha think?
“”Barack Obama told supporters that ‘change has come to America’ as he claimed victory in a historic presidential election.”
As a young person in the 60s 70s and 80s, I remember hearing about people “moving with the times”. They’d say, “Come on man, you’ve got to get with the times” and so on but you know what?...Not anymore! Fortunately, there is an alternative- Conservatism.
E.D is gone in seconds, this turd had floated around for seven years.
Seven years of cholera.
AFTER he was safely in office, Obama's campaign PR person Anita Dunn (above) said the campaign NEVER answered media questions about Obama.....the campaign let the media know ONLY what THEY wanted them (and voters) to know. (NOTE Dunn's lawyer husband, Robert Bauer, was hired by the Obama admin).
Hillary and Bill had pics of Obama dressed as a Muslim...
Uncle Teddy went ballistic... ordered them not to use the Muslim pics.
Teddy and Caroline later endorsed the befuddled Obama.
Here's Obama at his lying best: As far back as 2008, at the presidential debate in Nashville, Democrat candidate Obama advanced his signature plan that was ultimately enacted (by an historic straight Democrat party-line vote) into the "Affordable Care Act:"
QUOTING OBAMA: "No. 1, let me just repeat, if youve got a health care plan that you like, you can keep it. All Im going to do is help you to lower the premiums on it. Youll still have choice of doctor.
Repeated over and over by lock-stepping Democrats--conning
Americans into believing they'd save $2500.00 on healthcare costs.
The minute Obama/Valerie/Rahm/Axelrod/Geithner, and that Practiced bunch of Chicago criminals, landed in the WH they did two things that were apparently crucial to their evil plans
(a) they took control of the US Census;
(b) Obama placed his COS Rahm Emanuel in control of the US Dept of the Treasury (cabinet-level agency oversees IRS).
THE SMOKING GUN---WSJ REPORT--On Jan 20, 2009 Timothy Geithner was appointed Obama's Secy of the Treasury. But within three weeks, the Obama White House tightened its grip on Treasury. Obama put his COS, Rahm Emanuel, in charge of Treasury---Rahm Emanuel's dual role was an unusual move.
When he got to Treasury, WH COS Rahm Emanuel was so involved in the inner workings of the Treasury that the phrase "Rahm wants it" had become an unofficial mantra among subservient govt staffers, prostrate in obeisance, scurrying to accede to Rahm's wishes, according to Treasury government officials. Reported by WSJ / 05/31/09
Valerie's wire-transfers to offshore banks tell the tale.
