Who Gave Obama his Rising Star and Why? The 2004 keynote address.
Red South

Posted on 07/18/2009 11:32:10 AM PDT by RED SOUTH

The one thing that bugs me the most about the rise of Barry Soetoro AKA Barack Obama is this. Who decided to give a state legislature running for U.S. Senate the prime spot of delivering the 2004 democratic convention keynote address and why?

This is usually reserved for the likes of the Mario Cuomo or Ann Richards of the party. Governors already elected to higher office with rising stars. Not a state legislature with an empty record.

Let me quote Barry Soetoro. "The process by which I was selected ... remains something of a mystery to me." It's a mystery to me too , Barry.

Maybe dumb luck for Soetoro Obama but probally more like a puppet in the making. So who is the puppet master?

Since it was John Kerry’s nomination, didn’t John Kerry have a big say in who would give the keynote address?

If not for Obama giving that keynote address, he wouldn’t have had the national exposure which led him to be considered a serious future presidential candidate.

I have heard Barry Soetoro/Obama has been a long time in the making. Since 1992.

Kerry and Shrum said Obama sucked so bad in the practice run they considered pulling him. But Satan probably helped him and there you go.

Who financed his Ivy League education?

Sure, I understand he was “being groomed,” but why him in particular? There are lots of people out there who would make viable candidates.

Why so much interest for some mixed race kid born of a single mother?

I’m guessing somebody’s in his lineage who has a lot of pull but doesn’t want to publicize the fact.

Frank Marshal Davis, the Communist, had been working on Barry for longer than that!

I have always loved conspiracy plots tho reluctantly didn’t believe they were really true.

In the last few years it really does seem like there are people behind the scenes pulling the strings. It might be as simple as a communist friend of mine once said.

He agreed that the Commies were involved in a conspiracy tho he was not involved in it. He called it an unorganized conspiracy in which people knew what others were doing and were working to the same purpose but were not actually meeting in back rooms.

I am not even certain that the Bilderbergers etc. are not for real as a world controlling group.

Just too many thinks seem to fit. For one thing Obama won both his first elections because of court decisions which practically gave him the elections.

Obama would never have given that speech or won the White House if John-John’s plane hadn’t gone down...IMO.

You need to go back a lot further than that. At least as far as his encounters as kid with communist Frank Marshall Davis.

I’ve read sevaral times over the Clinton machine was behind John John’s death. He was planning to run for the same NY seat Hillary had earmarked for herself to be her springboard for the Clinton return to the White House.

I am sure JFK jr would have been elected to that seat and would have been elected President last Nov. instead of Barry Soetoro.

(Obama eligibility case will be heard on merits !!)

(snip - The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program. To qualify, for the scholarship, a student must claim foreign citizenship)

Erick Holder planning to hold President Bush and V.P. Cheney responsible for "War Crimes" while (Barry Frees Iranian Terror Masters) - smoke and mirrors to keep America from learning the truth about this FRAUDULENT President. The rest of the world is wondering why Americans are letting this happen. It is very simple, Barry is Black and it would be Politically Incorrect to expect the same from him as you would say Sarah Palin or Mitt Romney....but politically correctness is de rigueur for Barry as it is for the minority judge Sotomayor. Don't give him Health Care, more stimulus, or any of his hurry-up and vote issues which he doesn't want even the congress to read. Barry Soweto, aka Barack Hussein Obama, is a FRAUD!

How’d they manage to convince him to fly an overloaded plane that he wasn’t terribly familiar with in very poor visibility with a foot in a cast?

No need to suspect conspiracies where stupidity explains everything. Which sadly seems to cover most human events...

Here's a list. It sounds accurate, though I don't know how Kennedy got the keynote speech in 1980 when he was running himself.:

2008 Mark Warner
2004 Barack Obama
2000 Harold Ford Jr
1996 Evan Bayh
1992 Barbara Jordan
1988 Ann Richards
1984 Mario Cuomo
1980 Edward Kennedy
1976 Barbara Jordan
1972 Reuben Askew
1968 Daniel Inouye

Obama was probably the most obscure of the keynote speakers. But not by much.

The keynote speaker is mostly an up-and-coming politician. Cuomo and Askew had only been governors for a little over a year when they delivered the keynote, so while we remember Cuomo as an old man of the party, he was just coming into the national spotlight then. Ditto for Jordan, who just had her moment of Watergate fame.

Bayh had been Governor for a while, but was little known nationally when he gave the keynote. Clinton was in a similar position. Inouye was also well into his first Senate term, but his Watergate moment was in the future. Warner was an ex-Governor who had been limited to only one term by his state constitution.

The closest parallels to Obama were Ford, who was a second-term Congressman (expected eventually to run for the Senate), and Richards, who was only Treasurer of the State of Texas (and was elected Governor in the next election cycle.

Obviously Obama had pull somewhere or somebody higher up in the party liked him. But if you look not at what he'd done up until the convention but at what the party stood to gain if he did well -- a Senate seat from one of the largest states -- the choice of Obama wasn't completely off the wall.

Speaking of the Soetoro v. Obama names, is his legal last name Soetoro? He was supposedly adopted by Soetoro and until that adoption is absolved or Hussein files to have his name legally changed, he is still legally Soetoro. The divorce of the parents would not automatically allow the name change. The rest of us can’t make up any ol’ name as our legal signature.
