    This man, Barack Hussein Obama, is our President. He is truly a great man. What a gift we are given.
    Chipsticks, this tape is the best. From 1992.

    Wow–the choice between an inheritance of values or money still rings true today.

    I can’t believe how consistent his story and principles are. Obama is a rare man indeed.

    Thank you Chipsticks for finding and posting this video. I read this wonderful book last year and was able to reflect on the Barack then and now and I was able to more understand and respect his positions and thinking because…wait for it…it is consistent! I HIGHLY encourage everyone to take the time to read this book, “Dreams from my Father”. It reads like a novel and you are caught up from the first page to the last. And you learn something along the way.

    Well CHUMP has got one thing right so far….”Dreams From My Father” is a masterpiece. I love it and plan to read it again very soon. He is so jealous of the President he can hide it anymore.

    “Progress is probably not going to come through the courts these days…we must re-discover a sense of mutual responsibilty”

    He has been consistent and focused on the truth for so long!!! Rock on Barack, ROCK on!!!
