The Daily Caller uncovered this video of President Obama at a November 2006 Democrat fundraiser in Pennsylvania. He said he “stole” the title of his book “The Audacity of Hope” from his pastor, Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.
“I’m not plugging the book, but the title of it, ‘The Audacity of Hope.’ Some people have noticed that I actually used that line in the speech that I gave at the 2004 Democratic Convention,” Obama said on November 4, 2006 in Bristol, Pa., at a rally in support of Patrick Murphy, who went on to serve two terms in Congress. ”But I tell you what: I’m confessing to all of you here today — it’s a big crowd, 2,000 people — I’m confessing in front of the TV cameras: I actually stole this line from my pastor, Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright, Jr.”
