Obama: Americans Express Themselves Through Government

April 25, 2013 by  

President Barack Obama is undoubtedly a fan of big government. But remarks from the President on Wednesday illustrate just how much he adores burgeoning bureaucracy — and why he thinks American citizens do, too.

In discussing how Americans express “compassion and concern and fellow feeling” with donors attending a Democratic National Committee fundraising event at a private residence in Dallas, the President said government is key.

“That all of us have a stake in their success, and all of us have a stake in a country that expresses this incredible quality of compassion and concern and fellow feeling, not just in our churches or our synagogues or our mosques or our temples, not just in our workplaces or our neighborhoods or our Little League, but also expresses itself through our government,” Obama said.

The President went on to explain that citizens express their compassion when they support growing the size of government and more taxes in the name of helping the poor, young, elderly and vulnerable.

Obama did not explain what the average American might be expressing by way of rampant government waste, massive deficits and horrific atrocities resulting from misguided foreign policy initiatives.
