Obama Calls GOP Budget ‘Social Darwinism’

April 3, 2012 by  

President Barack Obama criticized House Republicans and Representative Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) for the GOP budget proposal that the President likened to Social Darwinism.

“It’s nothing but thinly veiled Social Darwinism. It’s antithetical to our entire history as a land of opportunity and upward mobility for everyone who’s willing to work for it, a place where prosperity doesn’t trickle down from the top, but grows outward from the heart of the middle class.”

The President also called the budget a “Trojan horse” that would be used to force radical change in the United States.

Ryan’s budget passed in the House last Thursday in a 228-191 party-line vote, setting the stage for an election-year battle with Democrats on spending and the debt. The budget aims to cut $5 trillion more than Obama’s budget proposal and would create a “premium support” option for future Medicare recipients.

    Social Darwinism is an application of the theory of natural selection to social, political, and economic issues. In its simplest form, Social Darwinism follows the mantra of “the strong survive,” including human issues. This theory was used to promote the idea that the white European race was superior to others, and therefore, destined to rule over them.

    Howdy, sports fans. Actually, it’s something of a compliment to be associated with ‘social Darwinism.’ However, the joke is on your false, W H ‘God,’ utopians.
    Perhaps 5% of you rejects know what Obummer is talking about when he mentions “Social Darwinism.”
    ‘Republicans,’ whether they know it or not, should be thankful for the chance to put that gargantuan, stinking cow muffin back into its owner’s pocket.
    Stay tuned, sports fans. This administration’s raw Fascism is out of its closet. So when does Obummer take that Benitoish paranoia out on the open road? Rousseau and Mussolini must be many kinds of PROUD.

    I think that he must have been reading his own budget instead of Paul Ryan’s and mistook it for Ryan’s budget, when he made those comments. 441-0, now that is laughable!

    The Ryan budget heaps favor on those who have benefitted the most from what our country has to offer. It also heaps the burden of running the country on the middle class and provides less to the poor; together the 99% of our country.
