Obama Tells College Students He Is Not A Socialist

Obama Tells College Students He Is Not A Socialist
UPI
“This is not some socialist dream,” said President Barack Obama to students at Florida Atlantic University.

Rewind to October 2008: “I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody,” said then Presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Although the context of the above quote was a conversation with an entrepreneurial plumber, Obama’s plan was to tax the rich. He thought it would be wise to invest that money in things like education, research and healthcare. Essentially, it was a way to “spread the wealth around.”

Fast-forward to Tuesday, April 10, 2012: “So these investments — in things like education and research and health care — they haven’t been made as some grand scheme to redistribute wealth from one group to another,” the President said while speaking to Florida Atlantic University (FAU). “This is not some socialist dream.”

Obama, who has been under scrutiny lately for to his seemingly socialist plans for the country, is now attempting to distance himself from any phrasing that would make it appear that he is opposed to the American dream.

In his speech at FAU, Obama made sure the students were aware that he is opposed to “giving those tax breaks to folks like me who don’t need them.”

    What the O Dude says and what he means are two different matters. He’s a socialist and so much more. He’s also a first-rate liar.

    • Sirian

      s c,
      Jump over to this website and take a look at what’s happening in Portland. It fits into Obummers pocket quite well. . . :(

        Yesterday, Rep. Allan West came right out and stated he knows of 78-81 communists now holding office in the us gubmint. And he also called them out as the “progressive caucus”. Well, I salute you Mr. West. Somebody in public office finally has the b@lls to call these traitors out. Time to get rid of this trash.

      • Sirian

        Warrior,
        Came across this listing of some of the best in Congress – take a look. As to the actual validity of the list I’m not sure but it doesn’t surprise me at all that it fits into what Rep. West had to say – and West doesn’t lie, like most communist enjoy. http://commieblaster.com/progressives/index.html

      • Doc Sarvis

        Warrior, just another big red scare.

      • eddie47d

        Warrior;Since Alan West is a complete and unrepentant liar and nothing more than a smart alicky bully he should excuse himself from Congress. I’ll respect his military service but his remarks in politics make him the traitor.

      • Nancy in Nebraska

        Warrior, you can google “communists in the senate” and there are plenty of sites that will give you the list of names.

      • Doc Sarvis

        Nancy in Neb.
        You can Google almost anything and get returns that support various positions. Just because you can Google something does not make it true.

        eddie says, “Since Alan West is a complete and unrepentant liar and nothing more than a smart alicky bully he should excuse himself from Congress.”

        Spoken by the proven and unrepentant liar eddie…is eddie ready to provide more than “his word” to support up his accusations against Allan West…like proof for a change?

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1673686634 June Gagnon

        Eddie47 “thinks” Rep. Allen West is lying!!! Eddie, have I got news for you- -in actuality, there are closer to “90″ socialist/communist reps, in BOTH houses of Congress and they show their true “stripes’ every time they open their mouths! At one time, the entire list was posted on the home page of the DSA (democratic socialists of America). The DSA just “happens to be” a very active, vocal arm of CPUSA (communist party of the USA). These “politicos” took so much heat, for their affiliation, they made DSA remove their names from the list, But, I’ll go one step further- -the “former ” Speaker of the House – -the “botox queen” was a “chairperson” for the DSA, just “prior” to becoming Speaker.

        Sirian-I couldn’t reply “directly” to Eddie, so had to send it to you!

      • eddie47d

        I know some of you believe everything you hear from “patriots” because you are proving it right now.

    • http://politicalrevelation.com Dan (Walter) Rykard

      You are so right. Please all you college students do not believe a word that comes out of Obama mouth. The old saying Believe nothing you hear and half off what you see.

      • NRobinbird

        I pray the students are smart enough to listen to him. I believe most of who voted for him want somthing for nothing, how does that happen some one has to pay and belive me it will be the tax dollars of you and I

      • NRobinbird

        Corretion from my last post. I pray the students are smart enough to know when they are being lied investigate and find out the truth because you won’t find the truth if you are listening to the Obumer.

      • Nancy in Nebraska

        These kids have been indoctrinated since elementary school. They have no problem accepting what they’ve been told. My friend has a son in college. She’s having a heck of a time trying to convince him that socialism is not a good thing. He’s sure that a redistribution of wealth is just what’s needed. He graduates this spring and has a really good job lined up so hopefully he will change his tune when he finds out that it’s HIS money that they want to redistribute.

        • jess

          If you go to utube their is a good video on George Bernard Shaw .I always thought of him in poetry didnt know he favored Hitler and socialism.

    • Nadzieja Batki

      O is a typical word twister.He will say that he is not a Socialist which may be correct if he is a full blown Marxist.
      He may also say he is not a Socialist because who among the students would then rise up and say “Sir, you a liar because you have proven yourself a Socialist”.

    • Mike in MI

      Beg to differ, s c, he’s a WORST rate liar. But then in the book where he finds his religion it’s written that you can say anything you want to at any time to unbelievers without it being offensive to the head god in the cult of the moon.
      As to his being a socialist/communist/marxist/call-it-what-one-might (or might not, if one seeks to hide what is obvious about Oblama-lama) just listen to the fist few minutes of his Florida speech for a clarification.
      In spite of his efforts to try to distance himself from Marxist rhetoric he can’t get very far away from himself – it’s what he is. I was flabergasted to hear him give a reiteration of the “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need”…just using different words. He’s absolutely suffused with the cliches of historical communism…and marxism’s goals and policies to get there.

    • carrobin

      Anyone who calls Obama a socialist has no concept of what a socialist is.

      • Patriot1776

        Call him what ever, he is not a capitalist, he is not a believer in the United States Constitution, or the American dream, he is not a patriot. He believes that government should take care of his subjects, that he should be all powerful, that he is above the laws of this country. He follows the teachings of the Marxist, the communist, so…if it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck…

      • michiganminuteman

        Is that because he is a communist, or a Marxist? I know what socialisim is. I know what communism is. Do you?

      • CJM2

        carrobin: You have made it perfectly clear that you do not know what socialism is….what it doesn’t do is allow you the freedom to speak out as you are now doing; it does not allow you to acknowledge or not acknowledge a set of religious tenets that you adhere by; it does not allow you due process in a court of law; it does not allow you to make your own choices as to what occupation you want to be in, what school you wish to go to, provide the necessary funds (either loans or grants) to pursue that educational dream, select your spouse or life partner, or even decide how many children you want to have in your marriage or partnership. To be sure, there are many other things socialism will deny you–including the right to bear arms (as in the 2nd Amendment) or the right to keep the military from confiscating your home. Grow up and study your history, then make a more informed statement as opposed to the pap fed to you by abyssmal obammites.

    That just depends on what “your” definition of a “socialist” IS – -call him a communist, it amounts to the same thing! Remember ole’ “slick willy” when he said “It depends on what your definition of “is” IS!”

    • Sirian

      June,
      You’ve hit it dead center – Socialism is the first initial step towards the full implementation of a Communistic State. Look up and what I tacked in for s c to have a look at. That is a profound piece of evidence as to what direction our universities are directing the easily molded young minds of our country.

      • Sirian

        Uh oh, just noticed it. . . “Look up “AT” what I tacked in”, duh, an unweary finger missed it’s proper place of arrival. . . :)

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1673686634 June Gagnon

        Sirian-It’s ok – -if you’ve noticed, when I get agitated/upset, my fingers stutter; talk about typos!

  • MAP

    Obama is not a socialist? He is a moderate? If these are true, then he has taken dictatorial control of dictionaries and is now writing his own definitions. Of course, what he really proves is what he has already proven beyond doubt: He is the greatest liar to sit in a position well known for liars (i.e. the presidency). Never, ever forget that the USSR stood for the United Soviet Socialists Republic. I don’t know that a greater traitor has existed in this countries’ history, Aaron Burr included, and that traitor, unbelievably, sits in the White House, with the traitorous media at his beck and call. These are perilous times!

    • michiganminuteman

      Very well said!

  • Doc Sarvis

    A socialist would not have kept taxes low for the very wealthy his entire first term.

    • FedUpinNH

      Doc Jarvis – are we to believe Obama “kept taxes low” for the very wealthy, as a sign of his benevolence? More to the point, while he postures for votes, there is no bill currently under debate in either the House or the Senate, for raising such tax rates. The fact that Congress has not acted on raising those tax rates does not refute Obama’s socialist agenda.

    • http://www.ifonlyphotos.com Alex Frazier

      Doc, Obama has been trying to raise taxes on the wealthy, or reduce deductions for the wealthy, since day one. Every budget he proposes includes increased taxation or reduced deductions for the wealthy. Every project he tries to embark on includes increased taxation or reduced deductions for the wealthy.

      It is his conspicuous and undeniable goal to fund one social program after another with the wealth of the wealthy.

      And the Republicans, many of whom made a pledge not to raise taxes, have kept their word and thwarted Obama’s attempts to fleece the American people.

      • carrobin

        I guess you’re among the .01% who own most of the wealth in America. I’m not, and I know the wealthy should be paying more taxes.

      • Mike in MI

        Alex –
        Ultimately, I don’t think it matters because it’s all going to have to be paid back. When that day comes everybody is going to HAVE TO PAY confiscatory tax rates – or become subservent to whoever holds the note on all this national debt and loans.
        Either that or let our economic system totally collapse into chaos…stagflation max…utter vulnerability…310,000,000 demonstrators demanding basic needs…social disruption, starvation, pestilence and death.
        In spite of the declaration of marial law by our ultra-civilized, progressive rulers.
        Finally, anybody who can convince a sizeable mob that he has “the AHNSWEARS” will be exalted and declared a savior.

      • Vigilant

        “I guess you’re among the .01% who own most of the wealth in America. I’m not, and I know the wealthy should be paying more taxes.”

        carrobin, you make purely off-the-cuff comments with nothing but your own emotion to back it up. Please refer to http://personalliberty.com/2012/04/13/dont-celebrate-that-tax-refund/#comments

        “Despite the demagogic cry that the “rich” need to pay “their fair share,” the truth is that the top 5 percent of U.S. taxpayers already pay about 60 percent of U.S. income taxes while the bottom 40 percent pay no income taxes at all.”

        I might add that the top 10% pay over 70% of the income taxes in America.

        And BTW, take a course in 8th grade mathematics. One percent is .01, not .01% (1/100 of 1%).

    • http://www.mototcarsfinancial.com Brad

      Doc you are full of sh–. It is called re-election. He knew if he raised taxes he would have no chance of re-election

      • carrobin

        A huge majority of American citizens are in favor of raising taxes on those whose income is over $250,000 a year. it’s the Congress that balks at giving Obama the go-ahead–since they’re almost all multimillionaires themselves.

      • Mike in MI

        carrobin -
        That wouldn’t stop them they would just exempt themselves somehow, like they exempted themselves from the “health” masquerade they dumped on us peons.

      • Patriot1776

        carobbin, does a “huge majority” of Americans really feel that way or is this just a heaping helping from the mainstream media/obama propaganda corps? I am not personally aware of anyone that I have aquaintance with that is naiive enough to believe that if the 1% are taxed more that it will fix obama’s and congress’ spending disease. By penalizing the wealthy for being successful, you remove the motivation to succeed. If you remove the motivation to succeed, you end up with more people in the welfare system, because why work when obama will give it to you. You get enough in the welfare system, you can’t afford to maintain it because there aren’t enough working, because you took the capital away from the wealthy who were creating jobs….

      • oh oh

        One of the reasons we have a Constitution is to secure individual liberty for each of us, rich or poor, with the rule of law to protect us from the thievery of the carrobins of the world who justify their immoral, tyrannical plunder with “majorities.” Our system protects the individual from the tyranny of democratic majorities who attempt to violate our inalienable rights. That’s the beauty and the true fairness of it, not the “fair share” propaganda being spewed by progressive deceivers and ignoramuses today to justify their abandonment or rejection of our founding principles of freedom.

    • eddie47d

      There are many Americans who are FedUp with the outrageous salaries and bonuses that those wealthy indulge in. Saying they earned their loot is a slap in the face to all Americans who honestly labor for their wages. JC Penny’s is facing financial challenges yet the CEO 3 days ago paid himself $61 million for a years work. Remember the CEO of United Healthcare who received $1billion 400 million is retirement 3 years ago right in the middle of rising healthcare costs and the economy had already tanked. We all know how sports figures blackmail team owners in receiving whopping salaries. We all know how Halliburton syphoned millions out of the government in over charges. We know how the Mitt Romney’s make their money and where they hide it.None of this is a secret yet you all envy those wealthy who are in reality taking our system for a ride. Yes our system is broken and it was cracked from the top and their damages are trickling down. When some of you correct the misdeeds of Wall Street and all the carpetbagging that goes with it then I may be all ears.

    • Doc Sarvis

      Alex,
      I would agree that President Obama has tried to bolster the social programs for those in our country who are having a very rough time in this recovering economy. I will also put forward the fact that he is trying to remove the social programs that fund those who have benefitted the most from what our country has to offer. That includes the subsidies for the oil companies and the removal of the tax breaks to corporations that ship our jobs overseas.

      • http://PersonalLibertyDigest Troy

        One of Obama’s czars is one of the biggest movers of jobs overseas(GE) look at all the auto ind. they all have their parts made in another country,One of GM cars is made in Canada.60% of all GM’s parts are made in Mexico,I’m sorry but you have listened to to much political speeches from Obama,He is involved in shipping jobs overseas, and don’t believe the tax speech either.Big oil, probally hasn’t gave up the big money for his relection like they did in 08 BP gave him a million dollars,He wants to destory our country, just do your research………………….

      • eddie47d

        That may well be Troy yet he does want to stop those jobs from going overseas. He wants to put restrictions on those companies and put higher tariffs on their products that come back to the USA. I don’t think he is completely in bed with the CEO of GE yet. Since most US Corporations are top heavy and pay themselves out of sight wages maybe that is the reason they have to move their businesses overseas. Those multi-million dollar salaries have to somehow be paid so they chuck the US workers hire foreign replacements so they can continue to pay themselves those high salaries. I would say it’s the CEO salaries that are out of whack here in America and causing problems for us.

      • Mike in MI

        Right troy -
        Over the years that he’s been in power he’s been amassing power and the ability to either milk or exercise some degree of control over our financial sectors, industries and disease care choices. He’s just a devilish thief (but we won’t know about the full extent ofthat until it’s too late to retrieve the handle on control of our own lives.
        But, that’s the real thrust behind liberal leaders and their supporters. What, do you think Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Khruschev, Hitler, Chavez or any of the other “beloved, exalted Socialist democratic saviors” lived like their subjects?

      • Patriot1776

        Just a minor point of truth, it isn’t tax breaks that move jobs overseas, it is the excessive government regulations that drive the cost of manufacturing in the United States so high that is has been cheaper to move the manufacturing overseas where there is less regulations, less taxes which means less costs. So obama’s EPA and the other regulating powers are the ones causing jobs to leave.

      • Vigilant

        Patriot1776, that is a MAJOR truth, not a minor one.

        Potential investors in business are sitting on the sidelines with trillions of dollars because the Obama crowd have made the economic situation so unpredictable that those investments have been witheld.

        At every turn, the prospects for confiscatory taxation, onerous regulation and wealth redistribution schemes have dampened any interest in investing in plant and property. If Romney is elected, and takes any meaningful action to improve the prospects of business, we’ll see an unleashing of this wealth to create literally millions of jobs and improve the economy.

    • Nancy in Nebraska

      Doc, even under socialism or communism the wealthy stay wealthy. It only affects “the common man”. There is no such thing as true communism or true socialism. The wealthy and elite will always be so.

      • carrobin

        This is true. The wealthy take care of themselves (and when they develop a little guilt about their billions, many do help out their favorite charities, which of course helps them avoid some taxes). All the more reason to raise their taxes.

      • Nadzieja Batki

        The only ones who will remain wealthy are the government approved wealthy.

      • Doc Sarvis

        I’m not against wealth. I am against the robbing of the poor and middle class to further line the pockets of the already wealthy, who by the way have had the advantages of those same poor and middle class people supporting them for far too long.

      • Mike in MI

        Doc Sarvis -
        “…The wealthy…”??? Like Obama and his czars?

      • eddie47d

        You are naive on the wealthy Mike. Maybe Obama thinks he is wealthy because he made 2-3 million off of his books but $400,000 a year may or may not make you extremely wealthy. Compared to other CEO’s wages Obama is a pauper and yet he runs a corporation (USA) of 310 million . .

      • http://folkartist.wordpress.com Libertytrain

        eddie – I think he gets some pretty good bennies and those speaking engagements — later – like clinton has managed to create a nice nest egg for him and his ladies.

    • Mike in MI

      But, Doc Sarvis -
      Is it so hard to understand that he hasn’t kept them down??? He has put so much debt on us the it borders on treason. Just because he hasn’t yet asked Congress to pass the legislation for it doesn’t mean he, or some successor, won’t have to do it. He’s only manipulating things for his own enrichment before he goes back home to Kenya.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1673686634 June Gagnon

      Doc-Check again; this presidential impostor has NOT kept taxes low, for “anyone”! He has managed to “raise taxes AND fees” on anything and everything we buy everyday; it does not matter if you’re rich, poor, or in the middle – -you ARE paying more in taxes, you just haven’t “realized” it, yet!

  • Airangel

    If Obama taxed the rich, how does that help struggling citizens pay less at the pump, pay less at the grocery store, pay less to heat their home in the winter or pay less to cool it in the hot summers. How does taxing the rich help any of us stretch our paycheck? IT DOESN’T! It just gives the government more money to blow to expand their reach and eventually take over.

    The average citizens will not benefit but suffer from more price increases and more lay offs. This fall of America is a deep seated hatred and plan….those of you that think Obama cares, you are in for a rude awakening once he has the power and control he seeks, just look at N.Korea, no freedom, completely Government ran and the citizens are in complete slavery with no nutrition and no quality of life whatsoever! They are trapped for life unless they can escape.

    • eddie47d

      Private enterprise controls most of the costs of gas and food so why don’t you have a chat with them and tell them all your hardships you have to endure because of their speculating and greed. Those Hedge Fund speculators have you by the tail and they can charge anything they want and you won’t do a thing about it. No one likes big government and you can lay it all on Obama (or whoever else is President) but when it comes down to the final count the President doesn’t control what those on Wall Street do. If he does attempt to bring the cost of gas down by any means then you would say that is government interference in our free enterprise system. Conservatives have thus boxed themselves in by allowing those on Wall Street to run wild yet will not do a thing to control their outrageous behavior.

    • carrobin

      Yeah right, the USA is turning into North Korea. Talk about paranoia.
      Higher taxes on the very wealthy would bring down the deficit, thus relieving the temptation to cut back on Medicare and Social Security. The Republicans want to cut anything that helps the poor or middle class, so they insist that they need every bit of their money to “create jobs.” And again, yeah right.

      • Airangel

        a productive society is an independent and free society. people should be responsible for their own family and their own life. Government should have NEVER touched Social Security. Hard working Americans paid into that all their lives. It was taken from their paychecks. It’s their money, NOT the Governments. If we had less Illegals and lazy people off Medicaid, there would be more funds available for Medicare but we foster laziness and poor work ethics or we don’t create American private sector jobs to get these unemployed back to work and off the Government teet. A prosperous society pays ceasars taxes and takes care of its own. An enslaved society is dependent on Government and is not inspired or productive but becomes restless and irresponsible without structure or discipline.

      • Airangel

        Trust me carrobin, they can tax the rich and you still won’t benefit or be better off. In fact people like you and me would never see any improvement to our lives. It’s a farse! We would still pay more for goods, gas, utilities, property taxes, and anything you buy in a store. Those prices will just go up making our money buy even less. Corruption is corruptions when you do things for the wrong reasons. I don’t have the answers but I know from common sense that taxing the rich more will not help you or me one whit!

      • Mike in MI

        Fool. Yes, we are quite swiftly being turned into N. Korea.
        Have you ever sat down and counted the number of crises we have presently? Financial, employment, medical costs and progressive degradation of peoples’ health status, increasing drug shortages, hospital and clinic closures, judicial back ups, decay of our cities, crime rates, decreasing incomes alongside rising costs, President Liar…I could go on but, “Why?”, with dolts like you around who needs the list?

      • Mike in MI

        My “Fool” comment above is directed at carrobin

      • CJM2

        Sounds to me, carrobin, that you are just plain jealouse of those who have while you have nothing. Over taxing any group is just plain stupid. If the wealthy were taxed at 100%, it still would not pay off the indebtedness your messiah has gotten us into. The only thing left for the PATRIOTIC CITIZEN to do is to vote the demon out of the White House, fumigate it, and put someone in the Presidency that is PRO-AMERICAN, PRO-CONSTITUTION. No ifs, ands, or buts about it—that low-life ought to be tarred, feathered, and run out of the USA on a rail.

      • eddie47d

        What Mike doesn’t tell you all is who tanked the economy and created all those problems. Sorry can’t say his name out loud.

  • Raggs

    I hope the students are smart enough to understand that oblama is a fat-arse liar.

    • Doc Sarvis

      I’m sure most of the students (the thinking ones) understand that President Obama has been put in a tougher situation than most (if not all) recent Presidents. And that he is building (slowly) our country’s economy, policy, and reputation in positive ways.

      • NRobinbird

        Bottom line everything he says is a lie!!!!!! Those who believe him are not facing facts! He is destroying America the country I love, he has not faced any consequences for what he is doing. No one seems to call him on anything he does. He is a scarey individual!!!!

      • Airangel

        I’m sorry doc but all success is because of hard working Americans and private sector. Engergy and oil production is because Obama hasn’t been able to shut down the drilling on private land although he’s trying his best. Any success in this country is IN-SPITE of Obama NOT because of him and I pray we defeat him or we will all be endentured servants with no HOPE! He does not care about the 50% of Americans not working, they are a number to him, a vote to continue his take over of the only Free society standing in the way…they are an ignorant useful tool at the moment that will soon be disgarded once they have served his purpose. He is a true deceiver and speaks with a serpents tongue. His actions do not match his words. He does not walk the talk.

      • carrobin

        Sure, and Romney would fix all that, you say?

      • michiganminuteman

        Doc Sarvis, are you for real? No wonder our country is going down the tubes with people like you leading the way. Stop watching NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, MSNBC.

        Then, turn around and “look” at the “real facts”- -he is, slowly, insidiously, “tearing down” everything good about the USA!

      Doc, students don’t think anymore. They spit out the crap they’ve been fed.

    It’s almost like Tricky Dick Nixon saying,”I am not a crook.”
    Just ask him what the New Party was all about.I’ll bet he doesnt have the testicular fortitude to answer you.
    A gray community organizer saying he isnt a socialist,is a lot like Betty White saying she isnt old,or Joy Behar saying she is funny. It just doesnt make any sense.
    The guy has a talent for out-and-out fabrication of his point of view depending on what medium of media he is using.Where I come from we call that a politician.

    “What you are thunders so loudly,that I cannot hear what you say to the contrary”.-Ralph Waldo Emerson.

    The college age mind is full of idealism,and when you get in front of large crowds of folks who think like you do,its easy to try to dazzle them with brilliance,but more often you end up baffling them with male bovine fecal matter.
    They stand and cheer,and love the bullscat.Its what they are used to being fed by their marxist professors anyhow.
    Six out of ten of them will wind up being staunch conservatives once they get a little wisdom under their belts(that comes after retirement age,although for some,albeit few,it comes sooner than that).The rest never grow out of youthful ignorance.Either that or they just dont survive to achieve any wisdom.Eventually the numbers of those who think like marxist professors gets to be larger than thosse who eventually see the light,and they elect socialists who claim not to be socialists.
    In youth you see what you want to see,and ignore that which doesnt match your sensibilities.You go by emotional content rather than objectivity because when you are learning from emotional wrecks like marxist professors,that is how you are instructed to think.When shortly thereafter you go out into the cold cruel world,and get a sense of what is really going on by folks who actually perceive what is really going on,your youthful perception gives way to objectivity,and you begin to see the forrest through the trees.
    In that mean time,you are subjugated by those with ideology that SEEMS right,but is actually far left euphoric utilitarian utopianism.
    There is a sense of community in the institutions of media/academia,so that when a community organizer tells you that he isnt a socialist,you find it more palatable to your emotional content than if you actually looked at his actions,and saw that he is a socialist.

    “Do as I say.not as I do.”,says the radical marxist professor,who drives an expensive Beamer,and enjoys hustling rich mens daughters(or sons depending on his degree of deviancy)into his bed.
    It s all part of the fabric of America.
    One that is fire resistant,right?
    We will soon find out ,I am certain,of just how fire resistant we are.
    till then,
    Cheers!

    • Mike in MI

      Agreed,dan. I’ve been convinced he’s nothing but a ghetto con-man for four years now.
      I think that’s why so many of the libs who comment here admit their penury or complain about the wealth of others who learn to make and steward money. The libs get suckered often and fail to learn. So they accuse everybody else of being crooks…but then, still continue to toss it to the winds. Envy is such a horrid vice.

  • jess

    Obama doesn’t care if you are white or black,he wants to be a dictator.He is doing a con job. He wants a war between the whites and the blacks,to cover up his real plans.The country was downgraded last week to AA by one of the largest banks in the world.He has made this country into a country of entitlements to break us,u might ask yourself why?His intent is those who can’t work and are a drag on the state will die.He will be the new Hitler. Satan loves war,God is about Love. Learn people their is no difference between white or black we all have the same blood,and body parts.We all want the same things for our children.We all breathe the same.The fight is really God ,and Satan.

      Absoltely brilliant analysis, jess.
      John 10:9 – “The thief cometh not but for to steal, and to kill and to destroy”. That’s Satan’s only purpose in coming around – in what ever garb or guise or ghetto con-man he travels. And when he gets what he wants he makes sure God, Jesus Christ’s Daddy, gets blamed for the grief he’s caused. Satan’s biggest and best lackies have always been theologians and politicians. That’s why they always team up together in subjugating mankind…steal, kill and destroy with philosophies, evil ideologies, “good” causes, and high-sounding beliefs that God refuses to recognize (among other tricks the evil ones use over and over again because man likes to have reasons to accuse God of being foolish or evil or withholding good).

  • Tinkerbell Spots

    For all those individuals that continue to think that the current POTUS is the benevolent savior ought to begin a self-exploratory education. It is not difficult to borrow Obama’s books from the library and read his own words. It is not difficult to Google and ask difficult questions such as who is Obama’s family in Kenya, or did Obama say “spread the wealth around”. He certainly is a socialist in every sense of the word. His father was, his grandparents associated with communists and socialists as did his mother.
    One cannot help having socialist tendencies if raised in that environment. Let’s not forget the individuals that he associated with in Chicago, which he tries to sweep under the rug, sorry but they remain for all to study. Check out the government WH website to see who has been the most frequent visitor. Check out which POTUS has actually spent more $$s in the same time frame. More money has been spent on travel and entertaining in this administration than any other. For those that complain about Bush, he closed up the WH at 9PM except on those state occasions when it was necessary to entertain.
    And poor destitute Obama, he and Michelle had an income of $479,000 before inauguration. They could not live on less. Remember this is a president that said they could not live on his salary as a senator. That takes a lot of gall to say that to a public that has a whole lot less. Yep, tax the so called (1%) rich who pay 40% of the taxes then dribble down to those who make 500,000, 250,000, 100,000 and it goes on. As for the Buffett doonboggle, that is a bunch of accounting slight of hand. Buffett takes a salary of $100,000, the rest of the income is from capital gains. His secretry would have to be making more than $100,00 to pay more in taxes and she /he probably does not have many deductions.. So if you wake up every day, work 12 + hours to achieve a standard of living, you will be expected to help pay for those who have grown to expect entitlements. It is not a war on women’s rights or anyone else, it is an entitlement/plantation mentality that has been allowed to happen in this country. So, it comes down to educating yourself on his associates, cabinet members and appointed czars, ( for example, Van Jones is a communist and Anita Dunn is enamored with Mao). It’s time to say goodby to the POTUS, Reid, Pelosi, Boxer and all of the self annoited czars. Thank you very much liberal socialists!

  • JustAnotherJoe10

    Considering how piss poor the educational system is in the U.S., I dare say those college students will believe every word Obama says (Or any other politician’s word, for that matter), even if they were/are shown to their face what a liar he is. And, considering that no student reads up on history these days, they will not realize-until it is too late-how much of a failure Socialism truly is. Margaret Thatcher was correct when she stated that “Socialism is a great idea, until the government runs out of other people’s money”.

    • 45caliber

      Just:

      We talk about how bad the college indoctrinations are … and it is true. But it wouldn’t take so well with the students if the parents had bothered to teach the kids the difference between libs and conservatives early. I made a point of taking about various problems and the differences between them to my kids as they were growing up. All three are firm conservatives.

  • Mrs. Judy Carol Ibezim

    I think that if we allow any Republican to win in November, we are truly going to uderstand what it means to live in a communist, socialist country. I believe President Obama has a great business mind and he wants to see all people prosper, but I believe he may have some undrground hands trying to demise his plans for the country. Probably in the Medical Profession or nonchristian sect. There is only one candidate for presidency with a medical backgroud and he may totally help Obama to win by splitting the Republican ticket. He should be on an independent ticket. Gingrich is still in the race?Capitalism vs Socialism. Which one would still include democracy. Investment in ownership and control of means of production, distribution and exchange of wealth in the hands of a community as a whole or private individuals or corporations as opposed to state-owned means of wealth. Marxist theory defines Socialism as the stage following Capitalism in the transition of a society to communism. I appreciate the statement made by Rep. Allen West, but I don’t believe it and I know you need to be prepared for reprimand that will come I am sure. Maybe you mean in the spiritual realm.The Republican party has been putting out a lot of lies regarding President Obama and his campaign( who is democrat by the way) and they have all been white. so, now is this an example of black on black assault stirring in the White House since that other black Rep. that tried to run was ousted because of sexual harassment accusations? I am sure more will be discussed by the House to come. That is a stiff and bold accusation to make about a Democratic Party, sir.

    • Airangel

      @Mrs Ibezim….Obama has an agenda, not a great business mind. He has been fed lies all his life and was shaped by those lies or misguided projections of scorned individuals. He had ridden on the coat tails of others money and kindness taking credit from otheres when things are good and blaming others when things go bad. He ran his candidacy on transparency yet right after being sworn in, he sealed everything about his past so the American people could not truly know who was leading their country. It’s all coming out now but not nearly fast enough. His college roomate said he mooched off him constantly…He and Michelle both had their law licenses revoked for fraud….that is very telling of the character of this Bonnie and Clyde team

    • CJM2

      Mrs Judy…..: Since you so whole-heartedly embrace the cultism of obammyism and his wonderously generous plan to redistribute the wealth, why not relieve yourself of anything of value that you may have earned over the years. Why wait for another 4 years of obammyism? I am sure that you have plenty of those in need right near where you reside; give them your money, stocks, bonds, furnishings–even your house for those homeless residing under the bridge. After you have done this marvelous gesture, then write and let us know how it really feels to be dispossessed and left wanting. Yes, obammy has a mind–unfortunately, he lacks brain-matter.

    • michiganminuteman

      First of all, why does it always come down to black vs. white. I don’t give a tinkers damn about the fact that obama is half black. He could be all black and it wouldn’t make any differance! Obommer is the most dangerous potus this country has ever seen. Man you libs are pissing me off!!!!

      I’ll even bet Judy thinks that Obamacare is about health care. If these Kool-Aid drinkers don’t see this pretty soon, we will be in trouble. If Oblowme had his way…we would have cap & trade…& lose our right to own weapons. Combine that with health care…that would be total government control.

      Edmund:

      “Patriot” is a bad word to a lib. By calling West a patriot (which I believe is correct) you are saying he is a terrible person to a lib. Patriots are concerned about defending the country and the people in it; to a lib, the government control is the only solution.

    He’s worse than a socialist; obammy is really an islamist communist–he wants the US to be a theocracy like they are in the middle eastern countries where shar’ia is the only “law” and you aren’t allowed to own anything. Anyone who believes he intends to redistribute the wealth in the manner of Robin Hood is sadly out of touch. The redistribution is from your pocket to his—and no other place.

  • James

    Webster defines ‘socialism’ as: “any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods; a system of society or group living in which there is no private property; a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state; a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done.”
    When the rich are overtaxed they cease to invest in or start new businesses, which brings about stagnation. Remember how East Berlin looked when the wall came down?

  • James

    Marxism states: Each contributes according to his ability and receives according to his needs. Thus, if a nuclear scientist is unmarried he only needs a room with a cot and little food. while a married ditch digger with 5 children needs a three-bedroom house and seven times that much food.
