Obama mocks financial success as ‘blind luck’ [3:06]
He’s got one thing right; we ARE in an ideological war here. Of course, I think his depiction of what characterizes our two sides is a stinking load of donkey doo. But at least he gets it that we’re not just at war with radical Muslims, but also with our fellow Americans.
What he says about our side is so wrong, I don’t know where to start. However, I know for many facts that his claim that his side embraces “what works” is utter BALONEY!
- High taxation slows the economy, decreasing both jobs and government revenue.
- Rent control laws decrease the availability of decent, affordable housing.
- Gun control laws increase the rate of gun crime.
- Since abortion was legalized, the rates of unwed teen pregnancy and fatherless homes has skyrocketed.
Yet HIS side continues to support and demand more and more of the same!
Furthermore, his mocking of successful people, saying they owe it all to “blind luck” and “women doing other people’s laundry”, is proof we did not take “you didn’t build that” out of context. Besides which, HOW many times have he and his lackeys declared it was OBAMA who got bin Laden?!
The following is from the speech he made announcing bin Laden was dead:
“And so shortly after taking office, I directed Leon Panetta, the director of the CIA, to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority of our war against al Qaeda.”
Translation: “Bush failed to get bin Laden. It took ME, Barack Obama, to get bin Laden!”
“I was briefed on a possible lead to bin Laden. … I met repeatedly with my national security team … I determined that we had enough intelligence to take action, and authorized an operation to get Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice. Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.”
Translation: “You cannot believe how hard I worked on this! Those people couldn’t have done diddly if I weren’t at the helm, directing every single one of their thoughts and actions!”
“The death of bin Laden marks the most significant achievement to date in our nation’s effort to defeat al Qaeda.”
Translation: “I sent our most elite military force against an unarmed guy in his jimjams and that’s waayyyyyyyyyy more significant than all that crap Booosh did, removing Iraq as an al Qaeda haven and turning it into a democratic ally of the United States.”
“We know well the costs of war. These efforts weigh on me every time I, as Commander-in-Chief, have to sign a letter to a family that has lost a loved one”
Translation: “I don’t want you to know that my office sends bereaved military families identical form letters signed for me by an auto-pen.”
I cannot WAIT for this hypocrite to be gone and a real leader, someone whose values I respect and whose leadership I trust, is running things.
