Obama: I Don’t Think Anyone Would Suggest I’ve Tried To Divide The Country – Real Clear Politics “… And I don’t think you or anybody who’s been watching the campaign would say that in any way we have tried to divide the country. We’ve always tried to bring the country together,” The real scary part is that he may actually believe this statement, although I strongly doubt it!
Obama and Biden Scrape the Bottom of the Barrel – Washington Post “I suggested that what President Obama needed to do was lock up the political hacks such as David Axelrod and Bill Burton and Roberts Gibbs and get some sage advice from mature Democrats. … In truth there are few ‘wise men’ in the Democratic Party with the gravitas and the nerve to tell Obama to clean up his act.

Obama Has Learned Nothing about Bailing Out Bad Companies – Washington Examiner “‘What we did with the auto industry,’ President Obama told a crowd in Colorado Springs, Colo., last week, ‘we can do it in manufacturing across America. Let’s make sure advanced, high-tech manufacturing jobs take root here, not in China.’ For anyone who understands the nature of GM’s ‘success,’ and of Obama’s previous attempts to prop up American companies like Solyndra against Chinese competitors, this campaign rhetoric is somewhat dispiriting. It serves as a troubling confirmation that Obama has learned absolutely nothing from three and a half years of trying unsuccessfully to reshape and reinvigorate the American economy through bailouts and subsidies. Obama’s industrial plan continues apace, oblivious to the losses and failures it has created so far.”
165 Million Americans Are Dependents of the State: Is Tyranny Next? – Forbes “Is America descending into a dependency state, where the majority uses its voting power to demand government services from taxpayers. New research from Ranking Member of the Senate Budget Committee Jeff Sessions (R-AL) reveals that this reality may already be here, with more than 107 million Americans on some form of means-tested government welfare. Add to that 46 million seniors collecting Medicare (subtracting out about 10 million on Supplemental Security Income, Medicaid, and other senior-eligible programs already included in Sessions’ means-tested chart) and 22 million government employees at the federal, state, and local level — and suddenly, over 165 million people, a clear majority of the 308 million Americans counted by the U.S. Census Bureau in 2010, are at least partially dependents of the state.”Print This Post Send To A Friend
