"This country does not just succeed when just a few are doing well at the top," Obama said, according to a rush transcript of the remarks. "It succeeds when the middle class gets bigger. Our economy does not grow from the top-down, it grows from the middle-out. We do not believe that anybody is entitled to success in this country. But we do believe in opportunity...snip....That is what we have been fighting for the last four years.
Comments: The Marxist class warfare never ends with this pseudo-American.
It seems that 0bama and Biden keep drinking truth serum in Virginia -- that's where they repeatedly accidentally expose their real thoughts. Roanoke: "You didn't build that!" Danville: "They're going to put you in chains!" Fairfax: "We don't believe anybody is entitled to success in this country!"
It is only all the Afirm. Action blacks that believe that the are entitled and actually OWED success due to slavery, illiteracy, ebonics, drug addiction, welfare, poverty and the countless other reasons that they cannot advance from their plight without blaming whitey.
O and Mooch are exactly the same way and wear the hatred, disgust, cynicism, contempt, jealousy and condescension on their sleaves and smirks. O reeked of it in the debate and every time he steps up to the podium.
O believes that only he and his cronies should be "successful" by spending other peoples' money, taxing the affluent into extinction and slamming Bush and other Republicans. He and his lot are the most vile creatures and destroying our country.
We will not survive four more years of this fraud and liar.
What Obama is basically saying is that he decides who should be successful or not. It's not about what you know but who you know and how well connected or liked you are. Those who are liked by the administration deserve to be rewarded, those who aren't liked deserve to be impeded.
It really is a form of control and elitism, the two hallmarks of socialism.
Lately I've been typing in a lot of posts and then just deleting them because I can't believe the things I am saying about a President. I just can't bring myself to do it. I long for this nightmare to be over.
I think those statements are actually more like Republican statements. Which indicates he is moving to the right in an act of desperation. But he doesn't actually believe any of it and we know that he's just lying.
This was just another straw man argument by Obama, as who ever said that anyone is currently "entitled" to anything in this country?
The only people in the country today who think they should be "entitled" are already in the Obama camp, and base their claimed "entitlements" on discredited and obsolete factors that passed into history long before the current modern age.
Yes, and notice where he came from Chicago, and how well they are doing? Let's see the most corrupt government, the highest murder rate or close to it, high unemployment, and he thinks he could tell us what to do. I don't think so!! Can't wait to vote for Romney/Ryan.
No. 9 "LOATHE" to detest, despise, with intensity. Loathe goes beyond hatred because it is a very deep feeling of disgust that reaches to the core of the individual. therefore to loathe Obummer is more hurtful than to hate.
He just reads the speeches that his writers provide and delusionally thinks that no one realizes that what he states is the opposite of what his actions result in. We all know what his policies bring to our lives. Maybe he is simply lying or maybe he believes what he says. Either way, he needs to see a psychiatrist and to take a long vacation from the office of the President, for the rest of his life. He should live in Hawaii and give speeches to the coconuts. That will make as much sense as what he does now.

Leftists are stupid and know NOTHING about economics, finance and history. The leftist politicians might, but they will lie because they don't want us to prosper. They want to centralize control, amass power and wealth and become dictators over everyone else at our expense and freedom. I guess for the ignorant "true believers", all those great capitalists of the 19th and 20th centuries who created unprecedented prosperity for all of America really didn't do anything at all. Those great men who created foundations and built libraries and hospitals with all that evil money they made...they should never have had the opportunity to do all the great things they did...not according to the lefties.
The only people entitled to something in Comrade Zero's Amerika is Affirmative Action students and people livin in the hood buying skittles with their EBT card and yacking on their OBamaphone. I wish Good King Barack would shut his jive talking face and leave We The People alone. He is tiresome.
'Cronies and the well connected are exempt from this prohibition of course - provided they make large enough campaign contributions and sell me their souls. Oh, and Michelle says "and they eat all their veggies."'
Watch out, Mitt!!! "The Foreign National calling himself Obama" is using the "successful" BOOGEYMAN to DIVIDE our country in yet another way. Class, Race, Success, Entitlement - they're ALL thrown into this campaign stew!!
Oh, yeah. And Mitt is a lying, smooth-talking "rich guy"!!!
Middle out economic growth? Now that's an interesting theory, one I never heard of. Maybe Mr Obama should Go back to Chicago and teach a Middle Out economics course. Then there would be more than one person who understands it!
"Middle out ," eh? Well, since Obama has never been very good at Math, and I happen to be a mathematician, perhaps I can be of some assistance here.
Let's assume that he finally achieves his dream from his father and completely and evenly redistributes 100% of America's annual budget, thus leaving nothing for defense, social security, Medicare, or any government programs at all. Let's see exactly how "middle out" would work.
That would be about 3 trillion divided by 300,000,000 giving each and every one of us the magnificent sum of $10,000. Welcome to Marxist heaven where everyone is equally poor.
Obama is nothing more than a crooked Muslim Marxist Communist pResident. He's not really our President because he does not behave like one. The oval office is empty. The desk in the oval office is empty, and there is an empty chair behind an empty desk.
Obama's policies have cost lives, eroded our freedoms, and made all of us poorer.
zero wants to totally destroy our economy. Because, he is stupid enough to think that after he destroys us, he can play god and bring the dead back to life. He has plenty of help to start the first phase, BUT, in a real world he will never get the chance to do the second part.
Congressman Charlie Rangel (D-NY) appeared surprised by how accommodating leadership PAC funds are to members and their personal spending habits after he saw CBS’s 60 Minutes report on Sunday covering the issue based upon Peter Schweizer’s new book Extortion. “I had no idea the PACs were that flexible and didn´t have the same restrictions. I always treat it the way I treated campaign funds. It seems as though for the integrity of the system that the FEC is going to have to make some changes because it´s become a pension fund and a perk fund,” said Rangel to Breitbart News
According to USAID (United States Agency For International Development), the federal agency in charge of distributing the vast majority of foreign aid monies to other countries, United States taxpayers have paid for over one billion dollars in foreign aid packages to help support the “Syrian Humanitarian Response." Despite the threat of continued chemical attacks against the Syrian people that has served as the focal point of rallying cries for advocates of US military intervention (including the Obama administration), The Daily Beast reported that gas masks were not among the items
David Axelrod lashed out against Republican senator Tom Coburn for suggesting that President Obama is nearing a Constitutional crisis and potential impeachment, calling Coburn’s remarks “way out of bounds.” “He speaks to a kind of virus that has infected our politics that really has to be curbed,” Axelrod said, mockingly referring to Coburn’s suggestion as “his considered legal opinion as an obstetrician.”
You may not be able to tour the White House because of the spending increase slowdown from sequestration, but the Obama family can tour Africa for the small sum of $60 or $100 million. President Barack Obama will hold bilateral meetings with leaders in Senegal, South Africa, and Tanzania between June 26 and July 3, and the wife and kids are going along for the ride. The Obama family vacation will include air transportation for 56 vehicles, among them 14 parade limousines, trucks carrying bulletproof glass to install at hotels, and two ambulances: one for dealing with biological and chemical contaminants, one with x-ray equipment.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama came into office four years ago skeptical of pushing the power of the White House to the limit, especially if it appeared to be circumventing Congress. Now, as he launches his second term, Obama has grown more comfortable wielding power to try to move his own agenda forward, particularly when a deeply fractured, often-hostile Congress gets in his way.
On Thursday´s CBS This Morning, open Obama supporter Gayle King and Norah O´Donnell repeatedly prompted liberal historian Doris Kearns Goodwin to equate the newly-reelected President Obama to Abraham Lincoln. O´Donnell wondered, "Is there a lesson for Obama now in his second term with Lincoln?" King hyped how Obama "sought out" the author and asked, "What did he want to know from you?"
U.S. Rep. James P. Moran’s son Patrick resigned from his father’s campaign after being caught on camera earlier this month appearing to give advice on how to commit voter fraud to a conservative video journalist. Project Veritas, the group headed by conservative activist James O'Keefe, circulated the video Wednesday. Patrick Moran, who had been serving as his father’s field director, said in a statement that he never took the person videotaping him seriously and was simply humoring him.
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
