Obama: ‘America Can’t Succeed
When a Shrinking Few Do Well and
a Growing Number Barely Make It’

Fox News, by Staff

During his inauguration speech, President Obama spoke of the class divide in the nation, saying: “For we, the people, understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it. We believe that America’s prosperity must rest upon the broad shoulders of a rising middle class. We know that America thrives when every person can find independence and pride in their work; when the wages of honest labor liberate families from the brink of hardship. We are true to our creed when a little girl born into

Comments:
To me that was the most divisive, anti-American parts of this diatribe. The only thing missing was all the deviant miscreants from Occupy Wall Street. He sure isn´t president for "all the people." Even John F. Kennedy must be rolling over in his grave.

You have made that situation WORSE by crushing the private sector, you deceitful, worthless creep. The wealthy now enrich themselves by buying access to taxpayer money in DC.

So, a few who are doing really well is a problem? And for the many who are struggling, it´s the governments job to help them? They can´t help themselves?

The more of the nation´s wealth we can gather here in DC, the more comfy we can make the couch-sitters waiting for their checks...The unlimited income possibilities in public sector sinecures and influence peddling schemes point the way to a golden future of kickbacks and bribes for us Dems...

To quote Ronald Reagan, "There you go again". Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Zero Sum Barry: Wealth cannot be created, it can only be redistributed. If you are doing well, someone else is not and it is your fault beacuse you can only do it at their expense. The history of the US is living proof that this philosophy is pure garbage, derived solely to foster and push a socialist political agenda.

Has anyone noticed that obama has never asked that the "ones who barely make it" need to change the way they live. I am not talking about the unemployed or others who have fallen down that rabbit hole through no fault of their own. I am talking about those having children out of wedlock, those who have never worked and expect someone else to support them, those who drink too much, use drugs, hang with the wrong crowd. Those who chose to turn their backs on education and spend their "government benefits" on stripper and nail salons. Those who want others to take care of their children so they can sleep away the day or sleep around. He asks the workers to give more to the government so they can buy votes. We are so screwed. The American spirit of independence is dead and those with their hands out are over taking those who work. I hate this administration and what they have done to us. I am very afraid about what the next four years hold for us.

Kennedy is grinning ear-to-ear. JFK signed an executive order allowing federal employees to form unions. Without that, there would be no Øbama regime.

This is the direct result of government policy. Even in the days of the robber barons, this didn´t describe this country. Yet this is where we are headed. The number of people in the > 250,000 class has dropped as has the average wage of the middle class.

#6, MLK was a Republican and believed in all people being equal--not some being more equal than others. Just because the left has adopted MLK doesn´t mean that he would adopt them. He was very anti-communist. With regard to JFK...while he may have done some boneheaded things, he was still quite conservative for a Democrat (even back then).

So his solution is for fewer people to do well and a growing many to hardly make it? That sure spreads the wealth around, puts everyone on the same playing field, and guarantees a permanent unemployed class.

But don´t worry about it, because he will continue to print those food stands and welfare checks even after there is no one left to support his grand scheme.

The only spending cuts Obama believes in are the spending cuts of the citizens who don´t have any extra money to spend! And it´s reaching to the top - even successful and "wealthy" are feeling the pain i.e. Phil Mickelson.

Pelosi says that unemployment benefits stimulate the economy, and I guess Obama thinks the same way about food stamps, welfare, ssdi benefits, etc. These people can´t add 2+2.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our
