By pitting American against American; Obama created a niche for him to run his re-election campaign on. Yes it was calculating, daring and un-American but it worked and he won. Ultimately, he was hoping that there were more receivers than givers in the country in order to facilitate his agenda.
What does his re-election say about America? It says that the Democrat party of JFK and Bill Clinton died on the 6th November 2012.
Remember this JFK quote:
And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country.
Obama doesn't believe that for one second. If so, his campaign would've been about jobs, entrepreneurship and getting the country working towards prosperity.
The Obama phone woman is THE case in point of the problem with America at the moment.
Ill educated and clueless about anything in the world and in my opinion MUST NOT be the future of America. The American people are smarter than that drivel.
They are smarter than what Obama and his liberal friends want you to believe.
America doesn't have a tax problem, it has a spending problem.
It doesn't have military spending out of control; it has a group of people who believe that they are due something for nothing problem.
Ronald Reagan put it fittingly when he said:
We should measure welfare's success by how many people leave welfare, not by how many are added.
Hand on heart; you couldn't say that Obama really believes that.
Welfare spending has gone through the roof in America since 2001 and it doesn't look like it will be stopping anytime soon under this President. Yes, Bush was also a big spender and didn't do much to curb it, but Obama has made it much worse.
Where are the Democrats who complained of credit card spending in 2003; when you see Obama’s spending history as President?
Where are the folks in the Democratic Party who know that spending is out of control and that class warfare is not the answer?
Where is that Senator from Illinois who said that raising the debt ceiling was a sign of failed leadership?
Where has fiscal sanity gone? Blame the Tea Party all you like, but they know that over spending and debt is the biggest threat this economy faces. Blaming problems on the 1% is a fallacy which will come out over time as the biggest load of bull.
Look at the fiscal cliff nightmare; Obama will not budge in implementing proper spending cuts other than the military which is a tiny portion of the American federal expenditure.
He isn't interested in getting people off the welfare rolls but rather preserving it for generations. Social Security is broke and Medicare is bleeding money and going bankrupt but Obama thinks it is better to tax the top 1% a little more and cut an already downsized military in an increasingly dangerous world.
The problem with welfare spending is that sooner rather than later, you will run out of someone else’s money.
Bill Clinton said that the era of big government was over.
Based on the above, it is hard to say that Obama is anywhere close to those two.
