Rush Limbaugh: Barack Obama Thinks America Has Never Worked

Yesterday Barack Obama once again told reporters that America has never worked and that everybody has to do their fair share.
What a crock.
Rush Limbaugh commented on Obama’s nation-bashing today on his show.

RUSH: Late yesterday afternoon, this is in the Coral Gables, this is at a fundraiser, this is after Obama sang the praises of pond scum as the next substitute for oil.

OBAMA: We’ve gotta make sure that everybody’s doing their fair share. Everybody needs a fair shot, everybody’s gotta play by the same set of rules, everybody’s gotta do their fair share. Everybody’s gotta do their part! Everybody in this room, we are here, successful, because somebody down the road have not just thinkin’ about themselves, they were takin’ responsibility for the country as a whole.

RUSH: What an absolute crock! That is the exact opposite of what goes on. That is his translation of Karl Marx: “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.” This is absolutely full of it. “Everybody gotta do their part. Everybody in this room, we’re here, successful, ’cause somebody down the road was not just thinkin’ about themselves, they were takin’ responsibility for the country as a whole.” That is not what propelled this country! This country was propelled by rugged individualism and rugged self-interest, and it was made possible by virtue of the freedom this country offers its citizens thanks to our Constitution, founding documents, and Founding Fathers.

Now, this may be a fine line. Obama wants you to think that everybody that he deems “successful” is first thinking of government and then, second, thinking of government, and then the last thing they think of is government, and everything they do is oriented toward making the government better. And that isn’t true. Most people today are finding a way to avoid the government! Because of guys like Obama, most people are trying to find a way to evade the government. Because the government, run by guys like Obama, is an obstacle. It’s in people’s way.

Here’s the next sound bite.

OBAMA: We’re not gonna win the race for new jobs and new businesses and middle class security if we’re responding to today’s challenges with the same old, tired worn out “you’re on your own” economics that hasn’t worked. What these other guys are peddling has not worked. It didn’t work in the decade before the Great Depression. It did not work in the decade before I became president. It will not work now.

RUSH: Do you believe this? The country has never worked. Capitalism has never worked. America was not great until the New Deal, and then America plunged into the abyss again, and only is on the path to reclaiming its greatness now that Obama is replicating the New Deal by a factor of ten. Has he ever heard of the Roaring Twenties? Has he ever heard of the boom in the fifties and the sixties and the seventies? Has he ever heard of what happened in the 1980s? It never worked? This is the second time he’s said this in such a prominent way. Last time was when he made his speech, I guess it was in December, might have been January, the days run together so quickly now, in Osawatomie, Kansas, where he said, America, as founded, hasn’t worked.

For a country that has never worked – It sure works out well for community organizers.

    Rules for Radicals

    “One of the factors that changes what you can and can’t communicate is relationships. There are sensitive areas that one does not touch until there is a strong personal relationship based on common involvements. Otherwise the other party turns off and literally does not hear….

    “Conversely, if you have a good relationship, he is very receptive…. For example, I have always believed that birth control and abortion are personal rights to be exercised by the individual. If, in my early days when I organized… neighborhood in Chicago, which was 95 per cent Roman Catholic, I had tried to communicate this, even through the experience of the residents, whose economic plight was aggravated by large families, that would have been the end of my relationship with the community. That instant I would have been stamped as an enemy of the church and all communication would have ceased.

    “Some years later, after establishing solid relationships, I was free to talk about anything…. By then the argument was no longer limited to such questions as, ‘How much longer do you think the Catholic Church can hang on to this archaic notion and still survive?’ …the subject and nature of the discussion would have been unthinkable without that solid relationship.” pp.93-94

    Rush has it right.

    I remember during the 2008 campaign a Republican friend of mine said that she didn’t think Obama loved America. “I disagree with Joe Biden about everything, but he loves America. I can’t say that about Barack Obama.”

    I agreed with her then, and she has been proven right. Sad, but we as a people voted him in. Now we either correct our mistake or start the long slide towards collapse.

    1. The Purpose

    “A Marxist begins with his prime truth that all evils are caused by the exploitation of the proletariat by the capitalists. From this he logically proceeds to the revolution to end capitalism, then into the third stage of reorganization into a new social order of the dictatorship of the proletariat, and finally the last stage — the political paradise of communism.” p.10

    “An organizer working in and for an open society is in an ideological dilemma to begin with, he does not have a fixed truth — truth to him is relative and changing; everything to him is relative and changing…. To the extent that he is free from the shackles of dogma, he can respond to the realities of the widely different situations….” pp.10-11

    My dog had to push real hard this morning. But he finally “worked” his obama out and we bagged it quickly.

    Obama has been dumbing down America. He sings, He plays, He golfs, He vacations and the Celebrities are donating relentlessly. Have you ever wonder why he is so Arrogant. He is dumbing down Americans.

    Take the Occupiers:

    In this book, Rule for Radicals, we are concerned with how to create mass organizations to seize power and give it to the people; to realize the democratic dream of equality, justice, peace…. “Better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.’ This means revolution.” p.3

    “Radicals must be resilient, adaptable to shifting political circumstances, and sensitive enough to the process of action and reaction to avoid being trapped by their own tactics and forced to travel a road not of their choosing.” p.6

    RUSH, you’re wrong! America works . . . ..but, Ocommie never has! Right Clairebear?

    I think it is safely to say this is a clear example of Freudian projection.

    To Tom, #2:

    Speak for yourself. I did not vote him in and neither did any of my family. Know why? I vetted him – myself. An afternoon of study revealed the Marxist that is Obama. If Americans were willing to spend the same amout of time vetting politicians as they spend picking out a pair of shoes we wouldn’t be in this Socialist mess. So, when you say “we voted him in” count me out.

    The Manifesto argues that this development is inevitable, and that capitalism is inherently unstable. The Communists intend to promote this revolution, and will promote the parties and associations that are moving history towards its natural conclusion. They argue that the elimination of social classes cannot come about through reforms or changes in government. Rather, a revolution will be required.

    The Communist Manifesto has four sections. In the first section, it discusses the Communists’ theory of history and the relationship between proletarians and bourgeoisie. The second section explains the relationship between the Communists and the proletarians. The third section addresses the flaws in other, previous socialist literature. The final section discusses the relationship between the Communists and other parties.
    We never work, I tend to feel we have never worked harder and Capitalism has made us who we are.

    I guess it worked from the begging perfectly. Unless you were poor (couldn’t vote if you didn’t own land, abuse of workers, strike breaking), were black, a woman, Asian, a native American, a catholic, basically if you weren’t a wealthy white Protestant.

    I read obama’s quotes above, it’s just the same “we got to come together” rhetoric every president indulges in. Now suddenly it’s Marxism? Not a single one of you who has read Marx could believe obama’s a Marxist.

    This is who you trust for your commentary, a drug addict with no education. None of you know American history, none of you know a thing about political theory, and none of you can think critically.

    P.S. No I’m not a Marxist or any devivative thereof.

    usamopatriot commented:

    yes, but my point is, Obama is dumbing Americans down. They are the ones who just don’t care and vote for the sake of voting. They don’t see what he is doing to our country. Yes they are the uninformed and Obama could tell them anything being the new founded celebrity he is.

    “Obama learned his lesson well. I am proud to see that my father’s model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday.” –Letter from L. DAVID ALINSKY, son of Neo-Marxist Saul Alinsky

    Obama helped fund ‘Alinsky Academy’: “The Woods Fund, a nonprofit on which Obama served as paid director from 1999 to December 2002, provided startup funding and later capital to the Midwest Academy…. Obama sat on the Woods Fund board alongside William Ayers, founder of the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization…. ‘Midwest describes itself as ‘one of the nation’s oldest and best-known schools for community organizations, citizen organizations and individuals committed to progressive social change.’… Midwest teaches Alinsky tactics of community organizing.”

    without Gingrich having redirected the country, i can’t imagine where
    we’d be by now.. most likely wearing tents and bowing to Mecca, which
    is exactly where we’re headed now.. *sigh*

    I am beginning to believe he is the best man of the four for this nation. He knows his history. And that is a definite plus.
