Obama Goes On Crazy Socialist Rant: Your ‘On Your Own Economics’ Does Not Work

Obama also told the crowd, “Maybe I should just quit while I’m ahead.”

When was he ahead? Ahead on what?

Obama went off on some wild socialist rant at a campaign stop at the University of Vermont.
Real Clear Politics reported:

“You know, each of us is only here because somebody somewhere felt responsibility, yes to their families, but also to their fellow citizens. Also to our country’s future. That’s the American story. The American story is not just about what we do on our own. Yes, we’re rugged individualists, we expect personally responsibility and everybody out there has got to work hard and carry their weight,” President Obama said at a fundraiser with college students at the University of Vermont.

“We also have always understood that we wouldn’t win the race for new jobs and businesses, and middle class security if we were just applying some ‘you’re on your own economics,'” Obama said.

“It’s been tried in our history and it hasn’t worked,” Obama said. “It didn’t work when we tried it in the decade before the Great Depression. It didn’t work when we tried it in the last decade. We just tried this. What they’re peddling has been tried — it did not work!”

Didn’t socialist crackpot Elizabeth Warren already give this crazy speech?

    If he really wanted to quit while he was ahead, he’d have resigned after a year in office.

    The lemmings that attend his rallies have to, in their blackened hearts, know something is wrong. You can see it in their eyes-they f*cked up and just won’t admit that they were wrong. But they are so stupid that they will vote for him again. That’s what they are told to do and they will dutifully do it

    Is biting his lower lip a la Clinton a new thing, or has he always done that?

    By the way, Dopey, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol-Pot, Hitler and Castro didn’t work either. Or hadn’t you noticed?

    First of all, the jacket thing, taking it off and then rolling up his sleeves. PLEASE OBAMA, your build or you buy for a flattery vote is getting tired and old. Just like you Rhetoric.

    OH, please someone explain to me what the hell he is talking about? GEESH!!

    I have to report: BARF ALERT, when he does that it is GROSS!

    He is trying desperately to get his MOJO back.

  • Patty

    Let’s see this guy for once in his 3 years run on his record…I dare him. He can’t, he has no plan for America and he was never the guy with experience enough to lead. Period.

  • Patty

    Is he going to break out in song or shake his body. Seems MO loves it. Good Grief, this presidency has disgraced the office.

    Hell, Barry be right. It didn’t work in the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s or 90’s either, right blood?

    Why does he only campaign at universities? Grown ups see through him and don’t believe a word he says. If there is a young mind out there ready to be molded into Obama’s agenda, he’ll find it and pander to it.

    This guy is a CREEP.

  • Redwine

    They cheered after he said, “I’m here”???

    The lip-licking is due to drugs.

  • Practical Jane

    He’s speaking to children educated in the lefty propaganda of the last few decades. He believes he can convince them he’s right, and be prepared – he may be able to. This man is nuts, but so is most of Europe, and I can’t tell you how often I hear young people talk about how much better they perceive Canada or Europe to be all because of the promise of ‘free’ perks. Don’t assume that just because adults can hear the madness in him that his method won’t work on the kids.

    Nobody outside of a college, union hall, or gov’t building believes a frickin’ word that flies out of his commie mouth. He knows it and his administration knows it. Think about it-the dems in congress don’t even venture out this protected area. And they live there.

    Was he about to dangle a cigarette out of his mouth,put up the collar ,give us a James Dean,Marlon Brando line from a movie…Hey Barry ,the “to cool for school” attitude has grow very old..

  • Another college, huh Barry?
    They’re the only people left who still believe your lies. Wait’ll they get a load of the debt he’s unloaded onto their shoulders in his attempt to make him appear godlike to them.

    Boy… are they gonna be pissed-off!


  • bg


    he wants his rEVOLution, period

    [Boss and Obama, however, had a starkly different view. They believed that the economic stresses of the Carter years meant revolution was still imminent. The election of Reagan was simply a minor set-back in terms of the coming revolution. As I recall, Obama repeatedly used the phrase “When the revolution comes….” In my mind, I remember thinking that Obama was blindly sticking to the simple Marxist theory that had characterized my own views while I was an undergraduate at Occidental College. “There’s going to be a revolution,” Obama said, “we need to be organized and grow the movement.” In Obama’s view, our role must be to educate others so that we might usher in more quickly this inevitable revolution.]

  • Economan

    I wish he would quit so WE can re-grow the economy. He’s done nothing but waste trillion and nothing to show for it.

  • I think he’s starting to lose the plot. Just what the hell does any of this mean? Maybe he’s just taking after his Solicitor General who all but threw up on his shoes in court this week. Curly Howard takes the stand … http://bit.ly/qVdDUt

  • Michel

    Yeah – how is that Obamanomics working out? Double the unemployment number, double the price of gas, sinking housing prices, rising inflation, skyrocketing debt. This is an improvement? this model is somehow better than the last decade? How?

  • mcc

    I was sent this the other day…Barry’s counting on the crowd at this university being alot like the young people in this video (scroll down to “View 180”) — he won’t want them to have a chat with this guy:


  • Jim

    The only era of American society that even remotely come close to Obama’s dream is pre-civil war plantation life. If he want to impliment the “master-slave” “don’t worry, be happy” way of life so be it. I’ll sign up for the master part.

  • Obamas regulation destroy jobs

    He just let hundreds of Syrian brotherhood hamas muslim supporters into US permanently!
    Yep no immigration for them! (http://www.debbieschlussel.com/).

  • olm

    I have a family member who was at one of his recent speeches. This family member is what I would call can squishy middle of the road voter. Voted for Obama in 08.
    He came away saying that “Obama is a jerk”
    Ha. At the rate he is going, Obama is going to have to stop campaigning, or just do it from remote locations. His current method is not working for him.

  • This coming from man who’s never held a real job…..

  • just-saying

    I think Obummer’s (going) insane.

  • Tom Doniphon

    Obama just bitch slapped JohnnyMac in ’08 with that “don’t call me Hussein” BS, huh??

  • Joe College

    I think he won the Obamacare case and he’s high on victory.

    The SCOTUS held their voting meeting this morning. He gave this speech this afternoon. The press says only the 9 justices know the voting outcome, but I do not believe for one minute that Elena Kagen did not signal her boss the voting outcome as soon as she left the room.

    The Obama we’re seeing at this event is an Obama high on victory. This is not a man who had a bad week.

  • KansasGirl

    This coming from a man who hasn’t earned a honest paycheck in his life!

  • donh

    Given the historical legacy of slavery and how many men died to end it, very very disappointing to hear a black man complain about ” being on your own ” economics.

  • banshee

    The only current way to win the race for jobs is to move overseas. Jobs are fleeing us.

  • grouper

    @JoeC: “The Obama we’re seeing at this event is an Obama high on victory. This is not a man who had a bad week.”

    Well … he’s certainly high on something …

  • lethargic

    He says “I’m here” and “ya know” and the crowd screams. He takes off his suit coat and the crowd screams … I was wondering if I was going to see underpants being tossed at him … creepy …

  • Chemical Conservative

    For him, this is normal.


    The Democratic Party attempts to hide/deny who this man really is. I just hope that enough voters are waking up so that we can get him out of office.

    Joe, I think he is just basking in the outpouring of love from his adoring fans. This is what he craves. Worshippers who let him know that they think he is as wonderful as he thinks he is. Plus, he probably had a few snorts before the event.

    re missing link

    ‘I asked Drew where, precisely, he believes Obama stands today. Of course, Drew no longer knows Obama, and his main goal in reaching out to me was to clarify where Obama stood at Occidental, which is information that cannot be ignored. That said, he did tell me this: “There are a lot of brands of Marxism. That was one of the key ingredients of my argument with the young Barack Obama. I see evidence of [a] continuing commitment to Marxist ideology every time President Obama traces the furor of the public to underlying economic conditions and inevitable changes taking place in society. In the Marxist model, the economy is the driving force behind change in the other spheres of society.”‘

    sounds like:

    Only the means are different for the various socialist branches, but the principle is the same for all: the end justifies the means. Joseph Goebbels, propaganda minister of Hitler, is quoted in Germany with the statement “… it is not for nothing that we have chosen the name National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP), because at heart we are Communists.” Briefing his generals before the invasion of the Soviet Union in June of 1941, Hitler told them that he wanted to bring them “real socialism.” His declared intention was to destroy the Christian churches after victory.’

    Surely he can’t be that crazy? Nevermind, he can and is. Reminds me of an inmate of an insane asylum insisting to everyone that he is Jesus Christ, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Napoleon, FDR, Adolf Hitler and Mao Tse Tong rolled into one. We have that lunatic running the U.S.

  • jorgen

    Obama has proven that affirmative action does not work!

  • YourMaster

    >.> OMFG…. to say 0bama deceptive… would be an understatement

    ….the reason why we have insane gas prices going on $6.00 and up.
    is that libs are the ones that have ALWAYS blocked the use and the drilling of our own naturally resources… …so it’s not that we’ve tried it and it doesn’t work like Mr 0bama the marxist says….

    it’s that…. they’ve never tried it, period…. because whenever it was brought up….
    Liberals/democrats found a way to either sidestep the issue or totally and completely block it preventing it’s use ….Which, they can’t deny reality….

    had it been done even 10-15 yrs ago we would be faced with increasingly High as f*ck gas prices! ….voters are now fully aware what the president it doing regarding No drilling on federal lands… and that he has been DELAYING the keystone pipeline…

    I don’t know how he plans to be in office in November…. Can’t you sense the desperation from the libs? …they know something is wrong with their policies/liberalism….

    but can’t explain why it isn’t working – all they can do is demonize the republicans. *lmao* …which they don’t seem to see isn’t working out to well for them now.
