Yup. He’s a Socialist… Barack Obama: “A New Vision Of An America In Which Prosperity Is Shared” (Video)

Can we call him a socialist now?
This past weekend in Chicago Barack Obama promoted,
“A new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared.”

He used to try to hide his radical socialist beliefs.
Now he doesn’t give a damn.

Via Real Clear Politics:

“Too many folks still don’t have a sense that tomorrow will be better than today. And so, the question in this election is which way do we go?” President Obama asked at a fundraiser in Chicago on Sunday.

“Do we go forward towards a new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared?” Obama asked. “Or do we go backward to the same policies that got us in the mess in the first place? I believe we have to go forward.”

    “Do we go forward towards a new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared?”

    Hey Mr. Marxist, how about if we go back to a vision of America in which prosperity is earned.

  • Bill Mitchell

    Not that it matters but Obama is down 3+ points on Intrade today.

    I honestly wonder what games Gallup is playing to show NO CHANGE in the Presidential race after the Ryan pick?

    Obama campaign – please keep saying “FORWARD”. Please ask your candidate to keep asking us of MORE of him. Please never stop. Please keep repeating that Obama wants us to keep doing more of the same things he has been doing. Please.

    It’s like a gift whenever I hear him ask us for moving forward with his Valerie Jarret – David Axelrod – Michelle Obama dominated (creepily dysfunctional White House and Cabinet) Administration.

    Keep it coming, kids. We need that kind of support on the Restore and Recover Team.

    Which Way, America?

    (A) The way of the Founders/Framers
    or
    (B) The way of the EU/USSR/UN model

    There’s no middle road.

    Under (A) rights are inalienable, inherent in simply existing. Government exists, with the consent of the governed, solely to protect those rights.

    Under (B) rights are “granted” by government which exists unto itself regardless of the consent of the governed, acting as the final arbiter. Here, what government “gives” can as easily be taken away.

    Well, fellow Americans, which do you want, (A) or (B)? There is no other choice.

    The idea of centralism was always a false premise. Moving toward a “compromising center” always means abandoning your founding principles. And you will note that all “compromise” moves in one direction only, toward that of more government.

    Do we want freedom FROM government via limited, constitutional government whereby government itself is bound by law, or do we want total government. There is no middle position. Madison (Fed. 51) put it this way, “If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself. A dependence on the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions.”

    Rather than government being dependent on the people, as Madison et alia had hoped, today we witness Obama and his crowd of his crowd of leftists (including all historical lefties from Wilson, FDR, LBJ, et alia) inverting the Framers’ ideal to the point that the people, and as many as possible, must be made dependent on the government which will then go after the producers (“tax the rich” is their shibboleth) with a vengeance, a taste of which has been given to us beginning on 01/20/09.

    Obama’s definition of “shared prosperity” is:

    You want to know what is wrong with liberals? Their brains are full of pseudo-intellectual gobbledygook.

    Here is Marx:

    In a higher phase of communist society, after the enslaving subordination of the individual to the division of labor, and therewith also the antithesis between mental and physical labor, has vanished; after labor has become not only a means of life but life’s prime want; after the productive forces have also increased with the all-around development of the individual, and all the springs of co-operative wealth flow more abundantly—only then can the narrow horizon of bourgeois right be crossed in its entirety and society inscribe on its banners: From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs!”

    No you tell me, what the F*CK is he talking about?

  • Jet Jaguar

    Give $100 to a beggar and watch him share with the other beggars. Yeah, right.

  • derpHoft

    “These are plans for implementation, reducing the cost of government, reducing the burden on the people and getting a prosperity that will be shared by all.”

    – That Socialist Ronald Reagan in 1980.

  • dwd

    Here’s the thing about “shared prosperity” … everyone getting everything equally sounds good, but if everyone is POOR then they are equally sharing their prosperity. That’s the end result of socialism, everyone is poor — except the select elite few who rule us all, which is what Obama wants to be.

    The “shared prosperity” Obama promises is trickle-up poverty. We’re already seeing it happen. But as long as everyone is more equal, even if that “equality” is achieved by bringing the upper and middle classes down to the level of the lower classes, in Obama’s mind that’s preferable.

    Don’t build others up, punish success and tear people down. That’s the Obama way.

    A great deal hangs on this election. If BO is re-elected, he will take that as America’s answer to answer to #5’s WHICH WAY question.

    Controlling how history is “taught” has been rewarding to the Left. A people that forgets how it arrived at its present station in life is quite likely to lose the skills necessary to sustain that station. The ever-expanding welfare class, dependent on others for their living, is evidence that America is forgetting.

    From our perspective “public” education is an utter disaster. But for the Left having captured lots of cultural institutions, with public schooling being one of the most critical, has allowed it and its government-dependent, rabid minions to control the discourse.

  • Marmo

    Wow, what a dilemma. Do I want to go forward into a communist hell-hole future, or do I want our country pulled from the brink and the government release the reins of a free market?

  • SamAxe

    There are two types of people, parasites and producers. The left wants to “breed” so many parasites so that can out number and enslave the producers, getting the parasites to hate the producers and love the government for “spreading the wealth”. The funny thing is the leftist leaders are all are parasites who have actually convinced themselves they are the producers and that the producers are the parasites (hence the 99% vs the 1% crap).

  • MicahStone

    The 2012 presidential vote comes down to two competing visions:

    Romney will give ALL Americans the opportunity to have a job, dignity, self-respect, independence and solid chance to be highly successful and enjoy the benefits of an open, free-market society in which the separate interest groups are not in a mutually destructive war amongst themselves.

    OBOZO will continue to give selected ethnic, racial, gender, sexual-preference and religious groups benefits and OTHER PEOPLES’ MONEY, encouraging hostility and social war amongst the groups while keeping them all as slugs, slackers, deadbeats, losers, and slaves to a big government nanny state which will ultimately fail as catastrophically as europe has.

    The key question on which the outcome of the election depends = has the existing socialist entitlement state sucked-in enough of the latter to overcome the former or not? (In other words, has American society been subverted sufficiently by the d-cRAT socialist extremists that it has tipped into the death spiral of ever increasing entitlements and government intervention and control that leads to the end of the socialist/communist “Road to Hell”?)

    What about shared effort and workload then Obigears ???? Oh yeah I forgot you gutted that for welfare.

    Well then what about shared repsonsibility like not getting pregnant and having kids they cant afford like the rest of us ???

    I bet that means we all get to come and share the Whitehouse, concerts, golf course and Air Force 1 since we all pay for it right ????

  • Marmo

    So, derpHoft, you’re arguing that Reagan, by saying he wanted to reduce the cost of government and reduce the tax burden to get a prosperity shared by all was actually trying to implement a socialist government? I think it was an unusually poor choice of words.

    Whereas Obama is clearly differentiating himself from Romney’s plan of reigning in government and letting the free markets work. Let’s be honest. Obama wants to increase dependeny on government and Romney does not. Can you agree with that?

  • derpHoft

    @ Winston Wolfe

    Of course I do, but where in the above post is Obama stating “the government mandating the sharing of said prosperity”?

  • Mad Hatter

    derpHoft,

    You left out a few important facts about the Reagan quote,

    “These are plans for implementation of reducing cost of government, reducing the tax burden on the people and getting a prosperity that will be shared by all.”

    Translate, to get lower taxes, so people can keep more of what they earned.

    Nice try in a failed attempt to say he’s a Socialist.

    I disagree with that. I would not say that he wants to increase dependency on government. I’d say he wants to have the same economic policies that were in place from the 1940s to the 1970s when we had a strong middle class in this country: increases in minimum wage, investment in the social safety net, progressive taxation and effective financial regulation.

    _____

    I think that YOU have missed the point. First, context counts. Obama’s context is quite different from Reagan’s.

    There are a number of things about Obama that make him not only a socialist, but more likely a communist.

    1. His mother and both of her parents who raised him were known members of the Communist party. Mama graduated from a high school in a WA state community that they moved to specifically because of the “curriculum.”

    2. His rhetoric is and has been right along literally an echo chamber of socialist sound bites.

    3. His membership in the New Party in Chicago.

    Thanks for a thoughtful reply. Increases in the minimum wage seem beneficial to workers, but hurt businesses, which in turn hurt workers. Obama is certainly investing in the social safety net, but you can’t really call it an investment. It’s spending. Nobody wants for there to be absolutely no safety net, but Obama dropped the work requirement from welfare. He puts out ads urging people to sign up for welfare. He recruits participation of government dependency.

    We already have progressive taxation and the highest corporate income tax rates in the world.

    Yes to financial regulation. But why is Obama encouraging bankers to once again loan money to people at risk of not paying the money back? This is how the whole financial mess started.

  • befuddled

    Obama is only a socialist when he needs votes or when he needs money from those guilty rich Hollywood types. It’s easy to talk about spreading the wealth around when you can steal 500 million from the taxpayers to support your crony Oklahoma oil buddy.

    Voted NO on modifying bankruptcy rules to avoid mortgage foreclosures. (Mar 2009)
    Voted NO on additional $825 billion for economic recovery package. (Jan 2009)
    Voted NO on monitoring TARP funds to ensure more mortgage relief. (Jan 2009)
    Voted YES on $15B bailout for GM and Chrysler. (Dec 2008)
    Voted NO on $60B stimulus package for jobs, infrastructure, & energy. (Sep 2008)
    Voted NO on defining “energy emergency” on federal gas prices. (Jun 2008)
    Voted NO on revitalizing severely distressed public housing. (Jan 2008)

    Paul Ryan in an interview with Daily Caller explains – very well – his votes on TARP and AIG bailout (when he was told – like all the rest of Congress – that our country was in crisis and none of us would be able to get money from our ATM machines without this kind of vote)

    Ya’ll must remember this moment in Obama’s campaign in 2008 when both McCain and he suspended their campaigns to address the crash of September 2008?

    “Yup. He’s a Socialst…”

    Nothing gets Team BO running faster to DENY, DEFLECT, and DESTROY.

    Soooo, I’ll do my bit. Let’s connect the dots:

    Despite the mass media news blackout, a series of books, talk radio and the blogosphere have managed to expose Barack Obama’s connections to his radical mentors — Weather Underground bombers William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis and others. David Horowitz and his Discover the Networks.org have also contributed a wealth of information and have noted Obama’s radical connections since the beginning.

    Yet, no one to my knowledge has yet connected all the dots between Barack Obama and the Radical Left. When seen together, the influences on Obama’s life comprise a who’s who of the radical leftist movement, and it becomes painfully apparent that not only is Obama a willing participant in that movement, he has spent most of his adult life deeply immersed in it.

    But even this doesn’t fully describe the extreme nature of this candidate. He can be tied directly to a malevolent overarching strategy that has motivated many, if not all, of the most destructive radical leftist organizations in the United States since the 1960s.

    Obama In Iowa: “Michelle Has Told Me I Cannot Have A Fried Twinkie”

    Obama campaigns in Iowa, talks about visiting the state fair: “I think that I’m going to end at the state fair. Michelle has told me I cannot have a fried twinkie. But I will be checking out the butter cow and I understand this year there is a chocolate moose. I’m going to have to take a look at that if I can. The last time I went to the state fair the Secret Service let me do the bumper cars, but they said this year — I wasn’t president yet so I could do that, but not this time.”

    The Obama curtain and his team are up to their neck in corporate chums. Are you friggin kidding? Big Pharm? Afsme? Trumka? Soros?

    Why haven’t we seen Barry’s COLUMBIA TRANSCRIPTS? Why does no one remember him? Was he actually attending school? Or sitting at the knee of CLOWARD and PIVEN?

    From my link above:

    One of two things must be true. Either the Democrats are unfathomable idiots, who ignorantly pursue ever more destructive policies despite decades of contrary evidence, or they understand the consequences of their actions and relentlessly carry on anyway because they somehow benefit.

    I submit to you they understand the consequences. For many it is simply a practical matter of eliciting votes from a targeted constituency at taxpayer expense; we lose a little, they gain a lot, and the politician keeps his job. But for others, the goal is more malevolent – the failure is deliberate. Don’t laugh. This method not only has its proponents, it has a name: the Cloward-Piven Strategy. It describes their agenda, tactics, and long-term strategy.

    The Strategy was first elucidated in the May 2, 1966 issue of The Nation magazine by a pair of radical socialist Columbia University professors, Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. David Horowitz summarizes it as:

    The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.

    Cloward and Piven were inspired by radical organizer [and Hillary Clinton mentor] Saul Alinsky:

    “Make the enemy live up to their (sic) own book of rules,” Alinsky wrote in his 1989 book Rules for Radicals. When pressed to honor every word of every law and statute, every Judeo-Christian moral tenet, and every implicit promise of the liberal social contract, human agencies inevitably fall short. The system’s failure to “live up” to its rule book can then be used to discredit it altogether, and to replace the capitalist “rule book” with a socialist one. (Courtesy Discover the Networks.org)

    As a Community Organizer, Barry taught Alinsky methods (you know the stuff Alinsky DEDICATED TO LUCIFER – that’s the sorry truth) – he was especially good at it, it was said…

    No surprise there. We all must have our gifts.

    4 Pinocchios for Obama’s newest anti-Romney ad

    [The Obama campaign fails to make its case. On just about every level,
    this ad is misleading, unfair and untrue, from the use of “corporate raider”
    to its examples of alleged outsourcing. Simply repeating the same
    debunked claims won’t make them any more correct.]

    July 2, 2012

    Obama’s new attacks on Romney and outsourcing

    [The Obama campaign moved quickly to define what the article
    said, claiming that this transfer of jobs took place while Romney
    ran Bain. That’s not what the original article said.

    Yet the campaign clearly seized on this report because their
    interpretation fit with a long-term “outsourcing” attack they
    have waged against Romney. One of their outsourcing ads
    before the article ran, in fact, earned Four Pinocchios. These
    new ads would not fare much better; there is little in the Post
    article that backs up the Obama campaign’s spin.]

    btw, they essentially gave it 4 Pinocchio’s, however, they
    managed to gave a lame cop-out grade anyways, go fig..

    NOW, IS THIS NOT THE PICTURE OF AMERICA THE LAST FEW YEARS?

    More from my link above:

    Their strategy to create political, financial, and social chaos that would result in revolution blended Alinsky concepts with their more aggressive efforts at bringing about a change in U.S. government. To achieve their revolutionary change, Cloward and Piven sought to use a cadre of aggressive organizers assisted by friendly news media to force a re-distribution of the nation’s wealth.

    In their Nation article, Cloward and Piven were specific about the kind of “crisis” they were trying to create:

    By crisis, we mean a publicly visible disruption in some institutional sphere. Crisis can occur spontaneously (e.g., riots) or as the intended result of tactics of demonstration and protest which either generate institutional disruption or bring unrecognized disruption to public attention.

    No matter where the strategy is implemented, it shares the following features:

    1.The offensive organizes previously unorganized groups eligible for government benefits but not currently receiving all they can.
    2.The offensive seeks to identify new beneficiaries and/or create new benefits.
    3.The overarching aim is always to impose new stresses on target systems, with the ultimate goal of forcing their collapse.

    Progressive taxation – barely
    Highest corporate income tax rates. Not really if you look at effective corporate tax rates.

    Yes to financial regulation. But why is Obama encouraging bankers to once again loan money to people at risk of not paying the money back? This is how the whole financial mess started.

    You’ll need to give me some reference as to where Obama is encouraging high-risk loans, but in a broader sense bankers need to keep making loans to keep the economy running. And mortgage defaults were merely the straw that broke the camel’s back, the financial mess started well before that with deregulation (see Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000).

    OH, BARRY…SAY IT AIN’T SO —

    Obama aided ACORN as their lead attorney in a successful suit he brought against the Illinois state government to implement the Motor Voter law there. The law had been resisted by Republican Governor Jim Edgars, who feared the law was an opening to widespread vote fraud.

    His fears were warranted as the Motor Voter law has since been cited as a major opportunity for vote fraud, especially for illegal immigrants, even terrorists. According to the Wall Street Journal: “After 9/11, the Justice Department found that eight of the 19 hijackers were registered to vote…”

    ACORN’s dual offensives on voting and illegal immigration are handy complements. Both swell the voter rolls with reliable democrats while assaulting the country ACORN seeks to destroy with overwhelming new problems.

    Didn’t he do enough way back when…

    ACORN showed its colors again in 1991, by taking over the House Banking Committee room for two days to protest efforts to scale back the CRA. Obama represented ACORN in the Buycks-Roberson v. Citibank Fed. Sav. Bank, 1994 suit against redlining. Most significant of all, ACORN was the driving force behind a 1995 regulatory revision pushed through by the Clinton Administration that greatly expanded the CRA and laid the groundwork for the Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac borne financial crisis we now confront. Barack Obama was the attorney representing ACORN in this effort. With this new authority, ACORN used its subsidiary, ACORN Housing, to promote subprime loans more aggressively.

    As a New York Post article describes it:

    A 1995 strengthening of the Community Reinvestment Act required banks to find ways to provide mortgages to their poorer communities. It also let community activists intervene at yearly bank reviews, shaking the banks down for large pots of money.

    Banks that got poor reviews were punished; some saw their merger plans frustrated; others faced direct legal challenges by the Justice Department.

Obama sought and received the New Party’s endorsement, and they assisted with his campaign. The New Party also developed a strong relationship with ACORN.

Now investment firms could bundle real estate backed securities and derivatives based upon these worthless, destined to fail, mortgage portfolios and sell them to their customers who were led to believe they could expect an excellent return on their money.

    Wall Street Legend Sandy Weill: Break Up the Big Banks

    July 28, 2012

    Even the Guy Who Destroyed Glass-Steagall Wants it Back Now

    [I find it galling when an ill-informed leftist tries to debate the role of
    government with a Tea Party advocate and goes to the tired argument,
    “Since you’re against paying taxes, I guess you don’t want paved roads
    or police or firefighters!” Somewhere, somehow a large number of people
    seemed to have picked up the erroneous notion that we are anarchists.
    We are not. We understand the role of taxes and the role of government.
    What we take exception to, however, is the flagrant disregard for other
    peoples’ money and the ever-expanding role of government in citizens’
    lives. We object not to the existence of either tax obligations nor
    government; we object to the sheer size of both.

    To that end, people are often dumbfounded when I explain to them
    that I am not against minimal banking regulations. Capitalism functions
    best with minimal regulation, not when it’s a free-for-all. In the wake
    of our economic catastrophe, there has been much talk as to who’s
    at fault. I am of the belief that there were many factors; numerous
    pillars of our economy crumbled nearly simultaneously. While the left
    love to point the finger at a lack of banking regulations, it was the
    arm-twisting of banks by the government to take on toxic loans that
    could and would never be repaid. It was a hostile environment
    towards business. It was over-unionization, and yes, it was also the
    absence of one vital piece of banking regulation that helped bring us
    to where we are at. Yes, I’m talking about Glass-Steagall.]

    Burning Down The House: What Caused Our Economic Crisis? (#57)

    ==

  • mcc

    YOU MEAN TO TELL ME BARRY’S NOT WHO HE SAID HE IS???

    As a community activist for ACORN; as a leadership trainer for ACORN; as a lead organizer for ACORN’s Project Vote; as an attorney representing ACORN’s successful efforts to impose Motor Voter regulations in Illinois; as ACORN’s representative in lobbying for the expansion of high risk housing loans through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that led to the current crisis; as a recipient of their assistance in his political campaigns — both with money and campaign workers; it is doubtful that he was unaware of ACORN’s true goals. It is doubtful he was unaware of the Cloward-Piven Strategy.

    Fast-forward to 2005 when an obsequious, servile and scraping Daniel Mudd, CEO of Fannie Mae spoke at the Congressional Black Caucus swearing in ceremony for newly-elected Illinois Senator, Barack Obama. Mudd called, the Congressional Black Caucus “our family” and “the conscience of Fannie Mae.”

    In 2005, Republicans sought to rein in Fannie and Freddie. Senator John McCain was at the forefront of that effort. But it failed due to an intense lobbying effort put forward by Fannie and Freddie.

    In his few years as a U.S. senator, Obama has received campaign contributions of $126,349, from Fannie and Freddie, second only to the $165,400 received by Senator Chris Dodd, who has been getting donations from them since 1988. What makes Obama so special?

    His closest advisers are a dirty laundry list of individuals at the heart of the financial crisis: former Fannie Mae CEO Jim Johnson; Former Fannie Mae CEO and former Clinton Budget Director Frank Raines; and billionaire failed Superior Bank of Chicago Board Chair Penny Pritzker.

    Johnson had to step down as adviser on Obama’s V.P. search after this gem came out:

    An Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO) report[1] from September 2004 found that, during Johnson’s tenure as CEO, Fannie Mae had improperly deferred $200 million in expenses. This enabled top executives, including Johnson and his successor, Franklin Raines, to receive substantial bonuses in 1998.[2] A 2006 OFHEO report[3] found that Fannie Mae had substantially under-reported Johnson’s compensation. Originally reported as $6-7 million, Johnson actually received approximately $21 million.

    Obama denies ties to Raines but the Washington Post calls him a member of “Obama’s political circle.” Raines and Johnson were fined $3 million by the Office of Federal Housing Oversight for their manipulation of Fannie books. The fine is small change however, compared to the $50 million Raines was able to obtain in improper bonuses as a result of juggling the books.

    Most significantly, Penny Pritzker, the current Finance Chairperson of Obama’s presidential campaign helped develop the complicated investment bundling of subprime securities at the heart of the meltdown. She did so in her position as shareholder and board chair of Superior Bank. The Bank failed in 2001, one of the largest in recent history, wiping out $50 million in uninsured life savings of approximately 1,400 customers. She was named in a RICO class action law suit but doesn’t seem to have come out of it too badly.

    As a young attorney in the 1990s, Barack Obama represented ACORN in Washington in their successful efforts to expand Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) authority. In addition to making it easier for ACORN groups to force banks into making risky loans, this also paved the way for banks like Superior to package mortgages as investments, and for the Government Sponsored Enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to underwrite them. These changes created the conditions that ultimately lead to the current financial crisis.

    Did they not know this would occur? Were these smart people, led by a Harvard graduate, unaware of the Econ 101 concept of moral hazard that would result from the government making implicit guarantees to underwrite private sector financial risk? They should have known that freeing the high-risk mortgage market of risk, calamity was sure to ensue. I think they did.

    *****Barack Obama, the Cloward-Piven candidate, no matter how he describes himself, has been a radical activist for most of his political career. That activism has been in support of organizations and initiatives that at their heart seek to tear the pillars of this nation asunder in order to replace them with their demented socialist vision. Their influence has spread so far and so wide that despite their blatant culpability in the current financial crisis, they are able to manipulate Capital Hill politicians to cut them into $140 billion of the bailout pie!

    God grant those few responsible yet remaining in Washington, DC the strength to prevent this massive fraud from occurring. God grant them the courage to stand up in the face of this Marxist tidal wave.*****

    Bill Clinton Admits “I Was Wrong”

    10 Years Later, Looking at Repeal of Glass-Steagall

    [But 10 years ago, the revocation of Glass-Steagall drew few critics. In
    the House, 155 Democrats and 207 Republicans voted for the measure,
    while 51 Democrats, 5 Republicans and 1 independent opposed it. Fifteen
    members did not vote.

    One of the leading voices of dissent was Senator Byron L. Dorgan,
    Democrat of North Dakota. He warned that reversing Glass-Steagall
    and implementing the Republican-backed Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act
    was a mistake whose repercussions would be felt in the future.

    “I think we will look back in 10 years’ time and say we should not have
    done this, but we did because we forgot the lessons of the past, and
    that that which is true in the 1930s is true in 2010,” Mr. Dorgan said
    10 years ago. “We have now decided in the name of modernization to
    forget the lessons of the past, of safety and of soundness.”

    Mr. Dorgan still feels the same way. “I thought reversing Glass-
    Steagall would set us up for dramatic failure and that is exactly
    what has happened,” the senator told DealBook on Thursday.
    “To fuse together the investment banking function with the
    F.D.I.C. banking function has proven to be a profound mistake.”]

    oh btw comprehension ace..

    [The law was chipped away at throughout the 80′s with
    “reinterpretations” of the law and tricky maneuvering. Finally,
    in 1998, Sandy Weill and John Reed merged Traveler’s Insurance
    Group with Citicorp to form Citigroup and put the last nail in the
    coffin of Glass-Steagall. The creation of the financial supermarket
    and simultaneous eradication of Glass-Steagall provided millions
    of dollars for those involved, contributed to a volatile market and
    helped create the atmosphere of hostility the left shows towards
    anyone that makes more than minimum wage. Thanks to the leaders
    of these financial supermarkets, we must now endure years of
    unnecessary governmental regulations, such as the Dodd-Frank Act.

    [..]

    Ridiculously enough, former Senator Chris Dodd, best known as one
    -half of the geniuses that brought us the catastrophic Dodd-Frank
    Act, has declared that he is against splitting up the banks. The one
    financial provision that allows for an accurate risk/benefit analysis on
    the part of the investor, Dodd is against. However, his convoluted Act
    that demonizes risk, ties the hands of lending institutions and passes
    costs onto consumers, is A-okay.]

    ps: the Reps are the new Dems, the old Dems are the new Progs =
    same as the old Commies by any other name, and albeit both suck,

    But the most shocking revelation….you and I can actually agree on something: Bring back Glass-Steagal.

    Causes of 2008 finacial collapse

    No, it wasn’t specifically the CRA, but the problem was toxic mortgages. Nobody is blameless in this, so it’s not really a debatable issue as to who caused it.

    Obama pushes banks to make bad loans

    As for increasing entitlement spending (government dependency) , ok so Obama granted the states the ability to waive work requirements for welfare recipients. Valerie Jarrett and Pelosi have both said that unemployment checks stimulate the economy. Ag Secretary Vilsack said food stamps stimulate the economy. No wonder spending and participation in these two areas has dramatically increased. You can Google these things yourself.

    None of these elected posts are forever. If Obama is defeated, and the govt changes over, then after 4 yrs he can run again and be elected again.That would be horrible. But the Congress is not for life either.
    Let’s throw a lot of them out including some do-nothing 2010er Gops.Try someone else with conservative ideas Then in 2 years the prior occupant(s) can stage a come-back.
    Lets throw out the current president and his junta and get some new ideas. That is the specialty of the USA, try something else. That is the way it was planned in the 1780’s, I beleive.
    this current plan is not working.
    Are we going to be free or subjects to a huge govt with life-time masters? Let’s try free again.

    After 4 years of rampant unemployment and underemployment (for which he/they did nothing to make an atmosphere in which there was work–and often the opposite), I’m gathering Obama & friends’ blatant coming out with socialist ideology means they think the time is finally ripe that people will gladly accept their fundamental change of America.

    But I’m going to guess, this doesn’t include their wealth. After all, that’s their’s–they built that wealth, right?

  • BarbaraS

    He doesn’t practice what he preaches, does he? I haven’t seen him sharing doodlum squat.

  • Flintstone F.

    3 1/2 years of economic standstill, is old and tired. Obama’s policies are old and tired. The mess he speaks of, as if he’s just stumbled upon it with five months left in his term, is old and tired.

    The policies of the past and present are Obama’s. He’s been rolling around in the mess more than anybody else.

    “You didn’t build that…”
    “You need to spread the wealth around…”
    “…a new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared.”
    “Your energy costs will necessarily skyrocket…”
    “We need to slow society down so that technology can catch up…”

    (I’m sure there’s more on his list of leftist/commie statements).

  • kathteach

    Hmmmm….hwy folks. This bozo poster wants to intimidate poor old me – kathteach. This forum is one of the only places I feel comfy……are we OK with this?

    BTW – I am not their Mrs. Kerrigan – have no idea who they are…or what they mean with that reference……and they kind of give me the creeps for a minute but no – wait…..I get that they are Axelrod folks and THEY get that I and others who read this forum regularly are ON TO THEM,

    OK – now I feel better. And all I can say is they better expect all of us in November……behind every blade of grass in America will be a VOTER (and almost all of us will be in the flyover country of the Midwest). Take that you big city punks on both coasts.

    I suggest\est that they NOT quiet themselves down at all. Keep the Baloney Sausage coming. We need your BS to remind us all of the mistake we made in 2008 with Obama. Keep it coming, looney left. We are so sick of you all – you have no idea.

    However – you will get the idea in November.

    I can’t wait.

    I still do not know how to italicize their comment but here it is:

    I suggest you quiet yourself down Mrs Kerrigan. We’re on to you, we don’t forgive and we don’t forget. Expect us.

    just tell them to take a long walk off a short pier and forget about
    them, most in here can spot a troll by the first few words they use,
    ergo, don’t pay much attention to them.. lest of course it’s to post
    facts aimed to smash their pumpkins, i mean rebut their insanity, uh,
    whatever.. 😀

    Remarkable to see Obama campaign as if he has not been the POTUS for the past 4 years. Like he’s running against an incumbent. lol. Nobody thinks to ask: where have you been the past 4 years? What have you done for us? Why didn’t you do what you’re promising now during your first term?

  • Tom

    Why is anyone surprised by statements like these from Obama? He has been a Marxisit since his college days. The Democrats and his compliant useful idiots in the major media has disgued Obama as a middle liberal Democrat, or maybe a Socialist- but his philosophy and world view have always been far more radical and he is in fact a Marxist.

    The policies he has implemented and Deion’s he’s has taken the last 3 years show his hand. He can never come out and really say whO he is but if he gets reflected he will attempt to grab yet more power to transform this nation. Voters need to be aware and understand Obama will lie, cheat, steal, and stop at nothing to get reflected. We better all wake up or it will be too late for this country.
