MITT HAMMERS OBAMA OVER SHOCKING TAPE! “He Wants Redistribution – I Disagree!” (Video)

That was quick…
Less than an hour ago Drudge posted video of Barack Obama telling an audience in 1998 that he believes in redistribution of wealth. Mitt Romney was just on Your World with Cavuto and hammered the president over this shocking admission.
“He wants redistribution of wealth. I disagree.”

Mitt Romney on Barack Obama:

“Frankly we have two very different views about America. The president’s view is one of a larger government. There’s a tape that just came out today where the president is saying he likes redistribution. I disagree. I think a society based upon a government-centered nation where government plays a larger and larger role, redistributes money, that’s the wrong course for America. That will not build a strong America or help people out of poverty. I believe the right course for America is one where government steps in to help those who are in need. We’re a compassionate people. But then we let people build their own lives… We believe in free people and free enterprises.”

Nice answer, Mitt.

    Obama believes in the redistribution of the wealth of other people, not his own – just like all of those narcissistic socialists who believe they are above others and should rule over the peons. Did Obama ever donate the million he was suppose to have received from the Nobel Peace Prize?

  • gman

    I like the aggressive Mitt. Go after Obama. Go after the media. Fire up conservatives and we will win.

  • Finncrisp

    This is exactly what this election is about. Both candidates have said this is about what kind of nation we have looking ahead – and thay are both right. Pick Barry – you get misery, eugenics, depression, and death economically and physically.

    Pick Mitt – you get a pipeline, no obamaeugenics, lower taxes, less regulation, a shot at regrowing the ecomomy.

    As Admiral Yamamoto famously said after attacking Pearl Harbor:

    “I fear that we have awakened a sleeping giant and filled him with terrible resolve…”

    I have never seen Romney looking so confident and on point. The Left, by releasing this tape thought that they were destroying Romney when instead they were given Romney the platform he has been looking for.

    Way to go Romney. .

    But it is more than different visions. . .it is about Obama’s FAILED Economic policies that sprouts from his mis-guided socialists principles. . .

    Look at History. .centralized planning failed in USSR and China. . and Socialism implodes when socialists run out of other people’s money to spend. . .

    No system is perfect because man is imperfect. . .but capitalism creates the competition to keep keep power distributed. . .one of the reasons monopolies are bad. . so think of Socialism as a government Monopoly. . OH NO!!!!

  • Jon

    The left confuses ideals with responsibility. The ideal is that we help our fellow man in any way we can being charitable and kind. That does not mean that the responsibility to do that falls to the government. When people help people the tendency is to be greatful, when the goverment steps in and helps people the tendency is to become entitled. Republicans really need to make a concerted effort to show that they are compassionate caring people. If someone legitimately needs help they shouldn’t have to go to the government for that help. The ball swings both ways though, when the government steps in and does all the helping good honest people lose their sense of duty to their fellow man and in turn stop feeling that they should have to contribute in any way.

    The Data Behind Romney’s 47% Comments

    According to the Census Bureau, 49% of Americans in the second quarter of 2011 lived in a household where at least one member received a government benefit. (The total population at the time was 305 million).

    That’s up from 30% in the 1980s and 44.4% in the third quarter of 2008, a recent growth in part attributable to the bad economy of President Obama’s first term.

    The Census Bureau broke the data down like this:

    26.4% of U.S. households had someone enrolled in Medicaid (the health-care program for low-income Americans)
    16.2% of households had at least one member receiving Social Security.
    15.8% lived in a household receiving food stamps
    14.9% had a member with Medicare benefits
    4.5% of households received assistance with their rent
    1.7% had a member receiving unemployment benefits.

    The large majority of Medicare and Social Security recipients have paid payroll taxes in many cases for decades to qualify for those benefits.


  • Patty

    Jim Geraghty and Alexis de Tocqueville on the 47 percent

    Where would society’s makers get the impression that a large percentage of the able-bodied population will suckle on the teat of government until they’re forced to work for a living?

    “In the Bronx in April of this year, “huge crowds” lined up at an “income tax business” run out of a “99 cent store” to turn over their financial information and IDs to get a “prepaid debt card” allegedly worth $1,000, claimed to be “Obama stimulus money.”

    …Or how about the reaction to rent vouchers in 2010?

    Sixty people were taken to hospitals Wednesday in this Atlanta suburb after a lengthy wait and an angry mob scene in a sweltering shopping-center parking lot. Those treated for heat exposure and injuries from scuffles were among 30,000 people who had lined up for a waiting list for just 455 vouchers to cover part of their rent.

    Some camped out for nearly three days in temperatures that neared 100 degrees, including pregnant women, elderly in wheelchairs and people who drove down from New York City and Philadelphia, hoping to get on the waiting list in East Point for Housing Choice, or Section 8, vouchers.

    What’s fascinating is that people will stand on line for hours, for a 1-in-65 chance that they’ll get a voucher for part of their rent, rather than seek more reliable methods of making money to pay for that rent. –Jim Geraghty

    The concept of an unchecked entitlement state is anything but new:

    “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations has been 200 years.” -―Alexis de Tocqueville

    This is what we’re fighting against: societal collapse.

  • Patty

    I conclude. Words may have sounded too intelligent for the liberal mind. And Obama is making hay over this and from what I have research about Obama, Wait, Romney is just getting starting. And Romney is right.

    If the thickheaded skulls of the liberals are that stupid so be it. I personally don’t give a crap.

    College suspends professor for allegedly attempting to force students to vote for Obama

    A college professor has been placed on leave after she allegedly forced her class to sign a pledge to vote for President Obama in the upcoming elections.

    Early last week Professor Sharon Sweet at Brevard Community College (BCC) allegedly told students to sign a pledge that reads: “I pledge to vote for President Obama and Democrats up and down the ticket.”

    A college professor has been placed on leave after she allegedly forced her class to sign a pledge to vote for President Obama in the 2012 elections.

    The pledge was printed off of, a website funded by the Obama campaign.

    University administrators said they learned about the incident late Thursday afternoon and launched an investigation, after they received a phone call from a concerned parent.

    “Based on the allegations, Associate Professor Sweet has requested, and been granted, a leave of absence without pay effective immediately,” reads a statement put out by John Glisch, Associate Vice President for Communications at BCC.

    “The college will continue its investigation into the matter, which will include interviews with all students in her class,” continues the statement.

    Sweet’s actions may have also violated Florida’s election laws.

    Section 104.31, of Title IX in chapter 104, states that “no officer or employee of the state… shall… use his or her official authority or influence for the purpose of interfering with an election or nomination of officer or influencing another person’s vote or affecting the result thereof.”

    Ain’t that a kick in the head?

  • bitterclinger

    Go Mitt Go! We have sat back and watched the nation we all love be destroyed from the inside out for FOUR LONG YEARS now it is time to fight back. FIGHT BACK HARD AND DON’T LET UP Expose Obama for who he is.
    Give the American people a clear choice, they deserve no less.

    I am a naturalized citizen from Asia. I take my voting right seriously and I make sure that I am well informed about the candidates and the issues I will be voting for. What frustrates me is when I vote I notice that there is a translation in Spanish language and not in mine. I believe that if one cannot speak, read and write in English, they have no business voting. i shared this with my friends and they readily agreed with me and one even went further, that anyone who receives government dole out should not be voting either, he called it, conflict of interest.

    The Red one… 😆

    Yes, they want it all, sit on their butts and eat their Cheetos. There are those who can work the system and get more money from the government than from a full time job.

    Why not, great gig if you can get it. But…………. that isn’t they way America rolls. And the sooner they are forced to look for a job continuously until the find work, part time or full, no more hand out. And real training programs that actually work. If a prisoner can take over Americans jobs, well, why is it that the average bum living off our taxes dollars can’t.

    Pelosi loves this program of food stamps ads on the stuff. She thinks it is great thing for the economy or maybe it was this clown:

    Steny Hoyer: Food Stamps, Welfare Programs Stimulate the Economy

    These politicians need to be voted out of office. This is beyond dignity for the American standard of morals, it demoralizes Americans. And it is a disease today that is spreading like cancer.

    So Mitt is right!! And I say it may hurt but that can get over and we will get over Obama he is ruining this nation.

    Two American companies lay off hundreds as military uniforms to be made by prison labor……ployment-lines

    What the hell is going on.

  • Patty

    Over the past two years, as U.S. unemployment remained near double-digit levels and the economy shed jobs in the wake of the financial crisis, over a million foreign-born arrivals to America found work, many illegally.

    Those are among the findings of a review of U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and Census Bureau data conducted exclusively for Reuters by researchers at the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University in Boston.

    Often young and unskilled or semi-skilled, immigrants have taken jobs Americans could do in areas like construction, willing to work for less wages. Others land jobs that unemployed Americans turn up their noses at or lack the skills to do.

    With a national unemployment rate of 9.4 percent, domestic job creation is at the top of President Barack Obama’s agenda and such findings could add to calls to tighten up on illegal immigration. But much of it is Hispanic and the growing Latino vote is a key base for Obama’s Democratic Party.

    Many of the new arrivals, according to employers, brought with them skills required of the building trade and found work in sectors such as construction, where jobless rates are high.


    And here is the problem, there are jobs, some may not be in your hometown or even state but if things were going off the cliff at home then move to a place where hiring is great but my point is more jobs are for prisoners and illegals. NOW THAT IS STUPID. BUT A FACT.

    Welcome to America (whenever that happened). With respect to multilingual ballots I agree 100% – no translations should be permitted. To vote one has to be a citizen and, if naturalized, demonstrated a minimal competency in English and civics.

    Your friend’s opinion re: govt. dole and conflict of interest is also spot-on.

    In a galaxy far, far away, you had to be a white, male landowner to vote. Can’t agree with the ‘white’ or the ‘male’, but I’m not sure that one who owns no property or pays no taxes is qualified to express an opinion, i.e. vote.
